  • Zak Saturday
  • Rex Salazar
  • Courage
  • Eddy
  • Blossom
  • Bubbles


  • George Carlin: The characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Doc did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The characters have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Zak would be ready to collect his passengers. Zak grew crosser and crosser.
  • Zak: Time's time.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Zak: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Rex and Eddy dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Rex: Don't blame me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Rex.
  • Rex: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Zak: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • George Carlin: Retorted ZaK. He hurried away before Rex could answer. Courage was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Zak. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the bus till their train, they were kept waiting till Zak arrived. Soon Courage grew cross with Zak.
  • Courage: Late again!
  • George Carlin: He remarked as Zak panted wearly in.
  • Courage: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Zak. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • George Carlin: Zak let off steam loudly.
  • Zak: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: He hissed fiercly.
  • Zak: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Doc's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: One day, Eddy was later than ever at the junction.
  • Eddy: I'm sorry, Zak.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Eddy: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Zak: It's lucky for you I'm a guarateed connection.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Zak. Before Eddy could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Zak: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the girls. Blossom and Bubbles did their best but Zak still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Zak saw Courage ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Zak: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Zak.
  • Zak: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Courage: I feel dreadful.
  • George Carlin: Moaned Courage.
  • Courage: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home overwise.
  • Zak: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Zak. He now felt sorry for Courage, and promised to get help at the next station. Thomas set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Courage's passengers, travelling in Blossom and Bubbles all reached home safely. When Courage was better he came to thank Zak.
  • Courage: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Zak: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Zak.
  • Zak: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • George Carlin: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.
