  • Alec Baldwin: In summer, the Island of Sodor gleams in the sun, and every station is filled with flowers. Percy had been working at the docks all day and was tired of the smell of fish.
  • Driver: Phew. Come on, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Time to go home.
  • Percy: Please sir, can I have a washdown first?
  • Driver: Sorry, Percy, there isn't time. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for us at the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is to be a festival of flowers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Announced Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This sign saying "Best Dressed Station" will be awarded to the winner. Please help with the arrangements.
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines were excited.
  • Thomas: My favorite station is Ffarquahar.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Toby: Mine is Maithwaite.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: Percy, what's yours?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was too tired to think properly.
  • Percy: The docks.
  • Alec Baldwin: He murmured.
  • Thomas: Ha!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: We can tell.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby laughed.
  • Toby: The docks are filled with fish, not flowers.
  • Percy: All right then. Alresdale's End.
  • Toby: That's my home.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Toby.
  • Percy: That's why I like it, especially when you're there not here saying I'm silly. Good night.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, Percy was proud to be sparkling again. His train of freight cars were being loaded with vegetables and flowers.
  • Driver: These are for Maithwaite.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: They'll display them on the platform.
  • Alec Baldwin: On the way, Percy saw Harold.
  • Percy: Why is Harold buzzing about?
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought.
  • Percy: I haven't time for a race today.
  • Driver: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Why bless me, it's a ram.
  • Percy: Now we're being late! I've shouldn't know that Harold is trying to tell us something.
  • Ram: Baa!
  • Fireman: I've got just a ticket to get him off the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the fireman.
  • Fireman: Food.
  • Alec Baldwin: He found some cabbage leaves. The ram chomped happily away.
  • Percy: Please can we go now?
  • Ram: Baa!
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy arrived at the station, his driver told the stationmaster what had happened.
  • Stationmaster: I've heard about this ram. He's always hungry.
  • Alec Baldwin: A little while later, the station was decked with flowers.
  • Percy: Maithwaite will definitely win first prize.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Percy. He left his coaches and went to a siding where no one could see him.
  • Percy: (yawns) Time for a snooze.
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought. But it wasn't.
  • Driver: We better see what all that noise is about.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. Percy was shocked. Flowers were scattered everywhere.
  • Driver: It's that ram. He's made of meal out of the station too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then there was trouble.
  • Passengers: We can't get in to the waiting room!
  • Alec Baldwin: The passengers cried.
  • Stationmaster: Why not?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the stationmaster.
  • Passengers: The ram won't let us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone looked at the ram and the ram looked at them.
  • Driver: He's not alone.
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Percy's driver.
  • Boys: Let us out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Begged the boys.
  • Boys: We're sorry.
  • Stationmaster: Well, look at that!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: The boys are the culprits not the ram. He was just making sure they did know more damage.
  • Boys: We thought it would be fun but it wasn't. We'll put everything back.
  • Alec Baldwin: A few days later, Sir Topham Hatt invited some of the engines at Maithwaite, winner of the Best Dressed Station award.
  • Percy: I'm sorry, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Percy.
  • Toby: You made the right choice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then Sir Topham Hatt made an announcement.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is one more prize for our good friend the ram. Here it is. And I'll eat my hat if you don't like it.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then Harold landed. The wind from his blades blew Sir Topham Hatt's hat off.
  • Ram: Baa! Baa!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, seems I wouldn't be able to eat my hat even if I had to.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone laughed and the only sound from the ram was a condented hiccup.
  • Ram: Hic.

