Characters and Turntables

  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy and Terry were lonely when Ash left the yard to run his route. They missed him very much. They had more work to do and had to fetch some more coaches. The big characters thought they were too important to fetch coaches. Al grumbled too.
  • Shaggy: We get no rest, we get no rest!
  • Ringo Starr: They all complained. But the coaches only laughed.
  • Coaches: You're lazy and slack, you're lazy and slack!
  • Ringo Starr: They answered. All together, the characters were causing Bugs Bunny a great deal of trouble. The big stations both ends on the line each have a turntable. Bugs Bunny had made them so that the tender characters can be turned round because it is dangerous for them to go fast and backwards. Characters like Ash don't need turntables. They can go just as well backwards as forwards. But to hear Terry talk, he would've thought that Bugs Bunny had given him a tender just to show how important he was.
  • Terry: You don't understand, little Ash. We Big Characters have a position to keep up. It doesn't matter where you go, but we are important, and for Bugs Bunny to make us shunt Beedrill, fetch coaches and go on some of those dirty sidings it's, it's, well, it's not the proper thing.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash chuckled and went off with Bailey and Marina.
  • Terry: Disgraceful!
  • Ringo Starr: Terry hissed as he ran backwards to the turntable. The turntable was in the windy place close to the sea, and he was not on it just right, he put amount of balance and made a difficult to turn. Today, Terry was in the bad temper, and the wind was blowing fiercly. His driver tried to make him stop in the right place but Terry wasn't trying. The fireman tried to turn the handle, but Terry's weight and the strong wind prevented him.
  • Driver: It's no good.
  • Ringo Starr: They said at last.
  • Driver: Your tender upsets the balance. If you're a little character, you be all right. Now you have to pull the next train backwards.
  • Boys: Look!
  • Ringo Starr: Called some boys.
  • Boys: There's a new character! Oh, it's only Terry, back to front.
  • Ash: Hello!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Ash.
  • Ash: Playing little characters? Sensible character. Take my advice, scrap your tender and have a nice bunker.
  • Ringo Starr: Terry said nothing. Even Al laughed when he saw him.
  • Terry: Take care.
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Terry.
  • Terry: You might stick too.
  • Al: No fear.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Al.
  • Al: I'm not so fat as you. I mustn't stick.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Al. He stopped on just the right place to balance the table. It could now swing easily. Terry arrived and time to see everything. Al turned much too easily. The wind puffed him round like a top. He couldn't stop!
  • (Al spins faster and faster until he slows down, and as the turntable stops, he is all green and dizzy)
  • Terry: Well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Are you playing roundabouts?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Al feeling quite giddy rolled off to the shed without a word. That night, the three characters had an indignation meeting.
  • Terry: It's shameful to treat tender characters like this. Terry has to go backwards and people think he's a tank character, Al spins like a top and everyone laughs at us. And added to that, Bugs Bunny makes us all shunt in dirty sidings. Blech! Listen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry. He whispered something to the others.
  • Terry: We'll do it tomorrow. Bugs Bunny will look silly.
  • Ringo Starr: The characters had decided to go on strike.

