Transcript

Ringo Starr US version

  • Ringo Starr: The engines were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the Viaduct on the Main Line. The arches needed strength-any. Sir Topham Hatt did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a longtime. The engines 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 Thomas would be ready to collect his passengers. Thomas grew crosser and crosser.
  • Thomas: Time's time.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Thomas: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Henry and James dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Henry: Don't blame me.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Henry.
  • Henry: If we hurried to cross the Viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Thomas: Run my train on time for 1 thing.
  • Ringo Starr: Retorted Thomas. He hurried away before Henry could answer. Bertie was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Thomas. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the bus till their train, they were kept waiting till Thomas arrived. Soon Bertie grew cross with Thomas.
  • Bertie: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: He remarked as Thomas panted wearily in.
  • Bertie: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Thomas. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas let off steam loudly.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed fiercely.
  • Thomas: It's those Main Line Engines. They differ about on the Viaduct, and they blamed Sir Topham Hatt's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • Ringo Starr: One day, James was later than ever at the junction.
  • James: I'm sorry, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • James: I was held up at the station, and the Viaduct made it worse.
  • Thomas: It's lucky for you I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Thomas. Before James could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the coaches. Annie and Clarabel did their best but Thomas still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Thomas saw Bertie ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Bertie: I feel dreadful.
  • Ringo Starr: Moaned Bertie.
  • Bertie: 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 otherwise.
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Thomas. He now felt sorry for Bertie, and promised to get help at the next station. Thomas set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Bertie's passengers, traveling in Annie and Clarabel all reached home safely. When Bertie was better he came to thank Thomas.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Thomas: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • Ringo Starr: With the last cheerful greeting, the 2 friends went back to work.
  • (Bertie's horn honks and Thomas' whistle toots)
