The Standard Gauge Mountain Railway Hank's State: Worried

The Faulty Sheds, also known as The Funnel Gap is the USA, is the the 1st episode of Season 6 and the 132nd overall.


Some of engines have been complaining about Tidmouth Sheds, saying it is too cold, too cramped, and too dirty among other things. Because of this, Sir Topham Hatt started to rebuild the sheds. 

However, when they're finished, all the engines to to the sheds in huge anticipation. However, Edward finds a hole above in the roof in his berth. He alerts the other engines about the problem but they don't care that much. 

That is, until the rain comes, buts its not just rain: Its a storm! The rain causes even more holes to be put into the roof and its a long night for the engines in the sheds.

That morning, the engines tell the Fat Controller about the storm the night before and the holes in the roof. He is shocked and states that it should be re-build again. Meanwhile, the engines will sleep in the Vicarstown Sheds, waiting for their sheds to be finished.
