DnD's JBS Pt 4: Free At Last
Free at Last
    Back at the Steelworks, Donald and Douglas looked around for anything unusual. They weren’t exactly sure what they were looking for though. There were already lots of unusual engines at the Steelworks; what more could there be?
    Then, Donald hatched an idea.
    “Aye, Donnie?”
    “Tha crane.”
    “Aye. Mebbe Beresford has seen somethin' it ay th' ordinary. he's a crane, efter aw, he can see th' whole yard an' beyond.”
   “Aye, guid idea, Donnie. Let's gang ask heem.”
    Beresford was a blue crane who worked in the yard. He used to work at the Canal with Frankie and had a long-standing working relationship with both Frankie and Hurricane. Hailing from the Birmington area, he spoke like many of the holiday makers-turned-locals there.

Donald and Douglas' JBS- Part 3
Donald and Douglas: Detective Engine Inspectors
    Donald and Douglas set straight to work, and found two rows of trucks full of slag to pull to another part of the Steelworks. Beside them was a third row, being hauled by Frankie who was humming cheerily to herself. The twins whistled hello.
    “Awrite thaur! ye main be 'at Frankie th' Garratt tauld us abit!”
    “Aye, that’s me. Well, sort of. My real name’s Arundel Castle. But I’ve got a load of nicknames. Frankie, Billie, Arundel Castle, Aru, Cassie; I’ll respond to nearly any name. It’s just who I am. Who are you two?”
    The twins responded together.
    “I'm Donald.”
    “Ain aam Dooglas.”
    “We're twins frae th' Islain ay Sodur, an' Hurricane's speart us tae help efter we gart a delivery haur.”
    “It’'s huir uv a queer thocht…”

Note: I've recently reorganized my gallery. Older works have gone into the old folders. Please don't comment or fave anything in the Old Trainz folders unless I have a copy of it in the New Trainz folder. There are very few shots I've previously taken that I'm currently satisfied with. Please do not comment on the old shots- it's too much of a hassle to go through them all and disable comments. Old ones that I am satisfied with however are being added to a new folder- those ones you can comment on.

My gallery is mainly based around my childhood; made of Thomas Trainz screenshots, episode adaptions and original works written by moi. I also have several pictures made with Garry's Mod and Team Fortress 2, as well as Gmod shots about MLP: FiM. I felt that my gallery needs to reflect more than just my interests from childhood. Very rarely I'll upload shots from my 3DS camera, self-portraits, traditional works or whatever else I feel like.

Journal History

Right then. DnD's JBS is done and up. Rushed the end a bit because I'm tired of working on it and want to move on to the next project.

I've talked about this before, but it's my take on BWBA. Much as I enjoyed the special, you know me, I like to do my own thing and write in a way to avoid the problems of the actual special.

I feel Flying Scotsman is a better fit for world travel than Thomas due to his prior experience and also his own equipment from his US tour. And with Flying Scotsman himself having recently spread the ashes of his savior Mr. Alan Pegler, I feel now more than ever that I want to do this.

Here's a quick rundown of what to expect:

Scotsman's personality and strength will circumvent problems in the movie that Thomas succumbed to- i.e. lack of strength, being sway insanely easily, having plenty of water, etc. For 80% of the story, he will be in US configuration to comply with other railways' regulations regarding lamps and cowcatchers.

Nia will NOT be happy go lucky and be more of a tragic depressed character. I want to depict her in a light that's realistic and not stereotypical. Her homelessness will be touched upon sooner rather than later and give her the excuse to be Scotsman's cohort throughout the story.

There will be no gags of TFC due to the wiser use of Scotsman instead.

While Scotsman is away, Rebecca will take over his duties. There will also be "meanwhile on Sodor" moments to tie a take on Season 22 into the special. Edward will go to Wellsworth, leaving a space in Tidmouth Sheds. Phillip will NOT be there at Wellsworth but at the Peel branch. Henry will not leave until Scotsman returns, and will have proper reasoning. I feel that while the moving of said engines is controversial, with the right explainations they are acceptable moves.

Nia may be out of steam when the two journey to America, due to Nia not having the proper equipment.

America will not be limited to what was seen in the special and explore more of the vast country, and upon visiting the east coast, Flying Scotsman will discover a distant relative and friendly rival: The Flying Yankee- based on a real engine and train service.

As Scotsman is NOT easily swayed, he will not take an alternate path to get Ace to the race and thus piss off Nia. Instead he will be taken to a repair shop and he will have been dropped out from his race. Serves him right.

As a result of THAT as well, China will NOT be a locale in Scotsman's World Tour. Appropriately replacing it instead is Australia, where Scotsman will mostly return to his UK configuration.

I will come up with an excuse to stick with UK rolling stock in other countries, as the Flying Scotsman models I have installed for illustrative purposes do not have knuckle couplers on the water tender. I can't model myself nor have the time/money to commission such a tender from anyone for either the RWS or CGI models I'll be utilizing for illustrative purposes.

Returnees from TGR will probably, hopefully have more lines. Sam conveniently was in my take on TGR, so his will be a no brainer. Raul will likely appear with his twin from BWBA- whom I've aptly named Sporticus after the Lazy Town character as a tribute to said show.

Beau will be called Tex due to the closest model I have to him being called Texas, and have a breakdown. No idea if I'll make him a crazy old geezer or not though.

The Arizona Diesel will be more appropriately based on one shape and color wise. Will not appear in uploaded shots though.

To my knowledge, I will not be integrating any Season 22 elements into the plot, Rebecca aside. Mainly because I'm not using China, and also because India is broad gauged, and Ashima is narrow gauge in my version of events. I may send Yong Bao to America for a bit, as I know a couple of Chinese engines were sent here years ago and "Americanized", so I could throw in Yong Bao, being there on a visit to see some old friends.

Made some slight updates, mostly for consistency in terms of paragraph structure, to my first CRWS book. Also floating the idea again of a name change for Godred Mk-II/Red Godred/Redgod.

The fact that you blocked someone just because they commented on one of your old posts

thats a MAJOR dick move

Excuse me, but what?

I have a terrible memory. Please, feel free to refresh it.

On a related note, I don't really want my old content getting attention, but I have so much of it that it's too much of a hassle to disable commentary and faves on them all. That's why I ask people not to. But unfortunately, people don't listen. They don't check my gallery first; they just find my old crap at random, don't pay attention to when it was made, and honestly, it bothers me. But like I said, I have a bad memory, and don't remember blocking anyone for it, at least not recently. I have a lot going on in my life outside of DA, which is why I'm inactive.

I'm going to hazard a guess that they sent you forward for a bit of white-knighting; that's the vibe I'm getting from this seemingly hostile comment I've found when doing a brief check on my notifs after a stressful couple of weeks dealing with a grandparent with stage 3 Alzhiemer's.

Aaaaah you're welcome! I had no idea you had a DA page until just then!

That was due to what's being referred to as "The Great Jimdo Purge." Inactive sites that have not been logged into for years have been wiped out, unless said owners log back in finally. Some sites have not been affected, such as Sudrian Community, other have, such as Sodor Railroading Builders and The Whistle Works, but NicTrain123 recently logged back into those sites and brought them back, even if their quality is a bit lackluster compared to modern sites. Sadly SI3D Classic was also swept up in the purge.

In order to access those sites now, you will have to use the Wayback Machine.
