Ice Magic is a 1997 annual story.
Thomas has to take Mr. Bjork, a visiting engineer from Lapland, around the island so he can start work repairing signal boxes. He even makes an ice sculpture of Thomas as a present for the engine. But it melts in Thomas' warm cab, much to the other engines amusement. Thomas is sad, but also surprised at what he sees at the sheds the next morning; a huge ice sculpture of the Fat Controller and some of his engines.
