“An engine to push and an engine to pull, because we're so full!”
―Troublesome Trucks

Both Together! is a short rhyming magazine story.


Duck meets a boat carrying goods like biscuits and tea down at the harbour. A crane loads crate after crate into Duck's waiting trucks. The trucks end up being so heavy that Duck has trouble moving them. Luckily, BoCo arrives and buffers up behind the train. Duck is very grateful and the trucks laugh that an engine to push and one to pull is the best way to move them as they are so full.
