Porter and the Trucks is an upcoming Thomas and Friends episode written by Morgan Jordan.
On a cool Spring morning, Porter was puffing to Brendam Docks after taking some milk to the Ice Cream Factory.Suddenly, he crashed into a coal truck near the Water Tower. His front was badly damaged. Paxton saw what happened and he shunted Porter to the Steamworks. Victor fixed Porter's front after a few hours. Victor told him that trucks are really troublesome and that he should probably keep away from trucks so he can't have another accident. Porter agreed with Victor and left the Steamworks.
On the way back to the Docks, he met Duck at a signal. He was pulling trucks of tomatoes, but they kept biffing and bashing him. Duck asked Porter to help him. Porter had a little think and refused and pretended he was in a hurry. Duck was puzzled as Porter puffed away.
As Porter continued to get to the Docks, he saw some tracks were flooded and Henry was in the water. His fire had gone out and he was pulling a truck of flowers. Henry asked for Porter's help and once again, Porter refused. He wanted to help Henry but he didn't want to shunt him and the flower truck together. He then chuffed back to a siding and chuffed down that track.
As Porter continued to chuff to the Docks, he met Thomas who was pulling some heavy tar wagons. Thomas wished he had a back engine. He asked Porter if he'd like to help him deliver the tar to fix the roads. Porter denied once again, even though he wanted to help Thomas, but he still wouldn't push, pull or even go near trucks. This made Thomas even more tired from pulling the wagons.
Porter was getting closer to the Docks, and every time he saw another engine with trucks, he would increase his speed and puff away as fast as he could. Soon, the Docks was just round the corner, but suddenly, Porter was going so fast, he broke his brakes and he couldn't stop. He chuffed straight into the Docks where Salty was waiting. Then, there was trouble. There were vans filled with custard on Porter's line. Porter crashed straight into them. Custard went all over him, Salty, Cranky and the whole Docks. Sir. Topham Hatt arrived at the scene and was cross with Porter. Porter admitted that he didn't want to go near trucks after an accident he had this morning. So, after Porter was cleaned up, he helped Duck with his trucks, pushed Henry out of the flooded tracks and help Thomas deliver the tar wagons to fix the roads.
