Henry and the Express
Henry the Green Engine was feeling better. After his Welsh Coal had been brought back, he could now work more often. It was the last day of winter, so the enginess, espicially Thomas, were certain it wouldn't snow. In fact, snow was now starting to melt.
But, one morning, it happened. One moment, it wasn't, the next snow was blowing fiercly against the line.
"Snow has hit the Island, engines must seek shelter imediatly", called Control.
Henry was at Elsbridge with Thomas. Suddenly, Edward came with Rocky, and a flat truck.
"Load yourselfs", said Edward.
"No", replied Henry, you and Thomas can stay on the flatbed. I'll pull you."
Rocky soon had lifted them on, but there was a problem. Rocky's supporters had been stuck to the ground.
"Leave me", said Rocky bravely.
"Take care of my tender", Edward warned.
Meanwhile at Ffarquhar, Toby was towing Daisy.
"I hope everyone is safe", thought Toby
Henry was puffing as fast as he could. But, even so, the engines were heavy.
He was even with the storm. He had wasted time to instead push the engines and coaches.
"Where are we going", shouted Thomas.
"Crovan's Gate", his Driver shouted back.
Thomas, Edward, and Rocky's crew of course, had squeezed into Henry's cab. It is unsafe for people to be in engines whilst in motion on a flat truck.
The worse was yet to come.
(Avalanche blocks the line)
"We can't go further", sighed Henry.
Then, he got an idea.
"I'll push them right through", he said.
"That's your idea", replied his crew.
"It's worth trying", Edward's Driver said.
Henry blew his whistle, and pushed them right through. There, was Paxton, he pulled Thomas and Edward to safety, but then more snow covered Henry. Everyone ran, but Henry was buried.
A week later, rescue operations began. Tenders, people, and engines were found to be OK.
At last, Henry was found.
"Oof!", he exclaimed, "That was cold."
