  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surrounded 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!

  • (A wheesh of steam occurs and we begin Thomas and The Runaway Car)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Runaway Car. It was a beautiful day on the Island of Sodor. Thomas was feeling especially happy. He was on his way to Brendam Docks to collect a special special. It was the day of the Sodor show. Sir Topham Hatt's brand-new car was being unloaded. It was in Lady Hatt's favorite color-- Hat Blue. Sir Topham Hatt had chosen Thomas to take the car from the docks to the Sodor show. Thomas was so proud, he thought his boiler would burst. Rocky was slowly lowering the car onto a flatbed.
  • Thomas: All the engines wanted this job.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed proudly.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt chose me to take the brand-new bandstand.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: And I'm ready to go. I'll be first at the Sodor show.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: I'll deliver Sir Topham Hatt's brand-new car to the Sodor show before you.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas whistled.
  • Gordon: Ha.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Gordon. And he chuffed off grandly.
  • Thomas: Hurry up, Rocky.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Rocky: I must be careful and you must wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rocky. But Thomas didn't want to wait. At last, the car was on the flatbed.
  • Thomas: Hooray.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. Thomas pumped his pistons, ready to race. He didn't want for the dock man to connect the couplings. He steamed off, pushing Sir Topham Hatt's brand-new, Hat Blue car.
  • Rocky: Wait, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Rocky.
  • Dock Men: Wait!
  • Michael Brandon: Called the dock men. But Thomas had a race to win and no time to lose.
  • Thomas: I'll show Gordon who's the fastest.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. The children cheered as he puffed passed.
  • Thomas: I'm on my way to the Sodor show.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed cheerfully. The fastest way to the Sodor show was to puff over Gordon's hill. Thomas's axles tingled, and his wheels trembled.
  • Thomas: Whee!
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped. And then...
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt's brand-new, Hat Blue car slid away from Thomas and down the other side of the hill.
  • Thomas: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. And he raced after the runaway car. Percy was waiting at a signal. Arthur puffed slowly into a siding. He had heavy wagons of fish.
  • Percy: Look out, Arthur!
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur's wheel spun as he raced straight into the buffers. The fish shot into the air.
  • Arthur: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Arthur. Just then, Thomas chased through the junction.
  • Thomas: Sorry, Arthur.
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped.
  • Thomas: I have to keep up with the runaway car!
  • Michael Brandon: The runaway brand-new, Hat Blue car raced on. Thomas puffed harder and harder. Ahead, there were works on the track. Thick mud was everywhere. Rosie had just left the wash-down. Suddenly, she saw the runaway car racing towards her.
  • Rosie: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rosie. Rosie was covered in mud.
  • Thomas: Sorry, Rosie, can't stop.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas, and he raced off. The brand-new Hat Blue car sped towards the junction. Gordon was waiting with the bandstand. Then there was trouble.
  • Thomas: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. Gordon was surprised.
  • Gordon: I told you I'd get to the Sodor show first.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed proudly away. Thomas huffed up to the haystack.
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: I've lost the race, and now Sir Topham Hatt's brand-new car won't be at the Sodor show on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt terrible.
  • Thomas: I must go back to the docks for Rocky.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Thomas pumped his pistons. Then he stopped.
  • Thomas: But I'm not strong enough to pull Rocky on my own.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Gordon puffed proudly back down the line. He had won the race and delivered the bandstand.
  • Thomas: Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: I need your help.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon could see that Thomas was very upset.
  • Thomas: Please, Gordon, would you go and collect Rocky? It needs a strong engine like you.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon liked everyone to know he was strong. He also liked to help his friend Thomas. So, Gordon raced to the docks. Gordon collected Rocky and steamed back as fast as he could. Thomas was very happy to see Gordon chuff up with Rocky. This time Thomas waited patiently as Rocky lifted Sir Topham Hatt's car out of the haystack. Thomas wanted to thank his friend Gordon.
  • Thomas: Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Thomas: Would you like to deliver the car?
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon knew that delivering the brand new Hat Blue car was the most important job on the island.
