Down in the Dumps is the seventh episode of Delete the Mixed-Traffic Engine


James' recent accident cause no injuries, and everyone got to work. The trucks didn't block the line, so Oliver could return with a ballast train. Delete went to fetch Rocky and the Breakdown Train.

"Don't worry James", soothed Delete. "You'll right side up by... by... the... end of the year perhaps?"

"Oh, whatever. As long as I am on the rails I'm good. But, you do realize I'm down in the dumps, and that this is suppose to filled with coal.", replied James.

"Sorry", apoligized Delete, and got back to work.

Clearing trucks was harder than Delete thought. And in the end he had to fetch some new rails. Paxton came to help too, but even so. It was tough. At last, only James remained.

Thomas said to Delete, "I'll take this little idiot."

As Rocky lifted James, he said, "Oh, thank you Delete, Thomas, Paxton. I could have never done it without you. I can't tell you how I felt. Well, I felt down in the dumps."

"Shut up! I can't concentrate", said Rocky.

When James was on firm rails, Thomas took him away, and Delete headed back to Tidmouth Sheds.
