Transcript

Percy Runs Away

  • George Carlin: Henry, James and Gordon were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty, and long to be let out again. At last, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope you are sorry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And that you understand that every job on the railway is important. We have a new tank engine called Percy who helps pull coaches and Thomas and Edward had worked the main line nicely, but I will let you now if you promise to work hard.
  • Gordon: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the three engines.
  • James: We will.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's good, but please remember that this no shunting nonsense must stop.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt then told Percy, Edward and Thomas that they can go and play on a branch line for a few days, and they ran off happily to find Annie and Clarabel at the junction. The two coaches were very pleased to see Thomas again. Edward and Percy played with the freight cars.
  • Cars: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars as they pushed them to their proper sidings. But the two engines laughed and went on shunting till the cars were tightling arranged. Next, Edward took some empty cars from the quarry. Percy was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He like watching trains and being cheeky to the other engines.
  • Percy: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He would call, and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Percy was waiting for the signalman to set the switch so that he can go back to the yard. Percy was being rather careless and not paying attention. Edward had warned Percy.
  • Edward: Be careful on the main line. Whistle to the signalman that you are there.
  • George Carlin: But Percy didn't remember to whistle, and so the busy signalman forgot him. Percy waited and waited. The switch were still against him so he couldn't move. Then, he looked along the main line.
  • Percy: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Gordon with the express.
  • Gordon: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Gordon.
  • Gordon: Get out of my way!
  • George Carlin: Percy opened his eyes. Gordon had stopped with Percy's buffers just a few inches from his own. But Percy had began to move.
  • Percy: I won't stay here, I'll run away!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He ran straight through Edward's station, and was so frighetend that he ran right up Gordon's hill without stopping. After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to shut off steam and applied his brakes.
  • Percy: I want to stop! I want to stop!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Percy was in trouble, so he kindly set the switch. Percy puffed wearly onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
  • Percy: I want to stop, I want to stop! I have stopped!
  • George Carlin: He puffed thankfully.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said the workmen as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have some drink and some coal and then you feel better.
  • George Carlin: Presently, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Well done, Percy. You started so quickly that you stopped the nasty accident.
  • Percy: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: You were clever to stop.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon. Then Gordon helped pull Percy out from the bank. The two engines are now good friends, but Percy was always most careful that he goes out on the main line.

Troublesome Trucks

  • Children: (singing) The engines always think they are so clever, And so they like to bump the trucks around, They bump them in the sidings, they bump the in the yards. They better beware, they better take care, They better be on their guards. Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game, Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. Diesel thinks he is so very smart, Bumping all the trucks around the yard. He gets them all in line, then bumps them one more time, Now, he thinks that he's in charge. The trucks decide to play another joke, And Diesel's plans will all go up in smoke. He pulls and he pulls until he breaks the chain. On, on, on! He's off the rails again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. The engines all try hard to make this stand, Looking for a way to foil their plans. Nothing seems to work. It's just makes matters worse. Trucks are always on the hand. They find their time until they get their chance when noone is expecting it they pounce. They push and they push until it's all too late. On, on, on! The trucks have won again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same.

Put Upon Percy

  • Alec Baldwin: Percy puffed grumpily into the yards. He was feeling put upon and said so.
  • Percy: I feel put upon.
  • Alec Baldwin: He complained to Thomas. Thomas was confused.
  • Thomas: Put upon what? The rails?
  • Percy: No, put upon with work. Driver says he is too.
  • Thomas: Put upon. What a silly saying.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas. But Annie and Clarabel liked it and they sang about it, too.
  • Annie and Clarabel: (singing) Percy's been put upon, put upon, put upon. Percy's been put upon, poor old Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy is being put upon.
  • Percy: I am, i am, i am.
  • Alec Baldwin: He collected metal from the foundry, coal from the yards, flour from the mills, rock from the quarries and fuel from the depot. Then he delivered it all to the docks. Next he collected some empty freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Who's this dirty little engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: We want Thomas or Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy ignored them.
  • Percy: Put upon, put upon. That's what i am.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night all the engines laughed at him.
  • Thomas: We can see what's put upon you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy you done a good day's work. Now get a good night's rest.
  • Percy: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, he took some freight cars to the coal yards. Then he had to push some empty freight cars to the mine shaft. When he arrived, there was trouble. The foreman spoke to his driver.
  • Foreman: The freight cars are stuck in the mechanism. All they need is a good push.
  • Percy's Driver: We'll do it right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy shunted back to were a large canvas barrier was used to protect his line from loose rocks. Percy charged into the line of freight cars too fast and too hard.
  • Percy: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Percy. The freight cars broke free, but ran out of control to the mines below.
  • Freight Cars: On, on, faster, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: The silly freight cars yelled. Then there was trouble again.
  • (The freight cars hit the pole and we hear a siren and the mine rumbling)
  • Miner: Get out of here fast! The mine's collapsing!
  • Percy's Driver: We'll just have to make a run for it, Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • Percy: There's going to be an avalanche!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. And he was right. Worse still, the track he was on began to crumble.
  • Percy: Oh, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. Then he remembered something he had seen earlier.
  • Percy: There's the canvas barrier by the track. That might save us.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were just in time.
  • (The avalanche starts to bury Percy completely)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was right. The canvas did indeed save them, but the miners didn't know that.
  • Foreman: The avalanche has buried an engine and its crew.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted the foreman.
  • Foreman: We must help them.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy had been rescued, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to his driver and fireman then to Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Driver told me how brave you were, Percy. As a reward you will be repainted at the works.
  • Percy: Oh thank you, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When he returned, Percy's coat glistened in the sun.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I teased you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You were certainly put upon by that avalanche.
  • Percy: Yes indeed. But just look at my new coat of paint. Now I don't mind that being put upon me.

