'Atlas proves himself to be a very reliant engine after he awoke. However, one particular engine happens to cross swords with him. However, when Mr Traverse interferes with his examination and leads him to get trapped in a dangerous tunnel with the heads of the railway, how will Atlas get out and into the light again?'
I like the idea of using Part 2 for trivia, fun facts or something from the Behind the Scenes side of things. Nice contrast with the context-y side of Part 1:
- I haven't the foggiest idea on which end the Class 14 Cojak should have his face on, or what constitutes 'the front'. I went with the end that had the exhaust grille, but if that's wrong, it kinda suits Cojak's character, as he more often than not speaks out of his behind. - The tunnel scenes were echoed in Audacity, before I realised that Sony Vegas actually had an audio preset to echo/reverb audio. Whaddaya know? I also learn more about both Vegas and Audacity, hence the experiments in animation and station tannoys. - The shots in the tunnel were filmed in my living room. In the dark. With candle lights. - The Waterdown Station set is my favourite, and gets a lot more coverage in the next few episodes. I recorded ahead of time, so hopefully I've got all I need, or else I will have to rebuild everything. Yikes. - More on Cojak. He was originally one of the first sets of characters in the series, and went by the same name. He was a Class 04 though, so he has definitely come along way. - In the first part, Clay mentions an engine called Creed. In a blink-and-you'll-miss it moment, Creed actually appears alongside Clay in Mr Traverse's flashback sequence. He's the one with the eyebrows. -It is only NOW that I realise that ONE, the entire series is named after a story from James and the Diesel Engines and TWO, this episode shares its name with a story from Thomas and The Twins, which was not intentional. Had I realised this sooner, I would have named the episode 'Tunnel Vision'* -Once again, the post-credit scene was an impulse thing, hence the stock footage. Following in the roots of Marvel films or something here. Will this be an ongoing thing? Hopefully.
