The big tender engines were allowed to come out again while Edward, Percy, and Thomas went off to play on the branch line for a few days. Edward had warned Percy to be careful on the mainline. He had warned Percy to whistle when he came to a signal to let the signalman know he was there. Percy carelessly forgot. He almost caused a major accident when he found himself in the way of Gordon’s express. Gordon stopped just in the knick of time and Percy ran away from the scene.