  • Gordon: Thank you, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: He smiled to his friend. This time, there was no race. The two friends arrived together at the Sodor show. Sir Topham and Lady Hatt were very pleased to see their brand new Hat Blue car. Everyone clapped and cheered, and Thomas cheered loudest of all.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas In Trouble)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas In Trouble. It was a busy day for the engines on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. Gordon was taking passengers across the island. He felt magnificent. Henry was delivering logs to the lumberyards. He was right on time. Percy was pleased to be pulling mail cars. James was happily hauling flatbeds of paint. And Salty was carefully shunting wagons of fish at Brendam Docks. But Thomas and Emily were at the fitters' yard for repairs.
  • Emily: I can't wait to get back to work. I'm taking the school choir to their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was ready to go.
  • Emily: Good-bye, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Emily: Good luck with your final inspection.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. Then James puffed in to deliver his paint.
  • James: Bust my boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: He laughed.
  • James: You've broken down, Thomas.
  • Thomas: No, I haven't.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • James: You must have done.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: Otherwise you wouldn't be at the fitters' yard. What a shame you're not a smart and useful engine like me.
  • Michael Brandon: That made Thomas cross. Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Are you ready to take the school choir to their concert?
  • Thomas: Nearly ready, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas excitedly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nearly ready isn't good enough.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas didn't want anyone else to collect the school choir. Carrying children was his favorite job. So Thomas decided he would leave before his final inspection.
  • Thomas: I'm ready now, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. And Thomas chuffed away to pick up Annie and Clarabel. Thomas was puffing up the line. He began to make strange noises. Annie and Clarabel knew something was wrong.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Something's wrong-- clackety-clong, clackety-clong. Something's wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas wasn't listening. The school choir cheered when they saw Thomas.
  • Thomas: All aboard.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas cheerfully as he clankety-clonged into Knapford Station.
  • Emily: Who is making that nasty noise?
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Emily. Emily saw it was Thomas.
  • Emily: Did you have your final inspection?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily. This made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: I'm fine.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed. And he steamed away with the choir on board. Thomas rattled even more.
  • Thomas: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Thomas had to stop at a signal. He was feeling hot and bothered. Toby saw that something was wrong with Thomas.
  • Toby: Did you take on enough water at the fitters' yard?
  • Michael Brandon: This made Thomas even more cross.
  • Thomas: There's nothing wrong with me.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, the signal changed. Thomas puffed away. Thomas was rattling and steaming more and more.
  • Thomas: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Further up the line, Percy was waiting at a crossing.
  • Percy: What's happened to you, Thomas?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: You look puffed out.
  • Thomas: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Thomas. He didn't like being told there was something wrong with him.
  • Thomas: There's nothing wrong with me, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas huffed. The barrier opened. Thomas rattled away.
  • Thomas: Clackety-clong, clackety-clong.
  • Michael Brandon: Then there was trouble. Thomas began to chuff slower and slower.
  • Thomas: I need a rest.
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped. Thomas clackety-clonged into a siding. Steam burst from his boiler and black smoke flew from his funnel. With a final clackety-clong, Thomas broke down. Thomas felt terrible. The school choir began to sing to pass the time.
  • Thomas: The children will be late for their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas wailed sadly.
  • Thomas: And it will all be my fault. I've let everyone down.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was upset. Just then, Gordon puffed around the bend.
  • Thomas: I've broken down
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Thomas.
  • Gordon; Sorry, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • Thomas: Now what am I going to do?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. He was worried. Then, Thomas heard a whistle. It was James.
  • Thomas: If I ask James for help, he'll laugh at me again. But I don't want the children to miss their concert.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas tooted as loud as he could toot.
  • Thomas: Stop!
  • James: Bust my boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed James.
  • James: I said you were a broken down little engine.
  • Thomas: I am.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Thomas.
  • Thomas: So I need your help. Can you take the children to their concert?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas whistled. Now James didn't laugh at Thomas. He could see Thomas was in trouble, and he was happy to help his friend.
  • James: I'll get the children there on time.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Thomas knew he had to get back to be repaired as quickly as possible. Henry was sent to collect Thomas. He soon buffered up and shunted Thomas to the fitters' yard. Before long, Thomas was as good as new. He had even waited for his final inspection. Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have been very patient, Thomas. I have a special job for you. You are to collect the choir and bring them home again.
