 "Henry and The Brakevan" is an episode from Season 1 of Percy The Small Tank Engine and Friends. The title of the episode orignally came from HenryisGreat15 who was going to use it in the first season of his series Henry & Friends but scrapped the title after deciding his series should have a more sophisitcated title. The episode was written in February, and uploaded to YouTube on July 22.


Henry's brakevan for the Flying Kipper named TODD gets scrapped. Henry is destined to think that The Flying Kipper will never run the same as it did with TODD. When The Fat Controller forces Henry to take the Kipper without Todd. That night Henry met the new Brakevan with the name *BEEP*  Henry takes the Kipper around Sodor. On his voyage Henry began to take some warnings of ice seriously after some ice had hit his funnel from a tunnel. While going over Gordon's Hill, Henry's wheels gripped ice, and while going downhill Henry's driver failed to set the brakes, and Henry skidded towards a sharp turn. He smashed into a gristmill and his train followed. Edward later came with Sir Topham Hatt in a soecial coach (Old Slow Coach.) Sir Topham Hatt began to say a few words before Henry cut him off. Sir Topham Hatt later asks Edward to take hm home because he forgot his wallet.

After a few days, Edward returns with a brekadown train. Within time, the Gristmill is fixed, and so is Henry.
