Thomas and the Shooting Star is the sixteenth episode of the tenth season.

Plot

One night, Thomas is taking engineers to repair the electrics at the Power Station. But he wants to see a shooting star, so he keeps taking different routes, and as a result, gets lost. But when Thomas makes a wish to see what is ahead, the shooting star comes across the sky and Thomas finally sees the Power Station. Once the electricity is back on, Thomas returns to Tidmouth Sheds, much to Percy's relief.
