|Message||First saw Wilbert Awdry at the Central Hall around 1960. Then one weekend in 1969 visited Ted Boston in Cadeby. Wilbert was operating Ted's model railway, pipe in mouth. This was well before the celebrity age so he went unrecognised by most and was left to have fun. Somehow we found ourselves underneath the model railway marvelling at dozens of priceless Hornby and Bing Table Top trains. Equally surprisingly we moved outside and were allowed to drive a 2' gauge diesel up and down the Cadeby Light Railway! Health and Safety? Nah...but a wonderful day.|
On a serious note, I should point out that some of Rev. Awdry's annoyance at Britt Allcroft and successors was caused by their heavy booted attempts to extract cash from the Talyllyn Railway. Awdry had been a TR member since 1951, and the Skarloey Railway stories featured engines based on TR locos. Wilbert had been happy for the TR to promote special days to attract young people, using enamed engines. The Talyllyn robustly defended their corner in spite of lawyers' threats, and were supported by the Awdry family. As far as I know, Mammon was successfully repelled!

|How did you find us?||Searching for the Rev. Awdry's original models|
|Message||This is an amazing site. While the Wikia page says a lot on the engines and their appearinces, this site has a lot more information on the engine's base models along with pictures of the base models. I sometimes find the base models to be more interesting than the engine's themselves.|
I do find it interesting that you use the prototype images for some of the models, and that you list Fisher-Price Take-And-Play models as Learning-Curve Take-Along models.
I also noticed you have the metallic Take-Along Emily image as opposed to the regular one.

|Message||An excellent website, and getting better all the time. Some very early editions of the books are treasures, tattered and battered though they are. |
I encountered Rev Wilbert Awdry with his railway at the Model Railway Exhibition at the Central Hall in London. I wonder when that was? About 1956 or '57 perhaps? A very happy memory to be cherished. Railways have been part of my life ever since, sometimes professionally, and always as a hobby.

|Message||I was interested to see that the Wikipedia entry for Bertie The Bus uses your site to say Bertie was based upon an AEC Regal.|
I thought he looked much more like a Leyland Tiger TD1 ?
