Christmas Eve Crisis


At two weeks before Christmas, the engines woke up to see a blanket of white snow covering the tracks.

The Fat Controller quickly assigned Donald and Douglas to clear tracks, and told Duck and Oliver to 'make do' on the Little Western for the meantime.

Then, he came to Tidmouth Sheds.

"Due to the amount of snow, you will all have to wear your snowploughs."

"Yes, Sir," the engines replied.

Then, he went to Ffarquhar to tell the Ffarquhar Branch engines.

"Please, Sir, do we have to wear snowploughs? Because I think I don't need it, not today for the least," Thomas immeditely spoke up.

The Fat Controller chuckled.

"Sorry, Thomas, but no matter how bad you complain, you must wear your snowplough."

"Engine gets stuck in snow in winter of 1929; rescued by tractor," Percy said quietly.

Thomas frowned.

Then, the Fat Controller preceeded to tell Edward, BoCo, and David.

"You three must wear snowploughs."

"Yes Sir."

"No problem."

"Very well."

Then, he spread the news to Kirk Ronan.

Later, James was taking a stopping passenger train, when he was halted at Crovan's Gate.

"Bother. What's wrong?"

"Some trucks are stuck in a snow drift. You must help get them out with Rusty," the stationmaster explained.

"And leave my passengers?"

"Yes, I think Dodger can do that."

"That little goods engine," snorted James.

Meanwhile, the Scottish Twins were out clearing tracks.

"Larrge snow drift ahead!" shouted Douglas from up front.

The twins charged it!

"Och, well that was fun. Wasn' it Douggie?"

"Stupid snowplough, stupid snowplough."

"Stupid yourself," said a familiar voice.

"Oh, hullo Henry. You're probably wondering why I'm late. Well, I've my reason. This stupid snowplough! Sorry."

"One day, sooner or later, you will be stuck in snow because you didn't wear your snowplough and you will freeze," Henry warned catiously as he left.

"Huh!" exclaimed Thomas and puffed away.
