I remember visiting this website once...
It was called Sodor Island - A Thomas Fan Site
Here's some stuff I remembered seeing:
Before the Bookmark documentary and the written biography sharing the same title, Brian Sibley covered the Rev. Awdry\'s career in a BBC Radio 4 program broadcast the 15 May, 1986 with the title The Thomas the Tank Engine Man. Fans can now listen to this cheerful radio documentary streamed through SoundCloud.com - Enjoy!
We\'re pleased to say that the site is back in business :)
All our best, J.Gratton (co-editor) on behalf of M. Clutterbuck (TRLOTTTE Administrator)
1984 brought us the arrival of a new incarnation of Awdry\'s works in the form of the Television Series which has been in production across three incarnations of model and, as of 2009, CGI animation, across
25 years. Holding 12 model based series, four in full CGI,
a 13-episode spin-off series, a theatrical feature film, five feature length specials and participation in a UK No.1 Charity Single for BBC
) to its credit, it is looking set to continue for many years to come, and currently going through its biggest spat of popularity since the 1980s when it was originally launched.
In 2004, Thomas was bought out by HIT Entertainment, home to Bob the Builder, which featurws Bob as the main character together with his group of friends and their vehicles which possessed anthromorphic or human traits. This was essentially similar to those of Thomas and his group of friends in Sodor Island and curently a line of
has gained popularity following the footsteps of the widely successful Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends line of merchandise and children\'s toys and books.
This website looks at many different aspects of Thomas The Tank Engine in depth, through essays, reviews, parodies, fan fiction, multimedia such as fan-dubbed episodes, music videos and much more. I\'d like to extend a debt of thanks to all who have contributed to its development, sent words of encouragement and to all the good people who have visited and kept on coming back to see the latest updates!
