  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin A Bad Day For Sir Handel)
  • George Carlin: Skarloey and Rheneas worked on the mountain that leads through the leaves lakes, and along mountain sides. Their coaches are full of visitors. The engines are proud to run the line, come rain or shine. The engines will never let their passengers down, but they are old, and they tire more easily. their drivers understood this, and they spoke kindly to them.
  • Drivers: There's more than enough work for both of you on this railway. The manager is sending two more engines to help us run the road.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey and Rheneas were pleased with this news, and promised to give the new engines a big welcome. When Sir Handel and Peter Sam arrived, they found that they had much to learn.
  • Sir Handel: What a small shed!
  • George Carlin: Grunted Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: This won't do at all. We're much too good for this old shack.
  • Peter Sam: I think it's nice.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Sir Handel: Humph.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: What's that rubbish?
  • Peter Sam: Shhh.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: That's Skarloey. He's famous.
  • George Carlin: And then he whispered to Skarloey.
  • Peter Sam: I'm sorry, Skarloey: Sir Handel is upset now, but he's quite nice, really.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey felt sorry for Peter Sam.
  • Fireman: Now, Sir Handel,
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman.
  • Fireman: I will get you ready for work.
  • Sir Handel: I'm tired! Let Peter Sam go he'd love it!
  • Fireman: No, you're first.
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel huffed to fetch his coaches. He didn't like the look of them at all.
  • Sir Handel: What ever next? Those aren't coaches, they're cattle cars!
  • Coaches: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the coaches.
  • Coaches: What a horrid engine!
  • Sir Handel: It's not what I'm used to.
  • George Carlin: Clanked Sir Handel. He rolled to the platform just as Gordon arrived.
  • Sir Handel: Hello, who are you?
  • Gordon: I'm Gordon, who are you?
  • Sir Handel: I'm Sir Handel. I've heard of you. You're an express engine. So am I, but I'm used to new coaches, not these cattle cars. Do you have new coaches? I see you do. We must have a chat. Sorry, I can't stop. We must keep time you know.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was speechless! Clouds of steam filled the air as Sir Handel huffed and puffed along the line. He was still cross when they reached the top station. Sir Handel was hoping for a rest, but his driver thought otherwise.
  • Driver: We'll leave the coaches now, and fetch some cars from the quarry.
  • Sir Handel: Cars?
  • George Carlin: Snorted Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: Cars? I won't, so there!
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel was about to cause a great deal of trouble.
  • (Sir Handel comes off the rails)
  • Sir Handel: Told you!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel. By the time workmen came to rescue him, Sir Handel was feeling rather silly. To make matters worse, there stood Sir Topham Hatt. His message to Sir Handel was brief and blunt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I shall talk to you later!
  • George Carlin: Then he and the fireman left with Peter Sam. Sir Handel felt sillier still.
  • Driver: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's get you back on the rails.
  • George Carlin: When Sir Handel crawled home, he found Sir Topham Hatt waiting for him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're a very naughty engine! I hope I can trust you to behave when you next come out of this shed.
  • George Carlin: After hearing that, I'm sure Sir Handel will. Aren't you?
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Rock N Roll)
  • George Carlin: Skarloey the Little Engine loves all the sights and sounds along his line and knows them very well. One morning, soon after he returned from being mended, he was enjoying his journey more than ever before. Along the way, he met Rusty.
  • Skarloey: You know...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Skarloey: If I couldn't see those familiar faces and places, I think I was on a different railway. You've done wonders with these rails.
  • George Carlin: Rusty laughed.
  • Rusty: I'm glad you're pleased. Manager says let's mend the tracks so well that he don't know where he is. And we did, and you didn't if you take my meaning.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey liked this hard working diesel.
  • Rusty: There's still one more bad bit.
  • George Carlin: Warned Rusty just before the first station.
  • Rusty: An engine might come off there particularly Duncan. He will Rock N Roll along the line. Look at him right now. I hope he doesn't hurt his passengers.
  • Duncan: What's that about me? I'm a plain engine and I believe in plain speaking. Speak up!
  • George Carlin: Rusty warned Duncan about the bad bit of rails.
  • Duncan: Huh! I know my way about. I don't need smelly diesels to tell me what to do.
  • George Carlin: Rusty felt hurt. Duncan banged about the yard. Then, he clattered crossly to the station. James was already there waiting for him.
  • James: You're late!
  • George Carlin: He snapped.
  • Duncan: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Duncan.
