Transcript

Double Trouble

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the land of YTV. Ash Ketchum's blue paint sparkled in a sunshine as he puffed happily along his branch line with Suzy and Pietra. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Rikochet: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: You look splendid.
  • Ash: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only proper color for a trainer.
  • Ace: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Ace.
  • Rikochet: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Rikochet.
  • Ash: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only color for a really useful trainer. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet said no more. He just grinned at Ace. Later, Ash was resting when Rikochet arrived. A large hopper was loading his Beedrill full of coal. Ash was still being cheeky.
  • Ash: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Ash: Watch out with those silly Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the Beedrill.
  • Ash: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Ash.
  • Ash: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Ash: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Ash.
  • Ash: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Rikochet was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Ash's smart blue paint was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Rikochet: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: You don't look really useful now, Ash. You look really disgraceful.
  • Ash: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Ash.
  • Ash: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Ash that he wasn't it time for his next train. Ace had to take Suzy and Pietra.
  • Suzy: Poor Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Suzy to Pietra. They were most upset. Ash was grumpy in the shed that night. Ace thought it made a great joke, but Rikochet was cross with Ash for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Rikochet: Fancy a really useful blue trainer like Ash becoming a disgrace to Steven's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Ash was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Rikochet bring his Beedrill from the junction. The Beedrill were heavy and Rikochet was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Rikochet found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Rikochet: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: Help!
  • (Rikochet falls into the deep coal)
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Rikochet was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Ash to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Ash: Now Rikochet has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two characters made up their quarrel.
  • Rikochet: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: You do know that, don't you?
  • Ash: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.

A Miltank On The Line

  • George Carlin: Scott was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty Beedrill to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Scott was heading for trouble.
  • Scott: Come on! Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the Beedrill. Scott puffed and clanked, the Beedrill rattled and screamed. Some Miltank were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Scott clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some Beedrill were left behind.
  • (Miltank mooing)
  • George Carlin: Scott felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to Beedrill.
  • Scott: Bother those Beedrill!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Scott: Why can't they come quietly?
  • George Carlin: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Terry and Virgil heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Terry: Fancy allowing Beedrill to break your train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • George Carlin: Old Ace was cross.
  • Ace: You couldn't help it, Scott. They've never met Miltank. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • George Carlin: Some days later, Terry rushed through Scott's Station.
  • Terry: Boop boop! Mind the Miltank! Hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Terry.
  • Pets: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled his pets. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Terry that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Terry's Driver: Whoa, Terry!
  • George Carlin: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Terry: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: It's only a Miltank! Shooh! Shooh!
  • George Carlin: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the Miltank wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Virgil arrived.
  • Virgil: What's this? A Miltank? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: Virgil backed away nervously.
  • Virgil: I don't want to hurt her.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, Virgil's Conductor told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • George Carlin: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, looking for her mother. Rikochet will take her along.
  • George Carlin: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • Virgil: Not a word.
  • Terry: Keep it secret.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Terry and Virgil to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Scott: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Scott.
  • Scott: Two big characters afraid of a Miltank.
  • Terry: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: We didn't want the poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what mean, my dear Scott.
  • Scott: Yes, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott. Terry felt somehow that Scott "saw" only too well.

Omi's Chase

  • George Carlin: One morning, Scott was waiting to pick some passengers from Ash's train.
  • Scott: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Ash? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • George Carlin: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Ash. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Omi Xiaolin Warrior in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • George Carlin: He clambered down.
  • Omi: Stop, stop! I've got Ash's passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Omi, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Scott was gone.
  • Omi: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Omi.
  • Omi: Bother Ash's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Omi.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Omi: I'll catch Scott or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Omi.
  • Omi: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Omi: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Omi as he reached the top.
  • Omi: Oh no! Scott's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Omi toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Omi!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Omi skitted into the yard.
  • Omi: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Omi. He was just in time to see Scott puffed away.
  • Omi: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Omi.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Scott. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Omi and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Omi chased after Scott once more.
  • Pets: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the pets as Scott snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Scott: Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Scott.
  • Scott: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Scott's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Omi. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Scott: I'm sorry about the chase, Omi.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott.
  • Omi: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Omi.
  • Omi: Late at junction. You didn't know about Ash's passengers.
  • Scott: Peep peep! Goodbye, Omi! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Scott.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Omi!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Omi raced back to tell Ash that all was well.
  • Ash: Thank you, Omi, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're a very good friend indeed.

