A Friendly Farewell is a video released in 2015 on the Wooden Railway website and on the official YouTube channel on 8 August 2015.

Plot

It is time for Sam and Logan to leave the Island of Sodor and Edward remembers the time Logan mistakenly gave Gordon the trucks full of bubbles and Thomas and Percy remember when they helped Sam build the museum. Sam and Logan cross the bridge to return to the mainland to continue their work there. It was sad to see them leave, but Edward tells Thomas and Percy that they will hopefully return to Sodor again in the future. This makes the two little engines happy, and Edward also mentions that they also have each other, and best friends will always be "best friends".
