My head canon is that the black circles on the red part are the eyes. The “tank engine” part on top is camouflage or an angler’s light to draw in unsuspecting children.
You'll choo too, you'll choo too
-Edit-You'll choo too
Jesus Christ lol

EDIT: Okay after hundreds of inbox notifications, silver, gold and platinum... Just take it. You can have it. I cant keep up, lol. I'm happy you're happy.
I imagine the creature can push air through the “tank engine” part’s mouth to make Thomas groan and exhale, kind of like a whale’s blowhole.
The creature can’t speak our language and wouldn’t have the dexterity to form words with Thomas’s mouth, but Thomas’s strange utterances are enough for the child to move closer to see what Thomas is trying to say before realizing something is wrong.
I thought Blaine was the pain
You choo choo choose me?
lays on alter
Or it can mimic human speech just enough to lure people in, like that bear from Annihilation.
I've got a choo-choo just for you,
He's painted pretty, red and blue.
He'd love to come and play all day,
He'd love to waste the time away,
He'd love to play all through the night,
He'll be here to say 'goodnight'.
Thomas was very cross with HP Lovecraft, so he decided to venture into the dream world to terrify humanity.
That's when the Fat Controller arrived.
"I'm very cross with you Thomas! You've caused confusion and delay!"
Now if we could get a nursery rhyme to go with it
Pain pain pain pain, pain pain pain. Pain, pain pain pain "pain pain" pain. Pain. Pain. Pain, pain pain pain. Pain. Pain pain pain pain, pain pain pain. Pain, pain pain pain "pain pain" pain. Pain. Pain. Pain, pain pain pain: Pain. La la la la la.
and that is the truth.
Why did you do this to us?
And more importantly, why did you do this to yourself?
Blaine is a pain, and that is the truth
This is it
i should've just gone to bed.
Forreal fuck that bear. Jesus Christ.
Don’t ask him silly questions, he won’t play silly games.
Bullets don't work, Jon.
oh my god no
The revised terms of the company healthcare coverage don't look too promising.
Thanks I hate it
Oh man, holy shit, I've just crossed that sad bit in the last book (after they help the Breakers). Holy fuck, King is an emotionless bastard.
Roland's eyes blazed with such wild blue fire that Eddie shrank away from him. Dimly, he heard Jake and Susannah gasp. "Kill if you will, but command me nothing!" the gunslinger roared. "You have forgotten the faces of those who made you! Now either kill us or be silent and listen to me, Roland of Gilead, son of Steven, gunslinger, and lord of the ancient lands! I have not come across all the miles and all the years to listen to your childish prating! Do you understand? Now you will listen to ME!"
Long days and pleasant nights.
The perfect amount of cutesy and sinister.
They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight
Spider legs of rage and hate
Black and red and grey and blue
They exist to torture you
The Fat Controller He Controls Things!
Reminds me of this picture.
"Give me all your bee syrup now!"
That was the creepiest scene I have seen in a very long time.
Or an /sub/scp.
Has anyone here read the dark towers series by Stephen King? This is reminding me of Charlie the Choo Choo/Blaine the Mono. There's a little rhyme that goes with the train's story, too.
“Don't ask me silly questions I won't play silly games I'm just a simple choo choo train And I'll always be the same. I only want to race along Beneath the bright blue sky And be a happy choo choo train Until the day I die.”
This is the third reference to Annihilation I've seen in the last 2 days. Shits getting weird. I'm gonna have to watch it before things get out of hand.
Christ alive that was so fucking eerie.
Blaine is a pain
If anyone wants
Cool, I didn’t want to sleep tonight anyway
May you have twice the number
wow this is hella dark yo
Like a Basilisk in Dark souls!
Chew chew motherfuckers.
Fuck sakes lol
I say thankee
They're two they're four they're six and eight
Giving kids one last playdate.
Blood and guts and black and blue
His eyes are fixed upon you.
A friendly smile brings in prey,
up he springs to end your days.
Straight from a Dark Souls dungeon-
Thomas the Pain Engine.
Fearing death the kids all run.
"But children, aren't we having fun?"
His creaky voice more rust than chime,
a killer in his utmost prime.
Looking for a life to snuff,
any child is enough.
From the shadows, his claws ensnare.
Goodnight children, please take care-
Thomas could be anywhere.
You ain't seen nothing yet.
It was creepiest scene I’ve ever seen, period. Thought I was going to see a smart, Sci-Fi Triller - my God that was a horror movie!
Fuck I gotta read dark tower now don't I
Bless the Internet
I woke up in a dark forest. But the tree trunks weren't trees, they where legs. A distant train whistle blows
We need a creepypasta about this quickly!!
The Dark Tower series, specifically - the last volume called The Dark Tower.
OP, could you do fat controller next?
I cam here to say this. Thankee sai.
Ka is a wheel
You haven't truly lived until you have read The Dark Tower.
The internet has received a blessing
All aboard the pain train!
You can sing this to the Thomas theme song and it's horrifying
Those fuckers are creeeepy, especially when you realize the big inflatable balloon eyes aren't actually its eyes.
Actually, they freaked me out less. They seemed less like “Great googly moogly wtf” and more “not these fucking lizards again”
Unexpected? All things serve The Beam.
Came to the comments for this section exactly. (Taps throat three times)
Pretty sure that's made by Chris (Simpsons artist). He's an absolute legend. All of his work somehow manages to be equal parts funny and creepy.
Tell me a riddle.
Cannot unsee =/
Noooooooooooooooooooo starts sobbing
I thought those were the nipples.
Its so, sososososo good.
Someone needs to make this into an animation and post it into /sub/gifs.
The Rains Of Thomasatmere
A coat of blue, a coat of red
A track still has rails
And strong and new and oiled, my Lord As strong and oiled as yours
And so he horned, and so he horned That Train of Castamere
And now the dead weep o'er his rails
With no one there to hear
Yes, now the dead weep o'er his rails
And not a train to hear
Thanks. I hate it.
I appreciate you
You forgot the balls
You have heard of Thomas the Dank Engine.
Meet Thomas the Dark Engine...
Many SCP stories have monster like this.
Long days and pleaseant nights
WTF did I just see?
Well Blaine appears at the end of book 3, the Wastelands - he’s a suicidal train/AI that loves riddles and holds the KA-Tet (think Fellowship) hostage until they can tell him one he can’t solve. That sequence which, if I remember correctly bridges books 3 and 4, is awesome.
With revisions for meter:
They're two they're four; they're six and eight, and they give kids one last play-date. Red blood and guts and black and blue, his beady eyes are fixed on you.
A friendly smile brings in prey, and up he springs to end your days. He's straight from a Dark Souls dungeon— Here is Thomas the Pain Engine.
Fearing death, all the children run. "But kids, aren't we having fun?" His creaky voice more rust than chime— a killer in his utmost prime.
Looking for any life to snuff; the smallest child is enough. From the shadows, his claws ensnare. Goodnight children, but please take care—
Thomas could be anywhere.
