Over: Diesel 10. When I see a fan-special on YouTube, almost always has some link to Diesel 10 in it, Hell, Thousand Eye Train Dragon (my boss told me to call 1,000 Eyes that) made an entire entourage of diesels 0-20, as well as 666 and 5000XL. I think we just need to lay off the whole Diesel 10 thing for a while, and look for a less insane but still antagonistic Character like Spencer, or one of my strange ideas, Hank, when it comes to fanfics, but that's just my opinion.
Hold up, it's 0-20, 5,000 XL, and XXX. And Frank helped create them.

Under: Close Tie between Derek and Bertram, but Derek takes the lead. Derek in my opinion is one of the best "one off" characters, (even though he probably wouldn't be a one off if Britt wasn't fired) and now in the CGI series is a better time then ever to reintroduce Derek, with the clay pits having been reintroduced a long enough time ago to start introducing new clay pit characters aside from Bill, Ben, Timothy, and Marion. Derek was featured in one episode, and cameoed in CAE but Thanatos is simply not enough for this character.
Gotta agree with you, Derek has a lot left to be explored that I'd love to see. Bertram as well offers a blank slate for writers - we know he's brave, but what else? There's a lot of potential for both of them in the series.

I'd be pretty scared as for the voice acting for Bertram. Admittedly he never spoke, but I'm sure we all have a voice in our head for him.

Anyways, I'm totally on the Derek train. (bland train pun unintended)
I sort of feel sorry for Derek, I mean he's only proven to be a burden so far, no matter how hard he tries.

I don't care whether you mean underrated or overrated. Either way I think you're wrong Laughing

Anyways, does anybody want to see more of Old Slow Coach? And maybe even a proper name for her?

Eh, I wouldn't mind that, but frankly, I'm not dying to see her back again.

Admittedly, my Bertram Voice is a heavy British accent even in the US Dub.

Not too sure about Old Slow Coach, but some characters I do want to see return are...

The Horrid Lorries. Bulgy returned, George Returned, but Smashed, Broken, and Sunk never returned. I'd prefer if they didn't have a recovery episode like Bulgy, and maybe even got sent away again in the end, but that trio is just a good idea. Either that or the same paragraph but instead of the Lorries it's Bowler

Not sure I'd be pumped about the lorries, I mean they'd probably just act like a stumpier version of Max and Monty.
How does MightyMac sound? I wouldn't mind seeing them return.

Mighty Mac was a cool idea that was never fully developed, and their debut, IMO, was one of the best of the New Era eps. I don't mind waiting a while for their return, but I'd love to see them again someday (instead of Freddie? Please?).

To be honest, I feel Mighty Mac's potential has been used up.

I am not fond of the Dark Era, but I will concede that his debut episode did have some good moments. But after that, look what happened. Every single appearance afterwards was a cameo. It tells me that his potential was used up rather quickly.

I would not be against his return, as the Double Fairlie is a great base locomotive; but the real question is how can he return in a way that makes sense.

Fun little thought, what if they gave the Marklin engine were given a character? You know, perhaps mention that he is literally mute in season 1?

They'd be very interesting, however unlikely it may be.

I would agree- except that we found out in Blue Mountain Mystery that it was scrapped thanks to an Easter egg at the scrapyard.

...

In all seriousness though, that is interesting; perhaps if executed properly, it would work.
