BLOOMING RAILWAYS

Thomas and Henry’s crews are keen to enter the Blooming Railways competition, but are unsure as to how they’ll be able to acquire enough flowers and plants to compete.  Fortunately, Bob Flowers, the man who owns the Garden Centre finds he needs Thomas’s help to deliver his flowers when his lorry breaks down.  By way of a thank you, Bob kindly donates flowers to the crews for the Blooming Railways competition!

BILL AND BEN

After Bill and Ben try confusing BoCo in the Harbour yard, he decides to turn the tables on them and pretend he has a twin too!

LEAVES ON THE LINE

Wet and windy weather is making Thomas miserable, but when a tree falls down on the Main Line, he springs into action to save the day before Gordon collides with it.

 

TOBY SAVES THE DAY

A rude Bus Driver makes Toby feel sad when he ridicules him for looking old.  But when the bus suffers a broken wheel while taking the children on a picnic, Toby takes them instead, and the children enjoy themselves so much they ask to continue travelling with Toby as opposed to the brand new bus!

BLOWING BUBBLES

On the day of the Fat Controller’s Open Day at the Big Station, Henry ends up with a bar of soap in his water tank and begins blowing bubbles all over the yard!