  • Thomas: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. He was delighted.
  • Thomas: Clankety-clong, nothing is wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: He laughed. And Thomas smiled all the way to the concert.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occcurs and we begin Dream On)
  • Michael Brandon: Dream On. Spencer is a very special engine from the mainland. He belongs to the Duke and Duchess of Boxford. He's very fast, very shiny, and very strong. He also likes to show off.
  • Spencer: Coming through!
  • Michael Brandon: The other engines don't like that. One day, Thomas was shunting freight cars at Natford Yards. Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The Duke and Duchess of Boxford are coming to Sodor with Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Spencer will be very tired after his long journey, so you, Thomas, must help him.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Spencer arrived. Thomas was still working.
  • Spencer: Take my passenger cars and shunt them away.
  • Michael Brandon: Spencer huffed grandly.
  • Thomas: I will when I've shunted these freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. But Spencer didn't like waiting.
  • Spencer: I'm faster, shinier and stronger than you, Thomas. You're just a little tank engine.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Thomas cross. But he remembered Sir Topham Hatt had told him to help. So, Thomas shunted Spencer's passenger cars safely into the sheds. When Thomas arrived back at Tidmouth Sheds, he was very tired. Spencer was already there.
  • Spencer: Anyone can shunt freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Spencer.
  • Spencer: But you have to be very special to pull the Duke and Duchess of Boxford.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Thomas very cross.
  • Thomas: I'll show that bossy boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed.
  • Thomas: Tomorrow, I'm going to be faster, shinier and stronger than Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, Thomas had to collect freight cars from the smelters yards. When Thomas reached the mainland, he decided he would go faster than Spencer. Thomas puffed faster and faster. Thomas steamed pass Emily.
  • Emily: Slow down, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Emily: You'll never get 'round the bend!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas slammed on his brakes.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas, terrified. Luckily, he stopped just in time.
  • Thomas: Maybe I can't be faster than Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • Thomas: But I can still be shinier and stronger.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Thomas was at the wash-down.
  • Thomas: I'd like the shiniest polish ever.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Thomas was rubbed and scrubbed until he sparkled and shone. It took a very long time. Toby pulled up next to Thomas.
  • Toby: Look, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Whooshed Thomas proudly.
  • Thomas: I've never been so shiny!
  • Michael Brandon: Toby had an urgent message for Thomas.
  • Toby: You have to shunt stone at the quarry.
  • Michael Brandon: He steamed.
  • Toby: They're waiting for you now!
  • Michael Brandon: So, Thomas puffed quickly away. Thomas arrived at the quarry.
  • Mavis: My!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: You're the shiniest engine I've ever seen.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was pleased. He puffed off proudly. Thomas's cars were filled with stone. All his sparkle and shine had gone. Thomas was very unhappy. He steamed off with his load of stone. Thomas came to Gordon's Hill. He had never puffed up it with such a heavy load.
  • Thomas: I may not be faster or shinier than Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: But I can still be stronger.
  • Michael Brandon: The hill got steeper and steeper, and the stone felt heavier and heavier. Thomas's wheels started to spin.
  • Thomas: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. Stones tipped out of the freight cars. He slid all the way to the bottom. Thomas wasn't strong enough, after all. Thomas felt very, very silly.
  • Thomas: All day I've tried to be faster and shinier and stronger than Spencer.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Thomas: And I'm not!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt terrible. Next morning, Thomas knew what he was going to do.
  • Thomas: I don't want to be faster, shinier and stronger than Spencer anymore.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • Thomas: I am very happy to shunt freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is an emergency.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The Duke of Boxford has to return to the mainland on very important business. Where are his special passenger cars?
  • Thomas: His cars are right at the back of the yard, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: But don't worry. I can shunt them to the front very quickly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take them to Spencer immediately.
  • Michael Brandon: When Thomas arrived at the sheds, Spencer's boiler was still cold.
  • Thomas: You might be the fastest, shiniest and strongest engine, but you're the slowest to get fired up.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted cheekily. Now it was Spencer's turn to feel very silly. Then the Duke arrived.
