Bus, Stop! is a magazine story.
One wintery day, Thomas was waiting at a signal when Bertie raced up. He had to wait at a traffic light too. Thomas bets that he will get to go first, which he does. Later, as Thomas pulled into a siding to collect some trucks, fog began to descend over the Island. Then a lorry races by and spills a lot of sand, blocking the road. Thomas was worried, Bertie was due any minute and the fog would mean that he wouldn't see the sand. Thomas, remembering the traffic lights, has an idea and his driver goes to the brakevan to fetch some lamps. The lamps shine a bright red through the fog and Bertie pulls safely to a stop.