Gordon and The Famous Visitor

  • George Carlin: It was an important day in the yard. Everyone was excited, making notes and taking photographs. A special visitor had arrived, and was now the center of attention.
  • Thomas: Who's that?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Thomas to Duck.
  • Duck: That...
  • George Carlin: Said Duck proudly.
  • Duck: a celebrity.
  • Percy: A what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Duck: A celebrity is a very famous engine.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: Driver says we can talk to him soon.
  • Thomas: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's probably too famous to even notice us.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Who cares? A lot of fuss about nothing, if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: And he steamed away. Later that night, the engines found that the visitor wasn't conceited at all. He enjoyed talking the engines, till' long after the stars came out. He left early next morning. Gordon was still complaining.
  • Gordon: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: Chattering all night. Who is he, anyway?
  • Thomas: Duck told you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's famous.
  • Gordon: As famous as me? Nonsense.
  • Thomas: He's famouser than you. He went 100 miles an hour before you were thought of.
  • Gordon: Huh. So he says.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: But I didn't like his looks. He's got no armor. Never trust domeless engines. They're not respectable. I never boast, but I'd say that 100 miles an hour would be easy for me. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck took some freight cars to Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Called Edward.
  • Edward: That famous engine came through this morning. He whistled to me. Wasn't he kind?
  • Duck: He's the finest engine in the world.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck, then he told Edward what Gordon had said.
  • Edward: Take no notice.
  • George Carlin: Soothed Edward.
  • Edward: He's just jealous. He thinks no engine should be famous but him. Look, he's coming now.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was running very fast. His wheels pounded the rails.
  • Gordon: He did it, I'll do it. He did it, I'll do it!
  • George Carlin: Gordon's train rocketed past, and was gone.
  • Duck: He'll knock himself to bits!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck. Gordon's driver eased him off.
  • Gordon's Driver: Steady, Gordon. We aren't running a race.
  • Gordon: We are, then.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon, but he said it to himself. Suddenly, Gordon began to feel a little strange.
  • Gordon: The top of my boiler seems funny.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Gordon: It feels as if something is loose! I'd better go slower.
  • George Carlin: But it was too late. On the viaduct, they met the wind. It was a teasing wind that blew suddenly at hard puffs. Gordon thought it wanted to push him off the bridge.
  • Gordon: No, you don't!
  • George Carlin: He said firmly. But the wind had other ideas. It curled round his boiler, crept under his loose dome, and lifted off and away into the valley below.
  • (The dome falls into the water)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was most uncomfortable. The cold wind was whistling through his hole where his dome should be and he felt silly without it. At the big station, the Freight Cars laughed at him.
  • (Freight Cars laugh)
  • George Carlin: Gordon tried to wheesh them away.
  • (Freight Cars continue laughing)
  • George Carlin: But they crowded round', no matter what he did. On the way back home, he wanted his driver to stop and fetch his dome.
  • Gordon's Driver: We'll never find it now.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: You'll have to go to the works for a new one.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was very cross.
  • Gordon: I hope the shed is empty tonight.
  • George Carlin: He huffed to himself. But all the engines were there waiting.
  • A Voice: Never trust domeless engines.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice from somewhere behind him.
  • A Voice: They aren't respectable.

A Better View For Gordon

  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was feeling grumpy. This was making James cross.
  • James: Why are you complaining all the time?
  • Gordon: Because I'm a big blue engine and I know everything. I shall complain whatever I like. You're just a small red engine with ideas above your station.
  • Percy: I can't see any.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Where are they?
  • Gordon: Any what?
  • Percy: Ideas above the station. The sky's empty.
  • James: Like your smokebox, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed James, but Gordon was still grumpy.
  • Gordon: One day I'll show you just a big engine can really do.
  • Percy: So what can a big engine really do?
  • Gordon: Not speak to silly little green engines for a start.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Gordon, then he puffed away. Later that day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon, you'll be making one stop today with an empty express to test our new station. You can make up time afterwards.
  • Gordon: Why can't Henry do it? He likes idling at stations.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will do as you are told.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Gordon did. But he was still unhappy and he grew sick too.
  • Gordon: I just can't get up to speed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He moaned.
  • Gordon's Fireman: It's time for your visit to the works. Your pipes are clogged.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the fireman. At last, they approached the new station. Gordon was impressed but his mood soon changed. In front of him was a blank wall and huge buffers.
  • Gordon: What a boring view! Important engines like me should have a panoramic view where I can see people and people could see me.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed angrily. Gordon was happy when it was time to leave.
  • Gordon's Driver: Now you can really enjoy your run as long as your pipes will let you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on! I can go faster that this!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Sick? Me? Never!
  • (Gordon suddenly breaks down)
  • Alec Baldwin: But Gordon began to feel more and more feeble, and soon, he came to a complete stop.
  • Gordon: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman inspected him.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Something's broken inside you, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his fireman.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Now you're really will have to go to the works.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was still fuming when James arrived to collect his coaches.
  • James: Well, well, well! So much about anything. You got too puffed up in your boiler so it's serves you right.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Gordon returned to the works a few days later, he was still boasting.
  • Gordon: I am the finest engine on the Island of Sodor, properly the finest in the world.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come on, Gordon. We're going to the official opening at the new station.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then, there was trouble. As Gordon approached the new station, neither the driver nor fireman could apply his brakes. Something had jammed. The driver reduced steam, but Gordon was still going too fast.
  • (Gordon crashed into the wall)
  • Gordon: Help me, please!
  • (We see Sir Topham Hatt surviving as he rises up to Gordon)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I knew you wanted a panoramic view, but this is not a way to achieve it.
  • Gordon: Yes, Sir, sorry, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Gordon was repaired again, he took Sir Topham Hatt to the new station, for a second official opening. This time he arrived safely, and everyone clapped and cheered as he pulled in. Sir Topham Hatt spoke to him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your panoramic view is here to stay. I trusted you are always see through it, from the safety of your own rails.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon hardly agreed.

