“That's not fair! You can't make Sonny do your jobs!"
"Why not? It's not my fault he's silly enough to do them for me."
"I don't understand you sometimes."
"Nobody does.”
―Percy and Diesel

Sonny's Second Chance is the thirteenth episode of the twenty-fourth series.


After being given a chance to prove himself by the Fat Controller, Sonny does not think his chances are good when he is shown hostility by Gordon and James. It seems Diesel is the only one really willing to be his friend, but it turns out Diesel is just tricking Sonny into doing his jobs for him, which Sonny finds out while pulling fish trucks. Diesel tries to follow after him, but gets diverted into a siding, derails and is about to fall into a pit. Sonny reverses to the siding, derailing the fish trucks over the points in the process, and saves Diesel. Although he had derailed the fish trucks, Sonny's heroic actions earn him praise from the Fat Controller as a really useful engine indeed.
