Ash and The Runaway Car

  • Michael Brandon: Ash and The Runaway Car. It was a beautiful day on the land of YTV. Ash was feeling especially happy. He was on his way to Brendam Docks to collect a special special. It was the day of the YTV show. Steven's brand-new car was being unloaded. It was in Wilhelmina's favorite color-- Hat Blue. Steven had chosen Ash to take the car from the docks to the YTV show. Ash was so proud, he thought his body would burst. Funky Kong was slowly lowering the car onto a flatbed.
  • Ash: All the characters wanted this job.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash puffed proudly.
  • Terry: Steven chose me to take the brand-new bandstand.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Steven.
  • Steven: And I'm ready to go. I'll be first at the YTV show.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Ash cross.
  • Ash: I'll deliver Steven's brand-new car to the YTV show before you.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash whistled.
  • Terry: Ha.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Terry. And he chuffed off grandly.
  • Ash: Hurry up, Funky Kong.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash.
  • Funky Kong: I must be careful and you must wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Funky Kong. But Ash didn't want to wait. At last, the car was on the flatbed.
  • Ash: Hooray.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash. Ash pumped his pistons, ready to race. He didn't want for the dock man to connect the couplings. He steamed off, pushing Steven's brand-new, Hat Blue car.
  • Funky Kong: Wait, Ash!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Funky Kong.
  • Dock Men: Wait!
  • Michael Brandon: Called the dock men. But Ash had a race to win and no time to lose.
  • Ash: I'll show Terry who's the fastest.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash. The children cheered as he puffed passed.
  • Ash: I'm on my way to the YTV show.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed cheerfully. The fastest way to the YTV show was to puff over Terry's hill. Ash's axles tingled, and his feet trembled.
  • Ash: Whee!
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped. And then...
  • Ash: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Steven's brand-new, Hat Blue car slid away from Ash and down the other side of the hill.
  • Ash: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Ash. And he raced after the runaway car. Rikochet was waiting at a signal. Sylvester puffed slowly into a siding. He had heavy wagons of fish.
  • Rikochet: Look out, Sylvester!
  • Michael Brandon: Sylvester's feet spun as he raced straight into the buffers. The fish shot into the air.
  • Sylvester: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Sylvester. Just then, Ash chased through the junction.
  • Ash: Sorry, Sylvester.
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped.
  • Ash: I have to keep up with the runaway car!
  • Michael Brandon: The runaway brand-new, Hat Blue car raced on. Ash puffed harder and harder. Ahead, there were works on the track. Thick mud was everywhere. Susie had just left the wash-down. Suddenly, she saw the runaway car racing towards her.
  • Susie: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Susie. Susie was covered in mud.
  • Ash: Sorry, Susie, can't stop.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash, and he raced off. The brand-new Hat Blue car sped towards the junction. Terry was waiting with the bandstand. Then there was trouble.
  • Ash: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Ash. Terry was surprised.
  • Terry: I told you I'd get to the YTV show first.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed proudly away. Ash huffed up to the haystack.
  • Ash: Cinders and ashes.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Ash: I've lost the race, and now Steven's brand-new car won't be at the YTV show on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash felt terrible.
  • Ash: I must go back to the docks for Funky Kong.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Ash pumped his pistons. Then he stopped.
  • Ash: But I'm not strong enough to pull Funky Kong on my own.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Terry puffed proudly back down the line. He had won the race and delivered the bandstand.
  • Ash: Terry.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Ash.
  • Ash: I need your help.
  • Michael Brandon: Terry could see that Ash was very upset.
  • Ash: Please, Terry, would you go and collect Funky Kong? It needs a strong character like you.
  • Michael Brandon: Terry liked everyone to know he was strong. He also liked to help his friend Ash. So, Terry raced to the docks. Terry collected Funky Kong and steamed back as fast as he could. Ash was very happy to see Terry chuff up with Funky Kong. This time Ash waited patiently as Funky Kong lifted Steven's car out of the haystack. Ash wanted to thank his friend Terry.
  • Ash: Terry.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Ash: Would you like to deliver the car?
  • Michael Brandon: Terry knew that delivering the brand new Hat Blue car was the most important job on the island.
  • Terry: Thank you, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: He smiled to his friend. This time, there was no race. The two friends arrived together at the Sodor show. Steven and Wilhelmina were very pleased to see their brand new Hat Blue car. Everyone clapped and cheered, and Ash cheered loudest of all.

