Frank and the Trucks

Frank and the Trucks

"Frank and the Trucks" is the eleventh episode of ThomasWoodenRailway's series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Wooden Railway Adventures, and is the eleventh episode of Season 1.


Since Frank is new to the Island of Sodor, Sir Topham Hatt has yet to decide what his job will be. One day while talking to Cranky at the Docks, Frank witnesses some troublesome trucks push Duke into the ocean. When Duke asks Frank to go get help, Frank laughs and rolls away without doing anything. S.C.Ruffey, the leader of the troublesome trucks, sympathizes with Duke because he is old, and vows to pay Frank out. When Frank gets to the top of Gordon's Hill, the trucks push him down very fast before Frank can do anything. He is shocked as to why the trucks would do such a thing. Before he can stop, he enters the Yard and smashes into Percy's milk train. Frank demolishes both trains and ends up underneath Percy. While waiting for the breakdown train to arrive, Frank realizes the irony of the situation and learns his lesson.
