  • George Carlin: One day, Edward was in the shed where he live with the other engines. They were all bigger than Edward and boasted about it.
  • Gordon: The driver won't choose you again.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wants strong engines like us.
  • George Carlin: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Edward.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Edward: Oh yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward. So they lit his fire, made lots of steam and Edward puff away. The other engines were very cross of being left behind. Edward worked hard all day. The coaches thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased.
  • Edward: I'm going out again tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Edward told the other engines that night.
  • Edward: What do you think at that?
  • George Carlin: But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy that he fell asleep at once. Next morning, Edward woke up to find nothing had change. Gordon was still boasting.
  • Gordon: You watch me, little Edward, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you. Goodbye, little Edward. Look out for me this afternoon.
  • George Carlin: Edward went off to do some shunting. He like shunting. It was fun playing with freight cars. He would come out quietly and gave them a push. Then he would stop, and the silly freight cars will go bump into the each other.
  • Cars: Oh!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Cars: Whatever is happening?
  • George Carlin: Edward played till there were no more freight cars. Then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. Gordon was very cross. Instead of pulling shiny new coaches, he was pulling a dirty freight train.
  • Gordon: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Gordon can't get up the hill.
  • George Carlin: The porter called to Edward's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Edward and push him please?
  • George Carlin: They found Gordon halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severly.
  • Driver: You're not trying.
  • Gordon: I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The noisy freight cars hold an engine back so!
  • George Carlin: Edward's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Gordon: No use at all!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: No good.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Gordon: I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Edward: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. Edward pushed and puffed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Gordon found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Gordon: I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: He said proudly. He forgot all about kind Edward and didn't say thank you. Edward was left out of breath and far behind, but he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink and the driver said.
  • Driver: I'll get out my paint tomorrow, and give you your beautiful coat of blue with red stripes, then you'll be the smartest engine in the shed.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Proud Day For James)
  • George Carlin: One night, Henry and Gordon were alone with James. Altough Sir Topham Hatt was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other engines will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Henry: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble James?
  • George Carlin: They would tease. James tried to get back by talking about Henry who got shut up in a tunnel and Gordon who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Gordon: You talk too much little James.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: A fine strong engine like me has something to talk about. I'm the only engine who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two engines. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that the signalman sets the switches to make the engines run on the right track. But Gordon was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Gordon: Wake up, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon next morning.
  • Gordon: It's time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • George Carlin: James went to get Gordon's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • James: I wish I was going with you.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • George Carlin: Gordon with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Sir Topham Hatt was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Gordon started.
  • Gordon: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • George Carlin: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Gordon: Poop poop poop poop poop! Goodbye, little James, see you tomorrow!
  • George Carlin: James watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some freight cars into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. James had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Gordon trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • James: Hello, Gordon. Is it tomorrow?
  • George Carlin: Gordon didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • James: Did you lose your weight, Gordon?
  • Gordon: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • James: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • George Carlin: Said James. All the passengers were shouting at the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon can't do it. Will you pull it for us, James?
  • James: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • George Carlin: So James was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do your best, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches.
  • James: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to James and Sir Topham Hatt was very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done. Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • James: Yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Answered James. Next day when James came by, Gordon was pushing freight cars.
  • Gordon: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Gordon: I'm teaching these cars manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • George Carlin: And he gave his cars a bump. James and Gordon are now good friends. James sometimes takes the express to give Gordon a rest. Gordon never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of freight cars.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Diseasel)
  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben are tank engine twins. Each has four wheels, a tiny chimney and dome and a small squat cab. Their freight cars are filled with China Clay. It is needed for pottery, paper, paint and many other things. The twins are now kept busy pushing and pulling the cars for engines on the main line and for ships in the harbor. One morning, they arranged some cars and went away for more.
  • (The Freight cars disappeared)
  • George Carlin: They returned to find them all gone. The Twins were most surprised. Their drivers examined a patch of oil.
  • Drivers: That's Diesel.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Bill: It's a what'll?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: A diseasel, I think.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Ben: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Bill: Coughs and sneezles spread diseaels.
  • Ben: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the diseasel came.
  • Bill: It isn't!
  • Ben: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben were horrified.
  • Bill: But the diseasel will magic us away like the freight cars.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • George Carlin: Replied their drivers.
  • Drivers: We're more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know you're twins. So we'll take away your names and numbers and then this is what we'll do.
  • George Carlin: Puffing hard, the twins set off on their journey to find the diesel. They were looking forward to playing tricks on him. Creeping into the yard, they found the diesel on a siding with missing cars. Ben hid behind, but Bill went bodly alongside.
  • (Bill passes the freight cars and stops next to BoCo)
  • George Carlin: The diesel looked up.
  • BoCo: Do you mind?
  • Bill: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I do. I want my cars back.
  • BoCo: These are mine.
  • George Carlin: Said the diesel.
  • BoCo: Go away.
