The Thomas the Tank Engine stamps will be six stamps showing characters from the television series and a miniature sheet showing book illustrations.

Thomas is naturally the 1st class value, with James as the 66p and Percy as the 68p. Daisy is the 76p while Toby is the £1.00 and Gordon the £1.10.

The four stamps in the miniature sheet show Thomas, James, Percy and Henry in scenes from the book with captions.
