Sorry, but it's not going to happen, probally bot even in HO/OO. I mean they didin't even have a five year anniversery or original writer who grew up in Britain. Thomas has a 65 year anniversay and the Reverand Wilbert Awdry was the original writer before his book series was to be a TV series along with movies, and products. Chuggington only has five minute runtime episodes and stupid die-cast models that can't even connect with Take-Along Thomas. UP WITH THOMAS!!! DOWN WITH CHUGGINGTON!!!

I do remember that, cannot believe I forgot about that. But since ERTL models we have gotten Hornby, Learning curve, Take-Along, Tomy/Trackmaster, and of course Bachmann.

To go with what Sparks said, Thomas had something Chuggington probably won't, roots in reality. Of course those roots are almost dead now thanks to HiT, but nonetheless, I've seen clips of Chuggington, a sad excuse for a show. I've done better 3d animation, and I only took a semester long class.

Oh please, Britt accomplished that a long time ago with stuff like Magic Railroad and screwing up Season 3s plots. Tongue

What do you mean by screwing up season 3 plots?

But the series in my opinion was still going well and had nice episodes up until the first episode in season 8.

Thank you Pasquelle, Britt did a good job. My dad, who is 50 years old enjoyed Thomas along with me. Then HiT took over and now I only watch the clips for the 3d animation.

I've been thinking and I've decided that Chuggington is not the best. Too many diesels and too much stretchyness.

Not a problem. After all, Casey Junior is more tolerateable then chuggington. Did I mention i plan to make my own fan series using G scale Items? It will be called Narrow Gauge Engines.