  • George Carlin: Bill pretended not to be frightened.
  • Bill: You're a big bully.
  • George Carlin: He whimpered.
  • Bill: You'll be sorry.
  • George Carlin: He ran back and hid behind the cars on the other side. Ben now came forward.
  • Ben: Car stealer!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Ben. He ran away too. Bill took his place.
  • (Bill and Ben begin to taunt BoCo several times)
  • George Carlin: This went on and on till the diesel eyes nearly popped out.
  • BoCo: Stop! You're making me giddy.
  • George Carlin: The two engines gazed at him.
  • BoCo: Are there two of you?
  • Bill: Yes, we're twins.
  • BoCo: I might have known it.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Edward bustled up.
  • Edward: Bill and Ben, why are you playing here?
  • Bill: We're not playing.
  • George Carlin: Protested Bill.
  • Ben: We're rescuing our cars.
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Ben.
  • Ben: Even you don't take our cars without asking, but this diseasel did.
  • Edward: There's no cause to be rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward severly.
  • Edward: This engine is a Metropolitan Vickers, diesel electric type 2.
  • George Carlin: The twins were most impressed.
  • Bill: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • BoCo: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: The diesel smiled.
  • BoCo: Call me BoCo. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the cars.
  • Edward: That's all right then.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Now off you go, Bill and Ben. Fetch BoCo's cars, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • George Carlin: He said to BoCo.
  • Edward: But they're mattening at times.
  • George Carlin: BoCo chuckled.
  • BoCo: Mattening...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • BoCo: ...is the word.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Terence The Tractor)
  • George Carlin: Autumn had come to the Island of Sodor. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth and an tractor was hard at work as Thomas puff along. Later Thomas saw the tractor close by.
  • Terence: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said the tractor.
  • Terence: I'm Terence, I'm plowing.
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas, I'm pulling a train. What ugly wheels you got.
  • Terence: They're not ugly, they're caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Said Terence.
  • Terence: I can go anywhere. I don't need rails.
  • Thomas: I don't want to go anywhere.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I like my rails, thank you.
  • George Carlin: Winter came with dark clouds full of snow.
  • Driver: I don't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us.
  • Thomas: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Soft stuff, nothing to it.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed on feeling cold but confident. They finished their journey safely but by now the country was covered.
  • Driver: You need your snowplough for the next journey, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Huh! Snow is silly soft stuff it won't stop me.
  • George Carlin: The snowplough was heavy and uncomfortable and made Thomas cross. He shook it and he banged it and when they got back it was so damaged that the driver had to take it off.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Thomas. Next morning, Thomas' driver and fireman came early and worked hard to mend the snowplough, but they couldn't make it fit. Thomas was pleased.
  • Thomas: I shan't have to wear it, I shan't have to wear it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Annie and Clarabel. But they were rather worried.
  • Annie and Clarabel: I hope it's all right, I hope it's all right.
  • George Carlin: They whispered to each other. The driver was worried too.
  • Driver: It's not bad here.
  • George Carlin: He said to the fireman.
  • Driver: But it's sure to be deep in the valley.
  • Thomas: Silly soft stuff.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I didn't need that stupid old thing yesterday and i shan't today. Snow can't stop me.
  • George Carlin: He rushed into a tunnel thinking how clever he was. But there was trouble ahead.
  • (Crash)
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm stuck.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Driver: Back, Thomas, back.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Thomas tried but his wheels spun and he couldn't move. The conductor went back for help while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slipped down until Thomas was nearly buried.
  • Thomas: Oh, my wheels and coupling rods. I shall have to stop here till I'm frozen. What a silly engine I am.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas began to cry. At last the bus came to rescue the passengers. And then who should come to Thomas's rescue but Terence. Snow never worries him.
  • (Terence hooks up to Clarabel and pulls her and Annie out of the snow)
  • George Carlin: He pulled the empty coaches away, then came back for Thomas. Thomas' wheels were clear but still spun when he tried to move. Terence tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged and at last dragged Thomas clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Terence goes away into the tunnel with Thomas following him)
  • Thomas: Oh, thank you, Terence. Your caterpillars are splendid.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Driver: I hope you'll be sensible now, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas and he puffed slowly away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Saved From Scrap)
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt works his engines hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Edward: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Edward called to Thomas.
  • Thomas: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas cheekily. Thomas was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into cars and Edward pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Edward in the yard. It was a traction engine.
  • Edward: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Trevor: I'm Trevor. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Edward: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Trevor: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new, but my owner says I'm old fashioned.
  • George Carlin: Edward snorted.
  • Edward: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm a useful engine. What work did you do?
  • Trevor: My owner will send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • George Carlin: Trevor shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Trevor: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Edward set off for the station.
  • Edward: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Trevor, i must.
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who liked engines. But strangely none of them would have room for a traction engine at home.
  • Edward: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then...
  • Edward: Peep! Peep! Why didn't i think of him before.
