  • (The 2004 version of Thomas Season 5 intro then follows and we begin Thomas and Gordon)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas is a tank engine who lives at the big station of the Island of Sodor. He's a cheeky little engine with six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler and a short stumpy dome. He's a fussy little engine too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big engines can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big engines can go on rest. Thomas thinks no engine works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Gordon the biggest and proudest engine of all. Thomas likes whistling rudely at him.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • Ringo Starr: One day after pulling the big express, Gordon had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Thomas came up in his cheeky way.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • Ringo Starr: And off he ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Gordon thought how he can back at Thomas. One morning, Thomas wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Thomas started.
  • Thomas: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Gordon was waiting.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Thomas: Hurry yourself.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Thomas. Gordon began making his plan.
  • Gordon: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: I will.
  • Ringo Starr: And almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Gordon reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Gordon: Get in quickly, please!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled. Thomas usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Gordon start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Thomas. Gordon's chance had come.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Gordon to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Thomas, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Gordon.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the coaches. Poor Thomas was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his wheels hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Thomas: I shall never be the same again.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly.
  • Thomas: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • Ringo Starr: At last, they stopped at the station. Thomas was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Gordon: Well, little Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Thomas couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink. He went home very slowly and was very careful afterwards never to be cheeky to Gordon again.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy and The Signal)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Percy: Peep peep! Hurry up, Gordon, the train's ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon thought he was late.
  • Percy: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Percy and showed him a train of dirty coal trucks. Gordon thought how he can pay Percy back for teasing him. Next it was James' turn.
  • Percy: Stay in the shed today, James. The Fat Controller will come and see you.
  • James: Ah!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought James.
  • James: The Fat Controller knows I'm a fine engine. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • Ringo Starr: James' driver and fireman could not make him move. The other engines grumbled dreadfully. They had to do James' work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, James. You can't stay here all day.
  • James: The Fat Controller told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • James: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • James: Oh, where's Percy?
  • Ringo Starr: Percy had wisely disappeared. When The Fat Controller came back, he did see James and Percy too. But engines wish he hadn't. One morning, Percy was careless.
  • Percy: I say, you engines, I'm to take some trucks to Thomas' junction. The Fat Controller chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful engine.
  • James: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled James. Gordon looked across to James. They were going to make a plan.
  • Gordon: James and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then i needn't say that to a really useful engine like you, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy felt flattered.
  • James: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in James.
  • James: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Percy: No thank you, James.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I know all about signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was a little worried.
  • Percy: I wonder what backing signals are.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Percy: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed crossly to his trucks and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Percy: Bother, it's a danger.
  • Ringo Starr: The signal moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Percy had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Percy: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing signals.
  • Driver: Come on, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Percy: But it's a backing signal.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy protested and told him about Gordon and James. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Percy: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • Ringo Starr: He was too late. Gordon saw everything. That night, the big engines talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Percy thought they were being very silly.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James and The Trouble With Trees)
  • Michael Angelis: Thomas the Tank Engine had been working in the coal yards all day. The little blue engine was covered in coal dust.
  • Thomas' Driver: We can't clean you up tonight, Thomas.
  • Michael Angelis: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: There's a problem with the hose pipe.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • Michael Angelis: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: A bath would make me feel much better. The others are sure to say i look silly.
  • Michael Angelis: But the engines were too busy arguing to notice Thomas. James was talking loudest of all.
  • James: I deserve a new coat of paint. The Fat Controller says i'm the pride of the line and...
  • Henry: Rubbish!
  • Michael Angelis: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: We're all the pride of the line.
  • Percy: It's been like this all day.
  • Michael Angelis: Confided Percy to Thomas.
  • Percy: James is getting a new coat of paint and won't stop boasting about it.
  • Thomas: Why, James! I'm the one who needs a new coat. Look at me.
  • James: I rather not.
  • Michael Angelis: Retorted James.
  • James: You're not a pleasant sight and wouldn't understand that needs of a really important engine.
  • Michael Angelis: Thomas was fuming. Next morning as James was being repainted, Henry had an accident.
  • (Crash)
  • James: If you can't push trucks properly, Henry, why not talk to a tree instead. You know how much you like the forest.
  • Henry: As a matter of fact, bossy boiler, The Fat Controller is inspecting the island for trees that have fallen too close to the line. He's worried that might cause trouble.
