Episode guide
Peter Sam and The Television Train
Skarloey's Ride


N- Rusty the New Diesel was usually in charge of shunting coaches ready for trains, but Mr. Hugh was now more dedicated to fixing the line. Skaroley, Sir Handel, and Peter Sam did not mind finding their own coaches, but Duncan did.

James- Your late! And for the ninth time this week.

Duncan- Huh! I have to fetch MY own coaches

James- Poor old engine. Now, you cannot fetch your own coaches, then someone else must.

N- The next day, Rusty had left the coaches in place, and Skarloey headed off, but he broke down. Sir Handel took his train and Peter Sam would soon take him away. Duncan was so pleased he didn't listen to the warning about Skarloey. Skarloey meanwhile was still stranded when a shrill whistle was heard.

Skarloey- OHHHHHH!

Duncan- Get out of the way!

N- Skarloey closed his eyes and waited for the worst. He found himself on his side. Rusty was close by and helped Skarloey home, the Thin Controller came later

TTC- Worry not, Duncan... is to be disiplined, but you can go for repairs at Crovan's Gate. So Edward took him that evening.