Ash In Trouble

  • Michael Brandon: Ash In Trouble. It was a busy day for the characters on Steven's railway. Terry was taking passengers across the island. He felt magnificent. Virgil was delivering logs to the lumberyards. He was right on time. Rikochet was pleased to be pulling mail Beedrill. Al was happily hauling flatbeds of paint. And Earthworm Jim was carefully shunting wagons of fish at Brendam Docks. But Ash and Nikki were at the fitters' yard for repairs.
  • Nikki: I can't wait to get back to work. I'm taking the school choir to their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Nikki was ready to go.
  • Nikki: Good-bye, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Nikki: Good luck with your final inspection.
  • Ash: Thank you, Nikki.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash. Then Al puffed in to deliver his paint.
  • Al: Bust my boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: He laughed.
  • Al: You've broken down, Ash.
  • Ash: No, I haven't.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Ash.
  • Al: You must have done.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Al.
  • Al: Otherwise you wouldn't be at the fitters' yard. What a shame you're not a smart and useful character like me.
  • Michael Brandon: That made Ash cross. Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Steven.
  • Steven: Are you ready to take the school choir to their concert?
  • Ash: Nearly ready, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash excitedly.
  • Steven: Nearly ready isn't good enough.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Steven. Ash didn't want anyone else to collect the school choir. Carrying children was his favorite job. So Ash decided he would leave before his final inspection.
  • Ash: I'm ready now, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. And Ash chuffed away to pick up Suzy and Pietra. Ash was puffing up the line. He began to make strange noises. Suzy and Pietra knew something was wrong.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Something's wrong-- clackety-clong, clackety-clong. Something's wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: But Ash wasn't listening. The school choir cheered when they saw Ash.
  • Ash: All aboard.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Ash cheerfully as he clankety-clonged into Knapford Station.
  • Nikki: Who is making that nasty noise?
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Nikki. Nikki saw it was Ash.
  • Nikki: Did you have your final inspection?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Nikki. This made Ash cross.
  • Ash: I'm fine.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed. And he steamed away with the choir on board. Ash rattled even more.
  • Ash: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Ash had to stop at a signal. He was feeling hot and bothered. Ace saw that something was wrong with Ash.
  • Ace: Did you take on enough water at the fitters' yard?
  • Michael Brandon: This made Ash even more cross.
  • Ash: There's nothing wrong with me.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, the signal changed. Ash puffed away. Ash was rattling and steaming more and more.
  • Ash: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Further up the line, Rikochet was waiting at a crossing.
  • Rikochet: What's happened to you, Ash?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: You look puffed out.
  • Ash: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Ash. He didn't like being told there was something wrong with him.
  • Ash: There's nothing wrong with me, Rikochet.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash huffed. The barrier opened. Ash rattled away.
  • Ash: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Then there was trouble. Ash began to chuff slower and slower.
  • Ash: I need a rest.
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped. Ash clackety-clonged into a siding. Steam burst from his boiler and black smoke flew from his head. With a final clackety-clong, Ash broke down. Ash felt terrible. The school choir began to sing to pass the time.
  • Ash: The children will be late for their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash wailed sadly.
  • Ash: And it will all be my fault. I've let everyone down.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash was upset. Just then, Terry puffed around the bend.
  • Ash: I've broken down.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Ash.
  • Terry: Sorry, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Terry.
  • Terry: I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • Ash: Now what am I going to do?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Ash. He was worried. Then, Ash heard a whistle. It was Al.
  • Ash: If I ask Al for help, he'll laugh at me again. But I don't want the children to miss their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: So Ash tooted as loud as he could toot.
  • Ash: Stop!
  • Al: Bust my boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Al.
  • Al: I said you were a broken down little character.
  • Ash: I am.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Ash.
  • Ash: So I need your help. Can you take the children to their concert?
  • Michael Brandon: Ash whistled. Now Al didn't laugh at Ash. He could see Ash was in trouble, and he was happy to help his friend.
  • Al: I'll get the children there on time.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Ash knew he had to get back to be repaired as quickly as possible. Virgil was sent to collect Ash. He soon buffered up and shunted Ash to the fitters' yard. Before long, Ash was as good as new. He had even waited for his final inspection. Steven arrived.
  • Steven: You have been very patient, Ash. I have a special job for you. You are to collect the choir and bring them home again.
  • Ash: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Ash. He was delighted.
  • Ash: Clankety-clong, nothing is wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: He laughed. And Ash smiled all the way to the concert.

