Season 7 - Episode 23
Gordon is certain that he will be chosen to collect the Duke and Duchess for their upcoming visit. But when he is diverted onto a siding to allow a sleek streamlined engine to speed by, he soon finds out he was wrong to presume so. Gordon later learns that the engine is Spencer, the Duke and Duchess own private engine. The Fat Controller informs the engines of a special party will be held at a station on the far side of the island in honour of the visitors and Gordon warns Spencer to take on plenty of water. But Spencer is too conceited to listen, and sure enough finds himself stranded on a hill having used up all his water in speedily showing off. Gordon comes to the rescue and reclaims his title of the Islands fastest engine, whilst the others realise Spencer is not so admirable after all!
