Is there anything more likely to make an adventurer in Skyrim soil his armor than a distant, but drawing ever closer, dragon roar? How about a cheerful toot?
That’s what Polarexpresswiz, the mad genius behind the Really Useful Dragons mod thought. The mod replaces the dragons of Skyrim with Thomas the Tank Engine and other characters from Shining Time Station, the beloved, cheerful children’s show remembered for talking trains and giving Ringo Starr something to do in the late 80s as the live-action Mr. Conductor.
And after watching Thomas placidly descend from the sky and immolate an unfortunate Skyrim denizen, I’d have to agree. Sir Topham Hatt would be so very, very disappointed.
The mod adds new models, sounds (including the train whistle that will come to haunt your dreams), and some altered spell effects to better fit the experience of doing deadly battle with a colorful flying train.
Grab the mod at Polarexpresswiz’s Steam Workshop. Check out his other mods while you’re there, some of them also have a train theme.