  • Duke: Why are you not ready, Spencer? I will miss my airplane.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Duke: Thomas, you must take me to the airport.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. The Duke's special coat of arms was placed on Thomas's boiler, and Thomas steamed grandly away. Thomas felt very proud as he raced to the airport. Thomas arrived just in time. Jeremy was waiting for them. The Duke was very pleased.
  • Duke: There's nothing better than an engine you can rely on.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Duke: You saved the day, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas watched the Duke's airplane fly away. Thomas knew he wasn't faster, shinier or stronger than Spencer, but he was certainly reliable. And that was a very useful thing to be.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Happy and Sad)
  • Children: (singing) What makes an engine happy? What makes an engine sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes an engine happy Won't make an engine sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad. Chuffing children to the sea Will make an engine smile. Or racing through the countryside For mile on mile on mile. Just being really useful Will make an engine's day. Or going somewhere different Making new friends on the way. What makes an engine happy? What makes an engine sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes an engine happy Won't make an engine 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 an engine feel so bad Getting stuck up Gordon's Hill Won't please Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Children: (singing) But don't despair 'cause everyone Has days can go like that. What makes an engine happy? What makes an engine sad? It all depends what's happened And the type of day you've had. What makes an engine happy Won't make an engine sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad.
  • (Instrumental break)
  • Children: (singing) What makes an engine happy? What makes an engine sad? It all depends what's happened And that type of day you've had. What makes an engine happy Won't make an engine sad? So many things can make your day A good one or a bad.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Gordon and The Mechanic)
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon and The Mechanic. There are railway lines all over the Island of Sodor. The railway runs from Brendam Docks...right across the countryside. So there are lots of signals. They help the engines to stay safe as they go about their work. All the engines have favorite jobs. Gordon loves pulling the express. Gordon thinks it's the most important job on the island. And Gordon likes to feel important. One morning Sir Topham Hatt came to see Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon, the points are broken.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: 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.
  • Gordon: Don't worry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'll get him to the points for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon steamed to Marin. All the other engines were stuck. They couldn't go anywhere until the points were fixed. They all had to wait as Gordon puffed grandly along the express line.
  • Gordon: I'm an important engine collecting an important passenger.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed proudly. Gordon felt very grand. Gordon pulled into Marin Station. There was a passenger carrying a toolbox waiting on the platform.
  • Gordon: He must be the important mechanic.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought Gordon.
  • (Gordon's whistle toots)
  • Gordon: All aboard!
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled. And the man with the toolbox climbed on board.
  • Stationmaster: Wait!
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: Bertie the Bus is bringing more passengers.
  • Gordon: I can't wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon huffed.
  • Gordon: I have a very important passenger on board. I have to leave now.
  • Michael Brandon: And he left. Gordon puffed proudly along. But he didn't know that the man with the toolbox wasn't the mechanic...or that Bertie the Bus 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: Gordon rattled past Donald. Then he clattered past Douglas.
  • Gordon: Important engine coming through.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Gordon. This made Douglas 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 Gordon arrived at the broken points.
  • Thomas: I'm glad you're here.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Gordon: None of the engines 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 Gordon was taking me to the docks.
  • Gordon: Oh, no! I've left the mechanic behind.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Gordon.
  • Gordon: 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.
  • Thomas: Maybe you could go on my line.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Gordon: That's a good idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Thank you, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: So Gordon backed down the line and left his express coaches. Then he steamed onto Thomas's track. He reversed quickly down Thomas's line. But he found Douglas blocking his way.
  • Gordon: Out of my way!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I've got an important passenger to collect.
  • Douglas: Ah, you can't get past.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Douglas.
  • Douglas: I can only go back as far as the next station. Then Donald is in the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon felt awful. All the engines were stuck, and it was all his fault.
  • Gordon: How can I collect the mechanic?
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Then Gordon had an idea.
  • Gordon: Maybe all the engines can help.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought. Gordon told Douglas his idea. Then Douglas puffed down the track to tell Donald.