  • George Carlin: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Vicar: Hello, Edward. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a traction engine in the scrapyard, Vicar. He'll be broken up next week. Jem Cole says he never drove a better engine.
  • Edward: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Vicar: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied the Vicar. Jem Cole came on saturday.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's comin to see you, Trevor. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Trevor: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Trevor?
  • Jem Cole: He will when i lit your fire and clean you up.
  • George Carlin: The Vicar and his two boys arrived that evening. Trevor hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Vicar: Show your paces, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said the Vicar. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Vicar: I've got him cheap, Jem, cheap.
  • Jem Cole: Did ye hear that Trevor?
  • George Carlin: Cried Jem.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Trevor: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Trevor. Now Trevor's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Edward every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Trevor likes his work but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers round the orchard giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Trevor: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin A New Friend For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine enjoys living in the Vicarage Orchard. Edward came to see him every day, but sometimes Trevor didn't have enough work to do.
  • Trevor: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Trevor: And i do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Edward: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Edward.
  • Edward: Sir Topham Hatt has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Thomas today.
  • Trevor: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Trevor happily.
  • Trevor: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Edward: Hello, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: This is Trevor a friend of mine. He's a traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Thomas eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Thomas: A what engine?
  • Trevor: A traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Explained Trevor.
  • Trevor: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Sir Topham Hatt has a job for me.
  • Thomas: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Trevor's car to Thomas' train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Trevor: I'm glad Sir Topham Hatt needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Trevor.
  • Trevor: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although i can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Thomas: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Trevor: I'm a traction engine. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Cars had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' Driver.
  • Driver: They are escential. Trevor, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Trevor: Just the sort of job i like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: Now you'll see, Thomas. I'll soon show you what traction engines can do.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Trevor: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Thomas brought Annie and Clarabel to visit him. Thomas was most impressed.
  • Thomas: Now i understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Trevor gave them rides to all the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Annie: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Annie.
  • Clarabel: He reminds me of Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Added Clarabel. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Trevor to go. Thomas pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Trevor's eye. Thomas pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Trevor happy.
  • Thomas: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Thomas: The Vicar will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Trevor: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor. That evening, Trevor stood remembering his new friend Thomas, the harbour, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Whistles and Sneezes)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful. And there's another thing: Henry whistles too much. No respectable engine ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • George Carlin: Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Henry.
  • (We hear a screeching noise)
  • Henry: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon. But Gordon never whistles like that.
  • George Carlin: It was Gordon. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Henry and he didn't look at Edward. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Edward: Well.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: And he told Edward what Gordon had said. Meanwhile, Gordon screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone covered their ears. Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take him away!
  • George Carlin: He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place.
  • (Two fitters fix Gordon's whistle with progress)
  • George Carlin: That night, Gordon slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • George Carlin: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • George Carlin: Hummed his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Henry: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • (The boys smash the coaches' windows with stones)
  • Henry: Ohh.
  • George Carlin: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass, they've broken our glass.
  • George Carlin: Cried the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • George Carlin: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Henry: Yes, yes.
  • Henry's Driver: Well then.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • George Carlin: Lots of people were at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry has plenty of ashes.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Henry's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • George Carlin: Henry felt more stuffed up. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Henry: Ah-choo!
  • (Henry sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver. Henry went home, hoping that next time he saw Gordon and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy Takes The Plunge)
  • George Carlin: One day, Henry wanted a rest, but Percy was talking to some engines. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Thomas.
  • Percy: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bill: Oh, Percy, you are brave.
  • Percy: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to an engine with determination.
  • Ben: Tell us more, Percy.
  • Henry: What are you engines doing here?
  • George Carlin: Hissed Henry.
  • Henry: This shed is for Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Go away. Silly things.
  • George Carlin: Henry snorted.
  • Percy: They're not silly.
  • George Carlin: Percy had been enjoying himself.
  • Henry: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to an engine with determination. Huh.
  • Percy: Anyway.
  • George Carlin: Said cheeky Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • George Carlin: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Percy: Once an engine attached to a train, was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Henry: No one ever lets me forget the time i wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry. Thomas was looking at the board on the key.
  • Thomas: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Thomas: That's orders.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Thomas: Danger means falling down something.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Percy: I can't see a mine.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Percy: Stupid board.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the cars.
  • Percy: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • George Carlin: The cars had never asked to bump an engine before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Percy: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the cars. Percy thought they were helping.
  • Percy: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the cars will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled, and bumped Percy's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Said Percy, sliding pass the board. Percy was frantic.
  • Percy: That's enough!
  • George Carlin: Percy was sunked.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a very disobeident engine.
  • George Carlin: Percy knew that voice.
  • Percy: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Percy, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Percy: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Percy. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Henry's freight train.
  • Henry: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: Did you like the water?
  • Percy: No.
  • Henry: I am surprised. You need more determination, Percy. Water's nothing to an engine with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • George Carlin: Percy is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.