Dream On

  • Michael Brandon: Dream On. Pietro is a very special character from the mainland. He belongs to Stella and Carlos. He's very fast, very shiny, and very strong. He also likes to show off.
  • Pietro: Coming through!
  • Michael Brandon: The other characters don't like that. One day, Ash was shunting Beedrill at Natford Yards. Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Stella and Carlos are coming to YTV with Pietro.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Steven: Pietro will be very tired after his long journey, so you, Ash, must help him.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Pietro arrived. Ash was still working.
  • Pietro: Take my passenger Beedrill and shunt them away.
  • Michael Brandon: Pietro huffed grandly.
  • Ash: I will when I've shunted these Beedrill.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash. But Pietro didn't like waiting.
  • Pietro: I'm faster, shinier and stronger than you, Ash. You're just a Pokemon Trainer.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Ash cross. But he remembered Steven had told him to help. So, Ash shunted Pietro's passenger Beedrill safely into the sheds. When Ash arrived back at Tidmouth Sheds, he was very tired. Pietro was already there.
  • Pietro: Anyone can shunt Beedrill.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Pietro.
  • Pietro: But you have to be very special to pull Stella and Carlos.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Ash very cross.
  • Ash: I'll show that bossy boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash puffed.
  • Ash: Tomorrow, I'm going to be faster, shinier and stronger than Pietro.
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, Ash had to collect Beedrill from the smelters yards. When Ash reached the mainland, he decided he would go faster than Pietro. Ash puffed faster and faster. Ash steamed pass Nikki.
  • Nikki: Slow down, Ash!
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Nikki: You'll never get 'round the bend!
  • Michael Brandon: Ash slammed on his brakes.
  • Ash: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash, terrified. Luckily, he stopped just in time.
  • Ash: Maybe I can't be faster than Pietro.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • Ash: But I can still be shinier and stronger.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Ash was at the wash-down.
  • Ash: I'd like the shiniest polish ever.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Ash was rubbed and scrubbed until he sparkled and shone. It took a very long time. Ace pulled up next to Ash.
  • Ash: Look, Ace.
  • Michael Brandon: Whooshed Ash proudly.
  • Ash: I've never been so shiny!
  • Michael Brandon: Ace had an urgent message for Ash.
  • Ace: You have to shunt stone at the quarry.
  • Michael Brandon: He steamed.
  • Ace: They're waiting for you now!
  • Michael Brandon: So, Ash puffed quickly away. Ash arrived at the quarry.
  • Felicia: My!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Felicia.
