  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Bold and Brave)
  • Michael Brandon: Bold and Brave. It was also summer on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were very busy. They were looking forward to the start of the holiday season. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's time to get the seaside station ready for the summer visitors. Thomas, you ought to pick up the deck chairs and windbreaks and take them to the beach.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. And he hurried off happily.
  • Diesel: You're looking very cheerful, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel. Thomas told Diesel all about his exciting job.
  • Diesel: Haven't you heard about the curse of the cliffs?
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel.
  • Thomas: No.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas nervously. Diesel snorted.
  • Diesel: Whenever the first engine of the holiday season goes around the headland. A terrible fog comes down over the cliffs.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas did like the sound of that at all.
  • Diesel: The engines loses its way and nobody knows where it goes.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel chugged away leaving Thomas unhappy indeed. He wished that he didn't have to go to the beach after all. Thomas dread his wheels slowly along the track. He was very worried. Finally, Thomas reached the supply shed. Workers had loaded his freight cars with windbreaks and deck chairs. Thomas puffed slowly on his way. He was thinking about the curse of the cliffs. Suddenly, he saw Harold the Helicopter. Harold had bad news.
  • Harold: Thick fog rolling in on the headland!
  • Michael Brandon: Harold shouted.
  • Harold: Puff carefully, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: And Harold whirred away over the treetops. Thomas was very scared now.
  • Thomas: What if Diesel said about the curse of the cliffs is true?
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I could get lost in the fog and never be seen again.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed fearfully towards the cliffs. Thomas was approaching the tunnel when he saw Ben. Ben looked unhappy.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Thomas kindly.
  • Ben: I was enjoying myself until I met Diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Ben unhappily.
  • Ben: He told me a monster lives in the tunnel. Now I'm too scared to go through.
  • Thomas: I'm sure Diesel can't be right about the monster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas said.
  • Thomas: Why don't I go in to the tunnel first? Then you can follow me.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed slowly into the tunnel. He heard a strange noise.
  • Thomas: Must be brave, must be brave.
  • Michael Brandon: He told himself. Thomas was determined not to show Ben he was frightened. He screwed up his courage and puffed slowly on. Then the noise grew louder and louder. Suddenly, Thomas saw two eyes peering on him. Now he knew that Diesel was right.
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Thomas.
  • Thomas: There is a monster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas wanted to go back, but he couldn't. He had to help Ben.
  • Thomas: Must be brave, must be brave.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed. Thomas had to go forward. But when the smoke started to clear, Thomas saw that the eyes weren't eyes at all. They were lights. And the thud-thud bend wasn't the noise made by a monster. It came from the machine beside the track. It was a generator to power the lights. Then Thomas saw picks of shovels. He realized the workmen must be working there.
  • Thomas: Diesel was wrong. There's no monster in the tunnel after all.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon Thomas came across the workers making tea. Thomas tooted the workmen happily. Ben was also very relieved.
  • Ben: You are a very brave engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Ben.
  • Ben: Now I can finish my job.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed away. Thomas was happy to help Ben. Then he remembered that he still had to get to the beach. And he remembered Diesel's warning about the curse of the cliffs. Thomas felt very nervous as he puffed towards the headline. So nervous that he stopped.
  • Thomas: I can't go any further.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted. He began to reverse away from the cliffs. Then, he had an idea.
  • Thomas: If Diesel was wrong about the monster in the tunnel, maybe he'll be wrong about the curse of the cliffs.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. He started to go forward again.
  • Thomas: I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed as he steamed carefully towards the mist. Suddenly, the mist rolled away and the sun came out. Thomas saw that the cliffs were beautiful.
  • Thomas: Diesel just wanted to frighten me.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas whistled. Soon the seaside station was up ahead. At last, Thomas reached the station on the other side of the headland. Thomas knew that soon the beach would be filled with happy vacations
  • Thomas: I should not have believe what Diesel said about the curse of the cliffs.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Thomas. In future, Thomas decided he would believe in himself.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Brave)
  • Children: (singing)  There are times to be brave and times to be strong, when you are lost and you're all alone.
  • Girl: (singing) You might be somewhere strange and dark,
  • Children: (singing) but long to be safe at home. Thomas knows what must be done, he knows and what is more. He's the leader, number one. Such a brave little engine for sure. Well you might be lost on a foggy night, stuck fast on a snowy day.
