I understand what you are trying to prove with the thread but in all honesty I don't think that this thread is really necessary.  This is why we have the everything Thomas topic in the first place, and that is mainly to ask questions like those ones.  I mean some of those questions are good ones to save for the everything Thomas topic and they would be great topics to talk about there. ;)  For now though I think this topic should be deleted but the questions I think would be great for the everything Thomas topic. :)

Answer: It's called Spencer

     Actually, Spencer has the same type of wheel arrangement as Gordon, but does that mean he is bigger and faster?  He is streamlined, but that makes only slight changes in speed.

A4s (Spencer) were dang well good faster than the A1s (Gordon).

If a locomotive has a larger diameter drive wheel it is generally faster.

What if the show wasn't called Thomas the Tank Engine and Thomas wasn't in it? Who would be the main character and what would the show be called?

The Railway Series, and Gordon, Henry and Edward would be the main characters.

I would think that there would be no main character.  ;) Awdry liked giving the engies equal treatment, hence why before the show, there was only two books belonging to Thomas, the rest with him in it were more about his branch line in general. :P

What if they actually let off on Thomas' spotlight a tad and put more engines in the spotlight?  That would be cool.  Personally, I think Hank wont be as good as Gordon is... 
I can see the story now:
Thomas has to help Hank find buffers so he can feel really useful.

  i agree with you on that one or maybe they'll make an episode whit hank Murdoch and Henry to see which on is truly the strongest
