Narrator: Adult Kovu, Bagheera and Mufasa were misarable. they had been locked up for several days for being naughty and longed to be let out again. At last Professor Porter arrived.
Professor Porter: "I hope you are sorry",
Narrator: he said
Professor Porter: and understand that you are not so important after all. We have a new warthog called Pumbaa who helps pull monkeys and Timon and Adult Simba have worked the main line nicely. But I will let you out now if you promise to be good"
Mufasa: "Yes sir",
Narrator: said the Animals.
Bagheera "We will.
Professor Porter: "That's right. But please remember that this no shunting nonsence must stop".
Narrator: He then told Pumbaa, Adult Simba and Timon that they could go and play on the land for a few days. And they ran off happily to find Ameila and Abigail at the junction. The two geese were so pleased to see Timon again. Adult Simba and Pumbaa played with Hyenas.
Hyenas: "Stop, stop stop!
Narrator: screamed the Hyenas as they were pushed into thier proper sidings. but the two animals laughed and went on shunting until the Hyenas were tidily arranged. Next Adult Simba took some Hyenas to the Quarry. Pumbaa was left alone. He mind that a bit. He liked watching Animals and being cheeky to the other animals.
Pumbaa: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"
Narrator: He would call and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Pumbaa was waiting for the signalman to set the points that he could get back to the land. He was eager to work, but being rather careless and not paying attention. Adult Simba had warned Pumbaa;
Adult Simba: "Be careful on the main line; whistle to the signalman you are there."
Narrator: But Pumbaa didn't remember to whistle. So the busy signalman forgot him. Pumbaa waited and waited the points were still against so he couldn't move then he look along the land
Pumbaa: "Peep! Peep! he whistled in horror for rushing straight towards him was Mufasa with the monkeys.
Narrator: groand Mufasa.
Mufasa: "Get out of my way".
Narrator: Pumbaa opened his eyes. Mufasa had stopped with Pumbaa's legs a few inches from his own. But Pumbaa had begun to move.
Pumbaa: "I won't stay here. I'll run away
Narrator: he puffed. he went straight through Adult Simba's land and was so frightened that he ran right up Mufasa's Hill without stopping. After that he was tired but he couldn't stop he had no flea to stop his legs and apply the brakes.
Pumbaa: "I want to stop! I want to stop!
Narrator: he puffed. The man in the signal box saw that Pumbaa was in trouble, so kindly set the points. Pumbaa puffed wearily on to a nice empy siding ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
Pumbaa: "I want to stop! I want to stop! I have stopped,
Narrator: He puffed thankfully.
Workmen: "Never mind, Pumbaa
Narrator: said the Workmen as they dug him out.
Workmen: "You shall have a drink and some food and then you'll feel better".
Narrator: Presently Mufasa arrived.
Mufasa: "Well done Pumbaa, you started so quickly that you stopped a nasty accident."
Pumbaa: "I'm sorry i was cheeky,
Narrator: said Pumbaa.
Pumbaa: "You were clever to stop."
Narrator: Then Mufasa helped pull Pumbaa out from the bank. Pumbaa is still cheeky because he is that sort of warthog, but he is always careful when he goes on the land.
