I was wondering why the chose the name "Shane", IMHO Bruce would have been more appropriate.
John Draper has just posted on FB a great cartoon showing 520 and Thomas buddying up and 3801, R761 and H220 looking very miffed.
Was 520 named after a famous aussie .
Mr Warne ??
As to the naming, well who knows what goes on in the minds of the British production crew.
In the news poll (see link posted by poxbox3030) Warne on gained 9% of the vote for who should voice the character, well behind Hugh Jackman at 35% and Shane Jacobson at 34.7%
Personally I'd prefer the name Dean because Dean Harvey was one of the men behind preserving 520 in the first place.
Also Malcolm would be appropriate as 520 is named Sir Malcolm Barclay Harvey
12CSVT Why is it people instantly jump to the conclusion that the image has been stolen? or that Steamranger (ARHS - SA Division) where not involved in the selection?
In all, this is quite a coup for Steamranger
