Only semi-decent Thomas theories

Post by luctheminecrafter on Sun Oct 30, 2016 9:33 pm

What if Percy and Henry's personality changed during CAE! when they slept at the scrapyard?
I mean, when you think about it, they were sleeping with dead bodies all around them, only a few dozen yards from a killing machine, and Arry and Bert roaming around trying to kill them. That's traumatizing! (Meanwhile, Main Character Thomas gets to sleep at Knapford. There was lots of room, that ****)

Well, both of them showed some signs of change before CAE, and besides, why would sleeping with the deceased (that sounds wrong) make Percy deteriorate in maturity?

It's traumatizing.

Plus, the timeline isn't set by seasons, look at "Bullseye"!

That is true, but if Calling All Engines took place before, let's say Henry and the Wishing Tree, why do Tidmouth Sheds only have six berths in Season 8?

As for Percy, how would a traumatizing experience make one stupid, childish, and immature? If anything, that should be a maturing experience. Plus, Percy was seen as immature and childish only earlier in CAE!

Maybe he saw an engine cut melted down and his mind snapped, IDK.

Well, all I can say is that this thread is very aptly named.

Stating the obvious, aren't we, MainLine?

I have a theory that the engines were a part of a science experiment in which human organs were spliced together with mechanical parts, but was not very well designed, causing frightful deaths and giving Sodor a bad name. Wait no, that's Shed 17...

Heck yes. This is my kind of thread.

-Sidney and Paxton are Splatter and Dodge, with changed identities (to hide from someone?)
-TATMR takes place in the distant future. The engines have been modified to run on their own, after which the humans all left or died.
-The engine from Duncan Gets Spooked was a Mid Sodor Engine
-"Fearless" Freddy worked on the MSR. That's how he knows Sir Handel.
-He was also later rebuilt into Fred the lazy Diesel
-Albert the MSR engine that looks like Sir Handel is the inspiration for the legend of Proteus
-Billy and Charlie are the same engine, but not the same character. The faces on an engine can be removed and replaced at will.

I'd like to point out that it is a TV show. You can't just remove a berth because of the timeline. Heck, in CGI it's barely possible. Not everything happened exactly as seen on screen. In fact, maybe many of the engines roles in the HiT era didn't even happen on Sodor, but happened on the mainland; but to make it relevant to the THOMAS show, they changed the characters.

While that's valid, and highly possible, Luc, that's not a fact.

How could Sidney be Splatter or Dodge if his face isn't completely rectangular like their's?

He had infections in the corners of his face so he had surgery to remove them.

Maybe Edward, Duck and the rest of the engines were waiting to be modified to run on their own which is why they were absent in the movie. The engines present in the movie already were modified to run on their own. I think there were still humans as there were still passengers and mail transportation. Maybe there was a decrease of engine drivers though.

Why? There's been a great increase in female engineers.

Ba-doom-tish!

I'd say TATMR takes place in the past. In fact, if you look at the Railway Series timeline, in 1952, Edward was having an overhaul, and Toby would have arrived only the railway in 1951, with Duck yet to show up. It does stretch a little bit when Diesel 10's class was built, but everything else adds up fairly well.

And yet it was implied that Diesel was the first Diesel the Sodor engines had ever seen, and he was obviously post-Duck. Additionally, Killaban station appears in TATMR, and we know from the Awdry maps of Sodor that it didn't exist in the 80s when the most recent maps were made.

I suppose that's true, but also, keep in mind that it's very possible, in fact likely, that Magic Railroad never really happened. One of the model makers even said in a SiF interview that Lady doesn't even really exist in-universe. Also, though it's implied, it is not factual that Diesel was the first diesel engine that the Sudrians ever saw. We've never gotten a solid, 100% confirmation. With the map thing, just because it wasn't on Awdry's map doesn't mean it didn't exist. It just hadn't been thought of canonically. I mean, Great Waterton isn't on any of his maps, but canonically, that town has existed since railways first were made on Sodor.

I'm more in with TATMRR (along with Season 8 and Season 17) being 3 separate reboots). Although I do like the idea of TATMRR being set when Edward was at the works and before Duck arrived.
