  • George Carlin: One winter's night when the cold wind blew, the engines found it hard to sleep.
  • Toby: What we need.
  • George Carlin: Suggested Toby.
  • Toby: Is to listen to a story.
  • Percy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Percy.
  • Percy: A mysterious story.
  • Duck: But.
  • George Carlin: Added Duck.
  • Duck: It must have a happy ending.
  • Thomas: Driver told me a story.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas, so everyone listened.
  • Thomas: Once upon a time...
  • George Carlin: Began Thomas.
  • Thomas: They were three little engines who lived their own little shed on their own little railway. Their names were Duke, Stuart and Falcon. Duke was the oldest. It was name after his grace, the Duke of Sodor. He was proud of this and love to keep the little ones in order. Whenever they had anything that Duke thought wrong, he would say...
  • Duke: That would never suit his Grace.
  • Thomas: Other engines came and went but Duke outlast them at all. Stuart and Falcon used to call him "Granpuff". They were fun of him, but they got very tired and hearing all about his Grace. Sometimes they were teasing and chant...
  • Stuart and Falcon: Engines come and engines go, Granpuff goes on forever!
  • Duke: You impurtanded scallywags!
  • Thomas: Duke would say.
  • Duke: Whatever are you engines coming to?
  • Falcon: Never mind, Granpuff. We're only young ones.
  • Duke: Well you better mind, unless you wanna end up like Smudger.
  • Stuart: Ooh! Granpuff, whatever happened?
  • Duke: Smudger.
  • Thomas: Said Duke.
  • Duke: Was a showoff. He rode roughly often came off the rails. I warned him to be careful, but he took no notice.
  • Smudger: Listen, Dukie.
  • Thomas: He snarled.
  • Smudger: Who worries about their few spills?
  • Duke: We do here, I said, but Smudger just laughed.
  • Smudger: (laughs)
  • Duke: Until one day, manager said he was gonna make himself useful at last. Smudger stopped laughing then.
  • Stuart: Why? What did he do?
  • Duke: He turned him into a generator. He still out there behind our shed. He'll never move again.
  • Thomas: After that, Stuart and Falcon became really useful engines and all three were happy together for many years. Then hard times came. The mines and the hills closed and the railway was closed too. People came to buy the engines.
  • People: We'll take Stuart and Falcon.
  • Thomas: No one wanted Duke. They thought him too old.
  • Stuart: Cheer up, Granpuff.
  • Thomas: Called Stuart.
  • Stuart: We'll find you a nice railway and then you can come and keep us in order.
  • Thomas: They tried to be brave and cheerful, but no one really thought their dreams would come true. Duke's driver and fireman oiled and greased him one last time. They sheeted and snuggly and said goodbye, then they had to go away and find work. Duke was alone.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • Thomas: He sighed.
  • Duke: I'll go to sleep. It'll help me pass the time.
  • Thomas: Winter torrents washed soil from the hills. Trees and bushes grew all around. You wouldn't know the shed was there, let alone the little engine sleep inside.
  • Percy: That's not a happy ending!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: There will be one, but that'll have to wait until next time.

Sleeping Beauty

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful night on the Island of Sodor. The day's work was done and the engines puffed safely home.
  • Percy: Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: Will you tell us the end of the story?
  • Thomas: You mean the one about Duke the lost engine?
  • Henry: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • James: But please remind us of a story so far.
  • George Carlin: So Thomas began and here's the rest of the story he told.
  • Thomas: Duke was old and live with two young engines called Stuart and Falcon. They teased Duke and called him "Granpuff", but they were happy together. Then their line was closed down and the young engines went away. Duke was left alone in the shed. He went to sleep and everything around him changed. But Duke was never forgotten. Years went by until one day not long ago, visitors came to see Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Visitors: We want to find Duke.
  • Thomas: They said.
  • Visitors: And make him happy again.
  • Thomas: Maps lay everything.
  • Visitor: If we followed the old line shown here on the map.
  • Thomas: They said.
  • Visitor: We'll travel north to the village and then to the mountains. And look. There's the sign for the old station. If Duke's anywhere, he's there.
  • Thomas: Everyone set off to the mountains far away. The days went by, the search grew harder, but the rescuers wouldn't give up.
  • Rescuers: Let's go this way.
  • Thomas: They said. But there was still no sign of Duke.
  • Rescuers: He's here somewhere.
  • Thomas: They said. They scrambled over hills, struggled over ditches. At last their search ended, quite by accident.
  • (Crash!)
  • Rescuers: We found him! We found our sleeping beauty!
  • Duke: Excuse me?
  • Thomas: Enquired Duke.
  • Duke: Are you a vandal? Driver told me vandals break and smash things.
  • Rescuers: Bless you no.
  • Thomas: Laughed the rescuers.
  • Rescuers: We dropped in because we couldn't find your door. Falcon and Stuart will be pleased to see you.
  • Duke: So they did remember!
  • Thomas: Sighed Duke happily. Then they all set off for Duke's new home. Stuart and Falcon are ready for a big welcome.
  • Stuart and Falcon: He's here!
  • Thomas: They whispered.
  • Stuart and Falcon: Sh! Sh!
  • Duke: You woke me up.
  • Thomas: Grumbled Duke.
  • Duke: In my young days, engines were...
  • Stuart: Seem in not heard, Granpuff, we know.
  • Falcon: We're all be back to work tomorrow. We're glad you come back. We can keep you in order now.
  • Duke: Keep me in order? Be off with you! Impuritie scallywags!
  • Thomas: But Duke's old eyes twinkled, and for the first time in years, he smiled as he dozed in the sun. And that...
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: the whole story. Did you like it?
  • Percy: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed the engines.
  • James: Especially the happy ending.
  • George Carlin: And soon, they were all asleep too.
