Stepney's visit is coming to an end. Meanwhile a new Diesel came to the Island and was being boastful to the engines. They want to teach him a lesson, but their chance came sooner then expected. An inspector's hat was blown away by the wind and was sucked through the Diesel's air intake and caused him to break down. A train is due out, Duck and Stepney took the train to Crovans Gate for Gordon right on time. Stepney left Sodor with cheers and whistles and the Diesel sulked away without any goodbyes.
- Remarkable modelling of the Class 40.
- It's a shame that Stepney and Duck's train aren't fifteen coaches.
- Why did James have a BR style whistle?
First off, I love the Class 40 model that they've made for 'The Diesel', it looks like a BR Class 40 and I do hope that Andrew Brenner brings in another one for the series, show some strong diesels in the series instead of the little ones. But it's a shame that Stepney and Duck's train aren't fifteen coaches and that they started the train from the yard and not at the big station. The episode is good, but its a shame that in the RWS book 'Stepney the 'Bluebell' Engine', there was no explanation why he came to Sodor in the first place.
