Transcript

  • (We open this episode with a CGI Thomas passing through a bridge)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then see the engine countdown and we begin the season)
  • (Upon this, we begin with Thomas being ready for the morning)
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • 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)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (A wheesh of steam appears and we begin today's episode)
  • Michael Brandon: Today on the Island of Sodor, we'll see what happens when Henry loses his freight cars.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: And we'll share some fun times with devious Diesel.
  • ​(Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: But first, Percy sees something surprising in the sky.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Spaceship)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Spaceship. It was a foggy night on the Island of Sodor. The engines' lamps burned brightly. And the fog swirled and twirled around their wheels as the engines headed home. All except for Percy. A valve had come loose in his cylinder. Percy had broken down. Thomas chuffed in.
  • Thomas: Hello, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Percy: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped happily. Thomas buffered up to Percy and they headed home towards Tidmouth sheds. The fog was thick. Thomas wanted to be quick. Suddenly, Percy peeped...
  • Percy: Look, Thomas. There are flashing lights in the sky.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas couldn't see any lights.
  • Percy: It must be a spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Thomas: A spaceship?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Are you sure?
  • Percy: Sure as I'm a little green engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Percy. He was very excited, and that made Thomas excited, too. Thomas and Percy arrived at Tidmouth sheds.
  • Percy: I've seen the spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy whistled excitedly.
  • Gordon: Huh!
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: What a foolish little engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas didn't like Gordon calling Percy foolish. Then Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, tonight you must take Percy's mail cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was happy to do this. Now, he could find Percy's spaceship.
  • Thomas: I'll show you that Percy isn't a foolish little engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted to Gordon. And he set off into the fog. Thomas chuffed to the top of Gordon's hill. He was looking for the spaceship. There, in the distance, he saw some flashing lights.
  • Thomas: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: There's Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: And he whished down the hill. Thomas puffed closer and closer, but it wasn't a spaceship. It was a circle of workman's lights. The workmen were fixing some broken track. Thomas was very disappointed.
  • Thomas: I must find Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled. So he chuffed on through the fog. Then Thomas saw another flashing light.
  • Thomas: Hooray.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • Thomas: There's Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed closer and closer. But it wasn't Percy's spaceship. It was the lamp in the lighthouse flashing on and off.
  • Thomas: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. But he still wanted to find Percy's spaceship, so he puffed on through the fog. Thomas was very tired, and it was very late. He had searched everywhere. How was he going to show Gordon that Percy had seen a spaceship? Then, suddenly, he saw them. These flashing lights were moving in the sky.
  • Thomas: There must be Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. He was very excited. Thomas pumped his pistons and raced after the flashing lights. The spaceship was flying lower and lower in the sky. Suddenly, Thomas didn't feel tired anymore. Thomas's wheels clickety-clacked on the rails of the track to see Jeremy the Plane coming in to land at the airport.
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Jeremy the Plane must be Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt very sad. He hadn't found a spaceship. Worst of all, he had let down his friend Percy. Thomas puffed away. He was so tired, the mail cars felt very heavy now.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt will be cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I've spent all night looking for Percy's spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas knew that now he couldn't deliver the mail cars on time. He needed help. So he chuffed back to Tidmouth as fast as his aching axles would spin. When Thomas arrived at Tidmouth sheds, Percy was still at the repair yard.
  • Gordon: How many spaceships did you find?
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon grandly.
  • Thomas: It wasn't a spaceship.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: It was Jeremy the plane coming in to land.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt foolish, but he still had to be really useful.
  • Thomas: Gordon, I need your help.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Thomas: You are faster and stronger than any engine. If we share the cars, the mail can still be delivered by breakfast.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Gordon feel important. And Gordon liked feeling important. So Gordon took half the mail cars and Thomas took the others...until all the mail was delivered by breakfast. The next night there was no fog.
  • Thomas: Look.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted.
  • Thomas: There's Jeremy the plane.
  • Michael Brandon: He was very excited. All the engines watched Jeremy coming in to land at the airport. It was a magical sight.
