Delete's Hallowen Story is the twenty-fifth episode of Delete the Mixed-Traffic Engine.
As dark approached engines gattered to hear Halloween's Eve stories. When the clock struck 11.55, Delete began a tale.
"This tale concerns my own class. The Thompson B1. It begins just five years ago. In 1950. It revolves around an unnamed Thompson B1. No. 61057. He was to pull a mail train from Peterborough to Liverpool Street. The moment he took off, a dense fog rolled in. He couldn't see. I don't know what he was thinking, with no way of knowing which tracks he was on, he was heading for trouble. There was a stationary goods siding about half way through. With the signalman unable to see which track he was on, there was no hope! A couple days later, the reckage was cleared. Due to the severe nature of the damage, he was scrapped. I may not be on the London and North Eastern Railway, but one thing is certain, his spirit is still around."
Delete had a morning train, so he rested near Tidmouth, and quietly thought about No. 61057.
"Let his spirit do its job", he said to himself and fell asleep.
