  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We later begin with the Season 11 intro)
  • Children: 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.
  • (We afterwards open with the Island of Sodor opening sequence)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surrounded 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 Emily's New Coaches)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a splendid day on the Island of Sodor. Thomas was taking Annie and Clarabel back to the yards. A new engine had arrived and he wanted to say hello. The engine was beautiful with shiny paintwork and a gleaming brass dome.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, meet Emily.
  • Thomas: Hello, Emily.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, collect your coaches. You and your driver must learn the line.
  • Emily: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She answered. Thomas was impressed. Later, the only coaches Emily's driver could find were Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily's Driver: These aren't your sort of coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Emily's Driver: But I suppose they'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Annie and Clarabel felt insulted.
  • Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Clarabel whispered. Emily puffed carefully along the track.
  • Annie and Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do, how dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled the coaches. Thomas saw Emily coming down the line, pulling Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily called. But Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: Those are my coaches. Give them back!
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily didn't hear Thomas and she went on her way. Then, Edward passed and Percy. When Emily whistled hello, the engines didn't whistle back. Emily couldn't understand why they were so unfriendly. She was upset. Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to go to the docks to pick up new coaches.
  • Thomas: New coaches? But sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Really useful engines don't argue.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas didn't want new coaches, he wanted Annie and Clarabel back. When Oliver saw Emily return to the yards, he was surprised.
  • Oliver: Those are Thomas' coaches.
  • Emily: So that's why he looked cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Emily.
  • Emily: I'll go and apologize.
  • Thomas: Don't want new coaches, don't want new coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. Later, Emily was still looking for Thomas when a signalman flagged her down.
  • Signalman: Oliver hasn't cleared his signalbox.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Emily's driver.
  • Signalman: Please, go and see what's wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily could see that Oliver had broken down on the crossing. Then, Emily heard Thomas' whistle.
  • (Thomas' whistle tooting)
  • Emily: Oh dear!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas could see Oliver. He knew he could never stop in time.
  • Oliver: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily charged towards Oliver and with a huge effort, pushed him across the tracks, just in time.
  • Oliver: Thanks.
  • Emily: I did it.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Sir Topham Hatt praised Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, you were a very brave engine.
  • Oliver: The bravest.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Oliver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It gives me great pleasure to present you with two new coaches.
  • Emily: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Emily.
  • Emily: Thomas, I'm sorry I took Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I was so cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas.
  • Emily: Friends?
  • Thomas: Friends.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily loves her coaches and being part of Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Emily and The Snowplough)
  • Michael Brandon: Winter was coming to the island of Sodor. The morning ground was covered in crisp white frost. Thomas and Emily were happily chuffing up and down the line. Thomas was enjoying pulling Annie and Clarabel. He thought he was doing a grand job. But Emily had other ideas. She thought he could be doing an even grander job, so Emily decided to help Thomas by telling him what he was doing wrong. When she saw him puffing down the branch line, she cried out.
  • Emily: Slow down! You're going too fast and bumping your passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Emily saw Thomas by a bridge. He had stopped to take on water and was talking to some children.
  • Emily: Stop talking to the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: You are working and they will make you late.
  • Thomas: I'm never late.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas huffily.
  • Emily: There's always a first time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily cheerfully, and she puffed away. Thomas was cross. He loved talking to children and thought Emily was being a big bossy buffers. Annie and Clarabel agreed.
  • Thomas: I am never going to listen to Emily ever, ever again.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: So there!
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, a sleepy Thomas had to leave Tidmouth Sheds bright and early. He was to collect some freight cars from the quarry and take them to the docks. Later that morning, Sir Topham Hatt arrived with a new weather report.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is snow on the way. You must all have your snowplows fitted.
  • Emily: Excuse me, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: But Thomas has already left for the quarry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then you must find Thomas and tell him Sir Topham Hatt wants him to wear his snowplow.
  • Michael Brandon: So Emily puffed away to get her snowplow fitted. The workmen fixed Emily's snowplow on in no time at all and she set off to find Thomas. Emily was very happy. She was looking forward to telling him what to do. Thomas was taking on water at Maithwaite station. Emily puffed up in front of him. She blew her whistle, but Thomas didn't say hello.
