N/A Double Rescue
Dennis, Billy and Hank, also known as the Pilot is the first episode of the first season.

Plot

The engines are given their daily work orders. Dennis is to go to the quarry, Billy is to shunt Hank's train and collect the maintence train, and Hank is to collect his regular goods train. At the quarry, Dennis meets Mavis and Fergus, who tell him that only trucks are safe on the ballast drop. Dennis ignores the warnings and breaks the ballast chute. Meanwhile, Billy shunts Hank's train. Horace the Grumpy Crane grumbles while loading cargo, and the train is off. Unfortunately, Billy leaves a workman behind. The workman chases Billy's train in Preston. They eventually arrive at the repair site where they are greeted by Isobella, Byron, and Stanley. Preston trundles in with the workman and all the engines and machines have a good laugh.
