Gordon Goes Foreign was an episode planned for the second series of the television series, but it was cancelled due to budget complications. It was to be based on a story of the same name from the book The Eight Famous Engines.


After an argument with a big city engine over what the name of a station on the Other Railway is, Gordon is determined to find out.




  • If this episode had been filmed, the Big City Engine would have been made using a modified version of Henry's or Douglas' Gauge 1 model with a new face mask and smoke deflectors.
  • Despite this episode being cancelled, its events are referenced by Gordon and Henry in the twenty-fourth series double-length episode, Thomas and the Royal Engine.
  • If this episode had been filmed, it would have been the only episode to feature the Big City Engine.
