An imaginary railway map describing the island on which the adventures of Thomas the Tank Engine were set. This amusing and very decorative map was designed by the Rev. W. Awdry who conceived an island sited between Lancashire and the Isle of Man - a setting within Great Britain, but sufficiently isolated from the established British Railway network to allow him to do as he wished with the location. His design is bordered by small illustrations of the famous engines, the Fat Controller, animals and railway trackside equipment; the map identifies rivers, main roads, built up areas and narrow gauge lines and has a large numbered key identifying the locations of various happenings. A fair example with a little wear to old folds, backed on linen and in a board cover; One light stain to the left side appears but is not significant.
