The story begins when a stone falls on the rail and the London train is coming!
So… will Eric and his friends be able to remove the stone in time?
LONDON TRAIN 10:15 a.m
We must move it. The 10:15 a.m. London train will be here in one hour.
There’s no time.
I know! Let’s get Eric the Engine. He’s stronger than all of us.
I’ll get him.
One day there was a big storm. Lightning struck a mountain and a huge rock rolled onto the train line.
Help! There is a rock on the train line and the London train is coming very soon.
Seagull saw what happened. In the morning, he called his friends Rabbit, Fox and Mouse.
They can’t do it
The animals tried to move it. They pushed and pushed but it would not move.
Eric tooted his whistle and called his friends. All the engines gathered around. Eric was big and strong but not very fast. He asked the express trains to go ahead.
You (yellow) go first, and then you (blue). I’ll follow you.
The engines arrived. The two express trains pushed, but the rock wouldn’t move. They pushed again and the rock moved a little. Then Eric arrived. He tooted his whistle and pushed with all his strength.
Slowly the rock moved. The London train arrived and it raced past the engines and the animals, who were waiting on the other line.
