Episodes [edit] Salty's Secret

Salty, a new dockyard diesel engine, is summoned to the rock quarry to help Bill, Ben and Mavis with an important job. He is saddened because he cannot be near the sea, but gets on with the job without fuss. Bill and Ben think that the trucks will give Salty a bad time, but they are proved wrong when he shows he can handle them with ease.

Cranky doesn’t listen, but the arrival of Bill and Ben puts him in an even ‘crankier’ mood.

However, Sir Topham Hatt replaces Cyril with a very noisy foghorn, and the engines are sad when Cyril is replaced. Soon the foghorn makes a lot of noise as Percy passes with his train, but when he is out of sight a landslide begins and crushes the foghorn, so there is no way to warn the engines of the fallen rocks.

[edit] Jack Jumps In

Thomas has a special delivery to take to the quarry--a new front loader, by the name of Jack. He is smart, good-looking, and strong. But he is overly boisterous and eager. Upon his arrival at the quarry, Jack goes to all the machines of the Pack (the nickname for the construction company) and asks them if he can help or have a job. One by one, they all direct Jack to Miss Jenny Packard, the Pack's equivalent to Sir Topham Hatt. Miss Jenny calms Jack down rather than giving him a job on the spot ("Safety First", she tells him). Jack hangs around, and gradually makes friends with the machines, particularly with a green, wheeled excavator by of the name of Alfie. But just when it seems that Jack has been tamed, Oliver (a larger excavator) is asked to move some rocks up a quarry hill/road to a little hopper. With a cry of "I'll do it!", Jack scoops up the rocks in his shovel, and heads up the dirt road with the machines shouting at him to stop and turn back. Jack ignores their calls, and as a result, he tips over on the road and slides down the hill on his side in a pile of sand. Miss Jenny is indignant with Jack, and tells him firmly and sternly "Safety First means that you don't jump in." Because of this infraction, Jack is temporarily suspended from working. He must now redeem himself to prove his money's worth.

[edit] A Friend in Need

With a chance from Miss Jenny, Jack has been given a trial with the Pack. His first assignment is building a new road under an old railway arch bridge. When he starts out with Alfie, Jack works well dumping rocks into Max the Dumptruck. Then, Oliver the Excavator is asked to move some dirt. Jack sees this and almost moves the dirt, but then he remembers Miss Jenny's instructions. He catches himself, admits to Oliver that this is his [Oliver's] job, and returns to dumping rocks into Max. The rest of the morning runs smoothly until Ned, a clumsy steam shovel, forgets to lower his arm and knocks out some keystones in the arch bridge being worked under. A few pieces of sand start to give way, right as Jack watches. Suddenly, he hears Thomas's whistle-he's headed in the direction of the dangerous bridge! Jack rushes underneath with his shovel raised up against the roof of the arch, which is starting to implode. Thomas's crew realizes hears a warning cry from Jack, shouting that the bridge is unstable. The driver shuts off steam, but it is too late to stop Thomas, who skids onto the bridge. The bridge deck begins to sag under the weight of Thomas. In a desperate attempt, Jack pushes up even harder. He can't hold the bridge up any longer; Thomas and Jack back away, just as the bridge collapses to the ground. In the end, the machines crowd around Jack in the work yard, who is feeling guilty about jumping in. While saving Thomas from impending doom, Jack has bent his arms very badly. He apologizes to Miss Jenny, but rather than scolding Jack, she praises him for keeping Thomas on the rails. As a reward, he is now an official member of the Pack.

[edit] Percy's Chocolate Crunch

A water shortage on the island has reduced the engines' privileges to one washdown a day. This makes Percy rather upset. However, despite the dirty conditions of the railway, he tries to work cooperatively with the Troublesome Trucks. And of course, they only make things worse. Percy is pushed under a coal chute (right as the operator starts pouring the coal), and gusts of wind from Harold the Helicopter's rotor sends piles of ashes flying...right onto Percy! To help cope with the frustration, Percy takes some sugar vans that must be delivered to the Mr. Jolly's chocolate factory. He approaches the factory on the sloped tracks that go up to the loading and delivery dock, which are coated with oil from a leaky freight car. Percy applies his brakes, but the oil makes him skid past the dock and right into the factory wall! There are a series of gloops and splats from the heart of the factory, and Percy pops out the other end, covered in chocolate! He is brought back to the sheds by Duck on a flatcar, and surprises the engines.

[edit] Notes

* The last regular road characters are introduced in this season (until On Site with Thomas and Season 10).
* This was Alec Baldwin's last narration.
   * The term "trucks", in reference to railway wagons, is retained in the American narration for the first time.
   * The story "Faulty Whistles" seems loosely-based "Mike's Whistle", from Small Railway Engines.
   * The new models were less shiny.
   * Aside from future direct-to-video releases, this is the only time "The Pack" is featured on the show.
   * Bertie only appears in one or two episodes.
   * This is John Wright's last season as editor.
   * This is Alec Baldwin's second season to narrate Thomas and Friends.
   * This is the only season to feature two directors.
   * Michael Brandon renarrates No Sleep for Cranky, A Bad Day for Harold the Helicopter, James and the Red Balloon, Gordon Takes a Tumble, Toby Had a Little Lamb and Edward the Very Useful Engine for the US version of this episode on the PBS television broadcast in 2005. Because he renarrated them the background music from the episodes had been revised to the post-Season 8 music.
