Identity is the eleventh episode of Season 1.


Winter has arrived and Christmas is just around the corner. The engines are working hard, however Edward tells The Fat Controller that they may need another engine to help. The Fat Controller has an idea. That evening, Henry arrives at the docks to take the Flying Kipper, only to be met by another engine taking the train. At Knapford, Henry meets the engine, Alfred, an LNER engine who came to help when Henry had his accident with the Flying Kipper. The engines argue, which gets broken up by The Fat Controller, and Henry leaves Alfred behind.

Later on, Alfred is asked to take the Yuletide Express because Gordon is delayed. Alfred gets stuck in Henry's Tunnel and Henry pulls him and the train out of the tunnel. Both engines head back to Knapford, where the Fat Controller is waiting for them. Donald and Douglas are ready to remove the snowdrift, but The Fat Controller stops them because another train is coming.