  • Donald: What a great plan.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Donald. So Donald puffed back to collect the mechanic. The mechanic climbed on board. Then Donald chuffed back up the line. Donald left the mechanic at the station. Then Douglas took the mechanic to the next stop, where Gordon was waiting for him. Finally, Gordon took the mechanic to the broken points. The points were soon fixed...and all the engines could puff through.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Gordon!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. That evening the railway was back to normal.
  • Gordon: Thank you for helping me today.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Even an important engine like me needs help sometimes.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby's Triumph)
  • Michael Brandon: Toby's Triumph. It was a beautiful autumn day on the Island of Sodor. It was time for the Harvest Festival. All the engines were busy. They puffed across the island with their Harvest Festival deliveries. Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth with news of an exciting special. Alicia Botti was arriving to give an open-air concert at the picnic fields.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Toby and Henrietta, you are to collect Alicia Botti and take her from the airport to the picnic. Remember, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Miss Botti is a very special passenger. I am relying on you to do a very good job.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Percy were excited for their friend, but Toby wasn't excited.
  • Toby: I've never taken a very special passenger before.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Thomas: You take passengers all the time.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Toby: But not very special ones.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby.
  • Toby: I'm worried I'll make a mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: As he and Henrietta were cleaned and polished, Toby was still worried. And later, when the refreshments lady laid out a very special tea, Toby worried even more. As Toby puffed out of Maron Station, he was so busy worrying he forgot to slow down. Toby took the bend too fast. Henrietta rocked this way and that. The tea was spilt. Then Toby 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, Percy puffed passed pulling vegetables.
  • Percy: Hello, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped happily. But Toby didn't hear him. He was too busy worrying about his very special passenger. Toby puffed under a bridge. The children waved. But Toby didn't see them. He was so busy worrying that he made another mistake. Toby 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 Toby and Henrietta in leaves. Thomas puffed by pulling freight cars of tomatoes.
  • Thomas: Hello, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted.
  • Thomas: What's happened to you?
  • Michael Brandon: But Toby didn't hear him. He was still too busy worrying about his very special passenger. Toby 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.
  • Elizabeth: Slow down.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Elizabeth. But it was too late. Toby splashed through the puddle. Henrietta was covered from bumper to buffer in dark, brown mud. Toby arrived at the airport. When Alicia Botti saw Toby and Henrietta, she was very upset.
  • Alicia Botti: I can't arrive at a picnic on such a dirty train.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Alicia Botti: What would my public say?
  • Michael Brandon: Toby was so worried, he didn't know what to do. If Alicia Botti wouldn't get into Henrietta, Toby couldn't take her to the picnic, and the concert would be cancelled. Alicia saw that Toby was very worried.
  • Alicia Botti: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Alicia Botti: A good clean is all you need.
  • Michael Brandon: So at last, Toby stopped worrying. Alicia carefully boarded Henrietta, and Toby steamed away to the wash-down.
  • Workman: Don't worry, Toby!
  • 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. Henrietta loved the foam and the fuss. Alicia Botti thought it was fun too.
  • Alicia Botti: I've never seen an engine have a bath before!
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Alicia Botti: How delightful!
  • Michael Brandon: Soon, the workmen were whistling, Alicia was singing, and the refreshments lady made another very special tea. Toby saw that nobody worried and nobody made a mistake. Everyone had fun. Before Toby knew it, it was time to go. Toby steamed towards the picnic fields. He came to a steep bend. Now he wasn't worried, and he didn't make a mistake. Toby remembered to slow down. He puffed perfectly round the bend. He wheeshed through Knapford Station while Alicia Botti enjoyed her very special tea. Toby was doing a splendid job. When the children called...
  • Children: Hello, Toby!
  • Michael Brandon: ...he rang his bell brightly. Toby wasn't worrying anymore. Toby 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, Toby didn't worry. Everyone helped clear the track.
  • Alicia Botti: Shoo, cows, shoo, shoo cows.
  • Michael Brandon: Sang Alicia Botti. And Toby joined in, ringing his bell. Soon the tracks were cleared and the cows were safely in their field. Toby puffed on his way. Toby stopped smoothly at the picnic. Everybody applauded. Alicia Botti was happy. And so was Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Toby, you have done a very good job.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Toby was pleased. He wouldn't worry about taking special passengers ever again.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Edward and The Mail)
  • Michael Brandon: Edward and The Mail. Edward is a very wise engine. He knows all about Sir Topham Hatt's railway. He often works as a back engine. The other engines know they can always ask Edward for help. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy has broken down. He's at the repair yard.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need another engine to take the mail.
