Watch the Clock is a magazine story.
Stephen waved to the Fat Controller as he walked happily through the station. He had been shopping at Knapford and bought a brand new watch. As he leaned forward to let his grandfather have a better look, Stephen dropped his prized watch into an ash pit. Luckily, the ashes were cold and one of the firemen carefully dug down into the ashes until he found the smart green watch box. Stephen eagerly thanked the fireman and decided to put the watch on for safe keeping.
The Fat Controller knew it was almost time for him to attend a meeting at the control room. He took out his pocket watch, but it had stopped! The Fat Controller was worried he might be late, but Stephen allows his grandfather to look at his new wristwatch. He found he wasn't late after all!
- The Fat Controller's speech bubble in the final illustration does not make sense as Stephen does not need a new watch.
