THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
JAMES AND THE TROUBLE WITH TREES
Britt Allcroft and David Mitton
James was boasting that he's an important engine and when Henry had an accident with some trucks, James was teasing him about the forest. Henry told him that the Fat Controller's workmen are inspecting the line if trees are to close and that they can cause trouble. However, boastful James thinks he can just push it aside. However, the weather changed and the Fat Controller assigned James to take trucks. But with the strong wind and rain, a tree moved down onto the line. Thomas saved him and the two engine made amends.
- How the way the tree moved was amazing.
- The express are nothing but just red branch line coaches
- Shame that Knapford station wasn't in the episode.
- Wouldn't the tree fall down instead of standing up right?
- How was Thomas notified by the accident?
The episode is great, I love how the way the tree moved and the visuals, but there are many flaws with the episode. It's a shame that Knapford station wasn't in the episode. Maybe it was to be taken to Canada at the time of production of 'Thomas and The Magic Railroad'? Or it wasn't re-built in time for the fifth series? And how was Thomas notified by the accident? Did the guard go to a near signal box and informed the accident or was Thomas making his way somewhere? However, it does show the dangers of trees being close to the railway line and I think it would go up to Awdry's standards.
It's a good episode, but with a few flaws.
