All aboard for excitement and adventure with Thomas The Tank Engine and his very splendid shiny red-painted friend James. For over 30 years, Thomas and James have worked together and learnt the consequences of vanity and they would like to share a collection of their favorite adventures with you. Thomas and James work together for the first time when Thomas rescues James after his accident with cars, earning his own branch line and making him a really useful engine. James then learnt to be really useful by managing a troublesome line of cars and pulling the express in Gordon’s absence. Watch as James plays a trick on Thomas by pulling the express and leaving the cars for Gordon. Even though Thomas and James’ relationship has been brought strained from James’ vanity, Thomas is able to convice the boastful red engine that even trees can be a trouble to the line sometimes and that making someone happy sure does make you feel better. The two engines learn the usefulness of the Red Balloon after it takes their passengers away and the importance of courage when it comes to either hauling a dirty barge or delivering fireworks. James then learns that foolish freight cars don’t mind getting dirty and helping a friend out makes you more useful then clean. Thomas learns the importance of making the children happy despite James’ boastfulness and what happens when you try to avoid being teased and cope with a sticky situation. While learning these valuable lessons, Thomas and James have kept their friendship splendidly on track!