  • Thomas: She just wants to boss me again.
  • Michael Brandon: Grouched Thomas.
  • Emily: Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: She called.
  • Emily: You must go and get your snowplow fitted.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas could hear what Emily was saying, but pretended he couldn't. He thought he was being very clever. So Emily tooted even louder again.
  • Emily: You must go and get your snowplow fitted.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Thomas: Bother snowplows!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And bother Emily! Anyway, the weather is perfectly fine.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed away as fast as he could.
  • Emily: Oh, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas delivered the freight cars to the quarry. Then set off to collect cream from the dairy. Everything was going well. But soon the clear blue sky was eaten away by dark gray clouds.
  • Driver: They look like snow clouds to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. And he was right. Soon, big flakes of white snow began to fall. Then the snow gathered into drifts and covered the tracks.
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas, as his wheels began to slip. Snow fell all over the island. Emily cut safely through the drifts with her snowplow.
  • Emily: Thomas will be in trouble now.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was right. Thomas was working harder and harder, but he had to go more and more slowly.
  • Driver: We can go on.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Thomas pulled to a slow, sad stop by a signal box. And his driver went for help. It snowed and snowed. Thomas felt very cold and twice as miserable. Then he heard the sound of an engine. Thomas was delighted until he saw who his rescuer was. It was Emily.
  • Emily: I told you to get your snowplow. Now look what's happened.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was still cross.
  • Thomas: You should say sorry for bossing me about.
  • Emily: I am sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Sorry you didn't listen to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily and Thomas chuffed into Tidmouth Sheds. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting. He did not look happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you must take Thomas to get his snowplow fitted at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you must learn to listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt bad. He didn't know it was Sir Topham Hatt who wanted him to wear his snowplow. Emily felt bad, too. She didn't like seeing Thomas in trouble.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Emily: I forgot to tell Thomas it was your idea.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You mean I have two engines that don't listen?
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, I never! Emily, you must take Thomas to get his snowplow fitted at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon the work was finished and Thomas was wearing his snowplow.
  • Thomas: Thank you for owning up.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You are a very good friend.
  • Emily: That's all right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: You are a good friend, too. But next time, if you want to stay out of trouble, just do what I say.
  • Michael Brandon: Even Thomas had to laugh.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily's New Route)
  • Michael Brandon: It was summertime on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were very busy. They carry freight and passengers up and down the lines. Sir Topham Hatt came to see Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am opening some new route for the summer.
  • Michael Brandon: He announced.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you will pull the flour mill special.
  • Emily: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily. She was pleased. Emily stopped to fill up with water on the way to the flour mill. But James was already there.
  • Emily: Sir Topham Hatt has given me the flour mill special.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • James: You're lucky.
  • Michael Brandon: James huffed.
  • James: I have to do the Black Loch run.
  • Emily: Why don't you like the Black Loch?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily.
  • James: There were boulders all over the tracks.
  • Michael Brandon: He moaned.
  • James: They bash your buffers and scratch your paint. And there's a Black Loch monster.
  • Emily: What's the Black Loch monster?
  • James: Nobody knows.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James.
  • James: Black figures move in the water and then they disappeared.
  • Emily: Oh...
  • Michael Brandon: And James puffed away. Emily was pleased she didn't have to go to Black Loch. At the flour mill, the flour had been loaded onto trucks. Emily was coupled up. Then she puffed across the countryside to Knapford Station. But the troublesome trucks saw a chance for mischief.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Hold back! Hold back!
  • Michael Brandon: They screeched. Emily pulled as hard as she could, but the troublesome trucks made her go very slowly. Emily was late delivering the flour. So they will be no fresh gray that day. Sir Topham Hatt was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This means I won't have any toast or muffins for breakfast. If you are late again, you will have to do the Black Loch run instead of James.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily didn't want to have her buffers bashed by boulders and she didn't want to see the Black Loch Monster.
