  • (Upon this, we begin with Thomas being ready for the morning)
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 8-10 intro. After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surronded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)

  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: Then, we'll meet a brand-new engine called Mighty Mac.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: But first, Thomas has a special to collect.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas' Milkshake Muddle)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' Milkshake Muddle. Once a year, the children on Sodor are all invited to a special summer party. There was to be ice cream and cake for everyone. Every engine wanted to be the one to take the children to the party. On the day of the party, Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth Sheds. Thomas hoped that he would be taking the children, but Sir Topham Hatt chose Emily. He had other jobs for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, first you ought to go to the dairy to collect milk to make the ice cream. Then, you must go to the farm on the other side of the island to collect butter for cakes. All in time for the children's party.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas set off proudly. When Thomas arrived at the dairy, the manager told him he was to take the milk churns to the ice cream factory.
  • Manager: You have to go very slowly.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Thomas. So Thomas steamed carefully away. When Thomas stopped at a signal, he met Emily.
  • Emily: Hello, slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Thomas: I'm not being a slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm being reliable.
  • Emily: If you weren't a slowcoach...
  • Michael Brandon: Emily sniffed.
  • Emily: Sir Topham Hatt would have given you my job. I'm fast and I'm reliable. That's why I'm taking the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily looked very pleased with herself. This made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: I can be as fast as you.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed.
  • Emily: I'll race you to the next signal.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily whistled. And she steamed quickly away. Thomas wheeshed after as fast as his pistons would pump. As he raced along, the milk churns rattled and rocked. They biffed and bashed. And at the next signal, Thomas raced ahead of Emily. Thomas was very pleased. He steamed off for the ice cream factory. But he had completely forgotten about going slowly. The ice cream factory manager was very happy. Thomas had delivered the milk in record time. Now the factory could make the ice cream for the party. But when the manager looked into one of the churns, he was very surprised.
  • Manager: This milk is almost butter.
  • Michael Brandon: Explained the manager. The factory manager asked Thomas if the churns had rattled around. Thomas looked worried.
  • Manager: If you shake milk for long enough, it turns to butter.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Thomas. Thomas was very upset. The factory manager was cross.
  • Manager: You must go back to the dairy and get more milk. And remember to go slowly this time.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly. Thomas steamed back to the dairy as fast as he could. When Thomas arrived back at the dairy, Sir Topham Hatt was there. He was very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, it is nearly time for the party and you still have not collected the butter from the other side of the island. The children will have no cakes for the party.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt terrible. Thomas trembled slowly and carefully back to the ice cream factory. He didn't feel reliable. He had let everyone down. When he finally arrived with the milk, the manager told Thomas to take the old churns back to the dairy. But suddenly, Thomas had a better idea. Thomas steamed along with the milk churns even faster than he had before. He puffed up Gordon's Hill. And chuffed down to the valley. He raced like a rocket. And he wheeshed like the wind. The churns in Thomas' freight cars rattled and rolled. They clanked and crashed and biffed and bashed. Even the cows and sheep looked up to see what the noise was. But Thomas' couldn't stop until he got to the bakery. As he arrived, he blew his whistle long and hard.
  • Baker: I need butter, not milk.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the baker. He was surprised to see the milk churns.
  • Thomas: Look inside the churns.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. The baker couldn't believe his eyes. The almost butter was now butter.
  • Thomas: Enough to make all the cakes for the party.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt heard what Thomas had done. He came to see him. Thomas thought Sir Topham Hatt would be cross. He was very worried. But Sir Topham Hatt smiled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you have saved the children's party.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So today, that makes you the most reliable engine on the whole of Sodor.
  • Michael Brandon: And later, Thomas had his most important job yet. As guest of honor at the children's party. There was lots of ice cream and plenty of cakes. Everyone had a wonderful time. The children cheered for Thomas. Thomas felt very proud.

  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas is waiting to cross a new bridge, but the bridge isn't finished. The workmen need to put the last pieces to make it safe. Can you help them put it the missing pieces? Look at these different shapes. This piece is a circle shape. It's round like a wheel. This piece is a square shape. It has four straight sides all the same size. And this piece is a triangle. It has three sides and three corners. Now let's look at the bridge. Which piece do you think should go in this space? What about the circle shape? No. The circle is round like a wheel. It has no corners. What about the triangle? Yes. The triangle is the right shape for the space. It has three sides and three corners. Now the workmen need to find another missing piece. Which piece do you think should go in this space? What about the square shape? No. The square is the wrong shape. It has four straight sides. What about the circle shape? Yes. The circle is round like a wheel. And it is the right space piece to fit in that space. Now there is one last piece the workmen have to fit into the bridge. And there's only one left. The square shape. Do you think the square shape will fit in this space? Yes. The square with four straight sides all the same size is the right shape. All the missing pieces have been found. The bridge is finished now, Thomas. You can go safely on your way. Well done, Thomas.

