A new diesel named Mavis makes things frustrating for Toby when she puts his freight cars in random places. She doesn't follow his advice very well, and get stuck at a level crossing where the rails are slippery and a slop gives the freight cars a chance to hold her back.
Following her mishap with freight cars, Mavis is forced to put the freight cars where Toby wants them and no where else. She makes a plan to have the cars push her past another level crossing and ask them to do so, but Toby collects the freight cars instead, and they not only push him past the crossing, but also on a bridge that is about to collapse. Will Mavis rescue Toby?
