It was summertime on the Island of Sodor.
Gordon pulled the express. It was very busy, but Gordon loved the hustle and bustle.
Henry hauled freight cars in the forest. He loved the peace and quiet but he didn't see many people.
Sometimes working in the forest could be very lonely.
Later, Henry pulled into Knapford station. He was delighted to see all the passengers.
But Gordon was not delighted to see Henry.
"Keep your smelly freight away from my passengers," grumbled Gordon.
"It's only logs," chuffed Henry.
"Passengers and freight do not mix," huffed Gordon, and he wheeshed away.
Henry watched the express leave the station.
"I'd like to pull passengers," sighed Henry. "Just for a change."
Henry stopped at the water tower on the edge of the forest.
Children were standing by one of the trees.
"What are those children doing?" Henry asked Thomas.
"That's the old Sodor Wishing Tree," said Thomas. "They must be making a wish."
"A Wishing Tree?" gasped Henry. "How wonderful! Do you think it could make my wish come true?"
"It might," said Thomas, and he puffed away.
Henry rolled up to the Wishing Tree. He took a deep breath and made a wish as hard as he could.
"I wish...I wish I could pull the express, instead of Gordon!" he said.
That evening Sir Topham Hatt came to see Henry.
"Tommorrow, you will pull the express," he said.
"Thank you, sir!" replied Henry.
His wish had come true.
The next morning, Henry puffed cheerfully into Knapford Station.
When the passenger were on board, Henry blew his whistle.
[HENRY WHISTLES]
And he pulled out of the station, but Henry puffed too quickly.
"Go gently," called his driver. "You can bump freight, but you can't bump passengers!"
"Sorry!" puffed Henry.
Henry puffed proudly through the countryside.
"Pulling passengers is a grand job!" he said.
Gordon was in the repair yard. He was being fitted with a new boiler.
But Gordon was feeling lonely; he was missing his passengers.
The passengers were missing Gordon, too. They were having the bounciest, bumpiest ride they had ever had!
When Henry got back to the sheds, Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for him.
"There have been complaints," he said sternly. "Passengers are not like logs - you must be gentle!"
"Yes, sir," said Henry sadly.
Being gentle was very difficult.
Then, Henry saw Gordon.
"My wish has made Gordon go to the repair yard!" gasped Henry.
This made Henry feel very bad.
The next day, Henry had to collect the dining car. He tried his best to be gentle.
But he shunted the dining car so hard that everything flew into the air!
There were more complaints than ever!
Henry didn't want to pull passengers any more. He wanted to wish everything back to normal.
But when he arrived at the forest, Henry didn't know which tree was the Wishing Tree.
"Oh no!" cried Henry. "Which tree could it be?"
Henry didn't know, so he decided to wish on all the trees!
"I wish I could pull freight again!" he puffed.
Then, he moved to the next tree and wished again!
"I wish I could pull freight again!"
Sir Topham Hatt arrived on board Thomas.
"What are you doing, Henry?" asked Sir Topham Hatt. "You are causing confusion and delay!"
Henry told him all about the Wishing Tree.
"Wishing Trees don't run railways," said Sir Topham Hatt. "That's my job!
Gordon just needed some repairs - he'll be back tomorrow!"
Henry was delighted.
The next day, Gordon returned back to work. He looked as good as new.
The passengers were so pleased to see him. They cheered, and cheered, and cheered.
Gordon beamed happily for the rest of the day.
Henry was pleased to be back in the peace and quiet of the forest.
At the end of the day, Henry stopped by the Wishing Tree.
And, even though Sir Topham Hatt told him that trees don't run railways,
Henry wished that he never had to pull passengers ever, ever again.
Just in case!
