Supporting characters given chance to shine on DVD

Various supporting characters of the TV Series are to be recognised in a compilation of episodes on US DVD.

Engine Friends is a Classic Collection 2-Disc Set with more focus on other engines and vehicles in a mix of shows from the model era.

A total of twenty stories accompany the release where twelve come from the Classic Series and eight by the New Series. A whole host of extra content and games also join the big lined up set.
The description reads; All aboard for epic stories of friendships on the rails - learn how Thomas met his best friend Percy for the first time and how Edward helped save Trevor the Tractor Engine from being scrapped.

Join the Really Useful Engines and see when Toby showed how being helpful is the most fun, and when the unlikely duo of Emily and Whiff coupled up and became firm friends!

Late Comedian George Carlin, Hollywood star Alec Baldwin and British based American actor Michael Brandon narrate the sporadicated tales.

Engine Friends: Classic Collection 2-Disc Set hits US DVD shelves on May 15th 2012.

Thanks to MrTrainfan1000 for the alert.


  1. I hope they can continue this pace with Season 2 and 3 episodes. After this set, there will be 33 more episodes left. I wish they would have done a complete 2 and 3 DVD set.

  2. Shame there's no Series 3 episodes, but it does look like a very nice release!

  3. I've been wanting another collection in the same vains as "The Greatest Stories,' collection (20 episodes from different seasons, 2-disc). But this collection including the episodes "Grandpuff," and "Sleeping Beauty," that's just the cherry on top a well-rounded collection.
