  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Edward Helps Out)
  • George Carlin: One day, Edward was in the shed where he live with the other engines. They were all bigger than Edward and boasted about it.
  • Gordon: The driver won't choose you again.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wants strong engines like us.
  • George Carlin: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Edward.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Edward: Oh yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward. So they lit his fire, made lots of steam and Edward puff away. The other engines were very cross of being left behind. Edward worked hard all day. The coaches thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased.
  • Edward: I'm going out again tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Edward told the other engines that night.
  • Edward: What do you think at that?
  • George Carlin: But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy that he fell asleep at once. Next morning, Edward woke up to find nothing had change. Gordon was still boasting.
  • Gordon: You watch me, little Edward, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you. Goodbye, little Edward. Look out for me this afternoon.
  • George Carlin: Edward went off to do some shunting. He like shunting. It was fun playing with freight cars. He would come out quietly and gave them a push. Then he would stop, and the silly freight cars will go bump into the each other.
  • Cars: Oh!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Cars: Whatever is happening?
  • George Carlin: Edward played till there were no more freight cars. Then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. Gordon was cross. Instead of pulling shiny new coaches, he was pulling a dirty freight train.
  • Gordon: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Gordon can't get up the hill.
  • George Carlin: The porter called to Edward's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Edward and push him please?
  • George Carlin: They found Gordon halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severely.
  • Driver: You're not trying.
  • Gordon: I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The noisy freight cars hold an engine back so!
  • George Carlin: Edward's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Gordon: No use at all!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: No good.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Gordon: I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Edward: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. Edward pushed and puffed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Gordon found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Gordon: I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: He said proudly. He forgot all about kind Edward and didn't say thank you. Edward was left out of breath and far behind, but he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink and the driver said...
  • Driver: I'll get out my paint tomorrow, and give you your beautiful coat of blue with red stripes, then you'll be the smartest engine in the shed.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Trouble In The Shed)
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster came in.
  • Stationmaster: There's trouble in the shed, sir. Henry was sulking. There's no train and the passengers are saying this is a bad railway.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We cannot allow that.
  • George Carlin: He found Gordon, James and Henry looking very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, Henry. It's time your train was ready.
  • Gordon: Henry's not going!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: We won't shunt like little tank engines. That was Thomas' job. We are important tender engines. You fetch our coaches and we will pull them. Tender engines don't shunt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see about that.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No engine on my railway is too important for small jobs.
  • George Carlin: And he hurried away to find Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The yard has never been the same since Thomas left to run his branch line.
  • George Carlin: He thought sadly. Edward was shunting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Leave those freight cars please, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to push coaches for me in the yard.
  • Edward: Thank you, sir. That will be a nice change.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine. Off you go then.
  • George Carlin: So Edward found coaches for the three engines and that day, the train's ran as usual. But next morning, Edward looked unhappy. Gordon came clanking pass hissing rudely.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bless me!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What a noise!
  • Edward: They all hissed me, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Answered Edward.
  • Edward: They say tender engines don't shunt and last night they said I have gray wheels. I haven't have I, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Edward, you have nice blue ones, and I'm proud of you. Tender engines do shunt, but all the same we do need another tank engine here.
  • George Carlin: He went to the workshop and they showed them all sorts of engines. At last, he saw a smart little green engine with four wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's the one.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If I choose you, will you work hard?
  • Percy: Oh sir, yes sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine. I'll call you Percy.
  • Percy: Yes sir, thank you sir.
  • George Carlin: And Sir Topham Hatt brought Percy back to the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward.
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here's Percy. Will you show him everything?
  • George Carlin: Percy soon learned what he had to do and they had a happy afternoon. Then Henry came by hissing as usual.
  • Percy: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Went Percy. Henry jumped and ran back to the shed.
  • Edward: How beautifully you wheeshed him!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Edward.
  • Edward: I can't wheesh like that.
  • Percy: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: That's nothing. You should hear them in the workshop. You have to wheesh loudly to make yourself heard.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Thomas arrived.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt sent to me. I expect he wants help.
  • George Carlin: He said to Edward.
  • Edward: Sh, sh, here he comes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas, you've been quick. Listen, Henry, Gordon and James are sulking they say they won't shunt like little tank engines, so I have shut them up and I want you both to run a line for a while.
  • Thomas: Little tank engines indeed.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Thomas.
  • Thomas: We'll show them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And Percy will help too.
  • Percy: Oh sir, yes sir, please sir.
  • George Carlin: Answered Percy. Edward and Thomas worked the main line greeting each other as they pass by. Percy puffed along the branch line. Thomas was anxious about Annie and Clarabel, but both driver and conductor promise to take care of them. They were fewer trains but the passengers didn't mind. They knew the three other engines were having a lesson. Gordon, James and Henry were cold, lonely and miserable. They wish now they haven't been so silly.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Edward The Really Useful Engine)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor are good at different things. Gordon is a very good express, Percy is good at carrying the mail and when Edward is not hauling freight cars, he is very good at being a back engine. When engines have heavy loads, Edward buffers up behind and helps push. But Edward is old. Some engines think this makes him unreliable.
