Bruce seemed to be nervous, but James asked what happened after. The engines said Lee was very damaged, but found. They forgot to mention that Lee was unlucky, then they did. Gordon also remembered putting Lee in a siding, and he left one day, Bruce was still nervous, Phillip asked why. Bruce was silent.
