Continuing the twenty part season was Ol' Wheezy Wobbles where Misty Island crane Ol' Wheezy broke down, leading to Thomas trying to help The Logging Locos by unsuccessfully asking Den and Dart individually to fix the problem.
Once again with writing from Sharon Miller, the Dieselworks made a return to the series with Arry and Bert reappearing in speaking roles.
The cameos of engines started off the show with Gordon, Emily and Stanley passing through a crossing followed by Percy and Annie beside Thomas running through the countryside.
Also seen were Henry and Charlie at Maron Station and Belle pushing Toby up a gorge near the Search and Rescue Centre, in a nod to Big Belle. Hee Haw was also sighted throughout the story.
The episode garnered mainly negative reviews from fans who were disatisfied with the Misty Island and Logging Locos nature of the story coupled with the greater use of the repetitive rhyming structure.
Points were also noted with Thomas' ignorance and self confidence and the inclusion of Den and Dart meeting The Logging Locos which was felt to not have mixed or even worked.
Few positives came such as Arry, Bert and the Dieselworks playing roles followed by the activity of some of the engines drivers helping with Ol' Wheezy's condition.
Once again through the milkshake! show, another dance routine of Thomas, You're the Leader! was performed just before the episode's start. This time however, presenter Jen Pringle was responsible of activity duties.
