  • (Mr. Conductor 1 appears)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Morning, guys.
  • Daphne: Hey, Mr. Conductor 1.
  • Velma: Good to see you.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Today is our newest day.
  • Eeyore: Of course.
  • Rabbit: Do you remember Thomas the Tank Engine?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yes, Rabbit. He had a big 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 that's why Thomas had a problem with brakes.
  • Misty: Man, it's not his fault.
  • Brock: You'd be leaving, right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yep.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Stacy: Let's get everything ready. We're preparing for our schedule.
  • Others: Right.
  • (Inside the Jukebox)
  • Tito: The Gang's All Here, sung by me.
  • Didi: You are.
  • Tex: Ye know what Tito says?
  • Rex: It's our new day!
  • Grace: Let's do it, you guys.
  • (Tito starts to sing The Gang's All Here)

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.
