Thomas doesn't want to wear his snowplough, so he decides to hide it on a siding, pretending not to know where it is. He is then ordered by The Fat Controller to stay in the sheds while Emily clears the snow on his branch line, much to her displeasure. Thomas discovers that Emily had fun in clearing the trucks and is taking Annie and Clarabel for a ride. This prompts Thomas to come out of the sheds to find his snowplough, but the snow had covered everything and he is stuck in thick snowfall. Emily finds Thomas' snowplough and rescues him from the snow; The Fat Controller is cross that Thomas had hid it on the siding and orders him to clear the line for Emily the next day.
