Script

  • (We open this airing with a CGI Thomas passing over a bridge)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 8-10 intro. After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surrounded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: Hello, Thomas!
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (An engine puffing by sequence then happens and we start today's episode)
  • Michael Brandon: Today on the Island of Sodor, we find out what happens when Thomas has to do important job without Annie and Clarabel. But first, James looks forward to a new coat of paint.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin James Gets A New Coat)
  • Michael Brandon: All Sir Topham Hatt's engines like to look clean, bright and shiny. They love being washed down and having their brassed polished until it gleams. James was in the workshop being repainted. He was beside himself with joy. James thought being repainted meant he was special. The workmen painted and polished for hour upon hour. Then with new paint shining, brass tinkling, and blacking black, James returned to Tidmouth Sheds.
  • James: Look, aren't I a beautiful red?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked the others.
  • James: No wonder Sir Topham Hatt thinks I'm special.
  • Michael Brandon: But Percy was worried. He wasn't being repainted and he wasn't red.
  • Percy: Does this mean Sir Topham Hatt doesn't think I'm special?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked.
  • Thomas: Looking splendid is not the same as being really useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas firmly.
  • James: But best of all is being really useful and looking splendid like me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James cheerfully. Before Thomas could say anything else, James close his eyes and fell happily asleep. The next morning, all the engines were very busy. Percy was working at the coal plant. Thomas and Emily were taking passengers up and down the branch lines. Gordon was pulling the express. Sir Topham Hatt came to see James. He told him to join Percy at the coal plant at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The coal cars must reach brendam docks before the boat sails, so no dilly-dallying.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • James: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James and he set off at once. But James didn't go straight to the coaling plant. He decided to go by the canal instead. Then he could see himself in the water for yard, after yard, after yard.
  • James: Magnificent.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. James had forgotten what Sir Topham Hatt had said. At the coal yard, Percy was working as hard as he could. But he was falling behind. The line of coal cars were getting longer and longer. And the yard manager was getting crosser and crosser. Where could James be? James was still enjoying himself. But there was no one around to share his fun. So he headed for Wellsworth Station. But as James pulled into Wellsworth Station, Gordon and the express were pulling out. The passengers had gone.
  • James: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James. He was disappointed and he left the station. James headed straight for the branch lines. James saw Thomas.
  • James: Look at me.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • James: Don't I look fine?
  • Thomas: You should be at work.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Thomas. But James didn't listen to Thomas. James was enjoying being James. But Percy wasn't enjoying being Percy. He was trying his hardest, but the troublesome trucks were being very naughty. Poor Percy was almost worn out.
  • Yard Manager: What will happen to the order?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the yard manager. When James rolled into the coal plant, it was late in the afternoon. Percy was cross. So was the yard manager.
  • Yard Manager: To make up for lost time...
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Yard Manager: ...you must take an extra long line of coal cars to the docks.
  • Michael Brandon: James was delighted. The docks were always bustling with engines and people.
  • James: It's the place to be seen.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Percy: The troublesome trucks are being very naughty.
  • Michael Brandon: Warned Percy. But James still wasn't listening. James puffed along, looking forward to be seen. But the troublesome trucks were naughtier than ever. They rocked and rolled, and crashed and bashed. James' face was soon covered in soot. Rolling downhill, the troublesome trucks wiggled and giggled. James had to put his brakes on with a jolt. Coal tumbled out of the troublesome trucks, landing on James. James was cross, and biffed the troublesome trucks as hard as he could. More coal flew out. Now, James didn't want to be seen. He was as dirty as he had even been. But on his way to the docks, he kept passing his friends. He passed Emily, and Edward, and Thomas. Thomas thought the only red thing left on James was his face. James trundled into brendam docks. He hoped no one would see him. But Gordon was at the docks with the express. He could not believe his eyes. He thought James was the grubbiest, grimiest, dustiest, dirtiest engine he had ever seen. Percy arrived safely with the last of the coal cars.
  • Percy: I like your new coat of paint.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed cheekily.
  • Percy: You do look splendid.
  • Michael Brandon: James knew he should have listened. He didn't feel splendid anymore. But for the first time all day, James could hear clearly. He could hear the sound of the troublesome trucks giggling at him. And despite feeling foolish, even James had to smile.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Every engine on the Island of Sodor looks different. Can you tell who this is? This engine is green. But there are lots of green engines on Sodor. What else can we see? This engine only has two wheels on each side. This is a small engine. Do you know who it is yet? Let's see if there's another clue. It's the number six. Which engine on Sodor is number six? That's right. It's Percy. Hello, Percy.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily)
  • Children: (singing) There's no one quite like Emily Friendly, emerald Emily You don't need to ask her twice When you want some sound advice All those who know Emily Know what shows especially She's got that certain "you-know-what" There's no one quite like Emily. Sometimes she can't help herself And gets misunderstood Things can sometimes turn out wrong When all she meant was good. There's no one quite like Emily Friendly, emerald Emily You don't need to ask her twice When you want some sound advice All those who know Emily Know what shows especially She's got that certain "you-know-what" There's no one quite like Emily. Clever, cheerful, confident She really knows her stuff She's the one to get things done While others huff and puff. There's no one quite like Emily Friendly, emerald Emily You don't need to ask her twice When you want some sound advice All those who know Emily Know what shows especially She's got that certain "you-know-what" There's no one quite like Emily.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas is puffing to the painters. It is time to have a fresh coat of paint. Thomas wonders if he could be a different color. What color could Thomas be painted instead of blue? What if he were red like James? Then he would be the color of a Sodor post box or the same color as Bertie the bus. What if he were green like Henry? Then he would be the color of grass or the leaves on the trees. Thomas thinks red and green are lovely colors. He doesn't want to be blue anymore. Then he puffs past Trevor. Trevor is covered with lots of bright blue ribbons. He's been decorated to the fair.
