Ois894 (Oisín) is a YouTube user who joined the Community in May 2012 and has been active ever since. Although he had uploaded his first video in May he had talked to other TWR members previously on Twitter. He is 15 and collected TWR from Christmas '01 - '04 and then again from Autumn/Fall '11 - Present. Oisín is from Ireland, and is the first (and only) Irish TWR member. His YouTube account is now terminated, due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy against spam, deceptive practices and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.


Oisín began to enjoy Thomas & Friends again in 2010 after seeing an interview on BBC Breakfast with Christopher Awdry about the 65th Anniversary of the Railway Series. This inspired him to take his relatively small TWR collection down from the attic and use them again. He eventually found out that there are many other people who like TWR through the video sharing website YouTube. He began to watch videos by may users, most notably Rboffill and Keekre24 , among others. On 11 December 2011 Oisín made his first YouTube account: ois894. He mainly just watched videos and posted the odd comment.

It was when Oisín created his Twitter account (@cowseatbutter, now @Ois894 ) on 9 April 2012 that he 

started to become friends with many community members.He was persuaded by some members to upload videos, and eventually did so on 13 May, which was a review on his Rusty, filmed using his iPod. The iPod was only used for that video, moving on to a camcorder afterwards. Oisín's uploading schedule was highly inconsistent with no structure, often leaving many months gap either side of a single video. Oisín also worked with ThomasWRFan13 on the concept of the TWRC Thomas & the Magic Railroad Directors Cut, but it was cancelled due to ThomasWRFan13 leaving. Oisín also had plans for a series. It was due to be called the Untold Railway Stories and was meant to continue where the RWS left off. Only one short was uploaded and the idea was quickly archived until he could get his hands on a useful editing software other than Windows Movie Maker. When the 'Jack War' broke out Oisín was initially reluctant to take sides. He eventually chose the side that most other TWR users had chosen, reasoning that if neutral you would effectively have left the community until the conflict had finished. Sadly Oisín had to close the channel on 16 December 2012 because of a reason he has not yet disclosed. He had 30 subscribers at the time.

Series 1

On the same day Oisín closed his old account, he opened a new one, Ois894WR, and made a video entitled ‘Hello’ to reintroduce himself to the TWRC once again. He thought that with this new channel he would be able to create a more organised channel compared to his previous one, which he thought was rather messy. He had decided to take the new channel as a new start and none of his old videos have been re-uploaded. He had decided to produce his videos in blocks of twelve, usually consisting of an update video and ten reviews (This would make up the reviews series) as well as a special video separate from the normal reviews. On 19 December he uploaded a video (Reviews!, now 'Ois894's Wooden Reviews - Series 1 Update') detailing a list of what items will be reviewed and when. He started  these reviews on 6 January 2013 with a new review on Rusty. He uploaded another three videos over the next three days before taking two short breaks in between the next two videos. Oisín then did not upload another video until 10 March when he continued to upload the first set of reviews, finishing on 17 March. The full video list appears below:

On 19 May Oisín uploaded an update video for his second set of reviews. These items were chosen by followers on Twitter (mainly IvoHugh123 ). He has now adopted a regular uploading schedule of one video a week every Saturday. The special video uploaded as part of the Series 2 production block was a return of the ‘Evolution of...’ series. Evolution of Duck was uploaded on 25 May and the regular block started the following week. As the summer holidays began, Oisín decided to upload every other day.

Series 4


Ois894's Series 4 icon

Oisín began Series 4 in March 2014 with a video to celebrate him getting 100 Subscribers. However, the main series did not begin in full until July with his usual update video. In it he announced his plans for the summer which for the first time took on a different structure to any other series. He announced that the number of reviews wold decrease to 5 a series rather than the usual 10. To fill the remaining five spots he decided to take the Untold Railway Stories Shorts concept and expand it out into the main series. He originally planned for each short to be released on a Saturday with a review following on the Wednesday. This continued as planned until episode five when he went to Cornwall for a week and then went to the Gaeltacht for the rest of the summer so he was not able to film. In February 2015 he began uploading again but had to take a break due to exam pressure. He fully expects to upload the final four episodes of Series 4 before the end of June as these are already filmed and just need to be uploaded. The full video list (so far) appears below:
  1. 100 Subscribers! (9/3/14)
