This is a charming, classic piece of British story telling: one of the first wholly CGI animated series to be produced for children.
The episodes are warm and funny with uplifting themes and great plots. Unlike Thomas the tank Engine the Underground Trains travel to many locations - the beach, the fairground - and Ernie and Millie, who look after the trains, get into terrific adventures and great exploits.
An international element is brought to the episodes with trains from Sydney, Australia and even Japan calling in to visit the British trains.
Some of the animation is raw but the overall feeling of the series is safe and happy. It has all the elements of a long lasting and memorable television series. Well done BBC for continuing to broadcast it!
