Part One

Narrator: A new engine was racing across the Island of Sodor. She was very excited, and didn't want to be late. She arrived at Knapford Station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for her.

Sir Topham Hatt: This is Danni. She was built by the Caledonian Railway in 1886.

Donald: Och, Douggie! It's one of our own!

Douglas: How are ye doing? We're Donald and Douglas.

Danni: It's nice to see you two again.

Percy: I'm Percy.

Thomas: And I'm Thomas. Welcome to the Island of Sodor, Danni.

Danni: Nice to meet you, boys.

Narrator: Just then, Gordon pulled in with the express.

Thomas: Hello, Gordon. This is Danni.

Gordon: Nice to m- {stops mid-sentence in shock}

Danni: Hello, Gordon. I'm Danni.

{Gordon looks at Danni in shock, then smiles and hearts are in his eyes.}

Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon? GORDON!!! {Gordon looks at Sir Topham Hatt} I am talking to you!

Gordon: Er, y-y-yes, sir!

Sir Topham Hatt: Anyway, Gordon, this is Danni. She will help on the mainline, and sometimes the branchlines, not going out on a date.

Gordon: Yes, sir. Sorry, sir.

Narrator: Gordon shown Danni the whole Island - Tidmouth Sheds, the shunting yards, Brendam Docks, and the wharf, close to the Skarloey Railway, where the little engines live. Later that night, Gordon took Danni to Tidmouth Sheds, and Danni told the other engines about her life.

Danni: ...I entered LMS service 1923 and the LMS renumbered me 14010 and gave me the power classification 1P. I was soon withdrawn in 1935 and set me aside for preservation. I was a static exhibit in the Glasgow Museum of Transport, until your Sir Topham Hatt came and bought me.

Emily: That's a really amazing life story. I'm from a dying breed.

Danni: Great Northern Railway Stirling Single, built in 1870, I trust.

Narrator: That night, the engines were talking about Danni.

Thomas: She seems nice.

Edward: And very good manners, too.

James: She's hot, too!

Percy: James, remember the last time you tried to woo a girl?

James: Ummm...

{Cut to a flashback: James is trying to woo Molly at the yards.}

Molly: James, please. I told you before, I don't want to be your girlfriend!

James: {smirking} Sure you do! Look at my red paint, you and I would be a glorious sight together.

Molly: {disgusted} Ugggh! I'd never want to be with someone as conceited as you! All you care about is yourself! Not to mention you’ve asked this same question to the other girls!

James: Molly, you're gorgeous. Be my girlfriend!

Molly: No.

Thomas: Excuse me!

James: {glaring} Shouldn't you be on your way, slow coach?

Thomas: Look, James. Molly won't be your girlfriend. She's already mine. You're the slow coach. You should have been at Wellsworth ten minutes ago!

James: See you, hotness!

Molly: {growls at James as he leaves} I cannot stand him! He's rude and conceited.

Thomas: Don't mind him. That's how James is. Looks like this is a game to him.

Molly: {smiles} Thank you, Thomas.

{Thomas throws up. End flashback.}

James: No-oo...

Percy: Typical.

Narrator: Next morning, Danni was shunting Gordon's express coaches. The coaches were impressed by the way she shunted them. Most boy engines were rough with coaches, especially James and Diesel, who often banged them rudely.

NWR Coaches: Women always lead! Women always lead!

Narrator: Soon, Gordon arrived a couple minutes later.

Danni: Here you are, Gordon.

Gordon: Thank you very much, Danni.

Narrator: The guard blew his whistle, and Gordon set off. James was watching both in jealousy.

James: Why is it that blue engines get the girl instead of me?

Duck: Maybe it's because they like smart, nice guys and not stuck-up fools.

James: Aw, shut up, Duck!

Narrator: Soon, Gordon stopped at Wellsworth to let Spencer pass. He thought it would be best to stop for water while he was waiting. What he didn't know was that James had filled the water tower with sludge.

{Gordon backs back down to his express. Spencer passes by.}

Narrator: Soon, Gordon's signal was green, and he was on his way. He arrived at a big hill, then he began to feel sick.

Gordon: {groans} Ooohhh... I feel sick...

Narrator: Gordon's crew stopped the train to a complete stop, damped down his fire, and checked him all over. They found nothing until...

Gordon's driver: There's your answer, Gordon: the water tower was filled with sludge!

Gordon: The indignity!

Narrator: Soon, Danni and James arrived to help.

Danni: Oh no! What happened, Gordon?

Gordon: I got sludge in my water tanks.

Narrator: James knew he had to admit it.

James: I confess... I filled the water tower with sludge.

Gordon: {furious} YOU WHAT?!!?

James: I was jealous of you liking Danni.

Danni: You were? I might've known James was a stuck-up jerk.

Narrator: Soon, Danni took Gordon to the works, while James took the express. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.

Sir Topham Hatt: James, why did you fill that water tower with sludge?

James: {hesitantly} I wanted Danni to like me, and wanted to prove I was a hero to her, but I was wrong.

Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you for owning up, James. That water tower will be out of order until the sludge is cleared. And your punishment will be shunting in the yards for three weeks.

James: {miserably} Yes, sir...

Narrator: Gordon had to spend at least a month at the works. It took a long time to clear the sludge. One evening, Danni came to see Gordon.

Danni: Hello, Gordon.

Gordon: Hey, Danni.... {sighs}

Danni: Gordon, I know that you're sad.

Gordon: Danni, I have something to tell you.

Narrator: He paused to think about what he was going to say.

Gordon: Ever since you came to Sodor, I thought you were a sweet and beautiful engine. You were so delicate and lovely. I just wanted to say... I always had feelings for you, even if you reject those feelings or not.

Narrator: Danni had never heard such honesty from Gordon before.

Danni: Gordon, I've never such honesty from you. I can tell you are pouring out your feelings for me and I think that is beautiful. You're more sweeter and handsomer than James.

Narrator: Gordon and Danni's lips connected one another's. Molly, Toby, Henry, James and Thomas looked on in surprise with eyes wide open.

Toby: Look away, young ones!

Henry: Gordon's such a lucky guy!

Molly: Love like on the old LNER!

James: That's so hot! {other engines look at him} What?! Am I not allowed to say something crude once in a while?

{The kiss stops.}

Danni: Gordon, I love you.

Narrator: Gordon was so surprised he somehow wheeshed steam, filling the works with ash and steam.

Gordon: I love you, too, Danni!!!

Danni: {giggles} I never knew I had such a dramatic effect on other engines.

James: {cheekily} You caused a major effect on me, too.

Thomas, Henry, Toby and Molly: Shut up, James!!!

James: {sighs} All right, I’ll be quiet now... {mutters}
