Elizabeth II (born as Elizabeth Alexandra Mary on 21 April 1926) has been Queen of the United Kingdom since 1952.


The Queen first appeared to meet the residents of the Island of Sodor after her coronation. Gordon was honoured by pulling her train and Thomas sorted the coaches for it, while Edward cleared the line ahead. She was greeted and honoured by Sir Topham Hatt, and told the controller that she had a splendid run and wanted to meet the engines.

Television series

She also appeared in the fifth season song, Sir Topham Hatt.


  • She presumably appeared as an allusion to her coronation in the same year the book was published. The Reverend W. Awdry had also sent the royal family Railway Series volumes to read to the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
