Thomas Gets Bumped

  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Thomas the Tank Engine puffs along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Thomas coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Thomas was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Percy the Green Engine was waiting, too.
  • Percy: "Hurry up, Thomas."
  • George Carlin: "Called Percy when the signal dropped."
  • Percy: "If you're late, Sir Topham Hatt might get a new engine to replace you."
  • Thomas: "He would never do that!"
  • George Carlin: "Thought Thomas, but he was worried. Next day, Thomas hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Thomas saw some children. They were waving, too."
  • Thomas: "Something must be wrong."
  • George Carlin: "Thought Thomas."
  • Thomas: "This station's for goods, not passengers."
  • Children: "Help, Thomas, help! We're glad to see you."
  • George Carlin: "Called the children."
  • Children: "Please, will you take us home?"
  • George Carlin: "The stationmaster explained to Thomas' driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Thomas waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Bertie was waiting to take them home. When Thomas finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Sir Topham Hatt might be cross with him."
  • Percy: "I warned Thomas."
  • George Carlin: "Puffed Percy to James."
  • Percy: "He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now."
  • George Carlin: "But next morning, when Thomas pick up his passengers, Sir Topham Hatt was nowhere to be seen."
  • Thomas: "Thank goodness."
  • George Carlin: "Sighed Thomas. Thomas knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track."
  • Thomas' Driver: "Careful, Thomas!"
  • George Carlin: "Called his driver. But it was too late."
  • Thomas' Driver: "That's done it!"
  • George Carlin: "Said his driver."
  • Thomas' Driver: "We shan't get any further today!"
  • Thomas: "But what about my passengers?"
  • George Carlin: "Asked Thomas."
  • Thomas' Driver: "Don't worry, they'll be looked after."
  • George Carlin: "Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Thomas had to shunt freight cars in the yard. Bertie came to see him."
  • Bertie: "I understand you need my help again."
  • Thomas: "Yes, Bertie."
  • George Carlin: "Replied Thomas sadly."
  • Thomas: "I can't run without my rails."
  • George Carlin: Bertie set off to collect Thomas' passengers."
  • Passengers: "Hello, Bertie."
  • George Carlin: "They said."
  • Passengers: "We're glad you're here."
  • George Carlin: Bertie ran along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Thomas felt miserable."
  • Thomas: "I've lost my passengers to Bertie. They'll like him better than me."
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived."
  • Sir Topham Hatt: "Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Bertie can work together more."
  • George Carlin: When Thomas reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers."
  • Passengers: "Bertie is a good bus, but we missed our train rides with you."
  • George Carlin: "They said. Later, Thomas spoke to Bertie."
  • Thomas: "Thank you for looking after my passengers."
  • Bertie: "That's all right, Thomas. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you."
  • Thomas: "You're a good friend, indeed."
  • George Carlin: "Replied Thomas."
  • Thomas: "And always will be."

