A BAD DAY FOR SIR HANDEL
Originally Written by

Peter Sam and Sir Handel arrived on the Skarloey Railway. Peter Sam was nice and kind, but Sir Handel was cross and bothered and he insulted Skarloey and the sheds. Later that day, Sir Handel was to take passengers, he insulted the coaches by calling them 'cattle trucks', the coaches were obviously cross with him. Later that day, Gordon came with the express and he left speechless when Sir Handel told him the knowledge of coaches. Later that day, Sir Handel was to take trucks, but he caused an accident on purpose that caused him to de-rail. But in the end, he was sent to the sheds by the Fat Controller.
- The interaction with Gordon and Sir Handel was a nice touch
- The accident was done nicely, but not as it was mentioned in the RWS book.
- What was the point of this episode if Sir Handel and Peter Sam were already introduced?
This episode is alright, but I'm always wondering, what was the point of this episode anyway? They've already introduced Sir Handel and Peter Sam twice. This left a big continuity error. But I do have to say I love the interaction with Gordon and Sir Handel, as it was in the original story, shame we never get to see that again in the model era until the new series era. The accident was OK, but if you want to see the RWS accident, I suggest buy the book 'Four Little Engines'.
