"Phew! Lucky for me you're a racing engine!"
— Caroline

Thomas Takes Off!, rereleased in 2011 as Racing on the Rails, is a magazine story.


It is the day of the Sodor Road Race. Workmen mark out the course with straw bales and tape. Caroline does not know about the race and accidentally trundles onto the course, overheats, and breaks down. Harold spots her and races to help. Harold alerts Thomas who chuffs urgently to the race course and alerts the workmen just in time.



  • The 2015 re-release reverts to the original title, minus the exclamation point.


  • Caroline's name is missing from her sides.
  • One of Harold's blades is white.
