Strawberry Special is a magazine story.
Thomas is kept busy taking holidaymakers to many places on Sodor, like the Sodor Sea Centre and the Farm for Strawberry picking. He comments on the large sizes of the places signs, such as the large strawberry on the sign at the Farm. But the next day the passengers for the farm get on the wrong train, which causes delay. Thomas has an idea, and the next day the passengers know exactly which train to go on- because he had the large strawberry attached to his buffer beam.
