"This is the strongest wall I've ever seen!"
— Oliver's operator

Thomas' Trusty Friends, originally titled Another Fine Mess, is an episode of Jack and the Sodor Construction Company


Ned gets bored of clearing rubble from a demolition site. Oliver is trying to knock down a wall with a wrecking ball, but he is unable to. He is fitted with a larger one, but he is still not able to knock the wall down. Meanwhile, Ned asks the foreman if he can help, but he declines by saying that it is Oliver's job. With that, Ned goes back to loading rubble, but he drops it onto the ground because he is thinking about demolishing.

Back at Oliver, they fit him with an even bigger wrecking ball, but he still cannot knock it down. Ned is still thinking about demolishing and does not pay attention. He collides with the chimney which collapses onto the building with the wall that Oliver could not demolish. While the workmen cheer, some wood pieces (having to appear out of nowhere) start falling onto Oliver's roof, the corner of the destroyed building falls down, and Thomas is surprised to see his trucks being fully loaded. Ned is happy that he demolished the building, and asks Oliver if he wants him to demolish anything else. Oliver tells him that he thinks he has been doing enough for one day.
