Thomas’ Wonderful Life/Regular Update

Hey everyone, I know I say I was going to publish my Christmas special, Thomas’ Wonderful Life, before the new year, but I got some upsetting news for those of you who were interested: I’ve decided to cancel the special.

It’s because I’ve been busy lately like I said in my previous blog, and also because as I was writing, I realized I wasn’t going to finish it on time and the plot was becoming very complicated and it was going to be way too long to keep people interested in the story. So that’s why I decided to cancel the story overall.

However, despite canceling my special, I’m still going to continue the second season of my series and I’ll be starting up on it again soon, so look out for that.

Also, even though I canceled the special, I’m ha…

Christmas/New Year Update

Hay everyone! First of all, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! Second of all, I've been on yet another hiatus from my series lately mainly due to Christmas shopping and other things, but I'm back at it again and currently writing my Christmas special, Thomas' Wonderful Life. Yes it'll obviously be posted after Christmas and be a bit late, but my goal is to at least have it posted before the new year, so stay tuned for that. Also, as for my second season of TMAOTIOS, I will resume writing it again starting after New Year's, so stayed tuned for that as well :)

Once again, hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, be on the look out for my upcoming episodes, and Happy Holidays!!!

Hullo again. I actually was gonna include this in the December updates, but forgot (silly me!). Anyways, as the title suggests I'll be talking about translations. Translating what you might ask. Well, I've had this idea for a while but I've been thinking about translating some of my episodes into Spanish. I have also noted the use of French, German and other languages in several works on the wiki which is great since it works for characters such as Millie (actually makes it easier to read with a French accent). I'm not sure when I would start translating episodes but it'd go along with the rewrites, upcoming shorts, outside life, etc. It's just a fun thing I want to try soon so don't be if you see an episode in Español soon.

It's that time again. Christmas is near as well as many other Holidays. Anyways, here to give the latest on Adventures on Rails.

  • First off, I've gotten around to rewriting some of the episodes I'd said I would and most recently that was Molly's Special Job. I'm thinking of revising at least one episode/short each month.
  • On the subject of rewrites, the next two that I have planned are The Escape Plan and I'm highly considering Thomas and the Avalanche. For the latter, it includes Emily, Connor and Caitlin. I meant to integrate them into the series but for some reason, they haven't featured since so I'm think about changing their roles (in theory, I would've integrated everything from The Engines of Sodor, but that fell through). Either that o…

Thanksgiving Message

Hullo everyone! And a happy Thanksgiving. I just want to throw out this message to everyone in the Thomas community.

On this day of giving thanks, I really want to give thanks to this community that has a wealth of talent. From story-writers, actors, modellers, you name it, we've got it. There is so much original content that is fantastic to view. And yes, we may not agree always, but then no one ever does and it wouldn't be an interesting world without disagreements but so as long as we respect each other despite different opinions. I've mentioned before, I don't like the direction of the current show, but it makes me so happy to see people both on here, SiF, YouTube that make content that brightens up my day.

As for the current show, I've …

BWBA/Season 22 Analysis

Well recently I had to write an essay for my English class but I got stuck so whilst thinking about ideas, I side-tracked myself and wrote my overall analysis and thoughts into the most recent installment of the TV series.

I do want to point out that it is kinda sarcastic and some strong langauge (still within the guidelines of the wikia, of course). Feel free to leave questions or comments and I'll get back whenever I can.

Also remember that if you liked it, disliked it, kinda in middle, whatever your opinion is, I respect it and I can't force you to share my opinion. These are simply my thoughts I want to share since its been on my mind for while. But in that regard, I also except the same treatment in return.

  • Recently, I re-wrote The Football Special. I always dissatisfied with the episode since I first released it and using David's past at Leicester, I created a much better story. Check it out!
  • Of course, several more things will be rewritten. Next up will Molly's Special Job. I don't have an exact date but it'll be sometime this month so just look out for that.
  • Next March will see the release of Work and Play, introducing Jessie to the North Western Railway and based on a true story.
  • After that, the short James and Percy will be revised. Well, actually, I've wanted to revise it for quite a while but when I figured I should include…

Hullo! Lots of stuff this time around: recent releases, re-writes coming up, upcoming shorts, more ideas (BWBA opinions? oh my . . .) Grab a drink and/or snack and let's begin.

