Spike, Pipsqueak and the Dragon

Narrator: "Spike and Pipsqueak are good friends, but sometimes Pipsqueak teases Spike about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all.

One evening he was dozing happily, but Pipsqueak wanted to talk."

Pipsqueak: "Wake up, Spike. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?"

Spike: "Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was you really."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak went on teasing him."

Pipsqueak: "I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight."

Spike: "Why?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Spike: "I quite like the dark."

Pipsqueak: "Oh really?"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I am surprised. I always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?"

Narrator: "Spike decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead.

Next day, Hoity Toity came to see him."

Hoity Toity: "I would like you to go to the harbour tonight to collect something rather unusual."

Spike: "What sort of something?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Wait and see."

Narrator: "Replied Hoity Toity.

Meanwhile, Pipsqueak was moving some changelings into a siding. Filthy Rich arrived with his goods load. The signalman cleared the path and Pipsqueak waited on the siding until Filthy Rich had steamed by.

Then, there was trouble."

Signalman: "The path is blocked."

Narrator: "Called the signalman."

Signalman: "I can't clear it for Pipsqueak. The workmen will have to clear it in the morning. It's too late now."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak's driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "I'm sorry, Pipsqueak. But you will have to stay here for the night."

Pipsqueak: "Where are you going?"

Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak's Fireman: "Home for tea."

Narrator: "Replied the fireman. Pipsqueak was speechless.

He watched as the other animals went home. Nighttime came and Pipsqueak began to feel very lonely."

Pipsqueak: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "He murmured."

Pipsqueak: "It's very dark.

OH! OH! What's that?!"

Narrator: "It was only an owl, but Pipsqueak didn't realize this."

Pipsqueak: "Oh, I wish Spike were here too."

Narrator: "He sighed.

Spike was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was."

Spike: "Cinders and Ashes!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "It's a big dragon!"

Spike's Driver: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Spike's Driver: "This dragon is for the carnival tomorrow."

Narrator: "Workmen lifted the dragon onto Spike's wagon and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Spike set off into the misty night.

Pipsqueak was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Spike was approaching him.

Pipsqueak woke up with a start."

Pipsqueak: "Help!"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes."

Narrator: "Next morning the path was cleared and Pipsqueak puffed back to the junction. Big Macintosh was just about to leave with his buffaloes."

Pipsqueak: "You'll never guess what I saw last night."

Narrator: "Big Mac was in no mood for puzzles."

Big Macintosh: "I'm a busy horse. I don't have time for your games."

Pipsqueak: "I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights."

Narrator: "Big Mac snorted."

Big Macintosh: "You've been in the sun too long. Your head has cracked."

Narrator: "When the other animals heard the news, they laughed too."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look out, Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Or the dragon may gobble you up!"

Pipsqueak: "No one believes me."

Narrator: "Huffed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all."

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak soon found out that he hadn't."

Pipsqueak: "Help! Save me!"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak."

Spike: "It's alright."

Narrator: "Whistled Spike. And, he explained about the carnival."

Spike: "By the way, how was your night out?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak decided to tell Spike the truth."

Spike: "Well, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too."

Night Light and Hondo Flanks

Narrator: "Night Light and Hondo Flanks are unicorns, and have arrived from Canterlot to help Hoity Toity, but only one unicorn had been expected. The unicorns meant well, but did cause confusion. Hoity Toity had given them numbers; Night Light 9, and Hondo Flanks 10, but he was still planning to send one unicorn home.

There was a pony named Dr. Caballeron in the yard that had taken a dislike to Hondo. Things always went wrong when he had to take him out. His work was late, and he was blamed. Hondo began to worry.

Night Light was angry."

Night Light: "You're a muckle nuisance!"

Narrator: "Said Night Light."

Night Light: "It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting!"

Dr. Caballeron: "You can't."

Narrator: "Said Dr. Caballeron."

Dr. Caballeron: "I'm essential."

Night Light: "Ach! Are you?"

Narrator: "Night Light burst out."

Night Light: "You're nothing but a screechin' and a noise when all's said and done. Spite Hondo, would you? Take that!"

Dr. Caballeron: "Ow! Oh!"

Narrator: "Cried Dr. Caballeron."

