It's actually the other way round - Wilbert did his own version of Christmas Party (although the landslide from the RS Christmas Party is referenced to.). Christopher did the same with Christmas Adventure.
I just got a copy of Thomas and the Missing Christmas Tree to complete my trio. I'd say it's the best of the three. There are some funny parts, such as when Henry and Gordon are discussing where Thomas might have got too. Gordon suggests he may be stuck in a tunnel. Henry, offended says that he's more likely to have been turned onto a branch line. Then Donald shuts them both up by suggesting that he could have run into a cow! Then there's the apearance of Father Christmas, emerging from Harold, a nice touch. Then you see him talking to the engines. That's just sureal! But I think this book was aimed at TV audiences, mainly because of the engines who are there and are not there. Boco, as well as Bill and Ben are all there though Oliver, Bear abd Mavis are not. Plus the fact that Donald and Douglass are in their origianl black livery, instead of their proper blue.
We are sorry to announce, that the 10.22 service to Tidmouth has been cancelled. This is due to an engine refusing to come out of a tunnel.
I have Thomas and the Evil Diesel. Some of the drawings are peculiar like how Thomas managed to get passed Daisy when there is only a single track line! I also have the Island of Sodor: People, History and Railways. An excellent book. I would reccommend anyone to get hold of it if they can. It is the most treasured pocession of Thomas memorbilia that I own. I also have Sodor: Reading Between the Lines which is a good accompany to the Island of Sodor.
I think it's pretty awesome how they tied in the Learning Curve model to fit an actual story in a book. When the LC model of Stepney with the museum cars was released years ago *I* had no idea what provoked such a release.
I guess those who made the purchase can now appreciate the product better, knowing that it serves a purpose.
Ahh, memories.. I used to have the Please Read to Me TV series books, plus Catch me, Catch Me! Happy Birthday Thomas! Counting with Thomas, Thomas' Big Blue Treasury, Tell Time With Thomas, Thomas and the School Trip, and New Tracks for Thomas.. unfortunately, my mom made me get rid of them.
I read Thomas-saurus Rex not too long ago at Border's. It had an interesting little side story from when the Fat Controller was still a little kid and Stepney was brand new engine. Glad to see they gave the fat man a bit of a past with an old engine
I've seen this set in bookstores before now, and Jake's more or less spot on with the titles. They're all from Series 8, however, so I think Thomas' Dusty Day is either Thomas To the Rescue or Spic and Span
I was in the bookstore yesterday and saw a book titled "May the Best Engine Win" featuring Thomas and Emily. The two are given jobs and compete to see who can complete theirs the fastest. I just flipped through it though, didn't read it. I noticed in one illustration, Emily goes to the quarry to get her trucks loaded with rock. In the background you can see Alfie and Ned, and either Max or Monty in the foreground (the number wasn't showing). And Ned was made of steel, had a window on his side and no writing, and his bucket had teeth. o.o

zeldatheswordsm: Railway modelling hot take: Daylight under the boiler is overrated in OO, and it might be best to glue acetate shielding behind it on locos that have it to mitigate dust inflow. Especially locos where the body is actually screwed to the chassis.
