―Miss Jenny encouraging Kelly

Kelly's Windy Day, originally titled Five Easy Pieces, is the fifth episode of Jack and the Sodor Construction Company.


One day, Thomas took Kelly to the site where a new library is being built. But the wind is blowing hard and Kelly is nervous as winds are dangerous for a crane. The pack are working hard, but as Kelly is trying to lower a beam, the wind is pushing his crane arm. Then suddenly, he tips over and demolishes a shed, and one of his wheels pops off it's axle. Miss Jenny reassures him that it wasn't his fault, and he'll be repaired soon. But Kelly is worried that he might tip over again and hurt someone.

That night, repairman work all night to repair Kelly's wheel as rain poured down. The next morning, the rain stopped, but the wind was still blowing. Kelly is the only machine left in the shed. Then Miss Jenny tells him that Isobella was pushed off the road by the wind and needs to be rescued. Kelly is still worried he might tip over again and hurt someone and asks her if someone else can help Isobella. But Miss Jenny tells him that there's no one else to save her, and that he's the only one.

Isobella was teetering over the Quarry bridge with a piano on her flatbed she was trying to take to an elderly woman's new home, and she was in peril of falling on to the tracks. Kelly and Miss Jenny arrive and Kelly removes the piano. The wind was blowing hard, and the elderly women is nervous, but Kelly is able to lower the piano safely to the ground. But now he has the hardest job of all. To rescue Isobella. He hooks up to her and pulls, but the wind blows harder. Kelly stops pulling and claims the wind is too strong for him. But Miss Jenny cheers him on, which gives him enough courage to keep on going. Until at last, he pulled Isobella back on the road.

Miss Jenny congratulates Kelly for a job well done, and Isobella also thanks him. But Kelly was proud of himself for getting his courage back. Soon they continue on their way to get the elderly woman's piano to her new home. And Thomas can see that Kelly was happy again.
