  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then start with the Season 8-10 intro and we then go to the Island of Sodor opening sequence)
  • 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! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • 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 occurs and we begin It's Good To Be Gordon)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Good To Be Gordon. Gordon is a beautiful blue engine with a great big boiler, and a separate tender for his coal. Gordon's favorite job is to pull the express. One beautiful spring morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Today Gordon, if you pull the express across the island and back again on time, then you will set a new Sodor record.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon was excited. He wanted to set a new record more than anything.
  • Thomas: Hooray for Gordon!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas. And all the engines tooted. Gordon steamed over to the Coal Depot. He rolled under a coal chute and his tender was quickly filled. Gordon started puffing away when the yard manager called.
  • Yard Manager: Stop, Gordon! You've been given Henry's special coal by mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon knew that Henry needed special coal. But he thought Henry's coal would help him go faster. So he pretended not to hear. Henry had to take Tar Wagons to Knapford. He rolled his tender under the chute and waited for his coal.
  • Yard Manager: I'm sorry, Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the yard manager.
  • Yard Manager: There's no special coal left. You'll have to use ordinary coal today.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry was worried. Ordinary coal clod his firebox and stop him making steam. But he knew he had work to do.
  • Henry: It's only for one day.
  • Michael Brandon: He said bravely.
  • Henry: I'll will try my very best.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon arrived at Knapford Station. His passengers boarded and he happily set off right on time. Soon, Gordon was chuffing as fast as he could. He didn't know it was Henry's coal or the crisp bright there. But today, it felt good to be Gordon. It didn't feel good to be Henry. Henry's tar cars were very heavy and his engine didn't like the ordinary coal. Gordon steamed across the island.
  • Gordon: A record is mine, a record is mine!
  • Michael Brandon: Henry was having a terrible time. He was rocking and rolling, coughing and wheezing.
  • Henry: The workmen are waiting, the workmen are waiting!
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped. Thomas thought Henry looked very sick indeed. Gordon was making good time and feeling grand.
  • Thomas: Have you seen Henry?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Thomas worriedly.
  • Thomas: He looked very sick.
  • Gordon: I'm sure Henry is fine.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon hooted.
  • Thomas: But his face was as green as his tender.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed. Now Gordon began to wish he hadn't taken Henry's coal. But he still wanted to set a new record. So when the signal changed, Gordon puffed on. But no matter how fast Gordon went, he couldn't get away from the bad feeling in his boiler. Gordon wasn't enjoying being Gordon anymore. Gordon had to stop to led off passengers. Henry was taking on water. Henry's face was green. His axles were shaking and dark smoke billowed from his funnel.
  • Gordon: Are you feeling all right?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Gordon.
  • Henry: (coughing) I didn't get my special coal this morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Coughed Henry.
  • Henry: My firebox feels funny.
  • Michael Brandon: But then, it was time for Gordon to go.
  • (Guard's whistle blows)
  • Henry: Hooray for Gordon!
  • Michael Brandon: Wheezed Henry.
  • Henry: You'll set a new record for sure.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon could see Knapford Station up ahead. Sir Topham Hatt was there. Gordon was on time and going to set a new record. But Gordon's bad feeling was now so strong he thought his boiler would burst. Gordon slowed to a halt.
  • Driver: You're going to be late.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried his driver.
  • Gordon: I don't care.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Gordon and he started to reverse. Gordon soon reach Henry. Henry had stop for a rest. He was surprised to see Gordon.
  • Gordon: I took your special coal this morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I wanted to go faster than ever. I'm very sorry. But now, I have a good idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon and Henry swap tenders. Soon Henry's firebox was full of special coal. Henry felt better right away.
  • Henry: Thank you, Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed happily, and together they puffed off to Knapford Station. But Gordon and the express were late. Only Thomas was there. Sir Topham Hatt had gone home for his tea.
  • Henry: I'm sorry you didn't set a new record today.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Henry.
  • Gordon: And I'm sorry I took your coal.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon.
