Description

James the Red Engine rushes under the bridge to take freight cars to the Yard, but he is going too fast and falls off the track into a field of cows. Thomas saves the day by bringing a special breakdown train that helps lift James back onto the rails. Back at the shed, the workmen make James as good as new.

The working wheels at the bottom of the book let Thomas fans take James for a ride, too!




About the Author
In 1944, a country vicar, the Reverend W Awdry, wrote the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personalities. In 1945, the first book featuring Thomas and the other Really Useful Engines was published, and in the 60 years since, the tales of these friendly engines have become beloved classics around the world.
