Script

  • (We open this episode with a CGI Thomas passing over a bridge)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 8-10 intro. After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surrounded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: Hello, Thomas!
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (An engine puffing by sequence then happens and we start today's episode)
  • Michael Brandon: Today on the Island of Sodor, we find out what happens when Thomas get into a model with some chickens, some children and some sheep. But first, James wishes he had a more important job.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin James Goes Too Far)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a crisp cold winter day on the Island of Sodor. Snow lay fit on the ground. The engines were working extra hard. James was pulling the slow goods train. He had stopped at a signal. Percy pulled up alongside carrying the mail.
  • Percy: Hello, James.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Percy. Then the signal changed to green.
  • Percy: Goodbye, James.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Percy and he was off in a flash.
  • James: I was here first.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled James.
  • James: Why do I have to wait?
  • James' Driver: The mail train is more important than slow goods.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Later, James stopped for water. Thomas was already in front of him.
  • Thomas: I have to go first.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas excitedly.
  • Thomas: I am a guarateed connection.
  • James: Everyone has a more important job than me.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled James.
  • Thomas: Nonsense.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Everyone knows you're a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: But James wanted to be an important engine too. Later that day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must take coal to all the stations on the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If the fire's in the waiting room go out, the passengers will get cold and complained. It is a very important job.
  • Michael Brandon: He added.
  • James: You can rely on me, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James proudly. Sir Topham Hatt left. James was excited.
  • James: An important job!
  • Michael Brandon: He said happily.
  • Gordon: Huh!
  • Michael Brandon: Sniffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: It's only a lot of coal after all.
  • James: Nonsense!
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: I am going to keep the passengers warm. What could be more important than none?
  • Michael Brandon: And he wheeshed over to the water tower. But there was a line at the water tank.
  • James: Come on!
  • Michael Brandon: He steamed impatiently.
  • James: I have an important job to do!
  • Thomas: Wait your turn, bossy boiler.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. James felt too important to wait, so he didn't. James rushed to the coaling station. He met Edward waiting at a junction. Edward was looking bothered. He had too many jobs and he was feeling puffed out.
  • Edward: Can you take these slate cars to the quarry?
  • Michael Brandon: Edward asked.
  • James: Sorry Edward, but I can't.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed James.
  • James: I've got the most important job on the island.
  • Michael Brandon: And he chuffed grandly away. James arrived at the coaling station. He buffered up to the coal cars and was on his way. James was looking forward to deliver his coal.
  • James: Now I'm useful and important!
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed happily. Then, there was trouble. James puffed harder and harder. He went faster and faster. And then he began to feel hotter and hotter.
  • James: I don't feel well.
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed James. And he had to stop.
  • James' Driver: Your water tanks have run dry!
  • Michael Brandon: His driver told him.
  • James' Driver: We'll have to wait for help!
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, Edward pulled up beside James.
  • James: Please pushed me to the water tank.
  • Michael Brandon: Pleaded James.
  • Edward: I'm sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward puffed sadly.
  • Edward: You would take my freight cars to the quarry and now I'm running late with my passenger train.
  • Michael Brandon: And Edward steamed away. Edward stopped and told the signalman all about James. The signalman telephoned for help. And soon Salty was on his way. He pulled up alongside James.
  • Salty: Why didn't you fill up with water this morning, matey?
  • Michael Brandon: James told him about the water tank.
  • Salty: I've heard you were too busy to help Edward too.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty.
  • James: I was in a hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Protested James.
  • James: Mine is the most important job on the island.
  • Salty: No job is more important than helping another engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty firmly. And deep down in his boiler, James knew Salty was right. Thanks to Salty, James' water tank was soon filled and he was well on his way. He knew he had to make up for lost time. Then, James saw Diesel up ahead. He had broken down and looked unhappy. James wanted to tease him, but then he remembered what Salty had said.
  • James: No job is more important then helping another engine.
  • Michael Brandon: He said to himself. And even Diesel is an engine.
  • James: Come on, Diesel. I'll push you back to the sheds.
  • Michael Brandon: Pushing Diesel and pulling freight cars was hard work. At last, James got Diesel to the repair yard. But he still had to deliver his coal. The wind blew and it was getting cold by the minute. James steamed all over the island delivering coal to the station waiting rooms. Everyone was pleased to see James. Thanks to him, they will all kept toasty warm. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see James. He knew all about him running out of water and is not helping with Edward's trucks.
  • James: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James.
  • James: I put my own job first.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you did learned your lesson and you helped Diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt boomed cheerfully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And you delivered your coal on time. You James, are a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: James nearly burst with pride.
