"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?"

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.

Plot

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 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.
