Storm Report is the fourth episode of Season 3, and the twenty-second episode overall.


After the fanfare of Sodor Nightly News being heard as it was broadcasted, Charles West introduces himself with a special report of the storms that hit the Island of Sodor in bad conditions and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher heard it right now. Sir Handel spoke about his story on the Skarloey Railway about the time that at Lakeside, he and Rusty took the passengers through the rainy skies towards the terminus. They had to use the causeway to the station and Rusty's electrical short circuits were causing the train to get heavier due to the diesel's engine exploding at a small rate. The train reached the end of the causeway meeting Rheneas and Peter Sam there before Sir Handel explained what happened before Rheneas took the townsfolk to the terminus. Stepney was at the station with medical facilities and personnel inside his carriage that Sir Charles Topham Hatt ordered to be sent from Tidmouth. Sir Handel finished his meeting and Charles West responded with a break-time for himself.

Bertie the bus was seen in this during Mr. West's break-time hauling passengers, the NWR engines think he's good with them and prefers Sodor fuel as his main petrol for driving across the island. Another fanfare came up this time on the NWR where Bill and Ben were heroic in saving a fishing boat out at sea. It was when the harbour master said that a fishing boat is in trouble and they pulled hard as they can to make it ashore as their theme music was played in the background. After this, the fishermen praised the twins for their effort and Charles West ends the show with a return to normal routines in the next episode since the news report broke out across the Island of Sodor and in Great Britain.



  • The incident mentioned by Sir Handel references the Railway Series episode, Bulldog.
  • WildNorWester mentioned that this episode is slightly experimental.
  • This is the first appearance of Charles West, the Sodor Nightly News reporter.
  • The commercial featuring Bertie the Bus is a parody of the famous Dos Equis beer commercials, featuring "The Most Interesting Man in the World."
  • This is the first episode to not have any narration by the narrator, unless you count Sir Handel and Ben's narrations of their stories.


  • Ben's voice went from a high tone to medium tone, making him sound like James.
