FIN/SWE/NOR/NL/ROM

Join Thomas and his friends on new adventures from Sodor. Here you'll see when Thomas is the big hero when he saves the new station from an accident. Also there will be fish (which Thomas doesn't like the smell of) and a big circus, which is said to be a very big job. And trouble lays ahead when Thomas wants to do the job alone and doesn't share it with his friends.

Episodes

  1. Thomas Saves the Day - Annie and Clarabel help Thomas with a tricky corner on his new route. So when the Fat Controller announces that Annie and Clarabel are to be refit, Thomas is worried. When a runaway train of troublesome trucks becomes loose, Thomas must navigate the bend on his own. He finds that the 'difficult bend' is not so difficult anymore.
  2. Don't Tell Thomas * - The other engines are keeping a secret from Thomas. Will Thomas discover the truth? Or will he ruin the surprise?
  3. Fish - When Thomas takes too many trucks of stinky fish at once, it just makes matters worse. When Thomas slows down, he finds things aren't as bad as they seem.
  4. Halloween ** - It's Halloween and Thomas and Emily are sent to the spooky smelters yard. 'Arry and Bert do their best to give them a fright - and succeed until Thomas realizes that appearances can be deceptive.
  5. Spic and Span - Thomas and Percy are competing against the biggest engines to be the smartest engine on Sodor. Their efforts to get clean are repeatedly foiled, but then the unexpected happens - Thomas and Percy learn that you never know what you can achieve.
  6. Chickens to School * - Thomas volunteers to take three specials - it's tiring work but he won't accept any help. When Thomas becomes so tired that he gets his jobs all mixed up, Percy offers to help once more - this time Thomas is happy to accept.
  7. Thomas and the Circus - Thomas is to collect the circus from Brendam docks, but is told to share the load if there is too much to move. Thomas keeps the whole circus to himself and is soon having problems moving the huge circus. He discovers that sharing the load makes things much easier and much more fun.
