Percy Takes The Plunge

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Henry wanted a rest, but Percy was talking to some engines. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Thomas.
  • Percy: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bill: Oh, Percy, you are brave.
  • Percy: Well, it wasn't anything, really. Water's nothing to an engine with determination.
  • Ben: Tell us more, Percy.
  • Henry: What are you engines doing here?
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Henry.
  • Henry: This shed is for Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Go away! Silly things.
  • Ringo Starr: Henry snorted.
  • (Bill and Ben's whistles toot and then they leave)
  • Percy: They're not silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy had been enjoying himself.
  • Henry: They are silly, and so are you. Water's nothing to an engine with determination. Huh.
  • Percy: Anyway...
  • Ringo Starr: Said cheeky Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not afraid of water; I like it.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran off to the harbour, singing.
  • Percy: Once an engine attached to a train was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Henry: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel, in case the rain spoit my paint.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Henry.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas was looking at the board on the quay.
  • Thomas: Danger! We mustn't go pass it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Thomas: That's orders.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Thomas: Danger means falling down something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Percy: I can't see a mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy. He didn't know that the foundations of the quay had sunk. The rails now slope downward to the sea.
  • Percy: Stupid board.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy. Percy made a plan. One day, he whispered to the cars.
  • Percy: Will you give me a bump when we get to the quay?
  • Ringo Starr: The cars had never been asked to bump an engine before. They giggled and chattered about.
  • Percy: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Percy.
  • Freight Cars: On, on, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the cars. Percy thought they were helping.
  • Percy: I'll pretend to stop at the station, then the cars will push me past the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that whenever I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled, and bumped Percy's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy, sliding past the board. Percy was frantic.
  • Percy: That's enough!
  • (Percy gets pushed in the water)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was sunk.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a very disobedient engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy knew that voice.
  • Percy: Please, sir. Get me out, sir. I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Percy. We cannot do that until high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Percy: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Percy. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself.
  • (The cranes put Percy on a flatcar)
  • Ringo Starr: Next day, he was sent to the works on Henry's freight train.
  • Henry: Well, well, well.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: Did you like the water?
  • Percy: No.
  • Henry: I am surprised. You need more determination, Percy. Water is nothing to an engine with determination, you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy is quite determined that there won't be a next time.

Percy's Ghostly Trick

  • (An owl hoots)
  • (The owl hoots once more and Edward's whistle blows)
  • Percy: And every year on a date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Thomas: Percy, what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Thomas and Toby: Where?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Thomas and Toby.
  • Percy: He didn't say. Ooh, it makes my wheels wobble to think of it.
  • Thomas: Huh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're just a silly little engine. I'm not scared.
  • Percy: Thomas didn't believe in your ghosts.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Percy's Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was dissapointed. That evening, he came back from the harbor.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and an owl hoots)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy knew where he was. Even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's farm crossing. We shant be long now.
  • Ringo Starr: He liked running at night. Rails hummed and the signal light showed green. But a broken cartload of lyme lay ahead. Sam the farmer had just gone for help.
  • (Percy crashes into the cart)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy broke the cart to smitherines. Lyme flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and sees Toby)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Percy or people will think he's a ghost.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy chuckled.
  • Percy: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scare Thomas. That'll teach him to say I'm a silly little engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Toby promised to help.
  • (Toby puffs away)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Toby: Percy's had an accident.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Toby.
  • Thomas: Poor engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Botheration! That means I'll be late.
  • Toby: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Thomas: Out with it, Toby. I can't wait all evening.
  • Toby: I've just seen something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby.
  • Toby: It looked like Percy's ghost. It said it was, was coming here t-t-t-to warn us.
  • Thomas: Huh. Who cares? Don't be frightened, Toby. I'll take care of you.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • Percy: Peep, peep. Pip, pip, pip, peep. Let me in. Let me in.
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Percy.
  • Toby: No, no. Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chill.
  • Percy: I'll chuff, and I'll puff, and I'll break your door in.
  • (The doors open)
  • Thomas: Oh dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots as he comes in the station with Annie and Clarabel)
  • Ringo Starr: It was morning when Thomas returned.
  • Toby: Where have you been?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Ah, well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I knew you'd be sad about Percy and I uh, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (Percy's whistle toots and Edward's whistle blows)
  • Thomas: Oh, sorry. Can't stop. Got to see a coach about a train.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots and he puffs away)
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was not in the worst for his adventue, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Percy: Well, well, well. What do you know about that?
  • Toby: Anyone would think.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Toby.
  • Toby: That our Thomas had just seen a ghost.
