Egmont have revealed more information on the new 42nd Railway Series book titled, Thomas and his Friends.
In an email by modelsofsodor concerning a possible stories reveal, Egmont responded with the synopsis to the four stories due to be featured in the book.
The full title of Volume 42 is "Thomas and His Friends", and it features four stories:
Thomas and the Swan: In which Thomas rescues a swan from a bridge parapet, and Pip and Emma make a welcome return, Buffer Bashing: In which Donald and Douglas cause trouble by smashing into the buffers.
Gordon's Fire Service: In which Gordon proves a hero on the scene of a fire and Centenary: In which the engines prepare to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the Thin Controller but must work quickly to make sure the celebration happens after an important bridge collapses.
However, Egmont noted that the sales information you may have seen online was uploaded long before the book was written, so the storylines have changed slightly since then.
The 42nd Railway Series book, Thomas and his Friends hits UK book shelves on July 4th 2011.
