CRWS No. 2- Gordon and the Great Race (Part 3)
Chapter 3: Streamliners and Sneaky Diesels
 All the while, the two engines talked about their adventures and their countries.   Axel began to tell Gordon of his driver’s favorite story, “Murder on the Orient Express”, one of many books about a Belgian detective name Poirot. Gordon shuttered. He didn’t like the idea. “My driver is more of a Sherlock person himself, I believe.” He retorted. “I’d rather not even think of the idea of their being a murder on an express train.” But he respected Axel’s opinion.
    Gordon being to tell Axel about his adventures to the mainland. Axel was impressed. “Per ‘aps you should come and zee Belgium in all eet’s glory one day!” Gordon loved the idea. ‘A World Tour!’ he thought to himself. ‘If Flying Scotsman can visit other countries, then so can I!’ This filled him with determination, and he raced headlong to the station, with

Chapter 2: Unexpected Company
    Gordon was still fuming on his way back to Crovan’s Gate. He was cross when he reached Crosby, and  crosser still when he reached Wellsworth. Edward took noticed and asked what was wrong. Gordon explained.
    Edward tried to cheer him up. “Don’t let them get to you, Gordon. You’re still the fastest on the Island!”
    “Not with Spencer’s constant visits, I’m not!” he groaned miserably. “His record is is 112! Mine is just 90!”
    “Well, it’s not quite fair to either of you to be making comparisons. He is streamlined after all and not the same as you and Flying Scotsman.
    “Streamlined…” pondered Gordon. “Hm...I wonder…”
    It was time for Gordon to leave with the express. This time, he had to take passengers to the docks. As he raced through the countryside, he kept thinki

Foreward:
Dear Readers,
    You may remember the Great Race, an animated special depicting a sort of Olympic-esque event for engines- the Great Railway Show of 1995. However, the events depicted in the animated special were not all accurate. There were was a different  engine left behind, and no unrealistic bridge jumps, ridiculously oversized crates covering up buffers and couplings or any standard gauge engines that should not have been standard gauge. However, Sodor did have some competitors at the Railway Show, including Gordon the Big Engine. He was determined to enter and steal the title of The World’s Most Famous Engine from his younger brother, the Flying Scotsman. But not everything went according to plan. These stories will tell you what actually happened to Gordon, Diesel, and the other engines of Sodor who came to the Great Railway Show. Enjoy!  –The Author

CRWS No 1: Culdee Fell's Engines- Part 4
Chapter 4: Rebirth of the Mountain King.
    Many years passed, and many things had changed on the Island of Sodor. Technology developed further, and more and more citizens and staff members now had mobile phones. A new quarry had opened nearby the defunct Boulder Quarry, and, when the Claypits were closed for the winter, Bill and Ben would work there under the supervision of Mavis while Toby ran the Anopha and Ffarquhar Quarry.
    And on the Culdee Fell Railway, brand new diesel engines engines had been acquired from the late 1980’s to the early 2000’s. They were an odd shape, with their engines exposed to the open air for easy access for repairs. No. 9 was named Percival, after the assistant manager of the Culdee Fell and Skarloey Railways. No. 10 was named by a school in Peel Godred after the railway ran a contest on the island. They named it Brenin, after the mythical figure in the Welsh mountains, the Brenin Llwyd. No. 11 was named Machan, after th

CRWS No 1: Culdee Fell's Engines- Part 3
Chapter 3: The Winds of Change
    Accidents were now uncommon on the Culdee Fell Railway due to the diligent upkeep of the track. But even so, every now and again something would go wrong. A few years after the reopening of the line, the railway brought in sort of new rolling stock. Only it wasn’t for the engines; it was for the workmen. These were specialized planks that the workmen would use to get themselves and their tools back down the line without having to get back into The Truck. These were called Devil’s Shingles. The other workmen thought it was a silly name, and often joked about it.
 
  “Did you hear about the new Devil’s Shingles being used up the line?” said one.
   
  “Yes!” said another. “The Devil’s Back’s got shingles now!” he laughed.
  “Must be terribly painful and itchy to have those things crawling all over you!” a third one remarked.

CRWS No 1: Culdee Fell's Engines- Part 2
Chapter 2: Down but not Out
    After Godred’s accident, it was decided by the railway board to place him at the back of the shed for static display. They couldn’t afford to send him back to Switzerland for repairs, nor have him repaired on the Mainland.
    “I’m sorry, Godred”, said the manager,” but we’ve no money to spare to repair you- we must repair the tracks up the line and prepare for our grand reopening next year.”
    So the workmen left him there in the back of the shed. The other engines didn’t want to talk to him at first. They thought of him as being a big disgrace to the railway. But as time went on, the other engines gradually opened up to him. Culdee of course was the first to do so. Despite Godred’s flaws and accident, Culdee thought of him as being a friend. He would tell Godred of the day’s events and the ongoing trackwork, and Godred would confide to him about the nightm

Book 1: Culdee Fell’s Engines
Foreward:
    Dear Readers,
    You may remember the story of Godred as told by Culdee in Mountain Engines, and its ending stating that Culdee had made the story up. It has long since become evident that he was in fact telling the truth, but that Author had said it was made up to avoid upsetting his readers over the subject of an engine’s untimely demise. Well, new information has recently come to light that brings to mind Duke’s stories of MSR’s engines- both No. 2 at different points in time – being converted to static machines helping to keep pieces of the railway running. We’ve now found out that poor Godred was in fact, subjected to a similar fate, but rather than being abandoned entirely, was recovered later on, and even brought back into service, with a brand new positive attitude. These stories tell you how it all happened- from the accident to now. I hope you wil

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

Hello, all. It's been a while. I figured it was only appropriate to update you all.

Currently, I am on a massive hiatus. My life is very hectic right now. First off, I'm wrapping up uni after 8 years and to be walking at graduation in about 25 or so days.

Secondly, and this is also related to that, but my laptop is on the verge of death. I did my best to try and recover/backup needed content. Haven't had time for it lately. All I have to work on both assignments and stories is my phone. Very difficult, especially with my memory issues being rather hard to deal with this semester.

Third, also related, I'm saving for a new laptop. Once I have it, I'll need to install TANE and transfer/upgrade my dying cdp archives. After that, screenshots will resume and it will be much easier to complete my written works.

Thank you for your patience.

Yikes. Haven't updated this in a long time.

Amateur graphic designer. Trainz TTTE user and Gmod player. Also interested in Dragon Ball, Legend of Zelda and many other shows and games. Have two trans best friends. Not sure what else to say, aside from this:

If I've ever done something to bother you, please, fucking TELL me. How the fuck am I supposed to improve myself as a person if I don't know what my mistakes are?! So don't keep that shit bottled up. Tell me what I've done wrong. I don't understand what is so hard about that.
