A New Colour


James has been stuck in the Mud for several days and is starting to see sense. His shiny red coat is ruined all he can do is watch engines go by and laugh at him. The only other thing he could do is be an attraction to children. But, James feels he's been teased enough already. Finally, Douglas arrives with the Breakdown Train. He is lifted onto the Track and The Fat Controller tells him pick up mud that has been washed out of the road. He does, but the job is so dirty his whole red coat is turned to brown, even His Tender. Percy is at the Docks with his new coat of paint when James comes in. Percy laughs with The Truck who was also been repainted. Percy calls James a 'Mud Pie'. James doesn't mind as long as he's been Really Useful.
