- “Well done, all of you. The rescue was done quickly and everything was put right efficiently. You are all Really Useful Engines!”
- ―Sir Topham Hatt, congratulating the rescue team.
Thomas is Rescued is a magazine story.
It is a rainy day on The Island of Sodor. Thomas is puffing down his Branch Line when suddenly, he bumps off the tracks. His driver realises that the rain has washed some of the ballast away and the track has broken under Thomas' weight. Harold flies overhead the situation, noticed the broken rails and goes for help. Sir Topham Hatt then sends out the other engines to help Thomas. Percy collects his passengers to meet his connection with Bertie, James brings the Breakdown Train to lift Thomas to safety and Duck brings workmen to repair the line. That evening, Sir Topham Hatt congratulates the team on a job well done.
