  • Michael Brandon: James The Second Best. James and Edward have the same size. They both have black funnels, buffers at the front, and tenders at the back. And they are both engines on Sir Topham Hatt's Railway. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt brought a photographer to Tidmouth Sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This year, there is to be a holiday poster for the railway.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And I need an engine to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: All the engines were very excited. James was sure his photographer would be taken.
  • James: I will look wonderful on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The engine on the Sodor Railway poster will be...Edward!
  • Michael Brandon: Announced Sir Topham Hatt. Edward was delighted. But James couldn't believe it. He was sure a red engine would be just the thing for the poster. The photographer try to take a picture of Edward, but James got in the way.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, leave the shed now.
  • Michael Brandon: Ordered Sir Topham Hatt. James puffed sadly away. Soon the posters were seen all over the island. But James still want to be the poster engine.
  • James: I wonder why Edward was chosen instead of me?
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed.
  • Henry: Because,
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Edward is always gentle with the freight cars.
  • Percy: And he doesn't mind doing the dirty jobs.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy.
  • Thomas: And he's always on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. James was cross.
  • James: I can do all those things too.
  • Michael Brandon: Podded James.
  • James: I'll show you that I'm good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: And he chuffed away. The next day, Edward and Thomas were working in the yard. Edward shunted his freight cars softly and smoothly. When James arrived, he shunted his freight cars softly and smoothly too.
  • James: See? I can be gentle just like Edward.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed James.
  • James: I am good enough to be on the poster.
  • Thomas: Edward finished a long time ago.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's already delivered his coal. That's why he's the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: James wanted to be as good as Edward, so he raced off to collect his coal cars. James delivered dirty coal cars all afternoon. He became greasy, grimy and grubby and his bright shiny red coat was soon covered in coal dust.
  • James: See?
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed James.
  • James: I can get just as dirty as Edward. I am good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: But James was so dirty it took a long time to get him clean. James was soaped and scrubbed. They even brushed behind his buffers.
  • Percy: Your gentle shunting and getting dirty has made you late for your passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy cheekily.
  • Percy: Edward is always on time. That's why he's the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, James had an idea.
  • James: If I take Gordon's express line instead of the branch line,
  • Michael Brandon: He thought.
  • James: I will arrive before Edward and collect my passengers first. That will show everyone I'm good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: So James puffed on to Gordon's line. They he raced across the countryside. James rattled over bridges and clattered through tunnels. He really wanted to get in front of Edward. James puffed back on to Edward's line.
  • James: It worked!
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed James.
  • James: I'm first!
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly the signal turned red. James applied his brakes and screeched to a halt, but Edward couldn't stop in time.
  • (Crash!)
  • Edward: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Edward.
  • Edward: I didn't have time to stop.
  • James: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned James.
  • James: It was my fault for pushing in.
  • Thomas: You're finally in the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuckled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe you're not good enough after all.
  • Michael Brandon: But James didn't feel very good. He felt very silly. Soon, Emily arrived with Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, your racing around has caused confusion and delay.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said sternly.
  • James: Yes sir, sorry sir.
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward, your cylinder has been damaged. You can't take the children to the seaside today.
  • Michael Brandon: The children at the station were very sad.
  • Children: But we wanted to ride on the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: The children cried. James felt worse than ever.
  • James: Please, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed.
  • James: If I was a back engine, all the children could still ride on Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What a wonderful idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Edward and his passenger cars were very heavy. But James pushed him slowly to the seaside. His pistons pumped and his axles ached, but James pressed on. They stopped along way to pick up more children.
  • Children: It's Edward!
  • Michael Brandon: The children cheered.
  • Children: And look at James! He's pushing him! Isn't James a grand engine for being so kind?
  • Michael Brandon: James was so proud it made his boiler bubbled. He felt more useful than he had ever felt before.
  • Edward: Even thought you weren't the engine on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Edward.
  • Edward: You are still really useful.
