One day, Donald headed down the line to Brendam with some full trucks of China Clay.

"Be careful!" called Bill.

"Those trucks can trick you up," advised Ben.

"I will. Not like ol' Douggie, who's had accidents with them," Donald thought.

But heading down the hill, diaster struck.

"On! On! On! On!" screamed the heavy trucks.

"Stoooooooooop!" Donald shouted back.

Donald was out of control and worse was to come!




"Quickly, Driver. We must get into the loop," BoCo thought.

BoCo's Driver accelerated!

(scene interchanges engines' and Drivers' face)

And he reached the loop . . .

"Just in time!" both engines sighed with relief.

Donald was controlled by the time he reached Brendam, but was then afterwards very grateful for BoCo's quick thinking that saved a nasty head-on collision.
