  • George Carlin: Gordon always pull the big express. He was proud of being the only engine strong enough to do so. It was full of important people like Sir Topham Hatt and Gordon will see how fast he can go.
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, tricktey-trock!
  • George Carlin: Said the coaches. In a minute, Gordon will see the tunnel where Henry stood bricked up and lonely.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Why did I worried about rain spoiling my lovely coat of paint? I'd like to come out of the tunnel.
  • George Carlin: But Henry didn't know how to ask.
  • Gordon: I'm going to boop boop at Henry.
  • George Carlin: He was almost there when... Wheesh! And there was proud Gordon going slower and slower in a cloud of steam. His driver stopped the train.
  • Gordon: What has happen to me?
  • George Carlin: Asked Gordon.
  • Gordon: I feel so weak.
  • Driver: You burst your safety valves.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: You can't pull the train anymore.
  • Gordon: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Henry laughing at me.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to see Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: These big engines are always causing me trouble. Send for another engine at once.
  • George Carlin: While the conductor went to find one, they uncoupled Gordon who had enough puff to slink on the siding out of the way. Edward was the only engine left.
  • Edward: I'll come and try.
  • Gordon: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's no use. Edward can't push the train.
  • George Carlin: The kind Edward puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed but he couldn't move the heavy coaches.
  • Gordon: I told you so.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Why not let Henry try?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will. Will you help pull this train, Henry?
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry. When Henry had got up steam, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs.
  • Henry: Oh, I'm stiffed, I'm stiffed.
  • George Carlin: He groaned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Have a run to ease your joints and find a turntable.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. When Henry came back, he felt much better. Then they coupled him up.
  • Edward: Peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: So am I. Pull hard, we'll do it! Pull hard, we'll do it!
  • George Carlin: They puffed together.
  • Edward: We've done it together! We've done it together!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward and Henry.
  • Coaches: You've done it hurray! You've done it hurray!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches. Everyone was excited. Sir Topham Hatt leaned out on the window to wave at Edward and Henry. But the train was going so fast, that his hat blew off into a field where a goat ated for tea. They never stopped til they came to the station at the end of the line. The passengers all said thank you, and Sir Topham Hatt promised Henry a new coat of paint. One their way home, Edward and Henry helped Gordon back to the shed. All three engines are now great friend. Henry doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his paint nicely not to run into tunnels, but to ask his driver to rub him down when the day's work was over.
  • (A nameplate sequence happens and we begin Thomas and The Conductor)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine is very proud of his branch line. He thinks it's the most important part of the whole railway. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel agree with him. Annie could only take passengers but Clarabel can take passengers, luggage and the conductor. They were both old and need new paint but Thomas loves them very much. As they run backwards and forwards along the line, they sing songs to each other. When Thomas starts from the station he sings...
  • Thomas: Oh, come along, we're rather late. Oh, come along, we're rather late.
  • George Carlin: And the coaches sang...
  • Annie and Clarabel: We're coming along. We're coming along.
  • George Carlin: They don't mind that Thomas says to them because he know he was trying to please Sir Topham Hatt, and to know to that if Thomas is cross, he's not cross with them. One day, they have to wait for Henry's train which made Thomas very cross.
  • Thomas: How could I run my line properly if Henry is always late? He doesn't realize that Sir Topham Hatt depends on me.
  • George Carlin: Thomas whistled impatiently. He wanted to leave, but he have to wait for Henry's passengers. At last Henry came.
  • Thomas: Where have you been, lazybones?
  • Henry: Oh dear, my system is out of order. No one understands my case. You don't know what I suffer.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're too slow. You need exercise.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew his whistle and Thomas started so quickly that he left him behind. The conductor waved his red flag to stop Thomas, but Thomas was on his way steaming out of the station.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas, but Clarabel didn't want to come.
  • Clarabel: I've lost my nice conductor, I've lose my nice conductor.
  • George Carlin: She sobbed. Annie tried to tell Thomas what had happened.
  • Annie: We haven't a conductor, we haven't a conductor!
  • George Carlin: But he was hurrying and wouldn't listen. Annie and Clarabel tried to put on their brakes, but they couldn't without their conductor.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Where's our conductor? Where's our conductor?
  • George Carlin: They cried, but Thomas didn't stop till they came to a signal.
  • Thomas: Bother that signal.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • Driver: I don't know.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: The conductor will tell us in a minute.
  • George Carlin: They waited and waited but the conductor didn't come.
  • Thomas: Peep peep peep, where's the conductor?