  • First off, I've released Real Engines on Saturday. The main reason as I've stated is to officially retcon and establish the pre-NWR life of Molly, Dodger and David. I've had this idea for about a year and now its all paid off.
  • With that said, there are several episodes in the Adventures on Rails series that will be revised. Most of it will just be to make sure they coincide with what was established in Real Engines. The Football Special is one episode that will be rewritten. Using David's past at Leicester, I have a fantastic idea for a story. Albeit not part of Adventu…

Alright, Autumn time, school's back and several new things coming up in Adventures on Rails.

  • First off, I originally meant to post these updates on Saturday but I have been working on a couple of things which revolve around Dodger, David and Molly's pre-Sodor life. I have posted an updated bio for the latter a couple days ago and I have been re-working David and Dodger's. For the former, the only significant change is his arrival date which is set after Molly's and coincides when his basis BR No. 68899 was actually near withdrawal. I specifically chose Molly's number because I realised it coincided with Dodger's at Norwich Thorpe for a period of time. Moving onto David: the number I had been using was BR No. 64349 but I am planning to chang…

San Francisco railway show

San Francisco railway show

Murdoch, James, Rebecca and Charlie goes to the great railway show in San Francisco and meets all new friends. They will also meet 6 people with unique abilities 

The great railway show is a international event where engines compete in 4 different events. The events are strength, looks, speed, and agility. Last year, both Thomas and Ashima won the shunting race. This year, the show was being held in San Francisco. A few weeks before the show. Sir Topham Hatt called Murdoch, James, Rebecca, and Charlie down to knapford. They were all puzzled as to why they were there. Soon Sir Topham Hatt arrived.

Sometimes the engines of the North Western Railway venture off Sodor to take trains to destinations on the mainland.  There's Brighton, York, and an place the engines love to travel to, this place is called Spring City. Engines, road vehicles and people all mix and mingle here. One day Neville was taking a goods train to spring city He was making good time.

Oliver and Bradford

Oliver and Bradford 

Bradford works with Oliver, an engine who the trucks all fear. 

Oliver the great western engine is a hard working engine. Whenever he pulls goods trains, he is almost never seen without his trusty brakevan Toad. The trucks never play tricks on him, because they know what would happen if they did, he would pull them in half like he did with S.C. Ruffey.

(Flashback of Toad stands by plays)

To be honest, S.C. Ruffey had rotten wood and rusty frames. The trucks don't know that, it was bad for discipline.

One evening Oliver had just brought his last goods train of the day to Knapford.

Oliver: "Ahh, last train of the day"

It's still Summer and here's more updates for Adventures on Rails

  • First off, progress on Work and Play has been moving smoothly. I'm still unsure when it would be released but the latest it would be is June 2019. I have decided to utilise a Railway Series format meaning that the short will be comprised of four stories. I have released an updated character list though that is subject to change as I write the short. Also, there'll be more to come on Jessie the 'Austerity' Tank Engine and I promise her story is one that will surprise a lot of you. Some of you might have read it before if not, I'll be a nice treat.

Hey everyone! I’m back again with another few updates. So here’s some good news: I’ve found some time to write my stories and I’m about half way through my next episode! Publication is still TBA for now, but should be posted by next week at the lastest.

Feels good to get back in the habit again, guys and I hope y’all are still keeping up to date! So with that being said, stay tuned and look out for the next episode!

Important Announcement

Hello everyone! It's me, the creator of The Adventures on Sodor. I have some important announcements to make, but they might not be good ones, sadly.

