Thomas Stories

Percy meets a helicopter named Harold who thinks railways are out of date and slow. Percy is cross at this and hopes for a chance to prove Harold wrong. He soon finds his chance by racing him from the quarry to the harbor and wins when Harold is unable to find a place to land.

Thomas meets a bus named Bertie. Bertie is helping Thomas with his passengers, but the tank engine doesn’t want his help. Thomas claims he is faster and Bertie challenges him to a race. Bertie seems to have the upper hand at first, but once Thomas reaches his top speed, Bertie is left in the dust. Both become friends after the race.
