Astoundingly, on December 22, the Ffarquhar, Little Western, Wellsworth, and Norramby engines break dowm. Thomas and Molly are left to run the branchlines and the special Branchline Express. To reach Arleburgh West from Norramby, they have to take the big three hills.

Narrator: A man stood at a station. He checked his wristwatch urgently. This man is Sir Topham Hatt, the controller of the NWR. He's waiting for his engines, but they're not here yet. But then almost thirty engines thundered into the station.

Thomas: Sorry we're late.

Duck: We got snowed in!

Arthur: We couldn't leave.

Sir Topham Hatt: Never mind that. At least you're here.

Narrator: Then, a man in a black suit, gray trousers, and a tie jumped Sir Topham Hatt.

Man: Die, o evil imposter!

Narrator: And so he died.

Sir Topham Hatt: Sorry. That's an imposter dying on the ground.

Edward: We'll take your word.

Henry: Do we have jobs?

Sir Topham Hatt: Yes. Donald, Douglas, Boco and Barry, you shall clear the lines.

Gordon: Um, sir, am I ---

Sir Topham Hatt: No. You and Spencer shall pull the Express. Edward, Henry, James, Eagle, and Oliver will take trucks of coal to the CFR and the SR. Daisy, Flora, Bill, Ben, and Whiff, you shall operate Duck's branchline. Salty, you and Billy will help Neville, Dennis, Zack, and- err, where's Harley?

Harley: On time. No one smoking. A freaking signal fell on the line.

Sir Topham Hatt: You six will operate Norramby. Mavis, Harvey, Rosie, and Bridget, you will work at Ffarquhar Quarry and the China Clay Quarry. And Thomas, you, Molly, Emily, Stanley, and Diesel will run your branchline.

Narrator: Thomas was most upset. Diesel was an idiot who hated steam engines.

Thomas: Let's go.

Part 2 Sir Topham Hatt: Where have you been! I have a surprise! Well actually, six surpirises.

Narrator: He pulled at a curtain.

Sir Topham Hatt: Meet Danielle, Felicia, Emmy, Gabriella, Kathry, and Lucy. For you.

Percy, Stanley, and Neville: Thank you, sir!

Narrator: They puffed away with their coaches. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt came to Thomas' branchline.

Sir Topham Hatt: Why are you still in the shed?!

Thomas: Their injectors are jammed, Daisy didn't get oil, her brakes broken, Flora's coal is foul; she's sick.

Sir Topham Hatt: As for you?

Thomas: I'm good.

Sir Topham Hatt: We have to go to Duck's branchline.

Narrator: They sailed through Tidmouth and raced past Haltraugh.

Duck: Good day.

Oliver: We can't work, we've got foul coal.

Sir Topham Hatt: You too?! Thomas, to Wellsworth Shed.

Narrator: Off they went.

Sir Topham Hatt: Is everyone in working order?

Edward: The coal man put oil in my tender.

Bridget: The water tower had sludge in it.

Bill and Ben: We got it too.

Boco: They poured water in the oil tanks.

Edward: We can't work.

Sir Topham Hatt: {sighs} To Norramby. Quickly.

Narrator: They got there in minutes.

Molly: Hello.

Neville: We've no coal.

Dennis: I got watery oil.

Molly: I can work.

Sir Topham Hatt: Follow me.

Narrator: They puffed away.

Sir Topham Hatt: as you can see, you need too pull the train.