Percy Runs Away

  • George Carlin: Henry, James and Gordon were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty, and long to be let out again. At last, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope you are sorry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And that you understand that every job on the railway is important. We have a new tank engine called Percy who helps pull coaches and Thomas and Edward had worked the main line nicely, but I will let you now if you promise to work hard.
  • Gordon: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the three engines.
  • James: We will.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's good, but please remember that this no shunting nonsense must stop.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt then told Percy, Edward and Thomas that they can go and play on a branch line for a few days, and they ran off happily to find Annie and Clarabel at the junction. The two coaches were very pleased to see Thomas again. Edward and Percy played with the freight cars.
  • Cars: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars as they pushed them to their proper sidings. But the two engines laughed and went on shunting till the cars were tightling arranged. Next, Edward took some empty cars from the quarry. Percy was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He like watching trains and being cheeky to the other engines.
  • Percy: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He would call, and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Percy was waiting for the signalman to set the switch so that he can go back to the yard. Percy was being rather careless and not paying attention. Edward had warned Percy.
  • Edward: Be careful on the main line. Whistle to the signalman that you are there.
  • George Carlin: But Percy didn't remember to whistle, and so the busy signalman forgot him. Percy waited and waited. The switch were still against him so he couldn't move. Then, he looked along the main line.
  • Percy: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Gordon with the express.
  • Gordon: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Gordon.
  • Gordon: Get out of my way!
  • George Carlin: Percy opened his eyes. Gordon had stopped with Percy's buffers just a few inches from his own. But Percy had began to move.
  • Percy: I won't stay here, I'll run away!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He ran straight through Edward's station, and was so frighetend that he ran right up Gordon's hill without stopping. After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to shut off steam and applied his brakes.
  • Percy: I want to stop! I want to stop!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Percy was in trouble, so he kindly set the switch. Percy puffed wearly onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
  • Percy: I want to stop, I want to stop! I have stopped!
  • George Carlin: He puffed thankly.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said the workmen as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have some drink and some coal and then you feel better.
  • George Carlin: Presently, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Well done, Percy. You started so quickly that you stopped the nasty accident.
  • Percy: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Gordon: You were clever to stop.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon. Then Gordon helped pull Percy out from the bank. The two engines are now good friends, but Percy was always most careful that he goes out on the main line.

Edward Helps Out

  • 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 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!
  • 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. So 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.

Toby's Discovery

  • Alec Baldwin: One morning, Sir Topham Hatt and his grandchildren came to see Toby.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come on, Toby, we're all going to the seaside. We will ride in Henrietta.
  • Toby: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby happily. They came to a small seaside station. Soon, the children were playing in the sand, building a splendid castle. Sir Topham Hatt inspected it.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My word's a very fine castle. Have you seen a real one like it?
  • Children: Yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the children.
  • Children: It's here on the Island.
  • Alec Baldwin: And they showed him the map.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Pondered Sir Topham Hatt. They met Toby at the harbour.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, we are going exploring.
  • Alec Baldwin: Soon they were in the wildest part of the Island. They stopped by a lonely signalbox.
  • Signalman: Where are you going?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the Signalman.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We're trying to find an old castle.
  • Signalman: I know the place sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: There's a small junction not too far down the line. Just switch the points.
  • Alec Baldwin: When the fireman switched the points, their adventure really began. Toby pushed past branches and bushes until they came to another little junction. There they saw two signs saying: To The Castle and To The Mine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll go to the castle first.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby stopped by an old water tower.
  • Children: There's the castle.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And now we shall visit the mine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Once upon a time, the mine had been worked by the little engines and their lines were still in place. But now everything is very rusty and overgrown. Sir Topham Hatt was most impressed, but Toby was rather scared. He was glas when it was time to go home.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I think the castle and the mine will make a fine place for visitors. But it will take some hard work first.
  • Toby: Y-yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby nervously. Sir Topham Hatt's plans were soon put into action. But Toby was still worried.
  • Toby: I'm sure this place was haunted.
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought.
  • Toby's Driver: It's our turn to stay here on guard tonight, Toby.
  • Toby: Oh y-y-yes. Why not?
  • Alec Baldwin: Stuttered Toby.
  • Thomas: Beware of the ghost, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Toby: What ghost?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby?
  • Thomas: The old warrior ghost. Every night he lights his fire then goes hunting. Toot toot, goodbye.
  • Alec Baldwin: Night came. Toby looked anxiously around. Everything seemed rather spooky. Quite suddenly, he heard a strange wheezing sound.
  • Toby: It's the ghost!
  • Alec Baldwin: He wailed.
  • Toby's Driver: What ghost?
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver asked.
  • Toby: It's the old warrior. He's come to hunt me down.
  • Toby's Driver: Don't be so daft. We'll go and investigate.
  • Alec Baldwin: They returned quite soon.
  • Toby's Fireman: The old warrior wants to meet you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his fireman.
  • Toby: Can't it wait till morning?
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: Ghosts don't work dayshifts.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. Toby bravely made his way.
  • Toby: Well blast my bell.
  • Alec Baldwin: He exclaimed. There in front of him was a little old engine.
  • Signalman: This is your ghost, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: His name's really Bertrum. But we call him the old warrior because he's so brave.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bertrum and Toby are now friends. They take the visitors to the castle and the mine. If there are any ghosts here, they certainly help to make the place very happy.