  • Thomas: Who holds the old record?
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Gordon: Why, I do. (laughs)
  • Michael Brandon: Said Gordon. And the good friends laugh.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin James The Second Best)
  • Michael Brandon: James The Second Best. James and Edward have the same size. They both have black funnels, buffers at the front, and tenders at the back. And they are both engines on Sir Topham Hatt's Railway. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt brought a photographer to Tidmouth Sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This year, there is to be a holiday poster for the railway.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And I need an engine to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: All the engines were very excited. James was sure his photographer would be taken.
  • James: I will look wonderful on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thought James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The engine on the Sodor Railway poster will be...Edward!
  • Michael Brandon: Announced Sir Topham Hatt. Edward was delighted. But James couldn't believe it. He was sure a red engine would be just the thing for the poster. The photographer try to take a picture of Edward, but James got in the way.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, leave the shed now.
  • Michael Brandon: Ordered Sir Topham Hatt. James puffed sadly away. Soon the posters were seen all over the island. But James still want to be the poster engine.
  • James: I wonder why Edward was chosen instead of me?
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed.
  • Henry: Because,
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Edward is always gentle with the freight cars.
  • Percy: And he doesn't mind doing the dirty jobs.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy.
  • Thomas: And he's always on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. James was cross.
  • James: I can do all those things too.
  • Michael Brandon: Podded James.
  • James: I'll show you that I'm good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: And he chuffed away. The next day, Edward and Thomas were working in the yard. Edward shunted his freight cars softly and smoothly. When James arrived, he shunted his freight cars softly and smoothly too.
  • James: See? I can be gentle just like Edward.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed James.
  • James: I am good enough to be on the poster.
  • Thomas: Edward finished a long time ago.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's already delivered his coal. That's why he's the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: James wanted to be as good as Edward, so he raced off to collect his coal cars. James delivered dirty coal cars all afternoon. He became greasy, grimy and grubby and his bright shiny red coat was soon covered in coal dust.
  • James: See?
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed James.
  • James: I can get just as dirty as Edward. I am good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: But James was so dirty it took a long time to get him clean. James was soaped and scrubbed. They even brushed behind his buffers.
  • Percy: Your gentle shunting and getting dirty has made you late for your passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy cheekily.
  • Percy: Edward is always on time. That's why he's the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Then, James had an idea.
  • James: If I take Gordon's express line instead of the branch line,
  • Michael Brandon: He thought.
  • James: I will arrive before Edward and collect my passengers first. That will show everyone I'm good enough to be on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: So James puffed on to Gordon's line. They he raced across the countryside. James rattled over bridges and clattered through tunnels. He really wanted to get in front of Edward. James puffed back on to Edward's line.
  • James: It worked!
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed James.
  • James: I'm first!
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly the signal turned red. James applied his brakes and screeched to a halt, but Edward couldn't stop in time.
  • (Crash!)
  • Edward: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Edward.
  • Edward: I didn't have time to stop.
  • James: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned James.
  • James: It was my fault for pushing in.
  • Thomas: You're finally in the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuckled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe you're not good enough after all.
  • Michael Brandon: But James didn't feel very good. He felt very silly. Soon, Emily arrived with Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, your racing around has caused confusion and delay.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said sternly.
  • James: Yes sir, sorry sir.
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward, your cylinder has been damaged. You can't take the children to the seaside today.
  • Michael Brandon: The children at the station were very sad.
  • Children: But we wanted to ride on the poster engine.
  • Michael Brandon: The children cried. James felt worse than ever.
  • James: Please, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: James puffed.
  • James: If I was a back engine, all the children could still ride on Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What a wonderful idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Edward and his passenger cars were very heavy. But James pushed him slowly to the seaside. His pistons pumped and his axles ached, but James pressed on. They stopped along way to pick up more children.
  • Children: It's Edward!
  • Michael Brandon: The children cheered.
  • Children: And look at James! He's pushing him! Isn't James a grand engine for being so kind?