  • James: Pah!
  • Michael Angelis: Laughed James.
  • James: If I came upon a tree i just push it aside.
  • Henry: Really!?
  • Michael Angelis: Henry replied. Soon, James was showing off his paintwork.
  • James: Make way for an important engine.
  • Percy: You wouldn't feel important if one of those trees crashed on you. You feel hurt.
  • Michael Angelis: Reproached Percy.
  • James: Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!
  • Terence: You should be careful, James. Trees can be just as powerful as engines.
  • Michael Angelis: Adviced Terence.
  • James: Pah! Now excuse me, The Fat Controller needs me to pull the express.
  • Michael Angelis: And he huffed away. But James was wrong.
  • The Fat Controller: You must go to the yards and collect an important goods train James. It's heavy so be careful.
  • Michael Angelis: Said The Fat Controller.
  • James: But, sir, I've just been repainted. Can't Thomas and Percy do it? They're dirty and like working with trucks
  • The Fat Controller: Really useful engines don't argue.
  • Michael Angelis: So James didn't. By the time he arrived at the yards, the weather was changed for the worse.
  • Truck: Your color's nice, James. Pity about your face though.
  • Michael Angelis: Said a truck. James ignored them and set off. Soon they came to a hill and his driver knew they were in for a dificult time. An old tree close to the tracks was being blown by the strong winds and the rain had weakened the slope. All of a sudden, the tree moved.
  • James: Oh help!
  • Michael Angelis: Cried James.
  • James: Go away!
  • Michael Angelis: But of course, the tree couldn't. James tried to reverse away from the tree but his train was too heavy. Then he heard a whistle.
  • James' Driver: It's Thomas.
  • Michael Angelis: Called his driver. James felt embarrased and worried that Thomas would laugh at him, but Thomas didn't. He knew it was no time for teasing.
  • Thomas: Peep, peep! I'm ready!
  • Michael Angelis: Whistled Thomas.
  • James: So am I.
  • Michael Angelis: Replied James.
  • James: As ready as I'll ever be.
  • Michael Angelis: They were just in time.
  • (The tree lands on the ground with a loud wham!)
  • Michael Angelis: Later, James spoke to Thomas.
  • James: Percy and Terence were so right to warn me. Thank you for rescuing me, Thomas.
  • Thomas: Oh, that's all right. We engines have to pull together whatever the weather.
  • Michael Angelis: Just then, Edward bustled in.
  • Edward: The Fat Controller thinks you're both brave engines. Thomas, you're going to have a new coat of paint, and James, The Fat Controller says that tomorrow you'll pull the special express.
  • Michael Angelis: Everyone was very happy.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Something In The Air)
  • Michael Angelis: One day, Thomas was at the keyside of a small village. An early morning catch of fish were being loaded into his trucks. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up and...
  • Michael Angelis: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Michael Angelis: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Michael Angelis: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Michael Angelis: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, as they approach the lighthouse he saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Michael Angelis: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Michael Angelis: Said the Driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Michael Angelis: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Michael Angelis: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, i'll tell them to close the line.
  • Michael Angelis: Henry was waiting anxiously for Thomas' trucks.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: I can't help it, It's the fish!
  • Michael Angelis: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Ha! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my trucks hitched to my train.
  • Michael Angelis: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. There he was, steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What route is Henry taking tonight?
  • Michael Angelis: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But I told you! That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Michael Angelis: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Michael Angelis: The signalman answered the telephone, but he couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Michael Angelis: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. When he could, it was too late.
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Michael Angelis: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • The Fat Controller: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them.
  • Michael Angelis: Said The Fat Controller
  • The Fat Controller: You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Angelis: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him disdainfully.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Henry: Pah!
  • Michael Angelis: Hissed Henry, but there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Michael Angelis: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Michael Angelis: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Michael Angelis: Asked Henry nervously
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Michael Angelis: Replied Henry.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Pop Goes The Diesel)
  • Ringo Starr: Duck is very proud of being Great Western. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard too and makes everything ran like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The trucks and coaches behave well, the passengers even stopped grumbling. But the engines didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Duck: There are two ways of doing things.
  • Ringo Starr: Duck told them.
  • Duck: The Great Western way, or the wrong way. I'm Great Western and...
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Don't we know it!
