Too Tired is a magazine story.

Plot

There is trouble at the docks. First, a load of pipes Cranky's unloading nearly knocks Oliver's funnel off. Next, Cranky is lifting a sandbag which he drops beside Salty's truck. The next moment, some noisy seagulls land on Cranky's crane arm. He swings round to get rid of them, but his crane arm almost hits BoCo, who has just arrived. The engines work out that it is the seagulls that are keeping the crane awake. They decide that if Cranky doesn't get some sleep soon, he will make their work unbearable. Salty has an idea and rolls over to a fishing trawler where he speaks to the skipper. Soon the plan is put into action and the trawler chuggs out to sea and the fishermen throw a few fish overboard. The seagulls immediately leave Cranky to get their food. Cranky dozes off at once. The engines, who are careful not to wake the sleeping crane, are delighted.
