In America, didn't "Thomas" first appear in "Shining Time Station"?

(The only reason I know that is because of Ringo Starr's participation.)

B)


You might be correct. "Shining Time Station" was on our local NPTV and they were all gushing about Ringo Starr.

"Tank engine" speaks to the design a rail locomotive but we shortened it to "engine". The word "tank" is used to describe fuel load or immense storage capacity. When the tank was invented during World War I, it was a code word to confuse the Germans. They thought "large vat of liquid". They didn't expect an armored vehicle crossing over No Man's Land.

So... where is this offensive clip? All I saw at the link was one video reading the text in LB's post, and a video ad for the new series. Is the NRA version on that page and I missed it?

No, they are actually selling political indoctrination to children.

They can keep their warped agendas away from under-aged impressionable children.

Since Thomas works for the UN now, how long before there is an episode about Israel's occupying stolen lands and their massacring of Palestinian children?

I haven't seen the clip nor any reports of anyone calling it offensive. This is a news account of an NRA TV episode.

Well, once they 'digest' whatever it is that's stuck in their craw, what they produce is what they print, and morons eat it up with two spoons.

Again, for the left it's all about consistency...

I wonder if it will be as "successful" as the time Lionel Trains produced the Lady Lionel. Turns out girl model railroaders did not want a pink engine pulling a couple of pastel freight cars. They wanted real trains just like their brothers.

I think renaming has more to do with copyright than comprehension. Wham! was officially Wham!(UK) in the United States. Same band with lead singer George Michael and the racecar guy Andrew Ridgley. Same songs and videos. Because of licensing and distribution, they had to tweak the name.


True. A few UK bands, notably indie legends (and one of my favs) The Charlatans, have UK stuck on their name in the US.

This is enough for me. Anything connected to the UN is globalist and Leftists indoc manure.

"Mattel announced Friday that "Thomas & Friends," a Nick Jr. show, would add characters to its newest season from around the world and partner with the UN to promote its Sustainable Development Goals."


As for the extreme labeling by the NRA, that kind of extreme stuff that just makes you sputter in indignation--how does that feel? Happens to the good guys all the time. Or did you miss how David Hogg and most of Leftist tv propaganda (you would call it "news") were calling the NRA murderers, even though the NRA (and Marco Rubio) haven't killed anyone? How about all the colleges who right now have Leftist professors saying in classes that Donald Trump is a Nazi?

Boo f'ing hoo.

You know what's even more extreme? Steve Scalise (who, by the way, I don't like much) being shot by a hate-maddened Leftist inspired by EXTREMIST rhetoric either said by elected Dems or said by their supporters and winked at.

What’s next? Leftists are going to say we need black panda toys and white gorilla toys? And then call conservatives racist?

Does that mean all the steam engines are switching from coal to solar?

I still haven't seen the clip. Would prefer to see it before passing judgement, instead of relying on the impartiality of USA Today.

You can see some great art on boxcars. As a railfan, I think it would be cool to see a railroad like UP or BNSF paint their engines and rolling stock like that.

I agree, some of it is really quite good.

Lego has had that same problem as well.