  • Emily: I must get the flour to the station on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed. The next morning, the troublesome trucks tricked her again.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Off we go! Off we go!
  • Michael Brandon: They chuckled. They weren't coupled up probably.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Mustn't be late! Mustn't be late!
  • Michael Brandon: They giggled. So Emily puffed quickly away. But only half the troublesome trucks right with her. Emily arrived at the station.
  • Stationmaster: But you only got have the flour!
  • Michael Brandon: The stationmaster cried. So Emily have to go back for the rest of the troublesome trucks.
  • Emily: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily cried.
  • Emily: I don't want to get to the Black Loch run!
  • Michael Brandon: When Emily arrived at the mill, the trucks were more troublesome then ever.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Emily the late engine! Emily the late engine!
  • Michael Brandon: They sang. This made Emily very cross. And she biffed them very hard.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: They cried. And they splashed into the duck pond. Emily was covered up in a floury mess. That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you have caused confusion and delay!
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now you are to take over the Black Loch run.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was very unhappy.
  • Thomas: Wait until you tried it.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas chuffed.
  • Thomas: The Black Loch run might be nice.
  • Emily: I don't think so.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily moaned.
  • Emily: Bash buffers and a big monster. It sounds miserable to me.
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, Emily puffed sadly to the station. Lots of exciting children and vacationers climbed on board.
  • Emily: They were looking forward to their vacation.
  • Michael Brandon: She thought.
  • Emily: I mustn't let them down.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon Emily was steaming up hills and through valleys.
  • Emily: I bet it won't last.
  • Michael Brandon: She said to herself. Emily reached to murkey roars of Black Loch.
  • Emily: Oh. That's were the monsters supposed to be.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed nervously. Then there was trouble. Rocks fell and blocked the line.
  • Emily: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily had to wait for help.
  • Emily: I knew I wouldn't like this too.
  • Michael Brandon: She huffed. Suddenly, she saw something moved and mysterious moving in a water.
  • Emily: I know the monster's coming.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily gasped. Emily was scared. Her boiler quivered and her valves rattled. She wanted to steam away.
  • Emily: I never wanna see Black Loch again.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried. But Emily thought the children and the coach behind her. She was determined to get them to the vacation wherever it took. At last the water settled. And Emily saw what the monster really was. It's the family of seals. Emily was delighted. The children were delighted too. Soon the line was cleared. Emily steamed on through the countryside. The children were reached the vacation on time. That evening, Thomas and Emily both stopped to watch the seals.
  • Emily: You were right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Black Loch is a nice route after all.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin As Good As Gordon)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a beautiful fall day on the Island of Sodor. All the engines will working very hard. Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth Sheds. He had exciting news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon is to take the new Mayor of Sodor on a special tour of the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He announced. Gordon was thrilled. But then he had thought.
  • Gordon: Who will take the express, sir?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked. The other engines were excited. Pulling the express was an important job. Everyone wanted to be chosen, but Sir Topham Hatt chose Emily. When Sir Topham Hatt left, Emily was very happy. But Gordon wasn't impressed.
  • Gordon: The express is the long as passenger train on the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He sniffed.
  • Gordon: I always cross the island twice by teatime. You'll never do that.
  • Emily: I've got big wheels and I'll do my best.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Gordon: Big wheels don't make a big engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Boasted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Everyone knows I'm the best.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas thought Gordon was showing off.
  • Thomas: Twice before teatime.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Thomas: That will be hard.
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily wasn't listening to Thomas.
  • Emily: I'm going to be as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: She said eagerly. And she steamed away as fast as she could. Emily puffed into Knapford Station. She was looking forward to taking the express, but it was very very heavy.
  • Emily: Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: She gasped and she slowly pulled out of the station, but she pulled away too soon and left the brake coach behind. Emily puffed with all her might. She was determined to be fast. Emily had crossed the island once in good time.
  • Emily: I am as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed proudly. Emily had to wait for Edward at the crossing. Edward went as fast as he could, but it wasn't fast enough for Emily.
