Stuck in Gear is the fourth episode of the twenty-first season.


After pushing past a fallen tree on the line, a branch gets stuck in Harvey's crane gears. However, he is too shy to ask for help, so instead, he hides himself from the other crane-less engines so he would not get laughed at. After running away from Brendam Docks, Harvey, trying to fix his crane himself by pushing it against a tunnel wall, ends up derailing himself.

Soon enough, Salty arrives and goes to get help. Thomas takes Harvey to the Steamworks, lecturing him that broken-down engines are not made fun of and sometimes a fuss is needed to get the job done. Harvey learns from his lesson and once out of the Steamworks, his crane gear is smoother than ever before.







  • A large rail section has been built at Brendam Docks between Cranky and Big Mickey, which foreshadows the arrival of Carly when she is introduced later in the season.
  • Going by production order, this is the fifth episode of the twenty-first season.


  • Towards the end of the episode, Victor is on standard gauge rails.
  • David Bedella is credited in the UK credits despite none of his characters speaking in that dub. This may have been because Victor was originally supposed to speak.
