The Wellsworth Cub Scouts are releasing balloons for a balloon race and Thomas is disappointed to find that he is delivering coal to the slate mines. Percy gets to see the balloons whilst shunting at the junction, but gets a fright when George bursts one. At the mines, Thomas sees a balloon floating and his driver catches it. As Thomas saw the balloon his name is written down on its tag on it, and since it travelled the farthest he wins the race, but he kindly lets the Scouts have the prize money.
