Better Late Than Never

  • Ringo Starr: The characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Wilhelmina 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 Ash would be ready to collect his passengers. Ash grew crosser and crosser.
  • Ash: Time's time.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Ash: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Virgil and Al dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Virgil: Don't blame me.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Virgil.
  • Virgil: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Ash: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • Ringo Starr: Retorted Ash. He hurried away before Virgil could answer. Omi was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Ash. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the bus till their train, they were kept waiting till Ash arrived. Soon Omi grew cross with Ash.
  • Omi: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: He remarked as Ash panted wearily in.
  • Omi: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Ash. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash let off steam loudly.
  • Ash: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed fiercely.
  • Thomas: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Wilhelmina's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Al was later than ever at the junction.
  • Al: I'm sorry, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Al: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Ash: It's lucky for you I'm a guaratee connection.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Ash. Before Al could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Ash: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the coaches. Suzy and Pietra did their best but Ash still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Ash saw Omi ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Ash: What's the matter?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Ash.
  • Ash: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Omi: I feel dreadful.
  • Ringo Starr: Moaned Omi.
  • Omi: 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.
  • Ash: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Ash. He now felt sorry for Omi, and promised to get help at the next station. Ash set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Omi's passengers, travelling in Suzy and Pietra all reached home safely. When Omi was better he came to thank Ash.
  • Omi: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Ash: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: 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 two friends went back to work.

Pop Goes Ken

  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy is very proud of being a cell. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard too and makes everything ran like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The Beedrill and coaches behave well, the passengers even stopped grumbling. But the characters didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Ozzy: There are two ways of doing things.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy told them.
  • Ozzy: The cell way, or the wrong way. I'm a cell and...
  • Virgil, Terry and Al: Don't we know it!
  • Ringo Starr: The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Wilhelmina introduce him.
  • Wilhelmina: Here is Ken. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Ozzy.
  • Ken: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Purred Ken in an oily voice.
  • Ken: Please to meet you, Ozzy. Is that Al and Virgil and Terry too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • Ringo Starr: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They murmured.
  • Characters: We are pleased to have in our yard.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy had his doubts.
  • Ozzy: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. Ken purred after him.
  • Ken: Your worthy Wil...
  • Ozzy: Wilhelmina to you.
  • Ringo Starr: Ordered Ozzy. Ken looked hurt.
  • Ken: Your worthy Wilhelmina thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We trainers don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Ozzy: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my Beedrill while I fetch Terry's coaches.
  • Ringo Starr: Ken delighted to show off, purred away. When Ozzy returned, Ken was trying to take some Beedrill from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Ken found them hard to move.
  • Ken: Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: The Beedrill groaned.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy watched with interest. Ken lost patience.
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: He roared, and gave a great heave. The Beedrill jerked forward.
  • Beedrill: Ohhh!
  • Ringo Starr: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • Ozzy: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Ozzy. Ken recovered and try to push the Beedrill back, but they wouldn't move. Ozzy ran quietly around to collect the other Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: Thank you for arranging these, Ken. I must go now.
  • Ken: Don't you want this lot?
  • Ozzy: No thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Ken gulped.
  • Ken: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Ozzy: You never asked me. Besides.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Ken had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the Beedrill were laughing and singing at him.
  • Beedrill: Beedrill are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts Ken, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong Beedrill out, Pop Goes Ken!
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Growled Ken, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Ken's Devious Deed

