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.

TheSaddleTank: So how's everyone doing? May 22, 2020 10:33:12 GMT
fobhew22: The latest ERS Volume has now hit the Library in a half term treat! And it's the one you've been waiting for, as we follow up on the arrival of Honey on the Ffarquhar branch line. Find out how she's fitting in after our cliffhanger in her first appearance! May 22, 2020 14:09:37 GMT

CelestialFaerie (Josie): To anyone interested, I've posted an essay on the current state of the series and what I think Mattel might do once the show comes back from hiatus in the SiF-ellaneous section. sodorislandforums.com/thread/8231/death-realism-thomas-friends-essay May 23, 2020 7:36:51 GMT
PercyFan1998: Anyone else noticing that the forum's wallpapers are now just a collection of "unavailable"? May 23, 2020 7:51:41 GMT
CelestialFaerie (Josie): It's probably problems with photobucket. May 23, 2020 7:55:58 GMT

wolf89: What are these features exactly? May 23, 2020 19:23:06 GMT
