James is fuming because he has to take all the old junk from the big shed to the scrapyard. As he passes by the Fat Controller's house, he sees Lady Hatt hanging out her washing. James has to stop at a signal and he sees Lady's Hatt's washing line fall over and smash. James has an idea and his crew construct a new one for her using a scrap wheel and an axle.



  • The truck James uses to transport the scrap is a first season-style truck.


  • The truck has no face when James leaves the big shed.
