Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Stepney, a very old engine, is taking the museum cars to the Natural History Museum. James and Henry think that not only is Stepney an old "bucket of bolts," but that the museum cars carry "just a lot of old nonsense." When Stepney breaks down, Thomas doesn't want to get stuck being seen with the old dinosaur bones and relics of the past. What will his friends think, and more important, what will the children say? Thomas is in for a big surprise!

Stepney was one of the oldest engines on the whole Island of Sodor. He had seen a lot and had interesting stories to tell. Thomas’ favorite story was about Sir Topham Hatt as a little boy.

He heard James call out, “Don’t let them mistake you for that old junk and send you to the scrap yard.” All the way to Tidmouth, Thomas worried about what everyone would say about his old Special.
