"Listen to me. There is nothing wrong with that tunnel. You stuck in it, because you tried to do rock and roll. Tunnels are not dance floors, and you are not a pop star! If it happens again, I shall find way of cutting you down to size. In other words, your career is, uh... *ahem* 'on the line'. Need I say more?"
— Sir Topham Hatt scolding Duncan

Home at Last is the ninth episode of the fourth season. It first aired on Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales in 1996 in the US.


When Skarloey finally returns home, he is met by a new, little Diesel named Rusty. Rusty explains to Skarloey that he helps to mend the line and do 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.





  • When Skarloey says "I understand", his face moves.
  • When Skarloey puffs out of Crovan's Gate, his wheels are moving faster than he is and he has Duncan's whistle sound.
  • When Skarloey puffs past with the works train, after passing a train of coaches, he is missing his eyebrows.
  • When Skarloey pushes behind Duncan's train, he has Duke's whistle sound.
  • As Skarloey comes up behind Duncan's train, there is a spot of light above the carriage in the tunnel.
