- "Here comes Gordon!"
"And here comes big strong Henry!"
- ―Thomas and Henry
Big Strong Henry is the seventeenth episode of the tenth season.
Henry is upset when Gordon gets to help Farmer McColl, so Thomas, Emily, and Percy urge him to prove he is stronger. Unfortunately, when Henry tries to take twenty trucks of hay down the hill he loses control and derails. The Fat Controller did not assign him to do this, so while Henry is taking the hay back, the cows in Gordon's cattle trucks wander out, and Henry ingeniously leads the cows back to Farmer McColl using the trucks of hay.

- It is possible that the field where Henry derailed is the same that James and Molly pass at the beginning of the episode, just removing the tree and putting a third track in its place.
- This marks George's last appearance until The Great Discovery, and currently his final episodic appearance.
- In the US, this episode aired before Edward Strikes Out, so the audience would not know who Rocky is.
- In a deleted picture, where Gordon, Molly, and James are passing by, the snowy tree is replaced by a third track.
- The narrator says Percy collected trucks of logs, but there was only one truck.
- Gordon's puffing sound is heard when Thomas says "Here comes Gordon" but it is not heard before or after Thomas said that.
- The narrator says that Henry pulled the trucks out of the sidings, even though they were in a mainline and he just pulled the trucks few centimetres from their original place.
- The track where the five trucks of hay stand dead ends in the bushes.