  • Thomas: Blue is quite a nice color.
  • Michael Brandon: Says Thomas.
  • Thomas: For ribbons.
  • Michael Brandon: Then Thomas arrives at the station. Can you see anything here that is blue? There's a beautiful bunch of blue balloons.
  • Thomas: Blue can be nice for balloons too.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffs Thomas.
  • Thomas: I wonder if anything else is blue.
  • Michael Brandon: Says Thomas. Can you see anything else is blue? Of course. The sky is blue.
  • Thomas: If ribbons can be blue, and balloons can be blue and the sky is blue, then blue is a jolly good color for engines after all.
  • Michael Brandon: Says Thomas. Thomas is very happy to be painted blue.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Saves The Day)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a glorious summer day on the Island of Sodor. Toby was collecting milk from the dairy. James was pulling passengers to Brendam Docks. And Thomas was taking some workmen to work. They were building a new station. Every day, Thomas had to take the workmen there and bring them home again.
  • Thomas: I can't wait for the grand opening!
  • Michael Brandon: He told Annie and Clarabel excitedly.
  • Thomas: There's going to be flags and a big band.
  • Michael Brandon: There was a difficult bend in the track. Thomas didn't like it at all. He was worried about the bend. But his good friends, Annie and Clarabel, were there to help him.
  • Annie: Slow down.
  • Michael Brandon: They sang out.
  • Clarabel: Slow down and puff with care!
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas did slow down and he puffed with care.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed to Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: I couldn't have done it without you.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas arrived safely at the station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Today, Annie and Clarabel are to go for their refit.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must take them to the workshops straight away.
  • Thomas: But how will I take the workmen home?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can use ordinary coaches instead.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. And he puffed away to the workshop. Thomas said goodbye to Annie and Clarabel. He was sad.
  • Thomas: I don't know how I'll manage the difficult bend without you.
  • Michael Brandon: He told his friends. The next day, Thomas puffed to the coach yard. He was still thinking about the difficult bend. Thomas went too fast and gave the coaches a mighty biff. The coaches rolled along the line and bumped into James.
  • James: Watch were you're doing!
  • Michael Brandon: James snorted.
  • Thomas: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed. Thomas was missing Annie and Clarabel. He would never have biffed into them. Soon Thomas was on his way to pick up the workers at the new station.
  • Thomas: Difficult bend, difficult bend.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed nervously. The difficult bend came nearer and nearer. Thomas was supposed to slow down, but he wanted to get past the bend quickly. So Thomas went faster and faster. The coaches rattled and shook.
  • Thomas: Soon be over, soon be over.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas said to himself. And soon it was!
  • (Thomas
  • Michael Brandon: Luckily, no one was hurt... but Thomas felt sadder than ever. Harvey arrived to clear up the mess. Harvey didn't like seeing Thomas so unhappy.
  • Thomas: I can't go around the difficult bend.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas wheeshed sadly.
  • Thomas: I'm not a useful engine without Annie and Clarabel.
  • Harvey: You are a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Harvey.
  • Harvey: And a jolly good friend.
  • Michael Brandon: And he puffed away. Thomas trundled slowly back to Tidmouth Sheds. He was very sad. He wanted to be back with Annie and Clarabel. Suddenly, Thomas saw a line of troublesome trucks rushing towards him. They had come uncoupled from Edward.
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: The troublesome trucks are heading for the new station and they're going too fast! I must warn the stationmaster!
  • Michael Brandon: So he raced after them. The troublesome trucks clattered along the track. Thomas was determined to save the new station. So he dashed after the runaway trucks. Thomas went faster and faster. He raced past the troublesome trucks, but he was nearly at the difficult bend. Thomas wanted to go fast, but he knew he couldn't.
  • Thomas: Slow down.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas to himself.
  • Thomas: Slow down and puff with care!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas applied his brakes. He slowed down and puffed very carefully. He made it around the difficult bend, all by himself.
  • Thomas: I've done it!
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. But so did the runaway trucks. Thomas puffed as fast as he could. And he raced into the station just in time.
  • Thomas: Runaway trucks are coming!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: You must change the points!
  • Michael Brandon: The signalman quickly changed the points. The troublesome trucks hurdled into a siding. They biffed and bashed the buffers! But the station was safe. The next day, Thomas was back with Annie and Clarabel. They were going to the grand opening of the new station. They chugged along happily together and when they came to a difficult bend, Thomas slowed down and puffed with care. The difficult bend wasn't difficult anymore. The grand opening was a great success and the new station looked wonderful. Sir Topham Hatt came to see Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have saved my new station.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a very brave and useful engine.
  • Thomas: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. He was so proud, it made his firebox glow.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and Engine Roll Call starts)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. Thomas - he's the cheeky one, James - is vain but lots of fun, Percy - pulls the mail on time, Gordon - thunders down the line, Emily - really knows her stuff, Henry - toots and huffs and puffs, Edward - wants to help and share, Toby - well let's say, he's square. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
