- "What a right royal show-off, rushing past us like that!"
Speedy Spencer is a magazine story.
Spencer is visiting Sodor with his owners, the Duke and Duchess of Boxford. He speeds very fast past Daisy and Henry, blowing smoke in their faces and leaves them most annoyed. A few days later, there is a road race across the island and rally cars start arriving from the Mainland. The cars soon start taking test laps around the course and George begins teasing the engines; they can not compete with the rally cars. Henry and the other engines end up fuming, when they hear a shrill whistle. They tremble and Spencer roars through like a bullet. George stares in amazement as Spencer overtakes the rally cars with ease. Everyone agrees that it is really useful after all that Spencer is so speedy.
