When the little engines were clearing their railway of leaves and broken branches, Peter Sam's trucks broke away and fell into the creek. Duncan teased him about the incident. This made Rusty annoyed, in which he told a spooky story to Duncan. According to Rusty's story, an engine once crossed the old iron bridge while returning home, but he fell off the bridge and into the creek. During the dry season, Elizabeth once helped to remove a fallen branch from another section of the creek.
