Something in the Air is the fifteenth episode of the fifth season and the 119th episode of the series. In this episode, Henry ignores Thomas' warning about a dangerous line.


At the keyside of a small village, some fish are being loaded into Thomas' vans. The start of his trip to Brendam was delayed by a crate of fish falling onto him. His driver and fireman don't care that he was rudely interrupted, so they laugh. He was pleased to move on the eroded tracks on the coastal route. Once he arrives at Brendam Docks, Henry doesn't listen to Thomas' warnings and leaves before the signalman can be warned. In a rush, Henry puffs straight into the sea and has to stay there all night until he was rescued. When Henry was back on the rails, Thomas jokes with him about the whole adventure.
