* NeverMyFault: Logically, it would be the signalman's fault for sleeping and shirking his duties, as well as Gordon's driver for not slowing him down, yet The Fat Controller blames Gordon for ignoring the sign.



* WhatTheHellHero: The Fat Controller tells off Gordon that he proved Salty that it was silly to ignore "go slow" signs.

* HumblePie: Gordon comes back from repairs humiliated, though cheers up when the other engines are sympathetic, with Salty even apologizing for their argument.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: After accidentally being diverted onto a frail branch line, Gordon ignores a "go slow" sign, leading the rails to break under him and send him off the rails.

Gordon brags to Salty that it is not "dignified" for express trains to take trucks, but when The Fat Controller assigns Gordon to take trucks, he makes a point to do it the way express engines do, but things didn't go well after ignoring the "go slow" sign...

!!Tropes featured in the episode:
* BreakTheHaughty: Gordon suffers this massively as he heads to an old rusty branch line, tumbling off the rails and bursting into a shed in the fields.
* DelusionsOfEloquence: Percy pronounces the word "dignified" as "dignifried", and Gordon had to correct him.
* WhatTheHellHero: The Fat Controller tells off Gordon that he proved Salty that it was silly to ignore "go slow" signs.
