Douglas' Lunar Eclipse
Thomas' Snowplough


The North Western Railroad has to use new coaches and 8 of them in a train. Thomas, Salty, Nix, James, Gordon, and Henry are at the Docks. The new coach is red with lime lining. Gordon pulls the first train but he can't move them. Neither can Henry, James doesn't take a shot. Nix pulls it rather easiler. Henry tells Gordon and James that night Hix is bound to break the record... again. Henry is right. The next day 4 coaches are added. 12 now with the two break coaches makes 14. Slowly, but surely Nix pulls the train. The three big engines are resting with shorter train when Nix thunders by, so fast Gordon feels his dome was lost, James got sprayed with snow, and Henry's coal flew out of his tender. The next day, Nix's driver drives her to get her special coaches. They are three brown coaches. Short too. Some people with camera's, note pads, and sketches board the train. After a short run. They admit they are the World Record; Engine Edition people. Looking for engines who can break records and Nix did one.. by pulling more coaches a single engine could pull. The other record was 12. They put her in the 1942 issues 'till another engine can break it. Which really isn't possible.
