Little Engines is the first episode of Season 2, and the thirteenth episode overall.


Bill and Ben arrive at the docks one morning, to find all of the trucks already organised. The twins become annoyed when they find out it's Diesel, who has come to work with them for a "special project". He won't tell them what it's about, however, and just calls them Little Engines. Bill asks Edward about the project, to which he doesn't know much about.

One day, Diesel is pulling the last train of supplies for the project up the line and he hits some un-ballasted track. He derails just before the bridge on Edward's Branch Line and Bill and Ben come to help. They take his train up the Little Western and behind Duck and Oliver's shed. They soon arrive at Arlesburgh, only to find they aren't so small anymore.