  • Felicia: You're the shiniest trainer I've ever seen.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash was pleased. He puffed off proudly. Ash's Beedrill were filled with stone. All his sparkle and shine had gone. Ash was very unhappy. He steamed off with his load of stone. Ash came to Terry's Hill. He had never puffed up it with such a heavy load.
  • Ash: I may not be faster or shinier than Pietro.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash.
  • Ash: But I can still be stronger.
  • Michael Brandon: The hill got steeper and steeper, and the stone felt heavier and heavier. Ash's feet started to spin.
  • Ash: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Ash. Stones tipped out of the Beedrill. He slid all the way to the bottom. Ash wasn't strong enough, after all. Ash felt very, very silly.
  • Ash: All day I've tried to be faster and shinier and stronger than Pietro.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Ash: And I'm not!
  • Michael Brandon: Ash felt terrible. Next morning, Ash knew what he was going to do.
  • Ash: I don't want to be faster, shinier and stronger than Pietro anymore.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • Ash: I am very happy to shunt Beedrill.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, Steven arrived.
  • Steven: There is an emergency.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Steven: Carlos has to return to the mainland on very important business. Where are his special passenger Beedrill?
  • Ash: His Beedrill are right at the back of the yard, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash.
  • Ash: But don't worry. I can shunt them to the front very quickly.
  • Steven: Well done, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Steven.
  • Steven: Take them to Pietro immediately.
  • Michael Brandon: When Ash arrived at the sheds, Pietro's boiler was still cold.
  • Ash: You might be the fastest, shiniest and strongest character, but you're the slowest to get fired up.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash tooted cheekily. Now it was Pietro's turn to feel very silly. Then Carlos, Mel's father, arrived.
  • Carlos: Why are you not ready, Pietro? I will miss my airplane.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Carlos: Ash, you must take me to the airport.
  • Ash: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash. Carlos's special coat of arms was placed on Ash's boiler, and Ash steamed grandly away. Ash felt very proud as he raced to the airport. Ash arrived just in time. Gaff was waiting for them. Carlos was very pleased.
  • Carlos: There's nothing better than a character you can rely on.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Carlos: You saved the day, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash watched Carlos's airplane fly away. Ash knew he wasn't faster, shinier or stronger than Pietro, but he was certainly reliable. And that was a very useful thing to be.