Saved From The Dumps

  • George Carlin: Steven works his characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Scott: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Scott called to Ash.
  • Ash: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash cheekily. Ash was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into Beedrill and Scott pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Scott in the yard. It was a bunny.
  • Scott: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott.
  • Scott: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Buster: I'm Buster. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Scott: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott.
  • Buster: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new, but my owner says I'm old fashioned.
  • George Carlin: Scott snorted.
  • Scott: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Steven says I'm a useful character. What work did you do?
  • Buster: My owner will send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • George Carlin: Buster shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Buster: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Scott set off for the station.
  • Scott: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Buster, I must.
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who liked characters. But strangely none of them would have room for a bunny at home.
  • Scott: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then...
  • Scott: Peep! Peep! Why didn't I think of him before.
  • George Carlin: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Charles: Hello, Scott. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a bunny in the scrapyard, professor. He'll be broken up next week. Bluster Kong says he never drove a better character.
  • Scott: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Charles: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied the professor. Bluster Kong came on Saturday.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's coming to see you, Buster. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Buster: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Buster?
  • Bluster Kong: He will when I lit your fire and clean you up.
  • George Carlin: The professor and his two boys arrived that evening. Buster hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Charles: Show your paces, Buster.
  • George Carlin: Said the professor. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Charles: I've got him cheap, Bluster, cheap.
  • Bluster Kong: Did ye hear that Buster?
  • George Carlin: Cried Bluster.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Buster: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Buster. Now Buster's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Scott every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Buster likes his work but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers round the orchard giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Buster: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.

Old Iron

  • George Carlin: One day, Al have to wait at the station till Scott and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • Al: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Scott laughed and Al fumed again. After Al had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • Al: Scott is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • Al: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Ash and Rikochet were indigment.
  • Scott: Old iron?! Slow?!
  • Ash: Why, Scott could beat you in a race any day!
  • Al: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: I should like to see him do it. Next morning, Al's driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled Al ready for shunting. Al was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Al puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on Al's footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when Al started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Scott arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Scott: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Scott. Al was laughing.
  • Al: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • Al: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Scott: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Scott. Scott was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with Al.
  • Scott's Driver: Steady, Scott.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Scott's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over Al's buffer. The characters swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Scott's driver checked the characters' speed, and Al's fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Scott: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Scott.
  • Al: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Al.
  • Al: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Scott.
  • Scott: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Scott. The characters arrived at the station side by side. Steven was waiting.
  • Steven: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: Al, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Scott. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Scott: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott.
  • Scott: It'll be lovely not to clank.

A New Friend For Ash

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

Rikochet and The Traffic Light

  • George Carlin: Rikochet works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Rikochet: Peep peep! Hurry up, Terry, the train's ready.
  • George Carlin: Terry thought he was late.
  • Rikochet: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Rikochet and showed him a train of dirty Beedrill. Terry thought how he can pay Rikochet back for teasing him. Next it was Al's turn.
  • Rikochet: Stay in the shed today, Al. Steven will come and see you.
  • Al: Ah!
  • George Carlin: Thought Al.
  • Al: Steven knows I'm a fine boy. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • George Carlin: Al's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Al's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Al. You can't stay here all day.
  • Al: Steven told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • Al: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: Oh. Where's Rikochet?
  • George Carlin: Rikochet had wisely disappeared. When Steven came back, he was cross with Al and Rikochet for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Rikochet was still being cheeky.
  • Rikochet: I say, you characters, I'm to take some Beedrill to Ash's junction. Steven chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful wrestler.
  • Al: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Al. Terry looked across to Al. They were going to play a trick on Rikochet.
  • Terry: Al and I were just speaking about traffic lights at the junction. We can't be too careful about traffic lights, but then I needn't say that to a really useful wrestler like you, Rikochet.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet felt flattered.
  • Al: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Al: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Rikochet: No thank you, Al.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: I know all about signals.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet was a little worried.
  • Rikochet: I wonder what backing traffic lights are.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Rikochet: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: He puffed crossly to his Beedrill and felt better. He came to a traffic light.
  • Rikochet: Bother, it's a danger.
  • George Carlin: The traffic light moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Rikochet had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Rikochet: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing traffic lights.
  • Driver: Come on, Rikochet.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Rikochet: But it's a backing traffic jam.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet protested and told him about Terry and Al. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Rikochet: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • George Carlin: He was too late. Terry saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Rikochet thought they were being very silly.

