A Better View for Gordon is the third episode ever made in Season 5.
Gordon is asked to pull an empty express train to Kirk Ronan to test the new building. Gordon is bored by the blank plaster wall in front of his buffers, but has other things to think about when he becomes ill. Gordon is repaired in time for the opening, but when he approaches Kirk Ronan, Gordon loses control and crashes through the wall. Upon his return from the Works, Gordon is delighted to discover the broken wall has been turned into a panoramic window.
