Hello, this is Robby's mom. He apologizes for any problems he caused. He is Autistic and when he feels that something is incorrect he wants to correct. He feels that the Red Engine should be called "Eagle" because that's its name. Also, the Caterpillar Crane is named "Rod". The works diesel is called " Wendell". And Engine #8783 should be "Royal Claude". He thinks they should be called by their names. He got the names from Thomassodorworld.tripod.com. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
I apologize for the incredibly late message bump (and my previous annoyance with the edits, I did not know this message was left here last year and just found it now)- but not only has your son started spamming these kinds of names again after nearly 2 years of inactivity, but that site is not a trustworthy source of information- it's all fanfiction and names lifted from the Sodor Island Forum and Fansite's "ERS" (Extended Railway Series).
In short- those are all non-canon names made up by other fans and they are not factual information. So while your son may think our information is incorrect, it is in truth the complete opposite. Those characters do not have any actual names or nicknames.
In addition- he's been doing new nicknames and even last names for characters introduced in King of the Railway. I'd advise that you keep a better eye on him when he uses the computer- we've had a lot of trouble the past 3 years with kids misbehaving severely without their parents keeping a watchful eye on them. And that's about it- those names are non-canon- so please tell him they are not real and his information is actually wrong. He's bound to get this account blocked from editing altogether if it keeps up. We've had enough spam to deal with lately and it's stressful as is to try and keep the site clean (especially on me, an ex-moderator who's dealt with a great deal of the spam).
