Script

  • (We see a CGI Thomas puffing along a bridge. When he is gone, the Thomas and Friends logo and the Making Tracks To Great Destinations text appear)
  • 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 surronded 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 getting into trouble in the snow. But first, Percy hears some worrying news at Tidmouth Sheds.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Percy's Big Mistake)
  • Michael Brandon: Percy is a little green engine who can shunt and pull. He pulls both passengers and freight, at the docks, and at the quarry. Percy's favorite job is carrying the mail. But sometimes Percy has so much to do, he ends up running late. One evening, Percy arrived late at Brendam Docks.
  • Dock Manager: You're late again, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the dock manager.
  • Dock Manager: I will have to speak to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was upset. Percy returned to Tidmouth Sheds. The other engines were already asleep. Then Percy heard voices on the other side of the sheds. It was Sir Topham Hatt and he was talking to Percy's driver. Percy tried not to listen, but he couldn't help himself.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy has been late too often this week.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He must go to the scrap yards tomorrow.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt wants to scrap me.
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Percy. Percy worried all night long. The next morning, the sun shone and the birds sang, but Percy was too upset to notice.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt wants to scrap me.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Percy: And all because I was late.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt wouldn't scrap a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And you, Percy, are a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy felt better-- until he noticed the time.
  • Percy: I'm going to be late.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried. Percy wheeshed away. If he was on time, maybe Sir Topham Hatt wouldn't send him to the scrap yards. Percy's first job was collecting pipes from Brendam Docks. But when he arrived, Cranky was still unloading.
  • Percy: Hurry up, slow-coach.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Percy.
  • Percy: I must be on time!
  • Cranky: I'll take as long as I like.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Cranky, and he went slower than ever. The moment Cranky had finished, Percy took off. He hadn't waited for the pipes to be tied down. Percy rounded the bend. The pipes slipped and fell all over the track, but Percy puffed on. Percy thought he had delivered the pipes, so he chuffed away to his next job. Percy was to take some tar wagons to the workmen mending the roads.
  • Driver: Be careful.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Tar is sticky stuff.
  • Michael Brandon: But Percy wasn't being careful. He was going too fast. Percy charged down Gordon's Hill. He didn't see Gordon and the Express until it was too late. The brake van passed Gordon, but the tar wagons didn't.
  • (Crash!)
  • Michael Brandon: Luckily no one was hurt. But Gordon was very cross.
  • Gordon: Now look what you've done.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Gordon: What will Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • Michael Brandon: Percy thought he knew.
  • Percy: Oh no.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Percy: I'm sure to be scrapped now.
  • Michael Brandon: And so Percy decided to run away. Harvey was clearing away the tar wagons when Sir Topham Hatt arrived aboard Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where is Percy?
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He has caused confusion and delay.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon didn't know.
  • Gordon: Uh, he's just left very quickly. sir.
  • Thomas: He heard you at the sheds, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: He thought you were sending him to be scrapped.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I think I need a word with Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must all help me find him.
  • Michael Brandon: And so everyone looked for Percy. They searched high, and they searched low. They looked to and fro, but they couldn't see Percy anywhere.
  • Percy: What's to become of me?
  • Michael Brandon: Percy whispered. But there was no one around to hear. Percy looked very small and felt very lonely. Thomas and Sir Topham Hatt were looking for Percy on Thomas's branch line. Thomas suddenly had an idea.
  • Thomas: I think I know where Percy is, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed back to Tidmouth Sheds as fast as he could. The sheds were very quiet as Thomas rolled into the engine berths.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy?
  • Michael Brandon: Called Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Are you there?
  • Percy: Please don't scrap me, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Percy: I didn't mean to be late or cause trouble.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Scrap you?
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why, the very thought of it!
  • Michael Brandon: And Sir Topham Hatt told Percy what he had really said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I told your driver you had been working too hard and that was why you were late. I had decided that after taking some scrap to the smelters, you were to carry the mail all week!
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was as happy as he had ever been.
  • Percy: Do you really mean it, sir?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy proudly.
  • Percy: The mail for a whole week? Thank you, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Percy couldn't stop himself tooting for joy. Thomas tooted, too. It was good to have his friend back. So Percy carried the mail all week. He wasn't late, and he didn't make a mistake-- not one. And Percy decided never to listen to silly stories ever again-- especially not ones made up by himself.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Every engine on the Island of Sodor looks different. Can you tell who this is? This engine has a tall funnel and a sparkly, shiny dome. What else can we see on this engine? It's the number five. Do you know which engine on Sodor is number five? Here's another clue. This engine is bright and shiny and red. There's only one engine on Sodor who is red. Do you know who it is? That's right-- it's James. Hello, James.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily must go to Cronk station, but she has never been there before. Thomas tells her about all the wonderful things she's going to see.
  • Thomas: First of all.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You go through Knapford station. Then you puff past the old lighthouse. And cross over the iron bridge.
  • Michael Brandon: I wonder if Emily can remember all those places.
  • Emily: Through Knapford station, past the lighthouse, over the iron bridge.
  • Michael Brandon: Then Thomas tells Emily about even more places.
