Henry and the New Engines


Henry and James are not always the best of friends. They usually have arguements over whom is most important, or how splendid their paint is, and other general Main Line Engine stuff.

James has a sister named Nexus. She is the same class as James before coming to Sodor, and black.

One day, she arrived at Tidmouth Sheds.

"Hullo", she called cheerfully.

"Well, well, well", murmured James. "Your paint is splendid. Thank you for keeping me the only red engine on this Island. You know..."

James started talking about how splendid he was. It annoyed Henry.

"Shut up already!", Henry roared. "You've had your say on yourself. Now shut up and go to sleep."

"Fine. Be that way."

But James, eventually did fall asleep.

The next day, at the Coal Mines, Dodger was overworked. He puffed out of his shed, saw the trucks, and laughed

"I can handle this."

But he couldn't

"I'm exhuasted", Dodger panted.

"We'll need some Main Line Engines to help take away the trucks", agreed Dodger's Driver.


When Henry, James, and Nexus arrived, Dodger was no where to be seen. Then suddenly, Dodger came out and bumped Nexus into some coal trucks.

"Bleech!", she cried. "What is this stuff?"

"It's coal, you idiot", Henry replied.

"Oh. Why me?"

"I'm sorry lady", Dodger the Fletcher J76 replied.

"You leave my sister alone", James said to Dodger.

"You're no fun. Let's go Henry."

Henry followed Dodger, and soon was out with a long line of coal trucks.

"Hurry up lazybones. The clock ticks, and the Fat Controller is waiting", Henry warned as he passed them.

Henry and James, already being rivals, did not cause a good relationship with Henry and Nexus. For Henry and Neuxs, also argued about what not.

At the end of the day, Dodger said, "Thanks so much for helping out. Even though some of you aren't fun, you were a great help to me."

That, set up an arguement that lasted until the engines got to back to Tidmouth.
