Thomas and the Missing Christmas Tree is the twenty-sixth episode ever made in Season 2.
It is the 23rd of December and the final preparations are being made for a carol party to be held at Tidmouth. Thomas is sent to collect the Christmas tree, but on the way back runs into a snowdrift and is covered by an avalanche. The engines grow cross waiting for Thomas to return, but soon the word spreads and the engines feel sorry for him. Donald and Douglas go to the rescue and save Thomas and the precious cargo. The tree arrives on time and everyone is delighted when Harold arrives with the guest of honour, Father Christmas.
- As Thomas crashes into the snow, he looks more annoyed than surprised.