  • Ringo Starr: Ken of the Pokemon Mystery Club was sulking. The Beedrill were not stop singing rudely at him.
  • Beedrill: Show the world what I can do, gaily boasts Ken. In and out he creeps about...
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy was horrified.
  • Ozzy: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Ozzy: I'm sorry our Beedrill were rude to you, Ken,
  • Ringo Starr: Ken was still furious.
  • Ken: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Virgil: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: Ozzy would never do that. We characters have our differences, but we never talked about them to the cars. That would be dis...dis...
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Al.
  • Virgil: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Virgil. Ken hated Ozzy. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Ozzy. Next day, he spoke to the Beedrill.
  • Ken: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Ozzy told me one about Terry. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Terry I told you.
  • Ringo Starr: And he sniggered away.
  • Beedrill: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Guffawed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Terry will be cross with Ozzy when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Ozzy for bumping us.
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed rudely at the engines as they went by. Soon Terry, Virgil and Al found out why.
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Al.
  • Virgil: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: We cannot allow it.
  • Ringo Starr: They consulted together.
  • Virgil: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Virgil: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy was tired out. The Beedrill had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: Hooosh!
  • Al: Keep out!
  • Ozzy: Stop fooling.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: I'm tired.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: So are we.
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed the characters.
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: We're tired of you. We like Ken. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: You do!
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: You do!
  • Ringo Starr: Wilhelmina came to stop the noise.
  • Terry: Ozzy called me a galloping sausage!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Terry.
  • Al: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Al.
  • Virgil: I'm old square wheels!
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Virgil.
  • Wilhelmina: Well, Ozzy?
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy considered.
  • Ozzy: I only wish ma'am.
  • Ringo Starr: He said gravely.
  • Ozzy: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Wilhelmina: (clearing throat)
  • Terry, Al and Virgil: He made Beedrill laugh at us.
  • Ringo Starr: Accused the characters. Wilhelmina recovered. She been trying not to laugh herself.
  • Wilhelmina: Did you, Ozzy?
  • Ozzy: Certainly not, ma'am. No character will be as mean as that.
  • Ringo Starr: Ken lurked up.
  • Wilhelmina: Now, Ken, you heard what Ozzy said.
  • Ken: I can't understand it, ma'am, to think that Ozzy of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, ma'am, but no nothing.
  • Wilhelmina: I see.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wilhelmina. Ken squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Wilhelmina: I'm sorry, Ozzy, but you must go to Scott's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Ozzy: As you wish, ma'am.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy trundled sadly away, while Ken smirked with triumph.

A Close Shave For Ozzy

  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy Jones puffed sadly to Scott's station.
  • Ozzy: It's not fair.
  • Ringo Starr: He complained.
  • Ozzy: Ken has been telling lies about me and made Wilhelmina and all the characters think I'm horrid.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott smiled.
  • Scott: I know you weren't, and so does Wilhelmina. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these Beedrill?
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy felt happier with Scott, and set to work at once. The Beedrill were silly, heavy and noisy. The two characters have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Ozzy: Goodbye!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Ozzy, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Ozzy love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Ozzy: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: Roared the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled.
  • Driver: Hurry, Ozzy, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver. They raced through Scott's station, but the Beedrill were catching up.
  • Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver was gaining control.
  • Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Al was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Driver: It's up to you now, Ozzy.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the driver. Ozzy put every ounce of wait and steam against the Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: It's too late!
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy groaned and shut his eyes. He veered into a siding where a barber had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: The silly Beedrill were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the Beedrill didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Ozzy: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Gasped Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Barber: No I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the barber.
  • Barber: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • Ringo Starr: And he lathered Ozzy's face all other. Poor Ozzy! Ash was helping to pull the Beedrill away when Wilhelmina arrived.
  • Barber: I do not like characters popping through my walls.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed the barber.
  • Wilhelmina: I appreciate your feelings.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wilhelmina.
  • Wilhelmina: But you must know that this character and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Barber: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the barber.
  • Barber: Oh! Excuse me.
  • Ringo Starr: He filled the basin of water to wash Ozzy's face.
  • Barber: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave character.
  • Ozzy: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Wilhelmina: You were very brave indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wilhelmina.
  • Wilhelmina: I'm proud of you.
  • Ringo Starr: Wilhelmina watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Ozzy.
  • Wilhelmina: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Ozzy: Home, ma'am? Do you mean the yard?
  • Wilhelmina: Of course.
  • Ozzy: But, ma'am, they don't like me. They like Ken.
  • Wilhelmina: Not now. I never believed Ken, so I sent him packing. The characters were sorry and want you back.
  • Ringo Starr: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Ozzy Jones.

Terry Takes A Dip

  • Ringo Starr: Terry was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Terry: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid character, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Virgil: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Virgil.
  • Terry: What cheek!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Terry.
  • Terry: That Virgil is too big for his feet. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Rikochet: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Rikochet innocently.
  • Terry: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any character. But to come off the rails like Virgil did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • Ringo Starr: Then it was Virgil's turn to take the express. Terry watch him getting ready.
  • Terry: Be careful, Virgil. You're not pulling the flying kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil went off in a huff, and Terry yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Terry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Terry: Is it coaches or Beedrill?
  • Driver: Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Terry: Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Puh.
  • Ringo Starr: Terry's fire was slow to start, so Scott had to push Virgil to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Terry: I won't go, I won't go!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Terry.
  • Scott: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Scott. At last, Terry was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Terry was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Terry: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Terry: Oosh!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed.
  • Terry: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great character. Don't you understand that?
  • Ringo Starr: They telephoned Wilhelmina.
  • Wilhelmina: So Terry didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Scott to take it please. And Terry? Leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • Ringo Starr: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Coo, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • Ringo Starr: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Terry fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Terry fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Terry layed in the ditch all day.
  • Terry: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Terry: I shall never get out.
  • Ringo Starr: But that evening, they lifted Terry and made a rope of sleepers under his feet to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and Al and Virgil pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Terry crawled home, a sadder and wiser character.