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We've left him behind!
  • George Carlin: Sobbed Annie and Clarabel together. Everyone looked, and there he was running as fast as he could along the line, with his flag on one hand and his whistle in the other. He was very hot, so he had a drink, and told them that Thomas had left him behind.
  • Thomas: I'm very sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Conductor: We all made mistakes.
  • George Carlin: Replied the conductor.
  • Conductor: Look, the signal's down. We can go. Let's make up for lost time.
  • George Carlin: Annie and Clarabel were so pleased to have their conductor again, but they sang...
  • Annie and Clarabel: As fast as you like, as fast as you like!
  • George Carlin: ...to Thomas all the way. They reached the end of the line quicker than ever before.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Edward, Trevor and The Really Useful Party)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine was old-fashioned but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Edward the Blue Engine. Early one morning, Trevor was chuffing about the Vicarage Orchard. He had important news for Edward.
  • Trevor: The Vicar says that not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for his seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction.
  • George Carlin: Chattered Trevor.
  • Trevor: Giving rides to all the visitors. The Vicar is putting up posters all about it.
  • Edward: I'd like to help too.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Edward.
  • Edward: But without my rails, I wouldn't be much good at the garden party.
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful day but Edward was worried.
  • Edward: I wish there was something I can do for a party.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: I'd like to be helpful like Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Edward's driver laughed.
  • Driver: You're helpful in your own way, and that's on the railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, it was Trevor's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news.
  • Trevor: The Vicar's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party.
  • George Carlin: But Edward had an idea.
  • Edward: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: Everything is going to be all right.
  • George Carlin: Then he explained to his driver.
  • Edward: The Vicar can paste his posters on my cab and coaches, so wherever I go, they'll go too.
  • Driver: Well done, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: I'm sure Sir Topham Hatt would agree.
  • George Carlin: As indeed he did. Edward steamed happily to the stations collecting his passengers.
  • Passengers: Look!
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: The Vicar is holding a party. We must go do that.
  • George Carlin: Later Trevor was resting in the orchard shed when Bertie rolled by.
  • Bertie: Hello, Trevor. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?
  • Trevor: I'm not dozing, I'm resting.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor. Then he told Bertie about the Vicar's party.
  • Bertie: I'll be there too.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Bertie.
  • Bertie: I'm not sure people would wanna ride on an old traction engine after traveling in the smart red bus like me.
  • George Carlin: The party day arrived. It had rained heavenly during the night and the orchard grove was soaked.
  • Trevor: Rain and mud won't spoil my day.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor.
  • Driver: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed his driver.
  • Driver: We'll stay on the road then we won't get bogged down.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was soon busy trending up and down the quiet country lane, carrying lots of laughing children. He was just turning the corner when he heard Bertie.
  • Bertie: Hello, old timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. People have come from all other the island.
  • George Carlin: Trevor gave Bertie a cheerful whistle, and turned backed toward the orchard. Then there was trouble.
  • Bertie: Help, I'm stuck!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bertie. His wheels had sunk deep in the orchard mud. Terence the Tractor arrived just in time.
  • Terence: I'm the one who has to plough fields.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Terence.
  • Terence: We better get you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Using strong ropes, Terence and Trevor pulled Bertie cleared the mud.
  • Trevor: This will teach Bertie a thing or two.
  • George Carlin: Trevor chuffered to himself. At last, Bertie was on the road again.
  • Bertie: Thank you, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: He laughed.
  • Bertie: You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all.
  • Trevor: No.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Trevor.
  • Trevor: But you were. Just for a little while.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the Vicar arrived to see Edward and his driver.
  • Vicar: Thanks to your good idea about the posters. 100s of people payed to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children.
  • George Carlin: Edward was very pleased and Trevor fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Old Iron)
  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigment.
  • Percy: Old iron! Slow!
  • Thomas: Why! Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Better Late Than Never)
  • George Carlin: The engines were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Sir Topham Hatt did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The engines have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Thomas would be ready to collect his passengers. Thomas grew crosser and crosser.
  • Thomas: Time's time.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Thomas: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Henry and James dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Henry: Don't blame me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Henry.
  • Henry: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Thomas: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Thomas. He hurried away before Henry could answer. Bertie was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Thomas. His passengers found that, instead of going stright from the bus till their train, they were kept waiting till Thomas arrived. Soon Bertie grew cross with Thomas.
  • Bertie: Late again!
  • George Carlin: He remarked as Thomas panted wearly in.
