Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin A New Friend For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine enjoys living in the Vicarage Orchard. Edward came to see him every day, but sometimes Trevor didn't have enough work to do.
  • Trevor: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Trevor: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Edward: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Edward.
  • Edward: Sir Topham Hatt has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Thomas today.
  • Trevor: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Trevor happily.
  • Trevor: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Edward: Hello, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: This is Trevor a friend of mine. He's a traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Thomas eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Thomas: A what engine?
  • Trevor: A traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Explained Trevor.
  • Trevor: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Sir Topham Hatt has a job for me.
  • Thomas: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Trevor's car to Thomas' train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Trevor: I'm glad Sir Topham Hatt needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Trevor.
  • Trevor: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Thomas: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Trevor: I'm a traction engine. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Cars had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' Driver.
  • Driver: They are escential. Trevor, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Trevor: Just the sort of job i like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: Now you'll see, Thomas. I'll soon show you what traction engines can do.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Trevor: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Thomas brought Annie and Clarabel to visit him. Thomas was most impressed.
  • Thomas: Now I understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Trevor gave them rides to all the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Annie: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Annie.
  • Clarabel: He reminds me of Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Added Clarabel. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Trevor to go. Thomas pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Trevor's eye. Thomas pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Trevor happy.
  • Thomas: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Thomas: The Vicar will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Trevor: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor. That evening, Trevor stood remembering his new friend Thomas, the harbour, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

  • Girl: (singing) All your friends on the railway would like you all to see.
  • Children: (singing) Just how much fun rockin' on the railway can be.
  • Boy: (singing) So won't you come along and join them for the ride.
  • Children: (singing) Just hang on tight, catch your breath, and come for the ride! Rockin', rockin' on the railway, Rollin', rollin' on the railway, Movin', movin' down the line, Swingin', sway from side to side. They'll be rockin' an' a-rollin' won't you come for the ride of your life?
  • Boy: (singing) Watch Duncan go, he can really rock 'n' roll.
  • Children: (singing) He can slip, he can slide, he can sway from side to side.
  • Girl: (singing) So when you hear him coming and you hear his whistle blow.
  • Children: (singing) You'd better step aside 'cause he can go go go! Rockin', rockin' on the railway, Rollin', rollin' on the railway, Movin', movin' down the line, Swingin', sway from side to side. They'll be rockin' an' a-rollin' won't you come for the ride of your life? Now we're really moving, movin' to an' fro. Everyone around shouting "More! More! More!"

Soon the coach was rockin', it swayed from side to side.
  • Girl: (singing) With the bath water spillin' and a-splashin' inside.
  • Children: (singing) Rockin', rockin' on the railway, Rollin', rollin' on the railway Movin', movin' down the line, Swingin', sway from side to side.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Henry To The Rescue)
  • George Carlin: Gordon always pull the big express. He was proud of being the only engine strong enough to do so. It was full of important people like Sir Topham Hatt and Gordon will see how fast he can go.
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, tricktey-trock!
  • George Carlin: Said the coaches. In a minute, Gordon will see the tunnel where Henry stood bricked up and lonely.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Why did I worried about rain spoiling my lovely coat of paint? I'd like to come out of the tunnel.
  • George Carlin: But Henry didn't know how to ask.
  • Gordon: I'm going to poop poop at Henry.
  • George Carlin: He was almost there when... Wheesh! And there was proud Gordon going slower and slower in a cloud of steam. His driver stopped the train.
  • Gordon: What has happen to me?
  • George Carlin: Asked Gordon.
  • Gordon: I feel so weak.
  • Driver: You burst your safety valves.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: You can't pull the train anymore.
  • Gordon: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Henry laughing at me.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to see Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: These big engines are always causing me trouble. Send for another engine at once.
  • George Carlin: While the conductor went to find one, they uncoupled Gordon who had enough puff to slink on the siding out of the way. Edward was the only engine left.
  • Edward: I'll come and try.
  • Gordon: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's no use. Edward can't push the train.
  • George Carlin: The kind Edward puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed but he couldn't move the heavy coaches.
  • Gordon: I told you so.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Why not let Henry try?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will. Will you help pull this train, Henry?
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry. When Henry had got up steam, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs.
  • Henry: Oh, I'm stiffed, I'm stiffed.
  • George Carlin: He groaned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Have a run to ease your joints and find a turntable.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. When Henry came back, he felt much better. Then they coupled him up.
  • Edward: Peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: So am I. Pull hard, we'll do it! Pull hard, we'll do it!
  • George Carlin: They puffed together.
  • Edward: We've done it together! We've done it together!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward and Henry.
