1946 edition dust jacket cover (Thanks to ReproJackets for sharing this with us)

Thomas the Tank Engine is the 2nd book of The Railway Series published in 1946. However, when it was published in 1946, it had illustrations done by Reginald Payne instead of the ones done by Clarence Reginald Dalby. The 1946 edition was now lost but the original illustration example was found by TEngine on TTTE Wikia. In 2016, Daniel Celano won the auction on eBay and bought the original 1946 edition with the original illustrations.
