A lifelong railway enthusiast, Rev. W Awdry wrote 26 books in the railways series about a railway system on the Island of Sodor. His son, Christopher, was firstly an avid listener, then an enthusiastic reader of the books, before writing a further 16 himself bringing the total number of books in the series to 42.
It all started when a young Christopher was confined to bed suffering from measles at a time before TV, gameboys and iPads were standard bedroom accessories. To combat his son’s boredom, his father, a railway enthusiast, made up stories featuring trains.
