A series of models based on the iconic locomotive Thomas the Train are on display at the Western Railway Museum in Norfolk, south-west England.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the museum and the company Thomas the Railway, which created the series to celebrate the centenary of the opening of the new train station.
The first series was commissioned in 1965 by Thomas the Railroad as part of a collaboration with the city of Norfolk.
The show has been running at the museum for nearly 50 years.
Each model has been constructed to recreate the locomotive and is displayed in the exhibition as a work of art.
The museum has commissioned models of the locomotives’ original engines and accessories as well as other pieces of the train’s history, including a number of trains built by the original Thomas the Railways to take passengers between the stations.
The trains include the train from 1878 that took passengers on the opening day of the station, the first passenger train built by Thomas, and the train that transported Thomas and his family to New York for his birthday in 1881.
“Thomas the Railway is an iconic part of our local community and we are honoured to be able to work with them to celebrate this milestone in history,” museum director of exhibits Peter O’Keefe said.
Thomas the Train was built in 1879 to serve as the opening night of the Norfolk Southern Railway.
The original train, named the Thomas the Runaway, had a single track layout, but later moved to a two-track layout to create the new station.
A single-carriage train had been constructed for the station and the first Thomas the Troughton was built.
In addition to the trains, the museum also has train sets that include model trains, which are more elaborate than the original trains and can be seen in the exhibit.
The Thomas the First series was launched in May this year and has been going on for nearly four years.
One model train has already been completed and is due to be released in September.
Other Thomas the Track series models are being built in the museum.
The latest model train, a model of the first locomotive, is due out this month.
The museum has also unveiled models of a number, including the train in the Thomas and Thomas the Last Train series.
The museum is one of the world’s most extensive train collections and has a model railway museum and museum-like exhibition, with a collection of railway engines, models and other artefacts from the train, as well a collection dedicated to trains.
A replica of the railway that Thomas the Trainer used to travel from Newport to Liverpool was built for the museum in 2013.
The railway was originally built in Newport in the 1750s and was used for passenger service between Newport and Liverpool, but the train was replaced in 1883 when it became overcrowded.
A model of a locomotive built by Sir Thomas and Sir Thomas the Second trains is also on display.
