For the general discussion of all things 'Thomas' that doesn't belong in other sections. Here you'll find topics ranging from the serious 'Thomas in the News', 'Post your letters and replies' to the zany 'Thomas Dreams' thread. SiF's catchall thread 'Postopia' can be found here where members can ask general questions about just about anything Thomas-related.

DmayExpress: Just a question I want to understand. why dose the SiF Christmas Message ended after 2016? I honestly miss the Christmas Messages from SiF. Jan 3, 2020 5:31:00 GMT *
Christopher: Lack of time and people available to create the Christmas Messages, especially at such short notice when everyone is busy with jobs, Christmas, lives outside the forums, etc. Jan 3, 2020 12:35:08 GMT
Christopher: In more cheerful news, we've a new release in the Library, 'Fern the Wellsworth Engine' - sorry for the slight delay! sodorislandforums.com/thread/8116/rly-series Jan 3, 2020 22:58:50 GMT *

Grimstock: Don't know if this is the right place to ask, but here goes: I know the Snowdon Mountain Railway track gauge is considerably wider than that of the Talyllyn Railway, but I can't find info on the actual SMR engines' length Jan 13, 2020 3:52:03 GMT
Grimstock: See, I've been toying with the idea of making to-scale Wooden Railway customs of the Culdee Fell engines (I'm already trying my hand at the Skarloey Railway engines), and since I'm very fussy about scale, I figured it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion Jan 13, 2020 3:53:26 GMT
Vought Sikorsky: Grimstock, No. 1-5 are 16ft 11.75in long, 6ft 6.75in tall, and 9ft 6.25in wide. No. 6-8 are 19ft 5.25in long, 9ft 6.25in tall, and 6ft 5in wide. Jan 14, 2020 3:41:54 GMT
