Show Time is a magazine story.
A circus has arrived on the Island of Sodor and all of the engines were excited. Daisy was the first engine to see the circus grounds. She saw clowns, jugglers, trapeze artists, and acrobats rehearsing.
At the sheds, Daisy shared what she had seen with the other engines. Diesel thought it all sounded boring, but Thomas was amazed. The next day, Bertie arrived with three passengers; the acrobats from the circus. They had come to stick circus posters up at the station. Suddenly, Gordon lets off a big puff of steam which blows the guard's scarf onto the station's roof. The guard is about to fetch a ladder, when the acrobats offer to retrieve the scarf. They carefully stand on each other's shoulders and soon the scarf is returned to the guard. All the engines were very impressed. Even Diesel had to agree that it was spectacular.
