Rosie's Funfair Special, retitled Rosie's Carnival Special in American releases, is the third episode of the twelfth season.
Rosie and Emily are pulling a train for a fair, but Rosie wants to pull it alone. When Rosie reaches Brendam Docks she tries to pull the train, but the tension caused by Emily coupled up at the other end snaps a coupling and Rosie leaves with only half the train. More trucks come loose during the journey, causing problems for Bertie, Stepney, and Emily. When caught by the Fat Controller, Rosie fetches Rocky to repair the damage and she and Emily pull the train back together and deliver it to the fair grounds.

- Stepney did not have a CGI face when the truck hit him, but in a rare picture, he did.
- It is possible that Stepney's appearance in this episode was inspired by the fact that writer, Andrew Viner's favourite Railway Series book was Stepney the "Bluebell" Engine.

- In the US narration, Stepney says "Oh my!" but his mouth doesn't match the words.
- When the sugar truck crashes into Stepney, the side of it is upside down.
- In the US narration, Stepney doesn't sound shocked when the truck of pink sugar is about to crash into him.
