Engines from all over the world are preparing for the biggest race Sodor has ever seen in Thomas & Friends: Race for the Sodor Cup™ now streaming on Netflix. The animated special follows the iconic characters of Thomas, Kana, Percy, Nia and Diesel as they learn how to use their various strengths and weaknesses to work together as a team to achieve their goal in winning the famous Sodor Cup.
