Six brand new Thomas & Friends episodes never seen on TV before!

Enter the exciting world of the narrow gauge railway and travel high up the hills of Sodor where the intrepid little narrow gauge engines have many amazing adventures in some exhilarating and epic environments!

The narrow gauge engines include such favourites as the wise Sir Handel, the brash and boisterous Duncan and the mischief-making & fun-loving duo Rheneas and Skarloey.


Join Thomas and his friends when they have fun in the snow! Also, they must help someone to safety when a storm comes to Sodor. And in the episode "Pling-a-Lig", Mr. Percival gets a new bicycle, but the bicycle needs a bell. They try many different bells, until they find the right one.
