Did You Know: Diesel 10's (Possible) Original Make by CCB-18 Did You Know: Diesel 10's (Possible) Original Make by CCB-18
This after viewing a read-along video of a Thomas & the Magic Railroad book "Diesel 10 Means Trouble" that something struck me (but not as hard as Pinchy in the image above).

You'll notice that Diesel 10 doesn't have his claw, in the left image. This is because the claw is concealed under a panel on D10's roof (as is mentioned in the text on the right). 

Was this what the creator's originally thought of when they created this railway devil, or was it this an afterthought for the books? Since Pinchy is seen throughout the movie, as well as the features and episodes that included D10, as well as the models that followed...(though with CGI this sort of feature would now be possible, I reckon).

Did any of you viewers know this? Doesn't matter if you did or not, but what do you viewers think?

Nope, I actually thought in the book when i saw this, He was just a diesel with no pinchy, but later added in the cgi.

I think that Diesel 10 looks like a bald man with Pinchy in his roof-module-thing.

I have that book!  And yea, I think this was originally going to be in the script.  In the picture, Diesel 10 looks bald-ish.

Yes that was the original idea for the film.

I have that book. So that's why Twinkletoes has his claw concealed in this book!

Correction, "Twinkletoes" was the nickname Diesel 10 calls Mr Conductor...

Yeah, but Twinkletoes is my nickname for Diesel Ten because he calls everyone including Mr. Conductor "Twinkletoes".

Does the book happen to have been written before the movie was finished? "Pinchy" being hidden within him is not the only similarity to the original script.

Anyone wishing to operate a replica D10 "legally" should show this to their engineer(s).

Well, actually, this is quite well known, but the first time I've seen the illustrations. See, in the original TATMRR script, D10's roof was supposed to open up and reveal Pinchy, but I guess they weren't able to do that with the models. Plus picky test audiences, etc etc, gave us what became the final cut.
