Gordon Goes Foreign was a Thomas & Friends episode from the third season which never aired. According to Robert Gould Gauliers, the episode was originally going to be filmed as mentioned in an interview by Sodor Island Fansite. In order to create Big City Engine, the production crew were going to use one of Henry's old models and adapt it with a new face and smoke deflectors. However, this never succeeded and the episode was cancelled. One of the main reasons the episode never aired because it would have been too expensive and an already high-budget for season 3.
