Network Rail and Thomas the Tank Engine have joined together to help young children learn about staying safe around the railway. This is the first time a Thomas and Friends™ book has covered a rail safety theme.
This brand new book sees Thomas on an exciting adventure around railway tracks, stations and level crossings – and he learns that staying safe is much more important than going fast or being silly!
