Duke was short of steam and Stuart (Peter Sam) was to take the train back to the main station. Falcon (Sir Handel), took Duke's passengers to their boat. While Stuart is taking Duke, the old engine had plenty of steam and pulled the whole train himself . Duke laughed and said 'You Can't Win'.
- Thomas not telling the story this time.
- A good moral from the episode's title.
- Why did they use the Skarloey Railway?
- Why was Thomas at the Mid-Sodor Railway?
- How did Duke puff alongside to Stuart?
The episode is decent, it stuck almost with the original, but there were a couple of visual errors, first off, why was the Skarloey Railway used as the Mid-Sodor line? And why was Thomas there? As it was set at Crovans Gate, which is really suppose to be Arlesdale. In the Railway Series picture, Stuart was coupled to the other engine of the train which would make more perfect sense. But I'm glad they stopped Thomas from telling the story and letting the narrator tell us the story, plus there is a good moral from episode's title.