Ozzy Takes Charge

  • Rikochet: Do you know what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Rikochet.
  • Terry: What?
  • George Carlin: Grunted Terry.
  • Rikochet: Do you know what?
  • Terry: Silly!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Rikochet: Steven says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger character to help me.
  • Al: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: Any character could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet went off to get some pets.
  • Rikochet: That stupid old traffic light.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a traffic light and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Rikochet: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little wrestler and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some pets to the station.
  • Steven: Hello, Rikochet.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: You look tired.
  • Rikochet: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my head or on my feet.
  • Steven: You look the right way up to me.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Steven.
  • Steven: Cheer up. The new character is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Ash and Ace will help too.
  • Rikochet: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: The new character arrived.
  • Steven: What's your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Steven.
  • Ozzy: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Ozzy. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Ozzy better than Montague.
  • Steven: Good. Ozzy it shall be. Here, Rikochet, show Ozzy around.
  • George Carlin: The two characters went off together. Soon they were very busy. Al, Terry and Virgil watched Ozzy quietly doing his work.
  • Virgil: He seems a simple sort of character.
  • Al: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Virgil, Terry and Al: (quacking noises) Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Smoke billowed everywhere. Rikochet was cross, but Ozzy took no notice.
  • Ozzy: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Rikochet?
  • Rikochet: Yes they do.
  • George Carlin: Answered Rikochet.
  • Ozzy: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He whispered something.
  • Ozzy: We'll do it later.
  • George Carlin: Steven was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Virgil, Terry and Al: Wheesh! (snorting noises)
  • Steven: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He said and hurried to the yard. Ozzy and Rikochet calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the characters in. Terry, Al and Virgil were furious.
  • (Terry, Al and Virgil blew their whistles loudly)
  • Steven: Stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Bellowed Steven.
  • Terry: They won't let us in!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Terry.
  • Steven: Ozzy, explain this behavior.
  • Ozzy: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western character. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Rikochet and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, characters that we only take orders from you.
  • (Al and Terry blew their whistles loudly)
  • Steven: Quiet!
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: Rikochet and Ozzy, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • George Carlin: Terry, Virgil and Al sniggered.
  • Steven: As for you.
  • George Carlin: Thundered Steven.
  • Steven: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Ozzy is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • George Carlin: After Rikochet went away, Ozzy was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!

Rikochet Proves A Point

  • George Carlin: Rikochet worked hard at the new university. The workmen needed stone for their building. Ace helped, but sometimes the loads of stone are too heavy, and Rikochet had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes, he sees Ash.
  • Ash: Well done, Rikochet. Steven is very pleased with us.
  • George Carlin: An airfield was closed by. Rikochet heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a superhero.
  • Rikochet: Silly thing!
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: Why can't and go and buzz somwhere else?
  • George Carlin: One day, Rikochet stopped at the airfield.
  • Rikochet: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: Who are you?
  • Superman: I'm Superman. Who are you?
  • Rikochet: I'm Rikochet. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Superman: They're nice arms.
  • George Carlin: Said Superman.
  • Superman: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Rikochet: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Superman: I think railways are slow.
  • George Carlin: Said Superman.
  • Superman: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • George Carlin: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Rikochet found Ace at the quarry.
  • Rikochet: I say Ace. That Superman, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says I'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • George Carlin: He collected his Beedrill and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familar buzzing.
  • Driver: Rikochet.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Superman. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Rikochet: Yes, let's.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet. Rikochet pounded along, the Beedrill screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. There was Superman. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Rikochet!
  • George Carlin: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • George Carlin: Rikochet had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Rikochet: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. It was no use. Rikochet was bucketing along with flying wheels and Harold was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Rikochet!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • George Carlin: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Rikochet: Peep peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please?
  • George Carlin: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and haulted on the wharf.
  • Rikochet: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: I'm sure we've lost.
  • George Carlin: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Superman's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • George Carlin: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Rikochet. (singing) Said Superman to our Rikochet you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Rikochet and his stone cars did the trip in record time, and we beat the helicopter on our old branch line.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet loved it.
  • Rikochet: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy wrestler.

