When Arthur first came to the Island, he had never been in an accident. He was very careful and very proud of his spotless record. Thomas was jealous and schemed to cause Arthur to get into his very first accident. Thomas apologized to Arthur and now the two are friends. Arthur is a handsome engine, red with the letters LMS on his side.
Arthur is part of the magical world of Thomas & Friends. The engines all work and play together on the Island of Sodor. While they are doing their very useful work, they learn important lessons about friendship and getting along. Many of the characters are available to purchase as part of different toy brands, including the timeless Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Series. You can purchase Thomas and many of his engine friends, as well as wooden track, buildings, destinations and sets from the simple oval to the Deluxe Tidmouth Sheds set. Many engines are available on a limited basis and are retired, so check ebay or other online auction sites for your favorites if you can't find them here or in a store near you.
