More Foggy Days
Trucks, Ballast, and Engines


After the Fog had lifted, Thomas had had to deliver Coal Trucks ALL Night long, he was exhausted in the morning. He told Gordon all about HIS job, then Gordon told HIM about HIS job, he said no engine should be tired for just 10 trucks. Henry shuts them up as they start to get argueetive. The Fat Controller wants an engine to pick up children, take them to school, slate to the Docks, and tar to the Maithwaite Level Crossing. Henry WAS supposed to, but he had to go to The Other Railroad, Gordon said trucks were 'Unsuiteable' for 'Very Important Engines or (VIE)', so Thomas volunteered, after all, Maithwaite was on HIS Branchline. It was fortunate too, that Gordon told Thomas he wouldn't be able to do so, AFTER The Fat Controller left. Thomas was soon on his way, but he started to get tired. In fact he only woke up after Percy's conductor blew His whistle. He had delivered the slate and tar, but now the children, Thomas went too fast, when he woke up, he saw... A rock, quickly, the conductor uncoupled Annie and Clarabel, and all watched as Thomas titled to the side, and onto the floor, it started to rain too, but it wasn't until Tea Time, that Percy helped Thomas to the Ffaquhar Sheds.