First off, I have officially decided to cancel my ongoing series "The Adventures on Sodor", which means they'll be no more stories written for it or anything. Yes, sad isn't it? :(

Because of the cancellation of my series, the stories Back to Misty Island and Sidney Gets Lost will remain unfinished and the upcoming third season of my series, along with The Great Journey of Sodor, will both be cancelled.

The reason why I have decided to cancel my series is because I've been struggling with life and school. Not just that, but it's also because of the future. I can't take any more of all the change…

While I have explained all the things about how it will connect with next year's short I do want to keep in focus what will be the overall theme of the short if you've wondering, yes it does have inspiration from the song of the same name.
  • As for the 2019 short, I obviously have the idea and the concept but work on that will not begin until this upcoming short is released.
  • If we really wanted to look ahead to the future, meaning into 2020. I'm not opposed to doing more shorts, it just depends on my schedule and ideas.

Hey everyone! Long time, no see. So in case anyone was wondering where I’ve been the past few weeks, I’ve been busy in my life again and haven’t had much time to write my stories, so that’s why I’ve been inactive.

Hello, everyone, I’m back to give a much-needed announcement.

For the time being, I’m taking a hiatus from writing, my emotions and mental state are completely out of check at the moment, and I want to take a break for a week or two.

  • Progress on Very Famous Engines has been great. Depending on how things go, it might be released during the last week of March, if not early April. On the short itself, definitely reflective on the history of steam engines, preservation and the Flying Scotsman himself. It recounts some of Flying Scotsman's most famous moments and some of his difficulties too.

Currently, the second season of TAOS has just started premiering on March 3rd, 2018. However, I was planning on scheduling the release in September 2017, right after I finished with the first season. Then I pushed its release date to November, but then pushed it again to March 2018, as I have been very busy with school, which also explains my long absence from the wiki between November and March.

Hello everyone! Since some people have been giving updates about their series, I’ve decided to give fans of my series a little update too.

First of all, I’ve been really inactive with my stories lately because I’ve been busy and lost some interest in writing (hence the reason why I’ve been updating several character galleries instead), but now I have some more time and I’m planning on finishing my first season this year. I’m going to try and aim for the traditional 26 episode format before July (because that’s the month I started my series back in 2016 (yes, I take a very long time to write my stories)), but if I find myself unable to reach that goal, the season will be 20 episodes instead.

For now, it is postponed, possibly until after Christmas. I hope everyone understands but I would rather postpone it rather than release a rushed product.

I literally have no idea what I should do for a special after the second season of Sudrian Stories. While Saving Diesel is the conclusion of Season 1, I think I can complete Season 2 by episode 21. Thus, I wanted to get your guys' opinion, so kind of like the Community Character I had you vote on, I have some poll for you to fill out, so that I can get a general idea of what it should be.

JBS Rewritten

This was something I wrote last night, it's the plot overview of a version of Journey Beyond Sodor if I wrote it. While the beginning is somewhat similar, the second half is where things change. I've removed some of the songs, and the entire character of Beresford. I think he's quite interesting and has potential, but he really didn't do anything in the special, and was just filler. This isn't something I've written in the same format as my other stories, and it isn't a fully original story, so I'm putting it here.

I think the special had potential, and I liked, it's definitely one of the better Thomas specials, number 4 on my personal list. But, the ending was the real think that bugged me, it really ruined a lot of potential for Frankie, …

Hi, as you see, I'm currently working on a series called Thomas' Engine Adventures, I'm planning on making four seasons, but it looks like only two will be made for now. I have nearly finished making episode pages for the first season of my series, I've still got the last six episodes of the season left.

As you may have also seen, I have rewritten my stories a bit, because of mainly punctuation being put into the wrong place, spelling mistakes, grammar, etc. The reason being is because I mainly rush when I do my stories. I've not just done that, but I've also rewritten the story up a bit, giving them a more better plot then the original plot I gave the episodes.

Saving Edward Sneak Peak - James and the Search Party

Albeit short, here's a quick scene from Saving Diesel. It'll take place later on in the story, and there will be some things that won't make sense, but you'll get it once the special comes out.

