|Season One, Episode Twelve|
|Air date||Friday 22nd April 2011|
Snowstorm is the twelfth episode of Season 1.
Christmas time on the island is fast approaching and the locomotives on Thomas' Branch Line become more busy with passengers and freight before any trouble can be seen and Daisy having extra coaches on her train. The Tankers' brakes have been frozen by the snow and Percy shoots off derailed on the snow as the Troublesome Trucks giggle at him without any sound of that. The cause is the coupling had snapped between Percy and the first tanker. Thomas carries the Breakdown Train to the site of Percy's accident and is angry at Percy for the trucks doing this to him and Toby by missing the platform at Elsbridge station. At the sheds in Tidmouth, they are talking about the chaos of it and after Thomas' driver leaves with his Santa Claus costume, the locomotives are thrilled of a very special service before Toby asks Daisy about the plan and the stationmaster's son at Elsbridge talks to her after Thomas told him about the plan he had made.
She leaves the trucks in a siding and Toby comes to pick them up after fearing a man might be punishing them. Toby later takes some trucks down the main line where the snow grows worse with a snowstorm expecting right now and is black like aerial bombardment. Bad news at Tidmouth is that the express and rail traffic stop working because of a snowdrift at Henry's Tunnel. With a plan made by the locomotives, they are moving down towards the main line this time from Tidmouth and encountering smaller snowdrifts. They destroy the snowdrift at Henry's Tunnel and Daisy arrives to take them into Knapford station going north.
From Identity, Alfred and Henry arrive at Knapford with the B12 saying to Sir Charles Topham Hatt that he can have another go at that snowdrift which the Fat Controller agrees to do but declines. Donald and Douglas arrive and start to move towards Henry's Tunnel when the Fat Controller stops them once again. The branch line locomotives arrive at the station and the passengers get off the train. The Fat Controller, as Henry and Alfred set off, arrive to tell the branch line locomotives that Christmas is still on and the locomotives were really useful indeed.
