Something In The Air

  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Thomas was at the quayside of a small village. Fish were being loaded into his cars. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Alec Baldwin: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, they saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • (Thomas heads for the damaged track)
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Alec Baldwin: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, I'll tell them to close the line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was waiting for Thomas' cars.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: It's the fish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Pah! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my cars hitched to my train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. He was steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What route is Henry taking tonight?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But I told you!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. And when he could, it was too late.
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Alec Baldwin: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them. You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Alec Baldwin: But there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Henry happily.

Cranky Bugs

  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy enjoyed working at the docks. They like to see air and the sound of the gulls. But one day, the friends were feeling hot and bothered. A crane was causing trouble. His name was Cranky and this was his first day at the docks.
  • Cranky: You're useless little bugs!
  • Alec Baldwin: He called from above.
  • Cranky: If you put these freight cars on the inside lines then I wouldn't have so far to travel.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: No crane has ever complained before.
  • Cranky: Well I'm complaining now.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Cranky banged his load down on the keyside. Later, the two engines met Gordon and James and told them about Cranky.
  • Gordon: Cranes are nearly fairy things they need a lot of attention like me in fact.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • James: You should see the situation from Cranky's point of view.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • James: He's high up in the air coping with wind, rain and making sun. Then he looks down and sees you two little engines being annoying. No wonder he calls you bugs.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Cranky heard that the big engines agreed with him, he grew bossier still.
  • Cranky: Come on, come on. Push those freight cars closer to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Percy was too upset to concentrate and pushed the freight cars too far. Poor Percy. Then, Cranky played a trick on Thomas.
  • Cranky: Push your freight cars onto the outside line. It's easier for me to load up.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Thomas did. But Cranky left the load beside the freight cars, not in them.
  • Cranky: You must have known my arm can't reach you there.
  • Alec Baldwin: Complained Cranky. This mix up caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt was most upset.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy, this new crane has an important job to do. I have heard that you not been helping him today. You will go to your sheds and consider how you improve yourselves tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Now Thomas and Percy were upset too. That evening, a big storm raged across the island. Cranky and the engines were trapped in the docks.
  • Duck: We're sure to be safe in the sheds.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck. But he was wrong. The engines had no idea they were about to be put in great danger by an old tramp steamer. It was running out of control and into a ground straight into the sheds.
  • (The old tramp steamer crashes into the shed)
  • Cranky: (screams)
  • (Cranky lands onto the ground with a loud Kuh-Thud)
  • Henry, James, Duck and Gordon: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called the engines from inside the shed.
  • Cranky: I can't!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Cranky. When the storm was over, Sir Topham Hatt rushed into the scene of the destruction.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy will help you.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called to Cranky.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And then you can help the engines.
  • Cranky: Oh, please, hurry!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Cranky.
  • Cranky: And tell them I'm sorry I was rude to them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So it was you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I know those engines an apology.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy soon came to the rescue. And it wasn't too long before Cranky was upright again and clearing the wreckage. At last, all the engines were free.
  • Gordon: Oh, thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: What would I've done without you?
  • Cranky: Well I had to be rescued before I help you. But i never I would be by a couple of, bu-bu...
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky was about to say bugs but he quickly corrected himself.
  • Cranky: Uh, small engines thank you. I'll never be rude again. However you two mites are in my way so move over.
  • Percy: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: He's back to bugging us.
  • Thomas: Don't move! You're still attatched to Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late.
  • (Cranky lands on the rails once again)
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky still looks down at the two little engines. But ever since that stormy night, he never calls them bugs or mights, because he knows they might bite back.

