Early Bird is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the CGI television series.

Plot

Whilst Percy is being repaired, Thomas is given the job of taking the post train. He refuses to ask Percy for help with his new job and as a result he causes confusion and delay by whistling loudly and waking up the sleeping engines. The next day, Thomas notices Mavis making mistakes at the quarry. The Fat Controller tells Thomas that by whistling he is waking up all the engines and then they are too tired to work. That night, Thomas asks Percy for advice who tells him that he must do his rounds silently. So, Thomas does his run as quiet as a mouse and then falls asleep himself!
