  • Narrator: It was a splendid day on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were working happily. Thomas likes working on his branch line. Gordon likes being a good express. And Percy likes taking the mail. The most important is frieght cars of coal. One day, Boco oiled into the yards with frieght cars of coal. He had been working hard all night. But now, he was very tired and covered in coal dust. James, Gordon and Diesel laughed.
  • James: Look there, Gordon and Diesel. What is it? There's a sack of coal! (laughs)
  • Narrator: BoCo was cross.
  • BoCo: You'll be shunting coal. You'll be dirty!
  • Narrator: James took no notice.
  • James: That smelly coal-dust covered diesel should be sleeping in sheds!
  • Gordon: Shut up, James! Sheesh! I should be only an express engine!
  • Narrator: And he raced off. But suddenly, it happened! Gordon crashed into a goods train and landed on his side.
  • Gordon: Owww...
  • Narrator: Luckly, Gordon wasn't hurt. At last, Rocky lifted Gordon back on the rails. Sir Topham Hatt had important news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I needed two engines to collect some cement and take it to the new station. And I needed two engines to test it.
  • Narrator: All the engines were excited. James and Diesel were sure they would be chosen.
  • James: Can I and Diesel go to test the new station?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, I needed both of you to go to collect some frieght cars and take them to the station.
  • James: WHAT??!! FRIEGHT CARS??!!
  • Diesel: TO THE STATION??!!
  • Narrator: James and Diesel coudn't believe what they had heard.
  • James: We want to test this new station, and why can't Oliver and Henry do it?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You'll do it as you're both told, James and Diesel. As you know, really useful engines don't argue.
  • Diesel: Yes, sir.
  • James: Come on, partner. Let's go.
  • Narrator: And they pulled away. Edward and Toby laughed.
  • Edward: We hope both of us test the bridge.
  • Toby: Yes.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward and Toby, you'll do it.
  • Edward: Yes sir.
  • Narrator: And they puffed away. At the coal yards, Edward met James and Diesel.
  • James: Be careful, Edward. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • Edward: I will.
  • Narrator: And he puffed away. The James Bros. were arguing still.
  • James: We must be fast!
  • Diesel: We will!
  • James: We WILL!
  • Diesel: We WILL!
  • James: WE WILL!
  • Diesel: WE WILL!
  • James: WE WILL!
  • Diesel: WE WILL!
  • The Manager: Don't argue! Pick up your cars.
  • Narrator: And the two engines did. Billy shunted the frieght cars into James and Diesel. But the James Bros weren't listening. They were thinking about being the first two engines to test it.
  • James: We're all ready!
  • Diesel: And here we go!
  • James: Go ahead, Billy. Let's scram!!
  • Narrator: And they ran off, but Billy was in the back.
  • Billy: Hey, slow down, James and Diesel!!
  • Narrator: But the James Bros. still didn't listen.
  • Thomas: Oh dear. I think James and Diesel are gonna be in big trouble.
  • Narrator: And they were. On the way, they stopped to collect cement. They poured it to the last few cars.
  • James: Come on, Billy.
  • Diesel: We'll be the fastest!
  • James: When we get there, the bridge will be finished. Come along, slowcoach!
  • Narrator: And they raced on!
  • Billy: Slow down, James and Diesel!
  • Narrator: The James Bros. raced on, and Billy was scared. Later, Lightning McQueen, Mater and the Horrid Lorries were playing a game about Truck Dumper.
  • Lorry 1: Watch this, guys!
  • Narrator: Lorry 1 ran onto a button and a truck's dump spilled a pile of coal. Coal spilled down the mountain edge. James and Diesel were still racing, until the coupling snapped and Billy was left behind.
  • Billy: Aaaaaugh! (the coal lands on him)
  • Narrator: This made Lightning McQueen cross.
  • Lightning McQueen: You stupid lorry!
