Follow that Flour is the first episode of the tenth season.


Thomas is jealous when James gets to take some flour to the Harvest Festival and decides to hide the truck. However, a door opens and the flour leaks everywhere. Thomas is upset and goes to get a new truck, but the only full truck left is at the back of a siding and James has to help. The flour is made into delicious cakes and bread for the festival and Thomas cheers for James.




  • For an unknown reason, most of this episode was shot with the large scale models of Thomas and James.
  • In Germany, the episode is called "Always Track After a Meal" or "Always Trace the Flour". In Norway, it is called "The Flour that Disappeared". In Japan, it is called "The Flour".
  • This episode marks Sir Handel's first appearance since the fourth season episode, Bowled Out.
  • The large scale open wagons have the faces of regular scale vans.


  • Thomas reversed into a siding, so, seeing he was pushing the flour truck, he should have seen the trail of flour.
  • Why did Thomas think James was being bossy even when James asked him kindly to shunt the truck?
  • The truck could not have carried enough flour to leave such a long trail.
  • Since the flour was in bags, there should have still been flour in the truck.
  • Brakevans should have been added to Rusty, Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel, Duncan, Peter Sam, Thomas, and James' trains.
