Railway Series reference in 'King' film reveals new book

King of the Railway is to include an element from The Railway Series books when released.

As part of a Sticker Activity Book tie-in, the revelation of a lost crown of Sodor is owned by a former king, as the book's summary reveals.

The Earl of Sodor has come to visit the island, and he wants to reopen Ulfstead Castle. All the engines have a job to do, but poor old Stephen doesn't think he'll be able to help.

Can Thomas help Stephen find a way to be useful? Relive the action from the movie and help Thomas and Friends find King Godred's lost crown in this activity book complete with stickers!

The Godred reference dates back to the Mountain Engines book in The Railway Series, where a Sudrian figure known as Godred MacHarold ruled the reigns of Sodor for a number of years as king.

In the story Bad Look-Out, Culdee tells a tale of Godred, a careless mountain engine who was named after MacHarold.

King of the Railway: The Movie premieres in the UK, US, Germany and Australia from this September while the Sticker Activity Book hits UK book shelves on September 2nd.