  • Emily: Hurry up, slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Emily: Or you will make me late.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward felt sad but Emily just steamed off. Emily stopped at Maithwaite Station. The express was a guaranteed connection with Bertie the bus. But Bertie hadn't arrived. He had a flat tire and was running late. Emily tried to wait. She counted to ten twice, but she felt as if her boiler would burst.
  • Emily: I'm going to be the slowest engine on Sodor.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Emily: And it's not my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: And she puffed away. When Bertie arrived, Emily had already left. Emily need to take on water. But James was at the water tower. He was pulling a slow goods train. Emily wanted to go first.
  • Emily: It doesn't matter you were late.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • James: You must wait your turn.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James crossly.
  • Emily: Express trains don't wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily and she left without taking on water. Emily went faster than ever. Her coaches rocked and rolled. And her passengers were biffed and bumped and bounced. Finally, Emily could see Brendam Docks up ahead.
  • Emily: Twice before teatime.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed happily.
  • Emily: I am as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Then there was trouble. Emily slowed down.
  • Emily: What's happening to me?!
  • Michael Brandon: She cried. She went slower and slower. Emily had run out of water. She huffed and puffed, but she had no steam left. Finally, Emily came to a complete stop. Sir Topham Hatt arrived on board James. He was very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You should have waited.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And now you have caused confusion and delay. You left the brake coach, stranded Bertie's passengers and bumped your coaches. You must learn to be more patient.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily knew Sir Topham Hatt was right. She felt very bad. She was only trying to be as good as Gordon.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She said sadly. James pulled Emily into the docks. Then, he went back to collect the express.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now I need an engine to take the slow goods train.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Emily had an idea.
  • Emily: Make I take it, sir?
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Emily: If I had to go slowly?
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt thought it was a grand idea.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The slow goods train needs lots of patience.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Emily was pleased. She was determined to do a good job. So after she took on water, and lots of coal, Emily buffered up to the slow goods train. She stopped at all the right stations. And then she left all the other engines go first. She stopped at a signal. Thomas was waiting there.
  • Emily: Hey, Thomas, I am learning patience.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed.
  • Emily: But if only I can learn it faster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas had to laugh.

  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily's Adventure)
  • Michael Brandon: It was springtime on the Island of Sodor. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. All the engines love this time of year. Emily thought the island had never look beautiful. But that night, there was a big and blustery storm. High winds swept across the island. Trees were blown down. The water tower fell over. And the roof blew right off Farmer McColl's farm. Emily was very pleased to be safe and warm in a cozy shed. She could hear the wind outside. But the next morning, Emily could not believe her eyes. The storm had made a terrible mess. Farmer McColl was looking at the damaged barn.
  • Farmer McColl: The baby calves will be cold at night. I miss fix the roof right away.
  • Michael Brandon: But Farmer McColl didn't have any timber for the roof. So he telephoned Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt came to see Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The storm blew the roof off of Farmer McColl's barn.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must take him some timbers so it can be fixed.
  • Emily: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily. Emily steamed over to the timber yards. She buffered up to the timber wagons and raced off to Farmer McColl's as fast as she could. But the storm had caused lots of damage to the lines. Workmen and trucks were clearing branches and rocks from the tracks. Emily wanted to go quickly, but she couldn't go at all.
  • Emily: Bother!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily crossly. Trevor and the workmen were trying to move the tree. But moving it was taking a long time.
  • Emily: Hurry up!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed impatiently.
  • Emily: You must work harder!
  • Michael Brandon: And she blew her whistle. Trevor was working as fast as she could. At last, he pulled the tree off the track. But Emily didn't say thank you to Trevor. All she said was...
  • Emily: About time!
  • Michael Brandon: Every time she came across workmen clearing the track, she blew her whistle and wheesh her steam. This made the workmen cross. But Emily thought it made them work harder. Then Emily came across a fallen water tower. It had crashed onto her line.
  • Emily: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: She cried. Elizabeth was helping the workmen push the tower off the track. The tower was very heavy. Emily decided to boss Elizabeth too.
