Transcript

  • (We open this CD with the Thomas Season 1-7 theme and the start of James In A Mess)
  • Ringo Starr: Toby and Henrietta are enjoying their new job on the Island of Sodor, but they do look old fashioned and need new paint. James was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • James: Ugh! What dirty objects!
  • Ringo Starr: He would say. At last, Toby lost patience.
  • Toby: James?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Toby: Why are you red?
  • James: I am a splendid engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered James.
  • James: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Toby: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby earnestly.
  • Toby: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • Ringo Starr: James went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be remind how the time the bootlace have been use to mend a hole in his coaches. At the end of the line, James left his coaches and got out to his next train. It was a slow freight, stopping at every station to pick up and set down cars. James hated slow freight trains.
  • James: Dirty cars from dirty sidings! Blech!
  • Ringo Starr: Starting an only a few, he picked up more and more cars at each station till he had a long train. At first, the freight cars behaved well, but James bumped them so crossly that they were determined to get back at him. Presently, they approached the top of Gordon's Hill. Heavy freight trains halt here to set the brakes. James had had an accident with cars before and should have remembered this.
  • Driver: Wait, James, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver, but James wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he would say to Toby when they next met. The freight cars' chance had come.
  • Cars: Hurrah! Hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed, and banging their buffers they pushed him down the hill.
  • Cars: On, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Yelled the cars.
  • James: I've got to stop, I've got to stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned James. Through the station they thundered, disaster lay ahead. (Crash!) Something sticky splashed all over James. He had run into two tar wagons, and was black from smokebox to cab. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar wagons and some cars were all to pieces. Toby and Percy were sent to help and came as quickly as they could.
  • Toby: Look here, Percy!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained Toby.
  • Toby: Whatever is that dirty object?
  • Percy: That's James, didn't you know?
  • Toby: It's James' shape.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby.
  • Toby: But James is a splendid red engine and you'll never see his paint dirty.
  • Ringo Starr: James pretended he hadn't heard. Toby and Percy cleared away the unhurt cars and help James home. Sir Topham Hatt met them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Percy and Toby.
  • Ringo Starr: He turned to James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Fancy letting your cars run away. I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen. You must be cleaned at once. Toby shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Toby: Please sir, can Henrietta have one too?
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly, Toby.
  • Toby: Oh thank you, sir. She will pleased.
  • Ringo Starr: All James could do as watch Toby as he ran off happily with the news.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bertie's Chase)
  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Edward was waiting to pick some passengers from Thomas' train.
  • Edward: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Thomas? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • Ringo Starr: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Thomas. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Bertie Bus in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • Ringo Starr: He clambered down.
  • Bertie: Stop, stop! I've got Thomas' passengers!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Bertie, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Edward was gone.
  • Bertie: Bother.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Bother Thomas' fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Bertie.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Bertie: I'll catch Edward or bust.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • Ringo Starr: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Bertie: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • Ringo Starr: Cheered Bertie as he reached the top.
  • Bertie: Oh no! Edward's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Bertie toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Bertie!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • Ringo Starr: Bertie skitted into the yard.
  • Bertie: Wait, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Bertie. He was just in time to see Edward puffed away.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bertie.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Edward. I'll just make sure.
  • Ringo Starr: He spoke to the stationmaster. Bertie and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers, as Bertie chased after Edward once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the coaches as Edward snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Edward: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Edward.
  • Edward: Get in quickly please.
  • Ringo Starr: The conductor blew the whistle and Edward's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Bertie. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Edward: I'm sorry about the chase, Bertie.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Bertie: My fault.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: Late at junction. You didn't know about Thomas' passengers.
  • Edward: Peep peep! Goodbye, Bertie! We're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Edward.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Bertie!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers. Bertie raced back to tell Thomas that all was well.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Bertie, for keeping your promise.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a very good friend indeed.
  • (Another 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 cars. Gordon thought how he can pay Percy back for teasing him. Next it was James' turn.
  • Percy: Stay in the shed today, James. Sir Topham Hatt will come and see you.
  • James: Ah!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought James.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt 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: Sir Topham Hatt 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 Sir Topham Hatt came back, he was cross with James and Percy for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Percy was still being cheeky.
  • Percy: I say, you engines, I'm to take some freight cars to Thomas' junction. Sir Topham Hatt 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 play a trick on Percy.
  • 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 freight cars 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 Percy Proves A Point)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy worked hard at the new harbour. The workmen needed stone for their building. Toby helped, but sometimes the loads of stone are too heavy, and Percy had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes, he sees Thomas.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy. Sir Topham Hatt is very pleased with us.
  • Ringo Starr: An airfield was closed by. Percy heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a helicopter.
  • Percy: Stupid thing!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Why can't and go and buzz somewhere else?
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Percy stopped at the airfield.
  • Percy: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Who are you?
  • Harold: I'm Harold.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the helicopter.
  • Harold: Who are you?
  • Percy: I'm Percy. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Harold: They're nice arms.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Harold.
  • Harold: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Percy: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Harold: I think railways are slow.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Harold.
  • Harold: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • Ringo Starr: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Percy found Toby at the quarry.
  • Percy: I say Toby. That Harold, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says i'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • Ringo Starr: He collected his freight cars and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familar buzzing.
  • Driver: Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Harold. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Percy: Yes, let's.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy. Percy pounded along, the cars screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver. There was Harold. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Percy!
  • George Carlin: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • Ringo Starr: Percy had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Percy: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the cars.
  • Cars: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • Ringo Starr: They grumbled. It was no use. Percy was bucketing along with flying wheels and Harold was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Percy!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • Ringo Starr: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Percy: Peep peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please?
  • Ringo Starr: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and haulted on the wharf.
  • Percy: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Percy.
  • Percy: I'm sure we've lost.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Harold's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Percy. (singing) Said Harold the Helicopter to our Percy you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Percy and his stone cars did the trip in record time, and we beat the helicopter on our old branch line.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy loved it.
  • Percy: Oh, thank you!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy engine.
