  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 11 intro)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
  • (After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surronded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)

  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: And we'll share some fun times with Thomas.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: But first, there's an important visitor arriving at Brendam Docks.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Smoke and Mirrors)
  • Michael Brandon: Smoke and Mirrors. It was the day of the children's midsummer party. Thomas was on his way to Brendam Docks. He was to meet Sir Topham Hatt and the great magician. The great magician was going to do a magic show at the party. Thomas was very excited. As he pulled into the docks, Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with the great magician.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: At the end of the party, the great magician is going to do a big trick.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Great Magician: I call it the grand finale
  • Michael Brandon: Said the great magician.
  • Great Magician: And I need some very special things for it.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas thought this was very exciting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You, Thomas, will collect them.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And if you do your job well, you can be in the magic show.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was really excited. He really wanted to be in the magic show. Sir Topham Hatt told Thomas to listen very carefully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: First, you must go to Maithwaite to pick up a blue box. Then you have to go to Maron Station to pick up "a red carpet. And lastly, you have to go to Knapford to pick up a yellow sheet.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas wasn't listening. He was dreaming about being in the magic show.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Can you remember all of that, Thomas?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas, and he chuffed away. When Thomas arrived at Maithwaite, Elizabeth was making a delivery.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be in a magic show.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I've come to collect something for the grand finale.
  • Elizabeth: How jolly.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Elizabeth. On the platform was a brand-new, bright red phone box.
  • Thomas: That must be it.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. And it was loaded onto his flatbed.
  • Thomas: Next stop, Maron Station.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted. Thomas puffed into Maron Station. Bertie the Bus was dropping off vacationers.
  • Thomas: Hello, Bertie.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be in a magic show.
  • Bertie: That's nice.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: What are you doing here?
  • Thomas: I'm here to pick up something for the grand finale.
  • Michael Brandon: On the platform was a stack of yellow beach chairs.
  • Thomas: That must be it.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. The beach chairs were loaded onto his flatbed and off Thomas chuffed. When Thomas arrived at Knapford Station, Henry was there.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be in a magic show.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas proudly.
  • Henry: That's exciting.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Henry.
  • Henry: Why have you come to Knapford?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas couldn't quite remember.
  • Thomas: I have to collect something for the grand finale. Something blue.
  • Henry: Well.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry.
  • Henry: There's a big blue flag over there.
  • Thomas: That must be it.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. The blue flag was soon loaded onto his flatbed, and Thomas puffed off to the party. Thomas was sure the great magician was going to be very pleased with him. Thomas arrived at the party. The children were very excited. They couldn't wait for the magic show to start.
  • Thomas: I have everything you asked for.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas proudly.
  • Thomas: The red phone box, the yellow beach chairs and the big blue flag.
  • Michael Brandon: The great magician was very cross.
  • Great Magician: You have brought all the wrong things. I need my red carpet, my blue box, and my big yellow sheet.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the great magician.
  • Great Magician: Without them, I can't do my grand finale..
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt awful. He had been daydreaming about being in the magic show. He hadn't listened properly to Sir Topham Hatt. He'd puffed to all the right places, but he'd picked up all the wrong things.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed sadly.
  • Thomas: I've been a very silly engine.
  • Michael Brandon: The magic show was about to start. Then an idea flew into Thomas's funnel.
  • Thomas: Please, help me unload the flatbed. Then I will pick up all the right things.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. In no time at all, Thomas was unloaded. Thomas knew he would miss the magic show, but he knew he had to be back in time for the grand finale. First, Thomas went to Maithwaite Station.
  • Thomas: Blue box, blue box.
  • Michael Brandon: He whooshed to himself. And there he saw the big blue box. Thomas was pleased. Soon it was loaded, and Thomas raced off. Next, Thomas chuffed to Maron Station.
  • Thomas: Red carpet, red carpet.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed to himself. And sure enough, there was a red carpet ready to be loaded. Thomas was very happy. Lastly, Thomas steamed into Knapford.
  • Thomas: Yellow sheet, yellow sheet.
  • Michael Brandon: He sang to himself. And there was the big yellow sheet. It was quickly loaded onto Thomas's flatbed, and Thomas raced back to the party. Thomas arrived back just in time for the grand finale. Thomas had missed almost all of the magic show, but he was pleased that he had done his job properly. The great magician began the grand finale.
