Dear Friends,

I had been watching episodes form ITV in 1991 ever since they were released in the past, i see Thomas getting bumped on his branch line, Edward and Trevor hosting up a garden party for the Vicar of Vicarstown, Duck making a wish if he was a horizon engine and see Percy breaking the rules after a switch failure. I hope both he and James learnt a lesson about the "nothing should stop us engines" subject after the punishment for making such a silly situation.

Your Friend, The Author.
