Thomas the Tank Engine gets multicultural female trains in equality overhaul
Metro ^ | September 1, 2018 | Kate Buck

Posted on 09/02/2018 8:18:51 AM PDT by EdnaMode

Thomas the Tank Engine has had a team of multicultural female trains join the Steam Team in an equality overhaul. The new series of the children’s animated show Thomas and Friends will see the beloved locomotive leave his home in Sodor to travel the world for the first time. Now called Thomas And Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!, the new series also marks the first collaboration between a children’s TV programme and the United Nations to promote the Sustainable Development Goals.

For the first time Thomas will discover new countries and cultures by travelling to China, India and Australia.

The changes mark the biggest relaunch the brand has had in its 73-year history and were unveiled at a premiere at Bafta’s headquarters in London.

More proof that there is absolutely nothing that leftist “multiculturalism” can’t/won’t screw up and exploit.

Have you met Bruce, the gay train? He keeps bumping into the male trains in front of him.

Train out of order 5 days of every month.

Uncomfortable being repaired, unless in group.

Corrects passengers on their boarding technique —they’re ALL doing it wrong, have to do it the OTHER way

Wonders what passengers are thinking

Feels sure silent passengers secretly HATE the train