  • Michael Brandon: James was so proud it made his boiler bubbled. He felt more useful than he had ever felt before.
  • Edward: Even thought you weren't the engine on the poster.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Edward.
  • Edward: You are still really useful.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Emily and The Special Cars)
  • Michael Brandon: Emily and The Special Cars. It was summer on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were excited. Gordon had set a new record for pulling the express. Emily was on her way to pick up two very special passenger cars. They had been newly painted to celebrate Gordon's record. Sir Topham Hatt was going to present them to Gordon. Emily had stopped to take on water. Diesel pulled up alongside her.
  • Diesel: You look very pleased with yourself.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel. Emily told him all about Gordon's record and collecting the passenger cars.
  • Diesel: Gordon is not the only one who's special.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel oiled proudly.
  • Emily: Well, there's nothing special about smelly old diesels.
  • Michael Brandon: Pouted Emily.
  • Emily: I haven't time to listen to you. I have to collect more coal.
  • Michael Brandon: And Emily steamed off. This made Diesel very cross and he rattled away. Later, Emily arrived at the yards. But Gordon's special cars weren't there.
  • Thomas: Diesel has already collected them.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: He said it was his job.
  • Emily: But that was my job.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Emily: I'll have to find them. I mustn't be late for the presentation ceremony.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed quickly across the island. She was looking for Diesel and the special cars. Suddenly, Emily saw Diesel waiting at a signal. He was coupled up to Gordon's special passenger cars.
  • Emily: Why have you take Gordon's cars?
  • Michael Brandon: She snapped sharply.
  • Diesel: Because...
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel began.
  • Emily: I haven't got time to listen to you.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Emily: Give me those cars.
  • Diesel: Not if you won't listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Diesel and he sped away. Emily chased after Diesel. It was getting later and later and Emily was worried. But as usual, Diesel was being devious. He knew all the tricks and many different tracks. Emily just couldn't catch him and he made her look foolish. Emily steamed into Maithwaite Station. Sir Topham Hatt was there.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where are Gordon's special cars?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked her.
  • Emily: Diesel took them, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We must find them at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt. And he climbed aboard Emily. Diesel had hidden the cars in a siding. But he wasn't feeling well. Something was wrong. He started to slow down. Up ahead, Diesel saw Emily with Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Diesel: Now I'm in trouble.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Diesel!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Where are Gordon's special cars?
  • Diesel: They're in a siding, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Diesel quietly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take Emily there at once.
  • Michael Brandon: Ordered Sir Topham Hatt crossly.
  • Diesel: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel. Diesel showed Emily the cars in the siding. Emily saw black smoke coming from Diesel's engine.
  • Emily: What's wrong with your engine?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily.
  • Diesel: My engine's old.
  • Michael Brandon: Splattered Diesel.
  • Diesel: All that rushing around is warming out.
  • Emily: Then you shouldn't taken your passenger cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Emily.
  • Diesel: And you shouldn't listen to me.
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Diesel.
  • Emily: Why should I listen to a smelly old diesel?
  • Diesel: Because Gordon is the only one who set a record.
  • Michael Brandon: Oiled Diesel quietly.
  • Diesel: I set one too.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was surprised.
  • Emily: Have you?
  • Michael Brandon: She wheeshed. This time, she listened.
  • Diesel: I shunted more freight cars in one day than any other diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel oiled and he spluttered sadly away.
  • Emily: Oh, dear.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily sadly.
  • Emily: Diesel is just as special as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily raced to Knapford with Gordon's special cars. Now she wanted Diesel to feel special too. As she puffed to Knapford Station, Emily had an idea. She told Sir Topham Hatt all about Diesel's record. And about her idea to make Diesel feel special. Sir Topham Hatt listen carefully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a very good idea, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Show Diesel to come here this afternoon.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily found Diesel. She told him he had to go to Knapford. Then Emily raced off to collect Diesel's surprise. Later at Knapford, Sir Topham Hatt presented Gordon with his special cars.