  • George Carlin: Mavis is a diesel engine who works at the quarry company shunting freight cars in their sidings. She has six small wheels hidden by sideplates just like Toby's. Mavis is young and full of her own ideas. She loves rearranging things too and began putting Toby's cars in different places every day. This made Toby cross.
  • Toby: Freight cars...
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Toby: ...should be where you want them when you want them.
  • Mavis: Fiddlesticks!
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis and flounced away. At last, Toby lost patience.
  • Toby: I can't waste time playing "Hunt The Cars" with you. Take them yourself.
  • George Carlin: Mavis was pleased. Taking cars made her feel important. At the station, Diesel oiled up to her.
  • Mavis: Toby's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: She complained. Diesel sense trouble and was delighted.
  • Mavis: Toby says only steam engines can manage freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Continued Mavis.
  • Diesel: How observe.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Diesel.
  • Diesel: Depend upon it, Mavis. Anything steam engines can do, we diesels can do better.
  • George Carlin: Diesel knew nothing about cars, but Mavis didn't realize this. Toby's line crosses the main road behind the station, and for a short way follows a farm lane. Frosty weather makes the mud rock-hard and very slippery. Toby stops before reaching the lane. His fireman halts the traffic at the level crossing and then he sets off again. By using the heavy cars to push him along, he has no trouble with the frosty rails and the lane and across the road. It is the only thing safe thing to do in this kind of weather. Toby warned Mavis and told her just what to do.
  • Mavis: I can manage, thank you.
  • George Carlin: She replied.
  • Mavis: I'm not an old fusspot like you.
  • George Carlin: The freight cars were tired of being pushed around by Mavis.
  • Freight Cars: It's slippery.
  • George Carlin: They whispered.
  • Freight Cars: Let's push her around instead. On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Mavis took no notice. Instead, she brought the cars carefully down the lane and stopped at the level crossing. All traffic halted.
  • Mavis: One of the headlamp for fusspot Toby.
  • George Carlin: Chortled Mavis. But Mavis had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Toby's advice, she had given the cars the chance they wanted.
  • Freight Cars: Hold back! Hold back!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Mavis: Grrrr up!
  • George Carlin: Ordered Mavis. The cars just laughed and her wheels spun helplessly. Workmen sanded the rails and dig away the frozen mud, but it was no good. Everyone was impatient.
  • Mavis: Grrrr agh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Mavis. Toby was in the yard when he heard the news.
  • Toby: I warned her.
  • George Carlin: He fumed.
  • Toby's Driver: She's young yet.
  • George Carlin: Soothed his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: And...
  • Toby: She can manage her cars herself.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: They're your cars really.
  • George Carlin: His driver replied.
  • Toby's Driver: Mavis is suppose to stay at the quarry if Sir Topham Hatt finds out.
  • Toby: Mmmm, yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby thoughtfully. He and his driver agreed that'll be best to help Mavis after all. An angry farmer was telling Mavis just what she could do with her train.
  • Toby: Having trouble, Mavis?
  • George Carlin: Chortled Toby.
  • Toby: I am surprised.
  • Mavis: Grrrr osh!
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis.
  • (Toby starts to couple up to Mavis)
  • George Carlin: With much puffing and wheels slipped, Toby pushed Mavis and the freight cars back. The hard work made his fire burn fiercely, and his fireman spread hot cinders to melt the frozen mud.
  • (Toby pushes Mavis and the cars all the way to the top)
  • George Carlin: At last they finished.
  • Toby: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Called Toby.
  • Toby: You'll managed now, I expect.
  • George Carlin: Mavis didn't answer. She took the cars to the sheds, and scuttled home to the quarry as quickly as she could.

Thomas and The Rumours

  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas the Tank Engine loves his branch line. One day, when he stopped at a small station, some children looked sad.
  • Girl: They closed our playground and our favorite sand pit.
  • Boy: Teacher said the sand is soil and too dirty play in.
  • Children: Please help us Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll see what I can do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas kindly. Thomas hoped things weren't quite as bad as the children had made them out to be. But as he passed their playground, a large sign read: Playground Closed Until Further Notice.
  • Thomas: The Children were right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thought Thomas sadly. He puffed into the yard and was just about to tell the other engines about the playground when Percy rushed in.
  • Gordon: You look glum, little Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt told driver that he's using Harold to show a visitor the island instead of any of us engines.
  • Gordon: Despicable!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Henry: Disgusting!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Henry.
  • James: Engines are meant to take visitors around our island not that whirlybird thing.
  • Alec Baldwin: James exclaimed. Gordon was the first to see Harold.
  • Gordon: Harold thinks he can go faster than me. I'll show him.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next, it was Henry's turn.
  • Henry: Sir Topham Hatt has chosen Harold because he's more important than me. Well he's not. Harold can't fly through tunnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy stopped by a signal on his branch line near a field were sheep were grazing. Harold hovered for a while then buzzed away.
  • Percy: I know what's he's doing. He's just counting sheep.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Percy puffed along his line, feeling much better about his things. That evening, the engines talked about the situation.
  • Gordon: Harold wants to get rid of us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Henry: He doesn't need tunnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Henry.
  • Percy: Don't worry, he's just counting sheep.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Gordon: Counting sheep? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He's counting how many engines he can get rid of. He'll see how useful I am tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas wanted to mention the children's playground, but solving the mystery of Harold and the visitor came first. The next day, Gordon was travelling to collect his train.
  • Driver: We'll show that whirlybird just how fast you can go, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. But because they were watching Harold, they missed a signal and went onto the wrong line. Gordon was travelling to trouble. Ahead was a tunnel under repair. His driver reduced steam and braked hard, but it was too late.
  • (Gordon crashes into the tunnel)
  • Alec Baldwin: Later, Thomas pulled Gordon clear with the breakdown train. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Gordon's Driver.
  • Thomas: Will Gordon be scrapped, sir?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What makes you think that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas decided to pluck up courage.
  • Thomas: Because the engines think the visitor was here to see if he can be replaced by Harold.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well the engines are wrong and you shouldn't listened to rumours, Thomas. This gentleman is making a new playground for the children. It was easy to find a suitable site from up in the air.
  • Visitor: And what's more.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the visitor.
  • Visitor: That tunnel sand will be perfect for the playground. Sand we found by accident you might say.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt still uses Harold to fly above the island. But all the engines know that Harold is spying on them. He is just being very useful.

