Bertie in every season
Please add this to History
Please add the following sentence in the history section: "2005 saw the 60th anniversary of the brand and to celebrate saw the first direct-to-DVD special Calling All Engines! to commemorate the occasion." Parker Productions (talk) 12:02, December 14, 2018 (UTC)
Now i understand the main thing why the production company of Thomas the tank engine is creating cgi series. The models were getting old & it was harder & harder to fix them.
"Laid Back Shane" is the 550th episode--User:Gwrfan72
The behind the scenes link in the trivia section does not work. It should be replaced by either the link to the archive (https://web.archive.org/web/20180814190715/http://www.sodor-island.net/behindthescenes.html) or the link to the new SiF-page. But I don't think the BTS-page is on that new page yet (I didn't find it there).

Updates or clarification needed
The article currently says that Thomas and Friends “has spawned twenty-two series, with the twenty-third currently airing.” This is either out-of-date or confusingly worded. Series 24 is currently airing. One could say that 22 complete series have aired since the first series in 1984, but this is needlessly unclear. It would be clearer simply to say that the twenty-fourth series is currently airing, and that the series has also spawned a theatrical film and however many direct-to-DVD specials. (The article says fourteen, but I count 13 in the list.)
Another sentence that could probably use updating (or possibly deletion) is “This format is presently being used with great success and unanimous fan approval,” in the paragraph about 2013. I don’t think that the current format is the same as it was in 2013. Also, I don’t know much about Thomas fandom, but based on my experience with other fandoms I doubt that anything ever reaches unanimous fan approval! —Josiah Rowe (talk) 14:43, August 11, 2020 (UTC)
- But is came reprinted in 1990
But re: my comment above, the bit about the 23rd series currently airing has been fixed (two months after I mentioned it here), but the bit about the 2013 format being “presently used... with unanimous fan approval” hasn’t. Is there a better way to draw this to the attention of an active admin, who could fix it? —Josiah Rowe (talk) 16:54, 29 December 2020 (UTC)
Original vs Reboot:
I don't think that the two currently confirmed seasons of Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go can be considered Series 25 and 26 because they're part of a separate continuity within the franchise. The Big World: Big Adventures saga was one thing, since all the characters still were based off of their original incarnations, but the All Engines Go canon is something different.
