Buffer Bashing Wilbert the Lumberjack


The new bridge on The Little Western is almost complete. The foreman informs Duck that he and Arthur are too heavy to cross the bridge. Duck suggests the handcar, but the foreman says that it would be too heavy. Donald, Douglas and Oliver later heard an unfamiliar whistle. It was Scruff, the new shunting tank engine. Scruff was light enough to cross the bridge. Mavis later arrived with some stone. Scruff went to collect the breakdown crane, and the foreman tells Mavis that the bridge is strong enough to hold her up, so she rolls away. Suddenly, Scruff rolls by with the breakdown crane. The arm is incorrectly positioned, knocking Mavis off the rails. Oliver quickly took Mavis' cars away. Oliver pulled Mavis to an iron beam to move her wheels onto the rails, successfully.
