Episode 11: Happy Christmas To All, And To All A Goodnight.
The engines on the Island of Errol enjoy Christmas. One of the reasons for this, is because of all the passengers with smiles on their faces. They are either going to visit family, and friends, or buy presents for Christmas.
The Island Of Sodor was covered with snow. Everywhere the engines looked, they could see nothing, but snow. Sir Tophamm Hat had a special assignment for Thomas.
Sir Tophamm Hat: I got a Christmas tree that will be arriving in Brendam Docks soon. Once you get it, I want you to bring the tree right to Knapford Station. Thomas: You can count on me sir. *Goes to get tree*
However, on his way to get the tree, Thomas found out that it was missing.
Adam: *Arrives with a freight train* Thomas: Adam, have you seen any Christmas trees around here? Adam: No, I haven't. Salty: *Stops next...
Thomas was still in the field, where he landed after Diesel 10 threw him into a wall.
Percy: *Arrives* So, I guess you found the magic buffers. Thomas: Whatever gave you that idea. Percy: I saw Lady. How did you end up in this field anyway? Thomas: Diesel 10's beloved pinchy did that to me. Percy: Pinchy? Thomas: Yeah, you know that claw on top of Diesel 10? Percy: Where are Mr. Conductor, and C Junior? Thomas: They found a phone booth about half a mile from here. They're calling the break down gang. Percy: Interesting.
Percy was shunting some coal cars, but they were being troublesome.
Freight Cars: We want a better engine to shunt us! Percy: Well I'm the best you got! Freight Car #1: No! What about Thomas? Freight Car #2: Or James? Freight Car #3: Or Toby? Freight Car #4: Or Percy?! Freight Cars: He's already shunting us! Freight Car #4: Oh. Percy: *Getting angry* Be quiet! *Bashes freight cars* Freight Car #1: *Rolling towards buffers*
The freight car soon went into the buffer, and a whistle could be heard as he went in the buffers. Percy didn't know how that happened, but he decided to use it as an advantage...
One night on the Island of Sodor, the engines were sleeping. Well not all the engines. Thomas was busy at the Docks. A load of chemicals have just arrived, and Thomas was to take them to the new Science Research Facility.
Bill, and Ben were shunting Thomas' cars. "Why can't you just get them, and leave?" Bill asked Thomas rudely. "I'm getting coal, and water for my long trip." Thomas replied. He did his best to not be angry with the twins, but Bill, and Ben had other plans.
"You're too lazy, and can't do your own work." Ben told him. "Yep. That's why I'm carrying a train of chemicals to a facility...
Nikki has a 2-8-2 wheel arrangement. She pulls passenger trains, and if there are a lot of freight cars that need to be shunted, Nikki is there to help. She likes working on the Island Of Sodor, but not many engines have the same wheel arrangement as her. There were many engines that had the same wheel arrangement, but not with Nikki.
She was talking to Emily about this one morning. "Don't worry," Encouraged Emily. "I also don't have the same wheel arrangement as any other engine on Sodor."
"Then y'all probably know how it feels like to not be the same as one of the other...
