Duck has been working hard in the yard at the big station and the Fat Controller rewarded him with a branch line that runs along the coast of sandy beaches. One day, the Fat Controller is to build a new station at the port, with a little help from Donald, Douglas and Toby. Duck talked endlessly about his responsibilities that Donald started quack at him saying he sounds like a Duck. Duck felt hurt and so he and his crew decided to play a trick on Donald. Next morning, Donald had an unexpected passenger aboard on his tender.
- Why is Duck going to the quarry on Thomas' branch line?
- Why build a new station when really there is a station?
- Why was Toby there?
- No brake vans being added on Toby and Duck's trucks.
Despite the nitpicks I found in this episode, again, I have no problems with the episode. For the reason why, look at my 'Percy's Promise' review. This episode is OK, but it has it flaws. First, why is Duck going to the quarry on Thomas' line, they should've asked for permission to go up there due to the earth not being strong enough. Second, why build a new station when really there is an existing station right next to it. In the RWS story, there was not even a mention of a new station. Thirdly, why was Toby helping out with the construction? He should be working on the Ffarquhar branch line and also there are no brake vans at the back of Toby and Duck's trains.
As I said, I have no problem with the episode, it's OK. I still watch it anyway on my iPhone.
