When Daisy leaves the shed in the morning, she is seen travelling in reverse "to the station". But the station is actually in front of her.

Daisy: Look at me! The latest diesel, highly sprung and up to date! You won't want Thomas' bumpy old Annie and Clarabel now!
Daisy: This is dreadfully smelly! I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
The Fat Controller: Here is Daisy, the Diesel Rail Car, who has come to help while Thomas is indisposed.
Percy: Please, Sir, will she go, Sir, when Thomas comes back, Sir?
The Fat Controller: That depends. Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
Percy: Yes, Sir.
Toby: We'll try, Sir.
The Fat Controller: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
(a milk van is coupled to Daisy)
Daisy: Do they expect me to pull that?!
Driver: Surely, you can pull one van.
Daisy: I won't! Percy can do it! He loves messing about with trucks!
(she starts to shudder violently)
Driver: Nonsense. Come on now. Back down!
(Daisy lurches backwards and crossly blows a fuse)
Daisy: Told you!
(the passengers argue with her, but to no avail)
Daisy: It's Fitter's order.
Passengers: What is?
Daisy: My Fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and examines me carefully. "Daisy," he says, "never, never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves." So that's how it is!
Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense!
Shunter: I can't understand. What ever made the Fat Controller send us such a feeble...?
Daisy: Feeble? FEEBLE?! Let me...!
