Narrator: It was a busy day on Sodor and the engines are working hard. One day Sir Topham Hatt came to see the engines.

Sir Topham Hatt: The steel bridge needs repair. So I'm making a weight limit to cross it for a while. Thomas and Percy are alright but Emily, you're to heavy. How would you like to work with Duck on his branchline?

Emily: Can Jennifer and Martha come?

Narrator: The fat controller shooked his head.

Sir Topham Hatt: They'll be needed here I'm afraid. Thomas can't carry passengers on his own.

Narrator: Percy promised to look after Jennifer and Martha. They felt sorry Emily had to go. Duck took her to see the small railway. He introduced Emily to Rex, Frank, Jock, Bert, and Mike.

Mike: Oh dear, not another big engine.

Jock: First Duck, Then Donald and Douglas and now -

Mike: Don't forget Oliver, he came here a while ago.
Narrator: They chuckled remembering.

Narrator: Emily let off steam igdignitly.

Emily: (whistles angerly) Let me tell you 2-!

Mr. Fergus Duncan: That's enough, you lot!

Narrator: Mike and Jock knew that voice. The Small Controller stood in front of them.

Mr. Fergus Duncan: Rex, I need you to load Emily's ballast trucks.

Rex: I say, Bert. You, Frank, Duck and I are the only sensible engines here.

Bert: I know what you mean, Rex.

Duck: They're just being silly engines.

Narrator: There was a crossing near the Arlesdale railway and there were no gates. A lorry full of paint was crossing it but it broke down.

Lorry driver: (angerly) Oh great. (shuts door) Perfect what a place to breakdown.

Narrator: Emily was coming but not to fast. She tried to stop but she couldn't. The lorry driver took cover and the paint flew high into the air. The paint landed on Emily.

Emily: Ugh!

Narrator: Emily was covered with rainbow colors.

Emily's driver: you remind me of a rainbow engine. Come on, let's clean you up.

Narrator: The heat from the boiler dried the paint. Duck took her trucks. Emily went back to the Arlesdale railway to be cleaned.

Jock: Hello Mike, what's this?

Mike: Must be a new engine.

Narrator: Jock looked at the arrival carefully.

Jock: No Mike, it's Emily but she doesn't think our color is beautiful.

Narrator: Then they heard a grinding noise.

Jock: Are your joints stiff Mike?

Narrator: It wasn't Mike's joints. It was Emily nashing her teeth. Then Rex and Bert peeped into the yard.

Rex: You remind me when Mike and I were green and they kept calling me Mike.

Mike: You, You bas- !

Frank: Don't say it Mike.

Narrator: Emily's driver showed Emily in a mirror.

Emily: Oh my, no wonder they call me Emily the beautiful engine.

Narrator: Then everybody laughed.
