Stepney's Problem

Stepney's Problem

"Stepney's Problem" is the second episode of ThomasWoodenRailway's series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Wooden Railway Adventures, and is the second episode of the Season 1.


One day, Thomas meets Stepney the Bluebell Engine at Elsbridge Station. Thomas is surprised to see Stepney pulling a strange car. Stepney explains that it is the Sodor Museum Fossil Car, and that its purpose is to promote the museum. Stepney quickly remarks that he doesn't enjoy pulling it compared to pulling other trains. As he leaves to go rest for a while, Thomas is still thinking about his friend. When Thomas arrives at the Sheds later that day, he finds that some of the proud engines on the railway are being rude to Stepney. They say that Stepney shouldn't be pulling the Fossil Car because it's meant for an important engine like themselves. Thomas, not liking what they are saying, leaves the Sheds and finds Mavis, Duck, Oliver, and Toad in the Yard. Unlike the proud engines, they agree with Thomas and say that Stepney is doing a great job pulling the Fossil Car. That afternoon, Thomas finds Stepney and assures him not to worry about what the other engines are saying. This makes Stepney feel much better, and Thomas leaves Stepney feeling much better as well.
