Strand VCI Entertainment was the American branch of The Video Collection which distributed five Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends VHS releases in the US.





  • Strand VCI Entertainment changed its name to Strand Home Video in 1992.
  • As there was only one round of nameboards between episodes, the “Next Story Coming Up Soon” card was shortened to “Next Story Coming Up!” The same scene from Trouble in the Shed is also used for that card on all five tapes.
  • Trust Thomas and Other Stories features the Strand VCI Entertainment logo at the beginning of the tape instead of the Strand Home Video logo. It also uses a “Next Story Coming Up” card with a scene from Duck Takes Charge.