  • Girl: (singing) It's times like this you feel afraid,
  • Children: (singing) so that's when it is the time to say. Thomas knows what must be done, he knows and what is more. He's the leader, number one. Such a brave little engine for sure. Thomas knows what must be done, he knows and what is more. He's the leader, number one. Such a brave little engine,
  • Girl: (singing) brave little engine,
  • Children: (singing) brave little engine for sure.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Here are lots of dots. Join the dots together and you'll see one of Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Can you guess which one it is? Here we go. There's a tall funnel and the dome. Around the cab and the engine's coal tender. There are lots of wheels, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven pairs. This engine is almost the same shape as Edward, but it's a different color. Red. It must be James. Hello, James!
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Fergus Breaks The Rules)
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus Breaks The Rules. Thomas and Fergus the Traction Engine are friends. Fergus is the pride of the cement works. Fergus knows all the rules and obeys them. One day, Sir Topham Hatt brought Devious Diesel to the cement works.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need Diesel to help for a while. Fergus please show him around.
  • Fergus: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus unhappily. He knew that Diesel could be trouble. Later, Diesel was being careless.
  • Fergus: Not like that!
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Fergus.
  • Fergus: Do it right.
  • Diesel: Don't interfere.
  • Michael Brandon: Sneered Diesel.
  • (Quarry dust falls on Diesel)
  • Fergus: You don't know the rules!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Fergus. Diesel was very annoyed with Fergus and started plotting a devious plan. Later that day, he pretended to have news for Fergus.
  • Diesel: Sir Topham Hatt wants you to work at the smelters.
  • Fergus: Me? But I'm the pride of the cement works.
  • Diesel: Not anymore. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm better than you. So I'm going to stay here.
  • Fergus: It's not fair. I love working here.
  • Michael Brandon: But he knew that really useful engines have to do as they are told.
  • Diesel: (laughs maniacally)
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver arrived at the smelters.
  • Fergus: I wanna go back to the cement works.
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed Fergus.
  • Fergus: None of the other engines like coming here it's so scary.
  • Fergus' Driver: You're right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Just then, the scrap diesels arrived.
  • Arry: Hello.
  • Bert: Are you happy to be here?
  • Fergus: No!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Fergus. His driver was scared too.
  • Fergus' Driver: Come on, Fergus, we're going to escape.
  • Michael Brandon: And for the first time, Fergus broke the rules. Sir Topham Hatt was enjoying a tasty fish supper when he heard that Fergus was missing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's not like Fergus. There must be something wrong. I will send Thomas to look for him.
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver turn onto an unused track to find a place to hide. Fergus was frightened, so was Thomas. He puffed up and down the line. He couldn't see Fergus anywhere.
  • Thomas' Driver: We could search the old mine track.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: That line is dark and spooky.
  • Michael Brandon: Whispered Thomas. But he had to be brave and find Fergus. Fergus was on a siding. His fire had gone out. Then, he heard a sound.
  • Fergus: It's an engine!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: Fergus.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Whatever are you doing out here?
  • Fergus: Hiding. Don't wanna work at the smelters. Sir Topham Hatt is going to be cross with me.
  • Thomas: He's not.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's worried about you.
  • Fergus: Really?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Fergus felt better. Thomas pulled Fergus all the way to the smelters yard where he knew Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Fergus, explain yourself.
  • Fergus: I ran away. It's scary here.
  • Thomas: Diesel told Fergus that he wanted him at the smelters forever.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense, Fergus, you are the pride of the cement works. I shall send Diesel to the smelters and you can go back to the cement works tomorrow.
