Bertie picked up Thomas' passengers when he got stuck in a snowdrift and Terence pulled him out. Later, he challenged Thomas to a race; Bertie was winning at first, but Thomas overtook him when he went through a tunnel and won. He and Thomas are now good friends, but he still teases him sometimes about being "slow".
