I assume they aren't organic either. Besides, if they had blood, where would the hearts be?

But what if their faces were to be cut/slashed/etc.

Then why would James' nose turn red when he got stung in Buzz, Buzz.

If they had hearts they would probably be somewhere near their firebox but in their boiler connected to tubes and their "brain" would be in their smokebox.

I don't know why James's nose went red, but I doubt it was blood... remember, these are sentient locomotives, but they still function like normal ones. A smokebox is a smokebox is a smokebox. Not a brain. If anything, it's affixed beneath the locos.

Would anyone like to entertain and impress me with their thoughts about Bert the small blue engine? In the book Jock the New Engine, inside the story "Sicking Power" to be exact, still has Bert in his original shape. However, by 1973 he should've been given a new shape and the story takes place in 1976. What is even more puzzling is the fact that the same story states that Bert is younger than Rex and Mike, but TIOS says that he is significantly older than the two...and to ice the cake, the official website even states that Bert is younger than Rex and Mike. Everything else about the original Arlesdsle trio is true on the website. (i.e. Mike having temper issues, Bert being bossed around by the two, Rex being the natural leader of the three, etc.).

EDIT: He is also still in his older shape in the TV Series.

In reality, I believe either River Irt or Esk are oldest. My guess is the TVS went by the RWS, not TIOS.

Question (with spoilers):
When Sailor John was whacking Thomas' face with the shovel (or whatever it was) during the chase scene, would Thomas have bruises? Furthermore, would their faces be like skin and muscle or hard metal (like a smokebox door) but giving off the appearance of a "human" face?

My theory:

Faces are machinery, manufactured in various factories worldwide. They are attached to the smokebox with an adhesive, and remain attached for most of the time. So no, Thomas can't get bruised. This also explains Whiff's glasses- his eyes are discontinued, and they are malfunctioning as well.

In my opinion, the artist didn't know about the new shape, and thus drew Bert wrong. The ERS on SiF actually has a couple of books on this.

Your theory falls apart when you remember that the animators visited the Ravenglass and Eskdale. I suspect they just followed his book appearance.

Okay. Well, how can they smell? Like in The Smelly Kipper and many other episodes, they all manage to smell the fish. So how can they recognise scent and smell?

They are sentient-beings either once they move for the first time, or when they first build up steam (they are born instantly with speaking and moving knowledge)

Eh... it's pretty weird when you try to think of it with logical realism. Do you know what I think? I think we should just put it down to either "magic" or that maybe Sodor exists in an alternate universe where nothings changed from this world but that the public are okay with engines having faces and talking.

But the public wouldn't be okay with it. They would view it as slavery, and a bunch of people would protest for "Engine Rights". And an equal number of people wouldn't give a damaged funnel, just so long as they got to work on time. Human nature is weird...

Besides, the existence of a massive Island, with rich deposits of a super-strong sandstone, Silver and Zinc, Uranium, and Slate (there is a thread on SiF about Sudrian geology. It's quite interesting what conclusions were drawn), off the coast of England, would drastically affect the course of World History. That should be our next topic; how would the Sodorverse be different from ours?

Slate is so common that whiteboards and interactive whiteboards are quite a bit less popular

I doubt it- the slate isn't really the right kind, and blackboards would have been obsoleted anyway. If anything, it would cause a very slight increase in slate roofing.

Also, Barrow-in-Furness would have to be completely reorganized to accommodate the NWR main line. What else?

How does a mountain engines sight look like? Are the faces synchronized? Does it talk like an echo? Why aren't their faces cosmetically similar?

Point 4: Because one is round and one is rectangular...
Point 2: I suspect they can only use one face at a time, along with RWS BoCo, RWS Daisy, and RWS Toby.
Point 1: See Point 2
Point 3: See Point 1
