Shoutbox

Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
Armada Starscream: I have a question. Is there a thread where users can post summaries of their whole head-cannon and fandom worlds? Like how they would see Sodor progress, and how they imagined things happening? Im not sure Fan THeories Explanations and Reasons is enough Jul 28, 2020 7:29:59 GMT
splatter: Idk. That would be sick though! Jul 28, 2020 8:18:03 GMT
9: It depends really on how you want to go about it. If you're thinking of creating your own take on Sudrian History, for example, I would suggest you try one of the fanfic-related pages of the site. Otherwise, it depends how you want to set it up Jul 28, 2020 10:19:02 GMT
9: Although, does anyone know of any towns, villages, etc..., on Sodor that aren't connected to the Fat Controller's railway? I was thinking about using them as locations in either stories about road vehicles like Bertie, or stories that take place in history Jul 28, 2020 10:31:40 GMT *
splatter: I don't know. Considering how much of Sodor is spanned by railway lines, I doubt there'd be many villages that aren't close to or centred around a track. Jul 28, 2020 11:01:50 GMT
Armada Starscream: 9: yes it would be on things like that, with users able to go into detail on things like fan history, backstory, and statuses of things they like to consider their own canon. Jul 28, 2020 17:02:44 GMT
Armada Starscream: I wanted to know if there is already a thread for that, or if I or someone should create one Jul 28, 2020 17:03:58 GMT
Armada Starscream: splatter: I agree Jul 28, 2020 17:05:43 GMT
splatter: As far as I can see there is no thread for that. Feel free to create one though - it's a really great concept! Jul 28, 2020 17:32:30 GMT
Parker Productions: I've hypothesised about what I feel after examining information what 20 minute cuts of TUGS eps may have been like. I'd be interested to hear everyone's thoughts on it. :) sodorislandforums.com/post/378050/thread Jul 28, 2020 17:34:06 GMT
Parker Productions: Send your thoughts on the 'Tugs Musings and Speculations' thread :) Jul 28, 2020 17:34:59 GMT
Culdee Fell: As far as the Railway Series goes, Ulfstead is the obvious one. Jul 28, 2020 18:34:51 GMT
9: Thanks! Also, did you guys happen to notice anyone we all know making a cameo appearance in a segment about Teddy Boston, in one of the latter's home movies, during a steam railway programme shown on the BBC two nights ago? I know I did! Jul 28, 2020 23:26:34 GMT
Madness: I have my new 'Mini-Series' episode of Season 5 premiering tomorrow night. Here it is: youtu.be/qBCuETJa3xA Jul 30, 2020 0:14:59 GMT
Vought Sikorsky: In terms of other isolated areas in Sodor, there's also Balladrine, Balladwail, Ballaswein, Cabalnoo, Cregwir, Droghan-y-Claghan, Elsdale, Kellaby, Kirkleas, & Killaban, as well as Harwick. Jul 30, 2020 6:02:52 GMT *
Vought Sikorsky: Though if you're going off TVS Canon that last one would be excluded (And most likely a few others as well considering the TVS' liking of giving stations random place-names). Jul 30, 2020 6:03:47 GMT
fobhew22: The latest SHEB volume has just hit the Library, and its a very fittingly titled instalment considering the hot temperatures we've had in the UK today! Read 'Overheated Engines' now! :) Jul 31, 2020 18:13:53 GMT
Madness: My new audio story premieres tomorrow night at 10pm (UK time). I hope you all can make it :D . www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlxX197tYZk Aug 3, 2020 0:13:08 GMT
