This DVD is another collection of classic Thomas episodes, from when the series was shot with live-action models, not computer animation.

Stories:
1. A Big Day For Thomas -Thomas finally gets his chance to manage coaches all on his own -only to pull away accidentally leaving his entire train behind.

2. Percy Runs Away -New friend Percy is making himself right at home on the Island, but runs away terrified when Gordon nearly crashes into him with the Express.

3. Thomas Breaks The Rules -A policeman is convinced Thomas is a public safety hazard for not having cowcatchers and side plates.

4. Henry's Special Coal -An ailment causes Henry to need special coal.

5. The Flying Kipper -Henry is doing well with his new special coal, but a switch failure causes him to have a terrible accident.

6. Trouble For Thomas -Thomas is eager to handle freight cars for the first time- and quickly learns what trouble they are when he loses control of his train.

7. Toby The Tram Engine -Toby is a tram engine who is sad that his line is closing down, and he will soon be out of work. But then he meets Sir Topham Hatt, who gives him a new chance at life working on his Railway.

Special Features:
1. Character Gallery
2. 2 Sing-Along Songs: "Toby" & "Sir Topham Hatt"
3. Bonus DVD Game: "Sodor Spelling Game"

My three year old grandson is fascinated with choo-choos and he would watch this and the other Thomas titles all day long if allowed. I actually wore out an inexpensive DVD player on this title (it was continuously running in the background just a single click away).

The lessons imbedded in the stories are positive (we all would like to classified as "really useful engines") and the characters are quirky and memorable. My only issues with this and the others in this collection are that the added features (such as the games) are pretty lame and the individual chapters are sometimes out of order in relation to the story arc. But I would highly recommend this for those with train-loving small children.

This does not come with a Thomas and gold Thomas as pictured, but rather with a black wooden Donald engine and matching coal tender car with the number "9" on the side. If you look closely you will see on the DVD box pictured that it says "Donald" above the pocket that holds the trains so I was expecting this and was not disappointed, however, if you want the trains in the picture you won't get them. That said, the video is a Thomas video and our 2 year old loves it, it contains 7 episodes and a running time of 39 minutes, plus 60 minutes of "bonus features" such as 2 sing-along songs, a "DVD game" called Sodor Spelling Game and a "chracter gallery". I haven't checked these out. Overall a great deal as long as you are expecting a Donald set!

It is very hard to find the older movies and with an autistic teenager who deeply loves Thomas, this was a great choice for our family

Still good stories with Ringo Starr narrating. The stories are arranged in about 15 minute intervals. My two year old loves all Thomas and enjoyed these too.
