  • Ringo Starr: Nancy is the conductor's daughter. One day she was working on 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Yawned Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You're just an old fusspot.
  • Ringo Starr: And Skarloey closed his eyes. He was thinking about his friend Rheneas, and all the good times they had shared before Rheneas went away to be mended. Nancy interrupted again.
  • Nancy: Don't you wanna look nice when Rheneas comes home?
  • Ringo Starr: Skarloey wasn't sleepy anymore?
  • Skarloey: What? When?
  • Nancy: Soon, daddy told me. I'm going now.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Skarloey: Nancy, stop. Do I really look nice? Please, polish me again.
  • Nancy: Now who's an old fusspot?
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: But Duncan did mind.
  • Duncan: It isn't fair!
  • Ringo Starr: He complained.
  • Duncan: Peter Sam gets a special funnel, Sir Handel gets special wheels, passengers get ice cream, but I'm not even polished.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Duncan's driver.
  • Driver: We'll have to take workmen here right away.
  • Duncan: All this extra work!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Duncan.
  • Duncan: It wear's an engine out!
  • Driver: Rubbish! Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver. Duncan was cross.
  • Duncan: You always think about the passengers and never about me!
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: At last they reached the viaduct near the station.
  • Driver: Come on, Duncan!
  • Ringo Starr: Called his driver.
  • Driver: One more effort, and you'll have a rest and drink in the station.
  • Ringo Starr: Then Duncan was very rude.
  • Duncan: Keep your old station. I'm staying here.
  • Ringo Starr: 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. That night, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No passengers means no polish.
  • Duncan: And no polish means no passengers.
  • Ringo Starr: Duncan muttered to himself. He still has a lot to learn, doesn't he?
