Toby is a fictional anthropomorphic tram engine in The Railway Series by the Rev. W. Awdry and his son, Christopher; he also appears in the spin-off television series Thomas & Friends. He is a tram engine with cowcatchers and sideplates, carries the North Western Railway running number 7, and works on the same Ffarquhar Branch Line as Thomas. He used to work on a tramway between Lower Arlesburgh and Arlesdale End, before being bought by Sir Topham Hatt after his line closed down to run the tramroad to Ffarquhar Quarry. His line would later be reopened as part of the North Western Railway, with Toby being reallocated to his old shed. He has a coach named Henrietta. He first appeared in the seventh book in The Railway Series, Toby the Tram Engine in 1952, and appeared in several subsequent books. The second book focused on him was the 6th of Christopher Awdry's books, Toby, Trucks and Trouble.
