Percy was telling a ghost train story from his driver to Thomas and Toby. However it turns out it was a ghost on television. One night, Percy was coming back from the harbour and he crashed into a cart full of lime. When he met up with Toby, Percy decided to scare Thomas for calling him a silly little engine. Thomas was getting ready for his evening train but Toby says Percy had an accident. Percy arrived at the sheds and scared Thomas. The next morning, Thomas was still scared. But Percy thought it was a great joke.
- The Ghost music, simply amazing.
- The fog effect, top notch.
- Percy being covered in white with streamers at the beginning of the episode.
This episode is perfectly suited for Halloween and it scared me as a kid. Mainly the ghost streamer Percy did with the music and the setting. But looking at it now, it's just lazily designed. But Mike O' Donnell and Junior Campbell have made brilliant music for the ghost. Feels like something you find out of Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho'. The fog effect, brilliant, though there seem to be too much at the quarry, but great scene. The episode is great and I do enjoy it.