The Runaway

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum was ill. Workmen had try to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Steven: Scott must send you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. Ash felt very miserable. Then, Steven spoke to Ozzy.
  • Steven: I want you to help Rikochet and Ace while Ash is away.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy was delighted. He already knew Rikochet and soon made friends with Ace and Omi. Freakazoid gave him a big welcome too.
  • Freakazoid: Take care of Ash's coaches.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Freakazoid: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy was very gentle with the coaches. Suzy and Pietra were impressed.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Suzy and Pietra: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • George Carlin: When Ash came back, Suzy and Pietra told him how well Ozzy had managed. Ash was so happy to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Ash's 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. Ash found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Ash's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Virgil's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Ash's handbrake. Ash simmered happily.
  • Ash: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He thought. As he saw Virgil slowly approaching. But Ash's 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, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Suzy and Pietra. But Ash, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Superman. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Ash was tiring.
  • Ash: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Ash saw Superman 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)
  • George Carlin: At last Ash stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Superman.
  • Superman: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Ash.
  • George Carlin: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: We must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Weirdly, Ash agreed with him.

Rikochet Takes The Plunge

  • George Carlin: One day, Virgil wanted to rest, but Rikochet was talking to some engines. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Ash.
  • Rikochet: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bumpty: Oh, Rikochet, you are brave.
  • Rikochet: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a character with determination.
  • Raphael: Tell us more, Rikochet.
  • Virgil: What are you characters doing here?
  • George Carlin: Hissed Virgil.
  • Virgil: This shed is for Steven's characters. Go away. Silly things.
  • George Carlin: Virgil snorted.
  • Rikochet: They're not silly.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet had been enjoying himself.
  • Virgil: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to a character with determination. Huh.
  • Rikochet: Anyway.
  • George Carlin: Said cheeky Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • George Carlin: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Rikochet: Once a character carrying some flowers was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Virgil: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Virgil. Ash was looking at the board on the key.
  • Ash: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ash: That's orders.
  • Rikochet: Why?
  • Ash: Danger means falling down something.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Rikochet: I can't see a mine.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Rikochet: Stupid board.
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the Beedrill.
  • Rikochet: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill had never asked to bump an engine before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Rikochet: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Rikochet.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill. Rikochet thought they were helping.
  • Rikochet: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the Beedrill will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • George Carlin: Every wise character knows that you cannot trust Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled, and bumped Rikochet's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Rikochet: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Said Rikochet, sliding pass the board. Rikochet was frantic.
  • Rikochet: That's enough!
  • (Rikochet falls into the water)
  • George Carlin: Rikochet was sunked.
  • Steven: You are a very disobeident wrestler.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet knew that voice.
  • Rikochet: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Steven: No, Rikochet, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Rikochet: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Rikochet. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Virgil's freight train.
  • Virgil: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil.
  • Virgil: Did you like the water?
  • Rikochet: No.
  • Virgil: I am surprised. You need more determination, Rikochet. Water's nothing to a character with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.

Pop Goes Ken of The PMC

  • George Carlin: Ozzy is very proud of being a cell. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard too and makes everything ran like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The Beedrill and coaches behave well, the passengers even stopped grumbling. But the characters didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Ozzy: There are two ways of doing things.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy told them.
  • Ozzy: The cell way, or the wrong way. I'm a cell and...
  • Virgil, Terry and Al: Don't we know it!
  • George Carlin: They groaned. The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Steven introduce him.
  • Steven: Here is Ken. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Ozzy.
  • Ken: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Purred Ken in an oily voice.
  • Ken: Please to meet you, Ozzy. Is that Al and Virgil and Terry too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • George Carlin: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • George Carlin: They murmured.
  • Characters: We are pleased to have in our yard.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy had his doubts.
  • Ozzy: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He said. Ken purred after him.
  • Ken: Your worthy Wil...
  • Ozzy: Steven to you.
  • George Carlin: Ordered Ozzy. Ken looked hurt.
  • Ken: Your worthy Steven thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We trainers don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Ozzy: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my Beedrill while I fetch Terry's pets.
  • George Carlin: Ken delighted to show off, purred away. When Ozzy returned, Ken was trying to take some Beedrill from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Ken found them hard to move.
  • Ken: Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill groaned.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Ozzy watched with interest. Ken lost patience.
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: He roared, and gave a great heave. The Beedrill jerked forward.
  • Beedrill: Ohhh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • Ozzy: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Ozzy. Ken recovered and try to push the Beedrill back, but they wouldn't move. Ozzy ran quietly around to collect the other Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: Thank you for arranging these, Ken. I must go now.
  • Ken: Don't you want this lot?
  • Ozzy: No thank you.
  • George Carlin: Ken gulped.
  • Ken: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Ozzy: You never asked me. Besides.
  • George Carlin: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • George Carlin: Ken had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the Beedrill were laughing and singing at him.
  • Beedrill: Beedrill are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts Ken, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong Beedrill out, Pop Goes Ken!
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Ken, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Ken's Devious Deed

