- “It's called the Star of Knapford. It's a very special star. If an engine passes by it they can make a wish and maybe, just maybe, their wish will come true”
- ―Salty, Merry Winter Wish, fourteenth season
The Star of Knapford is a Christmas decoration that supposedly grants wishes. Thomas was once given the job of transporting the star from Brendam Docks to Knapford, but instead of going straight there, he found his friends and invited them to make a wish on the star. Soon, the star was damaged by Thomas' bad decisions and had to be repaired. Thomas finally took the star to Knapford where his friends revealed that their wishes did come true. They all wished to be under the big bright star together.
