About Reverend W. Awdry

Wilbert Vere Awdry, OBE, (15 June 1911 – 21 March 1997), better well-known as the Reverend W. Awdry, was a clergyman, railway enthusiast and children's writer. He is ideal termed as the writer of The Railway Series of books in which the character Thomas the Tank Engine originated. Reverend W Awdry was born in Romsey, Hampshire in 1911. The son of the clergyman, he was educated at Dauntseys School, West Lavington, Wiltshire; St Peter's Hall, Oxford (BA, 1932), and Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. He was ordained into the Anglican priesthood in 1936. In 1938 he married Margaret Wale, and 2 years later took a curacy in St. Nicholas' Church, Kings Norton, Birmingham where he lived until 1946. He subsequently moved to Cambridgeshire, serving as Rector of Elsworth with Knapwell, 1946-53, and Vicar of Emneth, 1953-65. He retired from full-time ministry in 1965, and moved to Stroud, Gloucestershire.

The characters that would create Awdry distinguished, and the initial stories featuring them, were invented in 1943 to amuse his son Christopher during a bout of measles. After Awdry wrote The Three Railway Engines, Christopher desired a model of Gordon; nonetheless, that has been too difficult. Instead, Awdry prepared a model of the tank engine from odds and ends and painted it blue. Christopher christened the model engine Thomas. Next Christopher requested stories about Thomas and these duly followed and were published in the distinguished book Thomas the Tank Engine, introduced in 1946. The initially book (The Three Railway Engines) was published in 1945, and by the time Awdry stopped composing in 1972, The Railway Series numbered 26 books. Christopher subsequently added further books to the series.

Awdry's enthusiasm for railways didn't stop at his magazines. He was included in railway preservation, and built model railways, which he took to exhibitions around the nation. Awdry wrote alternative books besides those of The Railway Series, both fiction and non-fiction. The story Belinda the Beetle was about a red vehicle (it became a Volkswagen Beetle just in the illustrations to the paperback editions). Wilbert Awdry was granted an OBE in the 1996 New Year’s Honours List, but by that time his wellness had deteriorated and he was unable to travel to London.
