However, when the book was first published in 1946, '''it had illustrations done by Reginald Payne instead of the now iconic drawings done by Clarence Reginald Dalby'''. Though he remained uncredited, Payne's illustrations were praised for being bolder and eye-catching than the illustrations of the previous book. The Rev W. Awdry himself was very pleased with the illustrations, with the exception of certain goofs such as various point work and track inaccuracies and James being blue in one image, with said goofs being fixed in C. Reginald Dalby's revised edition in 1950. Payne was due to be brought back to do the illustrations for ''James The Red Engine'', but he had suffered a nervous breakdown by that point, and therefore couldn't do it. The 1946 illustrations were lost for a long time, with the exception of one original illustration found by TEngine on TTTE Wikia.

Thomas the Tank Engine is the 2nd book of The Railway Series published in 1946, and was the introduction of Thomas, arguably the series' most popular character. However, when the book was first published in 1946, it had illustrations done by Reginald Payne instead of the now iconic drawings done by Clarence Reginald Dalby. Though he remained uncredited, Payne's illustrations were praised for being bolder and eye-catching than the illustrations of the previous book. The Rev W. Awdry himself was very pleased with the illustrations, with the exception of certain goofs such as various point work and track inaccuracies and James being blue in one image, with said goofs being fixed in C. Reginald Dalby's revised edition in 1950. Payne was due to be brought back to do the illustrations for James The Red Engine, but he had suffered a nervous breakdown by that point, and therefore couldn't do it. The 1946 illustrations were lost for a long time, with the exception of one original illustration found by TEngine on TTTE Wikia.

On February 5th, 2017, TTTE Wikia user Thomas the tank engine updated the Wikia's page on Reginald to include all the original illustrations of the book.
