All new animated special coming to DVD this year, telling the story of how Thomas became Sodor's number one blue tank engine, with a few Railway Series references added in,
Thomas in his LBSC livery when he first arrives on Sodor from the Mainland, James in his original black livery with red stripes. With a noticeable effect being that Thomas's cab number is 70, indicating the 70th Birthday of Thomas & Friends since 1945 when the Three Railway Engines book was first published by The Rev .W. Awdry.
It sounds and looks very promising, it will certainly be worth adding to a collectors DVD collection.
