|The Water Wheel|
Thomas & Friends 583
17 February 2010
The Water Wheel is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.
Edward is chosen to deliver the brass water wheel and Gordon is jealous. However, Edward does not take the Express line, he takes the bumpy mainline. The brass rim cuts the ropes securing it and it rolls away down the hill and lands on Gordon's flatbed of scrap headed for the smelter's yard. Edward catches Gordon just before the magnificent water wheel is melted down.
- This story is based on the twelfth season episode, Steady Eddie.
- In one of the photos, Edward is missing his CGI face, as the photo is from the eighth season episode Edward the Great.
