Percy's Ghostly Trick

  • (Owl hooting twice)
  • (Ghost whistle blows)
  • Percy: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Thomas: Percy what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Thomas and Toby: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas and Toby.
  • Percy: He didn't say, oh it makes my wheels wobble to think of it.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're just a silly little engine. I'm not scared.
  • Percy: Thomas didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Percy's Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Percy was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Percy knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shone green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and a loud crash is heard as he hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Percy broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Percy's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Percy, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Percy chuckled.
  • Percy: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Thomas. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little engine.
  • George Carlin: Toby promised to help.
  • (Toby leaves Percy and heads back to the sheds)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Toby: Percy's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby.
  • Thomas: Poor engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Toby: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Thomas: Out with it, Toby, I can't wait all evening.
  • Toby: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: It looked like Percy's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Thomas: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Toby. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear Percy's whistle and a loud brake sound)
  • Percy: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Toby: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Percy: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Percy all along)
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • George Carlin: It was morning when Thomas returned.
  • Toby: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I knew you be sad about Percy, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (Percy's whistle is heard again, along with a ghostly one)
  • Thomas: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Percy was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Percy: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Toby: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Toby.
  • Toby: ...that our Thomas was just seen a ghost!

Thomas, Percy and The Dragon

  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy are good friends, but sometimes Percy teases Thomas about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all. One evening he was dozing happily in the shed, but Percy wanted to talk.
  • Percy: Wake up, Thomas. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?
  • Thomas: Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was your really.
  • George Carlin: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really?
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • George Carlin: Thomas decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I would like you to go to the harbour tonight. You have to collect something rather unusual.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. Meanwhile, Percy was moving some freight cars into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman changed the switches and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The switches are jammed.
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back for Percy. The workmen will have to mend them in the morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman. Percy was speechless. He watched as the other engines went home to the shed. Night-time came and Percy began to feel very lonely.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He murmured.
  • Percy: It's very dark.
  • (A screeching noise can be heard)
  • Percy: Oh! Oh! What's that?!
  • George Carlin: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realize this.
  • Percy: Oh, I wish Thomas was here too.
  • George Carlin: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's a dragon!
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Workmen lifted the dragon onto Thomas' load loader and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Thomas set off into the misty night. Percy was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Thomas was approaching him.
  • (Thomas and the dragon approach Percy and scare him)
  • George Carlin: Percy woke up with a start.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the switches were mended and Percy puffed back to the junction. Gordon was just about to leave with the express.
  • Percy: You'll never guess what I saw last night.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was in no mood for puzzles.
  • Gordon: I'm a busy engine. I don't have time for your games.
  • Percy: I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • George Carlin: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No one believes me.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • George Carlin: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: Help! Save me!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: It's alright.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas. And he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • George Carlin: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too.

Diesel's Devious Deed

  • George Carlin: Diesel the new engine was sulking.
  • Freight Cars: Trucks are waiting in the yard...
  • George Carlin: The freight cars were not stop singing rudely at him.
  • Freight Cars: Show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Diesel. In and out he creeps about like a big black weasel...
  • George Carlin: Duck was horrified.
  • Freight Cars: When he pulls the wrong trucks out...
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Freight Cars: Pop goes the Diesel!
  • Duck: I'm sorry our cars were rude to you, Diesel.
  • George Carlin: Diesel was still furious.
  • Diesel: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Henry: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: Duck would never do that. We engines have our differences, but we never talked about them to the cars. That would be dis...dis...
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry. Diesel hated Duck. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Duck. Next day, he spoke to the cars.
  • Diesel: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Duck told me one about Gordon. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Gordon I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Freight Cars: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the cars.
  • Freight Cars: Gordon will be cross with Duck when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Duck for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the engines as they went by. Soon Gordon, Henry, and James found out why.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry.
  • Henry: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Henry: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Henry: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • George Carlin: Duck was tired out. The cars had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three engines barred his way.
  • (Gordon, James and Henry wheesh steam with fury, causing Duck to get dazed)
  • James: Keep out!
  • Duck: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: I'm tired.
  • James: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the engines.
  • Gordon: We're tired of you. We like Diesel. We don't like you.
  • Henry: You tell tales about us to the cars.
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt came to stop the noise.
  • Gordon: Duck called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • James: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James.
  • Henry: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Duck?
  • George Carlin: Duck considered.
  • Duck: I only wish sir.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Duck: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: (clearing throat)
  • Gordon, James and Henry: He made cars laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the engines. Sir Topham Hatt recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Did you, Duck?
  • Duck: Certainly not, Sir. No steam engine will be as mean as that.
  • George Carlin: Diesel lurked up.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now, Diesel, you heard what Duck said.
  • Diesel: I can't understand it, Sir, to think that Duck of all engines. I'm dreadfully grieved, Sir, but know nothing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Diesel squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, Duck, but you must go to Edward's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Duck: As you wish, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Duck trundled sadly away, while Diesel smirked with triumph.

