Thomas the Famous Engine is a 2001 annual story.
Diesel plays tricks on Thomas and Gordon, so Duck decides to pay him out.
- Although Thomas does appear in the story, the title is very misleading since it is focused on Duck and Diesel. It is likely that the title is an oversight, considering the previous annual had a story of the same name and both stories start on the same page of their respective annuals.
- The side of Diesel's running board is red instead of black.
- In one illustration, Duck's wheels are grey instead of black.
- Duck's whistle only has one valve.
