"Edward the steady, once more at the ready!"
— Edward

Steady Eddie is the second episode of the twelfth season.


Edward is told to take a brass water wheel along the express line to the Waterworks at Great Waterton, but he opts to take the branch line so the people can see him. Although Edward is warned that the line ahead is bumpy, he continues onwards as the school is nearby. He wants the children to see his magnificent waterwheel, but, as he is travelling, the ropes dig in to the sharp sides of the waterwheel. After going up Gordon's Hill, the ropes tear in half, and the waterwheel comes loose. It rolls down the hill, on to some flatbeds Gordon was taking to the Smelters. Edward had to chase Gordon, going along every shortcut he knew. Edward saves it just in time and has it chained on so it will not fall off. Edward delivers the water wheel to the Waterworks, where it is put on display.





  • When Edward goes onto the bumpy track, his front wheels derail.
  • In one shot of Edward on the bumpy track, his whistle is wonky.
  • Edward stops at a red signal right next to the school, but he is seen travelling much further past the school before he stops.
  • Edward and Arthur have the same whistle sound.
  • In the overhead shot of Edward passing the school, Edward's crew is missing.
  • In the first shot when Gordon arrives at the Smelters, a small black spot suddenly appears on the track opposite him.
  • When Edward leaves the Smelter's Yard after the workmen tie the water wheel down, his driver is not CGI.
  • Not all the children at the school are wearing uniform.
