Transcript

  • (We open this CD with the Thomas Season 1-7 intro and the start of Edward Helps Out)
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wants strong engines like us.
  • Ringo Starr: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Edward.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Edward: Oh yes, please.
  • Ringo Starr: 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?
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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?
  • Ringo Starr: 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 very dirty freight train.
  • Gordon: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • Ringo Starr: Edward laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Gordon can't get up the hill.
  • Ringo Starr: The porter called to Edward's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Edward and push him please?
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The noisy freight cars hold an engine back so!
  • Ringo Starr: Edward's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Gordon: No use at all!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Edward's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: No good.
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Gordon.
  • Edward: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: 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 Henry's Special Coal)
  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Henry was feeling very sorry for himself. Sometimes he can pull trains, but sometimes he felt he had no strength at all.
  • Henry: I suffer dreadfully and no one cares.
  • James: Rubbish, Henry!
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted James.
  • James: You don't work hard enough!
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt spoke to him too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's wrong with you, Henry? You have lots of new parts and new paint too, but they've done you no good. If we can't make you better, we must get another engine instead of you to do the work.
  • Ringo Starr: This made Henry, his driver and fireman very sad. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting when Henry came to the platform. He had taken off his hat and coat and put on overalls. Henry managed to start but his fireman was not satisfied.
  • Henry's Fireman: Henry is a bad steamer.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry's Fireman: I built up his fire, but it doesn't give enough heat.
  • Ringo Starr: Henry tried very hard, but it was no good. He didn't have enough steam, and came to a stop outside Edward's station.
  • Henry: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Henry.
  • Henry: I shall have to go away! Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: All he could do is to go slowly onto a siding, and Edward took charge of the train. Sir Topham Hatt and the Fireman went on discussing Henry's troubles.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What do you think is wrong, fireman?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry's Fireman: Excuse me, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: He answered.
  • Henry's Fireman: But the fact is the coal was wrong. We've had a poor lot lately, and today's it's worse. The other engines can manage. They had big fireboxes. Henry's is small and can't make the heat. With Welsh coal, he'd be a different engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's expensive.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry: But Henry must have a fair chance. James shall go and fetch them.
  • Ringo Starr: When the Welsh coal came, Henry's Driver and Fireman were excited.
  • Henry's Driver and Fireman: Now we'll show 'em, Henry old fellow.
  • Ringo Starr: They carefully made his fire, putting large lumps of coal like a wall round the outside, then the glowing middle part was covered in smaller lumps.
  • Henry: You're spoiling my fire.
  • Ringo Starr: Complained Henry.
  • Henry's Fireman: Wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the fireman.
  • Henry's Fireman: We'll have a roaring fire just when we wanted.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman was right. When Henry reach the platform, the water was boiling nicely, and he had to let off steam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: How are you, Henry?
  • Henry: Peep, peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Henry.
  • Henry: I feel fine!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Have you a good fire, driver?
  • Henry's Driver: Never better, sir, and plenty of steam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No record breaking.
  • Ringo Starr: Warned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't push him too hard.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry won't need pushing, sir. I'll have to hold him back.
  • Ringo Starr: Henry had a lovely day. He had never felt so well of his life. He wanted to go fast, but his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Henry's Driver: Steady old fellow.
  • Ringo Starr: He would say.
  • Henry's Driver: There's plenty of time.
  • Ringo Starr: They arrived early at the station. Thomas puffed in.
  • Henry: Where have you been, lazybones?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Henry.
  • Henry: Oh, I can't wait for dawdling tank engines like you. Goodbye.
  • Thomas: Whoosh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas to Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Have you ever seen anything like it?
  • Ringo Starr: Both Annie and Clarabel agreed that they never had.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Flying Kipper)
  • Ringo Starr: One winter evening, Henry's driver said...
  • Henry's Driver: We'll be out early tomorrow. We've got to take the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Gordon, but I think if we pull the Kipper nicely, Sir Topham Hatt will let us pull the express. The special coal they gave you is working well.
  • Henry: Hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Henry.
  • Henry: That will be lovely.
  • Ringo Starr: All kinds of ships use the harbour at the big station by the sea. There are passenger ships, cargo ships and fishing boats also come here. They unload their fish on the key. Some of them goes the shops in the town, and the rest in a special train to other places far away. This is the train the railwaymen called the Flying Kipper. Henry was ready at 5:00. There was snow and frost. Men hustled and shouted loading up the crates of fish. The last door banged, the guard showed his green lamp, and the Flying Kipper was ready to go.
  • Henry: Come on, come on, don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Henry to the freight cars. The cars shuttered and groaned.
  • Cars: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, all right, all right!
  • Henry: That is better, that is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Henry. Cloud of smoke and steam poured from his funnel into the cold air, and the fire's light shown brightly.
  • Henry: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Panted Henry. They were going well. The light grew better, signal light shown green as they passed. Then, a yellow signal appeard ahead. His driver prepared to stop, but the home signal was down.
  • Henry's Driver: All clear, Henry. Away we go.
  • Ringo Starr: They couldn't know the switches from the main line to a siding were frozen, and a home signal should have been set a danger, but snow had forced it down. A freight train was waited in a siding to let the Flying Kipper past, and a Driver and Fireman were drinking cocoa in the caboose.
  • Conductor: The Kipper is due.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the conductor.
  • Fireman: Who cares?
  • Ringo Starr: Said the Fireman.
  • Fireman: This is good cocoa.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver got up.
  • Driver: Come on, fireman, back to our engine.
  • Ringo Starr: They got out just in time.
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: Henry's driver and fireman had jumped clear before the crash, but Henry lay dazed and surprised. Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Henry: The signal was down, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up, Henry. It wasn't your fault. Ice and snow cause the accident. I'm sending you to Crewe, a fine place for sick engines. They'll give you your new shape and a larger firebox. You'll feel a different engine, and won't need special coal anymore. Won't that be nice?
  • Henry: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Henry doubtfully. Henry liked being a Crewe, but was glad to come home. A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers.
  • Henry: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • Henry: Thank you very much!
  • Ringo Starr: I am sorry to say that a lot of little children were often late for school, because they waited to see Henry go by. They often see him pulling the express. He does it so well that Gordon is jealous. But that's another story.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Whistles and Sneezes)
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off to crewe, 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • Ringo Starr: Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Henry.
  • Henry: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon. But Gordon never whistles like that.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place. That night, Gordon slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • Ringo Starr: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • Ringo Starr: Hummed his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Henry: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • Henry: Ohh.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Sobbed the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • Ringo Starr: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Henry: Yes, yes.
  • Henry's Driver: Well then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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?
  • Ringo Starr: Henry felt more stuffed up. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Henry: Ah-choo, shoo.
  • (Henry sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