  • Great Magician: Abracadabra!
  • (Children cheering)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was amazed. The children clapped and cheered.
  • Great Magician: Shazam!
  • Children: Ooh!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the children.
  • Great Magician: And now, for my best magic trick!
  • (Children cheering)
  • Michael Brandon: The children laughed and cheered. And Thomas...was the star of the show.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Here are some dots. There are lots of engines on the Sodor Railway. If we join these dots, it will make the shape of one of them. Can you guess which engine it is? Off we go! There's the funnel. It's a tall one. And a dome. It's a large dome, isn't it? There's the cab and the coal tender. Do you know which engine this is yet? Here are the wheels. And there are the buffers. It looks like a little engine... but it's an important one. That's right. It's Thomas. Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Henry is ready to leave the station. What's he pulling today? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling... horses. Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses... and hats. Now Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats and hot dogs! Can you remember what Henry is hauling? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats and hot dogs! I wonder what's next? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling... horses, hats, hot dogs, and... hay! Can you still remember all the things Henry was hauling? Let's see. Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats, hot dogs, and hay! I wonder where Henry is going? Henry is huffing his way to a horse show.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is a wonderful place. There are lots and lots of engines. Who's that puffing along the track? It's Thomas! Thomas is a bright blue tank engine with red stripes. He has six small wheels, a short funnel and dome, and the number one painted in yellow on his tanks. Thomas is always busy and is especially happy when he's with his carriages, Annie and Clarabel. Thomas knows everyone on the Island of Sodor, but he does have one special friend, and that's Percy.
  • (A wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: One day, Sir Topham Hatt told all the engines that the railway inspector was coming. He would give a special prize to the best-turned-out engine. Gordon, James and Emily were all sure a big engine would win the prize, but Thomas and his best friend Percy hoped they might win. The big engines laughed at them. Thomas and Percy had to work at the quarry. By the end of the day, Percy and Thomas were very, very dirty. Percy was sure they would never win first prize now. Thomas wanted to cheer his friend up, so they raced to the wash-down. But when they arrived, Gordon, James and Emily all looked like the smartest engines on the railway. Now Thomas was worried, but his friend Percy cheered him up. When Thomas and Percy arrived at the coaling plant, they were surprised. James biffed into a freight car. Now all the big engines, Sir Topham Hatt, and the inspector were covered in coal dust, but not Thomas and Percy. They won first prize, and each had a ribbon! Thomas knew he couldn't have done it without his friend Percy. Sometimes you need to rely on your friends.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: One day, Thomas was picking up telephone engineers. They were to mend the telephone poles. A great storm had blown them down. Then Thomas saw something wonderful. Edward told him about an old story. It said that there was something magical at the end of a rainbow. Thomas huffed and puffed all over the island. He was looking for the end of the rainbow. Thomas was so busy, he didn't have time to say hello to his friends... and he didn't have time to help his friend. Then, there was trouble. Thomas hadn't seen the telegraph pole. Thomas was stuck. He thought none of his friends would help him, but Thomas was wrong. All Thomas's friends passed on the news that he was in trouble. In no time, Harvey arrived to pull Annie and Clarabel back onto the rails. Now Thomas didn't want to look for the end of the rainbow anymore. He wanted to be really useful. Later, Thomas puffed back to Tidmouth sheds. There was the end of the rainbow, and there were all his friends. Thomas's friends are very important. They make Sir Topham Hatt's railway very special, and they make Thomas feel he is the luckiest steam engine ever.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Today, Edward, Henry and Gordon all have different jobs to do. See if you can guess who is doing which job. One engine is going to collect coal, one is going to collect freight, and another is going to collect the express. Can you guess what Gordon is doing today? Off he goes, around the bends. He's on his way. But what is he going to do? Almost there. Gordon is collecting the express at Knapford Station. Who's next? Henry. What is Henry doing today? He's got a windy way to go, around the bends, steaming along. Henry is collecting freight from the docks today. What about Edward? Can you guess what Edward is doing today? He's on his way, twisting and turning and puffing along. That's right. Edward is shunting coal cars at the coaling plant. Now they can all be really useful engines. Well done, Gordon.
  • (Gordon's whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: Well done, Henry.
