Super Rescue is the tenth episode of Season 1.


One evening, two visiting Diesels arrive at the shed. D199 said that the railway will soon be run by diesel engines as they are more efficient, but Patrick, on the other hand, is kind and tells D199 to shut up. Next day, Henry was rolling home tender first, as his injector had failed. At a signalbox, he saw D199 who had broken down too. He helped D199 and his train out of the way so the Limited could pass through. However, Patrick also broke down and Henry had to help them both to the next station. Gordon took the Limited to Barrow, and Donald took the tankers.



  • This episode references the Railway Series story and was one of WildNorWester's favorites. His other favorite episode was Escape. Ironically enough, both railway series stories are in the same book, Enterprising Engines, and they are also back-to-back.
  • This episode replaced Special Delivery.
  • Patrick and Gordon were used in place of Bear and Flying Scotsman, as there were no models of these characters available at the time.
  • This is the second episode to be based on a Railway Series story made by Reverend W. Awdry.