  • Ringo Starr: They groaned. The engines were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. The Fat Controller introduce him.
  • The Fat Controller: Here is Diesel. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Duck.
  • Diesel: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Purred Diesel in an oily voice.
  • Diesel: Please to meet you, Duck. Is that James and Henry and Gordon too? I am delighted to meet such famous engines.
  • Ringo Starr: The silly engines were flattered.
  • Engines: He has very good manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They murmured.
  • Engines: We are pleased to have in our yard.
  • Ringo Starr: Duck had his doubts.
  • Duck: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. Diesel purred after him.
  • Diesel: Your worth Fat...
  • Duck: Sir Topham Hatt to you.
  • Ringo Starr: Ordered Duck. Diesel looked hurt.
  • Diesel: Your worthy Sir Topham Hatt thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We diesel don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Duck: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Duck.
  • Duck: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my trucks while I fetch Gordon's coaches.
  • Ringo Starr: Diesel delighted to show off, purred away. When Duck returned, Diesel was trying to take some trucks from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Diesel found them hard to move.
  • Diesel: Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Trucks: Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: The trucks groaned.
  • Trucks: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Duck watched with interest. Diesel lost patience.
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: He roared, and gave a great heave. The trucks jerked forward.
  • Trucks: Ohhh!
  • Ringo Starr: They screamed.
  • Trucks: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Diesel: Grrrr!
  • Duck: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Duck. Diesel recovered and try to push the trucks back, but they wouldn't move. Duck ran quietly around to collect the other trucks.
  • Duck: Thank you for arranging these, Diesel. I must go now.
  • Diesel: Don't you want this lot?
  • Duck: No thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Diesel gulped.
  • Diesel: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Duck: You never asked me. Besides.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Duck.
  • Duck: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Diesel: Grrrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Diesel had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the trucks were laughing and singing at him.
  • Trucks: Trucks are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Diesel, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong trucks out, Pop Goes The Diesel!
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Growled Diesel, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Diesel Does It Again)
  • Michael Angelis: Duck and Percy enjoyed their work in the harbour, pulling and pushing trucks full of cargo to and from the key. But one morning, the engines were exhausted. The harbour was busier than ever. The Fat Controller promised that another engine would be found to help them.
  • Percy: Huh. It's about time.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Percy.
  • Duck: I ached so much I can hardly get my wheels to move.
  • Michael Angelis: Agreed Duck. They waited for the engine to arrive. It came as a shock when he did.
  • Diesel: Good morning.
  • Michael Angelis: Squirmed Diesel in his oily voice. The two engines had not work with Diesel for a long time.
  • Duck: What are you doing here?
  • Michael Angelis: Gasped Duck.
  • Diesel: Your worth Fat...er, Sir Topham Hatt sent me. I hope you are please to see me again. I have to shunt some dreadful tiresome trucks.
  • Percy: Shunt where?
  • Michael Angelis: Said Percy suspiciously.
  • Diesel: Where? Why from here to there.
  • Michael Angelis: Purred Diesel.
  • Diesel: And then again from there to here. Easy, isn't it?
  • Michael Angelis: With that, Diesel as if to make himself clear bumped some trucks hard.
  • Trucks: Ooh!
  • Michael Angelis: Screamed the trucks.
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • Michael Angelis: Growled Diesel. Percy and Duck were horrified. They did not trust Diesel at all. They refuse to work and did not leave their shed. The Fat Controller was enjoying his tea and iced bun when the telephone rang.
  • The Fat Controller: So there's trouble in the harbour yard? I'll be there right away.
  • Michael Angelis: Diesel was working loudly and alone. Cargo lay on the key. Ships and passengers were delayed. Everyone was complaining about The Fat Controller's Railway. Percy and Duck were sulking in their shed.
  • The Fat Controller: What's all this?
  • Michael Angelis: Demanded The Fat Controller.
  • Percy: We're on strike, sir.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Percy.
  • Duck: Yes.
  • Michael Angelis: Added Duck.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but we don't work with Diesel, sir.
  • Michael Angelis: Then, in a quiet hurt voice, he added...
  • Duck: You said you sent him packing, sir.
  • The Fat Controller: I have to give Diesel a second chance. I'm trying to help by bringing Diesel here. Now you must help me he is the only engine available.