  • Gordon: Edward is a useless old steam-pot.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon sniffed.
  • Gordon: He should be retired.
  • Percy: But he doesn't have tires.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Thomas: Retired.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Means taken out of service.
  • Gordon: And not a moment too soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon. And the other big engines agreed with him, but Percy was very upset. Later, his driver asked him why he looked so glum. Percy told him about Edward.
  • Percy: The big engines don't think he's useful anymore.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Percy's driver saw Sir Topham Hatt and told him what Percy had said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will attend to the matter immediately.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt had a plan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The new loop line is completed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to teach Stepney how to run it properly.
  • Edward: But sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Edward: Who will look after the freight cars?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck will do your work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt replied. When the other engines heard Duck was going to help them, they were pleased.
  • Henry: Duck is very reliable.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Gordon: It makes no difference to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon pompously.
  • Gordon: I don't need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed away. Edward enjoyed working with Stepney. It was great fun delivering passengers to stations in the beautiful countryside. But Duck was not happy. The trucks were playing their silly games.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Duck should play with other ducks cause he's no good at pulling trucks. Quack, quack, quack, quack. Hold back, hold back.
  • Alec Baldwin: They giggled. Duck found himself going slower, and slower, and slower. Halfway up Gordon's Hill, his wheels stopped all together. Duck was stuck.
  • Duck's Driver: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Duck's Driver: This is Gordon's line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck's guard phoned the signalman to warn him.
  • Signalman: It's too late to switch Gordon to the middle line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You'll have to flag him down.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon saw the guard.
  • Gordon: If I stop on this hill, I'll never get started again.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said crossly and he buffered up to Duck. Gordon tried to set off again, but his wheels spun and spun.
  • Gordon's Driver: It's no use. We need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: I'll send for Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was cross. Edward was excited. He was going to be a back engine for two trains. Edward cheerfully buffered up and the strange train set off.
  • (Edward pushes Gordon and Duck to Knapford)
  • Alec Baldwin: They chuffed gently into the station.
  • (Gordon stops on the platform)
  • Boy: Look at that!
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed a boy.
  • Boy: The back engine must be the strongest and the best.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was embarrassed. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have set rude things about Edward. He proved today that he is useful reliable and very helpful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon felt very ashamed. The next morning, Gordon apologized.
  • Gordon: Thank you for helping me Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You really are a useful engine.
  • Edward: It's good to be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Edward chuffed happily. Sir Topham Hatt's plan had worked. There was no more talk about Edward retiring.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Cow On The Line)
  • George Carlin: Edward was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty cattle cars to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Edward was heading for trouble.
  • Edward: Come on! Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Cars: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars. Edward puffed and clanked, the cars rattled and screamed. Some cows were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Edward clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some cars were left behind.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • George Carlin: Edward felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to cattle cars.
  • Edward: Bother those cars!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Edward: 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 Gordon and Henry heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Gordon: Fancy allowing cars to break your train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • George Carlin: Old Toby was cross.
  • Toby: You couldn't help it, Edward. They've never met cows. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • (Edward's whistle toots and puffs away)
  • George Carlin: Some days later, Gordon rushed through Edward's Station.
  • Gordon: Boop boop! Mind the cows! Hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Coaches: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled his coaches. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Gordon that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Gordon's Driver: Whoa, Gordon!
  • George Carlin: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Gordon: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: It's only a cow! Shooh! Shooh!
  • George Carlin: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the cow wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Henry arrived.
  • Henry: What's this? A cow? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: Henry backed away nervously.
  • Henry: I don't want to hurt her.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, Henry'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. Percy will take her along.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • Henry: Not a word.
  • Gordon: Keep it secret.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Gordon and Henry to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • (Crickets chirping; owl hoots)
  • Edward: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • Edward: Two big engines afraid of a cow.
  • Gordon: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: 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 I mean, my dear Edward?
  • Edward: Yes, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward. Gordon felt somehow that Edward "saw" only too well.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bertie's Chase)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Edward was waiting to pick some passengers from Thomas' train.
  • Edward: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Thomas? 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 about Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Thomas. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Bertie Bus 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.
  • Bertie: Stop, stop! I've got Thomas' passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Bertie, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Edward was gone.
  • Bertie: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Bother Thomas' fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Bertie: I'll catch Edward or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Bertie: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Bertie as he reached the top.
  • Bertie: Oh no! Edward's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Bertie toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Bertie skitted into the yard.
  • Bertie: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Bertie. He was just in time to see Edward puffed away.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • 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 Edward. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Bertie 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 Bertie chased after Edward once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the coaches as Edward snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Edward: Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Edward: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Edward's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Bertie. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Edward: I'm sorry about the chase, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Bertie: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: Late at junction. You didn't know about Thomas' passengers.
  • Edward: Peep peep! Goodbye, Bertie! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Bertie raced back to tell Thomas that all was well.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Bertie, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a very good friend indeed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Saved From Scrap)
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt works his engines hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Edward: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Edward called to Thomas.
  • Thomas: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas cheekily. Thomas was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into cars and Edward pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Edward in the yard. It was a traction engine.
  • Edward: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Trevor: I'm Trevor. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Edward: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Trevor: 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: Edward snorted.
