Narrator: Henry is a big, strong green engine. When he first arrived on Sodor, he was prone to illness, and couldn't work properly. But he has his new shape now, and can do his jobs without any trouble. One evening, Henry returned to Knapford with a passenger train.

Henry: Good evening, sir.

Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Henry. I've just had some news. My railway has needed an extra engine or two to help out. And the only engines on the mainland available are diesels. You and the other engines must make them feel welcome here on Sodor.

Henry: Yes, sir. I hope the diesels are friendly, and don't cause trouble like some diesels on this railway did.

Narrator: The next morning, the two diesels arrived and surveyed Tidmouth Sheds.

D199: It's time, D7101, that we took this railway over.

D7101: Shhh, D199! It's their railway, after all.

D199: Not for long. Our controller says 'Steam engines spoil our image'.

Duck: Of course we do! We show what frauds you are. Call yourselves engines? If anything happens, you care nothing of your trains! You just moan for a fitter. We bring it home, if only on one cylinder.

D199: Nothing ever happens to us. We are reliable. And...

(The engines whistle loudly)

D199: How rude!

D7101: You asked for it. Now shut up!

Narrator: The next day, Henry was getting ready to travel home. But there was a problem.

Henry's Driver: Your regulator is jammed wide open, Henry. I can't mend it until you've cooled down. But we've got steam, so we'll use your reverser.

Henry: (Groans)

Narrator: So Henry had to puff home tender first.

Henry: I just hope none of my friends see me traveling like this. They'll just laugh at me.

Narrator: When Henry reached a signal box, he stopped and whistled for a road. On the opposite of the box, on the up line stood D199 with a train of oil tankers.

Henry: Worse and worse. Now Old Reliable will laugh at me too.

Signalman: Hello, Henry. I'm glad you're here. Please take this Spamcan away. He's failed. The Limited his behind, and all he does is wail for a fitter.

D199: Spamcan! I'm...

Signalman: Stow it! Or I'll take my tin-opener to you!

Henry: (Laughs)

Narrator: Henry couldn't help laughing, as he pulled the train out of the way. D199 didn't help. He just sulked. The Limited rushed by with a growl.

Henry: Look, Spamcan. There's your little pal.

D199: (shuts his eyes tight) I hope he didn't noticed me.

Narrator: D7101 hadn't noticed. He had troubles of his own. His coaches seemed to be getting heavier.

D7101: (Growls)

Narrator: Engines have a pump called an ejector which draws air out of the train's brake pips to keep the brakes off. If it fails, air leaks in and the brakes come one, gently at first, then harder and harder. D7101's ejector had failed. The brakes were already leaking on while he passed Henry. D7101 struggled on for half a mile before being brought to a stand.

D7101: (Growls)

Henry's Driver: Well, well, well! Did you hear what the signalman said?

Henry: (Chuckles) I thought they'd be laughing at me. Now, the joke's on them!

Henry's Driver: Moving two dead diesels and their trains? That's no joke for a railed engine. Do you think you can do it?

Henry: I'll have a good try. Anyway, D7101's better than old Spamcan. He did try to shut him up last night.

Henry's Driver: Come on, then. We mustn't keep the passengers waiting.

Henry (to D199): Get moving you!

Narrator: Henry gently buffered up to the express. While the two drivers talked, his fireman joined his front brake-pipe to the coaches.

Henry's Driver: It's better than we thought, Henry. D7101 can pull if we keep the brakes off. So the only weight we'll have is Spamcan's goods.

Henry: That's a mercy.

D7101: (Honks his horn) Are you ready?

Henry: (Whistles) Yes, I am!

Narrator: And so, with D7101 growling in front, and Henry puffing in the middle, the long cavalcade set out for the next big station. Donald and Hiro were waiting. They cheered as Henry puffed past. He braked the coaches thankfully. Spamcan and the tankers trailed far behind. The passengers buzzed out like angry bees.

Sir Topham Hatt: Calm down, everybody! Henry arrived and helped you here. If it hadn't been for him. The train would've been delayed much longer.

Narrator: So the passengers forgot to be cross and thanked Henry instead. They even took his photograph and called him an 'Enterprising Engine'. Hiro backed down onto the passenger train.

Hiro: Well done, Henry! That was some marvelous work you did getting the train here.

Donald: Indeed! Good work, Henry!

Henry: Thank you, both of you.

Narrator: Donald was to take the goods.

Sir Topham Hatt: Return D199 to the mainland. I'll write my views later.

Narrator: Henry and D7101 went away together.

D7101: I'm sorry about last night.

Henry: That's all right. You did shut Old Reliable up yesterday.

D7101: And, made a fool of myself today too.

Henry: Rubbish! A failed ejector might happen to anyone. I'd lost my regulator.

D7101: You! Failed? And yet..."

Henry: Well, emergency, you know. Trains must get through.

D7101: Hmmm.

Narrator: Sir Topham Hatt decided to give D7101 a second chance. He had good manners for a start, so Henry didn't find it hard to teach him their ways. D7101 finds them different from those of the mainland, but much more interesting. He is now quite a useful engine. They teased him at first because of his growls. They even said he was like a bear. He still growls, but not because he's cross, but because he can't help it. His name "Bear" has stuck, and he really likes it.

Bear: It's nicer than just a number. Having a name means that you really belong.
