Trivia

This movie was the first production of Thomas and Friends to be directed by Greg Tiernan. See more »

Goofs

When Gordon challenges Spencer to a race after Hiro and Thomas "make a run for it", it was revealed that Sir Topham Hat and the Duke & Dutchess were inside Gordon's express. If that were the case, they would have seen Hiro sitting on the tracks with Thomas. Yet, they didn't hear about Hiro until Thomas tells Sir Topham Hat at Knapford. See more »

Quotes

Michael Brandon: Narrator: Suddenly, Spencer whistled long and hard! James and Toby heard Spencer. Suddenly, James and Toby steamed out. Spenser had puffed to close to Hiro! James blew his whistle /whoo whoo!\, and Toby rang his bell /ching ching-ching ching!\. Together they chased the mighty Spencer down the track and away from Hiro.

My children's favorite film ever!
4 July 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

One of my second sons first words, right there with mommy and daddy were "Hiro" (with sounds missing of course). This word meant TV.

I don't think I have to say much more. ;)

It was simply what his 2,5 years older brother always wanted to watch. :)

And it's parent friendly too! Meaning the kids father don't go out of his mind as he does with the Teletubbies for example.

Now (at ages 2 & 4,5) both my kids enjoy the movie and see it regularly. The younger one has adopted his big brothers interest in Thomas and Hiro.

Short about the movie: Thomas finds an old engine by mistake and since he's afraid sir Toppom Hat is going to trash him rather than fix him he tries to repair him himself.