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 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.

Edward's Exploit

  • George Carlin: Bertie the Bus was giving some visitors the tour on the Island of Sodor. It was their last afternoon, and Edward was preparing to take them to meet Bill and Ben. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Henry: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • James: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked James.
  • Gordon: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Duck.
  • Duck: You're all jealous. Edward's better than any of you.
  • BoCo: You're right, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: Edward's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Edward: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward, as he finally puffed out of the station. Bill and Ben were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special. Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Edward took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Edward. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Edward's wheels slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Edward?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned engine. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Edward: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Edward. Edward puffed and pulled his hardest. But his wheels kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Edward. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with freight cars.
  • Edward: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Edward: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Edward's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearly, but unbeaten, Edward steamed in. Henry was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Edward, his driver and fireman. Duck and BoCo saw to it that Edward was left in peace. Gordon and James remain respectfully silent.

All At Sea

  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck like working at the harbour by the sea. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Duck and Percy puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Duck and Percy noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Duck: I wish i could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duck.
  • Percy: Engines can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Percy: Because engines can't float.
  • George Carlin: Duck still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Harold: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Harold.
  • Duck: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Harold: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case i'm needed.
  • Duck: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck.
  • Harold: Yes and beyond.
  • Percy: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Duck: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck.
  • Harold: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Percy lost patience.
  • Percy: Well, Duck, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Duck's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck's driver.
  • Duck's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Duck's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Harold's bringing him now. Come on.
  • Harold: Good to see you again, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Harold as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Harold: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise i will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Bertie got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Bertie: You look splendid flying along the line, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Bertie.
  • Bertie: No wonder they called you great western.
  • Duck: Thank you, Bertie. Percy's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Duck: Engines are happiest when their wheels are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Percy and Duck stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Duck: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: It's Harold. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Duck. His driver caught it.
  • Duck's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Harold's giving it to you as a present, Duck.
  • Duck: That was kind of Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • Duck: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what an engine needs.
  • George Carlin: Duck still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But i think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?

Henry and The Elephant

  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. You're right on time and really reliable.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Ooh, right on time and really reliable.
  • George Carlin: Hummed the coaches. But the big engines were not feeling cheerful at all.
  • Henry: Where's Percy?
  • George Carlin: Mumbled Henry.
  • Henry: He suppose to fetch our coaches.
  • James: We get no rest.
  • George Carlin: Complained James. He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Henry.
  • James: What's the matter, Henry? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead.
  • Henry: I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Anyway, you looked silly enough to be a clown you should join the circus.
  • Percy: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: So you heard the news?
  • Gordon: What news?
  • Percy: About the circus.
  • James: Percy, what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The circus has arrived.
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I've been shunting special cars. Sir Topham Hatt need your help too.
  • George Carlin: The engines soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Gordon and Henry were cross all over again when James got to pull the train away. A little later Sir Topham Hatt returned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, Henry. A tunnel has blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate.
  • Henry: Pushing cars, pushing cars.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Henry. They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside. It was very dark and quiet. But not for long.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Workmen: Help!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the workmen and they ran out.
  • Workman: We started to dig at the block but it grunted and moved.
  • George Carlin: One said.
  • Foreman: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Workman: It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again.
  • Foreman: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: I'll ride in the cars and Henry shall push it out.
  • Henry: Weesh!
  • George Carlin: Said Henry unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain but this was worse. Something big and alive was inside.
  • Henry: Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in.
  • Driver: Neither do i.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: But we must clear the line.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry. Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong it began to push the train backwards. Out of the tunnel came Henry, then the cars and last of all a large cross elephant.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Foreman: Well I never!
  • George Carlin: Cried the foreman. The workmen gave him some cake.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • George Carlin: He drank three buckets of water and it was just about to drink another when Henry let off steam.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • George Carlin: Cried the elephant. Water went all over Henry. Poor Henry! The elephant and his keeper was so reunited, but Henry was most upset.
  • Henry: An elephant pushed me! An elephant hoosed me!
  • George Carlin: That night, he told the other engines all about it. Gordon and James felt sorry for Henry, but still teased him.
  • Gordon: First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?
  • Thomas: Never mind, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: I think you are brave today, and really reliable too.

