Rex is one of the three engines that work the Small Railway. He is the most level headed of the group which also includes Mike and Bert. He is a hard worker and is very kind, although he enjoys teasing Mike when he gets the chance. He was brought to the Island by Sir Topham Hatt to help bring ballast from the hills for the new branch line.
Rex 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.
