Episode Summary

Duncan Gets Spooked
Peter Sam is pulling some trucks, but when he has to stop to take on water, they use the opportunity to break away. The trucks are thrilled to be on their own - until they come to the ravine bridge and fall in. Peter Sam is told off and Duncan has great delight in teasing him. Rusty tries to stop this by telling the story of an engine who tried to cross the Old Iron Bridge but never made it to the other side due to loss of control. Duncan thinks this is a load of nonsense and puffs away, so the Driver and Fireman plan a trick to play on him for when they cross the bridge that night...moreless

    • Duncan: Fancy not securing your trucks on a hill. They'll come back to spook you and your special funnel. WHOO!!
      Rusty: And who's to say you're not afraid of ghosts?
      Duncan: Ghosts? Things that go bump in the night? Rubbish!
      Rusty: Well, I'll tell you a story that'll make your funnel quiver. A long time ago, a little engine was returning home. It was a misty moonlit night. As the engine crossed the old iron bridge, he suddenly lost control, and plunged over the side into the swamps below. He was never found again, but many a workman will tell you that when the moon is full, they have seen the little engine trying to get home. But he never reaches the other side. So, what do you think of that, Duncan?
      Duncan: Pah! Nonsense!

    • Duncan: Haunted bridge. Pah! It's as tame as a pet rabbit.

    • Rusty: "As the engine crossed the old iron bridge, he suddenly lost control and plunged over the side into the swamps below..."
      The accident the engine in Rusty's story had reminded me of an old film called "Ghost Train" in which some villains and their train are plunged into the Mawddach estuary.
