But I want him back, which means that it's not a 'we' thing.

But I have to ask the question: What's unique about him? At least Diesel 10 looks cool; he has a claw! The Diesel's just another throwaway character.

Luc Ha-Meatzben wrote:Yeah... no. They gave Diesel at least 2 attempts at redemption, and failed both. 

Unfortunately, some weirdo in season 9 decided Diesel was permanently on Sodor, so thats that.

I think that's because Diesel was popular so they decided to keep him. I don't blame them, although it would be nice to see why. Maybe the Fat Controller sees some good in him...? I don't know.

Maybe if Diesel wasn't sent back to the other railway in Diesel Does It Again and turned to the steam engine's side would of been a better way of keeping Diesel on the North Western Railway in the TV Series. As for Bowler I could see him being better as one of Diesel 10's sidekicks.

As I recall, he was often sent away, but to use him
More in the model era Allcroft and Mitton would often use as a plot element that Diesel was "the only engine available" to help out with the task at hand

Maybe he was shooed away from all the OTHER railways?

That's a good point; it's possible Diesel caused so much trouble elsewhere that he was sent to Sodor, thinking the Fat Controller could reform him. And so far, it seems to be slowly working.

I remember a line in one of wildnorwester's stories where a mainline diesel confronts diesel and tells him outright "os it any wonder our controller will take advantage of any opportunity to send you away?!"

So maybe it could be the mainland controller's doing

Or that too. It's either the Fat Controller or the Mainland. (Though I wouldn't use Wildnorwester as a source for canon.)

Yeah. No matter how good a story is, from the ERS to some 2 year olds "episode", it's still fanfiction.

I wasn't suggesting he was canon, I was just suggesting an idea for why Diesel is on Sodor

True; I can't think of another explanation.

What's very interesting actually is how we see these anti-diesel sentiments in Reverend Awdry's books, but when Christopher takes over we see a friendlier look towards the diesels

Maybe Christopher was more friendly toward the diesels because of racism.

I think it was more along the lines of evolving; the dislike to Diesels had to end in the RWS at some point. It's just development.

Also, there were only a few bad diesels, and there were Old-stuck-ups within the steam engines as well.

Actually, when you think about it:

Good Diesels:

BoCo
Bear
Rusty
Daisy (?)

Bad Diesels:

Diesel
D199
D261
"Old Stuck up"

Surprisingly, there were just as many good diesels as bad diesels.

That's true; in the show there's also more good Diesels than bad. I think...

Now, this thread hasn't been posted in in awhile, so I'd like to turn it back around to stories we'd like to see adapted. It's been a while since I compiled the list of one's we'd like to see adapted, so I've remade it. There were 126 'votes' total.

Taking the fifth spot is the book Thomas and the Great Railway Show (8 'votes'/6% total), which came in at Number 3 last time. It's an excellent book, and it'd have an actual reason for Thomas to star in it... plus, merchandise...!

The Missing Coach (8/6%) was Number 2 last time around, and I'm a bit surprised that it's slid down to Number 4 this time. It's the most popular Thomas episode to be cancelled, and I believe that most of us would agree that it shouldn't have been.

Moving from Number 6 all the way to Number 3 is Mountain Engines (11/9%). When it comes to the Rev. W. Awdry, this is, in my opinion, his absolute best book. I love the Culdee Fell Engines, and I feel that it would be quite good in the series. Again... merchandise...!

The Number 2 spot goes to Gordon Goes Foreign (14/11%), which was Number 4 last time. It's definitely a good story, and it would be nice to see it adapted.

And, of course, Number 1, which was also Number 1 last time. It's obviously Super Rescue (23%). Almost everyone who 'voted' 'voted' for it. I don't think I need to say anything else besides that it's an excellent story, and one of the best in the Railway Series, so it definitely should be adapted.

Small Railway Engines and Jock the New Engine would of been interesting adaptions for Seasons 3 and 4. If Britt Allcroft stayed towards the RWS after Season 4 and the Duke episodes were pushed back for Season 5 the small engines could of been involved with finding Duke in Sleeping Beauty and Very Old Engines would of also been adapted in Season 5 before the Duke episodes.

I would love to see Triple Header be made into an episode, with the current writing staff and Duck's return, I think they could pull it off quite well...

Yeah it would be interesting in CGI but I think Triple Header would of worked better in Season 4 in my opinion.

I would want Super Rescue like most of you, and some of the Stories involving Mike, Rex and Bert. I haven't read any of Christohper Awdry's stories because I don't own any of the books, so I don't know which stories would be nice.

I'd like to see Super Rescue, but as has been stated, Henry's Hero sort of fills that role, but it'd still be cool if we get 199 and Bear out of the deal!

I'd also like to have seen a lot more of the Christopher Awdry stories, namely the Thomas and the Twins stories. I'd also love to see Very Old Engines, Mountain Engines, Jock the New Engine, and Thomas and the Great Railway Show.

Do you think if we are vocal enough, Super Rescue will get adapted?
