On the Island of Sodor, at the end of the Little Western branch line, lies the Arlesdale Railway where the miniature engines reside. They take passengers through the mountain countryside and take ballast from the mines to Arlesburgh where it’s transferred to the North Western Railway. The railway is successful enough and is a major tourist attraction.
If you were to go back in time, back more than 75 years, before the Arlesdale railway was built, before the time of the diesels, before the two great wars, even before the formation of the North Western Railway, you’d find the start of a railway that time has forgotten, but for the people and engines who worked there, it’s a treasure with no value. This is the Mid-Sodor railway.

The year of 1880 was a big milestone for the small town of Arlesburgh, for it was the day that the new narrow gauge railway was finally to be opened. The railway itself had been constructed to run from the town to Pee

Judy & Jerome are the Sodor Breakdown Cranes. They have been responded to many rescues & help build new railway lines ever since they arrived on Sodor when it's railway was still under construction. As more accidents & building occured through the years, the harder it got, even when Harvey arrived on Sodor, & later use them for extra lifting. Judy & Jerome don't mind Harvey. They like him for how unique he is, But once in a while more help had to be called, & one eventually made a mark. Sir Charles Topham Hatt had order a new crane that could lift things that are bigger & heavier, & soon enough, the crane arrived & was taken to the Knapford yard where Judy & Jerome were resting. Sir Topham Hatt was there to introduce the workmen & the cranes to the big red one.
STH: This is Rocky. He is the new breakdown crane that i order a couple weeks ago. He'll be here for extra strength for bigger & heavier things, as he's has the combine strength of Judy & Jerome.
Judy was impressed by Rock
New Engines On Sodor Chapter 2Thomas was very happy that he still had 3 sibling E2s that had not been scrapped. And they were now working with him on Sodor on his branch line. But things were still getting to be a bit busy on the island. So Sir Topham Hatt decided to get another engine to come to Sodor. One day, Sir Topham Hatt went to the docks to see his new engine. But when Sir Topham Hatt arrived, he was surprised to see that there was not one engine, but two. The two engines came from Japan. They were Japanese C62 engines.New Engines On Sodor Chapter 2 by Eli-J-Brony
Sir Topham Hatt: Huh? But, I only asked for one engine. Not two.
Cranky: Do you think I'd know why there are two engines here instead of just one?
Joy: Hello, my name is Joy.
Nazz: And I'm Nazz.
Sir Topham Hatt: Gee. I didn't expect for two engines to come. I've ordered only one new engine. Not two.
Joy: But we're very helpful.
Nazz: We can pull heavy trains.
Joy: We can do much better pulling together.
Sir Topham Hatt: Well, I think you will need to show yourselves how useful you can be.

Work! Work! Work! Work!
Oh, you are such lucky trains,
To get to work this way.
So many others waste effort
Not treating it like play!
Work! Work! Work! Work!
Busy trains are happy trains,
As folks can plainly see!
A little sweat can never hurt,
Just look what it did for me! (laughs)
It's your good fortune,
This have a boss like me.
Why, with plenty of fuel,
A shed to sleep,
For such humble tasks as these, ha!
Buying you soon pays off!
Work! Work! Work! Work!
Working builds good character,
And makes you strong, you see.
So forget, to keep in steam,
You owe all to me!
Work! Work! Work!

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.
