The Railway Series meets the TV Series again on DVD

Japan is celebrating the Centenary of the Rev. W. Awdry with another DVD release on the comparison between The Railway Series and the TV stories.

Thomas is Full Time! or トーマスの きかしゃがっぱい incorporates four episodes with it's retrospective Railway Series origins to watch side by side.

Three of the TV shows come from the 1984 First Season with the last fast forwarding up to the Fourth Season in 1995.
Episodes include;
おおきなきかんしゃとてんしゃだい (Off the Rails)
きたないきかんしゃ (Dirty Objects)
フライング・キッパー (The Flying Kipper)
なつかしのわがや (Home at Last)

Not so very long ago in 2010, the Japanese made a similar release dedicated to the 65th year of the popular Awdry book franchise.

トーマスの きかんしゃがいっぱい! is available to buy in Japanese stores.

  1. If I can import it and watch it on a region free DVD player... then yes.
