Crovan's Gate, Island of Sodor, 1969
Duke hadn’t quite known what to expect when he’d first been told about the Skarloey Railway. He’d heard of it, of course, but that didn’t mean he hadn’t been nervous imagining the long journey that would bring him there.
Even after the long period of isolation and the building’s slow decay, it had been hard leaving the familiar surroundings of his old shed for the last time. He’d slept there all his life. It was home.
After a friendly crane had carefully lifted him out of the crumbling building, he’d had the uncomfortable and rather humiliating experience of making the first leg of his trip by lorry. It had been a relief to be lifted onto a good old flatbed to complete the rest of it on the back of a North Western goods train.
But in the end, it had all been worth it. Worth it when his wheels touched better-kept rails than he’d known in many a long year. Worth it
Red: The Lost Wanderer Part 1It was the height of the tourist season on Sodor and all of the engines were being worked off their wheels, they weren’t happy about the extra work but they knew it was good for the railway. Whilst the weather had been kind to them they weren’t too happy about the hot midday sun beating down on them all day. It was always the warm mornings and evenings that the engines preferred, the warmth of the early and late sun accompanied by a cool gentle breeze to wisp around their boilers. One evening in particular was at the end of July, the evening that day was absolutely wonderful. The evening sun reflecting upon the oceans currents joined by the sea breeze that came in over the green coastlines on the Little Western made life worthwhile. But, if you were to listen to Gordon at Vicarstown, you would’ve thought the evening was just as dull as any other.Red: The Lost Wanderer Part 1 by GBHtrain
GORDON: Failed! FAILED!!! Of all the things that could’ve happened to me it had to be a BLOODY FAILED INJECTOR! Argh,

“I know who you are”, the red engine said.
“Who – who am I? Please – I know it sounds silly, but… I think I’ve forgotten.”
“Well – you’re name’s Smudger...”
“Smudger. I’ve just got to remember that. Stupid name. But it’s the only one I ever had. And I don’t care what they say… or what I must look like by now. I. Am. An. Engine."
His voice was close to breaking. He didn’t want the stranger to see it, but he couldn’t hide it any more.
“I… I’m sorry.”
He avoided the red engine’s eyes. He hated the idea of being something for people to pity.
“I’m an engine”, he muttered again. “Not a generator. Not a stupid flippin’ heap of scrap.”
Words. Just words. That was all they were, all they ever would be.
Gibson and Murdoch's Busy Night'Thomas' Foreign Friends: Gibson and Murdoch's Busy Night'Gibson and Murdoch's Busy Night by Jonathan-Asiamah
Written by Jonathan Asiamah-Acheampong
One night, Gibson is shunting some coaches in the yards. Then, Murdoch pulled in with the Fat Controller.
FAT CONTROLLER: Ah, Gibson. Just the engine I wanted to see.
FAT CONTROLLER: You and Murdoch are to deliver some goods trains around the Island. Just remember to get them to each destination without any delays.
GIBSON: Yes, sir.
MURDOCH: We can do it! No problem!
FAT CONTROLLER: Very well! I'd better head home, now. Goodnight.
MURDOCH: Come on, Gibson. Let's get to work.
GIBSON: Right behind you, mate!
(MURDOCH AND GIBSON WHISTLE)
The two engines arrived at Brendam Docks. There are lots of trucks waiting for them.
DOCK MANAGER: The crates and pipes are for Vicarstown. The workmen are waiting for them.
GIBSON AND MURDOCH: Yes, sir!
The shunter coupled them up to the trucks and they set off through the night. But the journey didn't stay quiet for long.
GIBSON: You know, back

Dinosaur Month: Tale of The BraveHey everyone and welcome to the fifth installment to dinosaur, today I will be taking a look at a childhood friend of mineDinosaur Month: Tale of The Brave by KPsaurusrex
Okey, yea, I know what your thinking. What does Thomas the Tank Engine have to do with dinosaurs? Well that's what I'm here to talk about. While this movie might not be all about dinosaurs, dinosaurs still have a big part of this movie (sorta). So let's take a look at Thomas & Friends: Tale of The Brave.
So we start off with Thomas who is sent to work with Bill and Ben at the China clay-pits due to his branch-line being closed down for repairs. As a storm approaches, he takes a train of trucks filled with clay when another tank engine named Timothy (*GASP* RUN THOMAS, ITS THE EVIL GHOST OF YOUR DEAD BROTHER, no not really ) warns him that the line he's about to take gets really dangerous when it rains. As you guess, it begins to rain hard and some rocks from a cliff are knocked loose and land right next to Thomas.
