Narrator: "One day, Lady was at the junction, when Emily shuffled in with some fright cars."

Lady: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Remarked Lady."

Lady: "What a funny smell.

Can you smell a smell?"

Bill: "I can't smell a smell."

Narrator: "Said Bill."

Lady: "A funny musty sort of smell."

Narrator: "Said Lady."

Emily: "No one noticed it till' you did."

Narrator: "Grunted Emily."

Emily: "It must be yours."

Narrator: "Not long ago, she had fallen in a dirty ditch. Lady enjoyed teasing her about it."

Lady: "Bill, Ben, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater."

Narrator: "Before Emily could anwser, Lady puffed away.

Bill and Ben could hardly believe their ears."

Bill and Ben: "She's dreadfully, I feel quite ashamed. I feel quite ashamed, she's dreadfully rude."

Narrator: "And to Lady, they said,"

Bill and Ben: "You mustn't be rude, you make us ashamed."

Narrator: "But Lady didn't care a bit."

Lady: "That was funny. That was funny."

Narrator: She chuckled. She felt very pleased with herself.

Bill and Ben were deeply shock. They had great respect for Emily the Big Engine.

Lady left the twins at the station, and went off to a mine for some cars.

Long ago, miners digging for lead had made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars, but not the weight of engines. A large notice warns them not to enter the area.

Danger! Engines must not pass this board."

Lady: "Silly old board."

Narrator: "Thought Lady.

She had often tried to pass it, but had never succeeded, but this morning, she made a plan.

The fireman went to throw the switch."

Lady: "Now for my plane."

Narrator: "Thought Lady.

Bumping the fright cars fiercely, she jerked her driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding."

Lady's Driver: "Come back!"

Narrator: "Yelled her driver."

Lady: "Fire and smoke!"

Narrator: "Said Lady."

Lady: "I'm sunk!"

Narrator: "And she was."

Lady: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "She said."

Lady: "I'am a silly engine."

Lady Hatt: "And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!"

Narrator: "Said Lady Hatt."

Lady: "Please get me out, I won't do it again!"

Lady Hatt: "I'm not sure. We can't left you out with the crane. The ground's not firm enough.

Hmmm. Let me see. I wonder if Emily could pull you out."

Lady: "Yes, ma'am."

Narrator: "Said Lady, but she didn't want to meet Emily just yet."

Emily: "Down a mine, is she, he he he!"

Narrator: "Laughed Emily."

Emily: "What a joke!

Poop Poop, Little Lady, we'll have you out in a couple of puffs!"

Narrator: "Strong cables were fastened between the two engines."

Lady Hatt: "Are you ready?


Narrator: "It was a lot harder then they all throught, but at last, Lady was free."

Lady: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: "Said Lady."

Emily: "That's all right, Lady. You've made me laugh."

Narrator: "Said Emily."

Emily: "I'm disgrace."

Lady: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Lady."

Emily: "Why so you are, Lady. Shall we form an alliance? You help me, and I'll help you."

Lady: "Right you are!"

Narrator: "Agreed Lady."

Emily: "Good, that's settled."

Narrator: "Grumbled Emily.

And buffer to buffer, the allies puffed home."