  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Mighty Mac)
  • Michael Brandon: Mighty Mac. It was summertime on the Island of Sodor. Lots of vacationers were coming to the island. They like to see the beautiful forest and the high mountains. It was a busy time for all the engines. A new engine had arrived on the island. He was going to help take the vacationers up into the mountains. Thomas arrived at the Transfer Yards. He was very excited to meet a new engine.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Mighty: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: The new engine puffed back.
  • Mighty: I'm Mighty.
  • Mac: And I'm Mac.
  • Mighty: And together...
  • Mac: ...we're Mighty Mac.
  • Michael Brandon: They whistled happily. Thomas had never seen such an unusual engine before. Then, the Narrow Gauge Controller, Mr. Percival arrived.
  • Mr. Percival: Mighty Mac, you are to take some vacationers to the mountain campground.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mr. Percival. Mighty Mac could see the vacationers. They were waiting on the platform. But they were lots of tracks between Mighty Mac and the vacationers. Mighty Mac did know how to get to the platform.
  • Mighty: We've always worked in the shunting yard.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Mighty to Thomas.
  • Mac: How are we find a way over to the passengers?
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Mac.
  • Thomas: It's simple.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Look at where you want to go, then follow the track that will take you there.
  • Michael Brandon: Mighty set off noticeably. But as they puff along the track, Mac thought his way was quicker.
  • Mac: This way!
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Mighty: No, Mac.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mighty.
  • Mighty: It's this way.
  • Michael Brandon: So they were puffing left and right, backwards and forwards. They were very confused. They even had a ride on a turntable. Then, at last...
  • Mac: We're here!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mac.
  • Mighty: Then why are the vacationers over there?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Mighty.
  • Mr. Percival: Because you didn't look where you wanted to go. You didn't follow the right track.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mr. Percival sternly.
  • Mr. Percival: Now you're late.
  • Mac: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mac.
  • Mighty: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mighty. They felt very silly. Finally, the passengers were on board. Mighty Mac puffed through the countryside on the way to the campground.
  • Mighty: We have to get there before dark.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Mighty.
  • Mighty: So we'll have to work extra hard.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, in the mountains, there was a fork on the track. Mighty wanted to go left.
  • Mighty: This way.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Mac: No, go the other way!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Mac. But Mighty was already pulling them pass the fork. Mac was cross. The next time they came to a fork in the track, Mac wanted to go the other way again.
  • Mac: This way!
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. And he pulled Mighty back to the junction. And then pushed him back up the other line. Now, Mighty was cross. They puffed through the mountains. And whenever they came across the junction, Mighty would push one way, then Mac will pull the other. The vacationers were having a very bumpy ride. They spilled their drinks and their donuts were flying. But Mighty Mac pressed on. Then, there was trouble. They arrived on a dead end. The vacationers took a look around.
  • Vacationers: This isn't a campground.
  • Michael Brandon: Said one of them.
  • Man: It's not even a nice place for a picnic.
  • Michael Brandon: Said another.
  • Mighty: This is your fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mighty and he pushed back towards Mac.
  • Mac: Yours.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mac and he pushed back even harder. The vacationers watched as Mighty Mac bumped backwards and forwards.
  • Vacationers: Stop!
  • Michael Brandon: Called the vacationers.
  • Vacationers: You're going to cause an accident!
  • Michael Brandon: But it was too late. Mighty pushed Mac as hard as he could and the coach crashed into the rocks. First, one rock fell, then another rock. Soon lots of rocks came tumbling down. The track was blocked and they were all stuck.
  • Vacationers: We'll never get to the campground now.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned the vacationers. And it was all Mighty Mac's fault. They felt terrible. It was getting late. The vacationers were working hard. They were trying to get the coach back on the rails. Then with a mighty heave, the vacationers lifted the coach back on to the track. Mighty Mac was watching them.
  • Mighty: When the vacationers work together...
  • Michael Brandon: Hooted Mighty.
  • Mac: ...they lifted the heavy carriage onto the track.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Mac. Then, they had an idea.
  • Mighty: If we both work together...
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mighty.
  • Mac: ...we'll be strong enough to push those rocks out of the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Mac. So Mighty Mac rolled up to the rocks and pushed and pushed, the rocks rumbled and then they rocked until finally the track was cleared. The vacationers cheered. Mighty Mac was ready to go. They could see the flag flying high above the campground. Then, they remembered what Thomas had said.
  • Mac: Look where you want to go...
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mac.
  • Mighty: ...then follow the track that will take you there.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Mighty.
  • Mighty Mac: Off we go!
  • Michael Brandon: They whistled together. Mighty Mac puffed up the mountain. And soon, they arrived at the campground. The vacationers were very happy. And Mighty Mac was very proud.
  • Mighty: You know, Mac.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Mighty.
  • Mighty: When we pull together and work together...
  • Mac: ...we can be a very useful engine!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Mac. And they set off happily back down the mountain.

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.