Trouble In The Library

  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster came in.
  • Stationmaster: There's trouble in the library, sir. Shaggy was sulking. There's no train and the passengers are saying this is a bad railway.
  • Bugs: Indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: We cannot allow that.
  • Ringo Starr: He found Terry, Al and Shaggy looking very cross.
  • Steven: Come along, Shaggy. It's time your train was ready.
  • Terry: Shaggy's not going!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Terry: We won't shunt like little characters. That was Ash's job. We are important tender characters. You fetch our coaches and we will pull them. Tender characters don't shunt.
  • Bugs: We'll see about that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: No character on my railway is too imporant for small jobs.
  • Ringo Starr: And he hurried away to find Scott.
  • Bugs: The yard has never been the same since Ash left to run his branch line.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly. Scott was shunting.
  • Bugs: Leave those Beedrill please, Scott.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs.
  • Bugs: I want to push coaches for me in the yard.
  • Scott: Thank you, sir. That will be a nice change.
  • Bugs: That's a good boy. Off you go then.
  • Ringo Starr: So Bugs found coaches for the three characters and that day, the train's ran as usual. But next morning, Scott looked unhappy. Terry came clanking pass hissing rudely.
  • Bugs: Bless me!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs.
  • Bugs: What a noise!
  • Scott: They all hissed me, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Scott.
  • Scott: They say tender characters don't shunt and last night they said I have gray feet. I haven't have I, sir?
  • Bugs: No Scott, you have nice blue ones, and I'm proud of you. Tender characters do shunt, but all the same we do need another character here.
  • Ringo Starr: He went to the workshop and they showed them all sorts of characters. At last, he saw a little Xiaolin Monk.
  • Bugs: That's the one.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Bugs: If I choose you, will you work hard?
  • Omi: Oh sir, yes sir.
  • Bugs: That's a good boy. I'll call you Omi.
  • Omi: Yes sir, thank you sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Omi. And Bugs Bunny brought him back to the yard.
  • Bugs: Scott.
  • Ringo Starr: He called.
  • Bugs: Here's Omi. Will you show him everything?
  • Ringo Starr: Omi soon learned what he had to do and they had a happy afternoon. Then Shaggy came by hissing as usual.
  • Omi: Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Went Omi. Shaggy jumped and ran back to the shed.
  • Scott: How beautifully you wheeshed him!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Scott.
  • Scott: I can't wheesh like that.
  • Omi: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Omi.
  • Omi: That's nothing. You should hear them in the workshop. You have to wheesh loudly to make yourself heard.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, Ash arrived.
  • Ash: Bugs Bunny sent to me. I expect he wants help.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Scott.
  • Scott: Sh, sh, here he comes.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Scott.
  • Bugs: Well done, Ash, you've been quick. Listen, Shaggy, Terry and Al are sulking they say they won't shunt like little characters, so I have shut them up and I want you both to run a line for a while.
  • Ash: Little characters indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Ash.
  • Ash: We'll show them.
  • Bugs: And Omi will help too.
  • Omi: Oh sir, yes sir, please sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Omi. Scott and Ash worked the main line greeting each other as they pass by. Omi puffed along the branch line. Ash was anxious about Bailey and Marina, but both driver and conductor promise to take care of them. They were fewer trains but the passengers didn't mind. They knew the three other characters were having a lesson. Terry, Al and Shaggy were cold, lonely and miserable. They wish now they haven't been so silly.

Omi Runs Away

  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy, Al and Terry were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty and longed to be let out again. At last, Bugs Bunny arrived.
  • Bugs: I hope you are sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: And that you understand that every job on the railway is important. We have a new character named Omi who helps pull coaches and Ash and Scott had worked the main line nicely, but I will let you now if you promise to work hard.
  • Terry: Yes sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the three characters.
  • Al: We will.
  • Bugs: That's right, but please remember that this no shunting nonsense must stop.
  • Ringo Starr: He then told Omi, Scott and Ash that they can go and play on a branch line for a few days, and they ran off happily to find Bailey and Marina at the junction. The two ladies were very pleased to see Ash again. Scott and Omi played with the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Stop, stop, stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Screamed the Beedrill as they pushed them to their proper sidings. But the two boys laughed and went on shunting till the Beedrill were tightling arranged. Next, Scott took some empty Beedrill from the quarry. Alex was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He like watching trains and being cheeky to the other characters.
  • Omi: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He would call, and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Omi was waiting for the signalman to set the switch so that he can go back to the yard. He was eager to work, but was being rather careless and not paying attention. Scott had warned Omi.
  • Scott: Be careful on the main line. Whistle to the signalman that you are there.
  • Ringo Starr: But Omi didn't remember to whistle, and so the busy signalman forgot him. Omi waited and waited. The switch were still against him so he couldn't move. Then, he looked along the main line.
  • Omi: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Terry with the express.
  • Terry: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Terry.
  • Terry: Get out of my way!
  • (Terry approaches Omi, who then shuts his eyes and the big character comes to a frightening halt)
  • Ringo Starr: Omi opened his eyes. Terry had stopped with Omi's buffers a few inches from his own. But Omi had began to move.
  • Omi: I won't stay here, I'll run away!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed. He ran straight through Scott's station, and was so frighetend that he ran right up Terry's hill without stopping. After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to shut off steam and applied his brakes.
  • Omi: I want to stop! I want to stop!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Omi was in trouble, so he kindly set the switch. Omi puffed wearly onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
  • Omi: I want to stop, I want to stop! I have stopped!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed thankfully.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Omi.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the workmen as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have some drink and some coal and then you feel better.
  • Ringo Starr: Presently, Terry arrived.
  • Terry: Well done, Omi. You started so quickly that you stopped the nasty accident.
  • Omi: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Omi.
  • Omi: You were clever to stop.
  • Ringo Starr: Then Terry helped pull Omi out from the bank. The two characters are now good friends, but Omi was always most careful that he goes out on the main line.