  • Thomas: You chuff up Gordon's Hill, into the castle tunnel, puff past the church and steam through the green valley. Then you arrive at Cronk station.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily is ready to leave. Can you remember where she is going? First, Emily steams through Knapford station. Then she passes the old lighthouse. Was it over or under the iron bridge? That's right-- over the iron bridge. Then she puffs up Gordon's Hill. Then into the castle tunnel. Where is it next? Past the...church-- yes, that's right. Then Emily goes through the valley...and arrives at Cronk station. Did you remember all those places Emily passed? Emily did. Well done, Emily. And well done, Thomas!
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Percy is ready to leave the station. He's busting his buffers with excitement. What's Percy pulling today? Percy pulls out of the station pulling...passengers. Percy pulls out of the station pulling passengers and...pineapples. Now Percy pulls out of the station pulling passengers, pineapples and...a piano. Can you remember what Percy is pulling? Percy pulls out of the station pulling passengers, pineapples and a piano. I wonder what's next. Percy pulls out of the station pulling passengers, pineapples, a piano and...presents. Can you still remember all the things Percy was pulling? Let's see. Percy pulls out of the station pulling...passengers, pineapples, a piano and presents. Can you guess where Percy is going? Percy is puffing his way to a party.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Thomas, Emily and The Snowplough)
  • Michael Brandon: Winter was coming to the island of Sodor. The morning ground was covered in crisp white frost. Thomas and Emily were happily chuffing up and down the line. Thomas was enjoying pulling Annie and Clarabel. He thought he was doing a grand job. But Emily had other ideas. She thought he could be doing an even grander job, so Emily decided to help Thomas by telling him what he was doing wrong. When she saw him puffing down the branch line, she cried out.
  • Emily: Slow down! You're going too fast and bumping your passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Emily saw Thomas by a bridge. He had stopped to take on water and was talking to some children.
  • Emily: Stop talking to the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: You are working and they will make you late.
  • Thomas: I'm never late.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas huffily.
  • Emily: There's always a first time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily cheerfully, and she puffed away. Thomas was cross. He loved talking to children and thought Emily was being a big bossy buffers. Annie and Clarabel agreed.
  • Thomas: I am never going to listen to Emily ever, ever again.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: So there!
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, a sleepy Thomas had to leave Tidmouth Sheds bright and early. He was to collect some freight cars from the quarry and take them to the docks. Later that morning, Sir Topham Hatt arrived with a new weather report.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is snow on the way. You must all have your snowplows fitted.
  • Emily: Excuse me, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: But Thomas has already left for the quarry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then you must find Thomas and tell him Sir Topham Hatt wants him to wear his snowplow.
  • Michael Brandon: So Emily puffed away to get her snowplow fitted. The workmen fixed Emily's snowplow on in no time at all and she set off to find Thomas. Emily was very happy. She was looking forward to telling him what to do. Thomas was taking on water at Maithwaite station. Emily puffed up in front of him. She blew her whistle, but Thomas didn't say hello.
  • Thomas: She just wants to boss me again.
  • Michael Brandon: Grouched Thomas.
  • Emily: Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: She called.
  • Emily: You must go and get your snowplow fitted.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas could hear what Emily was saying, but pretended he couldn't. He thought he was being very clever. So Emily tooted even louder again.
  • Emily: You must go and get your snowplow fitted.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Thomas: Bother snowplows!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And bother Emily! Anyway, the weather is perfectly fine.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed away as fast as he could.
  • Emily: Oh, Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas delivered the freight cars to the quarry. Then set off to collect cream from the dairy. Everything was going well. But soon the clear blue sky was eaten away by dark gray clouds.
  • Driver: They look like snow clouds to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. And he was right. Soon, big flakes of white snow began to fall. Then the snow gathered into drifts and covered the tracks.
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas, as his wheels began to slip. Snow fell all over the island. Emily cut safely through the drifts with her snowplow.
  • Emily: Thomas will be in trouble now.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was right. Thomas was working harder and harder, but he had to go more and more slowly.
  • Driver: We can go on.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Thomas pulled to a slow, sad stop by a signal box. And his driver went for help. It snowed and snowed. Thomas felt very cold and twice as miserable. Then he heard the sound of an engine. Thomas was delighted until he saw who his rescuer was. It was Emily.
  • Emily: I told you to get your snowplow. Now look what's happened.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was still cross.
  • Thomas: You should say sorry for bossing me about.
  • Emily: I am sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Sorry you didn't listen to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily and Thomas chuffed into Tidmouth Sheds. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting. He did not look happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you must take Thomas to get his snowplow fitted at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you must learn to listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt bad. He didn't know it was Sir Topham Hatt who wanted him to wear his snowplow. Emily felt bad, too. She didn't like seeing Thomas in trouble.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Emily: I forgot to tell Thomas it was your idea.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You mean I have two engines that don't listen?
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, I never! Emily, you must take Thomas to get his snowplow fitted at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon the work was finished and Thomas was wearing his snowplow.
  • Thomas: Thank you for owning up.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You are a very good friend.
  • Emily: That's all right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: You are a good friend, too. But next time, if you want to stay out of trouble, just do what I say.
  • Michael Brandon: Even Thomas had to laugh.
  • 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.
