The Diesels Strike Back
Important goods go to the Scientific Research Facility on the Island Of Sodor, and some of them are dangerous. Much of these trains are pulled door diesels.
At the Diesel Works, Diesel 10 had a meeting with several other diesels. "What has been happening?" Diesel 10 asked the others.
"Thomas just got out of the steam works, and is the fastest engine on sodor." D261 said. He was the diesel that sucked up an inspector's hat during Stepney's visit to Sir Tophamm Hat's railway.
Arry, and Bert spoke next, "Gordon is going to take a special visitor on a tour of the island in a few days."
"This is all bad!" Diesel 10 shouted, "Is there any good news for us?"
"I've got some good news." zei Diesel. "A load of special diesel fuel is bound for the Scientific Research Facility, and I'm to pull it."
"How is that good?" Asked Diesel 10.
"This fuel can make us stronger, and faster. Instead of bringing it there," Diesel answered, "I'll bring the fuel here, but we've got to hide the cars in case anyone tries to find it."
"Brilliant!" zei Diesel 10 in excitement. "We must have that fuel no matter what."
The volgende day, Diesel was at the docks where he would take the fuel. While waiting for his train to be loaded, Thomas and eend steamed up. "That fuel you're carrying looks very important." Puffed Thomas.
Diesel didn't say anything. He didn't like Thomas, and he definitely did not like Duck. "I don't think he can pull it though," Laughed Duck.
"Be quiet." Demanded Diesel. His train was loaded, and he left the docks immediately. Thomas, and eend chuckled, and continued with their work. They didn't know what Diesel was up to.
At the diesel works, the diesels were anxious.
"Where is he?" Splatter asked. "Maybe he crashed." Replied Dodge. "Or maybe," Continued Splatter, "He got caught trying to steal the fuel cars."
"That's enough." exclaimed Diesel 10, "Diesel is on his way here as we speak." And he was. Diesel arrived with the fuel. They hid the freight cars, and all the engines got refueled with the special fuel. Then, they set off to work.
Henry was pulling a train up Gordon's heuvel when D199 passed door with a train much heavier then Henry's. "Who's the spam can now?" He zei happily.
Meanwhile Francesca was shunting cars while Diesel was shunting his cars very fast. "You steamies should retire." zei Diesel, and set off with his train. Francesca was very upset.
Duck, and Oliver were talking when Arry, and Bert pushed them off the rails. Then, the twin diesels left in a flash. "Well, bust my boiler." eend said. Oliver was cross, "We shouldn't have to put up with this."
The diesels were doing their work quickly, which gave them a lot of time to cause confusion, and delay. When Sir Tophamm Hat got all his engines at Tidmouth Sheds, they had a meeting.
"Those diesels are up to no good again." zei James, "Just look what they did to my paint! One of the diesels pushes a tar wagon into me, and made another car of feathers crash into me." The feathers stuck on the tar that was spilled on James.
"Two of them pushed me, and Oliver off the tracks." Huffed Duck.
"And Diesel didn't deliver the special fuel to the Scientific Research Facility." Nikki told them.
"What do u mean?" Sir Tophamm Hat asked.
"Ah heard one of the workers saying that the fuel wasn't delivered." Nikki replied.
"Hmm. I see." Sir Tophamm Hat was thinking of a plan. "Sean, you're going into the diesel works, and go look for anything suspicious. None of the diesels have seen u before, so you're the perfect choice."
"You got it." Sean answered, and he was just about to leave the sheds, but Sir Tophamm Hat stopped him. "Not yet," He finished, "You will go tomorrow morning. I have a feeling the special fuel cars are being hidden there."