  • Michael Angelis: Percy and Duck went sadly back to work. Next day, things were no better. Diesel's driver did not put on his brakes on properly and Diesel started to move. He went bump straight into Percy. Percy had an awful fright!
  • Diesel: Wake up there, Percy.
  • Michael Angelis: Scowled Diesel.
  • Diesel: You have work to do.
  • Michael Angelis: He didn't even say he was sorry to Percy. Later, Diesel bumped the trucks so hard that the loads went everywhere.
  • Percy: What would The Fat Controller say?
  • Michael Angelis: Gasped Percy.
  • Duck: He won't like it.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Duck.
  • Diesel: So who's going to tell you I wonder? Two goody-goody tattletales like you I suppose?
  • Michael Angelis: Percy and Duck did not wanna be tattletales, so they said nothing. Diesel thinking he can getting away from his bad behavior was ruder than ever. Next day, he was shunting trucks full of China Clay. He banged the trucks hard into the buffers, but the buffers weren't secure. The silly trucks were sunked! The Fat Controller heard the news. The trucks were hoisted safely from the sea but the clay was lost. The Fat Controller spoke severely to Diesel.
  • The Fat Controller: The harbour master has tell me anything. Things weren't much better here before you arrived. I shall not be inviting you back. Now Duck and Percy, I hope you don't mind having handle the work by yourselves again.
  • Percy: Oh no, Sir.
  • Duck: Yes please, Sir.
  • Michael Angelis: Replied the engines. Whistling cheerfully, they puff back to work while Diesel sulk slowly away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bad Day At Castle Loch)
  • Michael Angelis: It was a beautiful day on the Island of Sodor. Donald and Douglas are Scottish twins. They enjoy working on The Fat Controller's railway. But sometimes, they longed for Scotland, their old home. One day, The Fat Controller called them to the docks.
  • The Fat Controller: Lord Callan's castle was finally reopening. There is to be a grand celebration tomorrow. I need you to take the banners, buntings and bagpipes to the castle. Harvey, you must load them straight away.
  • Harvey: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Angelis: Chuffed Harvey. The twins were excited. Going to Lord Callan's castle would be like going home again. Soon, Harvey had finished loading the freight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • Michael Angelis: Asked Percy.
  • Donald: Lord Callan's castle.
  • Michael Angelis: Donald proudly announced.
  • Harvey: By Castle Loch.
  • Percy: I'm glad I'm not going to Castle Loch.
  • Michael Angelis: Wheeshed Percy nervously.
  • Douglas: Scared the monster might get ya.
  • Michael Angelis: Teased Douglas.
  • Donald: You might.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Donald.
  • Douglas: There's no monster.
  • Donald: There is too.
  • Douglas: There is not.
  • Donald: It's too.
  • Douglas: It's not.
  • Donald: It's too.
  • Michael Angelis: Lord Callan's castle is in Misty Valley. Donald and Douglas were determined to get the important goods to the castle in time. They puffed proudly along the loch towards their destination.
  • Donald: There it is!
  • Michael Angelis: Cried Donald.
  • Douglas: We're almost there!
  • Michael Angelis: Shouted Douglas. But there was trouble ahead, trees had fallen across the line. Donald and Douglas stopped just in time. Then, suddenly, there was a loud crash. The break van had been hit by the landslide and come off the rails. They were stuck.
  • Donald's Driver: We could take the causeway.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Donald's Driver. Douglas' Driver knew the causeway was old and rickety.
  • Douglas' Driver: It's too dangerous.
  • Michael Angelis: He said. The twins were worried.
  • Donald: We'll never get to the castle now.
  • Michael Angelis: Chuffed Donald.
  • Donald's Driver: I'll call for help.
  • Tailor: Splendid outfit, sir.
  • Michael Angelis: The Fat Controller was trying on his present for Lord Callan when he heard the news.
  • The Fat Controller: Donald and Douglas trapped by the loch?
  • Michael Angelis: He said.
  • The Fat Controller: I'll send help as soon as i can.
  • Michael Angelis: But the hours passed. It grew dark and cold and still no help had come. Suddenly, the twins spotted something strange through the mist.
  • Donald: What's that!?
  • Michael Angelis: Called Donald.
  • Douglas: Is it the monster!?
  • Michael Angelis: Cried Douglas.
  • Donald: For sure it is.
  • Michael Angelis: Answered Donald.
