  • George Carlin: Percy works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Percy: Peep peep! Hurry up, Gordon, the train's ready.
  • George Carlin: Gordon thought he was late.
  • Percy: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy and showed him a train of dirty coal cars. Gordon thought how he can pay Percy back for teasing him. Next it was James' turn.
  • Percy: Stay in the shed today, James. Sir Topham Hatt will come and see you.
  • James: Ah!
  • George Carlin: Thought James.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt knows I'm a fine engine. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • George Carlin: James' driver and fireman could not make him move. The other engines grumbled dreadfully. They had to do James' work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, James. You can't stay here all day.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • James: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Oh, where's Percy?
  • George Carlin: Percy had wisely disappeared. When Sir Topham Hatt came back, he was cross with James and Percy for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Percy was still being cheeky.
  • Percy: I say, you engines, I'm to take some freight cars to Thomas' junction. Sir Topham Hatt chose me specially. He must know I'm a really useful engine.
  • James: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled James. Gordon looked across to James. They were going to play a trick on Percy.
  • Gordon: James and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then I needn't say that to a really useful engine like you, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Percy felt flattered.
  • James: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • James: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Percy: No thank you, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I know all about signals.
  • George Carlin: Percy was a little worried.
  • Percy: I wonder what backing signals are.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Percy: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: He puffed crossly to his freight cars and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Percy: Bother, it's a danger.
  • George Carlin: The signal moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Percy had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Percy: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing signals.
  • Driver: Come on, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Percy: But it's a backing signal.
  • George Carlin: Percy protested and told him about Gordon and James. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Percy: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • George Carlin: He was too late. Gordon saw everything.
  • (Percy heads his way back to the sheds)
  • George Carlin: That night, the big engines talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Percy thought they were being very silly.
