Old Iron

  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again. After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigent.
  • Percy: Old iron!? Slow!?
  • Thomas: Why, Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward. Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.

Edward's Exploit

  • George Carlin: Bertie the Bus was giving some visitors the tour on the Island of Sodor. It was their last afternoon, and Edward was preparing to take them to meet Bill and Ben. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Henry: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • James: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked James.
  • Gordon: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Duck.
  • Duck: You're all jealous. Edward's better than any of you.
  • BoCo: You're right, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: Edward's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Edward: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward, as he finally puffed out of the station. Bill and Ben were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special.
  • (Bill and Ben take the visitors to their home)
  • George Carlin: Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Edward took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Edward. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Edward's wheels slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack...
  • (Snap!)
  • George Carlin: ...something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Edward?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned engine. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Edward: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Edward. Edward puffed and pulled his hardest. But his wheels kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Edward. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with freight cars.
  • Edward: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Edward: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Edward's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearily, but unbeaten, Edward steamed in. Henry was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Edward, his driver and fireman. Duck and BoCo saw to it that Edward was left in peace. Gordon and James remain respectfully silent.

  • George Carlin: One winter's night when the cold wind blew, the engines found it hard to sleep.
  • Toby: What we need.
  • George Carlin: Suggested Toby.
  • Toby: Is to listen to a story.
  • Percy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Percy.
  • Percy: A mysterious story.
  • Duck: But.
  • George Carlin: Added Duck.
  • Duck: It must have a happy ending.
  • Thomas: Driver told me a story.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas, so everyone listened.
  • Thomas: Once upon a time...
  • George Carlin: Began Thomas. They were three little engines who lived their own little shed on their own little railway. Their names were Duke, Stuart and Falcon. Duke was the oldest and was name after his grace, the Duke of Sodor. He was proud of this and love to keep the little ones in order. Whenever they had anything that Duke thought wrong, he would say...
  • Duke: That would never suit his Grace.
  • George Carlin: Other engines came and went but Duke outlast them at all. Stuart and Falcon used to call him "Granpuff". They were fun of him, but they got very tired and hearing all about his Grace. Sometimes they were teasing and chant...
  • Stuart and Falcon: Engines come and engines go, Granpuff goes on forever!
  • Duke: You impurtanded scallywags!
  • George Carlin: Duke would say.
  • Duke: Whatever are you engines coming to?
  • Falcon: Never mind, Granpuff. We're only young once.
  • Duke: Well you better mind, unless you wanna end up like Smudger.
  • Stuart: Ooh! Granpuff, whatever happened?
  • Duke: Smudger.
  • George Carlin: Said Duke.
  • Duke: Was a showoff. He rode roughly often came off the rails. I warned him to be careful, but he took no notice.
  • Smudger: Listen, Dukie.
  • George Carlin: He snarled.
  • Smudger: Who worries about their few spills?
  • Duke: We do here, I said, but Smudger just laughed.
  • Smudger: (laughs)
  • Duke: Until one day, manager said he was gonna make himself useful at last. Smudger stopped laughing then.
  • Stuart: Why? What did he do?
  • Duke: He turned him into a generator. He still out there behind our shed. He'll never move again.
  • George Carlin: After that, Stuart and Falcon became really useful engines and all three were happy together for many years. Then hard times came. The mines and the hills closed and the railway was closed too. People came to buy the engines.
  • People: We'll take Stuart and Falcon.
  • George Carlin: No one wanted Duke. They thought him too old.
  • Stuart: Cheer up, Granpuff.
  • George Carlin: Called Stuart.
  • Stuart: We'll find you a nice railway and then you can come and keep us in order.
  • George Carlin: They tried to be brave and cheerful, but no one really thought their dreams would come true. Duke's driver and fireman oiled and greased him one last time. They sheeted and snuggly and said goodbye, then they had to go away and find work. Duke was alone.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Duke: I'll go to sleep. It'll help me pass the time.
  • George Carlin: Winter torrents washed soil from the hills. Trees and bushes grew all around. You wouldn't know the shed was there, let alone the little engine sleep inside.
  • Percy: That's not a happy ending!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: There will be one, but that'll have to wait until next time.

