After some deliberation, thought and discussion with friends and users of the forum, we have all agreed that from here on out, Sodor Island Forums will be available to view for non-members.
This is being done for multiple reasons, but the overarching one being that we have to do more right by the fandom, and in that, we’d like to use this opportunity to promote your fan-fictions, your modelling projects through the threads you’re creating on SiForums to document your ongoing work. We’d also like to engage more with you on general discussion and rightly, share the ongoing archive of info we have on the boards from over 14 years of discussions. Plus, it gives fans who aren’t part of the boards the opportunity to look in, see if it’s for them and join up to post in future.
There are certain elements which will not be available for non-members to view, but we’re hopeful you’ll sign up and see for yourselves.
jimzebmk1: Genuinely devastated to hear of Michael Angelis' passing. Such a huge part of my childhood, as I'm sure he was for everyone here. RIP Michael, you will be sorely missed by us all. Job well done, and thanks again for everything you did.

9: I'm not sure if now is an appropriate time to mention this, but I would also like to announce that I have raised £416.225 for the Bluebell Railway, by virtually rowing the distance of the English Channel.

Sleeper Agent: Gotta say Ringo will always be may fave but Michael was a most worthy successor and likewise sad that he has gone. Btw Engineerrailman you can edit and delete shouts on Probaords if you wish to combine the two.

Zack (Hufflepuff Batboy): There's something that keeps puzzling me; was Michael Angelis born in 1944 or 1952? I've always believed it was the latter, but some sources have said it's the former.

Zorgoth: Shared my condolences in the TV Series Discussion board; think I'm gonna watch some classic Thomas UK episodes on YT to remember Mr. Angelis by

Sleeper Agent: 1952. Not sure who published he was 76 first but The Guardian or otherwise he was 68.

Madness: Michael Angelis was always my favourite narrator. He gave a lot of great voices and he could always give you a good laugh at parts of his narration. R.I.P Michael Angelis .
