Thomas The Tank Engine: Shed 17 is a 2015 web video made by Pauls Vids, and is a parody on both the Railway Series and Thomas & Friends.
This video is extremely scary and features many dark elements and violent injuries or deaths to many characters. It is not suitable for kids (Paul Vids made the video age-restricted for that very reason).
They were the stories that have charmed an entire generation. From the books to the television series, people around the world have grown up with the Railway Stories. But the truth behind Thomas and his friends is no childrens story. It is a story that begins in wartime Germany, and ends with a discovery that would change Thomas, and his friends, lives forever.

After the overwhelmengly popularity of Shed 17, Paul came up with the idea of making a sequel titled Thomas The Tank Engine: Project G-1. The first trailer was uploaded on February 28th, 2016 under the title "Very Early Teaser for Shed 17 Sequel.". Four months later, the second trailer, which was actually a sneak peek, was uploaded on July 29th of that same year. Two months after the third trailer was uploaded on FlyingPringle's channel under the title "Project G-1 Annie and Clarabel Teaser", Paul received too many complaints showing when is Project G-1 coming out. At that moment, Paul didn't yet announced a release date, so he decided to release teaser images on his Twitter account. On May 4th, 2018, the fourth trailer named "Project G-1 "The Island" Trailer" was uploaded on YouTube, but viewers keep receiving more complaints. On August 26th of that same year, Paul released an episode of The Adventures of Roly the Coach called Roly's Bad Day. But to fool the viewers, it was made as the final trailer of Project G-1 revealing that it will be released the 31st of that same month.
