Thomas and his chums return for eight exciting new adventures. In 'Gordon and Spencer', the Duke and Duchess come to the island with their own private engine, Spencer. 'Harold and the Flying Horse' sees all the engines getting ready for the vicar's fete, but Harold the Helicopter is feeling left out as he is on rescue duty and can't help. In 'The Grand Opening', a new scenic line is opening on the island and the Fat Controller has told Skarloey off for always being late. In 'It's Only Snow', it's winter and Thomas has a big Yule tree as a special delivery for the village, but his snowplough breaks. 'The Refreshment Lady's Tea Shop' sees the refreshment lady wanting to open a new tea shop, but she can't decide where to have the shop. In 'Trusty Rusty', Rusty discovers a bridge that needs mending and warns all the other engines, but Duncan doesn't want to listen. 'Salty's Stormy Tale' sees Salty upset when Thomas and Percy make fun of him. But when the lighthouse lamp goes out in a storm, Salty saves the day with an idea that fixes the lamp. Finally, in 'Something Fishy', Arthur wants to work on the new route to the fishing village, but is too shy to ask.
