When Skarloey finally returns home after being repaired, he is met by a new, little Diesel named Rusty. Rusty explains to Skarloey that he helps to mend the line and does odd jobs. Rusty then brings Skarloey back to the shed to meet a glum Peter Sam, who is sad about his accident with the slate trucks and his cracked funnel. Peter Sam tells Skarloey of a rough, rocking and rolling engine called Duncan who came in his absence, who, as discovered minutes later, has just gotten stuck in a tunnel. Skarloey goes to help and, after leaving some workmen behind to fix the tunnel, he helps Duncan home, where the Fat Controller reprimands Duncan, and threatens to 'cut him down to size' should he misbehave again. The Fat Controller is only joking but the threat is enough to make Duncan behave all night.