  • George Carlin: Ken of the PMC was sulking. The Beedrill were not stop singing rudely at him.
  • Beedrill: Show the world what I can do, gaily boasts Ken. In and out he creeps about...
  • George Carlin: Ozzy was horrified.
  • Ozzy: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Ozzy: I'm sorry our Beedrill were rude to you, Ken,
  • George Carlin: Ken was still furious.
  • Ken: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Virgil: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: Ozzy would never do that. We characters have our differences, but we never talked about them to the cars. That would be dis...dis...
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Virgil: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Virgil. Ken hated Ozzy. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Ozzy. Next day, he spoke to the Beedrill.
  • Ken: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Ozzy told me one about Terry. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Terry I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Beedrill: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Terry will be cross with Ozzy when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Ozzy for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the engines as they went by. Soon Terry, Virgil and Al found out why.
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Virgil: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Virgil.
  • Virgil: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Virgil: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Virgil: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy was tired out. The Beedrill had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: Hooosh!
  • Al: Keep out!
  • Ozzy: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: I'm tired.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the characters.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: We're tired of you. We like Ken. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: You do!
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: You do!
  • George Carlin: Steven came to stop the noise.
  • Terry: Ozzy called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Terry.
  • Al: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Al.
  • Virgil: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Virgil.
  • Wilhelmina: Well, Ozzy?
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy considered.
  • Ozzy: I only wish sir.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Ozzy: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Steven: (clearing throat)
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: He made Beedrill laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the characters. Steven recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Steven: Did you, Ozzy?
  • Ozzy: Certainly not, sir. No character will be as mean as that.
  • Ringo Starr: Ken lurked up.
  • Steven: Now, Ken, you heard what Ozzy said.
  • Ken: I can't understand it, sir, to think that Ozzy of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, sir, but no nothing.
  • Steven: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. Ken squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Steven: I'm sorry, Ozzy, but you must go to Scott's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Ozzy: As you wish, sir.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy trundled sadly away, while Ken smirked with triumph.

A Close Shave For Ozzy

  • George Carlin: Ozzy Jones walked sadly to Scott's station.
  • Ozzy: It's not fair.
  • Ringo Starr: He complained.
  • Ozzy: Ken has been telling lies about me and made Steven and all the characters think I'm horrid.
  • George Carlin: Scott smiled.
  • Scott: I know you weren't, and so does Steven. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these Beedrill?
  • George Carlin: Ozzy felt happier with Scott, and set to work at once. The Beedrill were silly, heavy and noisy. The two characters have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Ozzy: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Ozzy, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Ozzy love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Ozzy: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Driver: Hurry, Ozzy, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. They raced through Scott's station, but the Beedrill were catching up.
  • Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • George Carlin: The driver was gaining control.
  • Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • George Carlin Al was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Driver: It's up to you now, Ozzy.
  • George Carlin: Cried the driver. Ozzy put every ounce of wait and steam against the Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: It's too late!
  • George Carlin: Ozzy groaned. He veered into a siding where a barber had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The silly Beedrill were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the Beedrill didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Ozzy: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Barber: No I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • George Carlin: And he lathered Ozzy's face all other. Poor Ozzy! Ash was helping to pull the Beedrill away when Steven arrived.
  • Barber: I do not like characters popping through my walls.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed the barber.
  • Steven: I appreciate your feelings.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Steven.
  • Steven: But you must know that this character and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Barber: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: Oh! Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: He filled the basin of water to wash Ozzy's face.
  • Barber: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave character.
  • Ozzy: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Steven: You were very brave indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: I'm proud of you.
  • George Carlin: Steven watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Ozzy.
  • Steven: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Ozzy: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Steven: Of course.
  • Ozzy: But sir, they don't like me. They like Ken.
  • Steven: Not now. I never believed Ken, so I sent him packing. The characters were sorry and want you back.
  • George Carlin: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Ozzy Jones.

