It was a very busy day at the Sodor Steamworks; 'Arry and Bert needed new valves and Percy needed repainting. Then, the Fat Controller arrived with Gordon who was suffering from a blocked funnel. Victor didn't want to let anyone down and asks Gordon to back up. The soot from his funnel covered the Steamworks - and Sir Topham Hatt's Car! Victor, who was very sorry, realises he needs to get organised. First, 'Arry and Bert's valves were replaced. Then Victor tells Gordon he'll be next to be fixed. He then tells Percy that his repaint will have to wait as Edward's problems are more important. Later, everything was under control and Kevin assures Victor that he is a "Really Useful Engine"!
