Bust My Buffers is a Chinese DVD featuring five episodes from the sixteenth series.


Gordon the grand engine doesn't feel so grand when he bashes into some trucks at the Docks - and his buffer falls off! When Gordon arrives at the Dieselworks, Den and Dart are worried - Gordon doesn't have a buffer and all engines must have one of those! They offer to give Gordon a yellow and black Diesel buffer, while his own is mended. Gordon is horrified! He is far too grand a Steamie to be seen with a yellow and black buffer. The indignity! So, Gordon hurries away. First he meets Salty and then he meets Mavis. Both engines tell Gordon he can't puff without a buffer! It's not safe. Gordon gives in. He returns to the Docks with a yellow and black Diesel buffer...and very unhappy. Thomas can't think why. The Diesel buffer means Gordon can still be a Really Useful, grand engine. Gordon has to agree. So Gordon - very grandly - huffs to thank Den and Dart for keeping him on the tracks and Really Useful!
