The Bear Hunt



One evening, Thomas was on his branchline, pulling Annie and Clarabel, taking his last passenger for the night, Michael Rosen, back to his home. On his way back to Tidmouth Sheds, he passed Max and Monty in Farmer McColl's field, guarding his cattle. During their race with Buster the Steamroller, they crashed into a ditch where they were scared by a bull. Since then, they were afraid of cattle. While they were arguing, they broke the fence and all of the cattle started panicking. It gets worse when a bear gets in and steals one of the bulls.

The next morning, Thomas, Annie, and Clarabel were with Percy, when Diesel showed up to play tricks on them. Just then, they saw everyone at Knapford Station, gathered for a meeting.
