Thomas mocks Diesel for not being a steam engine, and for being different than the other locomotives. Diesel tries to prove himself in a race against Thomas, but suffers a bridge accident and looses his cargo. Thomas rescues Diesel, and is rewarded with a visit to the rescue center on the mainland. Thomas is placed on a raft and pulled by boat. The chain connecting the raft to the boat breaks during the trip, and a lost Thomas is eventually stranded on Misty Island. His only companions are the "Logging Locos", a trio of locomotives who received unfavorable transfer there for poor behavior. After exploring the island for a while, Thomas learns that there is a tunnel connecting Misty Island and Sodor. Thomas and the Logging Locos attempt to cross the tunnel, but are trapped in a cave-in. Thomas uses his engine smoke to signal for help, and the group are rescued by Percy and Whiff. Once he returns to safety, Thomas learns that Sir Topham Hatt was looking for him and has led a rescue ...Written by
When Thomas is breaking free from the freighter on his raft the running lights on the ship are reversed. A red light should be visible from the left/port wing and a green one from the right/starboard, not the other way round. See more »

Awesome Thomas and Friends Movie, A Must See!!!
This movie totally houses the lame Thomas and the Magic Railway movie. This is what a Thomas movie should be. Fun, adventurous, creative, and with a hint of evil at the end...
My son and I love this movie. He is two and a half, I just about 40. From the first act where Sir Topham Hat introduces the "jobi" wood, you know that this movie is in the pocket. Hiro mentioning that jobi wood only grows on one or two locations in his now radioactively challenged island while a tear streams from his eye was genius. Then the not so subtle hint of racism as Diesel says that he wants to win the "Most Useful Engine" of the day contest and have the privilege of pushing the jobi wood to the construction site but Thomas says that Sir Topham Hat was really meant the most useful steam engine as diesels are noisy and dirty...
There are only two faults with this movie; Sir Topham Hat's terrible overacting (like he's on a soap opera) and Thomas mindlessly repeating the rhyme about how he makes good decisions. The res of the movie is brilliant.
Misty Island is great and the hillybilly inspired Logging Locos, Bash, Dash, and Ferdinand are funny and really interesting. Great characters who teach Thomas to let his hair down and not be so uptight and proper.
This movie has a great story, great characters, and great animation. The icing on the cake is at the end of the movie when all the trains are celebrating at the dock, the evil Diesel 10 rolls into frame looking down on the steamies from atop a mountain and vows his revenge. Sure it was probably just a teaser to get everyone interested in th upcoming Day of the Diesels movie but it was still an awesome touch.
I have to say that when Thomas moved from real models to CGI, I was disappointed but this movie shows you how good CGI can be. The trains and sets look like models and sometimes it is hard to tell, it is so well done. Bravo. Bravo.
