Gordon Takes a Tumble is the sixteenth episode ever made in Season 6.
Gordon brags to Salty that it is not "dignified" for express trains to take trucks, but when Gordon is later told to take trucks he swears to do it how an express engine should. He races along the mainline until he is accidentally diverted onto an old, rickety branch line, but he still goes fast even after he sees a "go slow" sign. The old rails finally give way and Gordon tumbles off the tracks and ends up bursting through a shed and stops in front of a scarecrow. Once he is repaired, Gordon is sorry for getting "too big for his buffers".
- In the first scene, Clarabel is facing the wrong way.
