“Aaah! That was your fault!
No, it wasn't: it was yours.”
Sir Handel and George

Steam Roller is the twelfth episode of the fourth season. In the US, it first aired on Mr. Conductor's Thomas Tales episode, For the Birds in 1996.

Plot

Sir Handel has recently had some unusual new wheels fitted and he gets teased about them by the others. Peter Sam refers to the time when he got a new funnel and was teased about it, until the other engines learned how useful it is. Sir Handel claims that he can go faster than the others. Skarloey, attempting to bring Sir Handel down to size, tells him of an anti-railway steamroller named George, whom Sir Handel vows to pay out. Sir Handel is later bringing a special train home when he meets George on the road alongside the railway, making it near impossible for him to pass. After the steamroller refuses to move aside, the two have a shouting match which ends when George crashes into Sir Handel's train. The next day, a fence is put up and George is taken away. Sir Handel claims credit, but loses his pride when some boys start lauding him with his race with the steamroller.
