hot i got my little boy some of them yesterday
This always confuses me. Thomas isn't a tank, he's a train? Or more specifically, a tank engine. There are no guns, armour plating (as far as I can tell) or caterpillar tracks.
Just trying to help

"The square tanks beside the boiler are what make Thomas a "tank engine." … "The square tanks beside the boiler are what make Thomas a "tank engine." In real life, the tanks might hold between 1,000 and 2,000 gallons (4,000 to 8,000 liters) of water, depending on the engine. On the other engines in the series, the coal car shown is simplified. In a real steam engine, the coal car carries both coal and thousands of gallons of water (up to 20,000 gallons or 80,000 liters on the biggest engines). This water is needed because most steam engines vent their used steam through the smoke stack rather than condensing and reusing it. All engines except tank engines need to carry these coal/water cars right behind the engine."-

Thanks, but I wasn't questioning why he was called a tank engine as I know that's his correct title. I'm confused as to why he's so often referred to as Thomas the 'tank'. He's not battle ready as far as I can tell and wouldn't take a direct hit from a wine gum, never mind artillery shells.
