Real-life History

Thomas Jnr. was built by Richards Engineering of North Wales and arrived on the Beer Heights Light Railway sometime in the 1970s. On July 14th 1975, Thomas Jnr. was unveiled by the Rev. W. Awdry on the railway's opening ceremony and had a face that was crafted for the event. The Revered had driven Thomas Jr. for the event and since then the railway had proven to be a great attraction for visitors and the original line had been extended.

Afterwards, Thomas Jnr. had by then been deemed unsuitable for passenger services as the line extended, and was withdrawn from service sometime in the early 1980s.