  • Narrator: And he bashed into Lorry 1, and Lorry 1 fell down the cliff and landed on Billy. Poor Billy.
  • Mater: Hey, Buddy. You're right about Lorry 1.
  • Lightning McQueen: Right, Mater.
  • Narrator: Lorry 2 and Lorry 3 stared, very stunned. Later, James and Diesel arrived at the site.
  • James: We're here!
  • Diesel: Um, James?
  • James: Yeah, Diesel.
  • Diesel: Where's Billy, that slowcoach?
  • James: He's left behind. We must go.
  • Narrator: And the brothers raced off. And the cement cars were uncoupled. James and Diesel were still racing along the line as fast as they could.
  • James: Must be first, must be first.
  • Narrator: At last they stopped at a water tower for a drink. Soon, Thomas arrived.
  • Thomas: Slow down, you two, and take care.
  • James: We are taking care!!
  • Diesel: And we must be the first two to test that station.
  • Narrator: And they raced off. Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, One of the Horrid Lorries had fallen off a cliff and landed on Billy. We must go and rescue him.
  • Narrator: And Thomas puffed away. Later, James and Diesel were racing along the main line.
  • James: Must be first, must be first.
  • Narrator: Suddenly, the frieght cars thought of bumping them.
  • Frieght Cars: On, on, on!
  • Narrator: Their drivers tried to brake, but the brothers were out of control. They were scared. They had never been gone this fast. Suddenly, McQueen trundled across James and Diesel's lines.
  • James: Look out!
  • (The brothers almost crash into McQueen)
  • Oliver: Slow down!
  • James: We can't! Wooaaahhh!!
  • Narrator: A paint workshop bloomed ahead. James and Diesel's drivers applided their brakes, but it was too late.
  • (CRASH!!)
  • Narrator: When the brothers opened their eyes, they saw that they were inside the paint workshop. They were covered in paint.
  • James: What happened, my bro.
  • Diesel: We are all covered in paint.
  • Narrator: The paint owner was furious!
  • The Paint Owner: You silly engines frightened my customers! I'll teach both of you!
  • Narrator: FIrst, he threw the yellow paint at James' face.
  • James: Oof!
  • Narrator: And then, brown paint at Diesel's face,
  • Diesel: Oof!
  • Narrator: The two engines felt awful. Soon, Harvey arrived.
  • Harvey: Woah, James and Diesel! That's some accident there! Don't worry, I'll get both of you outta there.
  • Narrator: Later, Rocky lifted Billy back on the rails and Lorry 1 onto his flatbed. Lorry 1's front and flatbed was dented and his head-lights were completely smashed and all his wheels had come off. Billy wanted to tell Sir Topham Hatt how rude James and Diesel had being recently when Harvey puffed up, pulling James and Diesel.
  • Harvey: See, sir. Can you see how messy James and Diesel are?
  • Narrator: Sir Topham Hatt looked at James and Diesel. James' red paint was covered in yellow, blue and green paint, and Diesel's black paint was covered in red, blue, green, purple and orange.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You two have done it this time! You caused nothing but confusion and delay! You have got Billy and Lorry 1 in an accident! And both of you had crashed into a paint workshop! Just look at both of you! You're both covered in paint!
  • James: But we felt like being the first two engines to test the new station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: SILENCE!! For your punishment, you'll be staying in the sheds for the next two months!
  • James: NO! NOT TWO MONTHS!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes! Two Months!
  • James a d Diesel: WE'RE SORRY, SIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: both of you! If you two kept saying you're sorry to me, I shall make that five months for James and send Diesel away and he cannot come back!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Narrator: The two engines were quite embarrased.
  • Thomas: Looks like James and Diesel got in a paint mess!
  • Duck: They now look like two stripped engines!
  • Stepney: And they look like two engines with more than one soild color!
  • Narrator: And Thomas, Duck and Stepney laughed. After James and Diesel were cleaned, they were at the sheds. But I think they deserved their punishment, don't you?
