A lot of people have wondering,
Will season 18 be better than season 17?
We saw the return of some good old friends like Duck and Bill and Ben and we got to see a bit more of the newer characters such as Connor, Caitlin, Stephen, Luke and Millie. (Love the 'Cowboy' seen!!)
We also got to see Ulfstead Castle in more detail, but anyway, back to the point!
So far in Season 18, well, OLIVER AND TOAD!!!!
If you check out my profile you will see I like Oliver and I freaked when I saw him in full CGI in Toad's Adventure, (Pretty annoying the way you don't see Oliver's face in the TOTB Trailer)
Then we got to see another old friend, Henrietta, In a completely different way, Cool that she now has a face!
We also got to see a small bit more of the new c…

Somebody should start a campaign to get all the Learning Segments from the New Series on DVD. Or, at the least, find someone who has the learning segments, and get them uploaded to youtube. Those learning segments have rare footage, and feature characters like Butch, Trevor, Duck & other engines who were missing throughout the new series. I've watched some of them on youtube, but you can barely see the picture. I love The New Series, mainly for these random Easter eggs, where characters who have been absent, have minor roles in these segments, and it gives us a small glimpse into what it would have been like, had they had bigger roles. I can't start a campaign, because I really don't have that much time to spare. But it would be a good ide…Read more >

ATTENTION: Please take note that this is NOT a typical episodic review from "The Coffey Reviewer" as yet, but I will be thinking about doing more of it with the last episodes of the seventeenth series, and then onto the eighteenth series too! (After the UK TV airings that is)
Plus as promised on Twitter, I will be giving my perspectives on the programme of the DVD itself from HiT Entertainment and Lionsgate - and it will also be spoiler free. So now lets get started!
For an exclusive DVD at Wal-Mart in the United States of America, this goes to show that the front cover and the disc, on both the DVD and slip-case, looks interesting with a picture of Thomas and the ever mischievious Troublesome Trucks. (or Foolish Freight Cars in terms…

As you know my three favourite narrators are Ringo Starr, George Carlin and Michael Angelis. But some people have different ideas who are your top 3 favourite narrators?

As we all know, the first Seven Series of Thomas and Friends are classic. But some are torn over which side is better. Side one is the RWS based episode side, Series 1-4. Side two is the original story episodes, Series 5-7. Both sides have their perks, and both have some minor problems. RWS has the nostalgia effect, and the original story has adventure. We all have our own opinions, so tell me yours below.Read more >
What if there is a 1988 direct to video series called "Really Useful Engines". If there is, it would be all narrated by Ringo Starr in both UK and US. It would've taken place between Season 2 and 3, and use the music from TUGS and Season 3.
- Stop Theif
- Super Rescue
- Percy's Passangers
- Old Stuck Up
- Crossed Lines
- Fire Engine
- Deep Freeze
- Gordon & The Difficult Rails
- Old Groaner
- Bear To The Rescue
- Old Stuck Up
- The Works Diesel
- Martin - An oil-tank built engine, who is saved from scrap by Bear.
Ringo Starr makes my heart sound happy, and Alec Baldwin is too. I am being a fan of Ringo Starr and Alec Baldwin, however some people like either Alec Baldwin or Ringo Starr. Who did you think narrated the series better?

Hello! I am Oliver11GWR, a somewhat new user here. I joined about two weeks ago, and I would like to tell you that I love the Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia.
I love this wiki because it is very simple and easy-to-use, but it is also very well detailed on its articles (mostly). I want to congratulate the administration and staff for keeping a (mostly) spam-free and professional looking site. This wiki has so much well-organized information, and thousands of contributors committed to keeping a professional website. It also has a lot of nice users that are friendly and like to chat. I've made friends with a few myself.
Overall, I love this wiki and I would give it 6 out of 5 stars!!!! Thank you.Read more >
(It's not very clear whether this against the rules or not, so I'll take a risk)
Just wanted to say I'll be taking a leave from the wikia for an unknown period of time. Nothing has happened to me over the wiki, of course, but I have had a few unfortunate incidents that have kept me from coming to the site. (If you're wondering why I'm not on chat as much, this is why)
I love this site. I'll be taking a break for bit. If not, I'm sorry. It's really fun here and share in this wonderful and successful site we have created.

