In the first 11 seasons, the show used live-action models exclusively. Season 12 used a mix of CGI and models. However, as of Season 13, it's entirely animated in CGI. See more »

When the first two series of "Thomas the Tank Engine" were broadcast in the UK, some of the episodes were linked with a montage of each engine being surrounded by a crowd, with a name plate in front of them. See more »
I've been a fan of Thomas all my life and i have to say that the older series is a lot better than the new one. i don't really like how hit entertainment change to cgi but after viewing it the animation was good. most of the episodes aren't that good anymore though. they use a lot of recycled plots and introduce characters we only see once. and hit didn't use characters that they had from previous seasons. i like to view before I give my opinions so ya if Your going to show your kid Thomas show the old episodes first. ill love Thomas for the rest of my life but i just hope hit does better writing in the future and they have with misty island rescue. i give the show an 8 out of 10
