{Cut to next morning. Spencer is pulling an express to Knapford Station.}

Narrator: Next morning, Spencer was taking an express to Knapford. What he didn't know, was that the diesels were planning their next scheme to destroy Sodor.

Diesel 11: Heh heh heh heh heh! When the puffball comes by, the bomb will blow him up!

Diesel 10: Here he comes now. Hide!

{Diesel 11 and Diesel 10 hide behind the station. Meanwhile, Thomas is looking for Spencer.}

Narrator: Thomas knew things didn't add up. He went to the nearest station, and Boco, fortunately, was there.

Thomas: Boco, have you seen Spencer?

{Spencer approaches Knapford Station.}

Boco: Spencer, I heard he's on his way to Knapford.

{Diesel 11 and Diesel 10 back away from Knapford.}

Thomas: Oh, no! {puffs away}

Narrator: Thomas rushed away, much to Boco's surprise.

Boco: Thomas, where are you going?

Narrator: But as soon as he shouted it, Thomas was already out of earshot.

{Thomas approaches Knapford Station. Spencer is going past the station.}

Thomas: Spencer!

{Spencer barely leaves the station, and then there's an explosion. Pitch black.}

Thomas: {off-screen} Noooo!

{Thomas puffs to Knapford Station's remains. Spencer is lying on his side, the trucks are in a mess, and Knapford Station blown up.}

Thomas: Spencer, are you all right?

{Spencer's eyes slowly open.}

Narrator: Spencer was badly damaged. His body was scratched up badly, and his smokestack was bent down. His cab was severely damaged and his fire had gone out.

Spencer: Wh... what h... happ... ened...?

Thomas: {to self} Thank goodness you're okay.

Narrator: Soon, Molly came by with Rocky the crane, along with Toby, Emily, and Percy.

Rocky: Grinding gears! What happened to the station?

Thomas: Knapford Station's been destroyed.

Narrator: Rocky lifted Spencer on to a flatbed, and Molly took him to the the Steamworks. Thomas thought about the explosion.

{Meanwhile, Smelter is puffing slowly on another part of the Island. He stops alongside an engine named J.L. Bark.}

J.L. Bark: You do know these stupid attempts may well have put us under the guillotine!

Smelter: You ordered it, J.L. Bark.

J.L. Bark: I never once did say you going and destroy stations! You killed nearly twenty people from what I heard! You have been too cold-hearted. You kill innocent people, exactly the opposite of what I expected from you. You will be dealt with. You will be followed wherever you go. And any attempt of destroying anyone else will be the end of you.

Narrator: Smelter sneered at Bark, and puffed away, to prepare his next scheme.

{Cut to Thomas pulling Annie, Britanny, and Clarabel to Elsbridge Station. He stops by Edward, Stanley, Percy, Toby, Emily, and Molly, all in shock. We see why: J.L. Bark's remains and fire trucks.}

Thomas: Oh, no, not Bark!

Molly: Who's doing all this damage to Sodor?

J.L.Bark: Diesel 10 and Diesel 11 and Diesel 12 and Diesel and Smelter and Arry and Bert and Splatter and Dodge.

Toby: That's possible.

Thomas: Hmm.

{Thomas looks at Stanley. A thought bubble appears over him. His first thought is Bark destroyed.}

{His second thought is last time Diesel 10 arrived.}

{His third thought is when Cecil was destroyed.}

{His fourth thought is when Edward was destroyed in the Knapford explosion six years ago.}

{His final thought is Bark. Thomas looks up.}

Bark: What are you looking at?

{The thought bubble disappears.}

Thomas: {excited} I got it! It is Diesel 10 and his friends are trying to destroy us!

Stanley: Why are you smiling, Thomas? It's bad. Like last time.

Thomas: No, see, I had to put the clues together.

Molly: Thomas! You're a genius! {frowns} But we need more information.

Thomas: Then Stanley, Edward, and I know of this engine called Lord!

Percy, Toby, Emily, and Molly: {shocked} Lord?

Stanley: He worked with me, Thomas, Lady, and Edward during Sodor's first twenty-five years! We'll show you!

{Thomas, Percy, Edward, Stanley, Toby, Emily, and Molly puff away.}

Narrator: And so, Thomas and Edward and Stanley took Percy, Toby, Emily, and Molly to an old line of Sodor. They reached a station. To Percy, it looked like a ghost railway, no trains and no passengers. This made Percy worried.

Percy: Thomas, I'm scared! Can't we go back?

Thomas: Not until Stanley and Edward and I show you four a friend of ours.

Narrator: The engines reached an abandoned shed.

A voice: Hello?

Narrator: Percy gasped.

Percy: The voice came from the shed. But there are no trains on this line.

Narrator: Suddenly, the doors creaked open. And what went out into the open was a purple and gold tender engine. He was destored. His tender was smashed, his boiler ripped, his tender wheels gone, and no bufferbeam. Percy felt scared, then the engine smiled. It was a little, frightened smile, but it made the engine look friendly, making Percy less scared.

Thomas: Hello, Lord. It's been years.

Lord: Hello, Thomas old friend. You too, Stanley. Edward.

Stanley: Hello, Lord.

Thomas: Lord, these are my friends, Percy, Toby, Emily, and Molly.

Emily: Hello.

Molly: Why are you here? Where have you been?

Lord: That's a long story. Do you like stories?

Percy: Yes. The little engines tell us stories all the time.

Lord: Then, I hope you will like mine. I came to Sodor a long time ago. I was one of the first steam engine on Sodor.

{Shows a flashback of Thomas, Stanley, and Lady working on the Sodor Line.}

Lord: {narrating} I arrived in the 1920's, with Edward. Stanley arrived in the next decade. Thomas and Lady in the previous. When I arrived, it didn't look at all like home.

Molly: {voice-over} What was Sodor like then?

Lady: {narrating} It was very quiet. I was one of the few engines on Sodor. They called me "God of the Railway" here. I was very happy.

Percy: {voice-over} What happened to you?

Lord: {narrating} {sighs sadly} The railway was sold in 1946, after the Second World War. Stanley and Lady and I were withdrawn from service, and when Stanley was rescued from scrap, I was all alone, with no one to talk to.

Emily: What happened when we rescued Lady?

Lord: I was farther away. I only moved recently.

{Cut back to present day.}

Lord: I'm sure I'll never be useful again.

Molly: We've got a problem right now - Diesel 10 and his helpers are destroying Sodor, and want to destroy you.

Lord: Oh, no! I must be kept out of harm's way.

Narrator: Percy, Toby, Emily, and Molly looked at their sad, new friend. They felt sorry for Lord.

Thomas: Don't worry, Lord. Sir Topham Hatt knows of you. He wouldn't scrap any useful steam engine.

Edward: We will help you become "God of the Railway" again!

Narrator: Lord smiled the biggest smile he had smiled in a long time.

Lord: Thank you for looking after me.