One Good Turn

  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben are the most mischievous engines working on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. They're kept busy pushing and pulling cars up and down the line that runs from the china clay works to the harbour yard. They like to have fun together and often play tricks on the workmen.
  • (Bill pulls the cars away and soot falls on the tracks)
  • George Carlin: But sometimes, their teasing ways can get them into trouble. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Important goods have arrived in the big yard. Bill and Ben, I need you to help the other engines.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes, of course, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied the twins. They set off happily on their important mission. BoCo was resting in the yard when suddenly he heard a pair of familiar whistles.
  • BoCo: Hmm.
  • George Carlin: Sighed BoCo.
  • BoCo: Here comes trouble.
  • Bill: Sir Topham Hatt told us you were tired.
  • George Carlin: Teased Bill.
  • Bill: He asked us to take all your cars for you.
  • BoCo: You two never stopped do you? But I'm wise to your pranks and we do need help here.
  • George Carlin: The twins were soon busy pushing and pulling the heavy cars into place. At last, the day's work was done. The twins now became excited. They were going to use the turntable for the first time. Bill went first.
  • Bill: This is fun!
  • George Carlin: He shrieked to Ben. He didn't want to move off at all. The foreman stopped the turntable.
  • Foreman: Please make way for the other engines.
  • George Carlin: He ordered. Bill did so, but the foreman had accidentally stopped the turntable in the wrong place. Bill was on the wrong track and there was Ben puffing directly toward him. The engines came to a grinding halt.
  • (Bill and Ben stop against each other)
  • George Carlin: They gazed grimly at each other.
  • Bill: I was here first!
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: But you're in my way!
  • George Carlin: Protested Ben.
  • Ben: You'll have to back up again!
  • Bill: I won't!
  • Ben: You will!
  • Bill: I won't!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt came to stop the noise.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you don't behave, I shall not allow you here again.
  • George Carlin: The next day, Ben was still grumpy.
  • Ben: That Bill! Imagine getting in my way on the turntable. He's a really silly engine!
  • BoCo: The way I heard it.
  • George Carlin: Sighed BoCo.
  • BoCo: It sounded like you were both to blame.
  • Ben: Pooh! You must have heard it all wrong!
  • George Carlin: The twins grumbled about each other all day. Even kind Edward lost patience.
  • Edward: All this grumbling spreads bad atmosphere in the yard.
  • BoCo: You're quite right and that's why I come up with a plan.
  • George Carlin: BoCo whispered his plan to Edward. Then his driver told Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll start making arrangements right away.
  • George Carlin: The next morning he called Bill and Ben into the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: BoCo is taking a special train to the harbour. His regular heavy goods train is waiting on the siding. You can pull it together.
  • Ben: But...
  • Bill: But...
  • George Carlin: Protested Bill and Ben who were still not speaking to each other.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. I knew I can rely on you two.
  • Ben: I'll take the train myself.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ben.
  • Bill: Go right ahead.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill. Ben was coupled up to the train of freight cars, but they were too heavy for him to move alone.
  • (Ben attempts to pull a train)
  • Bill: Go on.
  • George Carlin: Teased Bill.
  • Ben: I can't!
  • George Carlin: Said Ben. Then suddenly, both twins laughed.
  • Bill: I don't think we'll take turns this time, Ben.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I think we better pull together!
  • George Carlin: Ben was delighted. It was good to be helping each other. Best of all, it was good to be friends again.

