Fallout 4 is Under Attack by Thomas the Tank Engine in New Mod

Toot, toot!


Fallout 4's mod scene has been picking up steam since the game's launch, and 2016 has been kind enough to give us Deathclaws that look a lot like Macho Man Randy Savage. Now, there's one that brings Thomas the Tank Engine to Boston's wasteland.

NexusMods user Trainwiz created a mod for Skyrim in 2013, which saw Thomas replace the snowy world's dragons. With the help of a friend, he created a similar mod for Fallout 4.

Trainwiz says that he sat near his fireplace, sipped tea, and ate a small animal while wondering why nobody had put Thomas the Tank Engine in Fallout 4 yet.

"I underwent a long, six-year journey of discovery," says Trainwiz. "After killing all my rivals and eating their hearts, I realized I could just ask a friend to port some meshes for me, and [I] made this abomination."

If you want to see Thomas inhabit The Commonwealth, you should know that he replaces several different models. All of the Deathclaws, missiles, mini-nukes, MIRV launchers, Vertibirds, and one of the Flight helmets transform into the friendly blue train (via Eurogamer). Unfortunately, he doesn't seem too friendly in Fallout 4 based on a video posted to Tranwiz's YouTube channel.

If you want to see more mods, GameSpot has compiled a gallery of the best Fallout 4 mods so far. If you just want to roam the wasteland with a lightsaber in hand, then there's a mod for you.