  • (Henry's whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: And well done, Edward.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Sets Sail)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas Sets Sail. It was a blustery, buffety day on the Island of Sodor. Edward's coal cars creaked and cranked against the wind. Percy's mail car shuttled and shivered. But Thomas hardly noticed the wind at all. He puffed into Brendam Docks. The mayor of Sodor had ordered a brand-new sailing boat.
  • Thomas: I am to take the sailing boat to the mayor's launch party at the harbor.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas excitedly.
  • Thomas: The mayor, Sir Topham and Lady Hatt will all see the boat go into the sea for the very first time.
  • Michael Brandon: The boat had a tall mast and was painted bright red.
  • Thomas: It's wonderful.
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Thomas.
  • James: It's red-- I should be taking it.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed James.
  • Gordon: It's heavy-- I should be taking it.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Gordon. Cranky lowered the sailing boat onto Thomas's flatbed.
  • Thomas: It's not too heavy for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Cranky: You must wait for the engineer to lower the mast.
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Cranky.
  • Thomas: The mast will be no trouble for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas whistled, and he raced off. Thomas puffed proudly along. The wind was strong, and the boat was heavy, but not too heavy for Thomas. Thomas came to a steep hill. He chuffed hard, pulling the heavy boat.
  • Thomas: I can do it, I can do it.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. And soon he reached the top.
  • Thomas: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted.
  • Thomas: I did it!
  • Michael Brandon: He felt very pleased, and he steamed on. Then, Thomas met Emily.
  • Thomas: Look at my sailing boat, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted.
  • Emily: Don't you look grand.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Emily. And Thomas knew he did. Thomas felt very grand as he steamed past Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: Be careful with that tall boat.
  • Michael Brandon: She hooted.
  • Elizabeth: It's a very blustery day.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas felt far too important to take any notice. Next, Thomas puffed towards a low bridge. Rosie was waiting at the signal.
  • Rosie: Watch out, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Rosie sharply. Thomas applied his brakes and stopped just in time.
  • Rosie: The mast is too tall to go under the bridge.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rosie.
  • Thomas: Then I shall take another track.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas. Thomas chuffed proudly on. Then there was trouble. He heard a loud crunch. Thomas looked up. Tall trees were hanging over the track.
  • Thomas: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. The tall mast must have caught in the trees. Thomas couldn't move forwards or backwards. So he huffed and he chuffed, and with a mighty puff, Thomas broke free.
  • Thomas: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. But Thomas didn't know the ropes holding the sails had untied. Thomas was feeling very grand now. The wind was strong. It was blowing him along.
  • Thomas: Whee!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas cried happily. He was going faster and faster! The wind grew stronger. Thomas raced round a bend.
  • Molly: Be careful, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Molly tooted.
  • Molly: The wind is filling the boat's sails!
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas wheeshed by so quickly he didn't hear her. The mayor, Sir Topham and Lady Hatt were waiting at the harbor. They could see Thomas racing towards them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Slow down, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt. But Thomas couldn't slow down. The mayor, Sir Topham and Lady Hatt could not believe their eyes. Thomas whooshed past and raced away from them. Faster and faster around the bend in the track. Suddenly, the wind dropped, and Thomas stopped.
  • Thomas: Whew! If the wind picks up again, I'll never be able to stop at the harbor.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: The boat will not be launched, and the mayor will be very cross!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas knew that he had been wrong not to wait for the engineer at the docks.
  • Thomas: I must chuff back to the docks as quickly as I can, and I must bring the engineer to lower the mast.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Thomas was uncoupled from the flatbed, and he steamed off. Thomas's wheels whirred to a stop at the docks.
  • Thomas: Has the engineer arrived, Salty?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Salty: Oh, yes, me hearty.
  • Michael Brandon: Smiled Salty. Thomas was very relieved. The engineer climbed quickly into Thomas's cab, and Thomas steamed off. Soon, Thomas arrived at the sailing boat. The engineer rolled the sails and lowered the mast. Slowly, Thomas chuffed back to the harbor. The boat was heavy. Thomas had to puff hard. This time the wind couldn't help him. The mayor, Sir Topham Hatt and Lady Hatt were still waiting. They were happy to see Thomas, and they were happy to see the mayor's sailing boat.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt
  • Michael Brandon: I see you have decided that full steam is better than full sail.
  • Thomas: Aye, aye, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. And as he watched the boat slide into the water, Thomas was very proud to be really useful.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and Engine Roll Call starts)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew.
