Oliver the Great Western Engine

Summary:
   He is a well known and well liked from fans young and old. He is #11 and one of the originals from Thomas and Friends.
Oliver was introduced in the episode Escape but was made famous in Toad Stands By. (The episode where he destroyed S.C. Ruffey) He was saved from scrap by Douglas and was making waves ever since in the world of T&F. Known as "The Little Western" he has become close to or just as popular as the other Great Western Duck.

Reasons for Production:
   Oliver was saved by Douglas (as mentioned before) but since Donald AND Douglas are being made people will want to buy this trio.
They would also increase the number of SC Ruffey's sold too because they will want that combo.
Oliver is only a 0-4-2 and will be easier to model rather than another tender engine like Hank.
Since he is so well liked many people will buy him to add to the collection.
Since we have skipped #8 to go on to 9 and 10 I say why not try for 8 and make 11 as well.


Episodes:
    He has been featured in multiple episodes such as Gordon take a shortcut but starred in more of his own.
He has been in Oliver's Find, Toad Stands By, Escape, Busy Going Backwards and many more timeless tales


These are only the important reasons why Oliver should be made.
Tell me what you think of my best review so far. (that is only my opinion)
I would like to also thank Chaz and Sparks for the help.

Great post. All Bachmann can do now though, is suggest to HiT to make a HO Scale model of him... It's all up to them after all, or I'm sure Bachmann would've been giving us all the engines 1 by 1 all this time. I wish this luck!

IF it were up to Bachmann alone then of course they would...but they work in conjunction with HiT.

A year and a few months ago someone did make a petition when they were trying to get the Scots. Someone on youtube linked it all over his channel and I signed off on it. You can make a petition, on a blog or something. I'm not sure how he did it, but it may have helped the Scots be created.

While you sign the PETITION in my signature to bring the classic theme music to CD (or digital download), you can create your own.

Fair enough... am I right to assume the "96" in your user-name means more than just a random number? lol Tongue

Don't mind my double post but which color do you like better? The original or the snow picture's color. I like the 2nd picture better but if made it should be original at least his face was always the same not like the narrow gauge. (Sir Handel and Peter Sam)

the color in the 2nd picture is too bright, the color in the 1st picture is the exact color of Oliver.
