Rheneas and The Roller Coaster is the 168th episode of Thomas and Friends


Sir Topham Hatt has given Rheneas the task of taking some school children to the mountains, but Rheneas is worried that he might not be able to make the trip memorable. Rheneas arrives at the station asking Rusty how he can make the children's day special. Rusty tells him that he knows the mountains better, but Rheneas is not sure his best would be exciting.

Rheneas' driver shows the children the Castle, the Valley and the Viaduct during the trip. The children are surprised, but Rheneas considers the locations boring and longs for more excitement. Meanwhile, Rusty is inspecting some track on the Rocky Ridge Line after heavy rain washed the ground and made the track bumpy.

While Rheneas is still trying to make the children's trip special, he is diverted onto the dangerous line, sending him on a roller coaster-like ride down the mountain. The children are very excited and have a wonderful time. Rheneas makes it to the station safely in time for the children's tea, but is worried that Sir Topham Hatt would be cross. The children have had an exciting ride after all, and Sir Topham Hatt is pleased with Rheneas and calls him a Really Useful Engine.
