In the year 2018, two guys named Dennis and Isaiah are working for the New York Times. However the world-famous newspaper goes bankrupt, and the two friends are out of a job. Dennis suggests that they go to the Island of Sodor for a new life. When they come there the world-famous Island is deserted except for the Fat Controller's house. When they go into his house, they find out the story. The North Western Railway went bankrupt seven years ago, and The Controllers of Sodor had to sell the engines. Without the railways, the people of Sodor left the Island. Now Dennis, and Isaiah must put the railways back on track. Can they do it?


The live-action scenes are filmed at the same studio in New York where Shining Time Station used to be filmed until filming of the live-action STS scenes moved to Toronto. Stock footage from the model episodes are used, with new dialog dubbed in. Original episodes are made using Bachmann and Hornby model trains and some customs, along with other toys.
