History

Thomas and Friends

Philip had a dream about them while he was trying to find out why he was number 68, but was interrupted by Toby.

Attack of the Philips

Sometime before the events of Attack of the Philips, the Philips used to work with Philip in their old railway before Philip moved to Sodor.

The Philips decided to come to Sodor to visit Philip. However, Philip wasn't interested on causing trouble, so he didn't join them. The Philips decide to leave but were encountered by Diesel 10, who used them as his helpers. He sent them to cause confusion and delay on the railway. Philip was thought to have sent the Philips to cause all the trouble, but the engines didn't believe him. Thomas soon had the Steam Team agree to fight the Philips, but were captured. Diesel 10 sent the Philips to capture their friends including Duck, Oliver, Ryan, Stanley, Rosie, Donald and Douglas. Soon Luke and Millie, along with the other narrow gauge engines and Philip, decided to fight the Philip Army. The Philips soon spotted them and chased them but the engines made the Philips follow them to the docks were Cranky, Carly, and Big Mickey were able to capture them and sent them away to Misty Island, were they would never return. It is unknown what happened to them after their defeat since they weren't seen or mentioned when Luke visited Misty Island. It can be assumed they escaped off the island and went back to their railway.
