One day at the quarry, Bill and Ben the tank engine twins were busy pushing and pulling the trucks into their proper
places, the twins are cheeky and love playing tricks, but they were growing restless as the days went by, the were getting
bored of nothing going on, and soon found out that what they need is a surprise, but they didn't know what sort of suprise
they would need, and before Ben could answer the quarry foreman arrived with news from the Fat Controller, both engines are
to go to the harbour.
Bill wonders what they have done wrong, Ben says that it must be him, but when they arrive, they find that they arn't
in trouble at all, the Fat Controller then tells them both that Edward is taking the children to a trip to the seaside, so
Bill and Ben are to look after trucks there.
The twins are pleased and set off, they soon found Gordon, who spoke severly to them about being on the main, but they
make cheeky remarks, saying that when they saw Gordon, they thought that the harbour was actually the scrap yard, this makes
Gordon very cross and he huffs to the twins to make sure that they have his coaches ready for his evening train and he puffs
The twins are soon busy at work, shunting the trucks around the harbour, they think they know all about trucks, but they
really didn't, the trucks soon makes plans and play tricks on the twins, they pretend to show the twins around, but all it
does is make things worse, and soon, all the trucks are in the wrong places, the twins had let the silly trucks tlel them
where to put things and now everything was in confusion, not only that, but Gordon's train was late, and by the time the twins
had sorted things, Gordon was very late with his passengers.
The next day, the twins were back at work at the quarry, but all of a sudden, there is a strange noise, Bill and Ben
wonder what it could be, until Bill's driver explains that the noise is a rockslide, the alarm soon sounds and everyone is
evacuating the quarry, the workers scramble into all the empty trucks as the rocks begin to fall all over the quarry, they
were just leaving when the foreman cried out for help, he was amost left behind, Ben waited as the man climbed quickly into
the truck, they pulled away as quickly as they could as the rocks grew larger and began to destroy the quarry.
When the rockslide is over, the quarry is in a terrible state, the twins are both very worried what the Fat Controller
will say, but when he arrives, he praises the twins for their quick thinking and so they are given three cheers for rescuing
the workers from a nasty situation.
