Gordon, James, and the Special Coal is the 26th short.


One evening, Gordon was chuffing down the line, when he passed a truck filled with special coal in it. He reverses back to the truck and looks thoughtfully at it.

That night, James and Gordon were at Knapford acting strange because the coal they had made them high. Henry pulls up and asks what they're doing, Then he noticed the coal and tells them it makes engines stoned, but James and Gordon ignore him. They started to talk about Lady's Magic Railroad and wonder what it was on the other side of the Magic Buffers, so they use Henry as a test run, but the buffers were smashed and Henry was derailed. Once the coal had been worn off, James asked Gordon if there might have been something in the coal they had.



  • This episode marks the first time the engines get high.
