Narrator: "Mowgli was waiting at a junction when a tank engine arrived."

Mowgli: "Hello,"

Narrator: "Said Mowgli."

Mowgli: "Who are you?"

Thomas: "I'm Thomas. Who are you?"

Mowgli: "I'm Mowgli. I run this land."

Thomas: "So you're Mowgli, eh? I remember now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Friar Tuck pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today."

Mowgli: "Help me?"

Narrator: "Said Mowgli."

Mowgli: "I can go faster than you."

Thomas: "You can't."

Narrator: "Said Thomas."

Mowgli: "I can!"

Narrator: "Huffed Mowgli."

Thomas: "I'll race you."

Narrator: "Said Thomas.

Their drivers agreed to the race going ahead.

The stationmaster said,

Stationmaster: "Are you ready? Go!"

Narrator: "Mowgli never could go fast at first, and Thomas drew in front.

Amelia and Abigail: "Why don't you go fast? Why don't you go fast?"

Narrator: "Called Amelia and Abigail."

Mowgli: "Wait and see, wait and see."

Narrator: "Hissed Mowgli."

Amelia and Abigail: "He's a long way ahead!"

Narrator: "They wailed.

But Mowgli didn't mind. He'd remembered the level crossing.

There was Thomas, waiting at the gates, while they sailed gaily through."

Mowgli: "Goodbye, Thomas!"

Narrator: "Called Mowgli.

After that, the railway left the path, so they couldn't see Thomas.

Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers."

Mowgli: "Peep peep peep! Quickly, please!"

Narrator: "Called Mowgli, and off they went again."

Mowgli: "Come along, come along!"

Narrator: "Sang Mowgli."

Amelia and Abigail: "We're coming along, we're coming along!"

Narrator: "Sang Amelia and Abigail."

Mowgli: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Panted Mowgli, then he looked ahead. There was Thomas, whistling triumphantly."

Mowgli: "Oh, dearie me. Oh, dearie me."

Narrator: "Groaned Mowgli."

Mowgli's Driver: "Steady, Mowgli."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Mowgli's Driver: "We'll beat Thomas yet."

Amelia and Abigail: "We'll beat Thomas yet, we'll beat Thomas yet."

Narrator: "Echoed Amelia and Abigail."

Mowgli: "We'll do it, we'll do it."

Narrator: "Panted Mowgli."

Mowgli: "Oh, bother! There's a station."

Narrator: "Then, he heard Thomas."

Thomas: "Goodbye, Mowgli! You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We engines have to work, you know. Good-bye."

Mowgli: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "Thought Mowgli."

Mowgli: "We've lost."

Narrator: "But he felt better after a drink.

The signal dropped."

Mowgli: "Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!"

Narrator: "Puffed Mowgli.

As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient whistle.

There was Thomas, waiting at the signal.

He started with a roar, and chased on after Mowgli again.

Now, Mowgli reached his full speed. Thomas tried hard, but Mowgli was too fast.

Whistling triumphantly, he plunged into the tunnel, leaving Thomas far behind."

Mowgli: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Panted Mowgli."

Amelia and Abigail: "We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!"

Narrator: "Chanted Amelia and Abigail, as they whooshed into the last station.

Everyone was there to celebrate Mowgli's victory, but they gave Thomas a big welcome, too."

Thomas: "Well done, Mowgli!"

Narrator: "Said Thomas."

Thomas: "That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane!"

Narrator: "They now keep each other very busy. They often talk about their race. But Thomas' passengers don't like being bounced like peas in a frying pan, and Mowgli's Father has warned Mowgli not to race at dangerous speeds, so although, between you and me, they would like to have another race, I don't think they ever will, do you?"