  • Percy: I think Jeremy's better than a spaceship any day.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy. And Thomas had to agree.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Here are some dots. If we join the dots, we will see one of the engines on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. I wonder which engine it is. Let's join the dots and find out. Here we go. There's a tender at the back. And there's the cab, and the dome, and the funnel. Can you tell who it is yet? This engine's got one, two, three, four wheels and one wheel arch just in front of the cab. Do you know who it is? It's Edward! Hello, Edward.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Toby is puffing along his branch line. Suddenly, he sees something. There's a strange-looking shadow in the field. Toby wonder what it is. Can you guess? This shadow is long and it has four long arms. The four long arms are going slowly round in a circle. Can you guess what it is? That's right, it's a windmill. There's another shadow on the side of Farmer McColl's barn. Toby wonders what it is. Can you guess? The shape at the top looks like a hat. And there are two arms that stick straight out. Can you guess what it is? That's right, it's a scarecrow. Now, Toby sees another shadow. This shadow is getting smaller and smaller. Toby wonders what it is. Can you guess? It's a round shape with something spinning at the top. Can you guess what it is? Of course. It's Harold the Helicopter. Hello, Harold. Did you guess what all the shadows were? Toby did. Well done, everyone.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (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 Diesel. Diesel is a diesel engine. He runs on diesel oil, not coal. Diesel is very proud to be the first diesel engine to arrive on the Island of Sodor. He's black with six wheels and is sometimes called Devious Diesel. He enjoys telling steamies that soon, they'll all be sent to the scrap yard.
  • (A wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: One day, Diesel was at the quarry, Thomas arrived to help. Diesel decided to tease Thomas. First, he shunted Thomas under the hopper. He told Thomas he was a stinky steamy. Then Diesel told Thomas that Sir Topham Hatt was thinking of scrapping steamies. Thomas was worried. And that made Diesel laugh.
  • (Diesel chuckling)
  • Michael Brandon: The next day, Salty arrived with new fuel from the mainland. Diesel was very excited. The new fuel made his axles tingle. He revved his engine faster and faster. He wanted Thomas to see he was the fastest engine in the world. Suddenly, Diesel's engine coughed. Then, it started to splutter. Black, smelly smoke billowed from his exhaust. The yard manager said it was the new fuel. Water must have leaked into the tanks. Diesel felt very sick. He couldn't do anything. Worse, Diesel had to wait to be rescued. Thomas arrived with some new fuel. When his tank was filled, Diesel's engine whirred and purred perfectly. Diesel thanked Thomas for making him feel better. Even Diesel likes to be really useful.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: One day, Diesel met Emily at the water tower. Emily was to pick up special passenger cars for Gordon. Diesel wanted to tell Emily something important. But she whooshed away huffily. When Emily arrived to pick up the cars, Diesel had taken them. Emily chased Diesel all over the island. Diesel was fast. And Diesel was devious. Emily couldn't catch him... until finally, Diesel's engine broke down. It was too old. Diesel told Emily he had taken the cars because he was upset. Gordon wasn't the only one to set a record. Diesel had set a record, too. He had shunted more freight cars in one day than any other diesel. Emily wanted Diesel to have a prize. So later, she puffed in with a brand-new engine. Diesel was so happy, he forgot to be oily. Sir Topham Hatt and all his engines wanted Diesel to know he was special. Diesel had never felt special before. He even started to think that maybe... maybe steamies weren't so bad after all.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: All the engines on Sodor are a bright bold color. But this engine has been working in the coaling plant today and is covered in coal dust. How can you tell who it is? This engine has a round face and boiler. Do all the engines have round faces? No. Toby and Salty have square faces. So it can't be either of them. What else can you see? This engine has a separate coal tender at the back. Do all the other engines have a separate coal tender? No. Thomas and Percy don't. So it can't be either of them. Now look at the engine's funnel. It's very tall. What about the other engines? Do they all have tall funnels? No. Gordon and Henry have short funnels. So it can't be either of them. Who's left? Edward and James. Edward and James both have round faces, separate coal tenders and tall funnels. It's time for this engine to have a wash down. What color can you see now? Red. So it can't be Edward. It must be James. Hello, James.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Henry's Lucky Day)
  • Michael Brandon: Henry's Lucky Day. The winter holidays were coming and a thick blanket of snow covered the Island of Sodor. Snowdrifts blocked the lines, and the tracks were very slippery. The engines felt frozen from their funnels to their footplate. But Henry puffed happily through the snowy countryside. None of his lines were blocked.
