Mavis and the Lorry is the second episode of the first season of the Railway Series.


Sir Topham Hatt tells all of his engines that a new extension to Ulfstead at the end of Thomas' Branch line is to be built. Mavis the quarry diesel is always a little worried when travelling along the quarry line towards Farquar, especially now that the extension means many lorries are travelling along the tram roads. Then one day, Mavis doesn't see a lorry speeding up towards her. As it swerves round, she hits it hard, sending it flying into a ditch! Nobody is hurt, but Mavis' front is slightly bent. She has to go and get it repaired. The other engines struggle without her and are happy when she returns.
