Thomas and the Runaway Kite is the thirteenth episode of the thirteenth season.

Plot

It is the day of the Sodor Kite Festival and Thomas must collect the winner's cup from Brendam Docks. After collecting it, Thomas stops on Gordon's Hill, to find Stephen and Bridget Hatt flying their kite. Suddenly, they spot Thomas and wave to him. And in doing so, Stephen loses the Kite to the wind. Thomas races after it, and spends all day trying to catch it. After declining help from Edward, Percy, Emily and Charlie, Thomas soon realises he needs help after he uses up all of his coal. The engines eventually help him, and they successfully catch the kite when it lands on a signal. Thomas collects Stephen and Bridget and their kite is declared the winner, much to Thomas' delight.