  • Harvey: It's not a monster, it's us.
  • Michael Angelis: It was Harvey and the breakdown crane. Donald and Douglas were relieved. By morning, the lines were cleared. Donald and Douglas hurried off to the castle. Lord Callan's workers were waiting to unload the freight cars. Soon, the castle was decorated. The grand opening was a great success. Lord Callan was pleased.
  • Lord Callan: A splendid pair of engines.
  • The Fat Controller: And very useful.
  • Michael Angelis: Added The Fat Controller.
  • Donald and Douglas: Och aye!
  • Michael Angelis: Agreed the twins.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Peace and Quiet)
  • Henry: Hurry up, I'm a busy engine.
  • Michael Angelis: Huffed Henry. Goods arrive night and day at the docks. Sometimes, Henry and the other engines work so hard that their axles ache. The Fat Controller brought in a new engine to help with the heavy work load. He was long and had 10 drive wheels. He looked very strong.
  • The Fat Controller: This is Murdoch. He's going to be pulling on the main line.
  • Salty: Ahoy, Murdoch!
  • Michael Angelis: Shouted Salty.
  • Harvey: Welcome, Murdoch!
  • Michael Angelis: Called Harvey.
  • Thomas: You're the biggest engine I've ever seen.
  • Michael Angelis: Cried Thomas.
  • Murdoch: You're a chatty lot.
  • Michael Angelis: Murdoch said quietly. Soon, Murdoch was coupled to a long, long line of heavy trucks. His boiler strained, his wheels started to turn and the mighty engine chuffed away. Murdoch longed for some peace and quiet. But everywhere he went, it was noisy and crowded. At the end of the day, Murdoch was looking forward to a good night's rest. But Salty and Harvey were full of questions.
  • Harvey: What's the longest train you'v ever pulled?
  • Salty: Have you ever worked might say?
  • Harvey: Have you ever crashed?
  • Murdoch: Please.
  • Michael Angelis: Murdoch chuffed.
  • Murdoch: I want some peace and quiet and i don't want to share a shed with chatterboxes.
  • Harvey: No need to be rude.
  • Michael Angelis: Huffed Harvey.
  • Salty: We're only being friendly matey.
  • Michael Angelis: The next morning, Murdoch collected another long heavy train. This time, he chuffed into the beautiful countryside. It was splendid. At last he had some peace and quiet. Suddenly, his driver applied the brakes. There were sheep on the tracks.
  • Murdoch's Driver: The sheep escaped from that field.
  • Michael Angelis: Said the driver.
  • Murdoch's Driver: Through that broken fence.
  • Michael Angelis: The driver and the fireman tried to chase the sheep back. First this way and then that way. They tried everything, but nothing worked.
  • Murdoch's Fireman: We'll never move these sheep by ourselves.
  • Michael Angelis: Complained the fireman.
  • Murdoch's Driver: I'll go and phone for help.
  • Michael Angelis: Sighed the driver. Murdoch was very unhappy. The noisy sheep were spoiling his peace and quiet. The Fat Controller was enjoying afternoon tea when he got the call.
  • The Fat Controller: Sheep!?
  • Michael Angelis: He exclaimed loudly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll send Toby with the farmer inmediately.
  • Michael Angelis: The sheep were becoming noisier and noisier.
  • Murdoch: Please stop!
  • Michael Angelis: Groaned Murdoch.
  • Murdoch: I'd rather be back with the chatterbox engines.
  • Michael Angelis: Just then, Toby chuffed into view.
  • Murdoch: Toby!
  • Michael Angelis: Exclaimed Murdoch.
  • Murdoch: We're certainly glad to see you.
  • Michael Angelis: Before long the farmer and his dog went to work and the sheep were soon safely in their field and Murdoch was on his way again. That evening, Murdoch parked between Harvey and Salty. But Murdoch spoke first.
  • Murdoch: I'm sorry that I was cross.
  • Michael Angelis: He chuffed.
  • Murdoch: I'm very pleased to share a shed with you.
  • Harvey: And we're very pleased to have your company.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Harvey.
  • Salty: Ay wer are.
  • Michael Angelis: Added Salty.
  • Salty: It reminds me of a story.
  • Michael Angelis: Murdoch smiled. The sound of baa, baa, baa would have kept him awake. But a Salty story would send him happily to sleep.
