―Diesel after pushing his trucks into the sea

Down at the Docks is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.


It is a busy day for Percy and Diesel as they are both heading for work at Brendam Docks. Once there, Diesel rushes to get his jobs done and pushes some of his trucks into the sea. Percy is not having much luck either; he pushes some trucks over the edge of the quayside and into Bulstrode.

At the end of the day, Percy tells Thomas and Duck about his day at the docks. Thomas laughs and remarks that both Percy and Diesel had some "truck trouble".