  • George Carlin: One day, Edward was talking to Trevor when Douglas steamed by. He was pulling a train of heavy coal cars.
  • Douglas: Come on, Edward. Stop gossiping in the sun when there's work to be done.
  • George Carlin: Later, Edward spoke to Douglas.
  • Edward: Trevor and I are old friends and you and he had in lot of common too.
  • Douglas: We do?
  • George Carlin: Quizzed Douglas.
  • Douglas: And what would that be?
  • Edward: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward quietly. Douglas gasped.
  • Douglas: Don't mention that word! It makes me wheels wobble!
  • Edward: It does the same to Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: He was been sent to the scrapyard, but the Vicar and I saved him and now he's really useful again. Even so, Sir Topham Hatt certainly does need another steam engine here.
  • Douglas: Aye, he does, and quickly.
  • George Carlin: That night, Douglas was still working. He had taken the midnight goods train to a station at a faraway part of the island where only the diesels worked. He was just shunting, ready for his return journey, when...
  • Douglas: That's sounds like a steam engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought. The hiss came again.
  • Douglas: Who's there?
  • George Carlin: Asked Douglas. A whisper came.
  • Oliver: Are you Sir Topham Hatt's engine?
  • Douglas: Aye, and proud of it.
  • Oliver: I'm Oliver and I'm with my break van, Toad, we've run out of coal and had no more steam.
  • Douglas: But what are you doing?
  • Oliver: Escaping?
  • Douglas: From what?
  • Oliver: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Douglas shivered. Then, he remembered Edward's story about saving Trevor.
  • Douglas: I'll be glad to help ya. It lacked look those who were ready to scrap but I'm taking you away.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and firemen agreed to help too. Everyone worked fast.
  • Douglas: No time to turn round. I'll run tender first. Come on.
  • (Dog barking)
  • George Carlin: But before they could clear the station they were stopped.
  • Foreman: Aha!
  • George Carlin: Called the foreman.
  • Foreman: A great western engine and a break van too. You can't take these.
  • Driver: Aye, but there all for us.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas' driver.
  • Driver: See for yourself.
  • George Carlin: The foreman looked all over Oliver.
  • Foreman: Seems in order. Right away, guard.
  • (Douglas and Oliver make an escape)
  • Douglas: That was a near thing.
  • Oliver: We have worse.
  • George Carlin: Replied Oliver and they forced ahead. It was daylight when their journey ended.
  • Douglas: We're home!
  • George Carlin: Cried Douglas.
  • Driver: Shh!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: There the works. We'll find a place for Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Oliver said goodbye and thank you, and Douglas puffed away. The next day, Douglas told the other engines all about Oliver.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt would have to know.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Gordon: Douglas should tell him at once.
  • George Carlin: Added Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, here he is.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now what's this all about?
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but we do need another engine.
  • Gordon: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Ventured Gordon.
  • Gordon: A steam engine, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, unless one saved from scrap, there's little hope.
  • Douglas: But sir, one has...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes indeed. And thanks to you, Douglas, he is now at our works. Oliver is just what we need for Duck's branch line.
  • George Carlin: Everyone cheered. Now Oliver and Toad are mended and painted in full great western colors. Duck and Oliver are happy on their branch line. The others laughed at first and called it "The Little Western". Duck and Oliver were delighted and so the little western, it will always be.

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:'s about being clever and wise.
  • Gordon: He is...
  • George Carlin: Finished Gordon.
  • Gordon: 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 huffily.
  • 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 falls into the turntable well)
  • George Carlin: Oliver laid bruised and bemused, bunkered down in the turntable well. Duck surveyed 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 glistened in the sun. He's a wiser engine too and never made the same about cars again.

Thomas, Percy and The Dragon

  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy are good friends, but sometimes Percy teases Thomas about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all. One evening he was dozing happily in the shed, but Percy wanted to talk.
  • Percy: Wake up, Thomas. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?
  • Thomas: Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was your really.
  • George Carlin: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really?
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • George Carlin: Thomas decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I would like you to go to the harbour tonight. You have to collect something rather unusual.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. Meanwhile, Percy was moving some freight cars into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman changed the switches and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The switches are jammed.
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back for Percy. The workmen will have to mend them in the morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman. Percy was speechless. He watched as the other engines went home to the shed. Night-time came and Percy began to feel very lonely.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He murmured.
  • Percy: It's very dark.
  • (A screeching noise can be heard)
  • Percy: Oh! Oh! What's that?!
  • George Carlin: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realize this.
  • Percy: Oh, I wish Thomas was here too.
  • George Carlin: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's a dragon!
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Workmen lifted the dragon onto Thomas' load loader and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Thomas set off into the misty night. Percy was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Thomas was approaching him.
  • (Thomas and the dragon approach Percy and scare him)
  • George Carlin: Percy woke up with a start.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the switches were mended and Percy puffed back to the junction. Gordon was just about to leave with the express.
  • Percy: You'll never guess what I saw last night.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was in no mood for puzzles.
  • Gordon: I'm a busy engine. I don't have time for your games.
  • Percy: I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • George Carlin: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No one believes me.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • George Carlin: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: Help! Save me!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: It's alright.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas. And he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • George Carlin: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too.