What would you like to see as a 2014 WR gift pack? It has been a long time since we have seen one. I never got one, by the way. I do think it is fun to make up your own! So what do you want, to see? A lot of gift packs? Minimum of gift packs? None at all? Or even comment on the ones you have! So please leave a comment below on what Wooden Railway Gift packs you would like to see in 2014! Be as creative as you can be!
We are some of my ideas:
- Christmas Gift Pack: Thomas, Percy, and Rosie (all wearing Santa Hats)
- Metallic Gift Pack: Thomas, Percy, and Rosie (Rosie's wheels are red)
- Classic Gift Pack: Thomas, Annie, and Clarabel (all normal)
- Halloween Gift Pack: Rosie, Pumpkin Cargo Car, and New Halloween Caboose (Halloween themed Rosie)
- Emily Gift…

Well, I've been talking about it for some time, but now, it's time. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce... Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends (The 2018 Fanfilm). It is currently under development model, live action, and animation wise. The script for this film is currently being written with two other writers, Calebtrain and CrazyRacer12.
This film will be like a majorly re-written version of TATMRR, without the Shining Time Station element, and without Lily, Patch, Mutt, P.T. Boomer, Lady, and the Magic Railroad. It only takes place on Sodor, and it will run like a normal railway. Plus, it will be a bit darker, not saying it will be like a horror-type fa…

Oh well! It was a big disappointment to find out that the new character named Henrietta was Toby's coach. Well, no worries. At least we know now that she may have lines. But that's not the reason why I made this blog post. No, I have realized that every named piece of rolling stock that has been in the television series has made it to Take-n-Play besides Henrietta (along with Old Slow Coach). So my question now is, Do you think Henrietta will make it to Take-n-Play now since she has a face. For me personally, Annie, Clarabel, The Troublesome Trucks, Hector, Rocky and Toad have made it so I don't see why not. Vote in the poll below.

Hi Everyone. I'm Dale (or known as Percyplunge and MrTrainfan1000). I haven't written any blogs for awhile, but heres the first one of the year. I never written anything about the upcoming theatrical Thomas movie. So here it is. These are only my opinions and my thoughts and no one elses.
In the beginning.....
When the first mention of another theatrical Thomas movie, and Josh Klausner was writting the script. I was excitied to know more. Since it was first mention, nothing was said more until the Movie poster was released. It included information that Shane Acker was directing and the film description:

Hey, everyone! This is Jonathan again and I'm going to express my opinion on the Thomas the Tank Engine Wikia.
What can I say about the wikia is that it has lots of i formation of the Thomas series. I like the galleries, the pages, the admins and the polls too.
I am really enjoying myself there and if I need to find out more about Thomas, I choose the Wikia.
I find it a bit similar to Wikipedia, except the Wikia has a background and is updated every time.
Well, that's all i can say right now and I hope you Thomas fans have a lovely day.
Goodbye!Read more >
Trouble With Sodor Island Fansite

I think many of you may have noticed....The Wikia is Blacked Out! Well, not exactly down, it's just a temporary theme. It is still easy to edit and chat. Both of those are great characteristics of this website. The internet is a great thing. It is one of the last frontiers. It is a great experiment with digital freedom. We take these freedoms for granted. It turns out, the NSA (National Security Agency) has been collected private data via the internet all over the world. It is not just Americans. This agency can use their power to collect data from any device connected to the internet. Privacy for everyone has been lost. Who knows what other freedoms we may loose next.