Happy and Sad

  • Children: (singing) What makes a character happy? What makes a character sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes a character happy Won't make a character sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad. Chuffing children to the sea Will make a character smile. Or racing through the countryside For mile on mile on mile. Just being really useful Will make a character's day. Or going somewhere different Making new friends on the way. What makes a character happy? What makes a character sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes a character happy Won't make a character sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad.
  • Girl: (singing) Running out of water Yes, it makes an engine sad. Breaking down or being late Makes a character feel so bad Getting stuck up Terry's Hill Won't please Steven.
  • Children: (singing) But don't despair 'cause everyone Has days can go like that. What makes a character happy? What makes a character sad? It all depends what's happened And the type of day you've had. What makes a character happy Won't make a character sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad.
  • (Instrumental break)
  • Children: (singing) What makes a character happy? What makes a character sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes a character happy Won't make a character sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad.

Terry and The Construction Director

  • Michael Brandon: Terry and The Construction Director. There are railway lines all over the land of YTV. The railway runs from Brendam Docks...right across the countryside. So there are lots of signals. They help the characters to stay safe as they go about their work. All the characters have favorite jobs. Terry loves pulling the express. Terry thinks it's the most important job on the land. And Terry likes to feel important. One morning Steven came to see Terry.
  • Steven: Terry, the points are broken.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Steven.
  • Steven: An important mechanic is coming to fix them. You are to collect him at Marin Station. Then you must take him to the points as quickly as possible.
  • Terry: Don't worry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Terry.
  • Terry: I'll get him to the points for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Terry steamed to Marin. All the other characters were stuck. They couldn't go anywhere until the points were fixed. They all had to wait as Terry puffed grandly along the express line.
  • Terry: I'm an important character collecting an important passenger.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed proudly. Terry felt very grand. Terry pulled into Marin Station. There was a passenger carrying a toolbox waiting on the platform.
  • Terry: He must be the important mechanic.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought Terry.
  • Terry: All aboard!
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled. And the man with the toolbox climbed on board.
  • Stationmaster: Wait!
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: Omi is bringing more passengers.
  • Terry: I can't wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Terry huffed.
  • Terry: I have a very important passenger on board. I have to leave now.
  • Michael Brandon: And he left. Terry puffed proudly along. But he didn't know that the man with the toolbox wasn't the mechanic...or that Omi had brought the mechanic with all the other passengers. They were still waiting on the platform.
  • Mechanic: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned the mechanic.
  • Mechanic: I've lost the train. How will I ever fix the points now?
  • Michael Brandon: Terry rattled past Tom. Then he clattered past Jerry.
  • Terry: Important character coming through.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Terry. This made Jerry very cross. But the man with the toolbox was having a wonderful time. He was the only passenger, and he didn't have to stop at any of the other stations. At last Terry arrived at the broken points.
  • Ash: I'm glad you're here.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash.
  • Ash: None of the characters can move until the points are fixed.
  • Michael Brandon: But the man with the toolbox was very confused.
  • Carpenter: I'm not the mechanic.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the man.
  • Carpenter: I'm the carpenter. I thought Terry was taking me to the docks.
  • Terry: Oh, no! I've left the mechanic behind.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Terry.
  • Terry: I'll have to go back and get him.
  • Signalman: But you can't reverse down the express line with the express.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the signalman.
  • Ash: Maybe you could go on my line.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash.
  • Terry: That's a good idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Terry.
  • Terry: Thank you, Ash.
  • Michael Brandon: So Terry backed down the line and left his express coaches. Then he steamed onto Ashs's track. He reversed quickly down Ash's line. But he found Jerry blocking his way.
  • Terry: Out of my way!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Terry.
  • Terry: I've got an important passenger to collect.
  • Jerry: Ah, you can't get past.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Jerry.
  • Jerry: I can only go back as far as the next station. Then Tom is in the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Terry felt awful. All the characters were stuck, and it was all his fault.
  • Terry: How can I collect the mechanic?
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Then Terry had an idea.
  • Terry: Maybe all the characters can help.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought. Terry told Jerry his idea. Then Jerry puffed down the track to tell Tom.
  • Tom: What a great plan.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Tom. So Tom puffed back to collect the mechanic. The mechanic climbed on board. Then Tom chuffed back up the line. Tom left the mechanic at the station. Then Jerry took the mechanic to the next stop, where Terry was waiting for him. Finally, Terry took the mechanic to the broken points. The points were soon fixed...and all the characters could puff through.
  • Ash: Thank you, Terry!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Ash. That evening the railway was back to normal.
  • Terry: Thank you for helping me today.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Terry.
  • Terry: Even an important character like me needs help sometimes.

