As Jack and May prepare to celebrate their wedding anniversary a tearful May suspects that she might be pregnant. Jack is not pleased. Arnold the train driver, having had an accident learning to drive the new diesel engines, fears that he will be made redundant and the staff, including Cecil, organize a petition as Arnold chains himself to the front of his engine. Fortunately news of his redundancy, like May's pregnancy, turns out to be a false alarm. Written by

Mr Parkin tells Arnold and Ralph off for fighting saying he is running a station, not a holiday camp. This is most likely a reference to Hi-Di-Hi another David Croft comedy and Stared Paul Shane, Jeffery Holland and Su Pollard. See more

Yeah, but what they didn't show you was her getting of at Waterloo covered in soot.
