Gordon's Double Chimney
Nix's Halloween Tale


Early before Henry's first passenger train, Percy the Saddle Tank Engine wakes up and heads over to Tidmouth. He shunts come coaches for the engine pulling the train, and leaves them at Platform 2. Then, he shunts the Wil' Nor Western onto Platform One. He then starts to organize trucks. He then has to shunt a goods train for Edward to take to Brendam. He takes a small break and then goes to work on Thomas' Branch Line. He pulls the local goods there and the mail train. He comes back to Tidmouth to prepare the midday Wil' Nor Western, a stopping train, and a goods train. At about three o clock he goes to fetch coal from the mines at Vicarstown. He returns, and fills the coal hopper. He organizes the yard and returns to Tidmouth Sheds.

"Ah", Percy sighed. "What a day of a busy engine."

He then fell happily asleep.
