Caught Out is a magazine story.
The Fat Controller arrives at the station with news that the Mainland Railway has challenged him to a cricket match. That day he holds a game to decide which railway staff will join the team. The stationmaster wants to join in too, but he has to wait for Emily to arrive. When she finally does, a ball gets hit into the air and it flies towards her passenger train. The stationmaster runs up and catches the ball, preventing it from hitting a window. The stationmaster is relieved, and also delighted to immediately make it on the team.
