Thomas the Tank Engine to become gender-balanced with more female trains, an African character and episodes abroad - in support of United Nations development goals

An overhaul of Thomas the Tank Engine will see two male engines turfed out to make way for female characters.


Henry and Edward will be moving out of Tidmouth Sheds to make way for Nia, an orange engine from Africa, and Rebecca, a yellow-coloured engine.


They will join Emily, the other female engine, as well as the boys Thomas, Percy James and Gordon.


And the tradition of Liverpudlian narration - which first began with Ringo Starr - will disappear, as well as the theme tune with its roll-call of engine names.

Since the end of the Ringo Starr narrated era, THTE has borne no resemblance to the original Rev. W Awdry stories.

The Thomas franchise is now owned by HiT Entertainment who are a subsidiary controlled by toy giant Mattel Inc.

It's the same with the Mr Men, which has none of the charm or style of the British original.

I find it very telling that my niece and nephew preferred the original British versions of many of these and other long running kids shows.

Like all things the left seek to co-opt and change, they will collapse and fail.

Please, ask Marvel comics how their SJW / Diversity propaganda program is going...?
