THESE ARE SOLEY MY OWN OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE.

Written by Jessica Sandys Clarke

Air Date (UK):
Diesel swaps his dull load of slate for a haul of shiny red apples and bright flowers in order to please Sodor's schoolchildren.
- Despite Diesel was portrayed as nice in this episode, it's actually great to see Diesel and not another 'steam team' character.
- Interesting to see a 'push pull' combination from Diesel.
- How the way the engines transport the fruit and vegetables, if they're going to be loaded into open wagons, they should put tarpaulins to stop the ashes.
- I have to say, I don't like how James discriminate Diesel as being a Diesel because he never gets to take the piglets. It's just unfair to Diesel, despite him being devious.
- I know, I know, why was Diesel being nice?
- Why did Diesel push the van of piglets when Thomas was in the way?
Along with Edward and Toby losing their original personalities, Diesel's personalities was gone too! What happened to the word 'Devious' for this character since his introduction in 'Pop Goes The Diesel'. Not only that, but how the way James said to Diesel that he can't pull piglets because he's a diesel, I know this happened in the Railway Series books during the time Rev.W.Awdry wrote them, but around the time Christopher Awdry wrote them, he made James realised that Diesels are useful, why can't have a episode were engines realised that diesels are useful?
But however, it's nice to see Diesel having an episode to himself, but that didn't save the episode for being poor.
