Due to the coal that the Fat Controller gives to his bigger engines, Henry can't make enough heat which creates his steam as his firebox is smaller then the other engines. So Henry was given special welsh coal and felt much better.
- You actually feel sorry for Henry here.
- We can see Henry in his new shape.
This episode is personally one of my favourites. It short and simple but great. Here you actually feel sorry for Henry because the coal he was given could not make the heat and he suffers badly. It's also great to hear 'Welsh coal' instead of 'Special coal', like in the recent series, it makes Sodor more part of the British isles rather then being a universal place, I understand that Sodor is trying be more magical nowadays. Despite how the episode's like, there is one nitpick, why was Henry in his new shape? I'm sure that was editing problem, but wouldn't the editors know that? Well at that time it was hard work editing episodes.
But this episode is great by its story and how you feel for Henry.
