Thomas and Friends meet The Dockside Railway

Chapter One: Inferno
Brendam Docks one of the busiest places on Sodor. The engines are always working there, collecting cargo and passengers from the incoming ships. Lots of loads, such as food, metal and wood, is deported oversaeas from the docks. It is the main industry on the Island and must always be working.

One day, Thomas arrived on the dockside after a late night delivering coal. He was filthy and yawned as he chugged up next to Percy.
"H-H-Hello Percy." Thomas yawned. Percy looked at the sky. "Percy?" Thomas asked as turned his attention upwards. Cranky was unloading some very heavy equipment from a large ship. It had City Saler written on it's side.
"What are those?" Percy oohed,
"Thee be munitions, matey." Salty's voice called.
"What's?"
"Munitions. 'Ery explosive." Thomas and Percy were amazed. Cranky, however, wasn't.
"These things are heavy!" He growled and nearly dropped one. Percy and Salty gasped.
"I'll leave. See ya!" Thomas smiled, and he puffed away.

That night, fog had swept in. It was only just over the top of the dock, but they were all working carefully. More munitions were still being unloaded, but there was a shortage of fuel and another vessel had arrived with the requirement. Thomas arrived to find the docks were crowded with trucks. Salty, Henry, BoCo and Arthur were already there, trying to move away the flatbeds and wagons.
"How will we clean this up?" Thomas asked.
"No idea little Thomas." BoCo sighed. Suddenly, there was a sound of a foghorn.
"It'll be coming in quicker now!" Salty warned. Thomas sighed and went to move some trucks under Cranky when he felt his trucks jolt.
"THOMAS, YOUR DERAILING!" Henry shouted. Thomas applied his brakes, but the trucks hit Cranky. The crane shook and his munition dropped onto some fuel wagons.
BOOM
The docks were ablaze within seconds. The engines all rushed away. They couldn't stay there. Both vessels had caught fire and Cranky's driver was climbing down quickly. Thomas felt very ashamed.
"This is all my fault!"

Certainly

Chapter Two: Lose of Engines
The sun rised over the Northern Hempishpere, loud whistles woke the residents of Coastal Town. A ferry had crashed that night and Clarence Ocean and Edward Railsea were using their tugs, Little Blue, a harbour tug with a raised wheelhouse, and Sunshine, a little switcher, to pull into into the docks.
"Pitty, she was very new." Clarence sighed, turning to the boat behind them.
"Nothing a few weeks int he works can't fix!" Edward laughed.
"Clarence, the news should be on." Little Blue called. Clarence flicked a switch on his radio and listened.
"Our top story, Brendam Docks on the Island of Sodor has been caught in amjor fire caused by fuel and munitions.." The radio man said.
"Oh no!" Sunshine gasped. He remembered when his old home had had a bad fire.
"That's the really famous place, isn't it?" Edward asked.
"I'm sure it is." Clarence replied and they continued chugging through the water.

Back on Sodor, Sir Topham Hatt arrived in his blue car. His chaffeur opened his door and he stepped out onto the burnt slate. The Dockside Manager walked up, followed by the Railway Board.
"What's the damage?" Hatt asked.
"All ruined. The two boats have sunk, Cranky's close to collapsing, everything's in ruins!" The Manager said. Sir Topham Hatt turned the corner and gasped. Everything was covered in ash! There wa sa large hole in near Cranky, the trucks were all in pieces and only the funnels of the boats were out of the water.
"Close the docks." Siad the head of the board.
"We can't!" Said the manager. He turned to Sir Topham Hatt. He gave a deep sigh.
"I agree with Monty." And the manager gasped. "But, we'll need our engines to help out."
"But sir.." The manager began, but Sir Topham Hatt interuppted.
"Your not one of my engines, don't say that!" And he left. The manager just sighed as wel and walked over his ruined docks.

Yeah, but he'd have been a LMS Jubilee rather then a MR Compound.

Chapter Three: Mission

Little Blue and Sunshine pulled into the docks. One of the sea cranes, Junior, was towed up by Ten Cents.
"Goodie, some work!" Junior smiled and set to work.
"Have you heard of the Sodor Fire?" Little Blue asked.
"Yeah, the manager's having trouble ordering fuel." Ten Cents replied.
"But our machines need fuel!" Sunshine gasped. Rocket just rolled up.
"Hello guys! Have you seen Monic?" Monic was a train boat.
"No, we haven't!" Little Blue replied. Rocket sighed and rolled away. The others ignored him and kept talking.

Meanwhile, Edward and Clarence were in a staff meeting with Robert and Paul. The manager, E. Bennidict was cross.
"The mountain ranges are in danger of collapsing and we need to clear it away!" He snapped.
"So what?" Asked Robert.
"We can't get gunpowder in to blow it up!" Mr Bennidict replied.
"Okay so what do we do?" Clarence questioned.
"You and Railsea are going to help Sodor repair their docks so the worry is over!"
"Are we taking engine sor just tugs?" Edward asked.
"Tugs. Meanwhile, Waves and Katana are going to smuggle in some fuel!" Paul gasped.
"But we can't!" E. Bennidict stared and he was quiet.

Monic was out at the works unloading area. He had been very busy, dropping off an LMS engine.
"Thanks for the ride!" The engine snorted and it rolled onto the rail peir and was off. It crossed the small bridge ahead and was gone.
"What a friendly engine! I don't like him." Monic snapped and he left.

You'll find out!

Little bit i forgot to add:
As Monic headed off, the engine smiled.
"He'll soon be with the fishes." He smiled and puffed away.
Aaron was back.

Chapter Four: Guilt all Around
The work had begun
Men had arrived at Brendam and had cleared away all the ash and had started to secure Cranky, who's beams had nearly snapped. Then, "The Pack" arrived and started to do their work. Today, the engines were going to help. Thomas awoke from a deep sleep and found the sheds were empty.
"I'm late for work!" He cried and rushed into the yard. Emily was collecting some pieces of track.
"Could you give me a hand?" She asked.
"Certainly." Thomas replied. He was coupled up and the set off.

When they arrived at Brendam, it was a terrible site. Teh ash was cleared, but the funnels from the sunken vessels were poking out of the water, which had fuel and barrels in it. Thomas knew how it was his fault. Emily looked at Thomas.
"Don't blame yourself." She said.
"But i hit Cranky, i didn't help move the fuel!" Thomas was very upset. He pulled himself free of the train and ran away. Emily sighed. Percy puffed up.
"Where's Thomas going?"
"I don't know!" Emily wailed and tears fell from her eyes.

It was sunset in Coastal Town. Little Blue and Ten Cents were ready to go. Clarence and Edward had the right essintals and climbed aboard.
"Goodbye and good luck!" Paul smiled.
"We'll take great care of them!" Robert beamed, pointing to Sunshine and their engines, Jack and Rocket.
"We'll be back soon!" Edward cheered.
"And we'll bring soveniours!" Clarence laughed. The tide was ready and they set off, whistles blowing. Paul turned to Robert.
"Do you think stealing fuel is right?"
"Well, when you really need it, i think it'll be alright!" Robert chuckled and he walked off. Paul couldn't help feeling guilty. Sally, his seaplane, flew above him. She knew something was wrong and wanted him to feel better.
"I must do something!" She said. As she flew, an engine passed beneath her.

The next person to post on Dockside gets to see a special sneek peak of a certain chapter!
