Ted is the name of Henry's driver. During Christmas, Ted constantly practised carols during the day for the carol service on Christmas Eve. On the night before the service, Ted lets the engines use their tuned whistling to help him practice. But when the church organ broke, Ted had an idea, and before long, the engine orchestra were whistling the tunes to the Christmas carols. The night proves to be a great success and Sir Topham Hatt was pleased with all of his engines.
