Narrator - Ringo Starr (US)
Season 1 - Episode 5
Thomas is jealous that the big engines get to leave the yard to go out on journeys, and longs to do the same himself. His chance comes when Henry takes unwell, and the men cannot fix him in time for the morning train. As the only engine available, Thomas is chosen to take the train in Henry's place and becomes eager to start work at once. However, because they haven't coupled him to the train or the Driver started by mistake, Thomas manages to leave the station without the coaches and sets off along the Main Line on his own. People wave and shout at him -- but he thinks they're just being friendly and carries on until he reaches a 'Danger' signal, and the Signalman explains they have no coaches in tow! Thomas puffs back feeling very embarrassed, but puts things right when he manages to pull the train second time around. But the other engines think it a great joke, and for a long time afterward say, "Look, there's Thomas, who wanted to pull a train but forgot about the coaches!"
