Gordon Goes Foreign was an episode planned for the second series that was cancelled due to budgetary restraints. It was to be based on the story of the same name from the Railway Series book The Eight Famous Engines.


After arguing with a foreign engine over what the name of the 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 model with a new face mask and smoke deflectors.
  • Despite this episode being cancelled, a reference to it is made in the twenty-fourth series double-length episode Thomas and the Royal Engine.
