Gordon Gets Going! is a magazine story.
Thomas is tired of Gordon boasting about how fast he is. Later, Thomas bursts a valve and the Fat Controller sends Gordon to collect him. On the way home, they see a plane flying about with smoke coming from it. It is trying to make an emergency landing, but it is heading straight for Thomas and Gordon. Gordon pulls with all his might and pulls Thomas clear just in time and the plane safely lands. Now, Thomas is glad of Gordon's speed.
