Thomas and Bertie retitled Thomas and Bertie's Great Race in American releases, is a first season episode.
Thomas meets Bertie, the bus who took his passengers home after he crashed into a snowdrift. Bertie claims to be faster than Thomas; Thomas denies his claim, and to settle the matter they decide to have a race. Bertie manages to stay in front for the majority of the race, but Thomas passes him at the tunnel and barely wins.
