Thomas why do you hate Americans?

Post by EdwardN.W.R. on Fri Jun 01, 2018 1:48 am

Lately Thomas And Friends has been introducing more and more international engines in the T.V. series. Thomas And Friends should also expand more on AMERICAN locomotives. So far, we've seen Vinnie but he makes Americans seem like bullies. The British seem to incorrectly think that Americans are still the war starting transcontinental railroad building people of the 1800s.

It's not quite that;

Strictly speaking it is actually quite reasonable for American engines to not be seen on Sodor; most were too big for British rails anyway. Sam for instance, would actually be too big for Sodor and probably would never actually appear there.

Hank- the main line, maybe, but definitely not branch lines.

Well, the thing is, American engines look like absolute dog ----, not just USA engines, but the Canadians and the Mexicans too, I'm pretty sure South American engines look like crap as well

Because it's a lot easier for a UK engine to travel to the Island of Sodor than an American one.

Yep. And to add to that, the Pennsy (Hank) and New York Central (Connor) had some of the smallest loading gauges in the United States. When the Norfolk and Western sent one of their J class Northerns to the Fort Wayne Division, they had a nasty habit of digging out chunks of concrete from the low-level platforms. I don't know about the Baltimore and Ohio (Caitlin), but I think they were about the same in terms of engineering.

The Brits have the smallest loading gauge not just in Europe, but in the world.

You know what they say about opinions, right?

TGC has posted his opinions before in ways I'd hate to recreate here, so forgive me that line of mine.

I just found out that Vinnie is not the only US steam loco. There's also Sam,Dustin, and Beau looks like an old US engine. Shocked
