Edward feels sad that the big engines boast that the driver will only want strong engines like them, however the driver feels sorry for the little blue engine and asks him for a day out, which made Edward feel happier to be out again. He works hard all day pulling the coaches, who thought he was very kind, and his driver is very pleased of Edward. That night, he tells the other engines that he is going out again the next day before he fell fast asleep after a hard day's work.
The following day, Gordon is still boasting to Edward in the shed as he sets off to do his next job. Later Edward went off to shunt trucks into place, meanwhile Gordon feels crosser as he pulls a lot of dirty trucks instead of shining coaches - much to his dismay. Soon there was trouble, Gordon is stuck at the half of the hill and still feeling crosser than ever. Edward and his crew came to Gordon's aid by pushing the train up the hill, although Gordon realises that he have found himself at the top, races downward and didn't wait to say thank you to little Edward, who was left behind and out of breath. He ran on slowly to the next station, where his crew were very pleased with him for his efforts, and his driver rewards him with a beautiful coat of blue paint with red stripes.
