Engine Plates is a magazine story.
People from the local newspaper were at Brendam Bay and Bill and Ben were really excited about being featured in the newspaper. The next day, the newspaper featured an article about the clay pits, but Bill and Ben weren't even mentioned. Next Monday, it rained hard and the twins struggled to get to the china clay to the porcelain factory. They arrive in good time and to say thank you, the factory manager commissions some porcelain plates of Bill and Ben's faces that he is sure will be great sellers.