  • Bertie: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Thomas. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • George Carlin: Thomas let off steam loudly.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: He hissed fiercly.
  • Thomas: It's those main line engines. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Sir Topham Hatt's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: One day, James was later than ever at the junction.
  • James: I'm sorry, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • James: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Thomas: It's lucky for you I'm a guaratee connection.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Thomas. Before James could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the coaches. Annie and Clarabel did their best but Thomas still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Thomas saw Bertie ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Bertie: I feel dreadful.
  • George Carlin: Moaned Bertie.
  • Bertie: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home overwise.
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Thomas. He now felt sorry for Bertie, and promised to get help at the next station. Thomas set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Bertie's passengers, travelling in Annie and Clarabel all reached home safely. When Bertie was better he came to thank Thomas.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Thomas: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • George Carlin: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.
  • (Bertie's horn honks)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin The Trouble With Mud)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Thomas was being cleaned when Gordon arrived. Mud had blown all over his smart blue paint.
  • Thomas: Hello, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Thomas: You look as you had a mud bath. Be a sensible engine and have a shower instead.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy tank engines do.
  • George Carlin: The wind blew stronger.
  • Driver: Gordon, slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. This made Gordon crosser still.
  • Gordon: Now I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. At the next station was a sign: All Trains Must Wash Down Daily. James had just finished being cleaned.
  • Driver: Come on, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: You feel better too after a good hosedown.
  • Gordon: Bah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon and angrily let off steam.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon's driver.
  • Driver: Now James will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later.
  • Gordon: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'm far too busy to waste time with water.
  • George Carlin: He finished his journey safely and steamed into the big station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting. So are Gordon's coaches and the passengers.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Goodness gracious!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can't pull the train, Henry will have to do it. Gordon you better get cleaned straight away.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was soon being washed.
  • Gordon: Mind my eyes!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled. Then he pulled cars for the rest of the day.
  • Gordon: Freight trains, freight trains!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered. He felt his position deeply.
  • Gordon: That's for you, and you, and you!
  • James: Cars will be cars.
  • George Carlin: Laughed James.
  • Gordon: They won't with me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'll teach them.
  • George Carlin: James got ready to take the express when Gordon returned.
  • Gordon: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Gordon.
  • Gordon: The hills are slippery. You may need help.
  • James: I don't need help on hills.
  • George Carlin: Replied James huffily.
  • James: Gordon thinks he knows everything.
  • George Carlin: Earlier the storm had slipped Gordon's Hill blowing leaves on the tracks which made them slippery. Even know the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. James knew this. The signal shown cleared, and James began to go faster.
  • James: I'll do it, I'll do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. Halfway up, he was not so sure.
  • James: I must do it, I must do it.
  • George Carlin: But his wheels slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the train at all.
  • James: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. His wheels were turning forward, but the heavy coaches pulled him backwards. The haul train started slipping down the hill. His driver shut off steam and put on the brakes, then carefully he stopped the train. Gordon saw everything.
  • Gordon: Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little James. I'm going to push behind.
  • George Carlin: Clouds of smoke and steam billowed from the snorting engines as they struggled up the hill.
  • James: We can do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James.
  • Gordon: We will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon. At last they reached the top.
  • James: Peep peep! Thank you, goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James.
  • Gordon: Boop boop!
  • George Carlin: Answered Gordon.
  • Gordon: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see the engines. Gordon was miserable.
  • Thomas: Please, sir?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can Gordon pull coaches again now?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you understand that having a washdown as a sensle to every engine, then yes, Gordon, you may.
  • Gordon: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Dirty or clean, I'm a famous machine!
  • George Carlin: But no one heard but him.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Thomas Comes To Breakfast)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine has worked his Branch Line for many years, and knows it very well.
  • (Thomas arrives at the station)
  • Thomas' Driver: You know just where to stop, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: You could almost manage it without you.
  • George Carlin: Thomas had become concided. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Thomas: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Percy: Don't be so daft.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Toby: I never go without my driver.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby earnestly.
  • Toby: I'd be frightened.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm not scared.
  • Toby: You never dare.
  • Thomas: I would then. You'll see.
  • George Carlin: The next day the firelighter came. Thomas drowzed comfortably as the warmth spread into his boiler. Percy and Toby were still asleep. Thomas suddenly remembered.
  • Thomas: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled.
  • Thomas: I'll show them! Driver says I can manage without him. I'll just go out and then I'll stop and "wheesh!" That'll make them jump.
