Storyline

Thomas is a tank engine who lives on the Island of Sodor, along with his railway friends. He often pulls his own coaches Annie and Clarabel. Sees the narrow gauge engines. or sometimes deals with Troublesome Trucks, He has his own branch line which is owned by The Fat Controller, also known as Sir Topham Hatt. His arch-nemesis is Devious Diesel. Thomas is apt to get into trouble by trying too hard to be, in his words, a "really useful engine," attempting to do things that are best left to bigger engines. Other members of Sir Topham Hatt's railway include junior engine Percy, Thomas' best friend, who is always willing to help, and big engine Gordon -- the fastest and most powerful member of the team -- who uses his superior strength to help the smaller engines get out of trouble.
