Episode 48: James Slips Up


Stan Marsh the Tank Engine and Kyle Broflovski the Great Western Engine arriving at Brendom Docks, most likely for a frieght train, and upon realizing this, James goes into an excited frenzy to get Stan and Kyle's autograph. The two engines run away from him, accidentally leaving Stan's engine belt inside. James finds it, and tries to give it back, but they pull away before he can do so. James decides to play with the belt. He discovers the "Small Ray", and starts shrinking the items. Gordon sees James giving tiny coal to tiny lorries. Upon realizing that James has stolen the belt, he plans revenge and threatens tell on him. In order to stop Gordon, James shrinks him, and promises to find a way to return him to normal.

James goes to Henry for help, and Henry mistakes Gordon for a "Gordon Action Figure" and starts playing with him, even after realizing that it is the real Gordon. Henry then suggests to turn the "S M" upside down, setting the belt to S W for "Super Wumbo". James questions the validity of this, but after Henry responds by stating the many uses of "Super Wumbo", James is convinced, but then accidentally shrinks Henry. Seconds later, engines start coming and greeting to James, making him shrink them so that they can't tell Stan on him. Eventually, James has shrunken everyone on the Island of Sodor, and stuffs them into a jar. He then realizes that he has shrunken Stan and Kyle as well. Gordon once again threatens to tell Stan on James, but Stan tells him that James did it by accident, and tells James that he undertands, which makes James happy again. Eventually, James gets the idea to shrink Sodor itself, which satisfies the engines, who see no discernible difference from their previous lives in living in a miniature Sodor. Finally, James shrinks himself, and the tiny city begins celebrating. The closing scene shows Diesel returning to Sodor from a vacation. He is surprised to see that he is now taller than Sodor.
