“I was trying to find you a welcome present, Hiro - something special from Sodor, but I couldn't find anything. I'm sorry."
"Thomas, my friend. You must not worry. My welcome present is right here. Being here with my friends is the biggest present of all,
and the most special present from Sodor, there is nothing more special!”
―Thomas and Hiro at the welcome party

The Biggest Present of All is the sixteenth episode of the thirteenth season.

Plot

All of the engines on the Island of Sodor are very excited. Hiro is returning for a visit and to help with the summer holiday makers. The Fat Controller is throwing a surprise welcome party at Knapford for Hiro and tells Thomas to tell all the other engines. But Thomas' mind is not on the party; he wants to get Hiro a wonderful gift to celebrate his visit. Thomas puffs all around the island, trying to find something special for Hiro. Later, Thomas arrives at Knapford, but no one is there, as Thomas had not told anybody about the party. Thomas quickly races around the island and soon they all arrive at Knapford. Thomas apologises for not finding a gift, but Hiro insists that the best present of all was having all of his friends together.