Hey everyone! I know this is late to post, but I want to express my thoughts on Season 17, since so many things have improved in it. Most of which are:
- Arc's animation really looks better than Nitrogen Studios' animation (I don't know why, but the engines look more realistic with Arc's animation than Nitrogen's).
- There is not use an abundance of stock footage in every episode like there was in the previous seasons.
- The dialogue between the characters is better and not repetitive (I don't know how to explain this, but I mean they talk to each other like they did in the earlier seasons).
- There's a whole lot more new camera angles and shots in this season and not too many of them were used over and over again in every episode, like in seasons 13…
Well, as Dryaw had returned in Season 17, I'd love it if the Brenner-Arc team brought back more classic locations such as Skarloey, Rheneas, etc...on the Skarloey Railway and on the NWR, Thomas' branchline specificily, Ffarqhuar and Elsbridge. to start....

Hello everyone! Here's my third review, "Bill or Ben?" featuring some of Andrew Brenner’s favourite characters, Bill and Ben.
The introduction of the episode showed the similarities of the twins and the close-ups of their nameplates which was a really good start. The episode also had some pretty good background music during the scenes of the races and a lot of autumn trees were seen around Sodor which might be why the episode aired in October. I believe it's the first time we see the twins going through Henry's tunnel, obviously in the CGI series. When Connor past the red signal I really thought he was going to hit Henry, but I was relieved when he didn’t.
I was really shocked to see Bill in his blue colour and I knew that Ben would be sneaky eno…

I was just wondering: are there any high-quality videos (or screenshots) of the Great Discovery learning segments? It's an odd question, I know, but I do need them for a project of mine, namely the one that describes the differences between Thomas and Stanley. I have seen the learning segment on YouTube, however the quality is rather poor, and I lost my DVD copy of the special. If anyone has any pics, that would be great. :)Read more >

Hello everyone again! Here is my second short review on the wikia (first one was Gone Fishing) and it’s about the Season 17 episode "No More Mr. Nice Engine".
It was good to see Hiro having more speaking roles this season and he's still showing his very wise and kind personality around the engines, even the ducks at the start. I was also pleased to hear Diesel having a main role as well. At one point, Diesel said "Mind your own business" to Edward which made me laugh so hard. I believe The Fat Controller had a bit of bad luck after his trousers got soaked in milk, twice. At the end of the episode, Hiro said to Diesel that if he stays polite and kind, he might also be a Master of the Railway and I was like "Devious Diesel a Master of the Rail…

This is my very first review, and a short one, on the wikia and it’s about the season 17 episode “Gone Fishing” which marks the return and the first CGI voice role of Harvey the crane engine.
At the beginning of the episode, a couple of cranes on Sodor appear and show us what their jobs are which is a good introduction to the episode. We also see Bill and Ben back in their original colours after their experience in Bill or Ben? and they are still in good character. Plus, The Sodor China Clay Works was mentioned which might mean a possible return. I think Porter was helpful to Harvey when he sees the positive side of being both an engine and a crane. The accident was quite shocking to me but Harvey manages to fix it easily.