  • George Carlin: One morning, Bill and Ben were busy at the quarry, pushing and pulling cars filled with clay into their proper places. The twins are cheeky and love playing tricks. But they we're growing restless.
  • Ben: Listen, Bill.
  • George Carlin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: Can you hear something?
  • Bill: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Something different.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Bill: I can't hear anything different.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ben.
  • Ben: Everything is the same. Sounds the same, looks the same. What we need is a surprise.
  • Bill: Surprise what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill. Before Ben could answer, the quarry master arrived.
  • Quarry Master: I have just received a message from Sir Topham Hatt. He wants you to go to the station at the harbour.
  • Bill: I wonder what we've done this time.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill anxiously.
  • Ben: It must be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Bill: Why me?
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Bill.
  • Bill: I've not done anything.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward is taking the children on a special trip today. I want you to go to the station and look after cars there.
  • Ben: We'll do our best, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. Gordon spoke severely to them.
  • Gordon: You must behave here. You're on the main line now.
  • Ben: Actually, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Giggled Ben.
  • Ben: When we saw you, we thought this was the scrapyard.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Just make sure that my coaches are ready for my evening train.
  • George Carlin: And he fumed away. The twins laughed and set to work.
  • Bill and Ben: This was easy.
  • George Carlin: They said to each other.
  • Bill and Ben: We know all about cars.
  • George Carlin: But I'm afraid they didn't.
  • Freight Cars: No need for that.
  • George Carlin: Shouted the cars as the twins pushed them into place.
  • Freight Cars: We'll show you around, we want to help.
  • Bill and Ben: Thank you very much.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill and Ben. The cars giggled and began their tricks. Evening came. The yard was in a dreadful muddle. The twins had left the cars tell them where to put things. Gordon and the passengers waited impatiently outside the station while Bill and Ben tried to sort things out. But by the time Gordon was able to leave, it was very late indeed. Next day the twins were working at the quarry again.
  • Bill: That's a strange noise.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Bill.
  • Bill: I never heard a noise like that before.
  • Bill's Driver: I have.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver nervously.
  • Bill's Driver: It sounds like a rockslide to me.
  • (We hear a loud siren)
  • George Carlin: Then came the alarm.
  • Quarry Master: Danger! Clear the quarry!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the quarry master. Workmen scrambled into the cars.
  • Bill and Ben: Thank goodness we're here.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. They were just puffing out of the quarry when...
  • Quarry Master: Help! Wait for me!
  • George Carlin: A workman had been left behind. Ben waited as the man climbed quickly aboard. The twins left the quarry just in time.
  • (The avalanche buries the entire quarry completely)
  • George Carlin: Everyone was safe, but rubble lay all around.
  • Bill: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: This wasn't our fault. I hope Sir Topham Hatt will understand.
  • George Carlin: And indeed, he did. Next day, he arrived with Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, you still had a lot to learn about cars, don't you? But you acted quickly and bravely an emergency. So three cheers for Bill and Ben our heroes. Hip hip, hooray, hooray, hooray!
  • Bill: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: Being called heroes, well, it's, it's...
  • Ben: It's a really nice surprise.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Ben.

A Big Surprise For Percy

  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was working in the coal yards. He was feeling bored and lonely with only the silly freight cars for company.
  • Driver: Cheer up, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Sir Topham Hatt has told me that we must be here again tomorrow. We've just got to get the best of a bad situation.
  • Percy: I'll try, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy. Next morning, the freight cars started teasing Percy.
  • Cars: Percy, Percy, green and small, he's no use to us at all, around the yard to puff and blow but on a hills, he's oh so slow!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Then he took the freight cars to the coal hopper to be loaded up. Percy still felt glum as he puffed up to the top of the hill. He parked his freight cars and then set off back down the mines. Not even a cheerful sight of Bertie the Bus could bring a smile to Percy's face.
  • Bertie: What's the matter, Percy?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bertie.
  • Percy: Nothing exciting ever happens. That's the matter.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: It's just coal coal coal and cars cars cars. I'm bored bored bored.
  • Bertie: Excitement is surprising.
  • Alec Baldwin: Observed Bertie.
  • Bertie: You never know when it'll happen. Otherwise, it wouldn't be exciting. Tootle peep.
  • Percy: It would be surprising if something surprising happened.
  • Alec Baldwin: Muttered Percy. Later, he stopped by the water tower for a drink.
  • Toby: Hello, Percy. How are things?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby.
  • Percy: Boring.
  • Toby: Well, why not have a few spins on a turntable? You'll like that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I think it just make me feel giddy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver interrupted.
  • Driver: Stop gossiping, you two.
  • Toby: Cheer up, Percy. You soon know about cars than any other engine. That'll be exciting.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Toby. The freight cars were still grumpy and there was more of them then ever.
  • Cars: You much too small to pull one of us. We want another engine who would be struggling at the hill all night! All night, all right, you can puff and blow, but on a hill, you're still slow! Ha, ha!
  • Percy: Slow yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Stuttered Percy.
  • Cars: Temper, temper.
  • Alec Baldwin: Giggled the cars. Percy decided to simply carry on.
  • Driver: Go to it, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted his driver. The freight cars were still joking.
  • Cars: Too slow, more power, here all night, tomorrow too!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy angrily. Then there was trouble. A coupling broke.
  • Cars: Surprise, surprise! Catch us if you can!
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • (The freight cars speed away from Percy and pass Bertie)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver phoned the signalman and the yard foreman told Sir Topham Hatt what was happening.
  • Yard Foreman: They're heading for the big hill! It'll slow them down but they roll back again right into the village.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then we'll just have to stop them, won't we?
  • Alec Baldwin: The chase was on.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie go after the runaway cars)
  • Alec Baldwin: As they approach the hill, they overtook the freight cars. Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie screeched to a halt, and waited for them near the top. The hill slow the freight cars right down to a stand still. Then the men quickly put wooden blocks behind their wheels so they couldn't roll backwards. The freight cars were now secured. Just then, Percy arrived.
  • Bertie: Well, what do you think of that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Joked Bertie.
  • Bertie: A good chase is always exciting.
  • Percy: It was certainly a surprise.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Percy.
  • Percy: And you are right, Bertie. A really useful engine should never be surprise by surprise.

