[[WMG: The Trains AI and their drivers are becoming more 'in-sync' as they go.]]
The drivers have slowly lost their agency and now only exist as part of a hive mind with their engine.
This is shown in 'The Lion of Sodor' where they fail to inform thomas at all and go through with every misinformed idea of taking care of the fictional lion.

* But then why would they run regular services? Also, the first book was published in 1945, only nine years before the 1954 Modernisation Plan of British Railways. Not exactly too long between them.

to:

* Well, yeah. '54 came around, The Fat Controller needed some engines, so he bought some.




to:

* Why not just fire their drivers? I'm sure you can import at least a couple drivers from the Mainland and be done with it. Railways are businesses, you know.

* Well, all of the episodes before Series 2 or 3 were Rev. Awdry's.

* It must suck being a spoon.

[[WMG: Ryan was going to help Sailor John in the original draft of Lost Treasure.]]
In the original draft of Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure, Ryan was going to have a much more different personality. He was going to be arrogant and cocky as opposed to the the nice engine we saw in the film. Another question we have about the film is "how does Sailor John get the pirate ship atop the hill?" The answer is this; Ryan pulled it there, at least in the script's original draft. Presumably the scenes of Ryan inviting Thomas into the shed were not in the original script. I'm assuming we would have seen Ryan buggering up on the branch line, causing Daisy to want to tear her bonnet out at him, giving her more of a role. Ryan would have messed up a passenger service, resulting in him being sent to run on the Arlesburgh-Harwick project, with Percy taking his work. Ryan would have been eager to prove himself, and as a result takes on some bad coal after volunteering to take dynamite. Thomas saves the day, and gets all the glory for it despite not doing so from the Fat Controller. However, as opposed to being thankful, the more antagonistic Ryan is jealous of Thomas. After the treasure is recovered by Marion, Ryan is sidelined yet again, and he begins to hate Thomas. After seeing that Thomas will not help him get his treasure back, Sailor John approaches Ryan with a job, which he is happy to accept if it will get Thomas in trouble. In the dark of night, Ryan steals the pirate ship and pulls it to the top of Gordon's Hill. However, he begins to feel guilty when he sees that John plans to harm anyone in his way. This results in the scene with him feeling guilty at Arlesburgh Junction; he's not heading to check on Thomas, he's returning home from helping John steal the ship. When Ryan sees the ship sailing down the line, in a panic he reverses. Ryan realizes what he did was wrong, and rushes into action, taking the rope and tipping over the ship. This is what causes Ryan to be rewarded the Arlesburgh-Harwick Branch Line, while Daisy manages the passengers to keep an eye on him. Ryan and Thomas now become friends, and Ryan is no longer as spiteful and jealous as he was before, although still a little cocky. This would have made for a much more complex Ryan, but I understand why they changed it.
