Thomas learns that life at home isn't really that bad when he accidentally gets loaded onto a ship by Carly again.


One day, Nemo and the Reef Team were all loaded into big tanks on a ship so they could visit the Island of Sodor to see Thomas and his friends. They were introduced to Thomas and his friends. The Reef Team had fun in the sea, and were given fun rides by the engines. Suddenly, one day, at the docks, Henry, Edward, Donald, and Douglas have a collision. While they were away being mended, Sir Topham Hatt sent Thomas to do all of their jobs, with no other engines available. Thomas was very cross.

When Thomas was pulling Annie and Clarabel, he was complaining that he shouldn't be overworked, and that pulling coaches shouldn't be necessary. Annie and Clarabel could hardly believe their ears. Thomas didn't really mean it, but Annie and Clarabel tell Thomas something they do mean: They never want to see him again. Thomas tries to intervene, but his coaches demand he leaves, so Thomas does while Stanley was sent to be their engine after he was done with his other work for now.

Thomas found Sir Topham Hatt, and told him what Annie and Clarabel said to him. Sir Topham Hatt felt sorry for Thomas, but told him that he shouldn't have been complaining. Thomas went around Sodor, feeling depressed. He was wishing he was somewhere else, when Terence and Gordon showed up to cheer Thomas up. Thomas went off to work on his branch line, helping all of his friends. He even challenged Bertie to a race.

While Thomas was working at the docks, Carly was having fun, working and swinging her hook, but she accidentally picked up Thomas, loading him onto a ship. Thomas was horrified, and tried to tell Carly to put him back, but Carly was having too much fun to listen. Everyone, including the Reef Team, watched in horror as the boat departed from the docks.It was then Carly noticed the situation, but was too late to get Thomas back. Annie and Clarabel were there with Stanley. The coaches regretted saying all those nasty things about Thomas.
