Thomas Gets Bumped is the sixth episode ever made in Season 3.
Thomas is late after taking some children home where their bus breaks down and Thomas is afraid he will be replaced. He fears amplify when the rails on his branch line buckle and he is sent to shunt in the yard while Bertie does his passenger work. But the Fat Controller adjusts Thomas' timetable so he and Bertie can work together more often.
- Side views of Thomas at the signal show that his siderods appear to be disconnected from his front wheels.
