K - English - Chapters: Gordon is worried as well and even admits a secret. As Rosie watches her little brothers, she decides on a way to comfort them in helping them believe in the return of Edward. Edward himself feels terrible and Thomas feels shattered. However, with the unbreaking determination from their friends and crews, the bond slowly starts to be repaired. But that feeling goes away when a young boy with blue hair and ice blue eyes comes to the Island of Sodor, and replaces that feeling with something else.
Now, I know baby engines would be realistically and physically impossible, but I have seen some fanarts of it, and ideas have been swimming in my head so, oneshots are being made! Now, just know that none of these will be in a specific order. These oneshots are completely random, unless I say otherwise: Wanting to at least make a small change to that, he decides to build his own engine, and give him his first adventures.
This isn't a story. It is however, TTTE related. And this is ours. These are OUR ideas. Ones that we don't intend on changing, unless we decide otherwise. It's how our humanised stories and rps are pictured: But problems aren't always easily avoidable. And when Thomas tries to hide his mistake, things just get worse. She won't talk to anyone, look at anyone, she won't even acknowledge their greetings. Thomas hates seeing his big sister upset, so he decides to find out what's wrong.

But one thing has been bugging the people on Sodor. Why did Thomas come to their island? And under what circumstances? The question is, will it be too late to say so?
And because of Edward's downhill spiral, Thomas loses himself. She asked for an adaption to 'Philip to the Rescue' where it was more centered on Thomas and James.
Thomas knows this, and is still sad, regardless of how many times he is reassured. But Edward will remind Thomas of one thing: No matter where he is going, Edward won't be gone forever. And James finally admits a big secret that he's been holding in for far too long. D Thomas the Tank Engine - Rated: Everyone thought it was going to be a normal visit. Here's the speech I gave. I want to introduce Casablanca today by starting at the end of the movie.
The very end, when Claude Rains and Humphrey Bogart are walking toward the runway, almost arm in arm, splashing water with every footstep. Bogart, as Rick, says, "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. And we can easily imagine Rick and Louie as partners in the Underground, sabotaging the Nazis in various adventures together that may or may not make them a few francs.
It would have made a fun sequel. But for us, the beautiful friendship is with the movie. When I was asked to speak today, of course I accepted. And then I panicked.
And we like hearing those lines again and again. So, I asked my listeners for help. I asked them to write a few words about their beautiful friendship with the movie. And they came through. Patricia Thomas wrote about the first time she saw it. The entire scene with the Bulgarian bride, from " This, by the way, was a plotline that was written to get past the censors. I learned the lyrics of La Marseillaise long before I could speak French, all because of the incredible melodic standoff between Victor Laszlo and the Nazi bastards.
I get goosebumps just thinking about that scene. This scene has an extra layer because it also shows Yvonne, who was hanging with the Nazis, coming to her senses and realizing she is French, after all. The woman who played her, Madeleine LeBeauis the last surviving cast member.
Secondly, Gordon's reaction when they reached his broken safety valve was brilliant. The humour here visual and verbal is another example of the team using another aspect of classic Awdry storytelling, which is lovely.
It keeps everyone invested. Thomas Turns Blue We're then taken to the Steamworks where there's another montage of Thomas being repainted. I really like that the new location is used as it encapsulates what the team want to do perfectly: And I also liked the pink undercoat nod to Tickled Pink. While some may think that Thomas' reaction to it was enforcing stereotypes I'll admit it irked me on re-watchit's not something that they dwell upon, so it's just another distraction.
Thomas then shows Edward his new paint like a proud son shows off to his father. And I think here's the best place to say that the best part of the special is the relationship between these two.
It's sweet, it's natural, it's genuine. And it's the heart here that makes it extremely hard to criticise the special's flaws too much, especially if they're easy to look past in the first place.
Pooh's Adventures of Thomas & Friends: Misty Island Rescue
The Original Number One The most interesting part for me is the mention of the coffee pot. Sure, it doesn't lead to anything huge, but it was still pretty surprising that they'd go that deep with the back story of the NWR. These engines have only ever been mentioned once in The Island of Sodor: Surprise Packet, both of which are extremely rare these days.
