Thomas-saurus Rex (Thomas & Friends) (Pictureback(R))
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."

Thomas is in for a big surprise!

Both of the engines laughed. Thomas wondered what they were talking about. Percy was waiting when Thomas got to the Shed. “Did you see Stepney?” asked Percy. “Did you see what his Special is?” “No, but I heard Gordon and James
they got to town, little Topham Hatt was covered head to toe in coal dust. He was very dirty. And so was Grandfather, so Mother couldn’t be cross. They both laughed—and even had their picture taken!