Come For The Ride

  • Girl: (singing) All your friends on the railway would like you all to see.
  • Children: (singing) Just how much fun rockin' on the railway can be.
  • Boy: (singing) So won't you come along and join them for the ride.
  • Children: (singing) Just hang on tight, catch your breath, and come for the ride! Rockin', rockin' on the railway, Rollin', rollin' on the railway, Movin', movin' down the line, Swingin', sway from side to side. They'll be rockin' an' a-rollin' won't you come for the ride of your life?
  • Boy: (singing) Watch Duncan go, he can really rock 'n' roll.
  • Children: (singing) He can slip, he can slide, he can sway from side to side.

  • Children: (singing) Rockin', rockin' on the railway, Rollin', rollin' on the railway Movin', movin' down the line, Swingin', sway from side to side.

Percy and The Haunted Mine

  • Alec Baldwin: In the summertime, the branch line stationmasters enjoy a friendly competition for the most beautiful station on the Island of Sodor. The engines love to help too. One evening Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want Percy to collect some flower bushes from Lower Tidmouth Station.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They're at Maithwaithe.
  • Percy: Maithwaithe?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Percy: Y-y-yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He added nervously. Percy chuffed anxiously through the thickening fog. He doesn't like travelling to Maithwaithe at night. The line passes through a junction next to a spooky old quarry mine. Percy hoped the signal at the junction would be green. He didn't want to stop next to the mine. But the signal was red. He had to stop. Suddenly he saw something.
  • Percy: Bouncing buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. His driver hadn't seen the old chimney sink into the ground. The signal changed. Percy was so scared, he steamed away as fast as he could. The next day, Percy was telling Donald and Douglas about the disappearing chimney.
  • Donald: It's the naughty gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Donald.
  • Douglas: We fat men with big feet. They make strange things happen.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: It's legend. They steal your wheels and filch your funnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy didn't want to believe them, but he wasn't sure. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for Percy at Dryaw Station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to collect some freight cars from the abandoned mine.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Percy: Y-y-yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy answered. But he really didn't want to go there again. Percy hoped he wouldn't see anything else disappear. He slipped into the sidings and buffered up to the freight cars.
  • Percy: Spooky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Stammered Percy. Suddenly, another building at the old mine sank into the ground.
  • Percy's Driver: What was that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted his driver.
  • Percy: Double bouncing buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shrieked Percy. He was so scared, he lurched forward and rammed the freight car.
  • Percy: Naughty gnomes!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. He steamed away faster than before, all the way back to Lower Tidmouth Station. Percy's driver told Sir Topham Hatt what they had seen.
  • Percy: It's the naughty gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: They like to cause trouble. It's legend.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The old buildings are collapsing at empty mine shafts. That's all.
  • Percy: But i saw the gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Protested Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Of course you did.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Garden gnomes.
  • Percy: Garden gnomes?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: To decorate Lower Tidmouth Station.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They're not scary. Garden gnomes bring good luck.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he ordered Percy to return immediately and get them. Percy was scared, but he knew he had to be responsible. So he carried on.
  • Percy: I'm not scared, i'm not scared.
  • Alec Baldwin: He waited for something else spooky to happen. But it didn't and Sir Topham Hatt was right. The garden gnomes weren't scary at all. His driver and fireman had collected the gnomes and Percy took them straight back to Lower Tidmouth Station. Later that week, the stationmanster thanked Percy.
  • Stationmanster: We wouldn't have won our competition without your garden gnomes, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was very proud.
  • Percy: You were right, sir, naughty gnomes can be lucky after all.

Little Engines

  • Children: (singing) Main Line Engines always boast how big they are, Superior by far. But Little Engines toil away from dawn to dusk, Without a fuss or care. Just because we're small doesn't mean we don't stand tall, And we pull our weight like all the others do. You'll be surprised, in spite of their size,Just what little engines can do! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Bigger Engines say little engines play all day, And they're not much use to anyone at all. But we're strong enough to deal with those trucks, That's what little engines are for! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Thomas, Percy, Bill and Ben, You can rely on them, These little engines are the best! Stepney, Duck, and Oliver, They'll give the trucks what for, You'll be so impressed. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. They're our favourite little engines, They're mighty little engines! They're not such little engines after all! They're not such little engines after all!
