Thomas and Friends: The All-New Railway Stories
T&F: A-NRWS (otherwise known as The Railway Series Evolution) is an adaptation of the Railway Series, featuring characters from the TV series, as well as a few new characters. The stories are mainly either mash-ups, rewrites, or original stories.

The Railway Series Evolution Books
BOOK 1: Emily the Stirling Single Engine
Almost a hundred years ago, an old engine was hidden in a siding surrounded by trees and bushes. She originally worked for the Sodor and Mainland Railway, and is based upon the Stirling Single of the Great Northern Railway. Who is she, and how did she resurface Sodor rails? Read on to find out...
BOOK 2: Bulleid's Unique Engines
All locomotives come in different shapes and sizes. Of course, they all have their flaws, and the designs of Oliver Bulleid are of no exception. Three of them were given their trials on the North Western Railway during 1951, a unique 0-6-6-0 Leader with a diesel outline, a single prototype 11001, and a 'Charlie' Q1 tender engine. Now, the Sodor engines were at first reluctant to accept them due to their differences, but that makes one special, right? In the end, all are great friends and these stories will tell you why.
BOOK 3: Belle the Mainline Tank Engine
In The Eight Famous Engines, the Fat Controller brought the North Western Railway's numbers 1 to 8 to England to prove they were real. Of course, many of us know their side of the story, but what happened while they were away has been overlooked and not written about. Gordon told me that the engine who took his place, Belle, had a lot to talk about. Belle told me about her conflicts with another engine, and I'm glad to say that this engine is still in service today on the Bluebell Railway. You can even find one of Belle's sisters there too. These are the stories of Belle's early days on Sodor.
BOOK 4: Diesel and the Mainline Engines
During the events of "Dirty Work", Diesel told the trucks that Duck said horrible things to Gordon, Henry and James. We all know that wasn't true, but we didn't know the whole story of their names "Galloping Sausage", "Old Square Wheels", and "Rusty Red Scrap-Iron". Now we know the whole story, and we also know how Diesel got sent away before Duck's accident with the barber shop.
I only hope Duck and the big engines aren't too upset...
BOOK 5: Little Western Engines
There are four untold stories about the Little Western branchline, dating back to 1989. When I spoke with Donald and Douglas, they told me about Duck's incidents during one week, an engine that Oliver found by accident, and even Toad's runaway!
All those stories were too good to waste, and I wanted to share them all with you. I just hope that Duck, Oliver, Douglas, and even Toad aren't too embarrassed...
BOOK 6: New Diesel Engines
After the events of Thomas and the Fat Controller's Engines, the Fat Controller managed to purchase four diesel shunters from British Railways to help in modernizing the Sodor Railway Network a little bit. A fifth was also built at the Steamworks, but for the five diesels, they got off to a shaky start with the other engines. James was quite annoyed when he found out I was to write about his encounter with Arry and Bert, as was Norman and his breakdown, but they were both too good a story to be left untold. Go and see for yourself!
BOOK 7: Ffarquhar Diesel Engines
Originally, I was going to call this book "Mavis the Quarry Diesel", but after hearing of the events from Daisy and Paxton, I decided it was better to change the title. There was a collision between a visiting diesel shunter named Andrew and a grocer's van, Paxton's daring rescue at Anopha Quarry, as well as a brilliant ideas Daisy and Mavis each had. Oh, and there's also an old friend of Thomas from the old days named Locke, now working like a really useful engine once more. I like Locke, and I hope you will too.
BOOK 8: Barry the Rescue Engine
Before Thomas and the Fat Controller's Engines, a book about another engine was meant to be written, but was set aside and never saw the light of day. Then I came in, and now some untold stories about the North Western Railway's no. 13 are written. He, of course, had his fair share of mishaps during his trails, as well as the rumors about him being unlucky. For instance, James... Well, you'll have to read the stories to find out for yourself.
BOOK 9: Ivo Hugh the Young Engine
In the book New Little Engine, the Skarloey Railway unveiled its new number seven, named after the former Chief Mechanical Engineer, Mr. Hugh. However, with the death of the Thin Clergyman, we never knew about Ivo Hugh's early life on the Skarloey Railway, until I came along. Like any new engine, Ivo Hugh had adventures of his own, like his first passenger run and a very shocking discovery of an engine who used to work at Balladwail Quarry. Ivo Hugh suggested I include one of Sir Handel's misadventures with the snow. I'm sure Sir Handel will be cross if he knows, but he's been too cocky lately, so it should serve him right!
