An injured swan was found on a bridge on Thomas' Branch Line. It was thought that he collided with a parapet on the bridge. The inspector covered the swan with his coat in Thomas' cab and at the next station, he took the swan to the vet in his car. The swan had a broken wing and after it was rested, it resided in the vet's garden until it was strong enough to fly. Then Thomas took it back to the river where it was set free.