  • Gordon: Don't my passenger cars look splendid?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon proudly. Everyone agreed. Just then, Emily puffed into the station.
  • Emily: And this new diesel motor is for you, Diesel.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Emily. Diesel was surprised.
  • Diesel: Whoa!
  • Emily: I'm sorry I didn't listen.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Now I know that diesels and steamies are both special.
  • Michael Brandon: Everyone cheered for Gordon and Diesel.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Party Time)

  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Colors)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Colors. All the engines on Sodor enjoy pulling passenger cars. Taking passengers makes them feel proud and useful. Sir Topham Hatt had an important announcement to make.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Today is the day of the big football game.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The Sodor school team will play a team from the mainland.
  • Michael Brandon: All the engines were very excited.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Whoever finish their jobs first will pull the Sodor team.
  • Michael Brandon: Last year, James had pulled the Sodor team. His passenger cars have been decorated with ribbons and flags. Everyone had cheered. This year, Thomas wanted to pull the Sodor team cars. He was going to try hard to finish his jobs first. Soon, Thomas' work was done. He was sure he had finished first. And he steamed proudly to the yards. But when he puffed into the yards, there was James. James had finished all his jobs first.
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • James: Look, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed James proudly.
  • James: Don't these flags look wonderful on me?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was upset.
  • Thomas: But you pulled the team cars last year.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed.
  • James: And I'm pulling them again this year.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: Because I finished all my jobs and I got to the yards first.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was very unhappy.
  • Thomas: It's not fair.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. He wanted to find a way to make James change his mind. James was on his way to collect the Sodor team. But he had to stop at a signal. Thomas puffed up next to him.
  • Thomas: I've got an idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Why don't you take Sir Topham Hatt to the game? He will have the trophy. That's the best job. Then I can take the Sodor cars for you.
  • Michael Brandon: But James didn't want to take Sir Topham Hatt or the trophy. He thought wearing the team colors was much more exciting. Thomas tried to think another way to make James change his mind. James puffed along by the canal. Thomas raced up alongside.
  • Thomas: Wait, James!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Look at your reflection. Green flags spoiled your bright red paint.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. But James didn't think so. He thought he looked splendid. And he puffed off smiling. Thomas' idea to take the team hadn't worked. He had to pick up another one. James was still puffing proudly to collect the Sodor team. Thomas was puffing along too. He was thinking hard. Suddenly, an idea flew into his funnel. Thomas pulled up to the signalbox. He was pleased that James hadn't yet arrived.
  • Thomas: Quick sir, you must change the points!
  • Michael Brandon: So the signalman pulled up big lever. Then, Thomas watch James fly into the siding. The siding had been used for a long time. It was very overgrown. Thomas heard scratching and scraping sounds. When Thomas saw what had happened, he could not believe his eyes.
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. All the green and white flags had been ripped from James' funnel and cab.
  • James: The Sodor team colors are ruined!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried James. Thomas felt terrible.
  • Thomas: I'll go for help.
  • Michael Brandon: He said, and he steamed quickly away. Thomas felt very silly. He wanted to take the team and he had spoiled everything. Just then, he saw Bertie. Bertie was taking children to the football game. They were all carrying flags and wearing scarves. But Bertie had broken down. Smoke was coming from his radiator, and his engine made a wheezing sound.
  • Bertie: Please, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Can you take the children to the football game for me?
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, Bertie.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: But I have to help James.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt bad. He had already got James into trouble and now he couldn't help Bertie. Suddnely, Thomas had an idea.
  • Thomas: I can take your passengers, Bertie, and I can help James too.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas quickly collected Annie and Clarabel and he took the children to the siding. They had a wonderful time. They decorated James with their scarves and flags. He looked splendid. When James arrived at the football field, everybody cheered. They all thought he looked wonderful.
  • James: I look even better than last year.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed James proudly. Thomas was very pleased.
  • Thomas: Maybe I could pull the school team next year.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas asked hopefully. James thought that was a grand idea.