  • Fergus: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus happily. Fergus knew he had a good friend in Thomas and he was still the pride of the cement works.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Work on the Sodor Railway is fun. Sometimes it's difficult, but the engines always know what to do. In winter when it's cold, the tracks can become icy. That makes them very slippery. The engines have to be careful when they come to a junction. Thomas knows what to do. He changed his tracks slowly. When Gordon has a lot of heavy coaches, he has to be careful coming down Gordon's Hill. And when he sees Bertie the bus at the crossing, Gordon has to stop. Gordon knows what to do. He applies his brakes gently so that his passengers aren't bumped about. When Percy pulls the mail train, it can sometimes get very foggy. But Percy knows what to do. He asked his driver to light his lamp, so that he can see the track ahead and deliver the mail on time. Working on the Sodor isn't always easy. But it's no problem for Thomas, Gordon and Percy, because they all know what to do.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Skarloey The Brave)
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey The Brave. Skarloey loves to puff through the hills on the Island of Sodor. His favorite place is a pretty village high up in the mountains. But in the winter, the mountain village gets very cold, so it's important that the engines deliver coal to the village. The houses must be cozy and warm. One morning, Rheneas was delivering his empty freight cars to the incline. The winch brings empty cars up the incline and lowers full cars down to be delivered to the villagers across the island. Rheneas was frightened up the incline. It was very high. So Rheneas shunted his cars into place and then he backed away quickly.
  • Skarloey: You are such a scaredy engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Skarloey.
  • Rheneas: I'm not scared of anything.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey thought he was the bravest engine in the world. But then, the winches coupling broke.
  • Skarloey: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey steamed away as fast as he could. Skarloey raced right pass Thomas who was waiting on the main line. Skarloey switched tracks and the cars rolled past him. But they were heading straight for Rusty. Rusty tooted loudly to the signalman. He changed the points. Soon the Narrow Gauge controller, Mr. Percival, arrived.
  • Mr. Percival: Well done, Rusty.
  • Michael Brandon: Mr. Percival said.
  • Mr. Percival: You are a really brave engine.
  • Rusty: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rusty proudly. But Skarloey wasn't happy.
  • Skarloey: I want to be the bravest.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: I want to show everyone that I'm the bravest engine of all.
  • Michael Brandon: The next day, Skarloey was shunting freight cars on to the incline.
  • Skarloey: How can I prove I'm the bravest?
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed to himself. Suddenly, Skarloey had an idea.
  • Skarloey: If I went up the hill of the winch...
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Skarloey: ...then everyone will see how brave I am.
  • Michael Brandon: The winch hooked on to Skarloey's freight cars coupling. Skarloey was still coupled up. But he didn't help the workmen. Slowly, Skarloey was pulled up the hill. When Rheneas and Duncan arrived at the bottom of the incline, they gasped.
  • Rheneas: Look where's Skarloey is!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rheneas.
  • Duncan: That is the bravest thing to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Duncan. Duncan cheered and Rheneas blew his whistle. Skarloey felt prouder than ever.
  • Skarloey: Look at me! Look at me!
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. At last, Skarloey reached the top of the incline.
  • Skarloey: I'm the bravest engine in all the world!
  • Michael Brandon: He called. But Skarloey was too heavy and the winch broke.
  • Skarloey: Whee!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Skarloey as he raced down the hill. But when he got to the bottom, he couldn't stop. Skarloey raced all the way to the Transfer Yards. He raced past a very surprised Thomas and straight into the snow bank. Mr. Percival was very cross.
  • Mr. Percival: Skarloey, you have broken the winch.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Mr. Percival: The mountain village will get no coal today and it's very cold.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey felt very bad.
  • Skarloey: The village won't be cozy and warm.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Skarloey sadly.
  • Skarloey: And it's all my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly, Skarloey had an idea.
  • Skarloey: There's only one thing to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Skarloey: I will have to collect the coal myself.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey arrived at the top of the incline and found Rheneas and Duncan had brought the supplies to repair the winch.
  • Duncan: Are you going to take the freight cars down the incline without the winch?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Duncan excitedly.
  • Rheneas: That would be really brave.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Rheneas. Skarloey wanted to show Rheneas and Duncan how brave he was, but then he thought of the mountain village.
  • Skarloey: No.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Skarloey firmly.
  • Skarloey: I'm going to take the coal to the village.
  • Michael Brandon: So he puffed slowly and carefully back down the steep track. No one was there to see him working hard. No one cheered or blew their whistles. But it didn't matter what matter was getting the coal to the village. It was late when Skarloey arrived at the village station. The villagers were very pleased to see Skarloey. And they were pleased to have coal to make their homes cozy and warm. They cheered and cheered and cheered. Skarloey was so proud it made his axles tingle.
  • Skarloey: This is much better than showing everyone how great I am.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. And he certainly was.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Engine Roll Call)
  • Children: (singing) 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. 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. 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.