No Joke For James

  • George Carlin: James is a mixed traffic engine. He can pull both freight cars and coaches. He's proud of his smart red paint and so is his driver.
  • James' Driver: Everyone says you brighten up your day, James.
  • George Carlin: One morning, James whistled loudly at the other engines.
  • James: Look at me! I'm a smartest most useful engine on the line!
  • Thomas: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: We're all useful. Sir Topham Hatt says so and he's headed the whole railway.
  • Percy: You know what, James?
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • James: What?
  • George Carlin: Replied James.
  • Percy: You're getting all puffed out.
  • George Carlin: James huffed away. Later, he was still boasting.
  • James: I'm the pride of the line.
  • Gordon: I saw you're pulling freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: You're only a goods engine.
  • James: I've pull coaches too.
  • Gordon: Not as much as I do.
  • James: But Sir Topham Hatt has plans for me.
  • George Carlin: James was making this up but Gordon believe him.
  • Gordon: What plans?
  • James: Uh, wait and see. Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • James: Now what'll I do?
  • George Carlin: Thomas was shunting shiny new coaches.
  • Thomas: Good morning, James.
  • James: Are those coaches for me?
  • George Carlin: Asked James hopefully.
  • Thomas: No, these are for Gordon's Express. I'll fetch your freight cars next.
  • George Carlin: But James was going to play a trick on the other engines.
  • James: Actually, Thomas, I'm taking the coaches. Sir Topham Hatt ask me to tell you.
  • Thomas: What about the cars?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • James: Uh, give them to Gordon.
  • Thomas' Driver: Come on, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: Orders and orders.
  • George Carlin: So when James' driver returned, James was coupled to the coaches and he puffed away. Thomas returned with the freight cars. And a few minutes later, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Where's the express?
  • George Carlin: Thomas told him about James.
  • Thomas: And so here are your cars.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was very cross and so his driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: Wait'll Sir Topham Hatt heres about this.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile James was enjoying himself enormously.
  • James: What a clever plan! What a clever plan!
  • George Carlin: He chuffed. Then he saw Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Some jokes are funny, but not this one, James. You have caused confusion.
  • James: Yes Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will now stay in your shed until you are wanted.
  • George Carlin: The other engines teased James.
  • Gordon: I wonder who'd be pulling the express today?
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Henry: I expect it'll be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Henry.
  • Henry: James is stuck in the shed for being silly.
  • George Carlin: James felt sad. Next morning, he went back to work.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Good to see you out and about again.
  • James: I'm sorry I tricked you.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Are these my cars?
  • Thomas: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas kindly.
  • Thomas: They're please to have you back.
  • George Carlin: James set off to the harbour with a train of freight cars. He bustled about all day pushing and pulling them into place.
  • James' Driver: Time to go home now, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver at last.
  • James' Driver: No cars or passengers. Just we too.
  • George Carlin: But his driver was wrong.
  • Railway Inspector: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Railway Inspector: I have a meeting with Sir Topham Hatt and I mustn't be late. May I ride back with you?
  • James' Driver: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied James' driver. Then he whispered to James.
  • James' Driver: This gentleman is a railway inspector.
  • George Carlin: James was most impressed. He steamed along the line as smoothly and quickly as he could. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting on the platform and the railway inspector greeted him warmly.
  • Railway Inspector: This clever engine gave me a splendid ride. You must be proud of him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes indeed. Once again, you are a really useful engine.

Old Iron

  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again. After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigent.
  • Percy: Old iron!? Slow!?
  • Thomas: Why, Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward. Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.

Edward's Exploit

  • George Carlin: Bertie the Bus was giving some visitors the tour on the Island of Sodor. It was their last afternoon, and Edward was preparing to take them to meet Bill and Ben. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Henry: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • James: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked James.
  • Gordon: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Duck.
  • Duck: You're all jealous. Edward's better than any of you.
  • BoCo: You're right, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: Edward's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Edward: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward, as he finally puffed out of the station. Bill and Ben were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special.
  • (Bill and Ben take the visitors to their home)
  • George Carlin: Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Edward took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Edward. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Edward's wheels slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack...
  • (Snap!)
  • George Carlin: ...something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Edward?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned engine. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Edward: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Edward. Edward puffed and pulled his hardest. But his wheels kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Edward. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with freight cars.
  • Edward: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Edward: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Edward's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearily, but unbeaten, Edward steamed in. Henry was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Edward, his driver and fireman. Duck and BoCo saw to it that Edward was left in peace. Gordon and James remain respectfully silent.

Double Trouble

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the Island of Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine's blue paint sparkled in a sunshine as he puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: You look splendid.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only proper color for an engine.
  • Toby: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • Thomas: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only color for a really useful engine. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Percy said no more. He just grinned at Toby. Later, Thomas was resting when Percy arrived. A large hopper was loading his freight cars full of coal. Thomas was still being cheeky.
  • Thomas: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Thomas: Watch out with those silly cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the cars.
  • Thomas: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Thomas.
  • Thomas: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Thomas: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Percy was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Thomas' smart blue paint was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Percy: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Percy: You don't look really useful now, Thomas. You look really disgraceful.
  • Thomas: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Thomas that he wasn't it time for his next train. Toby had to take Annie and Clarabel.
  • Annie: Poor Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Annie to Clarabel. They were most upset. Thomas was grumpy in the shed that night. Toby thought it made a great joke, but Percy was cross with Thomas for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Percy: Fancy a really useful blue engine like Thomas becoming a disgrace to Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Percy bring his cars from the junction. The cars were heavy and Percy was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Percy found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Percy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: Help!
  • (Percy falls into the deep coal)
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Percy was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Thomas to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Thomas: Now Percy has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two engines made up their quarrel.
  • Percy: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: You do know that, don't you?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.
