"The Narrow Gauge Engines" is the fifth episode in LNERFlyingScotsman's series Percy The Small Tank Engine and Friends. The episode was the first episode to feature the Narrow Gauge engines rather than the Standard Gauge engines seen in the previous episodes. This  was most likely scripted in early March, ad uploaded to YouTube in August after a long hiatus of uploading the series.


The Skarloey Railway had ordered three new engines to help out, which are Duke, Falcon, and Stuart. Falcon and Stewert change their names to Sir Handel ad Peter Sam after they arrive on the railway. The thin controller asks them to shunt in the yards. While shunting Rhenaes an engine that works on the railway instructs the 3 to take seperate trains of fish. Duke takes his train in a hurry in order to impress the engines on the railway leaving Sir Handel and Peter Sam to share the second train. Duke delivers his train and goes exploring around, meanwhile Sir Handel gets derailed outside of a tunnel and smashes into a support from the bridge above.

Duke then later rode over the bridge and crashed onto the two engines Rhenaes and his friend Skarloey came and soon left eventually returning offscreen with breakdown trains.