  • Thomas: But only if you get to the yards first.
  • Michael Brandon: He teased.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Duncan Drops A Clanger)
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan Drops A Clanger. It was a busy time on the Narrow Gauge Railway. It was the day at the County Fair. The little engines puff through the forests and valleys getting ready for the big day. Rusty was taking freight cars full of flowers. Peter Sam was taking pumpkins. And Duncan had a very special job to do. He had to collect the big bell from the clock tower to be polished. On the way, Duncan puffed along an old and bumpy track. It was his favorite part of the railway. Each day, Duncan was rattled along the tracks. He enjoyed the sound his wheels made. Duncan raced backwards and forwards. Rattling and clattering over the buffers. Rheneas chuffed up.
  • Rheneas: Duncan, you're going to be late.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped. But Duncan didn't hear Rheneas. His wheels were rattling and clattering too loud. When Duncan finally arrived at the Transfer Yards, he was very late. And the foreman was cross. Workmen were waiting with a large wooden frame. Inside was the big bell. The bell chimed cheerfully as it was loaded onto Duncan's flatbed.
  • Duncan: What a wonderful sound.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Duncan.
  • Foreman: Remember.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the foreman sternly.
  • Foreman: The bell is very heavy. The track to the polishers is old and in need of some repairs. You must go slowly and carefully.
  • Michael Brandon: But Duncan wasn't listening to the foreman. He was enjoying the chiming of the bell. Duncan chuffed along the track to the polishers. As he puff through the mountains, his wheels started to clatter. And the bell started to chime. Duncan went faster. The bell chimed louder. With every bump and bent, it rattled and ranged. It tinkled and clanged. Duncan like the sound even more than the sound of his wheels. He was having a wonderful time.
  • Duncan: Whee!
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed and the bell rang louder and louder.
  • Rusty: (horn honks) Slow down!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Rusty. But Duncan didn't hear.
  • Duncan: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan hooted.
  • Skarloey: Take care!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Skarloey.
  • Duncan: Whoosh!
  • Michael Brandon: Hooped Duncan.
  • Mighty Mac: The bell will come loose!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Mighty Mac. But still, Duncan didn't listen. He rattled on. The track was getting bumpier and the bell chimed louder. Sir Handel was taking on water. He saw Duncan racing towards him.
  • Duncan: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Duncan.
  • Sir Handel: Slow down!
  • Michael Brandon: Hooted Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: The track was very wobbly!
  • Duncan: Listen to my bell, Sir Handel!
  • Michael Brandon: Hooshed Duncan.
  • Duncan: Isn't it wonderful?
  • Michael Brandon: Then, there was trouble. Duncan's wheels rattled over the wobbly track. He applied his brakes, but it was too late. The flatbed bumped into the air, the bell tumbled over the flatbed and rolled down the hill. "Clang, clang, blang!" went the bell as if fell and fell.
  • Duncan: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Duncan.
  • Duncan: I've lost the bell. Now it won't be polished for the County Fair.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed sadly.
  • Duncan: It's all my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Everywhere was still and quiet. Then, Duncan heard a noise.
  • Duncan: That sounds like a bell.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed quietly. And he listened very hard.
  • Duncan: The bell.
  • Michael Brandon: He hooted.
  • Duncan: It's my bell! Oh! Maybe if I listen and follow the sound.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan puffed.
  • Duncan: I will find the bell.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan followed the sound.
  • Duncan: It's getting loud.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed excitedly. At last, Duncan could see the bell. It was caught in the tree. The wind blew gently and the bell chimed sweetly. Duncan raced down the hill. And he arrived just in time. The branch snapped and the bell fell onto his flatbed.
