First Look: Season Sixteen debuting in Australia

The long awaited Sixteenth Season of Thomas & Friends is finally recieving a broadcast run in February, but this time in Australia.

ABC Television have confirmed the broadcasting on their website schedule's page, with the new season airing on ABC2, one of the company's channels.

The Australians will be the first to witness the new twenty episode run for 2012 rather than the UK and US, with only it's debut show being detailed.
Race to the Rescue
Flynn is the Sodor Island Fire Engine and his wheels have been adapted so that he can roll on the road as well as on the train tracks.

As he sets out on the road he's nervous and his wheels wobble. Charlie chuffs by and makes fun of him leaving Flynn feeling silly.

Rocky then tells Flynn that Sir Topham Hatt's shed is on fire. Flynn drives off but instead of using the road which would be faster, he goes on the tracks so he won't be a 'big red wobble on wheels'.

The episode is indeed part of the new run as evident by ABC's briefing of the show; Join Thomas and his friends as they travel the tracks on the Island of Sodor during these new episodes.

Japan was confirmed exclusively a week back to be airing the 2012 Series along with it's two preceders.

Season Sixteen of Thomas & Friends starts airing on ABC2 on Thursday February 16th 2012 at 2:55pm, with further episodes due to be clarified in the schedules.


  1. Not long to wait for a UK broadcast hopefully :)

  2. I don't like the sound of that episode at all

  3. As a tip, use "its" without an apostrophe when you are talking possessive form. We can't say "it is debut", but that's pretty much it from your everyday Grammar Nut.
    On the plot, this is just a crying, crying shame to see how low they can go. Hope the visuals make up for it as usual.

  4. I smell a rewrite of Fiery Flynn...