  • Duncan: It's that smelly Diesel's fault. Rusty tries to teach me how to stay on the rails and then goes off leaving me to find my own coaches.
  • James: You poor engine.
  • George Carlin: Sympathized James.
  • James: I know all about Diesels. One crept into our yard and ordered us about. I soon sent him packing.
  • George Carlin: Duncan was filled with admiration. He didn't know that James was boastful and sometimes didn't tell the truth.
  • Duncan: Send Rusty packing, send Rusty packing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Duncan. He climbed a hill furiously.
  • Duncan's Driver: Well done, boy.
  • George Carlin: Encouraged his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: Keep it up.
  • George Carlin: Soon they were near the first station. Duncan was pleased.
  • Duncan: Nothing's happened, nothing's happened. Silly old diesel, clever me.
  • George Carlin: And he rocked and rolled along the line.
  • Duncan's Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Checked his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Duncan comes off the rails in the process)
  • Duncan: Sleepers and ballast! I'm off.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Rusty: I warned him.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: But all he did was call me names.
  • George Carlin: The little diesel refused to move.
  • Skarloey: I'm ashamed of you Rusty.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Think of the passengers what are they going to do?
  • Rusty: Oh, I've forgotten them. Yes of course, we must help the passengers.
  • George Carlin: And Rusty roared into life. Duncan stood sad and solitary. He couldn't Rock N Roll now.
  • Duncan: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Duncan: Everyone will know how silly I am.
  • George Carlin: The passengers had to get out and help too. They weren't very pleased about that but worked as hard as they could.
  • (The passengers lift Duncan back on the rails)
  • George Carlin: They carefully leavened Duncan back onto the line. After that, Duncan was extra careful all day. At last, evening came.
  • Duncan: Rusty.
  • George Carlin: He whispered.
  • Duncan: Thank you for helping. I'm sorry I was rude to you.
  • Rusty: That's all right, Duncan.
  • Duncan: I wish all diesels were like you. Let's be friends.
  • Rusty: Suits me.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rusty.
  • Rusty: We'll mend that bad bit of rails first thing tomorrow.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Put Upon Percy)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy puffed grumpily into the yards. He was feeling put upon and said so.
  • Percy: I feel put upon.
  • Alec Baldwin: He complained to Thomas. Thomas was confused.
  • Thomas: Put upon what? The rails?
  • Percy: No, put upon with work. Driver says he is too.
  • Thomas: Put upon. What a silly saying.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas. But Annie and Clarabel liked it and they sang about it, too.
  • Annie and Clarabel: (singing) Percy's been put upon, put upon, put upon. Percy's been put upon, poor old Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy is being put upon.
  • Percy: I am, I am, I am.
  • Alec Baldwin: He collected metal from the foundry, coal from the yards, flour from the mills, rock from the quarries and fuel from the depot. Then he delivered it all to the docks. Next he collected some empty freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Who's this dirty little engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: We want Thomas or Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy ignored them.
  • Percy: Put upon, put upon. That's what I am.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night all the engines laughed at him.
  • Thomas: We can see what's put upon you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy, you done a good day's work. Now get a good night's rest.
  • Percy: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, he took some freight cars to the coal yards. Then he had to push some empty freight cars to the mine shaft. When he arrived, there was trouble. The foreman spoke to his driver.
  • Foreman: The freight cars are stuck in the mechanism. All they need is a good push.
  • Percy's Driver: We'll do it right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy shunted back to were a large canvas barrier was used to protect his line from loose rocks. Percy charged into the line of freight cars too fast and too hard.
  • Percy: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Percy. The freight cars broke free, but ran out of control to the mines below.
  • Freight Cars: On, on, faster, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: The silly freight cars yelled. Then there was trouble again.
  • (The freight cars hit the pole and we hear a siren and the mine rumbling)
  • Miner: Get out of here fast! The mine's collapsing!
  • (The mine explodes with impact)
  • Percy's Driver: We'll just have to make a run for it, Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • Percy: There's going to be an avalanche!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. And he was right. Worse still, the track he was on began to crumble.
  • Percy: Oh, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. Then he remembered something he had seen earlier.
  • Percy: There's the canvas barrier by the track. That might save us.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were just in time.
  • (The avalanche starts to bury Percy completely)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was right. The canvas did indeed save them, but the miners didn't know that.
  • Foreman: The avalanche has buried an engine and its crew.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted the foreman.
  • Foreman: We must help them.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy had been rescued, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to his driver and fireman then to Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Driver told me how brave you were, Percy. As a reward you will be repainted at the works.
  • Percy: Oh thank you, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When he returned, Percy's coat glistened in the sun.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I teased you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You were certainly put upon by that avalanche.
  • Percy: Yes indeed. But just look at my new coat of paint. Now I don't mind that being put upon me.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bulldog)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Percy was impatience. He was wearing a new coat of paint and long for everyone to see it. The other engines were still dozing, but not Percy.
  • Percy: Driver should be here by now. What's he doing?
  • Gordon: Sleeping.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: But that means I'll be late. The coaches will be waiting and the passengers will get cross.
  • Henry: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • James: It's still early.
  • George Carlin: Added James.
  • James: You just wanna showoff.
  • Percy: No I don't.
  • Thomas: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: It'll soon be time for work, but be careful, or you might run into danger and Duke is not here to save you.
  • Toby: D-D-Duke?
  • George Carlin: Stuttered Toby.
  • Toby: You mean our hero?
  • George Carlin: A large painting of Duke hung on the engine shed.
  • Thomas: The very same.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Driver told me the story. Listen.
  • George Carlin: And this is the story Thomas told them. Long ago, when Peter Sam was still called Stuart and Sir Handel Falcon, they worked with Duke on his own railway, but Falcon still had a lot to learn. The manager came to see him.
  • Manager: Falcon, I'm pleased with your work so far. Now you must learn the difficult part of the line. We call it "The Mountain Road".
  • George Carlin: Falcon was excited.
  • Falcon: Yes please, sir.
  • Manager: So tomorrow, when you have a new coat of paint, you will go on it. Duke will explain everything.
  • Falcon: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Thought Falcon.
  • Falcon: Duke's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Next day came.
  • Duke: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Warned Duke.
  • Duke: The mountain road is difficult. I'll lead.
  • Falcon: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: I'll lead. How can I learn the road with you lumbering ahead and blocking the view?
  • Duke: Suit yourself.
  • George Carlin: Said Duke.
  • Duke: But never mind the view. Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: The engines set off.
  • Duke: Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke.
  • Duke: Never mind the view.
  • Falcon: Fusspot, fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: Fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy.
  • George Carlin: The engines' speed grew slower and slower.
  • Falcon: Don't dawdle, don't dawdle!
  • George Carlin: Urged Falcon.
  • Duke: No hurry, no hurry.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke. Soon they approach the tunnel. Falcon didn't like the tunnel. It was curved and he couldn't see.
  • Falcon: I wanna get out! I wanna get out!
  • George Carlin: He sighed. One moment, everything seemed safe. But then suddenly...
  • (Falcon falls into the edge)
  • George Carlin: Falcon was derailed and hung dangerously over the edge. Duke bravely held on with all of his strength.
  • Falcon: Stop shaking!
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Falcon: I can't hold you if you shake!
  • George Carlin: Duke's driver and fireman work quickly to make the two engines safe again. Then came more trouble.
  • Fireman: Water!
  • George Carlin: Cried Duke's fireman.
  • Fireman: Duke needs water quickly!
  • George Carlin: Luckily there was the workers' cottage nearby. Soon everyone was passing jugs, buckets, kettles and saucepans filled with water until Duke's first was quenched. All the while, Duke was building more strength. At last, when everyone's help, he was able to pull Falcon back on to the rails.
  • (Duke pulls Falcon back on the rails)
  • George Carlin: Then they started off once more. The manager was waiting at the top station. He apologized with the accident.
  • Passengers: Your Duke...
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: Is a hero! He stern firmed like a bulldog and wouldn't let go.
  • George Carlin: Falcon was grateful too.
  • Falcon: Thank you for saving me, Duke. I didn't know you bothered after I've been so rude.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duke.
  • Duke: You just had a new coat of paint. It wouldn't been a pity if you rolled down the mountain and spoiled it.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Four Little Engines)
  • George Carlin: If you should visit the place that has a lake in the woods and a beautiful waterfall, then you may also find two little engines called Skarloey and Rheneas. The engines know everybody and everybody knows that. There are two more engines: Sir Handel and Peter Sam. They used to be called Stuart and Falcon, but they like they're new names better. One day, Sir Topham Hatt send Edward to the works to be mended. A big surprise awaited Edward.
  • Edward: It's Skarloey. What's he doing here?
  • George Carlin: Skarloey was pleased to see Edward.
  • Skarloey: I've been sent here for a rest.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Skarloey: I was put in the shed so I can see everything and not be lonely. But I do miss Rheneas. He's going to be mended. I wish I can be mended too, and pull coaches again.
  • George Carlin: Just then, some workmen arrived.
  • Workman: We're going to take you to the works now, Edward. Come along.
  • Edward: Goodbye, Skarloey. Your railway's a lovely line.
  • Skarloey: Oh, it is, it is! You cheered me up, Edward. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile, Sir Handel was having trouble with some coaches. He tried to be kind, but the coaches didn't trust him. They were awkward and rude. There was worst to come. Some careless sheep stray on to the line.
  • Coaches: He's bumped us!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the coaches.
  • Coaches: Let's get back at him!
  • George Carlin: They serge into Sir Handel and pushed him off the rails. No one was hurt, but Sir Handel limped sadly to the shed.
  • Driver: No more work for you, today.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: How are we going to pull the visitors' train without an engine?
  • Skarloey: What about me, sir?
  • Driver: Skarloey, can you do it?
  • Skarloey: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said the old engine. The coaches stood at the platform.
  • Skarloey: I'm ashamed of you.
  • George Carlin: Scolded Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You might have hurt your passengers.
  • George Carlin: The coaches quivered.
  • Coaches: We're sorry, Skarloey.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle, and they're journey began. Skarloey remembered all the gates and styles where he had to stop. The sun shone and the rails were dry.
  • Skarloey: This is lovely.
  • George Carlin: Sanged Skarloey. Presently, the line grew steep. Skarloey felt short of steam.
  • Driver: Take your time.
  • George Carlin: Soothed his driver.
  • Skarloey: It'll be better down hill.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey said to himself. But it wasn't. His springs were weak, and the rail joints jarred his wheels. At last, a spring gave weigh.
  • Skarloey: I feel all crooked!
  • George Carlin: Cried Skarloey.
  • Driver: We'll need a bus now for our passengers.
  • George Carlin: Sighed his driver.
  • Skarloey: No!
  • George Carlin: Pleaded Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: I'll get them to the station or burst.
  • George Carlin: James was waiting on the platform. Clanging and clanking, Skarloey steamed in.
  • Skarloey: I'll do it, I'll do it. I've done it.
  • George Carlin: James collected his passengers and respectfully puffed away. Everyone was pleased with Skarloey, but he was still worried.
  • Skarloey: Old engines can't pull trains like the young ones can.
  • Driver: They can if they're mended, old faithful.
  • George Carlin: Smiled his driver.
  • Driver: And that's what gonna happen to you. You deserved it.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Cranky Bugs)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy enjoyed working at the docks. They like to see air and the sound of the gulls. But one day, the friends were feeling hot and bothered. A crane was causing trouble. His name was Cranky and this was his first day at the docks.
  • Cranky: You're useless little bugs!
  • Alec Baldwin: He called from above.
  • Cranky: If you put these freight cars on the inside lines then I wouldn't have so far to travel.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: No crane has ever complained before.
  • Cranky: Well I'm complaining now.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Cranky banged his load down on the keyside. Later, the two engines met Gordon and James and told them about Cranky.
  • Gordon: Cranes are nearly fairy things they need a lot of attention like me in fact.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • James: You should see the situation from Cranky's point of view.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • James: He's high up in the air coping with wind, rain and making sun. Then he looks down and sees you two little engines being annoying. No wonder he calls you bugs.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Cranky heard that the big engines agreed with him, he grew bossier still.
  • Cranky: Come on, come on. Push those freight cars closer to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Percy was too upset to concentrate and pushed the freight cars too far. Poor Percy. Then, Cranky played a trick on Thomas.
  • Cranky: Push your freight cars onto the outside line. It's easier for me to load up.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Thomas did. But Cranky left the load beside the freight cars, not in them.
  • Cranky: You must have known my arm can't reach you there.
  • Alec Baldwin: Complained Cranky. This mix up caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt was most upset.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy, this new crane has an important job to do. I have heard that you not been helping him today. You will go to your sheds and consider how you improve yourselves tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Now Thomas and Percy were upset too. That evening, a big storm raged across the island. Cranky and the engines were trapped in the docks.
  • Duck: We're sure to be safe in the sheds.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck. But he was wrong. The engines had no idea they were about to be put in great danger by an old tramp steamer. It was running out of control and into a ground straight into the sheds.
  • (The old tramp steamer crashes into the shed)
  • Cranky: (screams)
  • (Cranky lands onto the ground with a loud Kuh-Thud)
  • Henry, James, Duck and Gordon: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called the engines from inside the shed.
  • Cranky: I can't!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Cranky. When the storm was over, Sir Topham Hatt rushed into the scene of the destruction.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy will help you.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called to Cranky.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And then you can help the engines.
  • Cranky: Oh, please, hurry!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Cranky.
  • Cranky: And tell them I'm sorry I was rude to them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So it was you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I know those engines an apology.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy soon came to the rescue. And it wasn't too long before Cranky was upright again and clearing the wreckage. At last, all the engines were free.
  • Gordon: Oh, thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: What would I've done without you?
  • Cranky: Well I had to be rescued before I help you. But i never I would be by a couple of, bu-bu...
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky was about to say bugs but he quickly corrected himself.
  • Cranky: Uh, small engines thank you. I'll never be rude again. However you two mites are in my way so move over.
  • Percy: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: He's back to bugging us.
  • Thomas: Don't move! You're still attatched to Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late.
  • (Cranky lands on the rails once again)
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky still looks down at the two little engines. But ever since that stormy night, he never calls them bugs or mights, because he knows they might bite back.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Passengers and Polish)
  • George Carlin: Nancy is the conductor's daughter. One day she was working with Skarloey with some polish and a rag. Skarloey was snoozing happily but Nancy wanted to talk.
  • Nancy: Wake up, lazybones. Your brass is filthy. Aren't you ashamed?
  • Skarloey: No.
  • George Carlin: Yawned Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You're just an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: And Skarloey closed his eyes. He was thinking about his friend Rheneas, and all the good times they had shared before Rheneas was away to be mended. Nancy interrupted again.
  • Nancy: Don't you wanna look nice when Rheneas comes home?
  • George Carlin: Skarloey wasn't sleepy anymore?
  • Skarloey: What? When?
  • Nancy: Soon, daddy told me. I'm going now.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Skarloey: Nancy, stop. Do I really look nice? Please, polish me again.
  • Nancy: Now who's an old fusspot?
  • George Carlin: Laughed Nancy and set to work once time. Duncan was jealous.
  • Duncan: Aren't you gonna polish me too?
  • Nancy: Sorry, not today. I'm going now. I'm helping the Refreshment Lady this afternoon. We must get the ice cream ready for the passengers. Never mind, Duncan.
  • George Carlin: But Duncan did mind.
  • Duncan: It isn't fair!
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duncan: Peter Sam gets a special funnel, Sir Handel gets special wheels, passengers get ice cream, but I'm not even polished.
  • George Carlin: Of course this wasn't true, but Duncan enjoyed complaining. He became sulkier still. That afternoon, there was bad news above the line.
  • Driver: One of Skarloey's coaches has come off the rails.
  • George Carlin: Called Duncan's driver.
  • Driver: We'll have to take workmen here right away.
  • Duncan: All this extra work!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Duncan.
  • Duncan: It wear's an engine out!
  • Driver: Rubbish! Come on!
  • George Carlin: The derailed coach was in a middle of Skarloey's train, so he had gone out top the top station with his front coaches. Duncan shunted the work's trains to the sidings and left the workmen sorted out the mess. Then he brought the passengers and rear coaches home. He sulked all the way.
  • Duncan: I get no rest, I get no rest.
  • George Carlin: He muttered. Duncan had made a journey very difficult. He was short of steam so his driver waited a while and hope of raising more. But Duncan wouldn't try.
  • Driver: We'll keep our passengers waiting.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Duncan was cross.
  • Duncan: You always think about the passengers and never about me!
  • George Carlin: It wasn't long before Duncan built up enough steam and set off again. But he was still very grumpy and cross.
  • Duncan: I'm overworked, and I won't stand it!
  • George Carlin: At last they reached the viaduct near the station.
  • Driver: Come on, Duncan!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver.
  • Driver: One more effort, and you'll have a rest and drink in the station.
  • George Carlin: Then Duncan was very rude.
  • Duncan: Keep your old station. I'm staying here.
  • George Carlin: And he did too. Skarloey had to haul Duncan and his train all the way to the platform. The passengers were furious. They told everyone what a bad railway it was.
  • (Passengers arguing)
  • Man: We're losing money!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No passengers means no polish.
  • Duncan: And no polish means no passengers.
  • George Carlin: Duncan muttered to himself. He still has a lot to learn, doesn't he?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Stepney Gets Lost)
  • Alec Baldwin: Stepney the Bluebell Engine works closely with his friend Rusty. One day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Rusty tells me you're in need of a change. So I want you to help Toby and Mavis at the quarry.
  • Stepney: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Stepney.
  • Stepney: Shall I be away long?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Just today. But please be careful. It is easy to get lost up there so be back before dark.
  • Stepney's Driver: We will.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the driver. Stepney soon arrived at the quarry.
  • Toby: We're glad you're here to help us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Stepney: Are these my cars?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Stepney.
  • Mavis: Only some of them. There's masses more in the sidings.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Mavis.
  • Stepney: The more the merrier.
  • Alec Baldwin: Stepney was really enjoying himself. The dustier he became, the harder he worked. Mavis and Toby were impressed. Then the foreman spoke to his driver.
  • Foreman: We have a night special to take to building site at the new branch line. Do you want to pull the train?
  • Stepney's Driver: Yes please.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the driver. But he should have asked Sir Topham Hatt first. Night came.
  • Toby: Be careful, Stepney.
  • Alec Baldwin: Advised Toby.
  • Stepney: I will and thank you for a lovely day. I do hope i can come back again.
  • Mavis: The line can be spooky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Stepney: Thank you for the warning.
  • Alec Baldwin: And with that, Stepney puffed away. Stepney arrived on time and made the delivery of rocks and stones for the workmen. Then he set off for home. That's when the trouble began. The fog came down.
  • Stepney: Mavis was right. Suddenly, everything does look spooky.
  • Stepney's Driver: There's a signalbox.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • Stepney's Driver: And the signal light is green. Someone must have been expecting us.
  • Alec Baldwin: But they weren't. The points had been set in the wrong direction, but Stepney didn't realize this.
  • Stepney: Home here we come.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then they approached an unknown area. The driver made a decision.
  • Stepney's Driver: It's best if we rest here until the fog clears.
  • Stepney: What are those strange sounds?
  • Alec Baldwin: Wondered Stepney. Then the fog slowly lifted.
  • Stepney: Oh, no. We're in the scrapyards.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman went for help. Stepney was all alone, but not for long. Two diesels approached.
  • Arry: Got ya this time, Stepney, you'll make very fine scrap indeed. Buffer him, Bert.
  • Alec Baldwin: The diesels took him to the large smelter shed.
  • Arry: Bye bye, Stepney. (laughs)
  • Alec Baldwin: Stepney looked up. Above him was a huge grabber.
  • Stepney: This engine's not for scrapping!
  • Alec Baldwin: The grabber wasn't listening. But just as it was about to grab hold of him, it stopped. There stood Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's a good thing I'm visiting this yard tonight. Saving you from scrap is becoming a habit, Stepney, please stop it.
  • Stepney: Yes, sir. But I had learned something.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's that?
  • Stepney: There's no place like home.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And that's exactly where you're going now.
  • Stepney: Bluebells forever.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James and The Trouble With Trees)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas the Tank Engine had been working in the coal yards all day. The little blue engine was covered in coal dust.
  • Thomas' Driver: We can't clean you up tonight, Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: There's a problem with the hose pipe.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: A bath would make me feel much better. The others are sure to say I look silly.
  • Alec Baldwin: But the engines were too busy arguing to notice Thomas. James was talking loudest of all.
  • James: I deserve a new coat of paint. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm the pride of the line and...
  • Henry: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: We're all the pride of the line.
  • Percy: It's been like this all day.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Percy to Thomas.
  • Percy: James is getting a new coat of paint and won't stop boasting about it.
  • Thomas: Why, James! I'm the one who needs a new coat. Look at me.
  • James: I rather not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Retorted James.
  • James: You're not a pleasant sight and wouldn't understand that needs of a really important engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was fuming. Next morning as James was being repainted, Henry had an accident.
  • (Henry causes the cars to derail)
  • James: If you can't push cars properly, Henry, why not talk to a tree instead. You know how much you like the forest.
  • Henry: As a matter of fact, bossy boiler, Sir Topham Hatt is inspecting the island for trees that have fallen too close to the line. He's worried that might cause trouble.
  • James: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed James.
  • James: If I came upon a tree I just push it aside.
  • Henry: Really!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry replied. Soon, James was showing off his paintwork.
  • James: Make way for an important engine.
  • Percy: You wouldn't feel important if one of those trees crashed on you. You feel hurt.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reproached Percy.
  • James: Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!
  • Terence: You should be careful, James. Trees can be just as powerful as engines.
  • Alec Baldwin: Advised Terence.
  • James: Oh please! Now excuse me, Sir Topham Hatt needs me to pull the express.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he huffed away. But James was wrong.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the yards and collect an important goods train James. It's heavy so be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: But, sir, I've just been repainted. Can't Thomas and Percy do it? They're dirty and like working with freight cars.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Really useful engines don't argue.
  • Alec Baldwin: So James didn't. By the time he arrived at the yards, the weather was changed for the worse.
  • Freight Car: Your color's nice, James. Pity about your face though.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said a freight car. James ignored them and set off. Soon they came to a hill and his driver knew they were in for a difficult time. An old tree close to the tracks was being blown by the strong winds and the rain had weakened the slope. All of a sudden, the tree moved.
  • (James sees the tree ahead and comes to a halt)
  • James: Oh help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried James.
  • James: Go away!
  • Alec Baldwin: But of course, the tree couldn't. James tried to reverse away from the tree but his train was too heavy. Then he heard a whistle.
  • James' Driver: It's Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver. James felt embarrassed and worried that Thomas would laugh at him, but Thomas didn't. He knew it was no time for teasing.
  • Thomas: Peep, peep! I'm ready!
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled Thomas.
  • James: So am I.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied James.
  • James: As ready as I'll ever be.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were just in time.
  • (The tree lands on the ground with a loud wham!)
  • Alec Baldwin: Later, James spoke to Thomas.
  • James: Percy and Terence were so right to warn me. Thank you for rescuing me, Thomas.
  • Thomas: Oh, that's all right. We engines have to pull together whatever the weather.
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, Edward bustled in.
  • Edward: Sir Topham Hatt thinks you're both brave engines. Thomas, you're going to have a new coat of paint, and James, Sir Topham Hatt says that tomorrow you'll pull the special express.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone was very happy.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Snow)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was wintertime on the Island of Sodor. The snow covered fields and railway lines. All the engines were hard at work, except Percy.
  • Thomas: Come on, Percy, this is no time to have a rest.
  • Percy: I'm stuck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Moaned Percy.
  • Percy: And my funnel's freezing up. Driver's gone for help.
  • Thomas: Hah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Thomas and went on his way. Later, Thomas had to help clear snow by a tunnel. But it was too deep and he got stuck. Thomas was very cross.
  • Thomas: Snow is nothing but trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: He moaned. Rusty was close by.
  • Rusty: Driver says this winter is as bad as the worse winter of all.
  • Thomas: How worse?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Rusty: I'll tell you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Rusty and then the little engine did. Skarloey was working the line to the slate mine in the mountains. When the snow came, it was difficult to work. They used the snow as a double buffer zone to help stop cars skidding through the ravine. One day, Skarloey set off to the mine with some empty cars. Meanwhile, there was trouble at the mine. The winch that holds the cars up and down wasn't working properly. Skarloey had reached the ravine. High above him were the mine yards.
  • Skarloey's Driver: That snow looks dangerous.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Skarloey's Driver: The sound of your engine and the freight cars could cause an avalanche. I'll set up an emergency cap and see what happens.
  • Alec Baldwin: Skarloey watched as the driver prepared it. Then they ran over the cap.
  • (Boom!)
  • Alec Baldwin: The bang echoed around the gorge. Nothing happened.
  • Skarloey's Driver: Good.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Skarloey's Driver: All's well. We'll have a cup of cocoa and then make our way.
  • Alec Baldwin: But high above them, all was not well. A long line of full cars was about be winched down the slope. They had just started their journey when some empty cars became derailed. The winch groaned.
  • Freight Cars: Break it, snap it.
  • Rusty: Shouted the freight cars and they did.
  • Freight Cars: On, on, faster, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: They giggled.
  • Workman: The snowbank and buffers will stop them.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said a workman. But he was wrong. The freight cars plunged into the ravine. Skarloey and his driver heard the noise and looked up.
  • Skarloey's Driver: Avalanche!
  • Alec Baldwin: They cried.
  • (The avalanche starts to bury Skarloey completely)
  • Alec Baldwin: When the snow ploomed clear, there was no sign of Skarloey. He was buried deep inside the high drift blocking the ravine.
  • Rusty: And then came the funny part.
  • Thomas: What's the funny part about an avalanche?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Rusty: Well...
  • Alec Baldwin: No one knew that the heat from Skarloey's engine had helped to make an igloo.
  • Man #1: It's a snowball.
  • Man #2: It's a snowhouse.
  • Man #3: It's an engine!
  • Alec Baldwin: They cleared away the ice only to find Skarloey's driver and fireman drinking hot cocoa as if nothing had happened.
  • Thomas: Lucky for him. But it just goes to show you can't trust freight cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Rusty: Or snow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Rusty. The men had just cleared the snow away from him when Gordon puffed by with his machine.
  • Gordon: Hey look out, there's snow about.
  • Alec Baldwin: He stopped by the tunnel and wheeshed loudly. Then it happened.
  • Gordon: Oh no.
  • (The avalanche falls on top of Gordon, completely burying him)
  • Gordon: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Gordon.
  • Thomas: If Skarloey survived the snowfall, surely a big proud engine like you can do the same.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Moaned Gordon from within and then fell as silent as the snow.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gordon and The Gremlin)
  • Alec Baldwin: Early one morning, Gordon's fire would not light.
  • Firelighter: I don't know what's wrong.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the firelighter.
  • Firelighter: There must be gremlins about.
  • Percy: What are gremlins?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy.
  • Thomas: I've heard that they're little green men who play tricks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Percy: Can we find one?
  • James: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • James: Gremlins don't exist. They're just an excuse when things go wrong.
  • Thomas: If firelighter says there are gremlins, there are.
  • James: Hah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James. Sir Topham Hatt had heard everything.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am expecting a VIP, a very important person today. She is heard that all my engines are really useful. Please prove it.
  • Engines: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: They all said.
  • Percy: As long as the gremlins let us.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What gremlins.
  • Percy: The ones in Gordon's fire, sir, that's why he's not ready yet.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll see about that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thundered Sir Topham Hatt and he did.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon, I expect you'd be on your best behavior today. You were to pull the special coach from my special visitor. But no high speeds, please, she won't like that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was proud and pleased. He was waiting for his special coach when Percy puffed in with some freight cars.
  • Percy: What's the matter, Gordon, you're late.
  • Gordon: Driver says there's gremlins in the turntables.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Gordon.
  • Percy: They must be everywhere!
  • Alec Baldwin: Squeaked Percy. At last, the turntable was mended and Gordon puffed away with the special coach. He was soon working hard to make up for lost time. After he arrived at the station, Sir Topham Hatt became concerned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where's Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: He wondered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He's supposed to be bringing my visitor to the docks.
  • Gordon: Hah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Thomas isn't really useful is he's late.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it wasn't long before Thomas arrived.
  • Thomas: (pants) I'm sorry. (pants) A cow strayed on the line and we had to wait for the farmer to take her away. But driver says your visitor is here safe and sound.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Indeed she is.
  • Alec Baldwin: Smiled Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: How nice to see you.
  • Percy: Who is it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Percy.
  • Thomas: I don't know.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: But Sir Topham Hatt is certainly keen to please her. He's a arranged a special party for her.
  • Percy: She's got a dog as well.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Gremlin: (barks)
  • Thomas' Driver: Come on, Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: You need a drink.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Thomas is just a lazy little engine. Sir Topham Hatt is expecting me to arrive on time. We're late because of Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon's driver decided to make up for lost time. Then, there was trouble.
  • Gordon's Driver: I think we better slow down. This is an old line that could make things uncomfortable for the VIP.
  • Alec Baldwin: And it did. She was taking a bath and the water was slopping all over the place.
  • Dowager Hatt: (groans)
  • Alec Baldwin: She cried. Gordon was very relieved to reach his final destination where Thomas was waiting to collect Sir Topham Hatt and his special visitor. He blew an extra long whistle. (Gordon's whistle tooting) This frightened the visitor's dog so much that he fled from the station and ran into a field where a bull was grazing.
  • Bull: (roaring)
  • Alec Baldwin: The bull frightened the little dog even more. He ran back again onto the platform and over the bridge.
  • Gremlin: (barking)
  • Alec Baldwin: He didn't stop until he jumped straight into Thomas' cab.
  • Gremlin: (barks)
  • Alec Baldwin: But he had a wonderful ride all the way to the docks.
  • Thomas' Fireman: What's the dog's name?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the fireman.
  • Dowager Hatt: Well, after today's events, I think I'll rename him Gremlin.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt chuckled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: In that case, I've met one at last. Ha ha.
  • Thomas: Excuse me, sir, but who is your very important visitor?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why didn't I tell you? This lady is my mother and she agrees with me. You are indeed really useful engines and my mother of course is always right. (laughs)
  • (Following the last story, we go to the outro with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While the end credits roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (Afterwards, the A Britt Allcroft Production logo appears as we end this video)