BOOK 10: Thomas and the Mainline Engines
In the first illustration of The Three Railway Engines, there were three other engines along with Edward, Gordon, and Henry, who did not have names, or a story to themselves.
That was where I came in, and asked the three engines who they were. They were Alfred, Cecil, and Kirk, all three no longer servicing on Sodor.
Thomas also told me about the very first electric engine on Sodor, known as Vincent, and insisted I put the story in. So, Thomas, Edward, Henry, and Gordon, this one's for you four!
BOOK 11: Molly the Yellow Engine
I spoke with a Claud Hamilton locomotive, who was named Molly, and I asked her to tell me of her first few months of service on the North Western Railway.
"What did you do during your early Sodor days?" I asked.
"There were a few exciting events," she said, "helping Henry out with Rocky, when I took Gordon's express..."
"What about James' near miss with a tree?" I added.
Molly giggled. "I don't think he'll be happy if it's in your next book," she said, "but then again, it might serve him right!"
BOOK 12: Adventurous Little Engines
Life on the Skarloey Railway is far from dull. After the events of Ivo Hugh's early days in 1997, around the Thin Clergyman's death, little changes have been seen other than Peter Sam's return from the Talyllyn Railway. The stories I was told from around the turn of the century were quite interesting, such as the whole story of Balladwail Quarry being closed down, as well as three old friends of Sir Handel and Peter Sam, those being Mighty and Mac the Fairlie brothers, as well as Monique from the Mid-Sodor Railway. Even Duncan's spook near the bridge was too good a story to waste; see for yourself!

Other Stories and Series I'm Working On
Besides Thomas and Friends: The Railway Series Evolution and My Little Pony: Royals, Friends and Lovers, there are other stories and/or series of stories I work on occasionally:
North Western Engines, Long Ago (Thomas the Tank Engine - General, Rated K/K-plus) - Before the first Railway Series book, Thomas and Edward worked with many other engines including Marianne (MR 156 no. 158A), Samantha (MR 115 no. 673), Alexandra (MR 1000 no. 1000), Geoff (MR 2000 no. 2040), Phillip (MR 1116A), Simon (MR 1377 no. 41708), Bridget (MR 3835 no. 43924), Alfred (98462), Cecil (87546), and the engines of the Tidmouth, Wellsworth and Suddery Railway. This series describes the build up from 1915 to 1921, from World War I to Henry's arrival. CURRENT STATUS - Indefinite hiatus.
Adventures on Sodor (Thomas the Tank Engine - Family/Drama, Rated T/M) - Human series. As a baby, Thomas Billinton was abandoned by his mother for his safety, and has been under the care of railway porter Edward Pettigrew and his wife Marianne from March 1968, when Britain's railways abolished steam in its final days. As he grows older, Thomas meets new people, learns of stories from the past, plays his first guitar, and forms a band. During all this, the mysterious Count Palo vows to have him killed because of family blood to his birth parents Robert "Payne" and Marie Billinton, and his sister Zoey. CURRENT STATUS - Indefinite hiatus.
Tales from Free Country USA (Homestar Runner - Humor/Friendship, Rated K-plus/T) - Reboot from the original cartoon. After the defeat of Deep Claw, life in Free Country USA returned to normal for Homestar Runner Jr. and his friends and family. After the town's 150th anniversary, they have many tales to tell while the website was inactive. CURRENT STATUS - indefinite hiatus; will begin when Homestar and Son is complete.
As you can guess, I enjoy writing stories with mature themes.
Other than what I'm working on, I may do the occasional one-shot or FL story. I also plan to do a Mortal Kombat fan series about the characters in college, and a Tokyo Mew Mew fan series set after the attacks of the Saint Rose Crusaders featuring Zakuro/Renee Roberts as the female protagonist. After North Western Engines, Long Ago is complete, I plan to write a sequel series about Thomas' early days on the branchline, set from 1923 to 1928/1929, about the extension from Elsbridge to Hackenbeck and Ffarquhar, and I may call it Thomas the Branchline Engine. I may have other ideas for the future, but wait and see for what I may have in store for my loyal watchers, readers, and reviewers! ;)
