    Before you say there is already a thread for this, I asked in Thread Check.

    Overrated: Duck. Before you throw rotten vegetables at me, I would like to explain. Don't get me wrong, I like Duck but when Emily took over, you moan "When can Duck come back?" Duck's great, but since he hardly said anything in S6-7, you moan too.

    Underrated: Emily. What is everyone complaining about her, her new personality is much better than her old one. She's humourous too.

    The thing is, Duck was the only engine that stuck a potato in Gordon, James, and Henry's funnels! They loved that! Emily, however, has gone from kind and delicate to rough and rude in the space of one season! We never got used to her either.

    I know people groan a lot about charecters, but Duck has been a well loved charecter and Emily stole his spot. And he new personality makes her a cow! And Duck was in Navigation so he might come back

    Hangon one miute,guys. I don't want us all to get into a huge arguement, but who says we would have still seen Duck appear even if Emily hadn't been introuduced? Even if Emily didn'tcome into the show, we might be still saying 'Duck hasn't appeared since season seven! I want Duck back!'

    We are discussing your post, which is a good idea, otherwise this tread is useless if we can't discuss peoples opinions. I will post mine soon, and Emily looks like she will make an alliance with Whiff and possibly Diesel from EATSC

    I know, but she is an absolute cow and actually ruins what the soccer mums want

    Ah well. I'm still all for our favorite pannier tank engine's return! Emily is either being manipulated by HiT or is extremely bipolar. Which do you think is true? Seriously though, I think Rosie is being overrated. Every forum I see, it has Rosie here, Rosie there, everywhere! Give it a rest!

    OldBlueEngine: She may be, but no other characters act like a 'cow'. Her stubborn, bossy, b*tchy personality is like no other- so it deserves some recognition. Duck, however, apart from being smart, was only GWR patriotic and witty. I agree that both should deserve a chance to share the spotlight, as both are equally unique.

    Anyway:

    Overrated: Thomas. I think we know why.

    Underrated: The Pack. I've heard people flame these guys but IMO they add a diversity and sense of realism on the Island and it's expansion. Also with the unique prototypes and differing personalities, what can go wrong? I reckon they deserve more air time to further develop.

    I agree with Salty on the subject of Thomas. Edward, Gordon, Henry, and two spiteful engines on trial from the other railway were the first to be seen and written about. The two spites were only numbered, so I can't recall their exact addressments.

    I think Emily, Molly, and Rosie should be together. I also think that Duck should return to tidmouth, and have another shed for like Arthur, Dennis, Neville, and so on...

    Diesel without Duck is like a new pencil: Pointless.

    Over-The Steam Team-They have had almost all the seasons. And Thomas and Edward stole Molly, Rocky, Dennis, Neville and Rosie's spotlight. And by the looks of it Emily will steal Whiff's.
    Under-DAB Stacks-When was the last time we saw them being evil and two members haven't been seen since season 9 and HiT's ruined Diesel, now don't get me wrong I mean I like him a bit as a nice guy, who knows maybe if Duck comes back, they'll be friends, wouldn't that be something.

    There is another shed- Knapford Sheds. It has been seen to host Murdoch, Arthur, Harvey, Salty and occasionally Emily. I'd like to think Neville, Molly and Rosie sleep there too. And if there's no room there, there's always Vicarstown Sheds (where Gordon went swimming ).
