For as long as anyone can remember, the Island of Sodor, land of talking trains, has been a realm of magic and innocence but now Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends on the magic railroad are being threatened by diesel engines Diesel 10, Splotch and Splatter. Even the magic Mr Conductor (Alec Baldwin) who has always travelled between the train world and the human world of Shining Time Station is losing his powers and sparkle.

In the middle of this crisis, Lily (Mara Wilson), a resourceful 12 year-old meets Mr Conductor on the way to visit her grandfather, Burnett Stone (Peter Fonda). With a host of whimsical, witty and wise characters they embark on an adventure in the Island of Sodor with the brave Thomas the Tank Engine who reminds them all that 'even little engines can do big things'.

Britt Allcott makes her debut feature film directorial debut with this storytelling extravaganza.