Night Light: "There's more coming, should you misbehave."

Narrator: "Dr. Caballeron behaved better after that. Until one day, Night Light had an accident.

The road was slippery. He couldn't stop in time."


"Night Light wasn't hurt, but Hoity Toity was most annoyed."

Hoity Toity: "I am disappointed, Night Light. I did not expect such, um... clumsiness from you.

I have decided to send Hondo Flanks back and keep you."

Night Light: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Night Light."

Hoity Toity: "I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Cranky Doodle Donkey will have to help with the goods work, while you are mended. Cranky won't like that."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity was right. Cranky grumbled dreadfully about extra work."

Hondo Flanks: "Anyone would think,"

Narrator: "Said Hondo."

Hondo Flanks: "That Night Light had his accident on purpose.

I heard tell about a donkey and some tar barrels."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Cranky: "It's not funny!"

Narrator: "He didn't like to be reminded of his own accident."

Hondo Flanks: "Well, well, well. Surely, Cranky, it wasn't you. You didn't say!"

Narrator: "Cranky didn't say. He slouched sulkily away."

Dr. Caballeron: "Cranky is cross."

Narrator: "Snickered Dr. Caballeron."

Dr. Caballeron: "We'll try to make him crosser still."

Changelings: "Hold back!"

Narrator: "Giggled the changelings to each other.

Cranky did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Shining Armor's station.

Luckily, Hondo Flanks was there."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Help me up the hill, please."

Narrator: "Panted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "These changelings are playing tricks."

Hondo Flanks: "We'll show them!"

Narrator: "Said Hondo.

Slowly but surely, the snorting animals forced the changelings up the hill, but Cranky was losing breath."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I can't do it! I can't do it!"

Hondo Flanks: "Leave it to me!"

Narrator: "Shouted Hondo Flanks.

The conductor was anxious."

Conductor: "Go steady! Dr. Caballeron's breaking!"

Narrator: "Dr. Caballeron was in pieces.

No one had been hurt, and soon Shining Armor came to clear the mess. Hoity Toity was on board."

Hoity Toity: "I might have known it would be Hondo Flanks!"

Narrator: "He said."

Shining Armor: "Hondo was grand, sir."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "Cranky had no breath left, but Hondo worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard."

Hoity Toity: "Two would have been enough."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "I want to be fair, Hondo, but I don't know. I really don't know."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity was making up his mind about which unicorn to send away. But that's another story."

The Deputation

Narrator: "Snow came early to Ponyville. It was heavier than usual. Most animals hate snow. Night Light and Hondo Flanks were used to it. Back to back, with a cart behind them and a shovel for each of them, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forwards, patrolling the roads.

Generally, the snow slipped away easily, but sometimes they found deeper drifts.

Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try, when..."

Filthy Rich: "Help! Help!"

Hondo Flanks: "Lorsh sakes, Night Light! It's Filthy Rich!

Don't worry yourself, Filthy Rich! Wait a while, we'll have you out!"

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The unicorns were looking glum. They told him Hoity Toity was making a decision."

Night Light and Hondo Flanks: "He'll send us away for sure!"

Pipsqueak: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Big Macintosh: "A lot of nonsense about a broken signal box."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Macintosh."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "That Dr. Caballeron, too."

Narrator: "Put in Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Good riddance, That's what I say."

Filthy Rich: "The unicorns were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "It isn't fair!"

Narrator: "They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what.

Pipsqueak decided to talk to Shining Armor about it."

Shining Armor: "What you need,"

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor,"

Shining Armor: "Is a deputation."

Narrator: "He explained what that was.

Pipsqueak ran back quickly."

Pipsqueak: "Shining Armor says we need... a, a depot station!"

Big Macintosh: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "The question is.."

Filthy Rich: "What is a... desperation?"

Narrator: "Asked Filthy Rich."

Pipsqueak: "It's when animals tell Hoity Toity something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Soarin: "Did you say 'Tell Hoity Toity?'"

Narrator: "Asked Soarin thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Big Macintosh: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "That Pipsqueak be our... um... disputation."

Pipsqueak: "Me?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I can't!"

Filthy Rich: "Rubbish, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "It's easy.