Haven't done this for a while, so here's my review of the third week of Season 17!
11. The Lost Puff: I was worried about this one initially, but it proved itself... Mostly. There is some great dialogue in there, especially between Stephen and Paxton, and between Toby and, well, everyone. In general, the animation is superb: the ten-week hiatus clearly gave Arc time to refine and improve the animation. And a shoutout to the duck. Pure class.
However, I will question where Paxton was taking his load. In my mind, it seems that they gave Paxton trucks so that he wouldn't be wandering around light-engine. But overall, the good points outweighed the bad! 8.5 / 10
12. The Thomas Way: I tried to watch this from a neutral viewpoint. I really did. But wh…Read more >
Hey Guys, it's James the Train Lover. I was wondering, when will Fisher Price make these Trackmasters:
I know that Millie is said to be coming soon, but no pics were even found. What about the other engines? Maybe not a Battery Winston but atleast an Unmotorized one would be ok. Norman and Sidney don't have one and they've been around since 2011. and Lastly, BoCo got a Trackmaster Model, why not Daisy? Comment what you think :)18:24, January 11, 2014 (UTC) Read more >
Now, in my thoughts on Season 17 blogpost I put that I really didn't like the Smelly Kipper. In my overall S17 review, people commented that I was being a little too mean on this episode. I have confessed I might have been slightly harsh, but then again, it really didn't click with me. Here are some reasons.
So, at the start of the episode, we here James talking about spooky stories. For a start, it isn't very spooky, and secondly, Percy has gone back to being a small scared engine, which like in Season 15, which nobody likes! Then, Henry challenges James to go and pull the flying kipper, which is impossible, as James’ crew should have gone home for the night, and Henry’s crew shouldn’t have. So why was James able to just leave, without ale…Read more >
As you have may already notice on my profile page, my characters are James and Oliver. Well seen in a recently released trailer - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZtGgnxNE8E&feature=youtu.be&a - Oliver is passing Duck with break vans. Now you probably know what I am going to do now...*fan orgasm*...OH MY GOD OLIVER IS COMING BACK!!!. Yes he is returning, and he looks wonderful in CGI. No face yet though, sad. But I hope that he just doesn't make a cameo scene like he does in the trailer, that would make me...erm...*cries*. But what's your thought's on Oliver's return, is it good? or bad? (I hope it's not bad).Read more >
After rewatching Misty Island Rescue, I'm trying to figure out its' history and how the Logging Loco Trio arrived there.
Here's my speculation.
Misty Island used to be a logging camp filled with inhabitants, guessing with all of the cabins and broken machinery that's in the island. Then, Dash,
Bash, and Ferdinand arrive there after being sent away from the mainland due to their mischief. The mainland controller hopes they'll learn to behave
there after causing trouble there, but that soon changed the island itself. Everything was fine until the logging crane Ol' Wheezy started having a mind of his own and the Logging Locos started it as well, thinking it's funny to
fool around as it was they did on the mainland.
Soon, chaos rained all over the i…

Drivers and Whistles
Based on Wonky Whistle by Neil Ben
The whistle is a very important part to a steam locomotive. It alerts people, cars and animals that they are coming to a road crossing, and the signalman’s job is to ensure everyone is safe. Diesels don’t have whistles; they have electric horns instead which works the same way as a whistle. The engines also blow their whistles and horns when passing by each other to say hello.
One January morning, Thomas, Percy and Toby were getting ready for the day’s work. The Fat Controller arrived at Ffarquhar Sheds with Thomas’ driver, his son, and an unfamiliar man.
“As you know, Thomas,” the Fat Controller began, “your driver, Jacob Phillips is being promoted as stationmaster for Hackenbeck.”

To help out the admins, we are considering adding two new staff positions (with a couple users in each roll) to the team!
The first is image control. This give a user the right to rename and delete images. This would be useful in many obvious ways!
The second is comment control. This position gives a user the right to delete comments from blogs and article comments (if we go through with that). Again, useful in many ways!
The reason we're bringing this up here is to enable the postions, apparently we now need community concent. A little strange, but whatever! Tells what you think! Should we add these? Share your thoughts!Read more >
As I've done with the last couple seasons, I will do a review of Season 17. The reviews will be no longer than a paragraph or so, maybe even shorter. Enjoy!
I like and dislike this episode at the same time. It had the 3 strike formula, but it was used properly in this episode. However, it did seem similar to most of the episodes over the last couple seasons. 6/10
Kinda reverse plot of his debut episode. In his debut, he wants to work and not get cleaned. In this episode, he gets cleaned and doesn't want to work. I'm a fan of Whiff and Scruff, and I'm pretty glad the 2 of them get an episode to themselves, they don't get them very often. 8/10
I like episodes that are similar to The Runaway, even more so due to the fact they don't happen often.…

Hello, I'm Sugar Rush Speedway, and down on the candy-coated racetrack of awesomeness, we'll be reviewing one of the most hyped-up seasons of Thomas and Friends. Say goodbye to Nitrogren and Miller, and say hello to Andrew Brenner and Arc Productions, and let's also give a warm welcome back to four characters who made their comeback this season. That's right, today we'll be reviewing Season 17. I'll also be doing reviews on previous specials and seasons over the next few months as well, so stayed tune.

I'm very glad that five classic charecters were able to see the light of day in King of the Railway and The seventeenth season.
