Thomas & Friends is a British children's television series, which had its first broadcast on the ITV network on 9 October 1984. It is based on The Railway Series of books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher Awdry. These books deal with the adventures of a group of anthropomorphised locomotives and road vehicles who live on the fictional Island of Sodor. The books were based on stories Wilbert told to entertain his son, Christopher during his recovery from measles. From Series one to four, many of the stories are based on events from Awdry's personal experience.
A new crane called Cranky arrives at the docksand causes trouble for Thomas and Percy. A storm traps the big engines and Duck in the dockyard shed. A tramp steamer runs aground into the quayside, knocking down the shed, and causing Cranky to fall over. In order to rescue the other engines, Cranky needs Thomas and Percy's help.
Three very Horrid Lorries arrive on Sodor and start taking over the engines' jobs. Percy and Toby receive the worse at the end of the tether. But eventually, the tables are turned, as the lorries get their comeuppance in due course. The engines work even harder to ensure the lorries never return.
Gordon complains about the plainness of a new station, and longs for a panoramic view. But over time, he keeps breaking down, and in a way, gets the view he wants, just not the way he was expecting.
On his way to his wife's birthday, the Fat Controller's car becomes stuck in a pothole. He hitches a lift in Caroline, who breaks down, and then George, who loses control and crashes into a muddy pond. Thomas, luckily, is nearby and the Fat Controller is forced to act as his "relief" fireman to reach the party in time.
A dirty Thomas is mad at James for boasting about his shiny new coat of paint. James' bragging prevents him from listening to Henry, Percy and Terence's warnings about trees that are too close to the line. Later, James encounters a tree on the line and Thomas comes to his rescue.
Gordon has problems with his fire and the others joke of gremlins. Although the turntable in the goods yard malfunctions, Gordon manages to get to Kirk Ronan before Thomas to pick up a special visitor. At Wellsworth, the passenger's dog runs away and, after confronting a bull, runs away again into Thomas' cab.
George the Steamroller causes a great deal of trouble for the engines. He goes as far as bullying Percy, tarmacking asphalt over the tracks, causing Thomas to crash through a chicken coop, and causes Gordon to crash into one of Duck's trucks. The Fat Controller deals with him after.
Thomas, Percy and Toby talk about a competition for "The Best Dressed Station" that is being held across Sodor. But as Percy is helping decorate Maithwaite station,a hungry ram is found in the station as decorations are ruined. To everyone's amazement, the ram manages to find the real culprits.
Percy complains that he is overworked, though the others are unsympathetic. While working at the Coal Mine, some trucks escape from him and they crash inside the mine-shaft, which causes the entire mine to collapse. Percy and his crew try to escape, but are buried underneath coal. Luckily, they are saved by a canvas barrier.
Heavy storms have been flooding the Island. Toby is sent to inspect the dam, and discovers a few leaks in it. It eventually collapses, causing disaster for a nearby village. He is forced to cross an unsafe bridge over the flooded river, but it breaks and he drifts off towards a waterfall. Harold and Percy are sent to rescue Toby.
Henry refuses to believe in ghosts, until he and his crew encounter a series of spooky events during the night. The trucks tease him, but later down the old line, they become spooked too. In their fright, the trucks surge forward and plunge into a ravine. Henry soon realises that the "ghostly figure" is actually Old Bailey, a friendly fogman.
Bill and Ben are worried when they hear that Derek, a malfunctioning diesel, is going to help them work in the clay pits. The twins misunderstand him by thinking he has a toothache. Unfortunately, Derek's "teething troubles" cause more trouble than he is worth.
The Fat Controller invites Stepney to work with Toby and Mavis at the quarry. He impresses everyone so much that the foreman asks Stepney's driver to take a night special. He agrees, forgetting to ask for the Fat Controller's permission. Stepney gets lost on the way home, eventually arriving at the Smelter's Yard.
Toby takes the Hatts on an expedition, finding a castle and an old mine. The destinations are reopened, but Toby is spooked by Thomas' story about "The Old Warrior", who hunts engines at night
Based on the magazine story "A Fishy Smell."
Henry is cross when Thomas delays him, and refuses to listen to his warning about a line eroded by high tides. The signalman isn't warned in time, and Henry is sent right down it.
Based on the magazine story "Fire."
Thomas and Percy discover an old coach named Old Slow Coach in the scrapyard, and want to save her. Later, a workman's hut is set on fire, and the workmen have no place to sleep. Percy suggests using Old Slow Coach, and she is soon restored to her former glory.

Thomas sees that a children's playground is closed, but that has to wait as the engines discover that Harold has been hired to show a special visitor around the island. Determined to show how fast he is, Gordon accidentally runs into a tunnel under repair. It turns out that the inspector was really there to find new sand for the children's playground.
Oliver is glum only shunting in the yard, and takes it on the trucks, causing an accident. He is put on mail duty instead. A signalman dozes off and they end up going down an old branch line.
Mrs. Kyndley asks Percy and his driver to make a "good luck package" for her daughter's wedding. They agree and slowly find the items as they go about their work.
The Fat Controller and his family go on holiday, though things start to go wrong. A low-flying bi-plane named Tiger Moth goes missing, so the Fat Controller and Harold search for it. He decides to go boating on a canal instead, though they become bogged down in mud.
Percy moans about his work in the mines and wants something exciting to happen. His wish comes true when a line of trucks breaks away from him on the hill, and the Fat Controller and Bertie chase them down.
Thomas tells James to think of others and that he will be much happier if he does. Later, James sees Mrs. Kyndley, who is upset her sister can't come and visitor. A "mystery tour" is arranged for her, and James is chosen for it.
Toad confesses to Oliver that he wishes to go forwards for a change, but the trucks are cross and promise to pay him out. On Gordon's Hill, the coupling snaps and Toad goes on a wild ride.
Duncan teases Peter Sam after some trucks fall into a ravine, so Rusty tells Duncan a ghost story to make him eat his own words. Duncan later has to cross the same ravine.
Rusty is suspicious of a strange boulder lodged in the mountains. A new machine called Thumper comes to work and causes chaos when he dislodges the boulder and it lets loose on the railway.
Thomas is cross with the snow, so Rusty tells him about Skarloey's own experience. His crew had stopped on the line to have some cocoa, but some slate trucks run through the buffers and into the ravine, causing an avalanche.