  • Duncan: Hooray!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Duncan. He was very happy. Duncan puffed to the polishers. This time, he puffed slowly carefully just has he been told. Soon the bell was polished and Duncan chuffed slowly and carefully all the way back to the Transfer Yards. Duncan delivered the shiny bell just in time. And when the clock chimed for the opening at the County Fair, Duncan thought it was the best sound he had ever heard.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and Skarloey's Big Day Out)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Skarloey's Big Day Out. It was a beautiful bright summer on the Island of Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine was taking passengers to the seaside. In the summer holidays, Thomas went there nearly every day. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have an important special for you.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need you to take some steel pipes to the wharf.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was delighted. There were lots to sights to see on the way to the wharf. First, Thomas pass the Scottish castle. Next, he went to Shen Valley. And finally, he looked at the wonderful view from the top of Gordon's Hill. But when Thomas arrived at the wharf, he saw Skarloey. Skarloey looked very sad. He had broken down.
  • Skarloey: There's no one to take me to the repairers yards.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey chuffed.
  • Thomas: Maybe I can take you.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Please, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas asked the Narrow Gauge Controller.
  • Thomas: Can I take Skarloey to the repairers?
  • Mr. Percival: Skarloey is very heavy.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the Narrow Gauge Controller.
  • Thomas: I'm sure I can pull him.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I finished all my other jobs.
  • Mr. Percival: Very well.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the Narrow Gauge Controller.
  • Mr. Percival: But you must go straight there.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Mr. Percival: The coupling on that flatbed is old, so take care.
  • Michael Brandon: He added. So Skarloey was loaded on the flatbed. Skarloey was sad.
  • Skarloey: I don't like going to the repairers.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Thomas wanted to cheer Skarloey up.
  • Thomas: I'll show you some wonderful new sights. Sights you never see in the mountains.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas cheerfully.
  • Thomas: This will be your big day out.
  • Michael Brandon: And Thomas puffed away pulling his friend carefully behind him. So, Thomas didn't take Skarloey straight to the repairers. He puffed through the farms and forests. Until they arrived at the Scottish Castle.
  • Thomas: There.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas proudly.
  • Thomas: Isn't it wonderful?
  • Skarloey: It's very nice.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: But we have a castle at the mountains.
  • Thomas: Then I'll show you Shen Valley.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Thomas and Skarloey puff through the flowerly fields and the green meadows of Shen Valley.
  • Thomas: There.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas grandly.
  • Skarloey: It's very nice.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: But we have green valleys in the mountains.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt sad. He wanted Skarloey to have a big day out. He had to find something Skarloey had never seen before.
  • Thomas: I know.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll show you from the view from the top of Gordon's Hill.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas huff and puff up Gordon's Hill. Skarloey was very heavy. The old flatbed coupling creek and groan. But still, Thomas huff and chuff as hard as he could. Then, there was trouble. Just as he got to the top of the hill, the coupling came loose and Skarloey rolled backwards.
  • Skarloey: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Skarloey, but it was too late. Skarloey's flatbed biffed into the sidings and came off the track.
  • Thomas: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: The Narrow Gauge Controller told me to go straight to the repairers yard. But I wanted to give you a big day out. Now look what's happened.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was very unhappy. So Thomas' driver coupled them up again to the flatbed. Thomas pulled Skarloey and the flatbed carefully back onto the tracks and they set off to the repairers yard. Thomas' didn't try to show Skarloey anymore sights. He puffed as fast as he could to do his job. The fastest way to the repairers yard was the track by the seaside. Thomas had to stop at a signal. Skarloey looked out at the sea in the sun. They were sandcastles, donkey rides and children eating ice cream. It looked marvelous.
  • Skarloey: It's wonderful!
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: I've never seen anything like that before.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey was so excited it made his axles tingle. Thomas was surprised and delighted.
  • Thomas: I see the beach almost every day.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted happily. Thomas took Skarloey to the repairers.
  • Thomas: I'll wait and take you back.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas.
  • Skarloey: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Skarloey. When he was repaired, Thomas took Skarloey to look at the beach once again.
  • Skarloey: This is the best big day out ever!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Skarloey. Thomas was delighted.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Engine Roll Call)
  • 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.