  • Emily: Hurry up!
  • Michael Brandon: She wheeshed and blew her whistle as loud as she could.
  • Elizabeth: Not if you ask like that.
  • Michael Brandon: Sniffed Elizabeth crossly.
  • Emily: I've got an urgent delivery.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily. But Elizabeth didn't listen. She simply went back to work. Emily blew her whistle again. But the more she blew her whistle, the slower Elizabeth seemed to go. Emily thought she would never get to Farmer McColl's. The skies were darkening. And the night was on its way. Thomas arrived bringing more supplies.
  • Thomas: Hello!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted. Emily complained about Elizabeth.
  • Emily: She won't do one thing I'd tell her.
  • Thomas: That's because you're a big bossy boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Thomas.
  • Thomas: You should try asking nicely for a change.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily didn't like being called a bossy boiler. And she didn't want to ask nicely. But it would be nighttime soon. And the baby calves still didn't have a roof over their heads. So Emily took a deep breath.
  • Emily: I'm sorry I was rude, but can you help me get this timber to Farmer McColl's? Please? It's to help the baby calves.
  • Michael Brandon: Elizabeth smiled.
  • Elizabeth: Why certainly.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed.
  • Elizabeth: I'll get your track cleared in no time.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was surprised. Thomas was right. Asking nicely just like magic. Elizabeth pushed with all her puff. The tower was heavy. But with a mighty heave, the track was cleared.
  • Emily: Thank you!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Emily and she steamed on as fast as she could. It was nearly bedtime. Emily knew the baby calves will be getting cold. So whenever there was something on a track, she took a deep breath and said please and thank you. At last, Emily arrived at Farmer McColl's. And the timber was quickly unloaded. The barn was soon repaired. And the baby calves snuggled down on their nice soft cave.
  • Farmer McColl: Thank you, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Farmer McColl.
  • Farmer McColl: The calves will be nice and warm now.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was pleased she'd arrived on time. Asking nicely was all she had to do.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily Knows Best)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily Knows Best. The Island of Sodor has many beautiful sights. There are green fields and hills and many beautiful castles. The engines of Sodor love visit them all. One day, Emily was dropping visitors at the Ruin Castle. Once upon a time, a queen had lived there.
  • Emily: I'd like to be a queen.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought Emily.
  • Emily: Queens are in charge and tell everybody what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Down the hill at the castle, Toby and Percy arrived. They were to shunt freight cars. Percy had never worked there before.
  • Percy: Ooh, look at the castle.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy excitedly.
  • Percy: I wonder who used to live there?
  • Toby: A king and queen.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby.
  • Toby: They were rule the island and told everyone what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: And he chuffed towards the freight cars. Percy stared at the castle. He was dreaming of kings and queen.
  • Toby: Percy!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Toby.
  • Toby: Come along. We've got a lot to do today.
  • Emily: Waiting for passengers is boring.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily. Then she remembered that Toby and Percy will working near the castle.
  • Emily: It would be much more fun to visit them.
  • Michael Brandon: She said. Toby and Percy were waiting to be coupled up when Emily chuffed in. She was very excited about the passengers.
  • Emily: Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Emily: I've had an idea. Let's play a game.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy looked pleased.
  • Emily: I'll be queen and I'll tell you what to do today.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Emily: It'll be fun.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy liked the idea of having fun. But Toby thought Emily's idea was silly.
  • Toby: You have to be clever to be a queen.
  • Michael Brandon: He said wisely.
  • Toby: And know the right thing to do.
  • Emily: I always know what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily. Toby laughed. That made Emily cross.
  • Emily: I show Toby that queen Emily knows best.
  • Michael Brandon: She wheeshed. Toby was now coupled up to his freight cars. Percy thought his look like troublesome trucks.
  • Toby: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby.
  • Toby: I'll be back soon. If you can't manage the troublesome trucks, wait for me and I'll tell you what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: And Toby steam slowly away. The troublesome trucks started to moan and groan.
