Gordon and the Famous Visitor is the tenth episode ever made in Season 3.


City of Truro has come to visit the North Western Railway. Although most engines get along well with him, Gordon is jealous of his record (he was the second engine to go 100 mph) and claims that he is a lair because he has no dome. Gordon later tries to go as fast as City of Truro, but unfortunately for him, his dome is blown off at the viaduct and is made into a laughing stock at Knapford by some trucks. Gordon, heading back home, hopes that the shed will be empty, but to his dismay all of the engines are there.


  • Henry, Daisy, BoCo, Annie, Clarabel, Henrietta, Terence, and Harold were not invited to see City of Truro. Diesel, for some reason, was.
