It was a bright, sunny day,

and the island of sodor

was bustling with activity.

The engines were carrying

passengers and goods

up and down every line

on sir topham hatt's railway,

except thomas' branch line,

which was closed for repairs

to a damaged bridge.

Instead of working

on his branch line,

thomas had been sent

to the sodor china clay pits

to work with bill and Ben.


Is anybody here?



Hey, wait for me.



Hello, Ben.

You took your time, thomas.

Your cars are over there.

Don't be silly, Ben.

Thomas isn't strong enough

to pull those cars.

Of course I am.

Oh, hey, stop.


what's got into you cars?


The cars aren't pulling you,


It's thomas that's pulling you.



Timothy was the little

oil-burning engine

that worked at

the clay pits too.

Bill and Ben had played a trick

on both him and thomas.

Oh, don't mind them, thomas.

Bill and Ben are always

playing tricks on other engines.

I know all about bill and Ben

and their tricks, timothy.

You have to admit, though,

that was a funny one.

Cars can be troublesome,

but they don't usually have

that much pull.

You'd best be careful, thomas.

If a storm comes,

the heavy rain can make

the clay walls unstable.

Thanks, timothy.

I'll be careful.

Timothy was right.

I do need to be careful.




What could have made footprints

as big as...

look out!


The morning after the big storm

on the island of sodor,

sir topham hatt gathered

some of his engines together

to make an announcement.


We are here to pay tribute

to the bravery

of bill and Ben.

Hello, everyone.

Glad you could make it.

While they may be better known

for playing tricks

on their fellow engines...

you can say that again.

By rescuing thomas

from the landslide

at the china clay pits,

they have proved once again

that they are really useful

and brave engines.

Really silly engines more like.



I'm braver than they'll ever be.

Ah, thomas,

I'd like you to work

at the docks this morning.



yes, sir...

work at the docks.

What's wrong, thomas?

You seem a bit quiet.

Sorry, Percy.



I saw something strange

up at the clay pits yesterday.


What did you see?

I'm not sure.

I think I saw footprints,

but I need to take another look.


Before starting work

at the docks,

thomas went back

to the clay pits again.

He wanted to go back

to where he had seen

what he thought

were big footprints.

But the area was closed off,

and there were danger signs.


Wh-what's that?

Only me.


Oh, I didn't mean to give you

a fright.


Oh, dear.

This is embarrassing.

Haven't you ever seen

a steam shovel before?

Yes, I...

I just didn't hear you coming,

and, well...

I was thinking about

something else.

Me too.

I was thinking about digging.

I love digging.

I love thinking about digging.

Not as much as I love digging,

of course.

Digging is what

I'm all about really, but...


Oh, dear.

This is embarrassing.

I forgot to ask you your name.


you should always

introduce yourself.

It's only polite.

That's what I've always

been told anyway.

- Uh

- shall I go first?

Let me introduce myself.

I'm Marion.

And you are...


Do you always talk this much?

Not particularly.

No, I wouldn't say that.

I'm more of a digger,

to be honest.

Or should I say steam shovel?

That is my proper title,

you know,

seeing as I have a shovel,

and I'm powered by steam.

I'm here to clear the tracks,