  • Troublesome Trucks: No you don't! (laughing)
  • Michael Brandon: They clattered and chattered. Percy knew they were going to be trouble. Emily had been watching Percy.
  • Emily: If I want to be queen, I must tell Percy what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: She thought.
  • Emily: Because I know best.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was shunting the troublesome trucks as hard as he could, but they wouldn't move. They were being very difficult. Emily chuffed to a halt.
  • Emily: (whistle toots) Percy!
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled loudly.
  • Emily: I am the queen today. I will tell you what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was worried. Toby usually knew best.
  • Emily: Take these troublesome trucks along my track.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: It's faster and they won't complain. Toby will be pleased when he sees how quick you are.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy wanted Toby to be pleased.
  • Percy: I'll do as you say, Queen Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Emily was pleased with herself. She watched as Percy blew a big wheesh of steam, Percy puffed, and he chuffed, and the troublesome trucks sped off. Emily led out a wheesh of steam. She did know best. Suddenly, there was a terrible noise.
  • (Crash!)
  • Michael Brandon: As the dust clear, Emily saw what had happened. The troublesome trucks had run into Mavis who was waiting on the track. Luckily, no one was hurt, but her load of stone had spilled all over the lines and one of the freight cars had come off the rails knocking over a telephone pole.
  • Mavis: Percy!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Mavis.
  • Mavis: You're not supposed to be on this track!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was shocked. Then there was another crash. It was Toby! His wheels had struck the telephone pole and he was derailed. Emily knew this was all her fault. But she didn't know what to do. The telephone line was down, so no one could call for help. Mavis couldn't move. She was stuck among-st the freight cars. And Percy couldn't move either.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Emily.
  • Emily: I can't be a queen. I don't know what to do. I don't know best.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby wheeshed out a big cloud of steam.
  • Toby: I know what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Toby: Emily, you must go and get help.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily knew Toby was right. She steamed off as fast as she could. Emily whooshed to a halt to Maithwaite Station. She told the station manager what had happened. Quickly, he phoned for help. Soon, Toby had been lifted back up onto the rails. He wasn't hurt, but his cowcatchers would need to be repaired. Emily chuffed into the shunting yards. Sir Topham Hatt was very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily,
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: you have caused confusion and delay. Luckily, Toby knew what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He added sternly.
  • Emily: I'm sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily said.
  • Emily: Knowing the right thing to do isn't as easy as I thought.
  • Michael Brandon: She chuffed.
  • Emily: In future, I'll leave that job to a king or a queen or to Toby.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily and The Special Cars)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily and The Special Cars. It was summer on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were excited. Gordon had set a new record for pulling the express. Emily was on her way to pick up two very special passenger cars. They had been newly painted to celebrate Gordon's record. Sir Topham Hatt was going to present them to Gordon. Emily had stopped to take on water. Diesel pulled up alongside her.
  • Diesel: You look very pleased with yourself.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel. Emily told him all about Gordon's record and collecting the passenger cars.
  • Diesel: Gordon is not the only one who's special.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel oiled proudly.
  • Emily: Well, there's nothing special about smelly old diesels.
  • Michael Brandon: Pouted Emily.
  • Emily: I haven't time to listen to you. I have to collect more coal.
  • Michael Brandon: And Emily steamed off. This made Diesel very cross and he rattled away. Later, Emily arrived at the yards. But Gordon's special cars weren't there.
  • Thomas: Diesel has already collected them.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: He said it was his job.
  • Emily: But that was my job.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Emily: I'll have to find them. I mustn't be late for the presentation ceremony.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed quickly across the island. She was looking for Diesel and the special cars. Suddenly, Emily saw Diesel waiting at a signal. He was coupled up to Gordon's special passenger cars.
  • Emily: Why have you take Gordon's cars?
  • Michael Brandon: She snapped sharply.
  • Diesel: Because...
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel began.
  • Emily: I haven't got time to listen to you.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Emily: Give me those cars.