Ace's Triumph

  • Michael Brandon: Ace's Triumph. It was a beautiful autumn day on the land of YTV. It was time for the Harvest Festival. All the characters were busy. They puffed across the island with their Harvest Festival deliveries. Steven came to Tidmouth with news of an exciting special. Sharon Hawkins was arriving to give an open-air concert at the picnic fields.
  • Steven: Ace and Kitty Pryde, you are to collect Sharon Hawkins and take her from the airport to the picnic. Remember, Ace.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Steven.
  • Steven: Miss Hawkins is a very special passenger. I am relying on you to do a very good job.
  • Michael Brandon: Ash and Rikochet were excited for their friend, but Ace wasn't excited.
  • Ace: I've never taken a very special passenger before.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Ash: You take passengers all the time.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash.
  • Ace: But not very special ones.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Ace.
  • Ace: I'm worried I'll make a mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: As he and Kitty were cleaned and polished, Ace was still worried. And later, when the refreshments lady laid out a very special tea, Ace worried even more. As Ace puffed out of Maron Station, he was so busy worrying he forgot to slow down. Ace took the bend too fast. Henrietta rocked this way and that. The tea was spilt. Then Ace made another mistake. He was still worrying. He didn't see the red signal until the very last moment. He screeched to a stop. Henrietta biffed into him. All the cakes fell onto the floor.Just then, Rikochet puffed passed pulling vegetables.
  • Rikochet: Hello, Rikochet.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped happily. But Ace didn't hear him. He was too busy worrying about his very special passenger. Ace puffed under a bridge. The children waved. But Ace didn't see them. He was so busy worrying that he made another mistake. Ace took the wrong track. He rattled down an overgrown branch line. It was lumpy and bumpy, dusty and dirty. And the branches and bushes covered Ace and Kitty in leaves. Ash puffed by pulling Beedrill of tomatoes.
  • Ash: Hello, Ace.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Ash: What's happened to you?
  • Michael Brandon: But Ace didn't hear him. He was still too busy worrying about his very special passenger. Ace picked up speed. He was so busy worrying he didn't notice the farmer waving from the fields. And he didn't notice the dip in the track. And the big mud puddle.
  • Ro: Slow down.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Ro. But it was too late. Ace splashed through the puddle. Kitty was covered from head to toe in dark, brown mud. Ace arrived at the airport. When Sharon Hawkins saw Ace and Henrietta, she was very upset.
  • Sharon: I can't arrive at a picnic on such a dirty train.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Sharon: What would my public say?
  • Michael Brandon: Ace was so worried, he didn't know what to do. If Sharon wouldn't get into Kitty, Ace couldn't take her to the picnic, and the concert would be cancelled. Sharon saw that Ace was very worried.
  • Sharon: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Sharon: A good clean is all you need.
  • Michael Brandon: So at last, Ace stopped worrying. Sharon carefully boarded Kitty, and Ace steamed away to the wash-down.
  • Workman: Don't worry, Ace!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the workman.
  • Workman: We'll soon have you sparkling like new.
  • Michael Brandon: They cheerfully got to work with buckets and brushes. Kitty loved the foam and the fuss. Sharon thought it was fun too.
  • Sharon: I've never seen a bunny have a bath before!
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Sharon: How delightful!
  • Michael Brandon: Soon, the workmen were whistling, Sharon was singing, and the refreshments lady made another very special tea. Ace saw that nobody worried and nobody made a mistake. Everyone had fun. Before Ace knew it, it was time to go. Ace steamed towards the picnic fields. He came to a steep bend. Now he wasn't worried, and he didn't make a mistake. Ace remembered to slow down. He puffed perfectly round the bend. He wheeshed through Knapford Station while Sharon enjoyed her very special tea. Ace was doing a splendid job. When the children called...
  • Children: Hello, Ace!
  • Michael Brandon: ...he rang his bell brightly. Ace wasn't worrying anymore. Ace carefully followed the tracks to the picnic fields. He took the right route and started to enjoy his journey. Even when he saw cows on the track, Ace didn't worry. Everyone helped clear the track.
  • Sharon: Shoo, cows, shoo, shoo cows.
  • Michael Brandon: Sang Sharon. And Ace joined in, ringing his bell. Soon the tracks were cleared and the cows were safely in their field. Ace puffed on his way. Ace stopped smoothly at the picnic. Everybody applauded. Sharon was happy. And so was Steven.
  • Steven: Ace, you have done a very good job.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Ace was pleased. He wouldn't worry about taking special passengers ever again.

