SiF's catchall thread 'Postopia' can be found here where members can ask general questions about just about anything Thomas-related.

Shoutbox

Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
OJ: I would like to have seeen another series but looks like the show will go out with a bang. Feb 15, 2020 15:50:30 GMT
Madness: 'Thunderbirds Are Go' is coming to an end after next Saturday's episode. I saw 'The Long Reach' myself and I loved it, and what a shocker to the end of part one. I hope part two is a superb finale to the series. Feb 16, 2020 23:30:11 GMT
Alan B'Stard: New episode of the Talking Thomas podcast! This time looking at the next three episodes in Series 2: Saved from Scrap, Old Iron, and Thomas and Trevor/A New Friend for Thomas! anchor.fm/talkingthomas/episodes/Saved-From-ScrapOld-IronA-New-Friend-fo Feb 19, 2020 1:38:08 GMT
fobhew22: The Beast From The East continues to make it's mark on the ERS in this week's volume. Check out 'Overwhelmed Engines' in the Library now! :) Feb 21, 2020 12:26:33 GMT
Mr. Coffey Pot: Tonight's episode of #TheStationMastersOffice will be premiering soon, followed with the special #FlyingScotsman video! Don't miss them! youtu.be/ZERUQW83OU8 youtu.be/VHC_o-4NIIg Feb 21, 2020 19:38:35 GMT
Fox: It's another full three-week cycle completed, dear ERS Followers and Friends, so...you know what that means, surely by now...? That's right: more ERS Novel goodness in the form of another Story Arc to arise in ERS #9 "Dockside Engines"... Feb 22, 2020 0:02:40 GMT
Fox: Now dropping is the latest twist in the midnight madness, in the crepuscular cavalcade, the dreaming dance of the dockside that is this novel's ongoing saga: Dancers In The Dusk! Bon appetit... Feb 22, 2020 0:04:28 GMT
travelsonic: Wild Nor' Wester 3D gone … honestly, I don't wanna start a war, but this trend of places going and shutting down and rescinding all their content, and essentially punishing the rest of the community instead of asking our help is getting really annoying. Feb 22, 2020 1:38:20 GMT
travelsonic: IRRESPECTIVE of the completely valid feelings that come (though how many reskins were distributed versus merely being made and showcased? Anyone know) Feb 22, 2020 1:39:18 GMT
dtchapman1: And thus, we have gotten our conclusion, and boy was it worth the wait. Feb 22, 2020 8:56:07 GMT
jjlr: Thing is though, I volunteer in a Charity Shop 3 days a week (still looking for paid work) including Saturday mornings. So after the longest week, I had the longest 4 hours of my life on top of that. And the On-Demand on my TV has stopped working... Feb 22, 2020 14:13:44 GMT
jjlr: …so I had to watch it on my laptop. But I'm watching it again on the TV when it's working again because you're right - it certainly was. Gerry would be very proud indeed. Feb 22, 2020 14:14:31 GMT
OJ: I enjoyed it too. A good end to a great series.I hope to see Mechanic as an official Thunderbirds characer as he was great. Feb 22, 2020 14:29:19 GMT *
Chris: Is it completely finished now then, or are there hopes to do more? Feb 22, 2020 17:40:44 GMT
OJ: I think it's completely finished going by rumours. It had a good ending. Feb 22, 2020 17:46:41 GMT
jjlr: Well, the ending left an opportunity open for a Fourth Series. But then again, depends if ITV or the producers want to carry it on, or if they want to stop here and not risk the show going stale and repetitive. I guess we'll have to wait and see... Feb 22, 2020 18:22:07 GMT
dtchapman1: I think Amazon will have the final say actually. They do own the rights for international releases. Feb 22, 2020 18:33:18 GMT
Galloping Sausage: I'm getting rid of this Spencer as it no longer runs (No face or tender). www.ebay.com/itm/254521017444 Feb 23, 2020 16:27:37 GMT
Stanier5mt: Anyone else listened to the, "On the Right Track" podcast? Feb 23, 2020 19:32:56 GMT *
Chris: This news completely passed me by earlier in the week. Very sad indeed. www.nme.com/en_au/news/tv/recess-star-jason-davis-has-died-aged-35-2610802 Feb 23, 2020 23:25:16 GMT
