Lots of people have been narrators throughout this series. The first "guest appearance" was made in the earlier seasons by Ringo Starr. This was followed by Readings by …Michael Angelis, George Carlin, Alec Baldwin, and now even Pierce Brosnan. These are some pretty big names for a children's show.
The Rev. W.W. Awdry
Ringo Starr was the first.
Ringo Starr narrated Season 1 and Season 2 for both British and American audiences. After he left, George Carlin narrated Seasons 3 and 4 for American audiences and also re-na…rrated Seasons 1 and 2. Michael Angelis was and still is the British Narrator having started in S3. For Seasons 5 and 6, Alec Baldwin narrated in America and Thomas and The Magic railroad was the first time individual voice actors were used. After he left, Michael Angelis was the narrator for one video release followed by Michael Brandon who is still he American narrator. For The Great Discovery, Pierce Brosnan narrated for both audiences. As of now the American and British versions have completely different casts and the characters have individual actors although Brandon and Angelis are still the narrators.
Ringo Starr was the Storyteller and played Mr. Conductor for the first two seasons of the show; Thomas is voiced by Martin Sherman.
Thomas the Tank Engine is the real name.
thomas is no.1
They used to film the show using real model trains, but now (as of season 12), they use computer animation (CGI)
There are several! Emily is a big green engine with a tender, and she shows up quite a bit. There are also Molly (yellow engine), Elizabeth (a truck), Mavis (diesel engine… and a prominant character), and, of course, Thomas' coaches, Annie and Clarabel. Toby also has a female coach named Henrietta. Others I can think of are Rosie and Belle. There was also a girl in the Thomas the Tank Engine movie called Lady, but she doens't really show up in the series. The newest movie, King of the Railway, looks like it will introduce some new female characters as well.
Ringo Starr, George Collins, Alec Baldwin, Michael Brandon, and Michael Angelis.
A tank engine is a steam engine which carries its fuel (coal,oil,etc) and its water on its frame instead of a seperate tender. There are many varieties such as a side tank whi…ch has water tanks on its sides extending down to the footplate, saddle tanks in which the water tanks surround the top of the boiler, pannier tanks which are side tanks that do not extend all the way down to the footplate, rear tanks, in which the tank is behind the cab, etc. The fuel is held inside a coal bunker which is located either in te back or on the side.
In Ringo Starr
