Thomas & Friends


Season 3, Episode 8 of 14

Rusty has two jobs. One is to take some workers to put up direction signs along the mountain trails and the other is to take Sir Topham Hatt and his family to the mountains for a walk. Rusty is so keen to be on time for Sir Topham Hatt that he rushes the workers. He makes them finish without checking their work. Rusty takes the Hatt family to the start of their walk and arranges to meet them at the tea rooms later. When the Hatt Family don't turn up at the end of their walk, Rusty is worried. He searches the mountains and when he finds campers at the quarry, fishermen at the coalmine and skiers at the castle, he realizes that the signposts must be wrong! Rusty quickly deduces where the Hatts must be and races off to find them at Hill Farm! They've had a wonderful day, but Rusty has one more job to do. He fetches the workmen to fix the signs. And this time, he doesn't rush them! A shooting star is due to light up the night sky on the Island of Sodor. All the engines are making wishes. When the power on the island fails, Thomas is sent to the power station with some engineers. Thomas puffs across the island but, desperate to see the shooting star, avoids taking any route that will obstruct his view of the night sky. This made his trip longer and longer. Percy gets worried for Thomas and wishes that Thomas returns safely. Thomas, however, has taken such a long route that he's lost! He wishes he could see so he could take the fastest route. Suddenly the shooting star appears and lights up the sky! The light shows Thomas the way and soon the power is fixed! Thomas returns home and he and Percy are delighted that their wishes came true.
