Season 1 - Episode 15
Without Thomas in the yard, the big engines have more work to do and have to shunt their own coaches. Thinking tender engines are more important than they are, Gordon, Henry and James complain bitterly about the situation, feeling they are being treated no better than common tank engines. However, Gordon soon gets a taste of how it is to run as a tank engine when he cannot sit on the turntable properly during a blustery day - and ends up taking his next train backwards. James, feeling more confident of success against the wind, ends up spinning around helplessly like a top - as Gordon watches with glee. But by now, things have come to a head, and the big engines decide to take action aginst their mistreatment and decide to go on strike to get back at Sir Topham Hatt.
