The series features a cheeky, fussy, true blue engine and a side cast of track stars including James, Percy, Emily, Henry and Gordon, as well as the fat controller of the Railway – Sir Topham Hatt. As children embark for fun and excitement with their engine friends, adventures unfold that lead to timeless life lessons such as discovery, friendship and cooperation.
