Tales of the LNWR is the name of the television series reboot based on the Railway Series by the Reverend W. Awdry and the original television series by Britt Allcroft. It was adapted for television by George Ignatchenko. The series is due to start airing in April 2020.


'Tales of the LNWR' is about Thomas, Edward, George and other engines.


In 2008/9, George Ignatchenko gained his love for Thomas. He had been making a TV show as far as he remembers. In 2015, he tried making a show of remakes, which was eventually scrapped. In 2016, he tried another attempt at a series, with the pilot episode in mind, 'Thomas's Story', which was also scrapped. In 2018, he had 'The Pilot Series' in mindm which was scrapped. Then, in 2019, he finally decided to accomplish his target. With the correct equipment and setting, the filming for the newest film, The Adventures of Thomas the Tank Engine, plus the series itself. It is comfirmed that it will be filmed using Thomas & Friends merchandise and LEGO and more. It is likely that filming would start for both the series and the film in October 2019.

  • Season 5 is the shortest season of the entire series.
  • 2023 is the first year without a season of TOTLNWR. Instead there was a spin-off series about before and after Thomas's arrival. 2028 was the second.
  • This series is set in an alternate universe of Thomas & Friends, so the North Western Railway timeline is different. [See Sodor Railway Timeline here: North Western Railway (SFS version)/Timeline.