Better Late Than Never

  • George Carlin: The characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Steven did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The characters have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Ash would be ready to collect his passengers. Ash grew crosser and crosser.
  • Ash: Time's time.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Ash: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Virgil and Al dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Virgil: Don't blame me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Virgil.
  • Virgil: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Ash: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • Georeg Carlin: Retorted Ash. He hurried away before Virgil could answer. Omi was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Ash. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the bus till their train, they were kept waiting till Ash arrived. Soon Omi grew cross with Ash.
  • Omi: Late again!
  • George Carlin: He remarked as Ash panted wearily in.
  • Omi: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Ash. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • George Carlin: Ash let off steam loudly.
  • Ash: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: He hissed fiercely.
  • Thomas: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Steven's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: One day, Al was later than ever at the junction.
  • Al: I'm sorry, Ash.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Al: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Ash: It's lucky for you I'm a guaratee connection.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Ash. Before Al could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Ash: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the coaches. Suzy and Pietra did their best but Ash still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Ash saw Omi ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Ash: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Ash: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Omi: I feel dreadful.
  • George Carlin: Moaned Omi.
  • Omi: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home overwise.
  • Ash: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Ash. He now felt sorry for Omi, and promised to get help at the next station. Ash set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Omi's passengers, travelling in Suzy and Pietra all reached home safely. When Omi was better he came to thank Ash.
  • Omi: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Ash: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • George Carlin: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.

Tom and Jerry

  • George Carlin: Tom and Jerry are pets, and had arrived from Scotland to help Steven, but only one pet had been expected. The pets meant well, but did cause confusion. Steven had given them numbers, Tom 9 and Jerry 10, but he was still planning to send one pet home. There was Krunch in the yard that had taken a dislike to Jerry. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Jerry began to worry. Tom, his pet, was angry.
  • Pet: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • George Carlin: Said Tom.
  • Tom: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Krunch: You can't!
  • George Carlin: Said Krunch.
  • Krunch: I'm essential!
  • Tom: Och are you?
  • George Carlin: Tom burst out.
  • Tom: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Jerry, would ya? Take that!
  • Krunch: Ow! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Cried Krunch.
  • Tom: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • George Carlin: Krunch behave better after that. Until one day, Tom had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time.
  • (Tom crashes into the signal box)
  • George Carlin: Tom wasn't hurt, but Steven was most annyoed.
  • Steven: I am disappointed, Tom. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Jerry back and keep you.
  • Tom: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Tom.
  • Steven: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Al will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. Al won't like that.
  • George Carlin: Steven was right. Al grumbled dreadfully about extra work.
  • Jerry: Anyone would think.
  • George Carlin: Said Jerry.
  • Jerry: That Tom had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about a boy and some tar wagons.
  • Al: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: It's not funny.
  • George Carlin: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Jerry: Well, well, well! Surely, Al, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • George Carlin: Al didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Krunch: Al is cross!
  • George Carlin: Sniggered Krunch.
  • Krunch: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Beedrill: Hold back!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the Beedrill to each other. Al did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Scott's station. Luckily, Jerry was there.
  • Al: Help me up the hill, please!
  • George Carlin: Panted Al.
  • Al: These Beedrill are playing tricks.
  • Jerry: We'll show them.
  • George Carlin: Said Jerry. Slowly but surely, the snorting characters forced the Beedrill up the hill. But Al was losing steam.
  • Al: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Jerry: Leave it to me!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Jerry. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady! Krunch's breaking!
  • (Jerry smashes Krunch to bits)
  • George Carlin: Krunch was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Scott came to clear the mess. Steven was board.
  • Steven: I might have known it would be Jerry,
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Scott: Jerry was grand, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Scott.
  • Scott: Al had no steam left, but Jerry worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Steven: Two would have been enough.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: I want to be fair, Jerry, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • George Carlin: Steven was making up his mind about which pet to send away, but that's another story.
