The Trouble With Trucks

The Trouble With Trucks

"The Trouble with Trucks" is the first episode of ThomasWoodenRailway's series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Wooden Railway Adventures, and is the first episode of Season 1.


Thomas has worked on his branchline with his two coaches, Annie and Clarabel, for many years, but The Fat Controller decides it's time for a change. Thomas is sent to the Docks to pull trucks while Duck takes Annie and Clarabel. The trucks play tricks on Thomas and bump him down the wrong line. He ends up getting stuck in the Quarry Mine Tunnel. Before he can reverse, Mavis comes around the corner and crashes into Thomas, sending him back down the hill where he derails. Duncan arrives with Rocky and Thomas is soon put back on the rails. The next day, The Fat Controller meets Thomas at Elsbridge Station and decides that Thomas is best-suited to pull Annie and Clarabel, and Duck will take care of those pesky trucks.
