“NO! Pete, you can't go to the scrapyard!”

Poor Old Puffer Pete is the thirty-fourth episode of the first season.


Zephie overhears Morgan and Lori talking about scrapping something over a hundred years old, causing her and Brewster to think that Old Puffer Pete is going to be sent to the scrapyard. The two spend their day trying to save Pete by trying to prove he's still a useful chugger. Later they find out everything was a misunderstanding: Morgan and Lori were not talking about Pete himself, but about his old tender car Terry.


Rolling Stock






  • Going by production order, this is the thirtieth episode of the first season.
  • This is the first episode in which both Wilson and Koko do not physically appear.
  • This episode reveals that Old Puffer Pete used to be a tender engine when he was younger.
  • In the UK dub, Old Puffer Pete says, "I don't want to be Old Pongy Pete", but in the US dub, he says, "I don't want to be Old Stinky Pete", which is likely a reference to the Toy Story 2 character with the same name.
  • This episode, along with Action Brewster are the only episodes Plarail has made merchandise for.


  • Pete's buffer beam clips through the Farm's platform a couple of times at the start of the episode.
