Mr. Conductor's supply of magic gold dust, which allows him to travel between Shining Time and Thomas's island, is critically low. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to get more. Meanwhile, Thomas is fending off attacks by the nasty diesel engines. Getting more gold dust will require help from Mr. C's slacker cousin, his new friend Lilly, and her morose grandfather, plus the secret engine he's hidden all these years and couldn't get running.

Exterior locations were filmed on the Isle of Man, which was the original inspiration for the Reverend Awdry's stories. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie, when several of the engines are greeting each, James says, "Hello, Thomas", but Thomas isn't present. Also, Thomas is heard saying, "Hello, James" in the same scene. See more »

During the opening credits, the actors' names and the film's title are formed by gold dust. When Thomas' credit appears, he is seen puffing across the bottom of the screen. See more »
Where is the English charm? Why are all of the Engines now American? I watched this movie as I thought it would be a good tribute to Rev.W.Awdrey's life long work. It's not at all. The engines just sound annoying and the plot doesn't work at all. Has Britt Alcroft decided to go behind his back completely. Surely if Awdrey were alive today he would not be impressed at all. I am not a child but I still think that children should be shown a sense of consistency from the TV series. It's a bad film. The Island of Sodor makes no sense. Thomas is a British masterpiece and this film has ruined it. The producers should be ashamed. That's all I have to say.
