Goofs

Henry spoke to Hiro about his problem of needing special coal, and was upset over it. The creators forgot that in season 1, episode 18, when he first got the coal, he was happy and Thomas was jealous. Then in episode 19, he was taken off the special coal so his firebox can get upgraded. He does not use special coal anymore, period. See more »

Quotes

Michael Brandon: Narrator: Suddenly, Spencer whistled long and hard! James and Toby heard Spencer. Suddenly, James and Toby steamed out. Spenser had puffed to close to Hiro! James blew his whistle /whoo whoo!\, and Toby rang his bell /ching ching-ching ching!\. Together they chased the mighty Spencer down the track and away from Hiro.

About time Thomas got updated
3 November 2009 | by (Bath) – See all my reviews

I get to watch it all with my now 3 year old son, Roary, all the Pixar movies, and of course Thomas the Tank Engine.

Hero of the Rails is now mostly CGI, and it works very well, much better animated than previous series over the past 20 years.

And one thing that is an absolute blessing, Michael Angelis NOT doing all the various voices, he's fine at narration, but some of his 'impersonations' grate... very heavily! Now each train has their own voice and gives them a little more character.

My son loves it.

There's little point in going into the storyline too much, suffice to say any Thomas fans will like it, although its pretty much a retread of the Thomas' Great Discovery feature as well, instead of finding a long lost village, Thomas now finds a long lost train.

Still, kids will love it, it goes on for an hour without overstaying its welcome.
