Episode Guide »
The Monster of Brendamdocks - Percy is at Brendam Docks to pick up new table and chairs for Dowager Hatt's house. The boat is late so Percy has to wait. Fog rolls in and the story says that's when the Monster of Brendam can be seen. Percy tells the other engines about the Monster and causes chaos around the island when the engines mistake each other for the Monster! Once back at Brendam Docks, Cranky reminds Percy that there is no such thing as the Monster of Brendam. He chuffs back to help his friends. Then, together, they come back to Brendam and there in the swirling fog, they see The Monster! He's tall and creaking! It's Cranky who is the Monster of Brendam and Salty's joke! Flash Bang Wallop - A Photographer arrives on Sodor to take photographs of the engines for The Great Railways of Sodor book. Thomas is determined to be photographed more than Gordon and bursts his way into each photograph, not realizing Percy and James have become derailed. A cross Sir Topham Hatt arrives and tells Thomas about Percy and James being derailed and Thomas has to find a way to put everything right. It is late when they return to Tidmouth Sheds. Gordon boasts about how many photographs he thinks he was in. Thomas doesn't mind. He knows it was more important to help his friends. When the Photographer returns a few days later, Thomas is surprised and delighted to see a front cover photograph of his rescue mission.
