James' Fast Train is an upcoming episode from the 25th season.


James has to take a slow goods train across Sodor. He is dignified. He then has an idea. He decides that if he puffs fast, no one will notice his train. So James zoomed down the line. Edward was very dizzy watching James roll past Tidmouth Sheds. Toby also got scared by James. James thought his plan was working.

Murdoch and Arthur were working in the yards. A truck from James' train uncoupled due to the high speeds. Arthur moved out of the way. The truck crashed into Stepney. But James didn't know.

Bulstrode was at the docks. Percy was taking his cargo on some flatbeads. Some pipes fell off James' train and crashed into Percy. Salty chuckled.

Gordon was going up his hill. But he got stuck halfway up. James was behind him. Gordon stared at his train. He laughed. Because Gordon couldn't leave his spot, the engines passing by laughed at James.

Finally, Henry got Gordon up the hill. It was late when James arrived at Tidmouth. The engines looked at him. Emily called James a hunk of scrap. James left the sheds. The engines angrily looked at Emily. However, Diesel had actually said it in a different voice. He laughed quietly.