  • Coaches: You've done it hurray! You've done it hurray!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches. Everyone was excited. Sir Topham Hatt leaned out on the window to wave at Edward and Henry. But the train was going so fast, that his hat blew off into a field where a goat ated for tea. They never stopped til they came to the station at the end of the line. The passengers all said thank you, and Sir Topham Hatt promised Henry a new coat of paint. One their way home, Edward and Henry helped Gordon back to the shed. All three engines are now great friend. Henry doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his paint nicely not to run into tunnels, but to ask his driver to rub him down when the day's work was over.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Night Train)
  • Children: (singing) See how the night sky glows, See the light from the night train, The fire glow from the night train. On down the line he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! On down the line he blows. All through the night he goes. Hear the sound of the night train, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train. Hear how his whistle blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his whistle blows. Pulling, heaving, big engine breathing. Pistons pushing side by side. Driver checking, gauging, peering, Fireman stoking by his side. On down the line they go. Fast track for the mail train, Clear away for the post train. Non-stop all night they go... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Non-stop all night they go. See how the night sky glows. Clear ahead for the night train, Green light for the night train. On down the track he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! On down the track he blows. Dawn is breaking, sleepy town waking. Children waving, watch him go. Freight trains, milk trains, Boat trains waiting, Stand aside to let him go. There in the morning glow The sunlight on the night train, Silhouettes the night train. On down the line he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! There in the morning glow. On down the line he blows Hear the sound of the night train, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train. Hear how his whistle blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his whistle blows. On down the line he blows, On down the line he blows.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Bulldog)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Percy was impatience. He was wearing a new coat of paint and long for everyone to see it. The other engines were still dozing, but not Percy.
  • Percy: Driver should be here by now. What's he doing?
  • Gordon: Sleeping.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: But that means I'll be late. The coaches will be waiting and the passengers will get cross.
  • Henry: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • James: It's still early.
  • George Carlin: Added James.
  • James: You just wanna showoff.
  • Percy: No I don't.
  • Thomas: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: It'll soon be time for work, but be careful, or you might run into danger and Duke is not here to save you.
  • Toby: D-D-Duke?
  • George Carlin: Stuttered Toby.
  • Toby: You mean our hero?
  • George Carlin: A large painting of Duke hung on the engine shed.
  • Thomas: The very same.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Driver told me the story. Listen.
  • George Carlin: And this is the story Thomas told them. Long ago, when Peter Sam was still called Stuart and Sir Handel Falcon, they worked with Duke on his own railway, but Falcon still had a lot to learn. The manager came to see him.
  • Manager: Falcon, I'm pleased with your work so far. Now you must learn the difficult part of the line. We call it "The Mountain Road".
  • George Carlin: Falcon was excited.
  • Falcon: Yes please, sir.
  • Manager: So tomorrow, when you have a new coat of paint, you will go on it. Duke will explain everything.
  • Falcon: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Thought Falcon.
  • Falcon: Duke's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Next day came.
  • Duke: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Warned Duke.
  • Duke: The mountain road is difficult. I'll lead.
  • Falcon: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: I'll lead. How can I learn the road with you lumbering ahead and blocking the view?
  • Duke: Suit yourself.
  • George Carlin: Said Duke.
  • Duke: But never mind the view. Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: The engines set off.
  • Duke: Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke.
  • Duke: Never mind the view.
  • Falcon: Fusspot, fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: Fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy.
  • George Carlin: The engines' speed grew slower and slower.
  • Falcon: Don't dawdle, don't dawdle!
  • George Carlin: Urged Falcon.
  • Duke: No hurry, no hurry.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke. Soon they approach the tunnel. Falcon didn't like the tunnel. It was curved and he couldn't see.
  • Falcon: I wanna get out! I wanna get out!
  • George Carlin: He sighed. One moment, everything seemed safe. But then suddenly...
  • (Falcon falls into the edge)
  • George Carlin: Falcon was derailed and hung dangerously over the edge. Duke bravely held on with all of his strength.
  • Falcon: Stop shaking!
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Falcon: I can't hold you if you shake!
  • George Carlin: Duke's driver and fireman work quickly to make the two engines safe again. Then came more trouble.
  • Fireman: Water!
  • George Carlin: Cried Duke's fireman.
  • Fireman: Duke needs water quickly!
  • George Carlin: Luckily there was the workers' cottage nearby. Soon everyone was passing jugs, buckets, kettles and saucepans filled with water until Duke's first was quinched. All the while, Duke was building more strength. At last, when everyone's help, he was able to pull Falcon back on to the rails.
  • (Duke pulls Falcon back on the rails)
  • George Carlin: Then they started off once more. The manager was waiting at the top station. He apologized with the accident.
  • Passengers: Your Duke...
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: Is a hero! He stirm firmed like a bulldog and wouldn't let go.
  • George Carlin: Falcon was greatful too.
  • Falcon: Thank you for saving me, Duke. I didn't know you bothered after I've been so rude.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duke.
  • Duke: You just had a new coat of paint. It wouldn't been a pity if you rolled down the mountain and spoiled it.
