The Flower Train is a read and colour magazine story.
Sir Handel is taking the Mayor's newly-wed daughter and her husband to the harbour. Meanwhile, James is given the task of taking trucks of flowers to market and Sir Handel is quick to tease him. At the church the newlyweds have flower petals thrown onto them for good luck; some of these end up on Sir Handel. Sir Handel returns to the Transfer Yards still covered in flowers, and Percy and James dub him "the flower train".
- Sir Handel is depicted as a standard gauge engine.
- In the fourth illustration, Sir Handel's funnel is on his saddletank.
