Emily's New Route is the tenth (seventeenth in Australia) episode of the eighth season.
The Fat Controller is handing out new routes for the summer. When Emily feels pleased to be given the job of transporting flour during the summer, poor James is unhappy that he has been given the job of carrying passengers along the Black Loch branch, because of the frequent landslides and the monster rumoured to be living in the loch. After Emily's trucks make her late, Emily is transferred to the Black Loch route, but perseveres, and discovers that the "monster" is really a family of seals, which delight her.
