Let me interpret the daily fail speak. Basically in this story, Thomas goes on a world tour and meets different engines around the world. Some of whom are female. Which you’d kind of expect really.

Apart from making it less of a “boys only” series it does give them a great excuse to introduce all sorts of very different engines to the stories and makes the TtTE world very much a Rule 1 layout :)

I don't think late Rev. knows what he started!

The international flavour would probably meet with his approval, though.
