  • Here's the full transcript to James Gets A New Coat.


  • Michael Brandon: All Sir Topham Hatt's engines like to look clean, bright and shiny. They love being washed down and having their brassed polished until it gleams. James was in the workshop being repainted. He was beside himself with joy. James thought being repainted meant he was special. The workmen painted and polished for hour upon hour. Then with new paint shining, brass tinkling, and blacking black, James returned to Tidmouth Sheds.
  • James: Look, aren't I a beautiful red?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked the others.
  • James: No wonder Sir Topham Hatt thinks I'm special.
  • Michael Brandon: But Percy was worried. He wasn't being repainted and he wasn't red.
  • Percy: Does this mean Sir Topham Hatt doesn't think I'm special?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked.
  • Thomas: Looking splendid is not the same as being really useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas firmly.
  • James: But best of all is being really useful and looking splendid like me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James cheerfully. Before Thomas could say anything else, James close his eyes and fell happily asleep. The next morning, all the engines were very busy. Percy was working at the coal plant. Thomas and Emily were taking passengers up and down the branch lines. Gordon was pulling the express. Sir Topham Hatt came to see James. He told him to join Percy at the coal plant at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The coal cars must reach brendam docks before the boat sails, so no dilly-dallying.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • James: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James and he set off at once. But James didn't go straight to the coaling plant. He decided to go by the canal instead. Then he could see himself in the water for yard, after yard, after yard.
  • James: Magnificent.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. James had forgotten what Sir Topham Hatt had said. At the coal yard, Percy was working as hard as he could. But he was falling behind. The line of coal cars were getting longer and longer. And the yard manager was getting crosser and crosser. Where could James be? James was still enjoying himself. But there was no one around to share his fun. So he headed for Wellsworth Station. But as James pulled into Wellsworth Station, Gordon and the express were pulling out. The passengers had gone.
  • James: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James. He was disappointed and he left the station. James headed straight for the branch lines. James saw Thomas.
  • James: Look at me.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • James: Don't I look fine?
  • Thomas: You should be at work.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Thomas. But James didn't listen to Thomas. James was enjoying being James. But Percy wasn't enjoying being Percy. He was trying his hardest, but the troublesome trucks were being very naughty. Poor Percy was almost worn out.
  • Yard Manager: What will happen to the order?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the yard manager. When James rolled into the coal plant, it was late in the afternoon. Percy was cross. So was the yard manager.
  • Yard Manager: To make up for lost time...
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Yard Manager: must take an extra long line of coal cars to the docks.
  • Michael Brandon: James was delighted. The docks were always bustling with engines and people.
  • James: It's the place to be seen.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Percy: The troublesome trucks are being very naughty.
  • Michael Brandon: Warned Percy. But James still wasn't listening. James puffed along, looking forward to be seen. But the troublesome trucks were naughtier than ever. They rocked and rolled, and crashed and bashed. James' face was soon covered in soot. Rolling downhill, the troublesome trucks wiggled and giggled. James had to put his brakes on with a jolt. Coal tumbled out of the troublesome trucks, landing on James. James was cross, and biffed the troublesome trucks as hard as he could. More coal flew out. Now, James didn't want to be seen. He was as dirty as he had even been. But on his way to the docks, he kept passing his friends. He passed Emily, and Edward, and Thomas. Thomas thought the only red thing left on James was his face. James trundled into brendam docks. He hoped no one would see him. But Gordon was at the docks with the express. He could not believe his eyes. He thought James was the grubbiest, grimiest, dustiest, dirtiest engine he had ever seen. Percy arrived safely with the last of the coal cars.
  • Percy: I like your new coat of paint.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed cheekily.
  • Percy: You do look splendid.
  • Michael Brandon: James knew he should have listened. He didn't feel splendid anymore. But for the first time all day, James could hear clearly. He could hear the sound of the troublesome trucks giggling at him. And despite feeling foolish, even James had to smile.
