Hello! Some of y'all probably recognize me :') I've been scarce for a good long while, mostly because of university, and personal obligations, but I'm not quite so busy anymore, and I'd love to get a little more active again.
I'm currently working on some new projects and resuming some old ones, so you might expect to see some of it soon!
Hello world, it's me. I'm going to be pretty busy for the next couple months or so, and I'll be having to drop out of SiF for a while.
Don't get me wrong, I'll still pop in to check things out now and then, and maybe a short post here or there, but don't expect any long epics of post from me for a while (well, save two that I know the Blog Moderators have been waiting on for quite some time now and will be pleased to see).
With that said, see you all in a few months!
Live your morals, be kind to others and have fun even if all your friends are pessimists. That’s how life works. If anybody says different, just tell them NAH ~ ThomasFan88 2018

I started a new job two days ago, and it has a very demanding schedule. As such I won't be on here every night (and when I am on, it will be during the afternoon), but I don't intend to vanish completely, I will check in as often as I can. It will also be much longer before any new Attica Falls Railroad stories appear.

Just to let everybody know, that from 14th September I shall be away for two weeks in Orlando. Yes, I know, they'd not long had Hurricane Irma down in Florida and I did have a possible threat that I wouldn't be able to go away because of it as I did get an email last week before Irma hit Florida.
However, I was informed that I would receive a follow-up Email if anything would affect my holiday and I haven't so I'm good to go. Of course I've been in a Hurricane once before, and not intention of going into another one, so hopefully all shall go well and be online again in two weeks.
Just thought that I'd let you all know that I've been back home since around 11am, but touched down on UK soil around 8am as we were ahead of schedule (well so the Captain of my flight said). Even though Hurricane Irma did hit Orlando, she certainly didn't dampen my holiday too much or barely at all. Yes I'm feeling fairly tired, but I know that as usual I'll get back to where I often end-up after a holiday. But as for America and Orlando, the only renowned phrase I have to you is: I'll Be Back!
Wow, I can't believe it's been 11 years since I joined... and for the last 7 I've been too busy to be a regular contributor, unfortunately. It's a long, boring story, but it ends with me being able to work for myself full-time as an artist. I'm still busy (getting married in July!), but I'll have a bit more time to pop in and participate again.
Hope everyone has been doing well, and welcome to all newcomers who joined in my absence!
My parents and I have moved out of our house temporarily, as extensive repairs need to be done to the bathroom and utility room. I do not know how long this will be for - it could be three months or six, depending on the rate of the work. We'll try to establish an internet connection in our flat, but it could take a while yet. Until then, I will have limited internet access.
I've been gone from the forums for over a year now. In that time, I have moved to Los Angeles, gotten an apartment, and a job. I've been quite busy and overwhelmed with moving out of my parents' house and starting my real adult life, and had to put checking the forums on the back burner. Right now, I am back home visiting my parents on vacation for Hanukkah, and I figured it would be a good time to check in.
I am hoping that in 2019, I will be able to have more time to check in on here and contribute. But for now, I'm just saying a quick hello to keep my account active and prove I'm not dead and say that I hope to be on here more often!
Send me a message if you're looking for a voiceover, I'd love to gain some experience!
Hello all, just to let you know if there’s a drop in activity from me, it’s due to power shutdowns in California’s Bay Area. Recent fire and strong wind activities is putting the state’s power provider on edge, so I’m without electricity for a bit and the internet satellites aren’t fairing well.
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.
Sept 21, 2021 21:20:27 GMT
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
Sept 21, 2021 22:02:48 GMT
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.
Sept 21, 2021 22:26:37 GMT
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 .
Sept 22, 2021 0:06:33 GMT
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