So, here it is.

The next morning, the news of Edward's near incident at King's Cross had spread to Sodor, mostly thanks to a gossiping Samson. This lead to Sir Topham Hatt having Henry and BoCo go to the Mainland with Samson and Bradford. "Is everyone ready?" Bradford asked.

"Sure are!" The two engines replied. But, right before they left, a whistle sounded.

"Not him." Henry groaned.

James rushed into Vicarstown, obviously exhausted. "Take me with you guys!" The red engine pleaded.

BoCo scoffed. "Why should we? Edward got mad at you, and you're the reason …

Well, the school year's coming to an end! Hurray I suppose. Anyways, still several things to look forward to.

  • James and the Fat Controller will be released on the 19th of June. One more trailer will come soon (possibly this weekend) and stay tuned for the release of that.
  • In November, Saving the Mountain Engines will be released. A trailer will be released along with the release of the short mentioned in the bullet above. More information will follow in the upcoming months leading to its release.
  • Moving onto 2018! Well, I'm hoping for at least one short and if I can, I will do two. I cannot state any confirmed information, but I do have some ideas in mind for 2018.
  • Finally, Journey Beyond Sodor's trailer has been released. I'll be brief; there…

Updates as of May 2017

It's May now and here we go with some more updates!

  • James and the Fat Controller's release date is coming up really soon. I wasn't able to post a trailer out in April but at least one will come before June and I'll announce the official release date as well.
  • Later, in Autumn, Saving the Mountain Engines will be released. I'll be giving a lot more details after the release of the short stated up above.
  • Now, looking onto 2018; I'm hoping at least. It seems things could work out that way. If there is only one it would likely be released in June but I can't guarantee more than two. Time will tell what happens and I'll do everything possible to give my best work that year.

Pretty short this month, but that's about it! Take care! MainLineEngines (ta…

Henry's "Special" Coal

Well, it's April 1st and that means it April Fools. Well, this year, I'm trying something a bit new for me and this episode is a satire of sorts regarding (as the title might suggest) what was the issue of Henry needing 'special' coal beginning from HiT's takeover in 2004 until 2013 in King of the Railway where the issue was finally put to rest. So why bring out something from the past? I say why not make fun of it? So, I'll leave you to it. Enjoy!

Henry the Green Engine has worked on the Fat Controller's Railway for a very long time. But when he first arrived, he caused a great deal of trouble for the Fat Controller.

He stuck in a tunnel once to avoid getting his paint wet in the rain and then suffered many steaming problems afterwards.

Updates as of April 2017

Happy April everyone! And here is this month's updates.

  • First off, James and the Fat Controller will be released in June (with exact day to be revealed soon). One trailer will be released in April and another in May, so I hope you're looking forward to that.
  • Later, in Autumn, Saving the Mountain Engines will be released. This is based off Snowdon Mountain Railway's No. 7 and No. 8's current state which is very uncertain at the moment. So we'll see how it goes from Alaric and Eric, the Culdee Fell Railway's own No. 7 and No. 8 respectively.
  • As I have mentioned regularly, there's some changes coming about within the the year or two in my outside life, so we'll see how it affects my wiki activity, but I do hope to continue comissioning shorts as…

A Very Caledonian Christmas

Merry Christmas! Here's a short episodes feautring the Caledonian Twins, Donald and Douglas. It's a follow-up of Thomas and the Avalanche. Hope you enjoy.

Dear Friends

I've had a lot of inquiries regarding our Caledonian Twins, Donald and Douglas. In my latest story, they were involved in an accident with our No. 1, Thomas. They were sent to the Steamworks and had to spend Christmas there . . . They had a very interesting time there. But you must read for yourself.

Merry Christmas, The Author

It was a snowy morning on the Island of Sodor.

Donald and Douglas woke up early.

"Are ye readdie, Douggie?" asked Donald.

"Aye. I'm always ready," replied Douglas.

The Twins had their snowploughs attached to their fronts. Then, they went off to the Yard to fi…
