|Too Hot for Thomas|
Too Hot for Thomas is the twenty-fifth episode of the eighth season.
It is a hot summer day and James and Toby are taking children to the beach. Thomas wants to help, but he has to deliver ingredients to the ice cream factory, which he finds unfair. On his way, he is made late by James crossing the intersection and having to wait for Toby to pass when he gets diverted into a siding. Trying to rush, Thomas tries to leave the chocolate factory before the shunter can take off the truck's brakes, but only breaks a coupling and cocoa blasts everywhere from the pressure. Once Thomas' truck is refilled, he sets off and thinks he can take some children to the seaside. But an unfair catch comes into his work again; the ice cream factory manager asks him to wait for the ice cream to be finished and take it to the beach. When Thomas arrives, the children cheer for Thomas because he delivered the ice cream. Despite not being able to deliver the passengers, this makes Thomas very happy.