  • James: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Being really useful was better than feeling important.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Henry is ready to lead the station. What's he pulling today? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling...horses. Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses and...hats. Now Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats and...hot dogs. Can you remember what Henry is hauling? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats and hot dogs. I wonder what's next. Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats, hot dogs and...hay. Can you still remember all the things Henry was hauling? Henry huffs happily out of the station hauling horses, hats, hot dogs and hay. I wonder where Henry is going. Henry is huffing his way to a horse show.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas, Toby and James need to collect some loads. But they don't know which load they will be pulling. There's a freight cars full of coal. There's a coach for pulling passengers and there's some crates full of bananas. Let's help the engines find out what they will be pulling today. Can you guess which freight car Toby will be pulling? Let's find out. The track is very twisty. Toby chuffs around the corners. I wonder what Toby will be pulling today. He's nearly there. The freight car with coal. Toby's taking coal today. Who's next? James. Which freight car will James be pulling? James is chuffing and puffing, twising and turning. Can you guess what James will be pulling? He's nearly there. James has got the coach. He must be pulling passengers today. Now it's Thomas' turn. You can guess what Thomas is going to pull, can't you? There he goes. Keep going. Nearly there. Yes, that's right. Thomas is taking the bananas. All the engines have found their loads. Well done, Toby.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • Michael Brandon: Well done, James.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: And well done, Thomas.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily is taking coal to the docks. She has lots of coal cars and they are very heavy. Emily has to puff up Gordon's Hill. Gordon's Hill is long and steep. The coal cars are too heavy. Emily can't pull them up the hill by herself. I wonder who can help Emily. Who helps engines up Gordon's Hill? Edward helps engines up Gordon's Hill. Edward pushes as hard as he can. Emily pulls as hard as she can. Together, Edward and Emily get the coal cars to the top of Gordon's Hill. Edward is a very helpful engine. And good friends always help each other.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Chickens To School)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a cool summer's night on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were very busy and there were lots of jobs to do. Gordon pulled the express. And Percy took the mail. He delivered letters and parcels across the whole island. Thomas was delivering coal to the coaling plant. It was a very long journey and a very heavy train. Thomas worked all night puffing through the countryside. At last, Thomas had delivered all the coal. He was very tired.
  • Thomas: I'm puffed out.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I wish I'd had some help delivering the coal.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: A really useful engine doesn't need help.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to run three special deliveries for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Thomas: I can do it.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas. He was tired, but he wanted to prove he was a really useful engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Very well, Thomas. You must take some chickens to the market, sheep to the farm and the children to school.
  • Gordon: That's a very big job for a small engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You're bound to need some help.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: Tank engines don't need help.
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Thomas.
  • Thomas: We're really useful.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed away.
  • Thomas: Chickens to market, sheep to the farm and children to school.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed. First, Thomas collected the chickens.
  • (Chickens clucking)
  • Michael Brandon: Next, Thomas puffed into the valley. All the sheep were waiting for him.
  • Thomas: Come on.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas panted to the sheep.
  • Thomas: I'll take you to the farm.
  • (The sheep are loaded to a van)
  • Michael Brandon: Finally, Thomas trundled into the station. He was very tired. The children's smiling faces made him feel happy. But his axles were aching. The children were all on board and Thomas puffed away. Thomas puffed up Gordon's Hill. And through Henry's Tunnel. It was a very long way. His pistons were pounding and his axles were aching, but Thomas kept puffing.
  • Thomas: Chickens to market, sheep to the farm, children to school.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas panted. Thomas was getting more and more tired. He started to get confused.
  • Thomas: Sheep to market, children to the farm, chickens to school.
  • Michael Brandon: Yawned Thomas. When Thomas arrived at the market, he was very confusing indeed.
  • Thomas: Please unload the sheep.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. He should have said chickens. But now, the sheep were unloaded. Then, Emily arrived. Emily could see that Thomas was tired.
  • Emily: Would you like some help?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily.
  • Thomas: No thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Tank engines don't need help.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas did need help. He was worn out. At last, the sheep were unloaded. Thomas puffed away.
  • Thomas: Sheep to market, children to the farm and chickens to school.
  • Michael Brandon: Yawned Thomas sleepily. When Thomas got to the farm, he told the children that it was they're stop. So all the children got off at Farmer McColl's. Thomas was terribly tired. Finally, Thomas arrived at the school. Only the chickens were left. So the chickens were unloaded. And Thomas puffed back to the sheds. Sir Topham Hatt was in his office. He was getting lots of phone calls. The sheep had knocked over lots of market stalls. The children had seen all the farm animals and the classroom was full of chickens. At last, Thomas puffed into Tidmouth Sheds. He was looking forward to a nice long sleep. Then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you have caused confusion and delay!
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Sir Topham Hatt told Thomas what had happened. Thomas was upset. He was very tired. And now he had to go and do all his jobs all over again.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: All you need is some help.
  • Thomas: Gordon said a really useful engine never needs help.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Edward: Ha!
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Edward.
  • Edward: I'm always helping Gordon up the hill.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon was very embarrassed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy and Edward, you want to help Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said. So Thomas puffed away with his friends. Percy took the sheep from the market to the farm. Edward took the chickens from the school to the market. And Thomas collected the children.
  • Thomas: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed to the children.
  • Thomas: I didn't mean to take you to the wrong place.
  • Children: We don't mind.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the children.
  • Children: We had a grand day out seeing the animals and learning all about the farm.
  • Michael Brandon: And that night when Thomas finally went to sleep, he dreamt about sheep, and chickens and children.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and Engine Roll Call starts)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. Thomas - he's the cheeky one, James - is vain but lots of fun, Percy - pulls the mail on time, Gordon - thunders down the line, Emily - really knows her stuff, Henry - toots and huffs and puffs, Edward - wants to help and share, Toby - well let's say, he's square. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
