My grand-daughter loves Thomas - she's just over a year old As for the Thomas mocking thing at the top, the start is accurate - it WAS after the war when they ran down the railways, but it wasn't "nazis" - they actually pushed major upgrades to railways - but the greedy industrialists and even greedier Tory (and Labour who could have undone Beechings lunacy but didn't) MPs of early 60s who ran down the rails to push road building (nothing to do with the man at the centre of it - Marples - being involved with materials for building roads of course) Now we need those closed lines but too expensive to re-open them
I've just seen that for the first time - brilliant!
Cold. Poor emissions.
Never forget how they came to be.
