What do you think?
What's on your mind?
In the two episodes "Escape" from Series 3 and "Rusty to the Rescue" from Series 4, the diesels are facing opposite to the camera. But my question is... Why are they facing opposite to the camera?
I decided to bring this topic up as nobody has really talked about the upcoming film being directed by Marc Forster. I have a feeling they'll take either a realistic or a TV series with realistic modifications for the style, though I'd like to see realistic. What do you think Thomas will look like? I have a feeling they'll go with this Jinty repainted as Thomas, this engine is LMS Fowler Class 3F No. 47327.
This is a video on the official Thomas & Friends Youtube channel.
I have so many questions about this like did this really happen. So what do you think of this video?
Meet my OC, Sanford. He is a Black Tank Engine that was saved from scrap by Rusty, and he runs the Norramby Branch Line aka the Bluebell Branch Line. So, let's talk about his Bio and Personality.
Sanford was built in 1872 and work alongside his brothers and sisters until 1925 when he was sent to Sodor on a unamed railway.
Sanford was 2nd Engine to run the Line, the 1st was named Hiro, but he kept his number 51. Hiro would do Goods Work and Sanford would be a shunter. Later on in 1952, a 3rd Engine would arrive, her name was Olivia, a BR Standerd Class 4 she would do passenger work.
But, sadly the railway would close in 1959 due to the railway Hiro having a terrible accident and he was beyond repair, and with people coming to the more popular railways, they had to close.
Hiro was left on a siding, Sanford was sent to the Vicarstown Scrapyard and left on a siding, and Olivia was sent to the Sodor Ironworks.
One Day, Sanford saw a Diesel go by, then 5 hours later the same Diesel came back with a scrap train, he stoped at a red signal, when Sanford looked at the train he saw a scrap engine on a flatbed, who's shape was all to familiar. It was Olivia, she had no face and rusted all over, the sight of her made Sanford broke into tears.
2 weeks later, he was moved to another siding right next to some narrow gauge tracks, his driver would always keep him company just to make him feel better.
One Day, a little orange diesel arrived, and asked if he liked Bluebells. Sanford stammerd and said he did like bluebells. The Diesel said his name was Rusty, and he said he was going to get him out of here. And they escaped, and arrived on a railway that was connected with the North Western, ever since then, he has been proudly worked on the Railway.
Later sometime during the Mid 1970s the Railway was turned into a branch line. a couple months after the Norramby Branch Line was part of the NWR, Sanford was told to visit the Quarry, but he had got lost and arrived at the Sodor Ironworks. 'Arry and Bery tried to scrap him. But they were caught by the Fat Controller. And received a scolding after Sanford returned.
Sanford is a nice kind Tank Engine. He basically has the same personality as Stepney, except he doesn't like trucks, unless if there nice or faceless. And he is very shy around big engines, diesels and new comers.
So, there you go here is Sanford. I hope you like him. Tell me what you think.

So I remember in around December last year, a user by the name of @Touch my red paint,and you touch heaven claimed they had seen a prototype face for Lady that depicted her yawning. I decided recently to not only share the story with those who don't know, but also try and a bit of closure as to whether it is official or not.
How they were able to get on set isn't really clear, just that they were a visitor, it definitely raises doubts over whether their story is true.
Their description of the face
Probably having seen Touch My Red Paint's post the previous day, they brought up Lady's prototypes faces, as a way of arguing against someone who likes the film (though I doubt they like it because it brought us the Lady's faces) to which someone else replied saying at least we won't ever have to see her yawning face. Touch My Red Paint then replied giving adding on to their previous description.
Then, on 21st of December a user by the name of @Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee posted this:
This should, provide closure but it doesn't. For one, why would Touch My Red Paint need an alt, nothing appears on their block log. Not to mention, this user was active on the same days as Touch my red Paint, raising even more suspicions. It's possible that they were only pretending to be an alt of Touch My Red Paint's. Both accounts have since been disabled, so I guess we'll never know.
What we do know though, is that their story doesn't make all that sense. First of all, how would they be able to get on set in TATMR, let alone take pictures. And then, why would they just casually have Lady's prototype faces on display when they were never going to use them?
So now it becomes increasingly obvious that this face is fake, and the story is made up.
There are still a few unanswered questions, like what happened to both accounts, they both randomly disappeared, Touch my Red Paint on 21st December and Eeeeee, on the day after. It begs the question of if they were just created for the sake of putting a fake fact on the wiki and convincing everyone it was true. Having created a few unrelated posts before then to blend in a bit better. And then there's the face itself, if it isn't an official face then who made it? We might never know.
But before we end this post here is the face, for you all to enjoy:
Crush: rosie (his girlfriend) lady (his secret crush)
Born in: 1915 in the LBS&CR railway
Cousins: Stepney the blue bell engine
Brothers: Roger (from megahegehogx ) Timothy died from cliff