  • Edward: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm a useful engine. What work did you do?
  • Trevor: 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: Trevor shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Trevor: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Edward set off for the station.
  • Edward: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Trevor, I must.
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who liked engines. But strangely none of them would have room for a traction engine at home.
  • Edward: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then...
  • Edward: Peep! Peep! Why didn't I think of him before.
  • George Carlin: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Vicar: Hello, Edward. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a traction engine in the scrapyard, Vicar. He'll be broken up next week. Jem Cole says he never drove a better engine.
  • Edward: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Vicar: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied the Vicar. Jem Cole came on Saturday.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's comin to see you, Trevor. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Trevor: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Trevor.
  • Jem Cole: He will when I lit your fire and clean you up.
  • George Carlin: The Vicar and his two boys arrived that evening. Trevor hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Vicar: Show your paces, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said the Vicar. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Vicar: I've got him cheap, Jem, cheap.
  • Jem Cole: Did ye hear that Trevor?
  • George Carlin: Cried Jem.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Trevor: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Trevor. Now Trevor's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Edward every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Trevor 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.
  • Trevor: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Edward's Exploit)
  • George Carlin: Bertie the Bus was giving some visitors the tour on the Island of Sodor. It was their last afternoon, and Edward was preparing to take them to meet Bill and Ben. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Henry: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • James: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked James.
  • Gordon: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Duck.
  • Duck: You're all jealous. Edward's better than any of you.
  • BoCo: You're right, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: Edward's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Edward: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward, as he finally puffed out of the station. Bill and Ben were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special.
  • (Bill and Ben take the visitors to their home)
  • George Carlin: Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Edward took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Edward. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Edward's wheels slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack...
  • (Snap!)
  • George Carlin: ...something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Edward?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned engine. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Edward: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Edward. Edward puffed and pulled his hardest. But his wheels kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Edward. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with freight cars.
  • Edward: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Edward: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Edward's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearily, but unbeaten, Edward steamed in. Henry was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Edward, his driver and fireman. Duck and BoCo saw to it that Edward was left in peace. Gordon and James remain respectfully silent.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Edward, Trevor and The Really Useful Party)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine was old-fashioned but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Edward the Blue Engine. Early one morning, Trevor was chuffing about the Vicarage Orchard. He had important news for Edward.
  • Trevor: The Vicar says that not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for his seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction.
  • George Carlin: Chattered Trevor.
  • Trevor: Giving rides to all the visitors. The Vicar is putting up posters all about it.
  • Edward: I'd like to help too.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Edward.
  • Edward: But without my rails, I wouldn't be much good at the garden party.
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful day but Edward was worried.
  • Edward: I wish there was something I can do for a party.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: I'd like to be helpful like Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Edward's driver laughed.
  • Driver: You're helpful in your own way, and that's on the railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, it was Trevor's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news.
  • Trevor: The Vicar's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party.
  • George Carlin: But Edward had an idea.
  • Edward: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: Everything is going to be all right.
  • George Carlin: Then he explained to his driver.
  • Edward: The Vicar can paste his posters on my cab and coaches, so wherever I go, they'll go too.
  • Driver: Well done, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: I'm sure Sir Topham Hatt would agree.
  • George Carlin: As indeed he did. Edward steamed happily to the stations collecting his passengers.
  • Passengers: Look!
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: The Vicar is holding a party. We must go do that.
  • George Carlin: Later Trevor was resting in the orchard shed when Bertie rolled by.
  • Bertie: Hello, Trevor. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?
  • Trevor: I'm not dozing, I'm resting.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor. Then he told Bertie about the Vicar's party.
  • Bertie: I'll be there too.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Bertie.
  • Bertie: I'm not sure people would wanna ride on an old traction engine after traveling in the smart red bus like me.
  • George Carlin: The party day arrived. It had rained heavenly during the night and the orchard grove was soaked.
  • Trevor: Rain and mud won't spoil my day.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor.
  • Driver: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed his driver.
  • Driver: We'll stay on the road then we won't get bogged down.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was soon busy trending up and down the quiet country lane, carrying lots of laughing children. He was just turning the corner when he heard Bertie.
  • Bertie: Hello, old timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. People had come from all other the island.
  • George Carlin: Trevor gave Bertie a cheerful whistle, and turned backed toward the orchard. Then there was trouble.
  • Bertie: Help, I'm stuck!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bertie. His wheels had sunk deep in the orchard mud. Terence the Tractor arrived just in time.
  • Terence: I'm the one who has to plough fields.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Terence.
  • Terence: We better get you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Using strong ropes, Terence and Trevor pulled Bertie cleared the mud.
  • Trevor: This will teach Bertie a thing or two.
  • George Carlin: Trevor chuffered to himself. At last, Bertie was on the road again.
  • Bertie: Thank you, Trevor. You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all.
  • Trevor: No.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Trevor.
  • Trevor: But you were. Just for a little while.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the Vicar arrived to see Edward and his driver.
  • Vicar: Thanks to your good idea about the posters. 100s of people payed to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children.
  • George Carlin: Edward was very pleased and Trevor fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last.
