Adapted for Television by

Originally Written by
Although the Fat Controller is thinking well of James he was still being teased by Gordon and Henry.
The next day, Gordon went much to fast, that he ended up on the loop and he had be turned back towards the big station, much to the passenger's dismay. The Fat Controller offered James the job to pull the express and it was a success and in the end, Gordon, who was shunting trucks in the yard appreciate the quiet work.
- Gordon showing much appreciation with shunting.
- The mention of signalman having an important duty.
Gordon's appreciation of shunting and hauling trucks show the maturity he's getting like in the Railway Series. In the other books, you never see Gordon bad mouthing hauling trucks, minus that he hated pulling them in 'Gordon the Big Engine' because of his bad mood about not pulling coaches and that there is the mention of signalman about knowing the right lines and not the engines knowing the right lines unlike the recent series of Thomas.
There are no cons to me in this episode. It was filmed and made well.
