Narrator: "Big Macintosh always took the express buffaloes. He was proud of being the only animal strong enough to do so. It was full of important people, like Hoity Toity, and Big Mac was seeing how fast he could go."

Big Macintosh: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He said."

Buffaloes: "Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, trickety-trock."

Narrator: "Said the buffaloes. In a minute, Big Mac would see the tunnel where Filthy Rich stood bricked up and lonely."

Filthy Rich: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Thought Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Why did I worry about rain spoiling my lovely fur? I'd like to come out of the tunnel."

Narrator: "But Filthy Rich didn't know how to ask."

Big Macintosh: "I'm going to whistle at Filthy Rich."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac. He was almost there when - Wheeeeeeesh! - and there was proud Big Mac going slower and slower in a cloud of dust. His driver stopped him."

Big Macintosh: "What has happened to me?"

Narrator: "Asked Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "I feel so weak."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "You've pull a muscle."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "You can't take the buffaloes anymore."

Big Macintosh: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Filthy Rich laughing at me."

Narrator: "Everyone came to see Big Mac."

Hoity Toity: "Humph!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "These big animals are always causing me trouble. Send for another animal at once."

Narrator: "While the conductor went to find one, they brought Big Mac in a siding out of the way.

Shining Armor was the only animal left."

Shining Armor: "I'll come and try."

Narrator: "He said."

Big Macintosh: "Pooh!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Mac: "That's no use. Shining Armor can't push the buffaloes."

Narrator: "Kind Shining Armor puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed, but he couldn't move the heavy buffaloes."

Big Macintosh: "I told you so."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "Why not let Filthy Rich try?"

Hoity Toity: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "I will.

Will you help take the buffaloes, Filthy Rich?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Filthy Rich: "Oh yes."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich.

When Filthy Rich had got up strength, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs."

Filthy Rich: "Ooh! I'm stiff, I'm stiff."

Narrator: "He groaned."

Hoity Toity: "Have a run to ease your hooves, and find a turntable."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity.

When Filthy Rich came back, he felt much better. Then they hooked him up."

Shining Armor: "Peep, peep."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "I'm ready."

Filthy Rich: "Peep, peep, peep."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "So am I."

Shining Armor and Filthy Rich: "Pull hard. We'll do it. Pull hard. We'll do it."

Narrator: "They puffed together."

Shining Armor and Filthy Rich: "We've done it together. We've done it together."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor and Filthy Rich."

Buffaloes: "You've done it, hurray! You've done it, hurray!"

Narrator: "Sang the buffaloes. Everyone was excited. Hoity Toity leaned out to wave at Shining Armor and Filthy Rich, but they were going so fast that his hair blew off into a field where a goat ate it for tea.

They never stopped till they came to the station at the end of the road. The passengers all said "Thank you". And Hoity Toity promised Filthy Rich a new coat.

One their way home, Shining Armor and Filthy Rich helped Big Macintosh back to the library. All three stallions are now great friends. Filthy Rich doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his fur nice is not to run into tunnels but to ask his driver to wash him when the day's work is over."
