Narrator: Lady the Magical Engine puffed sadly to Edward's Station............

Lady: "It's not fair!"

Narrator: She complained.........

Lady: "Diesel 10 has been telling lies about me, and made Lady Hatt and all the engines think I'm horrid."

Narrator: Belle smiled.

Belle: "I know you aren't, and so does Lady Hatt. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these Freight Cars?"

Narrator: "Lady felt happier with Belle, and set to work at once.

Narrator: The Freight Cars were silly, heavy, and noisy. The 2 engines had to work hard, pushing and pulling them all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill."

Lady: "Thank you.......goodbye!"

Narrator: whistled Lady...........and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line.

Narrator: Lady loved coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly, it was a conductor's warning whistle!

Freight Cars: "Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!"

Narrator: laughed the Freight Cars........

Freight Cars: "We've broken away! We've broken away! Chase her! Bump her! Throw her off the rails!"

Narrator: they yelled.........

Lady's Driver: "Hurry, Lady, hurry!"

Narrator: said her driver........

Narrator: They raced through Belle's station, but the Freight Cars were catching up.

Lady's Driver: "As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually!"

Narrator: her driver was gaining control.......

Lady's Driver: "Another clear mile, and we'll do it!"

Lady: "Oh glory.....look at that!"

Narrator: Neville was just pulling out on their line from the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash!

Lady's Driver: "It's up to you now, Lady!"

Narrator: cried her driver.

Narrator: Lady put every ounce of weight and steam against the Freight Cars.

Lady: "It's too late!"

Narrator: Lady groaned, and shut her eyes.

Narrator: She veered into a siding where a barber set up shop.........he was shaving a customer.

CRASH!

Narrator: The silly Freight Cars had knocked their driver down and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning.

Narrator: But the Freight Cars didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves."

Lady: "Beg pardon, sir."

Narrator: gasped Lady........

Lady: "Excuse my intrusion........."

Barber: "No, I won't!"

Narrator: said the barber crossly........

Barber: "You've frightened my customers.........I'll teach you!"

Narrator: and he lathered Lady's face all over........

Narrator: Poor Lady........

Narrator: Rosie was helping to pull the Freight Cars away when Lady Hatt arrived."

Barber: "I do not like engines popping through my walls!"

Narrator: fumed the barber.......

Lady Hatt: "I appreciate your feelings.........."

Narrator: said Lady Hatt...........

Lady Hatt: "But you must know that this engine and her driver have prevented a very serious accident......it was a very close, um, shave."

Barber: "Oh......."

Narrator: said the barber.......

Barber: "Oh........excuse me."

Narrator: He filled a basin of water to wash Lady's face."

Barber: "I'm sorry, Lady.........I didn't know you were being a brave engine."

Lady: "That's all right, sir.........I didn't know that either."

Lady Hatt: "You were very brave, indeed."

Narrator: said Lady Hatt........

Lady Hatt: "I'm proud of you..........."

Narrator: Lady Hatt watched the rescue operation.......then she had more news for Lady."

Lady Hatt: "And when you are properly washed and mended.......you are coming home."

Lady: "Home, ma'am? do you mean the yard?"

Lady Hatt: "Of course."

Lady: "But ma'am, they don't like me........they like Diesel 10."

Lady Hatt: "Not now..........I never believed Diesel 10.........so I sent her packing........the engines are sorry and want you back."

Narrator: A few days later when she came home........there was a really rousing welcome for Lady the Magical Engine.
