The Christmas Hype was the cancled pilot for Season 4.

                                       "I must get to Tidmouth Sheds on time"

-- Thomas after being derailed


The Christmas season had started earier than usual. Thomas found himself having 4 vans behind Clarabel. One day on Thanksgiving he has to do the usual mail run. But the load begins to be too heavy and he crashes into a very muddy and dirty ditch. Duck and Oliver bring Rocky. Hiro takes his train and Douglas tells the signalman to close the line. It takes an hour to rebuild Thomas' fire but, as soon as he's ready he goes off. The celebration starts at 9 and the trip to Tidmouth Sheds is 2 hours he has just enough time. Along the way he encounters some rocks and gets dented badly. Some snow falls on him, by the time he gets to the sheds he is late by just a minute. He quickly gets into postion and all the engines agree this is another great Thanksgiving.
