It's Good to be Gordon is the ninth episode of the tenth season.
The Fat Controller tells Gordon that if he is on time with the express and back he will have set a new record. Gordon is happy, but when he takes on Henry's special coal by mistake he leaves with it thinking it would help him with his record. Henry has to use regular coal, and his firebox does not cope. Gordon soon finds out from Thomas and after seeing Henry looking sick he feels so guilty he stops metres outside Knapford and goes back to tell Henry about what he did. Henry forgives him and the two big engines swap tenders under Gordon's suggestion. Gordon is late, but cheers up when Thomas reminds him that he is still the current record-holder.

- This is the last of a few things for drivers:
- This is the first episode to claim that Henry needs special coal after his accident and rebuild. And even if Henry did need special coal, it would be so he could make enough steam. Normal coal was never known to clog his firebox. It is a continuity error.
- The first episode to have two engines switch their tenders.
- Gordon's eyes are wonky in some scenes.
- When Henry says "The workmen are waiting! The workmen are waiting!" his siderods are going slower than Henry's accurate speed.
- The narrator said that Henry's engine didn't like the ordinary coal, but Henry IS the engine.
