Stanley, Rosie, and Charlie see Percy out of breath leaving the Rescue Centre that they offer to take the load. Percy chuffs besides Rocky and tells him he is nervous. Rocky asks him why. Percy replies and says that he has to take the Duke & Duchess of Boxford, Sir Topham Hatt, Lady Hatt, The Mayor, Dowager Hatt in Annie & Clarabel. Rocky asks him what is wrong with that. He replies that he has never take so special vistors that a big engine like Spencer has to take usually. Rocky tells him that he and Captain were nervous when they rescued engines in the water and rails. He should just see how Henry takes him to Maron. Just the Donald & Douglas come to take Rocky away. Duck & Oilver load Captain onto a flatbed too. Percy waits until Henry passes by. But Henry breakes down at Maron.

  • Originally this was not supposed to air and "The Christmas Hype" would take its place. What's more the season would of 'aired' from November 23 to February 8.
  • The main character is Percy instead of Thomas and Thomas doesn't speak at all.
  • The reason 'The Christmas Hype' was canceled was because it sounded lame to the writer and having Percy nervous about something made it more interesting instead of Thomas being delayed at the end. For more info leave a message on this person's talk page- User talk:HenryDashPaxton3000. Also the idea in the head didn't sound winter-themed and this one did.
  • This episode officially and properly introduced Duck, Donald, Oliver, Hiro, Charlie, Rosie, Stanley, Bulgy, and Rocky. Lincoln, Jen, Anna, Joe and Scott of the Mystic River Traction Company Railway were introduced. Maxwell, Glenda, Neil, and Teresa didn't speak but were introduced. Molly was introduced as a non-speaking role and Douglas too. He was officially introduced like Donald although they appeared in The Curse of The Scottish. And Douglas appeared as a non-speaking role in Trusty Ferdinand.
  • Every character slated to appear in Season 4 appeared. About half spoke the rest didn't but were refererred and given the position 'non-speaking role).
