Since The Great Race characters have been revealed, I do know some people with their names:
Raul (1)- A student who attended my high school Gina (1)- Someone who works at my mom's job Shane (1)- A classmate when I was in 2nd grade, and if I was born a boy, Shane would've been my name Carlos (1)- A person I was friends with from daycare

At one of my previous jobs from 2015, there were two guys there called Gordon & James. Of course I thought to myself, Henry obviously didn't get recruited. Insistently, my Mother has two colleagues at her work place called Henry & James and whenever one is off I sometimes tease her by saying: "Oh they'll get Gordon to do it", or if they'll doing a particular task she's told me about I sometimes say: "But not Gordon, then?" and she immediately gets what I was talking about.
Just seen someone called Arry on an episode of Pointless (a UK game show). Never come across it before but apparently it is a name of Hebrew origin with no apostrophe at the start - so slightly different to the H dropping Sodor character.
I know some girls who are named Emily, I also know a person from Australia who is named Thomas and I also know another Thomas, and I know a Timothy (though I know him as Tim, and maybe his real name isn't Timothy). I also know a few Bens, a Spencer, a few James's, I knew an Elizabeth, though I haven't seen her a long time. I also know a few Victorias, some Mikes, and maybe an Isebelle (I know her as an Izzy). I also know some Charlies, an Emma. And my first name is Gordon. And my dog is named Duke.
MrMilkDuctor: Most of them are hit era which I don’t mind since this is the I grew up on

aspiegurl: IDK where you are but it aired first the year I was born and in reruns until '98. It's on Youtube and there's a wikia for it.

MrMilkDuctor: I was born in the 2000s so i I didn’t even watch the reruns from 1993 - 1998, as I said the only time I watch shining time STS was probably on a unknown channel but hey that’s cool to hear

dtchapman1: I suppose that is one thing we do have to consider on this forum now. We are pretty much at a point that new members are going to have grown up largely with the HiT era.

Two Red Engines: Me, I was born in '96. I didn't really see the episodes when they were first broadcast (Dad's job took us overseas), but I had several VHS tapes from S1-8 - including the AUS releases of Thomas & Gordon, Percy & Harold, Trust Thomas,...
Sept 21, 2021 23:22:57 GMT
Two Red Engines: Story & Song Collection, and Thomas & The Special Letter!
Sept 21, 2021 23:23:27 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: The hit era is actually decent compare to what we have now also the merchandise was just incredible
Sept 21, 2021 23:33:57 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Two red engines i had only Like 5 DVD’s when I was young sadly I lost 3 of them hopefully you kept all of your VHS tapes
Sept 21, 2021 23:37:21 GMT
Two Red Engines: Thanks! I think I managed to keep most of them (mainly the individual S1-4 releases, as well as my Series 5 box set), as well as two DVDs, an S1-5 compilation ('Truck Loads of Fun') and a Series 6 release, ('The Chocolate Crunch')...
Sept 21, 2021 23:41:07 GMT
Two Red Engines: ...but some were lost to time, and others (mainly the S8 releases!) were just simply given away. Still have about 5 VHS releases (6 if you count the fact that my S5 box set came with two tapes) and those two DVDs, though, so not too bad in my opinion.
Sept 21, 2021 23:42:55 GMT
Two Red Engines: Say, anyone still got copies of their Railway Series books? Me, I've still got my 1997 edition of 'The Complete Collection' (the Gawdry version!), as well as RWS volumes 31, 32 and 40 (along with some stories from RWS 28 and 30 from the TTTE Book Club).
Sept 21, 2021 23:45:44 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Solid collection right there!
Sept 22, 2021 0:05:56 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: I have the complete first series of the classic collection DVD from 2003 the one that has a menu option,I might post that later and a another one from the hit era a steam team DVD these are the only ones I still have .

MrMilkDuctor: Classic Thomas is gonna come back?
Sept 22, 2021 10:15:53 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Or did I just read that in a wrong way
Sept 22, 2021 10:19:38 GMT
whosgeoffrey: I'm personally inclined to think of it as just another one of Allcroft's very heart-warming messages to the adult fanbase. If she is doing something new with Thomas, I doubt it'll be new episodes, though — maybe the biography she mentioned some time ago?
Sept 22, 2021 12:36:14 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Yeah that could be true
