Trackmaster Stafford Thomas The Tank Engine Train with Spencer & Henry

Thomas and Friends Stafford as seen in Episode 17 of Series 16. Tomy Takara Plarail compatible. Spencer shows Stafford around Sodor but does not heed Victor’s warning that Electric Engines can run out of battery power. ( Anybody who uses Trackmaster trains regularly will know Stafford’s problem!!!!) Stafford is being released as a Greatest Moments Train with 2 trucks. We’ve just bought him on his own. The 2 trucks shown in our video are not the 2 trucks to be supplied but they are the nearest we can find to the ones shown in marketing material.

Battlefield Line ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ 65 Years. 1st May 2010

The 1st May 2010 on the Battlefield Line Railway marked the Official 65th Anniversary of Thomas the Tank Engine. As usual, the Railway made sure this event was commemorated in style as I’m sure this video shows! At the beginning we see the event officially opened by a marching Silver Band and Thomas making a grand entrance as he breaks through the ribbon. Other attractions throughout the day featured: Engine races, brakevan rides with Fergus, sing-a-long songs, story re-enactments, face painting, punch and judy, interactive model railway and a chance to fill up Thomas’s tanks. Highlights of the are: the engine races shown throughout, YouTuber Steampics being soacked with water at 5:50(!!), the Water Pistol fight between drivers at 6:55, my favourite quote of the weekend at 8:40 over the tannoy system, the rather embarrasing ‘Wheels on Thomas’ dance at 9:03 (which I was requested to put on!) and the rather ‘sweet’ Birthday Coal Cake at the end of the video. Locomotives in Operation were: -Jinty No.47327 (Thomas) -LNER B1 No.1306 ‘Mayflower’ (Henry) -Aveling & Porter ‘Blue Circle’ (Fergus) -Class 25 No.D5217 (Boco) -Hybrid DMU Class 116 & Class 118 (Daisy) The whole reason for me going was to help run the Soar Valley Model Railway Clubs’ Interactive Model Railway layout which uses Thomas Stock from the Hornby range, helping to raise money for Rainbows Childrens Hospice in loughborough as well.
