ERS 130 - More Tales Of Blandford The Somerset Engine - Chris The Xelent

TIMES OF OLD

When called to help out on Edward’s branch line while Boco is away, Blandford seems taken aback by the sudden change in surroundings. But a journey along the mainline followed by a chance to put a wheezing Gordon in his place reminds him of happier days in the past.

GORDON'S BLOWOUT
With Gordon still running badly, Blandford is quick to tell him about the dangers of rapid steam raising in cold weather. Unfortunately, the big engine is too proud to accept his advice.  Once bitten, twice shy?

THE OLDEST TRICK
With Blandford settling in on Edward’s branch, it’s time for him to work with Bill & Ben. Normally the tank engine twins have a knack for teasing strangers on their territory. But, unfortunately for them, Blandford knows better!

I'VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE

When Boco returns, Blandford starts telling him and Edward all about life on his old railway. More importantly, he reveals the long, dark and depressing tale about how he came to Sodor.  The other engines soon understand how he retains the character traits he gained.