Sleeping Beauty

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful night on the Island of Sodor. The day's work was done and the engines puffed safely home.
  • Percy: Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: Will you tell us the end of the story?
  • Thomas: You mean the one about Duke the lost engine?
  • Henry: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • James: But please remind us of a story so far.
  • George Carlin: So Thomas began and here's the rest of the story he told. Duke was old and live with two young engines called Stuart and Falcon. They teased Duke and called him "Granpuff", but they were happy together. Then their line was closed down and the young engines went away. Duke was left alone in the shed. He went to sleep and everything around him changed. But Duke was never forgotten. Years went by until one day not long ago, visitors came to see Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Visitors: We want to find Duke.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Visitors: And make him happy again.
  • George Carlin: Maps lay everything.
  • Visitor: If we followed the old line shown here on the map.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Visitor: We'll travel north to the village and then to the mountains. And look. There's the sign for the old station. If Duke's anywhere, he's there.
  • George Carlin: Everyone set off to the mountains far away. The days went by, the search grew harder, but the rescuers wouldn't give up.
  • Rescuers: Let's go this way.
  • George Carlin: They said. But there was still no sign of Duke.
  • Rescuers: He's here somewhere.
  • George Carlin: They said. They scrambled over hills, struggled over ditches. At last their search ended, quite by accident.
  • (One of the rescuers falls on top of Duke)
  • Rescuers: We found him! We found our sleeping beauty!
  • Duke: Excuse me?
  • George Carlin: Enquired Duke.
  • Duke: Are you a vandal? Driver told me vandals break and smash things.
  • Rescuers: Bless you no.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the rescuers.
  • Rescuers: We dropped in because we couldn't find your door. Falcon and Stuart will be pleased to see you.
  • Duke: So they did remember!
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duke happily. Then they all set off for Duke's new home. Stuart and Falcon are ready for a big welcome.
  • Stuart and Falcon: He's here!
  • George Carlin: They whispered.
  • Stuart and Falcon: Sh! Sh!
  • Duke: You woke me up.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Duke.
  • Duke: In my young days, engines were...
  • Stuart: Seem in not heard, Granpuff, we know.
  • Falcon: We're all be back to work tomorrow. We're glad you come back. We can keep you in order now.
  • Duke: Keep me in order? Be off with you! Impuritie scallywags!
  • George Carlin: But Duke's old eyes twinkled, and for the first time in years, he smiled as he dozed in the sun.
  • Thomas: And that...
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: the whole story. Did you like it?
  • Percy: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed the engines.
  • James: Especially the happy ending.
  • George Carlin: And soon, they were all asleep too.

Whistles and Sneezes

  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful. And there's another thing: Henry whistles too much. No respectable engine ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • George Carlin: Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Henry.
  • (We hear a screeching noise)
  • Henry: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon. But Gordon never whistles like that.
  • George Carlin: It was Gordon. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Henry and he didn't look at Edward. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Edward: Well.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: And he told Edward what Gordon had said. Meanwhile, Gordon screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone covered their ears. Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take him away!
  • George Carlin: He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place.
  • (Two fitters fix Gordon's whistle with progress)
  • George Carlin: That night, Gordon slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • George Carlin: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • George Carlin: Hummed his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Henry: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • (The boys smash the coaches' windows with stones)
  • Henry: Ohh.
  • George Carlin: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass, they've broken our glass.
  • George Carlin: Cried the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • George Carlin: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Henry: Yes, yes.
  • Henry's Driver: Well then.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • George Carlin: Lots of people were at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry has plenty of ashes.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Henry's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • George Carlin: Henry felt more stuffed up. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Henry: Ah-choo!
  • (Henry sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver. Henry went home, hoping that next time he saw Gordon and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.

Duck Takes Charge

  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Gordon: What?
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • Gordon: Silly!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger engine to help me.
  • James: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Any engine could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • George Carlin: Percy went off to get some coaches.
  • Percy: That stupid old signal.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Percy: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little engine and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look tired.
  • Percy: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my dome or on my wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look the right way up to me.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up. The new engine is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Thomas and Toby will help too.
  • Percy: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: The new engine arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Duck: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Duck. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Duck better than Montague.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Duck it shall be. Here, Percy, show Duck around.
  • George Carlin: The two engines went off together. Soon they were very busy. James, Gordon and Henry watched Duck quietly doing his work.
  • Henry: He seems a simple sort of engine.
  • James: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Henry, Gordon, James: (quacking noises) Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Smoke billowed everywhere. Percy was cross, but Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes they do.
  • George Carlin: Answered Percy.
  • Duck: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He whispered something.
  • Duck: We'll do it later.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extraordinary noise.
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Wheesh! (snorting noises)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He said and hurried to the yard. Duck and Percy calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the engines in. Gordon, James and Henry were furious.
  • (Gordon, James and Henry blew their whistles loudly)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Bellowed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: They won't let us in!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck, explain this behavior.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western engine. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Percy and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, engines that we only take orders from you.
  • (James and Gordon blew their whistles loudly)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quiet!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy and Duck, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • George Carlin: Gordon, Henry and James sniggered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As for you.
  • George Carlin: Thundered Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Duck is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • George Carlin: After Percy went away, Duck was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!

Thomas Saves The Day

  • George Carlin: Every day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the station to catch his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello.
  • George Carlin: He always said to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't let the silly freight cars tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: There were lots of freight cars and Thomas worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • George Carlin: He told Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and freight cars.
  • George Carlin: One day, Thomas was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an engine whistling.
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The engine was James and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • James: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the freight cars. Still whistling...
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Poor James disappeared.
  • Thomas: I like to teach those freight cars a lesson.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas the Tank Engine.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • George Carlin: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: James is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was coupled on and off they went. Thomas worked his hardest.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He wasn't pretending to be like Gordon. He really meant it.
  • Thomas: Bother those freight cars and their tricks. I hope poor James isn't hurt.
  • George Carlin: James' driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • James' Driver and Fireman: Never mind James.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • James' Driver and Fireman: It was those silly freight cars and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • George Carlin: Thomas pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Thomas: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Thomas: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • George Carlin: He told the freight cars. And they answered...
  • Freight Cars: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • George Carlin: They left the broken cars. Then with two cranes they put James back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift James away from the field. A surprised Thomas watches as James is put back to the rails)
  • George Carlin: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Thomas helped him back to the shed. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I heard all about it and I'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful engine. James shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Thomas: Oh thank you sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas. Now Thomas is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Annie and Clarabel. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Edward and Henry stop quite often and tell him the news. Gordon is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Gordon: Boop Boop.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas always whistles...
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: In return.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