  • Diesel: Not if you won't listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Diesel and he sped away. Emily chased after Diesel. It was getting later and later and Emily was worried. But as usual, Diesel was being devious. He knew all the tricks and many different tracks. Emily just couldn't catch him and he made her look foolish. Emily steamed into Maithwaite Station. Sir Topham Hatt was there.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where are Gordon's special cars?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked her.
  • Emily: Diesel took them, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We must find them at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt. And he climbed aboard Emily. Diesel had hidden the cars in a siding. But he wasn't feeling well. Something was wrong. He started to slow down. Up ahead, Diesel saw Emily with Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Diesel: Now I'm in trouble.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Diesel!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where are Gordon's special cars?
  • Diesel: They're in a siding, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Diesel quietly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take Emily there at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Ordered Sir Topham Hatt crossly.
  • Diesel: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel. Diesel showed Emily the cars in the siding. Emily saw black smoke coming from Diesel's engine.
  • Emily: What's wrong with your engine?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily.
  • Diesel: My engine's old.
  • Michael Brandon: Splattered Diesel.
  • Diesel: All that rushing around is warming out.
  • Emily: Then you shouldn't taken your passenger cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Diesel: And you shouldn't listen to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Diesel.
  • Emily: Why should I listen to a smelly old diesel?
  • Diesel: Because Gordon is the only one who set a record.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel quietly.
  • Diesel: I set one too.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was surprised.
  • Emily: Have you?
  • Michael Brandon: She wheeshed. This time, she listened.
  • Diesel: I shunted more freight cars in one day than any other diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel oiled and he spluttered sadly away.
  • Emily: Oh, dear.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily sadly.
  • Emily: Diesel is just as special as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily raced to Knapford with Gordon's special cars. Now she wanted Diesel to feel special too. As she puffed to Knapford Station, Emily had an idea. She told Sir Topham Hatt all about Diesel's record. And about her idea to make Diesel feel special. Sir Topham Hatt listen carefully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a very good idea, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Show Diesel to come here this afternoon.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily found Diesel. She told him he had to go to Knapford. Then Emily raced off to collect Diesel's surprise. Later at Knapford, Sir Topham Hatt presented Gordon with his special cars.
  • Gordon: Don't my passenger cars look splendid?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon proudly. Everyone agreed. Just then, Emily puffed into the station.
  • Emily: And this new diesel motor is for you, Diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Emily. Diesel was surprised.
  • Diesel: Whoa!
  • Emily: I'm sorry I didn't listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Now I know that diesels and steamies are both special.
  • Michael Brandon: Everyone cheered for Gordon and Diesel.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily and The Garbage)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily and The Garbage. Emily is a grand, green engine. She's very proud of her big wheels and her perfect, polished paintwork. One morning, Emily was very excited. Sir Topham Hatt had told her to work with a new engine.
  • Emily: I hope he's smart and useful.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled. Emily met Thomas waiting at a signal.
  • Thomas: The new engine is waiting for you at the shunting yards.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Emily: I can't wait to meet him.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Emily. And she chuffed away as fast as her boiler could bubble. Emily steamed into the shunting yards to look for the new engine. He was the dirtiest little engine she had ever seen.
  • Whiff: Hello, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Whished the new engine happily.
  • Whiff: My name's Whiff because I'm a bit smelly. You're going to help me collect garbage!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was horrified.
  • Emily: (sniffs) Oh, come on then.
  • Michael Brandon: She sighed.
  • Emily: Let's get started.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon was talking to James and Henry in a siding. When they saw Emily with Whiff, they laughed.
  • Whiff: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff.
  • James: Who's this smelly new friend with the funny whistle, Emily?
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • Gordon: We smelled you coming for miles.
  • Michael Brandon: Whished Gordon grandly.
  • Whiff: My name's Whiff.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff.
  • Henry: It suits you.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Henry.
  • Emily: Ooh.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was very embarrassed. She hurried away. Whiff puffed after her.
  • Emily: (sighing)
  • Michael Brandon: Up the line, Emily and Whiff passed more engines. When they saw Whiff, they all laughed, too. Emily was tired of being teased.
  • Emily: I must get away from Whiff.
