AT NIGHT WHEN THE OTHER ENGINES ARE IN THEIR SHEDS. YOU CAN STILL HEAR THE FARAWAY CALL OF AN ENGINE'S WHISTLE AND THE CLICKETY-CLACK OF TRAIN WHEELS TUNNINS. THIS IS THE SOUND OF THE MAIL TRAIN. ONE TRAIN IS PULLED BY THINGS AND THE OTHER BY OLIVER... AS THE LOADS AND TOO HEAVY FOR ONE ENGINE TO DO THE WORK ALONE. THE MAIL IS LOADED INTO FRIGHT CARS AT THE HARBORS. AND THE ENGINES PULL THEIR TRAINS THROUGH THE SILENT STATIONS. . . DELIVERING THEIR PRECIOUS LOADS. ON A CLEAR NIGHT. A BIG SHINY MOON BRIGHTENS THEIR JOURNEY. BUT OFTEN DUCK AND OLIVER CAN'T EVEN SEE THE STARS. BUT WHATEVER THE WEATHER. LAFETS ALONG THE TRACK ALWATS LIGHT THEIR WAY. ONE NIGHT, OLIVER WAS WATIONG AT THE JUNCTION. THE MAIL LINE TRAIN WAS LATE. AT LAST FLYING SCOSTMAN ARRIVED. SORRY, HE PUFFED. THE MAIL BOAT FROM THEBEAINLAND WAS DELAYED. COME ON, OLIVER, SAID HIS DRIVER. LET'S MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME, OLIVER PUFFED ALONG AS QUICKLY AS HE COULD. BUT THE SUN WAS ALREADY RISING AS HE FINISHED HIS WORK. NIVER MINE, THOUGHT OLIVER. IT'S NICE TO BE UP AND ABOUT WHEN IT'S. . . THE START OF A NEW DAY AND THERE'S NO ONE ELSE AROUND. OLIVER WAS NOT ALONE FOR LONG. BOTHER, SAID OLIVER. IT'S THAT DIZZY THING JERMEY. GOOD MORNING. WHIRRED JERMEY. I ALWAYS SAID RAILWAYS WERE OUT OF DATE. BUT YOU'RE SO SLOW WITH THE MAIL. YOU SHOULD GIVE EVERYONE THEIR STAMPS BACK. OLIVER WAS TOO TIRED TO EXPLAIN. BIRDBRAIN. HE MUTTERED. GOOD MORNING, OLIVER, CALLED THOMAS. YOU'RE UP EARLY THIS MORNING. NO, YOU'RE WRONG. SIGHED OLIVER. I'M BACK. TIRED AND LATE. HE ROLLED INTO THE SHED AND FELL ASLEEP. . . ALMOST BEFORE HIS BUFFERS TOUCHED THE BAR. HID BRIVER BECIDED TO SET OFF EARLY THAT EVENING. DUCK WAS WATING AT THE STATION. THAT SHINING I HAVE A CHANE TO SPEAK TO YOU. BRIVER SAYS THAT THE PERGON IN CHANGE OF THE MAIL. . . HAS COMPLAINED TO JEM COLE ABOUT THE DELAY LAST NIGHT. BUT THAT WASN'T MY FAULT. REPLIED OLIVER. I KNOW, SAID DUCK. AND SO DOES JEM COLE. BUT THIS PERGON WOLDEN'T LISTEN. TONIGHT WE'LL JUST HAVE TO BE QUICKER THAN EVER BEFORE. THE ENGINES WERE JUST LEWINS WHEN THEY HEARD A FAMILAR BUZZING. I SAY. YOU TWO. THERE'S NEMS FLYING ABOUT. WHERE ? PUFFED OLIVER, CHANGLY. ALL OVER THE PLACE. THEY'RE GOING TO SCRAP THE MAIL TRAIN AND URE ME INSTED. WINDS WORK WONDERS. YOU KNOW ALWAYS. AULSISH. HUFFED DUCK. THAT NIGHT. EVERYTING RAN LIKE CLOCKWORK. DUCK AND OLIVER STEANED THROUGH THE STATIONS. . . MARKING GOOD TIME EVERYWHERE THEY WENT. AT A STATION, DUCK NOTICED A MAN LOOKING COLD AND WORRIED. HE HAD MISHED HIS TRAIN HOME. WE CAN GIVE YOU A RIDE, SAID DUCK'S DRIVER. BUT IT WILL BE RATHER UNCOMFORTABLE. THANK YOU, SAID THE MAN. ANYTHING'S BETTER THAN SITTING HERE. THE NEXT AFTERNOON, OLIVER PASSED THE AIRFIELD AND SAW JEREMY. HELLO. LAZY WINGS. ARE YOU TOO TIRED TO FLY TODAY? THE WIND'S TOO STRONG. GRUMBLED JERMEY. I'VE BEEN GROUNDED. YOU NEED RAILS! LAUGHED OLIVER. THEY WORK WONDERS, YOU KNOW. ALWAYS. THAT NIGHT, JEM COLE SHOWED THE TWO ENGINES A LETTER. IT WAS FROM THE MAN WHO MISSED HIS TRAIN. HE THINKS YOU ARE BOTH SPLENDED. AND EVERYONE SAYS THAT THE MAIL TRAIN IS THE PRIDE OF THE LINE.
