Either the crew member is a dwarf, or that's one big f***off Thomas!
There's always a Sting in these adverts...
Didn't they do a Percy as well?
After Thomasland at Drayton Manor perpetrates a steam-outline Thomas with *false wheels* (it's a bogie unit underneath), those habitant in fully-fenestrated abodes need to be suitably careful before ballistically interjecting fragments of rock
It’s a genuine historic locomotive underneath the Thomas stuff. I suspect everything is essentially scaled up to be in proportion to US loading gauge rolling stock. http://www.trainweb.org/bedt/bedt/BEDT15.html
I've never been a huge fan of USA steam locos, but that Porter saddle tank switcher does look really nice. A shame it's been converted, hopefully the original bits still survive.
Yes, they did manufacture a "Percy" , but it is unpowered (and has a "smoke generator" of some sort) . The train is powered by a diesel switcher (possibly their version of "Mavis") located at the other end of the stock!
They have painted up one of their Bo-Bo diesels as "Mavis", but it is rather unlike the Drewry diesel it is supposed to represent...
A bit too large to work Ipswich/Yarmouth/Lowestoft Docks or the Wisbech & Upwell!
