The Cronk Forest/Timber Mill Company Locomotives by Galaxy-Afro The Cronk Forest/Timber Mill Company Locomotives by Galaxy-Afro
From left to right, Ferdinand (#1), Bash (#2), Dash (#3), Lexi (#4), and Stacy (#5).

In my version of Thomas & Friends, Misty Island doesn't exist. Instead, a company located in Cronk Forest exists. The engines are based off of American designs, but were built to specifications related to British Railway designs at the Crovan's Gate Workshops specifically for the company. These engines are privately owned, and are painted in the dark blue of the company's colors. The exception to the four American engines is Stacy, who was built as an experimental engine from old parts found in a scrapyard on the Mainland.

For me, this easily explains how these four American engines can speak with British, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, etc. accents. It also explains how their prototypes have come about on Sodor! Of course stay tuned, for more of my established Thomas universe is beginning to come together! ~ Afro

Edit ~ Added the upgraded sprites of Bash, Dash, and Ferdinand in the livery I designed to replace the original sprites.
Edit #2 ~ Upgraded Lexi's sprite to the most recent one by :iconprincess-muffins:

In terms of personality, I'll be going with Ferdinand being the Cronk Forest equivalent of Duke, and the other 5 (including Jasmine), being the younger ones or students so to speak.

Bash and Dash would be troublesome, but still caring towards Ferdinand as he's their "Granpuff". They would also have a rivalry with Bill and Ben.

Lexi would still be genderfluid, but is also at a stage in life where she's trying to figure out who she is as an engine. Clumsy, but a big heart.

Stacy is the quiet one, working while humming often to herself. She tries to be neutral on everything to the best of her ability.

Jasmine (located below) is a bit snobby, but will come through when in need.
 Jasmine the Steam Rail-Car Hybrid

 In my gallery, the Search and Rescue has simply become the Sodor Fire Crew with the exception of Belle who will become a mainline Express engine with Gordon, Rebecca, and several others.

Lexi seemed to be a "lost" female Logging Loco to me upon watching Journey Beyond Sodor, top that off with the fact that the Molly the Yellow Engine twitter mentioned "more logging locos on Misty Island, you don't want to see.", and boom Lexi joins the crew!

Stacy again, is an experimental engine built from spare parts. Her story is being planned out. I also have added a SIXTH loco to the fleet named Jasmine who is the passenger engine for the company, and delivers workers to work. She is a Steam Rail-Car Hybrid.

I WOULD LOVE THAT! ;) I'm still building my own headcanon at the moment, so their introduction has yet to be planned. ~ Afro

Thanks, I pulled the colors from CJ's Hank sprite originally just for Ferdinand, then added the color scheme to Bash and Dash, then Lexi, and then made an OC..... Not gonna lie, that's how I normally create sprites. Yeah. Anyways, thanks again, and stay tuned, I'm making more pieces of my own universe for Thomas! ~ Afro

An OC I made up. She's the only actual British designed member of the current fleet. She was created to give Lexi another female counterpart in the company's fleet. Another experimental engine so to speak. ~ Afro

Thanks! I've been wanting to use UltraLoco's base engines for a while, and Stacy ended up fitting the concept of a locomotive that was an experiment for the company! I'm glad to hear that you like her design, I was afraid that it wasn't good enough, honestly! ;)
