  • Alec Baldwin: Toad the break van was feeling sad. Everywhere he looked, he could see engines and coaches moving steadily forwards. They all looked confident and cheerful. One day, he decided to talk to Oliver the Great Western Engine.
  • Toad: I'm always going backwards, Mr. Oliver. I have forward thinking views. I could be a leader if you know what I mean.
  • Gordon: You can't be a leader without a train to follow you. You don't have a train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon said. Toad felt sadder still. Oliver wanted to help,
  • Oliver: You're a really useful break van, Toad. You help me break and you keep my freight cars in order when we go down hills.
  • Toad: I know, Mr. Oliver, but it would be so exciting to go forwards for a change instead of always things sliding away from me.
  • Alec Baldwin: The freight cars were cross with Toad.
  • Car 1: Who's he to start complaining?
  • Car 2: He's lucky to be able to look after us.
  • Car 3: Let's teach him a lesson.
  • Alec Baldwin: The freight cars decided to carry up their plan when they reached Gordon's Hill. When they were nearly at the top, they played their tricks.
  • Cars: Ready, steady, go!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the freight cars. And they jerked and a coupling which broke.
  • Cars: We're making your wish come true, Toad! Follow the leader!
  • Alec Baldwin: Yelled the freight cars. Toad was still in a state of shock so he didn't know what to think. And he couldn't ask the conductor, he had jumped clear.
  • Cars: Faster, faster, as fast as you want!
  • Alec Baldwin: Screamed the freight cars. Suddenly, Toad found it all rather fun but the fun was soon over. A crossing lay ahead and the gates were closed, Toad couldn't stop. Worse still, Toad now realized he was on the wrong track. There ahead was Gordon! The signalman changed the points just in time.
  • Cars: On, on, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the freight cars. Suddenly, he saw James pulling a long slow train.
  • James: Oh, my goodness!
  • Toad: Help, save me!
  • Alec Baldwin: A quick thinking shunter did just in time.
  • James: What was that?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained James. The signalman warned the stationmaster at the next station.
  • Signalman: There's a runaway coming!
  • Stationmaster: We'll send them into the sidings.
  • Toad: Help, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Toad again. Toad saw some buffers.
  • Toad: Those'll stop me.
  • Alec Baldwin: But the points in the buffers weren't set.
  • Toad: No, no! I'm back on the main line!
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Oliver was racing to the rescue.
  • Oliver: I must catch Toad. I must.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toad sped past Henry. More danger lay ahead. Men were working on the bridge, but they had been warned about the runaway Toad and his freight cars. They diverted him onto old sidings, straight into a muddy pool.
  • (Toad falls into a muddy pool)
  • Toad: Wab Wab, Stopped at last.
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver arrived and when he saw Toad, he could only smile.
  • Oliver: A pond is the only place for a Toad I suppose.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night, Toad spoke to Oliver.
  • Toad: I'm sorry, Mr. Oliver, if I caused you any embarrassment.
  • Oliver: That's all right, Toad. So what d'you think of going forwards?
  • Toad: It was fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Toad.
  • Toad: But from now on, I'll be happy to look forward to the future, busy going backwards, so to speak.
