"That's not Thomas!"
"No, it's of all of us.
— Gordon and Percy

Thomas and the Statue is the fifteenth episode of the ninth season.


A statue has been ordered to celebrate the Fat Controller's Railway and Thomas is sent to collect it from the Docks. At the Docks, Thomas is very eager to see the statue thinking that it might be of him as the statue's shape, outlined by the tarpaulin, is similar to his own. Cranky scoffs at Thomas for being vain. That night, Thomas cannot wait to tell his friends, but they are all fast asleep. So he wakes up Percy, who tells Thomas that having a statue of himself is nice.

The next morning, all of the engines are sent to have a washdown whilst Thomas collects other things for the statue ceremony. Thomas tells Edward, Emily, and Percy about his statue, which makes them all very cross. After his jobs, Thomas heads back to Tidmouth, determined to put things right with his friends.

However, the Fat Controller is worried; the snow has blocked the tracks to Abbey where the statue ceremony is to take place. Thomas kindly offers to get the tracks clear of the snow, despite his dislike of his snowplough. Thomas sets to work and soon all of the tracks to Abbey are clear for the engines. However, they are still cross with Thomas.

Suddenly, the snow starts to melt off of the statue and to everyone's surprise, it is not a statue of just Thomas. It is a statue of the entire Steam Team with the Fat Controller. Even Thomas is relieved when he sees the true identity of the statue.
