New Coat of Paint is the fifth episode of Delete the Mixed-Traffic Engine.


Delete arrived at the Steamworks where it was full of activity. Engines were being repaired, mended, and tended. Soon, Delete had found his load, and was on his way.

On the way he thought, "This is a one in a life time chance. The color I choose will stick with me for the rest of my life."

He previously been a dark green, but it was so scratched up, you wouldn't know it was there.

He stopped by Percy, who had The Truck, with branches, leaves, and workmen. They probably had been pruning trees at Henry's Forest.

"Have you decided what color you want to be?", asked Percy.

"Actually, I'm still deciding. I was dark green, but you can't tell. I wonder if I should just change the shade of green."

"Your decision. See you", and Percy was off.

Next, he passed Saturn, Duck, Thomas and Gordon, Edward, Molly, Toby.

"So many colors to choose from", he thought. But, he had the color in mind.

When he got there, the workmen asked, "Give us some colors, and we'll settle it."

"Yes", began Delete. "I want olive green."

"Very well, we'll start work right away."
