King of the Railway is a 2013 CGI feature-length special and film of the TV series, Thomas & Friends. The film's CGI animation is by Arc Productions.[1]


Thomas, Percy, James and all their friends become very excited when Sir Robert Norramby, the Earl of Sodor, returns to the island with a big surprise. As the Steam Team discover mysteries of the past and legends of long-ago heroes, they also meet Millie, the Earl's private engine, and Stephen, one of the earliest engines ever built. Meanwhile, Gordon and Spencer are stunned when they encounter Connor and Caitlin, two streamlined engines from the Mainland who are even faster than they are. But disaster strikes when Stephen goes missing, and Thomas and the other engines have to put their bravery to the test in order to find him in time for the re-opening of Ulfstead Castle the very next day.


Mark Moraghan took over as Narrator for both the UK and US, (replacing both former narrators Michael Angelis and Michael Brandon) respectively.

Jonathon Forbes (Connor), Rebecca O'Mara (Caitlin), Bob Golding (Stephen), Miranda Raison (Millie),
Mike Grady (Sir Robert Norramby) and David Menkin (Porter and Jack) joined the cast.

This special marked the return of Jack the Front Loader (to the fold).
