When did seth thomas stop making adamantine mantle clocks?
The Seth Thomas Adamantine finish was developed in about 1885. It was very popular so the method was used for over 30 years until 1917. The word adamantine means impenetrable and of course, in 1917, that is what was believed. Now we know that all finishes are penetrable, given the right agent. Seth Thomas has been making clocks in America since 1813. For more information see the Seth Thomas article at www.Placeofclocks.com, a registered Seth Thomas Dealer.

As far as I know, they are making a Thomas movie for late 2013/early 2014, but it takes place during World War II and is no sequel to Thomas and the Magic Railroad. In fact, the only other Thomas special to feature the character Lady is Calling All Engines. Other than that, there is no sequel or planned sequel to Thomas and the Magic Railroad.
