Young Tucker is the tenth episode of the second season.


When Molly hears about a new engine called Young Tucker, Rheneas had told her how all the engines think he is a "jinx", but Molly thinks it's only superstition. Molly tries to be friends with Young Tucker and make him feel welcome. Tucker insists that bad things always happen when he is doing his work, especially when Norman overheats after collecting a line of trucks Tucker had shunted for him. Molly, trying to be courteous, offers to take the trucks to prove that Tucker isn't jinxed. Tucker and Rheneas try to convince her otherwise, but she is determined. However, when she departs for the Wharf, Young Tucker forgets to advise her about the trucks' damaged brakes, and the wagons makes Molly crash into the buffers and fall into the sea. Her crew are not hurt, and Young Tucker arrives with Rocky in no time. Young Tucker feels bad, but Molly shows him that bad luck is only a supertition, and although the world may be against him, and everything wI'll likely go wrong, in the end, he has a good friend in Molly.
