  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Peter Sam and The Refreshment Lady)
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel had been naughty, so Sir Topham Hatt made him stay in the shed for a while. Peter Sam was now busier than ever. He had to do Sir Handel's work as well as his own. He was very excited, and the fireman found him hard to handle.
  • Sir Handel: (grunts) Anyone would think that he wanted to work.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel who was lonely and bored.
  • Skarloey: All respectable engines do.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Keep calm, Peter Sam, and you do well.
  • George Carlin: But Peter Sam was in such of state that he couldn't listen. He collected some coaches and went on his way. But somehow the faster that he wanted to go, the slower the journey became. When Peter Sam finally fussed through the station, Henry was already there.
  • Henry: This won't do, youngster.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: I can't be kept waiting. If you are late tonight, I'll go off and leave your passengers behind.
  • Peter Sam: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. Secretly, he was a little worried. But not for long. The conductor blew his whistle, and waved his green flag. Peter Sam puffed happily away, singing a little song.
  • Peter Sam: (singing) I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. What fun it all is.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he journeyed along the line. The coaches enjoyed themselves too. They were growing fun of Peter Sam. Every afternoon, they had to wait an hour at the station by the lake. The stations has a little shops of the refreshments. The conductor, fireman and the guard buy tea and cakes for the refreshment lady. At last, the waiting was over. But Peter Sam was sizzling with impatients.
  • Peter Sam: Peep peep! Hurry up, please!
  • George Carlin: He whistled to the passengers.
  • Peter Sam: How awful.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Peter Sam: If we missed Henry's train.
  • George Carlin: The conductor was ready with his flag and whistle. The refreshment lady was making a way to the train. Then it happened. The conductor says that Peter Sam was too impatient. Peter Sam says he was sure he heard a whistle, anyway he started.
  • Coaches: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Wailed the coaches.
  • Coaches: You left the refreshment lady behind!
  • Peter Sam: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Groaned Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: We're sure to miss Henry now.
  • George Carlin: The refreshment lady climbed aboard and they started again. Peter Sam didn't sing anymore. Instead he hurried along the line as fast as he wheels and his driver would let him. They arrived at the station just in time.
  • Peter Sam: Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. He felt very relief.
  • Henry: Not bad, youngster.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry loftly. But the refreshment lady was still cross.
  • Refreshment Lady: What do you mean by leaving me behind?
  • Peter Sam: I'm sorry, refreshment lady.
  • George Carlin: Replied Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: But Henry says he might leave without us.
  • George Carlin: Then the refreshment lady laughed.
  • Refreshment Lady: You silly engine! Henry was teasing you. He wouldn't ever go without his passengers. He's a guaranteed connection.
  • (Conductor's whistle blows)
  • Peter Sam: Well!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: Where's that Henry?
  • George Carlin: But Henry had chortled away.
  • (Henry's whistle toots)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Toby)
  • Children: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old train, a little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she's seen better days. His mind keeps returning to the good old days. When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby. What will become of you? The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's still lots that you can do. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. All of the children came to say goodbye. They clapped and cheered as Toby rang his bell, "Bye-bye." Everyone was sad to see them go. Whatever will they do, and where will they go? Suddenly news came to brighten up their day. How Toby and Henrietta were needed right away. The Fat Controller had written to say, could they please come and help right away. Now they're part of his family forever. Toby, oh Toby. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.

  • Children: (singing) Thomas first saw Terence the Tractor plowing in a field one day and he said, "My oh my, you do look funny. Where are your wheels, are your wheels, are your wheels? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Terence the Tractor "I don't have wheels like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Thomas got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Terence the Tractor Now Thomas understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover. Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be. Don't judge a book by its cover Just remember the rule Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book.... By its cover!
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bulldog)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Percy was impatience. He was wearing a new coat of paint and long for everyone to see it. The other engines were still dozing, but not Percy.
  • Percy: Driver should be here by now. What's he doing?
  • Gordon: Sleeping.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: But that means I'll be late. The coaches will be waiting and the passengers will get cross.
  • Henry: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • James: It's still early.
  • George Carlin: Added James.
  • James: You just wanna showoff.
  • Percy: No I don't.
  • Thomas: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: It'll soon be time for work, but be careful, or you might run into danger and Duke is not here to save you.
  • Toby: D-D-Duke?
  • George Carlin: Stuttered Toby.
  • Toby: You mean our hero?
  • George Carlin: A large painting of Duke hung on the engine shed.
  • Thomas: The very same.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Driver told me the story. Listen.
  • George Carlin: And this is the story Thomas told them. Long ago, when Peter Sam was still called Stuart and Sir Handel Falcon, they worked with Duke on his own railway, but Falcon still had a lot to learn. The manager came to see him.
  • Manager: Falcon, I'm pleased with your work so far. Now you must learn the difficult part of the line. We call it "The Mountain Road".
  • George Carlin: Falcon was excited.
  • Falcon: Yes please, sir.
  • Manager: So tomorrow, when you have a new coat of paint, you will go on it. Duke will explain everything.
  • Falcon: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Thought Falcon.
  • Falcon: Duke's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Next day came.
  • Duke: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Warned Duke.
  • Duke: The mountain road is difficult. I'll lead.
  • Falcon: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: I'll lead. How can I learn the road with you lumbering ahead and blocking the view?
  • Duke: Suit yourself.
  • George Carlin: Said Duke.
  • Duke: But never mind the view. Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: The engines set off.
  • Duke: Look at the track.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke.
  • Duke: Never mind the view.
  • Falcon: Fusspot, fusspot.
  • George Carlin: Replied Falcon.
  • Falcon: Fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy, fuddy-duddy.
  • George Carlin: The engines' speed grew slower and slower.
  • Falcon: Don't dawdle, don't dawdle!
  • George Carlin: Urged Falcon.
  • Duke: No hurry, no hurry.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duke. Soon they approach the tunnel. Falcon didn't like the tunnel. It was curved and he couldn't see.
  • Falcon: I wanna get out! I wanna get out!
  • George Carlin: He sighed. One moment, everything seemed safe. But then suddenly... Falcon was derailed and hung dangerously over the edge. Duke bravely held on with all of his strength.
  • Falcon: Stop shaking!
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Falcon: I can't hold you if you shake!
  • George Carlin: Duke's driver and fireman work quickly to make the two engines safe again. Then came more trouble.
  • Fireman: Water!
  • George Carlin: Cried Duke's fireman.
  • Fireman: Duke needs water quickly!
  • George Carlin: Luckily there was the workers' cottage nearby. Soon everyone was passing jugs, buckets, kettles and saucepans filled with water until Duke's first was quinched. All the while, Duke was building more strength. At last, when everyone's help, he was able to pull Falcon back on to the rails. Then they started off once more. The manager was waiting at the top station. He apologized with the accident.
  • Passengers: Your Duke...
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: Is a hero! He stirm firmed like a bulldog and wouldn't let go.
  • George Carlin: Falcon was greatful too.
  • Falcon: Thank you for saving me, Duke. I didn't know you bothered after I've been so rude.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duke.
  • Duke: You just had a new coat of paint. It wouldn't been a pity if you rolled down the mountain and spoiled it.
