The interactive game called Lift, Load and Haul! gives the player the chance to play as Cranky's arm to pick up a load, choose a suitable rolling stock and finishing off by picking the right track leading to a destination.
Six of Sodor's engines are playable involving three Steam Engines and three Diesel Engines. Depicted are Percy, Thomas and James, and Diesel, Den and Salty.
Rather than the use of the expected cartoonish designs, Lift, Load and Haul! steers away from this and utilizes specially commissioned moving animation stills by TV Series veterans, Nitrogen Studios.
Originally to have launched in late 2011 from its announcement back in October, the game has entered the fray quite late on, unknowingly.
Owing to his dedicational commitments within the TV Series, apps, games and others, recurring voice actor Keith Wickham narrates the interactive story.
Lift, Load & Haul! is now available to play on the Official Thomas & Friends Websites.
