Upload: Episode 8 - Edward's Jammed Brakes

Hope you enjoyed last week's tale of Percy and his missing mail sacks. However this week we are pleased to release a brand new episode entitled "Edward's Jammed Brakes" This episode takes place on a very special line that wasn't really mentioned in the TV series, but was seen a lot in the Railway Series.

In this episode Edward has been working hard so he is beginning to have some problems from all his hard work. His brakes have begun to groan whenever he uses them. One day Edward has to pick up a train of china clay from Bill and Ben at the china clay works. Edward gets embarrassed when his brakes groan in front of them. The twins think it's funny. Edward is now upset. Later he is taking a passenger train up the branchline to Wellsworth station. He sees Henry at the platform and is afraid that Henry will laugh at him for his brakes. So Edward tries to not let his brakes moan. But instead he over shoots the platform and ends up jamming his brakes hard on. Now Edward really is embarrassed. Donald has to come to the rescue and gets tied up in this whole mess. Watch and see if Donald will be able to take Edward all the way to the works.
Edward's branchline is a unique part of Sodor. In the TV series it isn't really mentioned that it's Edward's, but all the locations appear in the series. In the Railway Series lots of stories take place on this line. Such as "Edward's Exploit" "Bertie's Chase" and many more. The line is connected to the mainline at Wellsworth Station. It then runs southward down Sodor til it reaches Brendham Docks at the end of the line. In the TV series Brendham is the most prominate harbour out of all of them on Sodor and is very busy. Most of the work on Edward's branchline is taking passengers and goods from the harbour to the mainline.
There is another line that stems from Brendham Docks. This branchline within a branchline is the line to the Sodor China Clay Works. Bill and Ben work here and take the chinia clay to the harbour. The twin engines also help out on Edward's branchline and do odd jobs around the docks. The branchline is too busy for just the twins and Edward. So BoCo works mainly on the branchline too and handles lots of the freight on the line. When the line is also extremely busy Donald and Douglas will come and help out too.
Edward's branchline and the china clay works will be appearing again and again throughout the series. So be sure to stop back often to see the latest of what's going on with these engines. Next week we will spend some time with Oliver the great western engine. He is going to have to do Percy's work while Percy is ill. Come back next Thursday to see this new episode "Oliver's Mail Train"
