Taking Care of Christmas is the sixteenth and final episode of Season 1 STMY. It is the eightieth episode overall.
When Patrick derails at the entrance of The Container Yard, Iris wonders what all of the Christmas fuss is about, as the yard isn't running as efficiently as it can be. Sheffield tries to explain to her why people celebrate it, but she finds out for herself when she helps Patrick back to the sheds, and helps Sheffield shunt coaches for the Yuletide Express that night.
