  • Narrator: One day, Bertie the Bus was resting at the road yards, when Gordon puffed up. He hated Bertie.
  • Gordon: What's this? A bus? He's slow and out to date. In a race, I'll beat him and I shall win. Then, I am better than him.
  • Narrator: Bertie was very sad. He droved away.
  • Gordon: I have to go faster than that slow bus.
  • Narrator: Thomas could see that Bertie was unhappy.
  • Thomas: What's wrong?
  • Bertie: Gordon thinks I am slow and out to date.
  • Thomas: Don't worry. Your driver says you're faster, as Sir Topham Hatt's engines.
  • Bertie: Aw, thanks.
  • Narrator: Bertie was happy again and droved back to the yards. Duck puffed to see him.
  • Duck: Hello, Bertie.
  • Bertie: Hello, Duck.
  • Duck: I am to pull an passanger train to the station.
  • Bertie: Yes, Duck.
  • Duck: I must be going now. I must be right on time. Good bye.
  • Narrator: And Duck puffed away with his passanger train. The next morning, Gordon was boasting about being the fastest than Bertie.
  • Gordon: I show him how fast I can go.
  • Narrator: Later, the race was about to start. The conductor said.
  • Conductor: Ready, set, go!
  • Narrator: Bertie started to go in full speed, and Gordon as well. Bertie is in front, Gordon is in second. Gordon was very cross.
  • Gordon: Hey! You bus shouldn't be fast as me!
  • Narrator: But Bertie ignored him.
  • Bertie: I must go fast as Gordon.
  • Narrator: And he did. Gordon was more crosser than ever.
  • Gordon: I wanna win, I wanna go faster than Bertie.
  • Narrator: But Bertie was too fast. Bertie and Gordon raced though bridges, tunnels and countrysides.
  • Gordon: I am trying to go in full speed, like that bus.
  • Narrator: But Bertie was still racing really fast. Gordon was getting more and more cross.
  • Gordon: I am gonna get that red road puffball.
  • Narrator: Bertie raced through the road hill. Gordon didn't see him. he got more and more and more cross.
  • Gordon: Ugh!! I still have to get that bus!
  • Narrator: Up ahead, there was a bridge which road vehicles and engines cross. Bertie crossed it first, Gordon puffed up second, a lot more crosser.
  • Bertie: I am gonna get to the station.
  • Gordon: No, you can't!
  • Narrator: Bertie raced a lot faster. leaving Gordon far behind.
  • Bertie: I've done it! I've done it!
  • Narrator: Bertie reached into the last station. Gordon puffed up next to him. Everyone is to celebrate Bertie's victory. Gordon was now embarrased.
  • Gordon: I'm sorry, I thought you were a slow bus.
  • Bertie: That's all right, Gordon. I am a winner.
  • Gordon: Bertie, I now knew that you are a really useful bus.
  • Narrator: Bertie smiled. Later, Sir Topham Hatt was cross with Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon! I am very dissapointed with your behaviour! You've bullied Bertie! He's a really useful bus, and you know it! For your punishment, you'll be staying in the sheds for the next two months!
  • Gordon: Two months?!?! You can't be serious!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, Gordon! I am serious! That should have you think about what you've done, and how you behave better when you are in the sheds.
  • Narrator: Bertie laughed.
  • Bertie: Serves Gordon right for thinking I am slow.
  • Narrator: Gordon's face when as red as the signal.
