The new site also includes 4 new and exclusive games and interactive activities that THOMAS & FRIENDS fans can engage in including:

-Steam Team Snapshots (make a picture with your favorite engine)
– Track Repair (help repair the track for the engines to move along)

- A parent-focused section has also been included in the site, which provides all the information regarding the Thomas & Friends broadcast that parents might be looking for, the series’ learning goals, and family activities featuring Thomas & Friends.
- As part of the site, information will also be available to educators for the first time ever tying back to the Thomas & Friends series. Elements include age appropriate lessons plans, games, and activities.
