Calm Down, Caitlin - When the Vicarstown Bridge is closed for repairs, Caitlin can't get back and has to spend the night on the Island of Sodor. She is so excited that she keeps waking the other engines up. They try sending her off to pull the Mail Train and the Flying Kipper, but Caitlin then wakes everyone else up on the island. In the morning, the bridge is re-opened and Caitlin is the most tired of all. Luke's New Friend - One day, Luke finds a nervous and scared young deer at the Blue Mountain Quarry. The other engines warn Luke that the quarry is no place for an animal, but Luke remembers when he first arrived and how he was nervous and scared. He wants to help the young deer so he tries to get the other engines to work quietly. That is not an easy thing to do, and after one accident too many, the engines finally convince Luke that the best place for the deer is on the grounds of Ulfstead Castle.