Big Macintosh: "That's settled, then."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Mac.

Poor Pipsqueak wished it wasn't."

Hoity Toity: "Hello, Pipsqeauk. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak jumped."

Pipsqueak: "Uh, uh, yes sir, yes Sir, please sir."

Hoity Toity: "You look nervous, Pipsqueak. What's the matter."

Pipsqueak: "Please sir, uh, they've, they've made me a desperation, sir. Uh, to speak to you, sir. I don't like it, sir."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity pondered."

Hoity Toity: "Do you mean a deputation, Pipsqueak?"

Pipsqueak: "Yes, sir, please, sir. Uh, it's Night Light and Hondo Flanks. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be killed, Sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Uh, please, sir, don't send them away."

Hoity Toity: "Thank you, Pipsqueak. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Hoity Toity spoke to the animals."

Hoity Toity: "I've had a... a deputation. I understand your feelings and I've given a lot of thought to the matter."

Narrator: "He paused impressively."

Hoity Toity: "Night Light and Hondo Flanks, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall each have some new clothes."

Narrator: "The unicorns were surprised."

Night Light and Hondo Flanks: "Thank you, sir."

Hoity Toity: "But your clothes will have your names printed on them. We'll have no more mistakes."

Night Light and Hondo Flanks: "Thank you, sir. Uh, does, does this mean that the both of us..."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity smiled."

Hoity Toity: "It means..."

Narrator: "But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles."

(All the animals cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The unicorns were here to stay."

Time for Trouble

Narrator: "Ponyville had many visitors, and Hoity Toity had scheduled more train. Big Macintosh, the proud horse, had to work harder than ever before."

Big Macintosh: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He called to the buffaloes."

Big Macintosh: "Come on, come on, come on! The passengers rely on me to be on time."

Narrator: "Whenever Big Mac finished one journey, it was time for another to begin."

Big Macintosh: "Never mind."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Big Macintosh: "I like a long run to stretch my legs."

Narrator: "Even so, Hoity Toity decided that Big Mac needed a rest."

Hoity Toity: "Cranky Doodle Donkey shall do your work."

Narrator: "He said kindly. Cranky was delighted. He liked to show off his smart brown hair and was determined to be as fast as Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You know, little Braeburn."

Narrator: "He boasted."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm an important donkey; everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time. That's me."

Braeburn: "Says you."

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn. Just then Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "Your parts are worn, Braeburn. So you must go to the hospital to get better."

Braeburn: "Can I take Scootaloo, sir?"

Hoity Toity: "No. What would the passengers do without her?"

Narrator: "Braeburn saw Pipsqueak by the water fountain."

Pipsqueak: "Don't worry, Braeburn. I'll take care of Scootaloo until you get back."

Narrator: "Soon Braeburn was out on the main road. He clanked as he walked again. He's a little pony with small hooves. His body didn't hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal."

Braeburn: "Good."

Narrator: "He thought."

Braeburn: "There's a station a head. I can have a nice drink and a rest until Cranky had passed."

Narrator: "Braeburn was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Braeburn bofore. Braeburn's driver tried to explain, but the new signalman wouldn't listen."

Signalman: "We must clear the line for Cranky with the express. You'll have to get more water at the next station."

Narrator: "Hurrying used a lot of water, and his body was soon empty. Poor Braeburn was out of stamina and stranded on the main road."

Braeburn's Fireman: "We must warn Cranky."

Narrator: "Said the fireman. Then he saw Pipsqueak and Scootaloo."

Braeburn's Fireman: "Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency."

Narrator: "Scootaloo hated leaving Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "You're taking the fireman to warn Cranky, that's a big help."

Narrator: "Scootaloo felt much better. Cranky was fuming when he heard the news."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm going to be late."

Signalman: "My fault."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "I didn't understand about Braeburn."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "Now, Cranky."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "You'll have to push Braeburn."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What, me!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Me push Braeburn and pull my buffaloes too?"

Narrator: "Grumbling dreadfully, Cranky set off to find Braeburn. He came up behind Braeburn and gave him a bump."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Get on, you!"

Narrator: "Cranky had to work very hard. When he reached the hospital station, he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform."