  • Thomas: You are the only engine to have made your deliveries on time today.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: You must have lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry saw that none of the other engines were back.
  • Henry: Maybe you're right. Maybe I do have lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. That night when the engines were all asleep, Henry thought how pleased he was to have lucky trucks.
  • Henry: Now I will always be on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry.
  • Henry: And that means I can be a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: But the next morning when Henry went to the yard, his lucky trucks weren't there.
  • Henry: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Henry.
  • Henry: Where are my lucky trucks?
  • Thomas: Edward took them.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: He needed to take coal to the villages.
  • Michael Brandon: Then Sir Topham Hatt arrived at the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Henry, I've got a very important special for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A delivery of presents has arrived at the airport. You must collect them and take them to the children in the villages.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry puffed to the airport. But soon he was in trouble. Gordon's Hill was very icy. Every time Henry tried to puff up the hill, he slid back down again.
  • Henry: I need my lucky trucks back.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry huffed.
  • Henry: I can't make my deliveries without them. Must find Edward. Must find Edward.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Henry. Then a snowslide came down and blocked Henry's way.
  • Henry: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry.
  • Henry: If I had my lucky trucks, this would never have happened.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry puffed up the line. He saw pipes across the track. They were blocking his way.
  • Molly: I thought you were collecting presents.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Molly.
  • James: You're supposed to be at the airport.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • Henry: Edward has my lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Henry.
  • Henry: I must find them.
  • Rocky: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Rocky.
  • Rocky: I'll have the line cleared in no time.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry waited sadly as Rocky lifted the pipes from the tracks. Then he chuffed on to find Edward and his lucky trucks. But every way that Henry chuffed, there were more delays.
  • Thomas: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: It has taken me a long time to clear this line.
  • Henry: It's not your fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry whistled.
  • Henry: I need to find Edward and my lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: And Henry puffed sadly away. Henry couldn't find Edward anywhere.
  • Henry: I'll never see my lucky trucks again.
  • Michael Brandon: He sighed. But when he puffed into the frosty forest, there was Edward with Henry's lucky trucks.
  • Henry: I found you.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry chuffed excitedly. But he puffed too quickly. His wheels slid on the icy tracks. And he biffed right into his lucky trucks.
  • Henry: Oh, no! I've broken my lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Henry. Henry didn't know what to do.
  • Henry: I'm not going anywhere without my lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Henry.
  • Edward: But they're broken.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Edward.
  • Edward: And if you don't collect the presents soon, the children won't have anything to open in the morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry thought about how sad the children would be.
  • Henry: I have to get to the airport somehow.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry.
  • Henry: Even without my lucky trucks.
  • Michael Brandon: So Henry chuffed away to the airport. The tracks were clear now, and the more Henry thought about the children, the less he thought about his lucky trucks. Henry puffed up Gordon's hill. The track was very icy. His wheels started to spin, but Henry puffed harder and harder. He inched his way over the top of the hill. Soon, Henry arrived at the airport. He collected his presents...and puffed across the island, making his deliveries. Now, Henry didn't think about his lucky trucks once. All he could think about was delivering the presents on time. Children were waiting at the station.
  • Children: Good old Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: They cheered. Henry felt very proud. And he steamed along the track.
  • Henry: Only one more delivery.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry. With or without his lucky trucks, Henry knew he mustn't let the children down.
  • (Children cheering)
  • Henry: I've delivered all the presents.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Henry happily.
  • Henry: And without my lucky trucks. Maybe the trucks weren't so lucky after all.
  • Michael Brandon: But when Henry saw the children's smiling faces, he knew he was still the luckiest engine.
  • (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.
