It's always the same before Christmas. They groaned. We feel so full. We feel so full.Oh, come on.Said Thomas.Where's your festive spirit? Chistmas day is almost here.By the side of the track, was a lonely little cottage with a familiar figure waving to them. It's Mrs. Kyndley.Whistled Thomas.Peep-peep! Happy Christmas.Thomas always felt better for seeing her.Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without Mrs. Kyndley.When work was over, Thomas went to see the other engines. All their coats have been polished. Huh.Said Gordon.Just look at us. Your driver will have to work fast to get you as smart as us.Never mind that. Replied Thomas. I've something important to say. Do you realize it's a whole year since Mrs. Kyndley saved us from a nasty accident? Do you remember when she was ill in bed and...Yes, of couse. Interrupted Edward. You told us how she waved her red dressing gown out of her window to warn you about a landslide ahead.And you and love gave her presents.Percy joined in. And the Fat Controller sent her to Bournemouth to get better. But.Said James and Henry together.The rest of us have never thanked her properly.Exactly.Said Thomas.So now I think we should all give her a special Christmas party.Everyone was getting very excited. The drivers felt sure that the Fat Controller would agree. As indeed, he did. The engines were all busy making plans when silence fell. Sir Topham Hatt had bad news.The weather's changed badly. Mrs. Kyndley is snowed up. Thomas says he'll help to rescue her. You must help too, Thomas. There's yes party unless you do.Thomas hated snow, but he said bravely. I'll try, sir. We must rescue her, we must.There's a good engine. You and Thomas will manage splendidly.Thomas charged the snowdrifts fiercely.
