“Uh, what's this?"
"It's for you!"
"It's your new home, Eddie!”
―Hodge and Eddie

Late Again Eddie is the fifth episode of the first season.


Eddie is always late because he still lives with his parents in Tootington, far away from Chuggington. Morgan becomes increasingly annoyed by Eddie's repeated lateness, and causes Eddie to be on the brink of being fired. Hodge wants to find Eddie a new place to live in Chuggington, so he finds an old caboose and, with the help of the trainees, takes it to Lori and Morgan to get it repaired. Eddie now lives in the caboose.


Rolling Stock






  • Going by production order, this is the ninth episode of the first season.
  • Mirrored stocked footage from Hodge and the Magnet and Koko on Call is used.
  • This episode marks the first of a few things:
    • The first appearance of Hodge, Zephie, Frostini, Eddie, Felix and The Gardener.
    • The first episode where Emery has a speaking role.
    • Calley’s first non-speaking role.
    • The first and only appearance of Eddie's caboose.
  • When Koko talks to Peckum, Olwin's whistle can be heard.
  • In the beginning scene, distant mountains can be seen in the background (much like the Los Angeles skyline). This is however not seen again, as this could be an animation render error.
  • The wrecking ball in this episode is actually not connected to anything, with the top of the chain being obscured to give the illusion of a crane.
  • Going by the European airing order, this is the twelfth episode of the first season.


  • Hodge is missing in the first shot of the episode.
  • Because of the use of stock footage from Hodge and the Magnet, Felix is shown on board Emery despite Hodge taking him back to the farm in the previous scene. Additionally, because the stock footage from Koko on Call is mirrored, everything such as the chuggers' details, the Depot, and its scenery are all reversed.
  • Koko's rear wheel trucks are missing when she leaves Morgan's house.
  • Several of the pieces to the old house clip through each other when it gets demolished.
