Jack Frost is the twenty-third episode of the sixth series.
It is an icy winter day on Thomas' Branch Line, and the engines are working very hard. They are not bothered by the cold weather because of their warm fireboxes. Later in the evening, The Fat Controller arrives at Ffarquhar Sheds and announces to his engines that a snowstorm is coming to the island, so he has Percy and Lady collect coal for the stations to keep them warm, and Thomas mischievously warns them about Jack Frost but Lady is dismissive, while Percy is uncertain about Thomas' warning.
When the skies darken, Percy begins his coal deliveries and becomes nervous while trying to understand that Jack Frost isn't scary. At the same time, James is puffing along his route, scoffing over Percy's uncertainty of Jack Frost. When Percy makes his final delivery at Lowery Suddery station to find the stationmaster waiting for him; he needs twice as much coal so Percy gives them the coal from his bunker. Percy's crew then park him in a nearby siding with a lantern as a night light. Percy is worried Jack Frost would find him, but his driver reassures him that Jack Frost isn't scary and that Toby will deliver him a new supply of coal in the morning. After his crew head home for bedtime, a snowstorm comes in late at night, where Percy is soon covered in snow and icicles. He is extremely frozen that could barely speak. Meanwhile, Lady finishes her deliveries and heads back home to Ffarquhar Sheds, still scoffing over Percy's remark. On the way, he sees unusual and scary shaped shadows in the distance through the heavy fog, but when he finds Percy frozen, she mistakes him for "Scary Jack Frost" and runs home terrified.
The next morning, Toby brings Percy a new supply of coal, and she is surprised to see Percy completely frozen. His fire soon starts, and the snow and icicles melt off, and he decides that Jack Frost is actually not scary at all. When Percy returns to the sheds, Lady is bragging to the others that he saw Jack Frost. Percy adds that Lady was scared of him too, but the purple engine is still able to make good humour of the situation.
