  • Hodge is given a faulty Chug booster. It almost causes an accident.
  • Hoot and Toot are lost in a tunnel, and Olwyn breaks down trying to rescue them.
  • Harrison comes off the tracks in a remote area and is all alone in the forest. He’s eventually found and rescued but not until it’s dark.
  • There is an explosion in Rocky Ridge, and Coco is pushed off the tracks. She is precariously balanced at the edge of a mine shaft, which is deemed as ‘high risk’. She’s saved by the other trains just before the tunnel collapses.