  • George Carlin: Thomas thought he was being clever and really he was only moving because a careless cleaner had medal with his controls. He soon found his mistake. He tried to "wheesh!", but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare what it look what's coming next. There was the stationmaster's house! The stationmaster was about to have breakfast.
  • Thomas: Horrors!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas, and shut his eyes. The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Thomas had collected the bush on his travels. He peered into his room through his leaves. He couldn't speak. The stationmaster was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: You miserable engine!
  • George Carlin: She scolded.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I'll shall have to cook some more!
  • George Carlin: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time it fell on Thomas. Thomas felt depressed. Workmen propped out the house with strong poles and layed rails through the garden. Then, the scottish twin engines Donald and Douglas arrived.
  • (Donald and Douglas' whistles toot)
  • Donald and Douglas: Dinna fash yourself, Thomas. We'll soon have you back on the rails.
  • George Carlin: They laughed. (Donald and Douglas rescuing Thomas) Donald and Douglas puffing hard manage to haul Thomas back to safety. Bits of fencing, the bush, and a broken window frame festooned was front, which was badly twisted. The twins laughed and left him. (Donald and Douglas' whistles toot) Thomas was indisgraced. There was worst to come.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're in a lot of trouble, Thomas.
  • Thomas: I know, Sir. I'm sorry, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Thomas' voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the works and have your worn parts mended. It will be a long job.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, a Diesel Rail-car will do your work.
  • Thomas: A d-d-d-diesel, sir?
  • George Carlin: Thomas spluttered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, Thomas. Diesels always stay in their sheds till they are wanted. Diesels never gallanting off to breakfast in Stationmasters' houses.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Time For Trouble)
  • George Carlin: The Island of Sodor has many visitors, and Sir Topham Hatt had scheduled more trains. Gordon the Big Engine had to work harder than ever before.
  • Gordon: Come on.
  • George Carlin: He called to the coaches.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on, come on. The passengers rely on me to be on time.
  • George Carlin: Whenever Gordon finished one journey it was time for another to begin.
  • (The conductor blows his whistle)
  • Gordon: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Gordon: I like a long run to stretch my wheels.
  • George Carlin: Even so, Sir Topham Hatt decided that Gordon needed a rest.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James shall do your work.
  • George Carlin: He said kindly. James was delighted. He like to show off his smart red paint and was determined to be as fast as Gordon.
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • James: You know, little Toby.
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • James: I'm an important engine. Everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time, that's me.
  • Toby: Sez you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby. Just then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your parts are worn, Toby, so you must go to the works to be mended.
  • Toby: Can I take Henrietta, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No. What would the passengers do without her?
  • George Carlin: Toby saw Percy by the water tower.
  • Percy: Don't worry, Toby. I'll take care of Henrietta until you get back.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • George Carlin: Soon Toby was out on the main line. He clanked as he trundled along. He's a little engine with small wheels. His tanks will not hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal.
  • Toby: Good.
  • George Carlin: He tought.
  • Toby: There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until James has passed.
  • George Carlin: Toby was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Toby before. Toby's driver tried to explain but the new signalman wouldn't listen.
  • Signalman: We must clear the line for James with the express. You'll had to get more water at the next station.
  • George Carlin: Hurrying used a lot of water and his tanks were soon empty. Poor Toby was out of steam and stranded on the main line.
  • Toby's Fireman: We must warn James.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman. Then he saw Percy and Henrietta.
  • Toby's Fireman: Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta hated leaving Toby.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: You're taking the fireman to warn James. That's a big help.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta felt much better. James was fuming when he heard the news.
  • James: I'm going to be late.
  • Signalman: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: I didn't understand about Toby.
  • James' Driver: Now James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • James' Driver: You had to push Toby.
  • James: What, me?!
  • George Carlin: Snorted James.
  • James: Me?! Push Toby and pull my train too?!
  • George Carlin: Grumbling dreadfully, James set off to find Toby. He came up behind Toby and gave him a bump.
  • James: Get on you!
  • George Carlin: James had to work very hard. When he reached the works station he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform.
  • Boy: Koo. The express is late and it's got two engines. I think James couldn't pull it on his own so Toby had to help him.
  • Toby: Never mind, James.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Toby.
  • Toby: They're only joking.
  • James: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Said James. Toby just smiled.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Tender Engines)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Gordon was in the yard taking on a large supply of coal.
  • James: That's the third load of coal you had today, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Some might say you're being rather greedy.
  • Gordon: I'm an important engine.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon.
  • Gordon: Important engines need plenty of coal, but I doubted if you would understand that, James.
