Will @flowingdata caption my 2 yr old’s first [accidental] chart with his #thomas trains?
How could I resist? You gotta get ’em while they’re young. I added the labels, mostly to show off my expansive knowledge of Thomas the
Train Tank Engine and Friends.
I misread the headline. I thought you were graphing the accidents that those engines always seem to have. I suspect their accident rate is much higher than most railroads around the world.
Something I learned from my 3-year-old grandson

Yeah, just showed this to my son, 4, who vehemently insisted it was Thomas the Tank Engine!
Is this an America/Rest of World difference again?
And the kids have it:
Also, if that is Ferdinand’s tender it should be labelled as wood instead of coal. Misty Island doesn’t have the technology to extract coal from the ground, but they somehow have the technology to dig a tunnel beneath the ocean linking them to the island of Sodor.
