  • Ringo Starr: Stepney's visit to Sir Topham Hatt's railway was coming to an end.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We shall miss you.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Then he turned his attention to all the other engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My railway was very busy but I'm pleased with you, but you need help. A diesel was all was available. Please do your best to avoid any er.... disturbances.
  • Duck: What does that mean?
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Duck.
  • James: That means this diesel is difficult.
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped James. And he was. The diesel surveyed the shed.
  • Diesel: Not bad. I've seen worse. At least you're all clean.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines glared.
  • Diesel: It's not your fault, but Sir Topham Hatt should scrap you and get engines like me. A fill of oil, a touch of a start and I'm off. No bother, no waiting. They had to fuss round you for hours before you're ready.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines were furious! Next morning, they held an indignation meeting around the turntable.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful!
  • Ringo Starr: Rumbled Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting!
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • Henry: Despicable!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Henry.
  • Donald: To say such things to us.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Donald and Douglas.
  • Douglas: It's too teach him a lesson we be wanting. But how do we do it?
  • Ringo Starr: Their chance came sooner and they expected. The diesel was purring comfortable. An inspector watch the fitter making final adjustments. The wind tugged the inspector's hat. The diesel was ready.
  • Diesel: Look at me, Duck and Stepney. Now I'll show you something.
  • Ringo Starr: He rolled proudly toward his coaches. Then, it happened. The hat inside jammed his airtake. Shaking and spluttering, the diesel stopped. Meanwhile the inspector was looking for his hat. The diesel seethed through furious. Duck and Stepney pushed him back to the shed.
  • Inspector: My hat!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained the inspector.
  • Inspector: You sucked it through your air intake!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother your hat. The heavy trains' due out. You have to take it, Duck. Stepney, will you help please?
  • Stepney: Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Stepney.
  • Stepney: I like a good long run on my last day.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines were soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon will take over from halfway so get the train in there. Good luck.
  • Stepney: Don't worry.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Stepney.
  • Stepney: We'll get there and be early too.
  • Ringo Starr: The cavalcade moved carefully over the rails and out to the open line.
  • Stepney: Now for a sprint.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Stepney.
  • Duck: I'm ready when you are.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Duck. Soon they were whizzing through Edward's station. At next, they charged at Gordon's Hill beyond. They felt the drag of the heavy coaches here. It was hard work. At last they were running smoothly along the line toward the big station.
  • Gordon: Hello, you're early!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's one of the headlamp for old diesel.
  • Stepney: James says he's sick as boiler sludge and sulking in the shed.
  • Gordon: Serves him right were saying were out of date!
  • Ringo Starr: And Gordon chortled away. Next day, everyone came to say goodbye to Stepney.
  • Engines: Come back and see you soon!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled the engines.
  • Stepney: And you're always welcome at my bluebell railway too.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Stepney. Then he puffed away. What about diesel? He'd slipped out when no one was looking. He said goodbye, but he left two things behind: a rather nasty smell and a battered bowler hat.
