With Thomas away at the works, the Fat Controller had brought in Daisy the Diesel Railcar. The Fat Controller asked Toby and Percy to show her the shed. When they did, Daisy acted snobbish and boastful, she was rude to the two engines about the sheds and was also rude to Annie and Clarabel and Henrietta by calling them rubbish, they were most offended. One day, Daisy was to take a tanker of milk with her passengers, but she refused to do it. She was cross that she shook and blew a fuse. Daisy soon told them that her fitter says 'pulling is bad for her swerves.' So they uncoupled the tanker and Daisy laughed at her own fib.
- Daisy being the show's first female engine.
- Daisy's face looks really 1980's.
- Why was the milk predicament take place at Elsbridge?
- 'So they uncoupled the van'. It's a tanker.
Most people would say that Emily or Lady are the first female engines, but really it was Daisy. Emily would count as the island's first steam engine in the TV series. Lady, she would be if she was a recurring TV character and not in the movie. In the books, her face is green from the livery of the DMU Railcars, but in the TV series she has make up and it looks really 1980's and it does look good as well.
But there was one visual errors in the episode. The milk predicament was taken place at Ffarquhar in the RWS book, it would be good if they based the station with Rev.W.Awdry's map of his Ffarquhar layout and bit of a minor goof, but I think you'll know by now. The episode is good and I do enjoy it.