  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Bertie chased after Edward once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!

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 essential. 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.

The Runaway

  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was ill. Workmen had been trying to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward must take you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Thomas felt very miserable. Then, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to help Percy and Toby while Thomas is away.
  • George Carlin: Duck was delighted. He already knew Percy and soon made friends with Toby and Bertie. Terence the Tractor gave him a big welcome too.
  • Terence: Take care of Thomas' coaches.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Terence: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Duck was very gentle with the coaches. Annie and Clarabel were impressed.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: When Thomas came back, Annie and Clarabel told him how well duck had managed. Thomas was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: The works have left Thomas' handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Thomas found this most embarrassing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Thomas' fireman was ill and a relief man took his place.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Henry's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Thomas' handbrake. Thomas simmered happily.
  • Thomas: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He thought. As he saw Henry slowly approaching. But Thomas' brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver friman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Annie and Clarabel. But Thomas, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Harold the Helicopter. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Thomas was tiring.
  • Thomas: I need to stop, i need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Thomas saw Harold land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • George Carlin: At last Thomas stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Harold.
  • Harold: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Weirdly, Thomas agreed with him.

Henry's Forest

  • George Carlin: Henry the Green Engine has lived on the Island of Sodor for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He liked every part of it from the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Henry always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too.
  • Henry's Driver: Come on, Henry.
  • George Carlin: He would sometimes say.
  • Henry's Driver: We made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest.
  • George Carlin: Henry loved it here. The forest was filled with broad oaks and tall pines. Henry could remember the day long ago when he and Toby brought some new trees to be planted and Terence and Trevor helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others. Henry always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why but his driver understood.
  • Henry's Driver: It's peaceful.
  • George Carlin: He said to Henry. But one night, everything changed. The engines were resting in the shed.
  • Thomas: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can you hear a strange whistling sound?
  • Toby: It's the wind blowing outside our shed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Toby: But I never heard of like this before.
  • James: Do you know.
  • George Carlin: Added James.
  • James: If Gordon wasn't here now, I say it was him thundering by with the express.
  • George Carlin: All the engines laughed, except Henry.
  • Henry: I hope the wind won't harm the forest.
  • George Carlin: By morning, the fierce winds have gone but the damage was done. Henry's driver came to see him in the yard.
  • Henry's Driver: Trees have fallen on the line.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Henry's Driver: We must help clear the tracks.
  • George Carlin: Donald set off with the breakdown train and Henry followed. Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Henry felt sad.
  • Henry: What will happen to all the animals who lived here?
  • George Carlin: He thought. When Henry's flat cars were full of logs, he took them to the timbermill where they will be turned to furniture and other things. Henry was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was sorry to lose part of his forest.
  • Toby: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Toby to Thomas.
  • Toby: I wish there was something we can do to make things better again.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: But what? We can't mend broken trees.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You do look glum.
  • Toby: I'm sad about the trees.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: And so is Henry. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it was gone.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll soon put that right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have an important job for you, Toby. I will like you to take some freight cars to the forest.
  • George Carlin: When the freight cars arrived, Toby was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees already for plating.
  • Toby: This is the best job I've ever had.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby happily. When Henry returned, he was most surprised. There were Terence and Trevor busily helping the workmen clear the torrents stumps and branches.
  • Terence: Look, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Terence.
  • Terence: We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see.
  • George Carlin: Now whenever Henry stops by the forest, he could see the new trees growing strong and tall. Sometimes, everywhere was very quiet, and the other times, Henry could hear leaves rustling, or birds wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sounds of children laughing, and always he is happy here.