  • George Carlin: James snorted and went about his work. Later, Gordon was taking on water from a standpipe because the water tower was under repair.
  • Duck: I wouldn't drink too much of that water if I were you, Gordon. It might give you boiler-ache.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: What's this? Educating Gordon day? First James, now you, Duck. Big engines have big needs. Little engines are just annoying.
  • Duck: Don't say I didn't warn you.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Duck. Later, Gordon steamed into the yard at the big station.
  • Gordon: That's what I need.
  • George Carlin: Explained Gordon. There emergen out of his sheds were two shiny tenders.
  • Gordon: Now If I had two tenders.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: I wouldn't need to stop so often. And I wouldn't have to listen to silly little engines.
  • Driver: Those tenders belong to a visitor.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. Diesel sidled up alongside.
  • Diesel: Everyone knows that tenders are a mark and distinction, but I'm afraid that no amount of tendres will save you in the end. We diesels are taking over, and we don't need tenders to make us important, not even one.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was most upset. He was feeling just the same next morning.
  • Gordon: I'm not happy.
  • Duck: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: It's boiler-ache.
  • Gordon: It's not boiler-ache.
  • George Carlin: Protested Gordon.
  • Gordon: It's...
  • Henry: Of course it is.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Henry.
  • Henry: That water's bad. Have a good wash-out, then you feel a different engine. Your boiler must be full of sludge.
  • Gordon: Don't be vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon. He backed on his train hissing mournfully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: I can't, sir. Is it true what diesels said, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What does his say?
  • Gordon: That diesels are taking over.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry, Gordon. That will never happen on my railway.
  • Gordon: One more thing, sir. Why did the visitor have two tenders?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Because he lives on the railway with long difference between coaling depots.
  • George Carlin: Gordon felt better. But Henry started complaining. He banged some cars angrily.
  • Henry: I always worked hard enough for two.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Henry: I deserved another tender.
  • George Carlin: Duck whispered something to Donald. He was going to play a trick on Henry.
  • Duck: Henry?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Duck: Would you like my tenders?
  • Henry: Yours?! What have you got to do with tenders?
  • Duck: All right.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: The deals off. Would you like them, Donald?
  • Donald: I wouldn't deprive you of the honor.
  • George Carlin: Replied Donald.
  • Duck: It is a great honor.
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck thoughtfully.
  • Duck: But I'm only a tank engine. Perhaps James might...
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry hastily.
  • Henry: How many tenders have you and when can I have them?
  • Duck: Uh, hmm, I have six and you can have them this evening.
  • Henry: Six lovely tenders!
  • George Carlin: Chortled Henry.
  • Henry: What a splendid sight I'll be.
  • George Carlin: Henry was excited all day.
  • Henry: Do you think it'll be all right?
  • George Carlin: He asked for umpteenth time.
  • Duck: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: They're already now.
  • George Carlin: The other engines waited where they can each get a good view. But Henry wasn't a splendid sight at all. His six tenders were very old, dirty and filled with boiler sludge.
  • Gordon: Have a good wash-out, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Called a voice.
  • Gordon: That's right. You'll feel a different engine now.
  • George Carlin: Henry was not sure, but he thought his voice belongs to Gordon's.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Bulgy)
  • George Carlin: It was a special holiday on the Island of Sodor. Bertie the Bus was working harder than ever before. All the engines were busy too. Duck was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Bertie. The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Bulgy: Stupid nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Bulgy: I wouldn't have brought them if i've known. I did have a breakdown or something.
  • Duck: I'm glad you didn't.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Duck.
  • Duck: You had spoiled their fun.
  • Bulgy: Bah! Enjoyment is all you engines lived for. One day railways will be ripped up.
  • George Carlin: Duck felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Duck: We have a friend called Bertie and he's a bus. But he likes the railway. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Bulgy: Heh!
  • George Carlin: Growled the bus.
  • Bulgy: I know Bertie. He's too small in size to be in any use.
  • George Carlin: Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: That bus is silly.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he steamed away. At the junction, Duck told Oliver all about him.
  • Oliver: I call him Bulgy.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Oliver and then he puffed happily away. But that afternoon when the two engines met again, Oliver was no longer laughing.
  • Oliver: Bulgy's friend had come.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Oliver: He's rude too. He's taking Bulgy's passengers home and leaving Bulgy free to steal ours.
  • Duck: But he can't.
  • George Carlin: Objected Duck.
  • Oliver: Bulgy says he can get them to the big station before us.
  • Duck: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: It's much farther by road.
