It's winter on the island and when the Fat Controller arrived at Tidmouth Sheds everything was white. He tells the engines that whatever the weather, they still have their jobs to do. Gordon doesn't want to leave the sheds, but the Fat Controller tells him to deliver coal to the docks anyway. As Gordon puffs up the hill, a snowball forms in front of him and it continues to grow and grow! Meanwhile, Thomas is chuffing up the other side of the hill, when suddenly, the huge snowball starts hurtling down the hill towards and hits him, stopping him dead in his tracks. Gordon knew what he had to do and he rushes to the docks to fetch Rocky. Soon, Thomas is put back onto the tracks and Gordon has learnt that snow can be strong and soft, but there's nothing stronger than friendship.
