  • (Mr. Conductor 1 appears)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: What's up guys?
  • Sakura: Mr. Conductor 1.
  • Madison: We were celebrating a party.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Oh yes. Harry has come back.
  • Kat: See? I told you.
  • Ana: Do you know about your good friend Thomas?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Why of course. He had a problem with the brakes. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and The Runaway starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas the Tank Engine was ill. Workmen had been trying to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward must take you to the works.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas felt very miserable. Then, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to help Percy and Toby while Thomas is away.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Duck was delighted. He already knew Percy and soon made friends with Toby and Bertie. Terence the Tractor gave him a big welcome too.
  • Terence: Take care of Thomas' coaches.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He advised.
  • Terence: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Duck was very gentle with the coaches. Annie and Clarabel were impressed.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Such nice manners.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They told each other.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: When Thomas came back, Annie and Clarabel told him how well duck had managed. Thomas was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The works have left Thomas' handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Thomas found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Thomas' fireman was ill and a relief man took his place.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Henry's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Thomas' handbrake. Thomas simmered happily.
  • Thomas: Not long now.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He tought. As he saw Henry slowly approaching. But Thomas' brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver friman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Stop! Stop!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Shreiked Annie and Clarabel. But Thomas, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: There ready for action was Harold the Helicopter. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Thomas was tiring.
  • Thomas: I need to stop, i need to stop.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Thomas saw Harold land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: At last Thomas stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Harold.
  • Harold: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Weirdly, Thomas agreed with him.
  • (The Runaway ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So you see, Thomas hadn't been careless for brakes. That's why.
  • Kimiko: Oh that's bad. He'd never learned since.
  • Buena Girl: You'd be leaving right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Right.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Rita: We can be good party lovers.
  • Nikki: And we can be average.
  • Ash: That's what i'm talking about.
  • Brock: Yeah.
  • (Inside the Jukebox)
  • Tito: I'm here to perform The Gang's All Here.
  • Didi: You are.
  • Tex: Ye know what Tito says?
  • Rex: A good ol' gang.
  • Grace: Let's hit it, guys.
  • (Tito performs The Gang's All Here, with the rest playing the Instruments)
  • Tito: Hey, hey, the gang's all here We're gonna do a real show It's gonna be a big show! Hooray, hooray The gang's all here So let's begin to work right now. Hey, hey, the gang's all here We're gonna do a real show It's gonna be a big show! Hooray, hooray The gang's all here So let's begin to work right now.
  • (Music continues)
  • (The Gang's All Here ends)
  • (Back with Schemer and Schemee, we find them with Team Rocket)
  • Schemer: This party is so awesome.
  • Schemee: Yes.
  • Jessie: It's our duty to ruin it.
  • James: And we'd say it's our favor.
  • Meowth: We can be super rich.
  • Wobbuffet: Wobbuffet.
  • (We find Mr. Conductor 1 with Omi and Raimundo)
  • Omi: Thomas is ready for his first song ever.
  • Raimundo: Take us to the Anything Tunnel.

  • (We zoom to the Anything Tunnel and Thomas' Anthem starts)
  • Children: (singing) It's Thomas the Tank Engine. Hip, hip, hip, hip, hooray! Chugga-chugga, chugg, chugg Chuff, chuff, chuff. He rides along the way.

  • (Whistle blowing)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So you know about Thomas' first song.
  • Penny: Oh, i love it.
  • Mona: It's fun to feel free.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Oh yes.
  • Daphne: We can hear about good friendships.
  • Velma: Do engines go on wrong routes?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They do. It happened to Gordon when he took the wrong line. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Wrong Road starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas' branch line is important and so is Edward. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Sir Topham Hatt does not allow the heavier main line engines like Gordon to run on them. But one day, the way Gordon was talking, he would have tought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Edward.
  • Gordon: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Edward: Never mind, Gordon. I'm sure BoCo will let you pull his freight cars sometimes.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon spluttered.
  • Gordon: I wont pull BoCo's dirty cars. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Edward: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt would never approve.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon puffed away. Edward chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two engines pulled two fast trains from the station. Gordon always leaves first with an express for the main line. Edward follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Gordon to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He tought the conductor had waved his flag. Gordon started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Gordon had been stopped and brought back, Edward was already late with his train.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Edward along the main line. Gordon was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bill and Ben peeped into the yard. There were no cars for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Gordon will be much better fun.
  • Bill: What's that?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Sheesh!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Whispered Ben.
  • Ben: It's Gordon.
  • Bill: It looks like Gordon but it can't be. Gordon never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Ben.
  • Ben: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bill: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Ben: No Bill, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • (Gordon's Whistle toots)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: BoCo quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the cars he brought for Bill and Ben. This made the twin behave at once. Gordon tought BoCo was wonderful.
  • Gordon: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • BoCo: Ah well.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Wrong Road ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So that's why Gordon took the branch line by mistake.
  • Misty: That's totally awesome.
  • Brock: You'd be leaving right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Right.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Stacy: It's been a long time since we celebrated this party.
  • Harry: Yes.
  • Billy: We can hardly tell about good friendships.
  • Ash: See, little sister? Friends are special.
  • Mary: That's good, big brother.
  • Mel: You know, Ashy Boy, you're the best dancer ever.
  • Ash: What!?
  • Jackie: Oh great.
  • Uncle: Here we go again.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 reappears)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Oh brother.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 gives a thumbs up as the episode ends)
  • (We then find the end credits with the train from the intro puffing)
  • (While they roll, the Shining Time Station end theme plays)
  • Man: Reach for the steam, reach for the whistle, going the railing road. Reach for the words, reach for the story, follow the rainbow sun. To a Shining Time Station, where dreams can come true, waiting there for you. So much to see, so far to travel, so much to learn to know. Friends by your side, hopes still go on too, who knows the far you'll go. To a Shining Time Station, where dreams can come true, your own imagination, waiting there for you.
