While I am slightly annoyed with how the T.V. series tries to feature Thomas wherever possible, this is because he is the most popular character, which I'm not surprised about. I think there is a little bit of Thomas in quite a few people I know. He's cheeky, naughty, quick to do the wrong thing when in a bad temper, and tends to let advice from older, more experienced engines such as Edward slip through one cab door and out the other (he doesn't listen). But he is also kind, sympathetic, brave and willing to help anyone out of trouble. While his appearing in episodes in which his role clearly suits other characters frustrates me (the original books, 'The Railway Series', was an ensemble series, and the 'friends' part of the title suggests a larger main cast of characters akin to the books), it is clear that the character has gone on a visible journey in his 70-year working life as a children's character. At the start, Thomas was overexcited and bored with his work as a station pilot. ...more
I mean well he is the main character and without Thomas none of these characters would be here I don't know I just pick him for my fave character - Aidanisawesome
Thomas is better than Percy, James, Gordon, Edward, Henry, Toby, Duck, Oliver, Donald, Douglas, Bill, Ben and Emily. He is my Favorite Character. - FinnsWorld

I remember seeing the episode when Gordon was teaching him to pull coaches and I don't think Gordon was a very good teacher to Percy all Gordon did was just show off
Percy is so cheerful! Thomas is the best in my opinion, but I still love Percy!
I Like Him because of his personality and his voice. - FinnsWorld
Hardworking, cheerful, and determined. He truly is the spirit of Sodor.V 12 Comments
Same here! James is very mischievous. Brilliant and best character on the show :D
James was always my favorite since he was the trouble maker of the group.
I Like Him Because, his vainness, and his theme. - FinnsWorld

Someone up top has bad grammar. Gordon has been my favorite since I was a child. I still have all of the old original Thomas tapes from way back when their mouths didn't move! The new streamlined engines can stay on the mainland. I like Spencer too he's cool.
I don't think Gordon is a very good express engine anymore because I don't Gordon knows what he's doing a lot of times and he never arrives on time also and I think he is a little bit too old fashioned also and I think it's time to get a faster streamlined engine to takeover the express and I think we should get an modern streamlined engine like Connor or Caitlin and they would arrvive on time also and things would go much faster also?
What's up with this comment being copied and pasted on every list on TheTopTens listing for gordon!? - derpyunikitty
I think Gordon should be fired and replaced with Connor instead because he's knows what he's doing And he would do much better job of pulling the express then Gordon did and he was just not fast enough to be on time also?
Neil crone still voice Gordon anymore?V 23 Comments
I Like Sir Handel, He's Very Funny to Me. - FinnsWorld
I like Sir Handel, he's like the narrow-gauge version of James.
Such a heart-warming dynamic with Duke & Peter Sam. - FinnsWorld
Narrow gauge version of James.V 3 Comments
Let's make this straight, I think Peter Sam is the narrow gauge version of Gordon. Respect my opinion please.
Peter Sam is also the narrow gauge version of Percy because their names both begin with the same letter.
Peter Sam is the narrow gauge version of Percy because they're both green, cheeky and naive.

I hate the way he was treated in season 19. I mean, he only got three speaking roles in that season! I mean, come on!
Did the Toby the tram engine events took place in 1949 before the events of Gordon the big engine (1950)? - FinnsWorld
Is Toby going to appear in the great race?
He was the best. watch season 1s "Dirty Object" to see literally the best roast in all of T.V. history.V 6 Comments
Guess what everyone! Duncan is now in full CGI! Look up Duncan and the Grumpy Passenger and Duncan the Humbug for him in full CGI! You're welcome!
He has grown on me since his reintroduction into the series.
He's a plain blunt engine, he speaks as he finds. Lovin' him!

Duck is better than Emily. Duck is the REAL number 8 around here!
Personally my favorite characters are Donald (9) and Douglas (10) because they're the original tough guys. And don't worry, I won't dislike your comment.
A lot of fans rave about Duck, but he hasn't really done that much besides going on and on about the Great Western Way. Just my opinion...

Why is Donald better than Douglas? You're said that four times already!
I Think The contenders are Fun. But A Lot a People hated Them. - FinnsWorld
Yeah we do, watch Love Me Tender.V 11 Comments
I don't like her. She's bossy arrogant and was the reason why we never saw duck for a long time. - derpyunikitty
Because she was not introduced until Season 7. In all the seasons before that she didn't appear because she didn't exist.
I Like her because, her basis and her voice, that she's the leading female engine. - FinnsWorld
Whas Emily built in 1870 - FinnsWorldV 14 Comments
Do you think molly should return yes or no? - FinnsWorld
