Back-to-Front is a magazine story.
Whilst the Fat Controller is on holiday, the engines are breaking down. First, Thomas' gears jam and he can only go forward. Then, James snaps his side-rod and finally Gordon's brakes jam and he crashes through the back of the sheds.
- The way Gordon crashed through the back of the wall is similar to the way he crashed through the wall of Kirk Ronan in the fifth series episode, A Better View for Gordon.
- It is stated that Thomas' gears jam, however he does not have gears.