  • Emily: Edward can do it.
  • Michael Brandon: Chirped Emily.
  • Henry: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Edward knows how to do everything.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. But Edward had never taken the mail before. Sir Topham Hatt told Edward to collect the parcels and deliver them, just like Percy. Edward wanted to ask how Percy would deliver the mail, but he didn't want to look silly.
  • Edward: I don't want Sir Topham Hatt to think I can't deliver the mail.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Edward.
  • Edward: I'll have to work out how to do it by myself.
  • Michael Brandon: When Edward 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: Edward didn't know which of the parcels to deliver first.
  • Edward: Maybe I should go to Farmer McColl's.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward sighed.
  • Edward: Or maybe the school.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward puffed up to a junction. Thomas was waiting.
  • Thomas: Hello, Edward.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Are you delivering the mail today?
  • Edward: Uh, yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Edward.
  • Thomas: You'll be good at that.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: You know how to do everything.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward really wanted to ask Thomas which parcels he should deliver first, but Edward didn't want to look silly. The signal changed. Edward watched Thomas puff away. He was worried.
  • Edward: Everyone thinks I know how to do everything.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward moaned.
  • Edward: I hope I get it right.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward decided to take the parcels to the children's party first. But Edward didn't know that Percy delivered the parcels in a special order. He accidentally left Farmer McColl's parcels with the children. And he whooshed away. Edward puffed across the countryside. Next, he delivered some parcels to the school. And finally, he delivered the rest of the parcels to Farmer McColl.
  • Edward: That was easy.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Edward.
  • Edward: 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 Sir Topham Hatt was getting lots of phone calls. Edward had delivered the wrong parcels to the wrong places. When Edward found out what he had done, he was upset.
  • Edward: I'll have to deliver them again.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed sadly. Edward was worried. Edward knew everyone was waiting for their parcels. He would have to hurry. First, Edward collected the parcels from the children's party. Then, he collected the parcels from the school.
  • Edward: Now I have to collect the parcels from Farmer McColl.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Edward, and he steamed away. Edward was unhappy.
  • Edward: I must not be late with these deliveries.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed. Edward didn't want to let Sir Topham Hatt down.
  • Edward: I must hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. Edward raced on.
  • Edward: Mustn't be late, mustn't be late.
  • Michael Brandon: But then...Edward had to stop at a junction. He didn't know which was the fastest track to take to the farm. Edward 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. Edward rattled around the bend and straight into a barrier!
  • (Edward crashed into a barrier)
  • Michael Brandon: Parcels flew everywhere!
  • Edward: I'll never deliver the parcels on time now.
  • Michael Brandon: He moaned. Edward felt terrible. Soon the parcels were loaded back into Edward's trucks. Edward knew now he had to ask for help.
  • Edward: I must find Percy. I will ask him what to do.
  • Michael Brandon: So Edward steamed off to the repair yard. Percy was still being fixed.
  • Edward: Percy, will you tell me how to deliver the mail?
  • Michael Brandon: Edward chuffed.
  • Percy: Of course I will.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy. He didn't think Edward was silly for asking at all.
  • Percy: I deliver the parcels in a special order. I always start with the delivery that is furthest away.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy.
  • Percy: Then I work my way back to Tidmouth sheds.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward was very happy he had asked Percy what to do. So Edward 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 Edward was a wise engine, but now Edward felt even wiser.
  • (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!
  • Girl: He's the cheeky one.
  • Children: James!
  • Girl: Is vain but lots of fun.
  • Children: Percy!
  • Girl: Pulls the mail on time.
  • Children: Gordon!
  • Girl: Thunders down the line.
  • Children: Emily!
  • Girl: Really knows her stuff.
  • Children: Henry!
  • Girl: Toots and huffs and puffs.
  • Children: Edward!
  • Girl: Wants to help and share.
  • Children: Toby! (singing) 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. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
