    My five year old was a train lover practically since birth and it was love at first sight with him and the Thomas & Friends trains. As he's gotten older and his attention span longer, he seems less interested in the regular show that's just around ten minutes long. He has been anxiously awaiting the release of the next Thomas movie that he could really get into so it was a happy day when we got King of the Railway in the mail!

    After seeing so many Thomas DVD's I am almost as familiar with them as Reed and I noticed some differences in this movie right away. Everything seems to be a bit more modern and updated from the music to the plot to the newly introduced characters. Thomas has been around for a long time so it's refreshing to see it updated every once in a while.

    I really enjoyed watching this movie with my kids! I always like movies with a good plot and life lessons for my kids. Thomas and his Friends are great examples of working together and solving problems and this movie is no exception.

    Paige was really into this movie too because of the "royal" theme since she in fact thinks she's royalty and the new trains included two new girl engines. We think it's about time some new ladies joined them! Paige has always been into the "boy" shows and toys and most of them only have a couple token girl characters so it's always nice when there's new ones she can enjoy as well.

    In our house Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway is the true royal event of the year!

    My son has been a fan of Thomas and Friends movies for over two and a half years now (he turned 4 in August). Each one he has seen brings fun and good life lessons throughout. This one is really no different. The movie's description at the top should suffice for what this tale is about.

    King of The Railway shares many similarities with the other Thomas and Friends movies (which doesn't hurt this most recent film). Thomas is always learning an important lesson, while those around him witness some of the issues brought up by said lesson. Gordon and Spencer debate about the "fastest engine on Sodor." Percy gets bashful and inquisitive on occasion. James worries about his paint. Thomas tries to keep a secret that conflicts with making others happy. Discovering/Seeing a 'new' engine that needs repairing. All of these themes should be familiar if you've seen any of the previous movies, but nevertheless, play well into this new adaptation. It's done in a way that doesn't quite seem 'old hat.'

    The fresh spin on this particular film seems to be a nod towards the usefulness of the elderly. Stephen, the 'new' broken down engine tells stories of long ago, when he was known as the "Rocket," for his speed. But because of the strength and speed of today's engines, he has been left behind for quite some time. The Earl of Sodor has a special job for Stephen, but doesn't want to reveal it until the time is right. So the Earl entrusts Thomas to remain quiet about it until that time comes. Thomas sees that Stephen really WANTS to be useful, but what use could an "old, broken down engine" be put to? Since it's in his nature to please those around him, Thomas becomes conflicted about his promise to the Earl in wanting to tell Stephen about his intended purpose.

    Format: DVD Verified Purchase
    Let me tell you about one of the more pressure packed situations I’ve enjoyed the past few years. I’m an older retired fellow who is having the time of his life watching the next generation of “Bowman” clan begin to develop into their own interests. And what do they like? Old faithful: Thomas the Tank Engine.

    Somehow it has been left to me to stay abreast of all developing video material (films, specials & miniseries) as they market to the store racks. I finance them, attempt to keep track of the right order, and then view them for questioning afterwards. It’s been hell…:-)… I put this list together and it has been a savior. Hope it helps!

    2000 – Thomas & the Magic Railroad [1]
    2005 – Calling All Engines [2][7]
    2006 – On Site with Thomas [3]
    2007 – Engines and Escapes – [4]
    2008 – The Great Discovery – [5][7]
    2009 – Hero of the Rails – [5][7]
    2010 – Misty Island Rescue – [5]
    2011 – Day of the Diesels – [5]
    2012 – Blue Mountain Mystery – [5]
    2013 – King of the Railway – [5]
    2014 – Tale of the Brave – [6]

    [1] – Theatrically released feature film
    [2] – Feature length direct-to-videos special
    [3] – 13 Episode direct-to-video miniseries
    [4] – 6 Episode direct-to-video miniseries
    [5] – Limited theatrically released feature length special
    [6] – Feature length special
    [7] – Available in a 3 movie collection.

    PS – There is an immense amount of available video content regarding Thomas & his Friends. This list is my attempt to keep up with just the films, specials & miniseries. Also, along the way I have been hearing chatter over a possible upcoming live action feature film (along the lines of 2000’s Thomas & the Magic Railroad) that will be set during World War II.
