For the general discussion of all things 'Thomas' that doesn't belong in other sections. Here you'll find topics ranging from the serious 'Thomas in the News', 'Post your letters and replies' to the zany 'Thomas Dreams' thread. SiF's catchall thread 'Postopia' can be found here where members can ask general questions about just about anything Thomas-related.

Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
Sleeper Agent: That said if item x isn't too much to start with you should be fine, especially if the item isn't bulky. Jun 13, 2019 12:19:43 GMT
Vought Sikorsky: I have, though only with books. It takes usually around 2-3 weeks, sometimes a month (Though the latter will probably only occur if you live on the West Coast). Shipping usually (For books) is $3.99 - $5.99. Hopefully this'll help! Jun 13, 2019 18:28:40 GMT *
Mr. Coffey Pot: I have now written a very special blog report for #throwbackthursday to celebrate Father's Day as I recall a trip to the Talyllyn Railway with my father. smurfydanblogs.blogspot.com/2019/06/throwbackthursday-awdry-centenary.html Jun 13, 2019 22:02:33 GMT
Fox: It's the next D-Day here ERS Fans with another Story Arc on ERS No.9 "Dockside Engines" about to drop! Our Starborn goes for a meander into the Midlands and meets a malicious meanie, as well as a legendary cadre of BR Depot! See what happens, coming up! Jun 14, 2019 13:20:14 GMT
dtchapman1: Thunderbirds are Go is such a bloody tease Jun 15, 2019 7:52:04 GMT
DmayExpress: What do you all of of my artwork of Wilbert holding a picture of Thomas? :) sodorislandforums.com/thread/7996/happy-108th-birthday-willbert Jun 15, 2019 8:48:24 GMT
Corbs: spot on Jun 15, 2019 11:58:49 GMT
engine87546: Beg pardon anyone I’m a slowly growing fan on the ERS but there’s a problem I’m having with the guide. Yes it gives info on the nwr but there’s nothing about how they became a private company and what did they do to expand in my opinion that should there;) Jun 16, 2019 1:53:04 GMT
Nicholas: , although I'm not too heavily involved in the ERS side of things, I'd say that this is more because the ERS is an addition to the material Awdry created, including The Island of Sodor: Its People, History and Railways, which covers that area. Jun 16, 2019 16:01:34 GMT
Madness: Tomorrow at 9pm (UK time), my brand new audio adaptation story will be premiering on YouTube. Here is the link if any of you want to hear what I have in store: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uqocX7MQjo Jun 16, 2019 21:19:45 GMT
Knuckles: Percy done! Check modelling thread out. Good init! Jun 17, 2019 15:28:06 GMT
Culdee Fell: I'm guessing by "became a private company" meant when BR was wound up in '90s. Jun 19, 2019 13:58:43 GMT
Nicholas: : Ah. I have likely misread that, there. My mistake! Jun 19, 2019 14:14:38 GMT
Auld Lang Syne: Hullo! It's been about 3 years since I last posted in the shoutbox, but I thought some folk might be interested in a new video I've made. It's a model trains with faces thing (there's lots of snow too) :) youtu.be/tocOZXjXz9 Jun 19, 2019 15:10:58 GMT
dtchapman1: Why is Thunderbird 2 used for the dumbest of things? Jun 22, 2019 11:05:48 GMT
Knuckles: Vicarstown Sheds in my Thread Jun 22, 2019 11:15:16 GMT
Sleeper Agent: Must be a BIG thread! Jun 22, 2019 16:43:33 GMT
ScarletSpider: Turns out I possibly might have the mumps. Jun 25, 2019 13:04:12 GMT
Sleeper Agent: I'd want a more concise diagnosis! If you have though that sucks but at least it shouldn't last for more than a fortnight at most. Jun 25, 2019 19:30:18 GMT
DmayExpress: Hey everyone. What are your thoughts about Lorenzo as "The Lost Engine", like Coronel Church and Duke? Jun 27, 2019 6:47:22 GMT *
