James and the Eels is a custom Thomas the Model Adventures episode. This is silimar to the RWS story: Eels on Wheels.
As summer arrives James often sees grass snakes near the line. When he tells the engines about them Percy is worried, but James simply thinks him silly. Then, some days later James has to take some boxes up to Knapford for a restaurant. One is knocked onto the platform and the cargo - live eels - is spilt onto the rails; to James' horror, some wriggle underneath his wheels. The eels are rescued, but James has bursted his safety value and Duck has to take his passengers while Thomas and Percy make jokes about wriggly things.
