Thomas the Jet Engine, retitled The Story of Thomas and the Jet Engine is a promotional DVD featuring the sixth series episode of the same name. The DVD came with the Motor Road and Rail Thomas and the Jet Engine pack based on the episode.


All the engines on the Island of Sodor work very hard to keep things running smoothly on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. But even with all this hard work, sometimes unexpected things can happen. Who would have guessed that Thomas would rocket past the proud and fast Gordon, thanks to a surprising push from a jet engine?


  1. Thomas the Jet Engine


  • The UK version features the Thomas and Friends DVD advertisement with new music which had previously appeared on the Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock Animated: Dance Your Cares Away DVD but cropped to 14:9. In fact, this is the only release to have this promo in 16:9 widescreen.


  • The intro and story of the US version was taken from Thomas and the Jet Engine and Other Adventures. As a result, Michael Brandon is credited alongside Alec Baldwin in the 6th series intro, despite the former not narrating any episodes on this release. Also, due to the poor editing on the disc, the first quarter of the Nameboard intermission is left in only showing Thomas and James.
