While the big engines were on strike because they don't want to shunt like common tank engines like Thomas. So the Fat Controller arranged Edward, but the big engines were not getting along with him. So he went to the workshops and saw Percy. Thomas came and the Fat Controller put them in charge while Gordon, Henry and James are busy sulking.
- Percy's character is just perfect. Shame it has been dumbed down these days.
- It was great to see Thomas hauling the old coaches and Percy with Annie and Clarabel
- The Fat Controller's office in the RWS is right on the platform. But in this episode it's all raised up near the sky.
- Why were the engines all covered up in the workshop?
Why on earth would the engines at the workshops be covered? In the Railway Series picture you see all sorts of engines, but in this episode, its just unsafe. You see Percy releasing steam from his cylinders and that could set off some fire to the tarpaulins. But looking at the engines wheels, they're Gordon, Edward etc. Plus, there's the Fat Controller office. In the RWS he's right on the platform, but in this episode, it looked raised up, is it up stairs or anything because I don't see passengers looking up at the windows.
This is the first time we see Percy and in this episode his personality is just gold! Much more better then any episode that you see of him today. Here Percy is cheeky where as in the later episodes he's a naive engine and it was also great to see Thomas with the old coaches and Percy with Annie and Clarabel.
