Sodor Goes Pop is a magazine story.
James meets Lorry 1 and Lorry 2 whilst on his way to pick up special pop concert guests from the Harbour. The lorries are being used as 'roadies', carrying the equipment for the stage. At the Harbour the pop star Danny Day is disguised as a fireman to avoid any attention from the crowds. Meanwhile, Thomas is to pick up the band called 'The Sherbets' from Harold at the airport. The pop concert, opened by the DJ Restless Eric, is a huge success. Gordon sees even the Fat Controller's dancing!
