It's with some sadness that I can tell you today that we've received confirmation that the SiF Twitter account cannot be reactivated, despite our best efforts with Twitter to resolve the issues we've had.
We are considering the option of creating a new account in the future, but for now, we're quietly content updating you via Facebook and here on the Sodor Island Forums. Rebuilding the following we had on Twitter would be a mammoth task, and it's not one we're currently ready for.
I do have plans for the Fansite, which I'll hopefully be able to put into effect over the coming months, that may benefit from the relaunch of a Twitter account, but for now, I'm grateful for the break from that aspect of social media, and have no immediate plans to make a new Twitter account.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this, it's an unfortunate situation, but I'm comfortable with it for now.
DmayExpress: Just a question I want to understand. why dose the SiF Christmas Message ended after 2016? I honestly miss the Christmas Messages from SiF.

Christopher: Lack of time and people available to create the Christmas Messages, especially at such short notice when everyone is busy with jobs, Christmas, lives outside the forums, etc.

Sleeper Agent: Man they'll NEVER let that Pug tooling die! Beside colouring in the smokebox door handle and the added cab and saddle grab bars I'm not actually sure what else has been updated but I wanna know if it'll still be able to leave Malled in the dust

Grimstock: Don't know if this is the right place to ask, but here goes: I know the Snowdon Mountain Railway track gauge is considerably wider than that of the Talyllyn Railway, but I can't find info on the actual SMR engines' length

Grimstock: See, I've been toying with the idea of making to-scale Wooden Railway customs of the Culdee Fell engines (I'm already trying my hand at the Skarloey Railway engines), and since I'm very fussy about scale, I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion
