Transcript

  • (We open this DVD with a CGI Thomas passing through the 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 start with the Season 8-10 intro and we then go to the Island of Sodor opening sequence)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surrounded 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! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (A wheesh of steam occurs and we begin Thomas and The Jet Plane)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Jet Plane. Thomas the Tank Engine loves having buffers and a boiler that bubbles. He loves having wheels and a whistle that toots.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: But most of all, Thomas loves working on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. It was the day at the Sodor Summer Picnic. Sir Topham Hatt came with news of a special job for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are to collect the children from the airport and take them to the picnic.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed cheerfully. Thomas was excited. He set off right away. The airport was new and all the engines wanted to go there. Soon, Thomas arrived at the airport. He was excited to see the control tower, the huge hanger and the red and white striped wind sock. Then, he heard a loud noise in the sky. A jet plane was coming into land. Thomas thought it looked very splendid. Thomas chuffed over to the hanger.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas and I'm a tank engine.
  • Jeremy: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the plane.
  • Jeremy: I'm Jeremy. I'm a jet plane.
  • Thomas: It must be wonderful being able to fly.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Jeremy: It is.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Jeremy.
  • Jeremy: I can go anywhere I want. Flying is the most fun in the world.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas thought Jeremy was being boastful.
  • Thomas: I like traveling on tracks.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas huffed.
  • Thomas: I puffed pass farms and villages and see all the wonderful sights of Sodor.
  • Jeremy: Well, from the air, I see the wonderful sights of Sodor all at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Jeremy. Thomas felt upset. Then, he saw the children. They were waiting at the platform. Thomas wheeshed quickly over to collect them.
  • Thomas: I never wanna talk to a jet plane again.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed. Thomas puffed over to the picnic. He was happy to leave the airport behind. But when he turn the bend in the track, he had to stop at a signal. Thomas heard Jeremy taking off. And then, Jeremy flew right over his funnel.
  • Thomas: It's not fair.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Jet planes don't have to stop at signals.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed past the windmill. But Thomas could still see Jeremy. He was now high in the sky. Suddenly, Thomas saw a cow on the tracks in front of him.
  • Thomas: Jet planes don't have to stop for cows.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas huffed sadly. Thomas arrived at the picnic. The blankets were laid out and everyone was having a wonderful time. But Percy thought Thomas was sad.
  • Thomas: Jet planes can go wherever they like. I wish I were a jet plane.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Percy: But engines can pull passengers cars and take children to picnics.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: Engines are really useful.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas wasn't sure. Jeremy was jetting to the mainland. But dark rain clouds were gathering. But Jeremy had to return to the airport. Thomas was passing the airport as Jeremy came into land. Thomas didn't want to talk to him, but Jeremy called out.
  • Jeremy: Thomas! A summer storm is on it's way! The children's picnic will be ruined!
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Thomas.
  • Thomas: I must tell Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas reached the picnic just in time.
  • Thomas: Quick!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: There's a big storm coming! The picnic will be wash away!
  • Michael Brandon: Everyone packed up the picnic as quickly as possible. And then they boarded Annie and Clarabel. The children were sad the picnic was over. Then, another idea flew into Thomas' funnel. He puffed quickly back to the airport. This time, Thomas wanted to talk to Jeremy.
  • Thomas: Please, can the children have their picnic in your hanger?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked.
  • Jeremy: Of course!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Jeremy.
  • Jeremy: What a splendid idea!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was very happy. Soon all the children were having a wonderful time and so was Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas and Jeremy.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Together you have saved the picnic. You are both really useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Jeremy was happy to have help and Thomas had never felt prouder to be a steam engine.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby's New Shed)
  • Michael Brandon: Toby's New Shed. It was a wet and windy day on the Island of Sodor. The engines were working hard. Henry pulled freight. Gordon pulled the express. And Thomas was taking freight cars to Aresdale End. As he arrived, Thomas saw lots of birds chirping. Thomas thought their singing was lovely. Then Thomas saw Toby coming out in the shed.
  • Toby: Good morning, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Toby. Thomas was surprised. Toby was very wet. Toby ranged his bell as he steamed away. Thomas looked at the roof of Toby's shed. It was full of holes.
  • Thomas: Rain must have been dripping on Toby when he was asleep.
  • Michael Brandon: Worried Thomas. Thomas decided to tell Sir Topham Hatt about Toby's roof.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That won't do.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Toby must be given a brand new roof right away.
  • Thomas: Please, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I can collect everything we need.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Then Toby puffed in with Henrietta to pick up some passengers.
  • Thomas: You're going to have a brand new roof, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm off to collect everything we need.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby looked worried. But all his passengers were now on board. And he had to leave.
  • Thomas: I wonder why Toby didn't look very excited?
  • Michael Brandon: Thought Thomas. First, Thomas had to collect the workmen. At Toby's shed, the birds were still chirping. The workmen began to take down the old roof. Thomas met Percy at the junction. Percy was excited.
  • Percy: Look when I'm taking to Farmer McColl's farm.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: It's a new house for his doves.
  • Thomas: We'll I'm helping build a new roof for Toby's shed.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Percy: That's exciting.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: Toby must be very happy!
  • Thomas: He didn't look very happy when I told him.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Percy: Maybe he likes his old roof.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Percy.
  • Thomas: Well, I'm going to show Toby that his new roof will be the best roof ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Later Thomas picked up the lumber for Toby's new roof. He showed it to Toby.
  • Thomas: Look at this lovely new lumber, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Toby looked worried.
  • Thomas: I'm off to Aresdale End.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Thomas.
  • Thomas: So that the workmen can start straight away.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby wanted to say something, but before he could, Thomas whistled.
  • Thomas: I'm sure you'll like it when it's all done.
  • Michael Brandon: And Thomas chuffed away. In no time at all, Toby's roof was finished. Thomas thought it looked lovely.
  • Thomas: Now you have the smartest shed on Sodor, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas proudly. But Toby looks sadder than ever.
  • Thomas: What's wrong, Toby?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Toby sighed.
  • Thomas: It's much better than the old roof and it hasn't got any holes.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas added.
  • Toby: But I like my old roof with holes.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Toby sadly.
  • Toby: Little birds flew into the holes to make their nests. My shed was their home too.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was surprised. He watched Toby chuff slowly and sadly into his shed. Thomas puffed slowly along. He had never felt so miserable. Just then, Thomas saw the new home. Percy had delivered for Farmer McColl's doves. It gave Thomas an idea. Thomas steamed over to the lumberyard. He could see the lumber from Toby's old roof was still there. He asked the workmen to build a new birdhouse out of the old lumber.
  • Thomas: Then all the birds will have a new home.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Soon, the new birdhouse was finished. Thomas chuffed excitedly to Toby's shed. The workmen put up the birdhouse. Birds came to nest in it right away. Toby listened. He was very happy. His friends had returned. There were now more birds chirping then ever before. And now, Toby would also be nice and dry in his new shed.
  • Toby: Thank you, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Toby.
  • Toby: I'm very happy.
  • Michael Brandon: And so was Thomas.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Which Way Now?)
  • Michael Brandon: Which Way Now?. It was summer on the Island of Sodor. Lots of vacationers like to visit the mountains. They like to hike along the beautiful mountain trails. The trails follow the railway lines through forests. By rushing rivers, and around lovely lakes. Today, Rusty has two very important jobs. First, he has to take some workers to put up new signposts along the trails. The signpost show hikers which way to go. Rusty want the workers to finish quickly. His next job was to pick up Sir Topham Hatt, his wife and their grandchildren from the wharf. They were all going for a hike by the lake. Rusty didn't want to be late. He hurried to the next location. Rusty was almost bursting. He wanted to get away.
  • Rusty: It's time to go! It's time to go!
  • Michael Brandon: He called.
  • Workers: We haven't finished our jobs.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the workers.
  • Rusty: But we have to leave now.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty honked.
  • Rusty: I can't be late for Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Michael Brandon: But when Rusty arrived, he wasn't late; he was early. Thomas puffed up to say hello.
  • Thomas: You look happy.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Rusty: I am.
  • Michael Brandon: Honked Rusty. When Sir Topham Hatt and his family arrived, they were very excited. They climbed on board Rusty's car and set off at the day of the lake. Rusty took them to the start of their hike.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see you later and the cafe.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt. And Rusty chugged cheerfully away. Rusty did all his other jobs as quickly as possible. He had to be on time to pick up Sir Topham Hatt and his family at the cafe. But when he arrived at the cafe, Sir Topham Hatt wasn't there. Rusty was puzzled.
  • Rusty: They should be here by now.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty began to worry. Rusty decided to look for them.
  • Rusty: I'm sure they can be far away.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought. At the quarry, Rusty found the group of campers. They were putting up their tents. Rusty asked if they had seen Sir Topham Hatt and his family.
  • Campers: No, we haven't.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the campers. Then, Rusty met the party of fishermen at the coal mine.
  • Rusty: Have you seen Sir Topham Hatt?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked.
  • Fishermen: No.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the fishermen. At the Ruin Castle, Rusty found the group of skiers. They hadn't seen Sir Topham Hatt and his family either. Rusty puffed on. And then, he stopped.
  • Rusty: Hmm, this is very strange.
  • Michael Brandon: He puzzled.
  • Rusty: Why would the skiers at the Ruin Castle? And the fishermen at the coal mine? And the campers at the quarry? Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty honked.
  • Rusty: The signpost must be all pointed in the wrong direction! I made the workmen rushed. This is all my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty knew he had to go back to the place Sir Topham Hatt and his family had started from. Then, follow the signs they had followed. So Rusty raced off. Soon Rusty arrived at the place where he dropped off Sir Topham Hatt. He looked at the signpost. The signpost wasn't pointing at the lake. It was pointing towards the hills.
  • Rusty: That's the way to Hill Farm.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought Rusty. Rusty chugged up the steep track towards the farm as fast as he could. When Rusty arrived at Hill Farm, he found Sir Topham Hatt and his family. Rusty explained all about the signposts.
  • Rusty: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sadly.
  • Rusty: I spoiled your day. You want to go to the lake. And now you're in Hill Farm.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But we're having a wonderful day.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The children had a marvelous time playing with the animals.
  • (Cow moos)
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty was very happy. Later, Rusty delivered everyone safely back to the wharf.
  • Children: Goodbye, Rusty.
  • Michael Brandon: Called the children.
  • Children: You can go home now.
  • Rusty: Not yet.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: I've one more job to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty hurried over to the workmen. Rusty told them about the signposts pointing in the wrong directions.
  • Rusty: It was all my fault for hurrying you.
  • Michael Brandon: He hooted.
  • Rusty: But I can take you back to put them right. And this time, I won't rush!
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin H Is For Harold)
  • Children: (singing) 'F' is for friendship, and flying and free. 'G' is for good, as good friends ought to be. What's after 'G' and then comes before 'I'? 'H' is for Harold, way up in the sky. Let's sing about Harold, our friend in the air. Up in the clouds, he can see everywhere. Patrolling the Island, an eye in the sky. A friend to all engines, and so that is why. 'F' is for friendship, and flying and free. 'G' is for good, as good friends ought to be. What's after 'G' and then comes before 'I'? 'H' is for Harold, way up in the sky. He's daring and brave and determined to show How he can help when there's blankets of snow. If engines get lost in the dead of the night, Harold can hover while shining his light. 'F' is for friendship, and flying and free. 'G' is for good, as good friends ought to be. What's after 'G' and then comes before 'I'? 'H' is for Harold, way up in the sky. 'H' is for Harold, way up in the sky. He hovers over water as well as the land. When Sir Topham Hatt needs him, he's waiting on hand. 'F' is for friendship, and flying and free. 'G' is for good, as good friends ought to be. What's after 'G' and then comes before 'I'? 'H' is for Harold, way up in the sky.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas' Tricky Tree)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' Tricky Tree. It was a winter holiday season. All the little engines on the Narrow Gauge Railway were very busy. Skarloey was pulling cars of holly and mistletoe from the woods. Mighty Mac was taking vacationers to the mountains. And Sir Handel was taking a special present to the wharf for Sir Topham Hatt. It was a winter holiday tree. Thomas was very excited. Sir Topham Hatt had chosen him to collect the tree from the wharf. He was to take it to the town square at time at the winter party. When Thomas arrived at the wharf, it was very busy. He looked for the tree. But he couldn't see it anywhere. Duncan puffed up.
  • Duncan: Are you looking for something, Thomas?
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed cheekily.
  • Thomas: I'm looking for a Christmas tree.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Duncan: Don't you know what a Christmas tree looks like?
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Duncan. He liked teasing the big engines.
  • Duncan: It's tall and green and pointy.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas didn't think this is funny at all. Duncan called out to Peter Sam.
  • Duncan: Peter Sam, Thomas needs our help. He doesn't know what a Christmas tree looks like.
  • Thomas: Of course I do.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas. He didn't like being teased by the small cheeky engines. It made him cross. Later, Thomas met Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Handel began.
  • Sir Handel: The Christmas tree is...
  • Thomas: ...tall and green and pointy.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir Handel. I don't need your help.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Handel was puzzled. But Thomas had already wheeshed away. Thomas chuffed into the warehouse. Rusty was there.
  • Rusty: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: He honked happily.
  • Rusty: Can I help?
  • Thomas: No thank you, Rusty.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas tooted quickly. He looked around. He couldn't see the tree anywhere. Thomas was beginning to worry. Thomas chuffed to another warehouse.
  • Skarloey: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Can I help?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas didn't want to be teased by another little engine.
  • Thomas: No thank you, Skarloey.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Then, he saw it. A long, pointy load on the flatbed. It was covered by a large tarp.
  • Thomas: I found it!
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas excitedly.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt will be waiting for this tree.
  • Skarloey: What tree?
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey whistled. But Thomas had wheeshed away. Thomas raced out of the warehouse. He had a very important job to do. But he was puffing too fast. Then, there was trouble. Thomas took the wrong track. He applied his brakes hard.
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. He heard a flatbed crashed into the buffers and then splashed into the canal.
  • Thomas: Oh, no! Sir Topham Hatt's tree!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Skarloey: It's not a tree, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: That's what I've been trying to tell you. It's a load of pipes.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' cheeks turn read.
  • Skarloey: Sir Handel delivered the tree this morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey added.
  • Duncan: So it only knows where it is.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Duncan. Thomas was a big engine. But he couldn't have felt smaller. And he couldn't have felt sillier. The keyside cranes lifted the pipes out of the water. Thomas was worried. It was getting later and later. Thomas knew there was only one engine that could help him. And that was Sir Handel. He chuffed quickly away. Thomas had to find him and ask him where the tree was before it's too late. Thomas' boiler bubbled and his axles ached as he raced towards the Transfer Yards. He thought Sir Handel would be there. And Thomas was right. Sir Handel was there.
  • Thomas: I've been a very silly engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas wheeshed.
  • Thomas: I didn't want to listen to you. I thought I knew better than the little engines, but I don't.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Handel listened carefully.
  • Thomas: I need to find the tree.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed.
  • Thomas: And there's no time to loose.
  • Sir Handel: Of course I'll help you.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Handel chuffed.
  • Sir Handel: Follow me, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' smile stretched from buffer to buffer. Sir Handel was fast. But Thomas puff quicker after him. Sir Topham Hatt will be waiting. Thomas was coupled up to the tree.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir Handel.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Now I must hurry.
  • Duncan: I'm sorry I teased you.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Duncan. Thomas smiled.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I didn't ask for help.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Thomas. And he raced away. That night, Sir Topham Hatt switched on the lights. They look wonderful. The children clapped and cheered.
  • Thomas: I may be big, but I can still ask for help.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. And his smile was as bright as the lights.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Thomas and The Shooting Star)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Shooting Star. It was a busy day on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were working hard. They wanted to finish their work as quickly as possible. That night, a shooting star was going to flash across the sky. Anyone who saw it can make a wish. None of the engines had ever seen a shooting star before. As the sun started to set, the engines were watching the darkening sky. They were thinking about their wishes.
  • Gordon: I'm going to wish to be grander.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon.
  • James: I'm going to wish to be redder.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • Percy: I'm going to wish to pull the mail forever and ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy happily. Thomas didn't know what to wish for.
  • Thomas: Never having to work with Diesel again.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought.
  • Thomas: Or never wearing my snowplough. Or never having to pull smelly fish.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. Sir Topham Hatt arrived with some engineers.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The power station has broken down. There are no lights on the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you must take the engineers to repair it right away. Be sure to go the quickest way.
  • Michael Brandon: He added.
  • Percy: Look out for the shooting star.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: And remember to make a wish.
  • Thomas: I will.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. And he steamed away. The power station was on the far side of the island. Thomas puffed happily along. He make sure to take the quickest way. But then, he came to a long dark tunnel.
  • Thomas: If I could through the tunnel, I won't be able to see the sky. Then I might miss the shooting star.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. So Thomas puffed back up at the junction. And he took a different route.
  • Thomas: This isn't the fastest way.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed. But if I puff hard enough, I'll be at the power station just as quickly. But Thomas wasn't at the power station just as quickly. He was at Henry's forest instead. The trees were tall and the branches blocked out the sky.
  • Thomas: If I go through Henry's forest,
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed.
  • Thomas: I won't see the shooting star.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas took a different route. He puffed around Henry's forest. His journey was getting longer and longer. Thomas came to the cutting through Shen Valley. The track through the valley was the fastest way to the power station. But the valley was deep, and the cutting was very high.
  • Thomas: If I go through the cutting, I won't see the shooting star.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. So Thomas backed up and went another way. Thomas' journey was getting even longer. And it was even later. And with no electricity on the island, Sodor was darker than ever. At Tidmouth Sheds, the engines were all still thinking about their wishes. All except Percy. He was worried about his friend.
  • Percy: Thomas should be back by now.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped sadly.
  • Percy: Where is he?
  • Michael Brandon: But the engines didn't know where Thomas was. And neither did Thomas. He could hardly see anywhere. He didn't know whether to puff left, or right, or up, or down. Now he wasn't thinking about the shooting star. He was thinking about the power station.
  • Thomas: If I had taking the quickest way, the lights would be fixed by now.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I wouldn't be lost. Cinders and Ashes! I wish I could see.
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly, something flashed across the night sky. It was a shooting star. It shot across the sky like the brighest rocket that had ever been. It lit up the island from coast to coast. Now, Thomas could see the power station.
  • Thomas: My wish came true!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Thank you, star.
  • Michael Brandon: And he steamed off as fast as he could. Thomas arrived at the power station. The engineers quickly got to work. Soon the power station was fixed. And the lights came on all other Sodor. Thomas puffed happily home. He passed to brightly lit stations. As he pulled into Tidmouth, his friends were talking about their wishes. Gordon said he felt grander. James was sure he was redder. Percy was just happy to see his friend.
  • Percy: I wish you would come home safely.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. Both of our wishes came true.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby's Afternoon Off)
  • Michael Brandon: Toby's Afternoon Off. The engines of Sodor are very friendly. And no one is more friendly than Toby. Toby is a happy smiling steam tram with lots of friends. There's Mavis at the quarry, Salty at the docks and Thomas. They're all Toby's friends. One day, Toby had finished all his jobs early. He was going to spend the afternoon at the farm. Toby loved visiting the animals. As he was about to leave, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have three special jobs. As you are finished early, you will have time to do all of them.
  • Toby: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Toby. Toby was worried. He liked being useful but three jobs would take him the rest of the day. Now he will have no time to go to the farm. Toby puffed off. He felt sad. But then, he had an idea. Perhaps he could get everything done in time.
  • Toby: All I need is some help with just one of my jobs. I'll ask one of my friends.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby's first job was to shunt some freight cars at the yards. As he arrived, he saw Mavis.
  • Toby: Mavis will help me.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought.
  • Mavis: Sorry, Toby. No time to talk.
  • Michael Brandon: Mavis puffed as she steamed passed him. Toby was upset. He'd be sure Mavis would help him.
  • Toby: I'll just have to shunt the freight cars on my own.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed sadly. Next Toby had to collect some empty freight cars from the depot. As he arrived, Thomas was leaving.
  • Toby: Thomas!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Toby.
  • Toby: Wait! Will you help me take some freight cars?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Sorry, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm in a hurry. I'll help you later.
  • Michael Brandon: And Thomas raced away. Toby was surprised. Mavis and Thomas both rushed off very quickly. Now he would have to take the freight cars to the Coaling Plant himself. It was getting late. Toby was worried he wouldn't get to the farm. And he wouldn't get to see the animals. Once Toby had delivered the freight cars, he rushed to his last job at Brendam Docks.
  • Toby: Perhaps my friend Salty will help me.
  • Michael Brandon: But as Toby arrived, Salty was rushing towards him.
  • Toby: Salty!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Toby.
  • Toby: Stop, please! I have to help Cranky unload lots of cargo.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Toby.
  • Toby: But I'm running out of time. Will you help me?
  • Salty: Sorry, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty.
  • Salty: But I have an important delivery. This piston rod is too important to wait, matey.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby felt miserable. He knew deliveries were important, but he thought helping a friend was important too. Neither Mavis, Thomas or Salty had helped Toby.
  • Toby: And I thought they were my friends.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Toby sadly. He would have to move that cargo on his own. Now he'd never get to the farm. Toby pulled up alongside Cranky.
  • Cranky: What are you waiting for?
  • Michael Brandon: Cranked Cranky.
  • Toby: I'm here to pick up the cargo.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby sadly.
  • Cranky: A ship's been caught in the rough seas.
  • Michael Brandon: Cranky snapped.
  • Cranky: A cargo won't be here till morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby was delighted.
  • Toby: Now we'll have time to get to the farm.
  • Michael Brandon: So he raced off. Then, Toby saw Henry in a siding.
  • Henry: Where are you going in such a hurry?
  • Michael Brandon: Wheezed Henry sadly. Toby told him all about wanting to go to the farm and all about Mavis and Thomas and Salty.
  • Toby: I thought friends help each other.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby wheeshed.
  • Toby: But they were all too busy to help me.
  • Henry: That's because they've all been helping me.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry. Toby was surprised.
  • Henry: I broke down.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Henry.
  • Henry: So Mavis brought my special coal, Thomas took my passengers and Salty brought me a new piston rod.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby knew he had made a mistake. Mavis, Thomas and Salty had been helping a friend after all.
  • Toby: They were all helping you.
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Toby. Toby felt very silly.
  • Toby: Is there anything I can do to help you, Henry?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked. Henry was surprised.
  • Henry: But then, you get to the farm to see the animals.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Henry.
  • Toby: It doesn't matter.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby.
  • Toby: Helping a friend is much more important. What can I do?
  • Michael Brandon: Henry asked Toby to take his passenger cars to Knapford Station. Henry's cars were very very heavy.
  • Toby: I don't know if I'll be able to move them.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Toby.
  • Toby: But I'm going to try.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby coupled up to the passenger cars. He heaved and hauled and puffed and pulled. At last, Henry's cars began to move. Henry was very pleased.
  • Henry: Thank you, Toby!
  • Michael Brandon: He called as Toby puffed away.
  • Henry: Sorry about your afternoon off!
  • Michael Brandon: But Toby didn't mind. He was helping a friend and that was better than an afternoon off anyday.

  • 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.
