Narrator: "Gilda the Griffon's work in the countryside was full of surprises, but she was frightened of bulls and cows, and she remained very lazy and stubborn.

One day, Braeburn brought Scootaloo to the station where Pipsqueak was grumpily shunting."

Braeburn: "Hello, Pipsqueak. I see Gilda's left the milk behind again."

Pipsqueak: "I'll have to make a special journey with it, I suppose. Anyone would think I'd nothing to do!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Pipsqueak."

Braeburn: "Tell you what,"

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn."

Braeburn: "I'll take the milk, you fetch my changelings."

Narrator: "The drivers and stationmaster agreed.

Pipsqueak had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the changelings about."

Pipsqueak: "Hurry along!"

Narrator: "He said.

The changelings grumbled to each other."

Changelings: "This is Braeburn's place! Pipsqueak's got no right to poke his head in here and push us around."

Narrator: "They whispered and passed the word.

Changelings: "Pay Pipsqueak back! Pay Pipsqueak back!"

Pipsqueak: "Come along,"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "No nonsense!"

Changelings: "We'll give him nonsense!"

Narrator: "Giggled the Changelings.

But they followed so quietly, that Pipsqueak thought they were under control.

Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead;

All animals stop to pin down brakes."

Pipsqueak: "Peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please!"

Narrator: "But before he could check them, the changelings surged ahead."

Changelings: "On! On!"

Narrator: "They yelled."

Pipsqueak: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "Whistled Pipsqueak.

The man on duty rushed to warn traffic with his red flag, but was too late to switch Pipsqueak to the runaway siding.

Frantically trying to grip the road, Pipsqueak slid into the yard."

Pipsqueak: "Peep peep! Look out!"


Narrator: "Pipsqueak's driver and fireman had jumped clear, but Pipsqueak was stranded.

Next day, Hoity Toity arrived. Braeburn and Gilda had helped to clear the wreckage, but Pipsqueak remained on his perch of changelings."

Hoity Toity: "We must now try,"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity,"

Hoity Toity: "To run the road with Braeburn and the griffon. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I am sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Hoity Toity: "You must stay there until we are ready."

Narrator: "Continued Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "And you really must be more careful with changelings."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak sighed. The changeling groaned beneath his hooves. He quite understood about awkward predicaments.

Hoity Toity spoke severely to Gilda, too."

Hoity Toity: "My animals work hard. I send lazy animals away."

Narrator: "Gilda was ashamed."

Hoity Toity: "However, Braeburn says you worked hard after Pipsqueak's accident, so you shall have another chance."

Gilda: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Gilda."

Gilda: "I will work hard. Breaburn says he'll help me."

Hoity Toity: "Excellent. What Braeburn doesn't know about road problems isn't worth knowing. Our Breaburn's an experienced pony."

Narrator: "Next day, Spike came back, and Pipsqueak was sent to be mended.

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were delighted to see Spike again, and he took them for a run at once.

All are now friends, and Braeburn has taught Gilda a great deal. She shooed a cow off the line the other day all by herself. That shows you, doesn't it?"