Down The Hole

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Ash was at the junction, when Terry shuffled in with some Beedrill.
  • Ash: Phew!
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked Ash.
  • Ash: What a funny smell. Can you smell a smell?
  • Suzy: I can't smell a smell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Suzy.
  • Ash: A funny musty sort of smell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Terry: No one noticed until you did.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Terry.
  • Terry: It must be yours.
  • Ringo Starr: Not long ago, he had fallen into a dirty ditch. Ash enjoyed teasing him about it.
  • Ash: Suzy, Pietra, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater.
  • Ringo Starr: Before Terry could answer, Ash puffed away. Suzy and Pietra could hardly believe their ears.
  • Suzy: He's dreadfully rude I feel quite ashamed.
  • Pietra: I feel quite ashamed he's dreadfully rude.
  • Ringo Starr: And to Ash they said.
  • Suzy and Pietra: You musn't be rude, you make us ashamed.
  • Ringo Starr: But Ash didn't care a bit.
  • Ash: That was funny, that was funny.
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself. Suzy and Pietra were deeply shocked. They have great respect for Terry McGinnis. Ash left the coaches at the station and went off to a mine for some Beedrill. Long ago, miners digging there have made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars but not the weight of characters. A large notice warns them not to enter the area: Danger! Characters must not pass this board.
  • Ash: Silly old board.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Ash. He had often tried to pass it but had never suceeded. But this morning he had made a plan. The fireman went to throw the switch.
  • Ash: Now for my plan!
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Ash. Bumping the Beedrill fiercely he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding.
  • Driver: Come back!
  • Ringo Starr: Yelled his driver.
  • (A loud splash is heard as Ash falls to the mine)
  • Ash: Fire and smoke!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'm sunk.
  • Ringo Starr: And he was.
  • Ash: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Ash: I am a silly trainer.
  • Wilhelmina: And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wilhelmina.
  • Ash: Please let me out. I wont do it again.
  • Wilhelmina: I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with the cranes. The ground's not firm enough. Hmm, let me see. I wonder if Terry could pull you out.
  • Ash: Yes ma'am.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash. But he didn't want to meet Terry just yet.
  • Terry: Down the mine is he? Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Terry.
  • Terry: What a joke! Poop poop! Little Ash, we'll have your out in a couple of puffs.
  • Ringo Starr: Strong cables were fastened between the two characters.
  • Wilhelmina: Are you ready? Heave!
  • Ringo Starr: It was a lot harden than they all thought. But at last Ash was free.
  • Ash: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Terry: That's all right, Ash. You made me laugh.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Terry.
  • Terry: I'm in disgrace.
  • Ash: So do I.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Ash.
  • Terry: Why so you are Ash. Shall we form an alliance. You help me and I help you.
  • Ash: Right you are.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Ash.
  • Terry: Good. That's settled.
  • Ringo Starr: Rumbled Terry. And buffer to buffer the allies puffed home.

The Runaway Pokemon Trainer

  • Ringo Starr: Ash Ketchum was sick. Workmen had try to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Wilhelmina: Scott must send you to the works.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wilhelmina. Ash felt very miserable. Then, Wilhelmina spoke to Ozzy.
  • Wilhelmina: I want you to help Rikochet and Ace while Ash is away.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy was delighted. He already knew Rikochet and soon made friends with Ace and Omi. Freakazoid gave him a big welcome too.
  • Freakazoid: Take care of Ash's coaches.
  • Ringo Starr: He advised.
  • Freakazoid: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy was very gentle with the coaches. Suzy and Pietra were impressed.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Such nice manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They told each other.
  • Suzy and Pietra: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • Ringo Starr: When Ash came back, Suzy and Pietra told him how well Ozzy had managed. Ash was so happy to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Ash's handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Ash found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Ash's fireman was sick and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Virgil's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Ash's handbrake. Ash simmered happily.
  • Ash: Not long now.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. As he saw Virgil slowly approaching. But Ash's brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Stop! Stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Shrieked Suzy and Pietra. But Ash, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • Ringo Starr: There ready for action was Superman. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Ash was tiring.
  • Ash: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • Ringo Starr: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Ash saw Superman land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • Ringo Starr: At last Ash stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Superman.
  • Superman: Think nothing of it.
  • Ringo: Starr: Whirled Superman.
  • Superman: Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Phew.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Weirdly, Ash agreed with him.
