THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
A BETTER VIEW FOR GORDON
Britt Allcroft and David Mitton
A new station is to be opened and Gordon is to take an empty express train. When he saw the new station 'Kirk Ronan', he found it dull and boring and need a panoramic view. Gordon was ill that day as well as steam was billowing in his cab. When he was repaired, Gordon is to go to the opening of the new station. But his brakes were not working and Gordon crashed right into the station. Gordon was repaired and arrived safely at the new station with a new panoramic view.
- The crash was awesome
- The crash was based on the Gare Montparnasse crash in 1895
- 'Something's broken inside you Gordon...' they hired a railway consultant to help out with the episodes, but, it doesn't sound consultant to me.
- Gordon being pompous like always, instead of maturing himself and accepting things in life in the RWS.
- How did Gordon turn around when he leaves the station, there's no turntable.
OK, this episode is my favourite episode because of the crash and if this episode has a teaching moral it states that railways are different towards any other kind of environment. But, there are a few nitpicks sorry. First off the driver says 'Something's broken inside you Gordon...' what was it? There was a railway consultant during production, how does that sound like railway terminology? Gordon being pompous as in the books, he has matured himself and granted things in his life.
But aside from the cons and nitpicking, the episode is great and the crash was spectacular, though it could scare kids in the target range. When I was a kid, I was afraid of this episode, but after seeing it, I loved it!
