Episodes [edit] Emily's New Coaches

Thomas makes the acquaintance of a new beautiful tender engine called Emily, who has arrived on the island to assist (presumably) with mixed-traffic duties. Sir Topham Hatt sends her away to learn her new route, and is instructed to take some coaches with her. With only Annie and Clarabel available, Emily sets off with them but is confused and upset when nobody returns her friendly whistles, especially Thomas. It is not until Oliver informs her of her mistake that she realizes what has happened, and rushes to apologise. Meanwhile, Thomas pulls a set of shining new coaches home from the docks; sulkily presuming they are replacements for Annie and Clarabel. Whilst this is going on, Emily comes across Oliver stranded on a crossing with Thomas approaching not far away.

Sir Topham Hatt meanwhile agrees that something must be done with the bridge and the engines must instead take a longer route. But when Duncan finds himself low on coal and learns that the only coal bunker remaining is on the other side of the bridge, he takes a risk and crossing it, only to become stranded with the wooden supports giving way below him. Rusty comes instantly to the rescue, pulling him away just in time as the entire bridge collapses. Duncan learns a grave lesson to put trust in Rusty from then on.
