Not surely if there's already a Thread in existent somewhere, but its something that's been playing around my mind for a while now so I'd thought I'd take the plunge and throw it out there.
So, obviously we know that Wilbert hasn't been with us since the last century and Christopher is getting on in years but the simple question is if you could ask either them anything about the world which the Father created and the Son expanded, what would it be?
For me personally, I always wanted to know how Wilbert decided when creating the characters what colour they would be i.e. why did he decide to pick Red for James or Blue for Gordon. Obviously I know Christopher gave a good explanation as to why Jock was Yellow along with the name, and I'm to assume that the Great Western engines colours were obviously from the Great Western Railway of time. But with some of his core characters, its always intrigued me because as someone who does writing I find the Awdry's idea of his their characters a variety of different paintworks quite inspiring.
So feel to reveal what you'd like to ask the Awdrys if you could. Obviously nothing distasteful. If any have met Christopher because I know some probably have, then feel free to share what you intriguing question you asked him.
P.S. If this thread seems deemed as unnecessary, then feel free to close it.
jjlr: Hey - just another reminder that I don't know where I'd be without you lot. Life may not be easy, but it's folks like all of you and all the positive stuff you do that helps me get through each day of our wonderful lives.

Fox: It's another ERS Novel weekend, which means we get to see the final Story Arc of book Two of ERS #9 Dockside Engines! Just what did Stephen mean when he said 'we don't leave family behind'? And just why did Marina never make it into the Railway Series?
