A Wonderful American Journey with Thomas and Connie (トーマス&コニーちゃん ワンダフルアメリカンジャーニー) is a Japanese Thomas/Ponkickies crossover special.


An animated Japanese character named Connie travels to America and catches a train from New York to the Strasburg Railroad in Pennsylvania. There she meets Thomas, and sees him getting ready for a Days Out with Thomas event. She then takes a ride with Thomas, boards a luxury express and learns about how American engines work. She also pays special visits to the Georgetown Loop Railroad and the Durango & Silverton Railroad in Colorado. At the end of the programme, Connie returns to the Strasburg Railroad to see Thomas and has another ride with him before going home to Japan.