Boy: "Coo, the express is late and it's got two animals. I just Cranky couldn't pull it on his own, so Braeburn had to help him."

Braeburn: "Never mind, Cranky."

Narrator: "Whispered Braeburn."

Braeburn: "They're only joking."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hah!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky. Braeburn just smiled."

A Scarf for Pipsqueak

Narrator: "It was a cold winter's morning in Ponyville. The wind was bitter and the ground hard with frost. Spike and Pipsqueak were cold and cross."

Spike: "All I want is a warm body."

Narrator: "Huffed Spike."

Spike: "Firelighter knows that. He's late."

Pipsqueak: "He's not late."

Narrator: "Replied Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "This weather woke us up early."

Narrator: "Gusts of wind swirled round the library, tossing flakes of snow towards Spike. Then they swooshed around Pipsqueak too."

Pipsqueak: "Why don't we talk about something else?"

Narrator: "Shivered Pipsqueak."

Spike: "Yes."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "Like how silly we'll look when you heads turn into icicles."

Pipsqueak: "That's not funny. Maybe we'll stop feeling cold if we talk about warm things, like sunshine and steam."

Spike: "And firelighters."

Narrator: "Muttered Spike."

Pipsqueak: "Scarves!"

Narrator: "Continued Pipsqueak."

Spike: "Scarves."

Narrator: "Laughed Spike."

Spike: "That's what you need, Pipsqueak. A woolly scarf round your neck."

Narrator: "Spike was only teasing. But Pipsqueak thought happily about scarves until the firelighter came.

Hoity Toity was enjoying hot porridge for breakfast. He was looking forward to taking important visitors on a tour of the town, and had pressed his special trousers."

Hoity Toity: "I shall put them in my trunk."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity said to Princess Celestia."

Hoity Toity: "And change into them just before the photographs are taken."

Narrator: "Then he set off to catch his ride.

Pipsqueak was now working hard. His body was warm, and he had plenty of strength, but he still thought about scarves. He saw them everywhere he went."

Pipsqueak: "My neck's cold, my neck's cold."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Pipsqueak: "I want a scarf, I want a scarf."

Filthy Rich: "Rubbish, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Ponies don't wear scarves."

Pipsqueak: "Ponies with proper necks do."

Narrator: "Replied Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Your neck is too big."

Narrator: "Before Filthy Rich could answer, Pipsqueak puffed away. Filthy Rich snorted. He was looking forward to pulling the special cart.

It was time for the photographs. Everyone was excited. Hoity Toity was waiting on the platform for his trousers. They were in a trunk amongst a big load of baggage. The porters were taking the baggage trolley across the line. They were walking backwards to see that nothing fell off.

Pipsqueak was still being cheeky. His driver always shut off steam just outside the station. Pipsqueak wanted to surprise the buffaloes by coming in as quietly as he could.

But the porters didn't here him either. Pipsqueak gave them such a fright that boxes and bags burst everywhere."

Pipsqueak: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Groaned Pipsqueak.

Sticky streams of jam trickled down Pipsqueak's face. A hat fell on his hoof. Worst of all, a pair of trousers coiled lovingly round his neck.

Everyone was a very angry. Hoity Toity seized the top hat."

Hoity Toity: "Mine!"

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "Pipsqueak, look at this!"

Pipsqueak: "Yes sir. I am sir."

Hoity Toity: "My best trousers too!"

Pipsqueak: "Yes sir. Please sir."

Hoity Toity: "We must pay the passengers for their spoiled clothes, and my trousers are ruined. I hope this will teach you not to play tricks with the buffaloes."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak went off to the yard. He felt very silly. On the way, he met Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hello, Pipsqueak. So you found a scarf, eh? But legs go in trousers, not necks."

Narrator: "And he puffed off to tell Filthy Rich the news.

That evening, Spike and Pipsqueak were resting in the shed. Pipsqueak's driver had taken away the trousers and given Pipsqueak a good rubdown."

Spike: "Firelighter's promised to come early tomorrow."

Narrator "Said Spike. Filthy Rich arrived. He'd enjoyed taking the visitors around and now felt sorry for Pipsqueak too."

Filthy Rich: "Driver says the weather will be warmer tomorrow. You won't need a scarf, Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Certainly not."

