When Thomas delivers blocks for the rebuilding of the Sodor River Bridge, his brakes stop working.
Thomas is to deliver some specially made blocks for the rebuilding of the Sodor River Bridge. He is so proud to be chosen that when his brakes start to squeak he refuses help from Stanley and continues the journey. Unable to slow down he unknowingly leaves blocks all over the tracks... worst of all he can't stop before the track ends and his front wheels end up hanging over the unfinished bridge. Once back on track, Thomas puts everything right. Gordon is a very proud engine and thinks he knows the railway on Sodor better than anyone, but when taking a short cut he gets lost and won't ask for help. Crashing into Ben, Gordon causes a big log to fall onto the lower track, blocking Stanley's route. Swallowing his pride, he asks for directions to the lower track from every engine he sees and stops Stanley just in time!