  • Michael Brandon: She huffed. Emily pumped her pistons.
  • Whiff: Wait for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff. But Emily wasn't going to wait for Whiff. And soon, Whiff was a long way behind. Emily was glad Whiff had gone.
  • Emily: It's not my fault he can't keep up.
  • Michael Brandon: She huffed. Later, Emily had to wait for Elizabeth at a crossing.
  • Elizabeth: Where's this new engine?
  • Michael Brandon: Honked Elizabeth grandly.
  • Emily: Uh, he got lost.
  • Michael Brandon: Whished Emily.
  • Whiff: No, I didn't.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff cheerfully.
  • Whiff: Hello!
  • Elizabeth: Oh.
  • Michael Brandon: Sniffed Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: Aren't you going to introduce me to your new friend?
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily didn't want anything more to do with Whiff. She chuffed away as fast as her pistons would pump.
  • Whiff: Wait for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff cheerfully. Up ahead, Emily saw a branchline.
  • Emily: Maybe if I puffed down here, Whiff won't see me.
  • Michael Brandon: And Whiff didn't see Emily. He puffed passed on the main line. Emily chuffed all around Sir Topham Hatt's railway. She tried to hide from Whiff. But still, everywhere Emily went, Whiff always found her. In every tunnel, and in every siding. At last, Emily escaped from Whiff.
  • Emily: Thank goodness.
  • Michael Brandon: She whished.
  • Emily: Now no one will laugh at me for working with such a smelly engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Up ahead, Emily saw Spencer. He was very cross.
  • Spencer: I meant to be taking the Duke and Duchess of Boxford to an important lunch.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Spencer.
  • Spencer: But my way is blocked by all these smelly garbage wagons.
  • Emily: Flatten my funnel.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Emily. They were the garbage wagons that Emily and Whiff should have cleared earlier.
  • Spencer: Someone will have to move them.
  • Michael Brandon: Sniffed Spencer. Emily knew that was her job.
  • Emily: Oh, I suppose I'll have to move them. Ugh.
  • Michael Brandon: She shuddered. Emily buffered up. She pulled as hard as she could, but the wagons were much too heavy for her to move on her own. Just then, Gordon chuffed passed.
  • Emily: Can you help me move these garbage wagons?
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Emily.
  • Gordon: Me?
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Certainly not.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Emily: Can you help me move these garbage wagons, James?
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Emily.
  • James: (sniffing) Ew, no, thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Whished James. Emily was upset.
  • Spencer: I'm still waiting.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Spencer impatiently.
  • Emily: If Whiff was here now, he'd be happy to help me.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily sighed.
  • Emily: He wanted to be my friend, but I wasn't kind to him. I must fine Whiff and say sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily looked high and low for Whiff. But he was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Whiff's whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: Then, at last, she heard Whiff's funny whistle.
  • Whiff: Hello, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff cheerfully.
  • Whiff: I was wondering where you'd gone to.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, I ran away from you.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Emily.
  • Whiff: That's all right.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff.
  • Whiff: I'm just glad you found me. Let's get to work!
  • Michael Brandon: Spencer was getting very impatient.
  • Emily: Don't worry, Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Emily.
  • Emily: Whiff is here to help now.
  • Spencer: Freeze my firebox.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Spencer when he saw Whiff.
  • Spencer: That dirty little engine can't move all these garbage wagons.
  • Emily: We're going to move them together.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Emily.
  • Whiff: Oh, thank you, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Whiff. Spencer watched as Emily and Whiff coupled up to the garbage wagons and quickly shunted themway. Spencer was very impressed.
  • Spencer: Whiff is a very, very useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled.
  • Emily: I know.
  • Michael Brandon: Bubbled Emily happily.
  • Emily: And he's my new good friend, too.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Engine Roll Call)

Thomas - he's the cheeky one, James - is vain but lots of fun, Percy - pulls the mail on time, Gordon - thunders down the line, Emily - really knows her stuff, Henry - toots and huffs and puffs, Edward - wants to help and share, Toby - well let's say, he's square.