Scott and The Mail

  • Michael Brandon: Scott and The Mail. Scott is a very wise character. He knows all about Steven's railway. He often works as a back character. The other characters know they can always ask Scott for help. One morning, Steven came to Tidmouth sheds.
  • Steven: Rikochet has broken down. He's at the repair yard.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Steven.
  • Steven: I need another character to take the mail.
  • Nikki: Scott can do it.
  • Michael Brandon: Chirped Nikki.
  • Virgil: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Virgil.
  • Virgil: Scott knows how to do everything.
  • Steven: Good idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Steven. But Scott had never taken the mail before. Steven told Scott to collect the parcels and deliver them, just like Rikochet. Scott wanted to ask how Rikochet would deliver the mail, but he didn't want to look silly.
  • Scott: I don't want Steven to think I can't deliver the mail.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Scott.
  • Scott: I'll have to work out how to do it by myself.
  • Michael Brandon: When Scott arrived at the mail depot, the stationmaster was waiting for him.
  • Stationmaster: You have lots of parcels to deliver today.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: Some for Farmer McColl, some for the children's party at Maithwaite and some more for the school.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott didn't know which of the parcels to deliver first.
  • Scott: Maybe I should go to Farmer McColl's.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward sighed.
  • Scott: Or maybe the school.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott puffed up to a junction. Ash was waiting.
  • Ash: Hello, Scott.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Ash.
  • Ash: Are you delivering the mail today?
  • Scott: Uh, yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Scott.
  • Ash: You'll be good at that.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Ash.
  • Ash: You know how to do everything.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott really wanted to ask Ash which parcels he should deliver first, but Ash didn't want to look silly. The signal changed. Scott watched Ash puff away. He was worried.
  • Scott: Everyone thinks I know how to do everything.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott moaned.
  • Scott: I hope I get it right.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott decided to take the parcels to the children's party first. But Scott didn't know that Rikochet delivered the parcels in a special order. He accidentally left Farmer McColl's parcels with the children. And he whooshed away. Scott puffed across the countryside. Next, he delivered some parcels to the school. And finally, he delivered the rest of the parcels to Farmer McColl.
  • Scott: That was easy.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Scott.
  • Scott: I made all the deliveries, and I didn't have to ask anyone how to do it.
  • Michael Brandon: He felt very proud and very relieved. But Steven was getting lots of phone calls. Scott had delivered the wrong parcels to the wrong places. When Scott found out what he had done, he was upset.
  • Scott: I'll have to deliver them again.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed sadly. Scott was worried. Scott knew everyone was waiting for their parcels. He would have to hurry. First, Scott collected the parcels from the children's party. Then, he collected the parcels from the school.
  • Scott: Now I have to collect the parcels from Farmer McColl.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Scott, and he steamed away. Scott was unhappy.
  • Scott: I must not be late with these deliveries.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed. Scott didn't want to let Steven down.
  • Scott: I must hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Scott raced on.
  • Scott: Mustn't be late, mustn't be late.
  • Michael Brandon: But then...Scott had to stop at a junction. He didn't know which was the fastest track to take to the farm. Scott was in such a rush, he didn't ask the signalman.
  • Signalman: Stop!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted the signalman.
  • Signalman: That track is closed!
  • Michael Brandon: But it was too late. Scott rattled around the bend and straight into a barrier!
  • (Scott crashed into a barrier)
  • Michael Brandon: Parcels flew everywhere!
  • Scott: I'll never deliver the parcels on time now.
  • Michael Brandon: He moaned. Scott felt terrible. Soon the parcels were loaded back into Scott's Beedrill. Scott knew now he had to ask for help.
  • Scott: I must find Rikochet. I will ask him what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: So Scott steamed off to the repair yard. Rikochet was still being fixed.
  • Scott: Rikochet, will you tell me how to deliver the mail?
  • Michael Brandon: Scott chuffed.
  • Rikochet: Of course I will.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Rikochet. He didn't think Scott was silly for asking at all.
  • Rikochet: I deliver the parcels in a special order. I always start with the delivery that is furthest away.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rikochet.
  • Rikochet: Then I work my way back to Tidmouth sheds.
  • Michael Brandon: Scott was very happy he had asked Rikochet what to do. So Scott puffed across the island. Now he knew how to deliver all the parcels in the right order. The children got their parcels in time for the party; the right parcels were delivered to the school; and Farmer McColl was very pleased. Everyone was happy. Everyone knew Scott was a wise engine, but now Scott felt even wiser.
