Off the Rails, retitled Gordon Takes a Dip in American releases, is the twenty-fourth episode of the first season.


Gordon is told that he has to take a goods train, and when his fire is slow Edward shunts him to the turntable. Gordon is grumpy and, to pay everyone out, tries to jam the table, but only runs into a ditch, where he has to stay all day until James and Henry fish him out.
