James and the Express


After a week when the buffers, coaches, and cars are fixed the engines have agreed to give James another chance. He works with Henry. Soon he has to pull 5 very heavy cars of metal. Henry tells James to just take his time and he will be able to pull them all the way to his station and shunt them. James is doing good, but the trucks begin their stupid tricks. James has to get them down the hill and then 10 more miles. The trucks begin to hold back but James strains to pull up but not to break the coupling. Soon James does it and begins to put on the breaks and soon reaches a cruising speed. Henry is waiting a his station. Henry concagulates James.
