Percy Meets Rosie is a fanfiction Thomas & Friends episode, and the first episode of the 1987 Season 3.


A new pink tank engine named Rosie is brought to work on Thomas' branch line to help. Rosie is told to pull freight cars to the Harbour, Percy is jealous and upset because it was favorite job, and thinks Rosie will replace him. So, Duck cheers him up by saying he's a really useful engine, like Rosie. Percy is determined to show Rosie that he is still really useful, but gets himself into trouble by crashing off the tracks. Rosie is sent to help and gets the Breakdown Train to put Percy back onto the tracks. Sir Topham Hatt is cross with Percy for causing so much trouble, and makes him shunt Rosie's cars for her, and Percy apologizes to Rosie and Sir Topham Hatt for making a mess.

  • UK/US Narrator: Ringo Starr.
  • First appearence of Rosie.
  • First time we hear Rosie's theme. It was a Season 2 arrangement mix of her real Season 10-12 theme. This arrangement would be used till 2001.
  • Percy's accident is similar to Thomas' accident from the real version of "Something Fishy", only with Percy falling into a field.
  • The grassy cliff set where Percy fell off is basically similar to the one which Lorry 2 fell in "Horrid Lorry" (when Lorry 2 had fallen off a cliff). The difference is that the rocks on the bottom are replaced with wet sand, less rocks and more grass.

  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to Ffarquar sheds. He had news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A new engine is coming to your line to help. Please, make her welcome.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas, Percy and Toby were excited.
  • Thomas: She's gonna be kind like us!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Toby: And pretty!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Toby.
  • Percy: And I hope she is really useful!
  • Ringo Starr: Added Percy. The engines were right when she arrived. She was colored pink and was feisty. She had six small red wheels, a funnel, a dome and had side tanks like Thomas.
  • Rosie: Hello!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the new engine.
  • Rosie: My name is Rosie.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines were glad.
  • Thomas: You look kind.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas said.
  • Rosie: I do.
  • Ringo Starr: Rosie whistled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Rosie! Nice to have you here!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Rosie: Oh, thank you sir!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Rosie.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now!
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are to take some freight cars to the Haurbor.
  • Rosie: Yes, please sir!
  • Ringo Starr: Rosie said and puffed away. But Percy was disappointed.
  • Percy: Why can't I pull the cars with her?
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Because this is the job for only Rosie.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked Sir Topham Hatt. Percy was sad. Pulling freight cars was one of his best jobs ever. Later, Duck came to cheer him up.
  • Duck: What's wrong?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Percy: Rosie has to pull freight cars to the Haurbor, one of my favorite jobs.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy answered.
  • Duck: Percy, you are really useful engine like Rosie, the new engine here recently.
  • Ringo Starr: Duck said. Percy wanted to show Rosie how he can do as good as her. Soon, he had an idea.
  • Percy: If I can work to the quarry, I will be as useful as Rosie,
  • Ringo Starr: He said, as he set off. On his way to the quarry, he stopped at a signal. Percy had to wait til a engine passed. Gordon did pass by. The signal turned green and Percy set off once more. He was talking about the time he raced Harold.
  • Percy: I stopped at the Haurbor wharf....
  • Ringo Starr: He made his mistake.
  • Percy: Just like this!
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • (Percy crashes into some buffers, and falls off a grassy cliff and into a wet sandy field)
  • Ringo Starr: Meanwhile Rosie was pulling her cars to Elsbridge Station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy's had an accident. You've got to rescue him.
  • Rosie: Yes sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Rosie and set off to the rescue. Later, Percy was back onto the rails, and was covered in wet mud. Sir Topham Hatt was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy!
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have caused me a lot of trouble!
  • Percy: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now, when you are repaired, you will shunt Rosie's cars for her to take.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt remarked. Rosie pulled Percy to the works to be repaired. After Percy was repaired, he was shunting freight cars for Rosie to take.
  • Percy: I'm sorry for making so much trouble, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, you learnt your lesson.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you were doing a great job shunting care for Rosie.
  • Rosie: Thanks for letting me rescuing Percy, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Rosie said. And the two engines laughed. Percy liked Rosie from now on, and the two became firm friends ever since.
