I remember when I bought the 1st season of Thomas. I was so excited and worried that I was to old getting the same episodes on DVD.

I read something somewhere online a few months ago after the 1st season came out there were coming out with season 2 the next year. Sadly it never happened.

I love the voice narration of Ringo Starr and George Carlin. To bad the newer rerelease versions had the current narrator. He didn't have the feel or voice to really separate the characters. Half the time it sounds one sided.

I would like it if they did remade the Gordon's composition and brake coaches.

Since I have 3 coaches I think the CGI version would be okay. But the only difference would be the yellow stripe between the cream and green.

Bachmann can't make Splatter and Dodge, due to their lack of relevance; being obscure characters.

The mainland diesels (like Ulli) in the CGI series have no merchandise whatsoever. No promotion, or marketing.


I totally forgot about those characters. They were with Diesel 10 in the Magic Railroad.

I run Gordon on Bachmann track. If tbone is using peco than their radius will be different??

Safe side use a different locomotive.

Gordon will not run well on 18' or lesser curves.

I did this a few years ago. When I didn't feel like taking out the 22" curves (I believe in his train set). So I used the track from the Thomas set.

He moved quite slowly and struggled around the curves to the point of derailing. Any more movement than 3 loops I might have to replace his wheels and gears.
 
He needs 22" and higher. Not less than that.

Hey Chaz,

What's your preparation of taking off faces? Would the same technique on freight cars.

Does everybody else thinks that this little island is getting overpopulated with trains?

I understand the main characters of Thomas, the narrow gauge, vehicles, and people. We have to realize that this show has changed and we may not like everything.

I stayed with the original version within season 1-4 but I do branch out within other seasons.

I ran my Rheneas locomotive a few days ago with my NYC U25B since they ran on the same track.
He was a very good smooth quiet runner. I wish I had freight cars for him to pull.

I watch the Thomas shows over on YouTube. 

Right now it's hard to predict season 22 without watching it yet.

Impressive, most impressive.

I thought I can check it myself. Since it was still in the box, if my was warped.

Luckily I have a non default version. I still haven't ran it yet.

I love your line up Grandpuff.

Where they on your layout or a conversion layout train show?

I received my Rheneas in the mail early today.

I do agree with you he does has a more orange paint to him. In the right light he has an orangeiy reddish tint.

I will try to test run soon.
