Gordon is a big express engine. He is strong and very fast. But sometimes Gordon likes to show how strong and fast he is, which can sometimes lead him into trouble. One day, the Railway Choice Awards came to Sodor. The Railway Manager came to Tidmouth Sheds.  

RAILWAY MANAGER: The Railway Choice Awards have come to Sodor. Mallard' Manny and Malcolm will be hosting it. At exactly 9:00 pm, the ceremony will take place. I need you all to be there. Oh and I almost forgot, the biggest award this year will be the award for Fastest and Best.     

The Railway Manager left. Gordon was excited. 

GORDON: Srongest and Best! That’s me! 

THOMAS:  im much strogner!

PERCY: You have to get me his autograph. Signed Percy the Small Engine! 

EDWARD: Uh….Percy! He doesn’t have hands. 

PERCY: Oh yeah! Right!    

Gordon imagined seeing the Mallard giving a speed demonstration. The RT News Reporter walked up to him. 

MANNY: And there he is. Our very own Mallard . You haven’t been to Sodor in years. What’s the first thing you plan on doing? 

MALLARD: Well I want to say thank you to all my fans and friends. But what I really want is an express demonstration from that incredible engine from Sodor who won the choice award for fastest and best.  

MALCOLM: Well you’re in luck because here he is! Gordon, the fastest and best and pulls the express. Any tips on pulling the express, Gordon? 

GORDON: The first rule in pulling the express is that you have to be loud, fast and grand. You have all three of those qualities. So be prepared for the pull of your life.     

That night, The Railway Manger introduced Mallard. 

RAILWAY MANGER: Staff and engines, introducing our host, Mallard! 

MALLARD: Good evening everyone! I am happy to be here tonight. I will hosting the awards for the event.     

The lights came on and the whole area was illuminated. Mallard addressed the first award to start the ceremony.  

MALLARD: And our nominees for  Blueist Engines are……….Gordon , Thomas the Tank Engine, Edward, Fergus, Belle, Timothy,Wilbert, Hank,Jaakko, Sidney, Migty Mac and Sir Handel.     

He announced the winner. 

MALLARD: And the winner is…………..THOMAS THE TANK ENGINE!!!!    

Thomas puffed up. 

THOMAS: I’d like to thank Sir Topham Hatt and all my fellow railway companions. I am  a really useful engine  indeed. im Thomas and im the number 1 blue engine

Thomas puffed off.

Mallard announced several more awards. Thomas won the award for best branch line. Molly won the award for biggest female engine , much to Emily’s disappointment. Duncan  won the award of being the best whistle engine. Salty won the award for best truck shunting record. Though he is old and stricken in years, he still talks about it. Then it was time for the Really useful  award. 

MALLARD: we have a really useful engine here and thats Thomas   

All the engines cheered for Thomas. 

PERCY: Way to go, Thomas my best friend

DEREK: Tell him I said What’s Up, ok!  

MALLARD: As you know, it was his brother, Flying Scottsman’s idea. So without further to do, lets introduce the fastest and best award.      

Sir Topham Hatt seemed a bit discouraged as he held the winning name up to Mallard’s face, then Mallard’s jaw dropped . 

MALLARD: Uh……….. 


MALLARD:Thomas the the tank engine!! .    

Said the Mallard bitterly. Gordon cheered, oblivious to the fact that he wasn’t chosen. Molly who was there, puffed up beside him. 

MOLLY: Uh…..Gordon! It’s not you! 

GORDON: What!    

Then he looked up to the front. Thomas,the  tank engine was puffing up to accept the Express.

THOMAS: Oh I can’t believe it! 

DEREK: That Little Blue Tank Engine won. 

CECE: Great! The award is the Express 

MANNY:your going to use The Express line 

Gordon was shocked Thomas was going to use his express line 

Thomas smiled

THOMAS: Thank you all very much. I may  be little but im very storong  and Im  sure , i can pull the express

MALLARD: now you can pull more coaches then ever!.  

THOMAS: there not too heavy for me

No one cheered. Save the diesels.  

THOMAS:  but what will happen to my branchline and who will pull Annie and Clarebel?

MALLARD:Percy will work on your branchline and pull Annie and Clarebel

GORDON: your not strong enough to pull the Express

GORDON:Thomas is just being cheeky

and raced by Sir Handel

they were amased

Mavis was also on the same line as Thomas she had overheated her driver and fire man were talking about how to get her to The Dieselworks as fast as they could.Thomas was coming her way

Thomas tried to warn Mavis with his whistle but he couldn't because Gordon bumped him so hard that his whistle had come loose


THOMAS: Watch Out Mavis!

Thomas swerved into a siding away from Mavis

Thomas tried to put on his brakes but it was too late Thomas smashed the buffers and derailed




then Mavis puffed up crossly to Gordon

  • No announcement is made to Derek that Spencer and the diesels had cheated. Somehow, he already knows.
  • Why couldn't Derek tell Sir Topham Hatt.
  • With all the rushing around Thomas proofed that he can be stong,
