Originally Written by
After several days for being naughty, the Fat Controller allows his big engines to come out of the shed, if they are good. They promised and Thomas, Percy and Edward go about on the branch line for a few days. Percy was shunting trucks at Wellsworth, but being careless and eager forgot Edward's advice to whistle to the signalman that he's there. Then, in his horror was Gordon with the express and he was so frightened that Percy ran away until he arrives at Lower Suddery. After Gordon rescuing him, Percy learns to be extra careful on the main line, but he is still a cheeky engine.
- Gordon stopping an inch towards Percy's buffers was heart pounding.
There is no such thing as Lower Suddery.
First off Lower Suddery is nowhere in existence. Suddery, that's its real name, is located on Edward's branch line, get that con out of the way and now onto the pro, I love the music when Gordon screeched on his brakes and stopped right close to Percy. It's so dramatic and heart pounding thinking what would happen to Percy. This episode also shows another example of Awdry's characters acting like children.
They've been shut up in the sheds because they don't want to fetch their own coaches - like a child not wanting to leave his room to go to school or something else and realise they are not very important at later on in life. The episode is great and it had great music by Mike O' Donnell and Junior Campbell.