  • Oliver: Yeah.
  • George Carlin: Continued Oliver.
  • Oliver: But Bulgy says he knows a shortcut.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Duck: Where are the passengers?
  • George Carlin: They wondered.
  • Oliver: Look!
  • George Carlin: Shrilled Oliver.
  • Oliver: Look at Bulgy. He's a mean scarlet deciever.
  • George Carlin: Bulgy was wearing a large sign saying: Railway Bus.
  • Bulgy: Yaa boo snubs.
  • George Carlin: He jeered as he roared away.
  • Duck: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duck to his coaches.
  • Duck: Let's see what he's up to.
  • George Carlin: Duck wanted to get back at Bulgy, but he wasn't sure how. Then in the distance, Duck saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Bulgy wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Duck: So this was his shortcut.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He tricked us.
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets. He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • George Carlin: Duck's crew examined the bridge.
  • Duck's Crew: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Duck: Passengers are urgent.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. Duck slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Bulgy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Bulgy: (groaning) Stop!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Bulgy: It might fall on me.
  • Duck: That would serve you right for telling lies.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck. But the bridge didn't collapse. Duck made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Bulgy and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Oliver Owns Up)
  • George Carlin: On a clear day when the sky is blue and there is just enough breeze to blow the clouds away, you can stand on a big hill above the valley and watch Duck and Oliver far below, busily at work on Duck's branch line near the sea. The two engines are very proud of their matching coats of gleaming color. Oliver often talks about the time that Douglas saved him from scrap.
  • Oliver: If it wasn't for his help...
  • George Carlin: Oliver would say.
  • Oliver: I might have caught when I ran away from the scrapyard, and I would never come to live here on Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: The other engines all wanted to know about Oliver's adventures.
  • Henry: Amazing!
  • George Carlin: Remarked Henry.
  • James: Oliver...
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: ...has resource.
  • Gordon: And sagacity.
  • George Carlin: Put in Gordon.
  • Percy: What does that mean?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Thomas: I think...
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: ...it's about being clever and wise.
  • Gordon: He is...
  • George Carlin: Finished Gordon.
  • Gordon: ...an example to us all.
  • George Carlin: I'm sorry to say that Oliver became very puffed up in the smokebox.
  • Oliver: Henry says i'm amazing. He's right.
  • George Carlin: He whistled as he swooshed along the line. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are doing well. Now you must learn how to look after freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars. The other engines warned Oliver but he took no notice.
  • Oliver: You think I can manage.
  • George Carlin: He said huffly.
  • Oliver: Gordon knows better. He's says I'm sagacious.
  • Duck: You may be good gracious or whatever you called it, but cars can be troublesome and...
  • Donald: Say no more, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Interested Donald.
  • Donald: It's a pity, but the wee engine just learned for itself.
  • George Carlin: Oliver pulled some loaded cars into a siding and pushed the empties into the chute. Then he came back to take the loaded cars away. But they were comfortable and didn't want to move.
  • Car 1: What right is he to poke his funnel in here?
  • Car 2: We want Duck!
  • Car 3: Or Donald!
  • Car 4: Or Douglas!
  • Oliver: Look sharp.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Oliver.
  • Cars: That's not the way to speak.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the cars.
  • Cars: We'll get even.
  • George Carlin: Oliver heard nothing. The cars move smoothly at first, then suddenly, Oliver found them forced forward. His driver applied the brakes, but they were useless against the surging cars.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the cars. Oliver formed hard, but still they forced them on and on. At last, the cars grew tired.
  • Oliver: I'm winning.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Oliver. But it was too late. Oliver layed bruised and benuised, bunkered down in the turntable well. Duck survaved the damaged.
  • Duck: Hello, Oliver. Are you being a good gracious engine? Beg pardon, we really don't like this sort of surprise. Donald and Douglas will miss their turntable until it was mended.
  • George Carlin: That night, Oliver was hold gently to safety.
  • Oliver: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: He said to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Oliver: I shouldn't listen to Duck's advice. I don't feel good gracious or whatever it is. I just feel silly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now you know the damage cars can do.
  • Oliver: Yes I do, sir. I look like a load of scrap iron.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oh, I don't think so.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you do need to go to the works to be mended.
  • George Carlin: The other engines now felt sorry for Oliver.
  • Duck: The branch line would be a same without you.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Duck.
  • Duck: Come back soon.
  • George Carlin: A few days later, Oliver did come back. His coat paint glistended in the sun. He's a wiser engine too and never made the same about cars again.