Busy Going Backwards

  • Alec Baldwin: Toad the break van was feeling sad. Everywhere he look, he could see engines and coaches moving steadily forwards. They all look confident and cheerful. One day, he decided to talk to Oliver the Great Western Engine.
  • Toad: I'm always going backwards, Mr. Oliver. I have forward thinking views. I could be a leader if you know what I mean.
  • Gordon: You can't be a leader without a train to follow you. You don't have a train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon said. Toad felt sadder still. Oliver wanted to help,
  • Oliver: You're a really useful break van, Toad. You help me break and you keep my freight cars in order when we go down hills.
  • Toad: I know, Mr. Oliver, but it'll be so exciting to go forwards for a change instead of always things sliding away from me.
  • Alec Baldwin: The freight cars were cross with Toad.
  • Car 1: Who he to started complaining?
  • Car 2: He's lucky to be look after us.
  • Car 3: Let's teach him a lesson.
  • Alec Baldwin: The freight cars were simply carried up their plan when they reach Gordon's Hill. When they were nearly at the top, they play their tricks.
  • Cars: Ready, steady, go!
  • Alec Baldwin: And they jerked and a coupling which broke.
  • Cars: We're making your wish come true, Toad! Follow the leader!
  • Alec Baldwin: Yelled the freight cars. Toad was still in a state of shock so he didn't know what to think. And he couldn't ask the conductor, he had jumped clear.
  • Cars: Faster, faster, as fast as you want!
  • Alec Baldwin: Screamed the freight cars. Suddenly, Toad found it fun but the fun was soon over. A crossing lay ahead and the gates were closed, Toad couldn't stop. Worst still, Toad now realize he was on the wrong track. There ahead was Gordon! The signalman change the points just in time.
  • Cars: On, on, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the freight cars. Suddenly, he saw James pulling a long slow train.
  • Toad: Oh, my goodness! Help, save me!
  • Alec Baldwin: A quick thinking shunter did just in time.
  • James: What was that?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained James. The signalman warned the stationmaster at the next station.
  • Signalman: There's a runaway coming!
  • Stationmaster: We'll send them into the sidings.
  • Toad: Help, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Toad again. Toad saw some buffers.
  • Toad: Those were stop me.
  • Alec Baldwin: But the points in the buffers weren't safe.
  • Toad: Oh, no! I'm back on the main line!
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Oliver was racing to the rescue.
  • Oliver: I must catch Toad. I must.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toad sped past Henry. More danger lay ahead. Men were working on the bridge, but they had been warned about the runaway Toad and his freight cars. They diverted him onto old sidings, straight into a muddy pool.
  • (Toad falls into a muddy pool)
  • Toad: Stopped at last.
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver arrived and when he saw Toad, he can only smile.
  • Oliver: A pond is the only place for a Toad I suppose.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night, Toad spoke to Oliver.
  • Toad: I'm sorry, Mr. Oliver, if I cause to any embarrassment.
  • Oliver: That's all right, Toad. So what do you think of going forwards?
  • Toad: It was fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Toad.
  • Toad: But from now on, I'd be happy to looking forward to the future, busy going backwards so to speak.
