Themes of Racial Superiority run through this book, but look at what happened to the Diesels in the end. I could not help but think this was a metaphor for the glory days of the British Empire. I suspect the views towards Diesels is a reflection of how the English saw India in the late 40's before Indian Independance.

I enjoyed this entry in the Thomas DVD adaptions series. The story was more action filled then most and the art was lovely. My annoyance at Awdry still receiving author credit still stands though.

Maybe it's because I'm not a "young boy ages 2-5," but I can't tell any of the trains apart, and I can't read any of their facial expressions.
