Thomas & Friends return with six new adventures which feature everyone's favourite engines as they go about their work on the Island of Sodor.


Join Thomas and his friends on new adventures on Sodor. This time we get to meet the new engine Molly, we get to see when Emily wants to be a queen for a day at the old castle, and we'll see the golden eagle with Thomas.



  1. Molly's Special Special * - Molly is a new engine on the island and is given the job of taking empty trucks back to the coaling plant. Molly is unhappy because she wants to take full trucks like a really useful engine. But after an embarrassing mishap Molly and the other engines learn that empty trucks are important too.
  2. Respect for Gordon * - When Gordon's firebox develops a rattle, the other engines tease him but when they have to do Gordon's work, they find it's a lot hard then they thought. They realise that they miss Gordon - even his rattle. Gordon realises that without his friends, his passengers would be stuck.
  3. Emily Knows Best ** - Emily is taking passengers to the ruined castle when she decides that she will be queen for a day. Toby doesn't think Emily could be queen. And when Emily gives Percy some advice on his troublesome trucks which has disastrous results, she realises that being Queen is harder than she thought.
  4. Saving Edward * - When Edward starts wheezing and leaking steam, he doesn't want Sir Topham to find out in case he has to be scrapped. And when Thomas offers to do an important job for him, Sir Topham notices and sends Edward straight to the fitter's yard for repairs.
  5. Rheneas and the Dinosaur * - When some important dinosaur bones are discovered, Mr. Percival (the Thin Controller) needs to transport them to the Transfer Yards. He lets Rheneas take the bones on his own but they are too heavy for one engine. So his friend Skarloey helps carry the flatbed to the Transfer Yards with Rheneas - just in time to be photographed with the dinosaur.
  6. Thomas and the Golden Eagle ** - A golden eagle has been spotted on Sodor. Thomas and Percy are both desperate to see it and agree to help each other with their work, but poor Percy ends up doing all of Thomas' work! Thomas is still looking for the eagle when he suddenly remembers Percy and races back to take Percy's milk to the dairy as quickly as he can.

US Bonus Features


  • Gordon's rear bogie on the DVD menu is separated from the chassis, just like his pre-Magic Railroad model.
  • The US front cover also uses a promotional image of Thomas from Thomas and the Magic Railroad on the top left.
  • Some of the pictures from Gordon's Gallery are from Best Dressed Engine, Harvey to the Rescue, James and the Queen of Sodor, Thomas and the Firework Display, Gordon Takes Charge, Thomas Tries His Best and Thomas Gets it Right.
  • The US DVD Games are in widescreen.
  • Percy's theme in the Percy's Favorite Things Game is sped up and at a higher pitch.
  • In the 2007 UK menu selections, music is played in every selection with the sounds being heard:
    • The first episode selection plays music from the beginning of Emily Knows Best.
    • The second episode selection plays the full theme of the Welcome to the Island of Sodor opening.
    • The extras selection plays a minute of the song, "Buffer Up and Share".
  • When the DVD was first released at Walmart, it often came with a free Take Along caboose with the store's logo.
  • This is the last DVD for a few things:
    • The last UK DVD to have the 1997 HiT Entertainment logo at the start.
    • The last DVD to have animations in the menus as well as the last newly released DVD to have the characters interact with the audience on the menus.
    • The last US DVD to have the 2001-2006 HiT Entertainment logo.
  • Originally, the US DVD was going to have HiT Extras on it, but for some unknown reasons, the DVD did not have any of them.
    • It could be possible that the reason was that HiT Entertainment had a US distribution deal with 20th Century Fox in 2006 and they did not have enough time to add HiT Extras before the DVD's US release in September 2006.
  • This release was going to be produced for VHS on the same day as the DVD in the United States, but it was cancelled due to the fact that major American studios stopped producing VHS tapes.
  • On the Lionsgate rerelease of this DVD, the Lionsgate and HiT entertainment logos do not show up after the Thomas & Friends Website Screen and goes straight to the trailers.


  • The DVD cover shows Thomas' head lamp floating between Gordon and Percy. This is because the image of the engines lined up is an edited promotional image from Calling All Engines!.
  • In the DVD menu, Gordon's red lining is not lined up properly.
  • The runtime on the back cover of the Australian DVD said it was 60 minutes.
  • The US iTunes, Starz uploads and Hulu use the UK narration.
  • In the UK end credits, "Video" is misspelled as "Vidoe."
  • On the 2007 UK episode selection screen, Molly's Special Special uses scenes from the opening instead of the episode.
  • On some of the 2009 rereleases of this DVD, a bonus episode of Roary the Racing Car is shown after the program.
  • In the UK DVD:
    • Buffer Up and Share is named Togetherness.
    • Engine Roll Call is named "The Really Useful Crew."
