The rain could cause an landslide. Thomas thinks that the high winds never bother him. Rosie thought so too and said that she can be Thomas' back engine. But Thomas didn't want Rosie's help. He huffed away and Rosie followed after her. The rain was pounding and Thomas can hear Rosie behind her.

  • Narrator: Rosie sometimes wants to pull a special train by herself. One day, The Fat Controller told Emily and Rosie that the funfair train is waiting at Brendam Docks. Rosie was excited and hoped that she will pull the funfair special on her own, but Emily was chosen to pull it. Rosie was to be the back engine. Rosie didn't want to be the back engine. Soon, she had an idea. If she came to Brendam Docks before Emily, she will pull the funfair special on her own. When she arrived at Brendam Docks, she didn't see Emily coupled up. Rosie pulled the funfair special out, but the coupling snapped and the trucks hit Stepney, the level crossing and Emily herself. When she realized what she did, she brought Rocky to sort everything out. Soon, Rosie went to the back of Emily's train. The engines had pulled the funfair special on time.
