On the Island of Sodor, two kinds of engines help keep Sir Topham Hatt's railway running smoothly - steamies and diesels. But is the Island big enough for both? It's not always easy for these engines to put aside their differences and work together. See what happens when the diesels tease Thomas. Will Thomas come to their aid when they need this Really Useful steamie's help? And when Gordon develops some very loud squeaks and rattles, will Sir Topham Hatt retire him to the yard for good? That's what the diesels say!

Get on board with the steamies and the diesels and see how they finally learn that, from brake pipe to buffer, all engines are more alike than not.

Trivia

  • This is the first DVD to be part of the New Series era of Thomas & Friends. It was also the first US DVD/VHS narrated by Michael Brandon, as well as the first US episodic DVD not to be originally distributed by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
  • The original trailer from New Friends for Thomas features footage from season 6 and 7.
  • At the end of the credits, after the "Produced By" credit, Thomas wheeshes steam and the text "Making Tracks to Great Destinations" appears.
  • The image for Thomas to the Rescue in the US episode selection menu uses the image on the US DVD cover.
  • Additional footage from It's Only Snow, Harold and the Flying Horse and Salty's Stormy Tale are featured in the Know Your Engines quiz, which is unique because the quiz game and the episodes were also on the Engines to the Rescue DVD.
  • Despite saying it on the back cover, some of the UK DVD releases do not include the Day Out with Thomas preview in the Extras selection probably because they started with the ABC for Kids ident and trailer. Also, a different scene of Squeak, Rattle and Roll was used for the opening of the Extras selection. The 2009 re-release doesn't include the preview either.
  • On the 2009 UK DVD menu, a still scene from the ninth season episode, Thomas' New Trucks, is used.
  • Only the VHS release in the UK has a trailer for the Thomas & Friends DVDs. This isn't present on the UK DVD release.

Goofs

  • In Thomas to the Rescue, when the narrator says "oiled Diesel," the subtitles say "boiled Deisel."
  • In the "Steamie or Diesel" game, Spencer is mistakingly called a diesel even though he is a steamie. Whenever the viewer get the wrong button, Spencer says he actually has a horn instead of a whistle and even says he is a diesel engine.
  • On the DVD menu, Annie and Clarabel's names are missing.
  • In the 2004 opening of the UK DVD menu, Percy has Gordon's whistle sound.
  • Some 2004 UK releases start up with the ABC for Kids ident and trailer.
  • In the UK DVD, the subtitles for Thomas to the Rescue call 'Arry "Harry."
  • During the "Surprise Destination" learning segment in the UK DVD, Emily has Gordon's whistle sound.
  • Michael Angelis is credited in the opening of the Norwegian DVD even though he did not narrate in that dub.
  • In the Steamie Stumpers Quiz:
    • It is said in Percy's New Whistle that Percy blew his whistle at Elizabeth and some ducks when it was actually Trevor and some sheep.
    • It is said in Squeak, Rattle and Roll that Gordon blew his whistle to cover up the squeak, when he actually slowed down to cover it up.
    • It is said that cakes and buns splattered all over Henry when he tried to collect the Dining Car, even though nothing splattered all over Henry when he bumped the Dining Car at all.
