The engines were preparing for the Sodor Kite Gala. Thomas is very excited because he loves kites. The Fat Controller's Grandchildren are up on Gordon's Hill with their multicoloured kite. When the wind blows their kite away Thomas promises to catch it for them. Charlie wants to help Thomas catch the runaway kite but Thomas doesn't want any help. Thomas is sure he can catch it all by himself. Thomas soon realises that catching runaway kites is really tricky and he can't do it all by himself. It is only with the help of his friends that Thomas finally catches the runaway kite.
