How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends are based on the Railway Series of books written by the Reverend W. Awdry (1911-1997). The stories were created in 1942 to entertain the Reverend's son, Christopher, who was confined to bed with the measles.
This is one of a series of caches dedicated to finding Thomas (Where's Thomas?) but first you have to find his friends. Thomas is a cheeky, fussy little engine who wears #1 on his side and never lets anyone forget it. Joining him in his adventures on the Island of Sodor are his engine friends, including cheerful Percy, moody James and the proud but boastful Gordon.
They are joined by the coaches Annie and Clarabel, Bertie the Bus, Terence the Tractor and Harold the Helicopter, to name a few. Sir Topham Hatt, Superintendent of the railroad, is the kindly boss who keeps everyone in order.
Henry is a steam engine from the television series, Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. He was one of the first engines to ever appear in The Railway Series books by the Rev.W.Awdry. Henry lives and works on the Island of Sodor, along with other characters in the show. He is engine number 3 on the railway, a 4-6-0 Mainline Steam Engine and is painted green with red stripes.
Henry, was the third story, 'The Sad Story of Henry', had its origins in a limerick:
Once an engine attached to a train
Was afraid of a few drops of rain.
It went into a tunnel
And squeaked through its funnel
And never came out again.
Find Henry and he will help you find Thomas! (Is he in the tunnel at Yarwell?)
