Tender Couplings
Douglas' Breakvan Problem


Duck, Donald, Douglas, Oliver, and Spencer have been shut up at The Siding for several days and are starting to wonder why they were so stupid. Henry comes and tells them Sir Topham Hatt needs them to take frieght cars to the Docks. They agree, but it is dark. Henry tells them to check their lamps which Spencer doesn't agree on. Later, Salty shunts all the cars into position and all of them set off. Spencer takes the smallest and dimmest lamp and crashes into Gordon, Emily, and Edward. At the docks the engines don't see Spencer coming and Douglas crashes into him. Spencer is indeed sent to the Mainland again.