Alone in the Yard At this point, we're introduced to Annie and Clarabel, and I think it's great how they were handled here. They felt like great supporting characters, filling in the gaps that Edward left. And seeing their relationship grow - and how respectful Thomas is towards them, it made sense that they'd go to him in the end.
Originally, they just seemed to come from nowhere and were given to Thomas for The montage following it was simply fantastic.
You get a real feeling of Thomas trying to get things done the way Edward would. Also, the animation here is simply amazing. It's probably one of the best rendered shots of the special.
I also really loved the foreshadowing with James' wooden brakes. Not only is it really funny to see James' reactions whenever someone questions him about them, and not only is it awesome that they added brakes blocks to the model for added realism it's a bit of a shame that the other engines didn't get any, but I digressbut it also feels real. Rather than it feeling sudden, they build up to it really well by showing how much wooden brakes erode over time.
It feels realistic, which gets a huge thumbs up from me. Henry's dynamic with Thomas was really good too, and it showed how much Thomas was growing with Edward's help. It makes him a much more relatable and well rounded character, something that this team are brilliant at creating or, in this case, emphasising in already established ones. Thomas and Gordon If you've seen the episode, or read the story, then this part practically follows the book.
Although the train passing Edward, and the station speaker, were really nice touches. Gordon's additional boasting throughout was brilliant as well. The Breakdown Train The next scene shows Thomas meeting the breakdown train or, as they're known here, Jerome and Judy. I'll get to their personae in a bit, but I actually quite like them being introduced here. I'm also glad that they made the breakdown train rather than take the easy way out using Rocky.
Thomas' Train The weird thing about this part is that the train consists of red coaches rather than bogie coaches, although that could be because both versions before this special used them. They have shown main line trains apart from the express using bogie coaches in recent years.
But the red ones still have the desired effect. Another part I really liked is how Thomas left without the train. In fact, this telling made me realise that the original left so many questions as to what could have happened yet didn't seem to want to answer any of them. Here though, it's made clear that he mistakes one guard's whistle for his own, which makes a lot of sense and makes it clear cut for everyone. Thomas and the Trucks After some teasing, it then transitions smoothly to Thomas' initial troubles with the trucks, which was really well done in all aspects.
It shows Thomas being warned by Edward about them, rather than the narrator saying he did, and the song was a much better fit for the scene than the first one.
One thing I thought they might have cleared up though is why the Fat Controller was at Maron when Thomas raced in.
It felt rather contrived then and it still does here.
That said, Edward being punished for what happened was actually an interesting touch. How he knew that Edward was involved with the duty swap we don't know, but all too often throughout the years have culprits for incidents gone forgotten and unpunished, but that wasn't the case here, which was great.
It would have been better had they explained how the Fat Controller knew the full story, but we can't have it all. Yes, he's careless and cheeky, but when his friends needed him, he was there. I know that Henry's fear was originally dealt with by his driver's promise of a rub down at the end of each day, but this feels far less superficial. Thomas genuinely wants to help by making him realise how harmless the rain is, which is a wonderful message to send to kids the best way to help a friend is to lead by example.
Thomas and the Breakdown Train And the second scene where Thomas really shines. The book and original adaptation was realistic from a railway standpoint, but this feels real on a character standpoint. You can't really imagine Thomas just staying in the yard while the trucks have their way with James. James' reactions were also really natural as well. I've heard complaints that he sounds "childish", but if you were running away with no way of stopping, wouldn't you react in the same or, at least, a similar way?
The chase in itself was pretty ridiculous, but with the story being this strong, I just don't care. It leaves you invested; you want Thomas to catch James. And that, for me, is what matters the most. If the characters are strong enough, and the story is good enough, the action scenes will take care of themselves. And then there was the crash, which may have been one of the highlights of the special although it's hard to tell; all of it was brilliant.
What was great about this was that it was never seen in the books or the original adaptation, and it was handled fantastically. It's also a breath of fresh air that they actually showed a huge accident like this in the CGI era.The Adventure Begins UK Part 8
The last time we actually saw a huge smash was James to the Rescue, only that was there to mask the problems with the story that was told. Here, the story was enhanced by the accident as it showed the severity of James' plight rather than it being implied. The rest followed the story pretty much by the book, only it was more character driven rather than relying on narration, which was great.
