Tidmouth Trouble is a Fan-Fiction episode.
James is jealous of Thomas for having brand-new shed doors that work really well, so he decides to play a trick on him. That night, James sneaks out to collect some old broken shed doors to replace Thomas', which get installed overnight. The next morning, Thomas can't get out of the shed! As a result, he is unable to do his jobs, and his work is delayed. After spending hours of waiting in the shed, Thomas' crew finally get Thomas out. Sir Topham Hatt is cross at Thomas for not being on time, and Thomas tries to explain to him that someone rigged the shed doors, so that he couldn't leave. Then, James apologizes, and says he was responsible for replacing the shed doors. He was jealous that Thomas got new shed doors, so he wanted to look more splendid than him. He didn't mean to trap Thomas. Sir Topham Hatt is proud of James for owning up, but still cross with him for playing a trick on Thomas. He orders James to do Thomas' jobs, as well as his own. He then apologizes to Thomas and tells him he can have the rest of the day off. Thomas is happy, but would like to spend his day off somewhere outside the sheds!
