After the Railway Series was published, many Thomas and Friends annuals were printed. They were hardcover with colour pictures and photos throughout the book. The annuals also featured a number of exclusive characters. The 1979 and 1980 annuals did not contain any new material by the Reverend W. Awdry, but did have articles about real railways and railway terminology. The annuals published between 1984-1993 had stories written by Christopher Awdry.
