“Weeee!”
―Skarloey

Skarloey the Brave is the twenty-second episode of the ninth series.

Plot

One morning, Skarloey and Rheneas are shunting at the incline, when a line of trucks break away, and come racing towards Skarloey. Skarloey hurries away and rolls into a siding, where the trucks safely thunder past to avoid a collision. As they head into the Transfer Yards, Rusty quickly tells the workmen to set the points, and the trucks are diverted into a siding where they are stopped by a snowdrift. Skarloey thinks he was very brave, but Rusty gets all the credit. This annoys Skarloey, and tries to show everybody how he is very brave. So when he starts shunting the next day, he does not uncouple from his trucks and is pulled up the incline, much to Rheneas's and Duncan's surprise. However, due to the weight distribution of Skarloey, the winch breaks and Skarloey races down the hill, ending up in a snowdrift in the same siding he was at the day before. Skarloey is later told by The Thin Controller that, as a consequence of his actions, several mountain villages will not get any coal as the winch is unable to get the trucks down that Skarloey needs. Knowing that it is his fault, he climbs up the steep railway to get to the top of the winch the other way. Rheneas and Duncan ask him if he is going to be brave and race down the incline again, but this time, Skarloey refuses, and delivers to coal to all the villages who are extremely grateful.