Narrator: "Replied Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Ponies don't need scarves. Ponies need warm bodies. Everyone knows that."

The Celebrity Ponysel

Narrator: "Snips and Snails are little unicorns. Each has a horn, four legs and a tail. Their changelings help them deliver china clay. It is needed for pottery, paint, paper, and many other things.

The unicorns are now kept busy, taking the changelings for animals on the main line, and for ships in the harbor.

One morning, they arranged some changelings, and went away for more.

They returned to find them all gone. The unicorns were most surprised.

Their drivers examined a footprint."

Drivers: "That's a celebrity pony."

Narrator: "They said."

Snips: "It's a what-ll?"

Narrator: "Asked Snips."

Snails: "A Celebrity Ponysel, I think."

Narrator: "Replied Snails."

Snails: "There's a notice about them in our house."

Snips: "Coughs and sneezes spread Celebrity Ponysels."

Snails: "You had a cough in your head yesterday. It's your fault the celebrity ponysel came."

Snips: "It isn't!"

Snails: "It is!"

Drivers: "Stop arguing, you two."

Narrator: "Laughed their drivers."

Drivers: "Let's go and rescue our changelings."

Narrator: "Snips and Snails were horrified."

Snips and Snails: "But the celebrity ponysel will magic us away, like the changelings!"

Drivers: "He won't magic us."

Narrator: "Replied their drivers."

Drivers: "We'll more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know your friends, so we'll take away your names and cutie marks, and then this is what we'll do."

Narrator: "Puffing hard, the unicorns set off on their journey to find the rich pony.

They were looking forward to playing tricks on him.

Creeping into the yard, they found the celebrity pony on the siding with the missing changelings. Snails hid behind, but Snips went boldly alongside.

The celebrity pony looked up."

Fancy Pants: "Do you mind?"

Snips: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Snips."

Snips: "I do. I want my changelings, please."

Fancy Pants: "These are mine."

Narrator: "Said the celebrity pony."

Fancy Pants: "Go away!"

Narrator: "Snips pretended to be frightened."

Snips: "You're a big bully."

Narrator: "He whimpered."

Snips: "You'll be sorry!"

Narrator: "He ran back and hid behind the changelings on the other side.

Snails now came forward."

Snails: "Changeling stealer!"

Narrator: "Hissed Snails. He ran away, too. Snips took his place.

This went on and on until the celebrity pony's eyes nearly popped out."

Fancy Pants: "Stop! You're making me giddy!"

Narrator: "The two unicorns gazed at him."

Fancy Pants: "Are there two of you?"

Snips and Snails: "Yes, we're friends."

Fancy Pants: "I might have known it!"

Narrator: "Just then, Shining Armor bustled up."

Shining Armor: "Snips and Snails, why are you playing here?"

Snips: "We're not playing!"

Narrator: "Protested Snips."

Snails: "We're rescuing our changelings."

Narrator: "Squeaked Snails."

Snails: "Even you don't take our changelings without asking, but this celebrity ponysel did."

Shining Armor: "There's no cause to be rude."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor severely."

Shining Armor: "This celebrity pony is the most important pony in Canterlot."

Narrator: "The unicorns were abashed."

Snips: "We're sorry, Mr., uh..."

Fancy Pants: "Never mind."

Narrator: "The celebrity pony smiled."

Fancy Pants: "Call me Fancy Pants. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the changelings."

Shining Armor: "That's all right, then."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "Now off you go, Snips and Snails, fetch Fancy Pants' changelings, then you can take this lot.

There's no real harm in them,"

Narrator: "He said to Fancy Pants."

Shining Armor: "But they're maddening at times."

Narrator: "Fancy Pants chuckled."

Fancy Pants: "Maddening,"

Narrator: "He said."

Fancy Pants: "Is the word."

Shining Armor's Exploit

Narrator: "Angel the Rabbit was giving some visitors a tour of Ponyville.

It was their last afternoon, and Shining Armor was preparing to take them to meet Snips and Snails. He found it hard to start the heavy buffaloes."

Filthy Rich: "Did you see him straining?"

Narrator: "Asked Filthy Rich."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Positively painful."

Narrator: "Remarked Cranky."

Big Macintosh: "Just pathetic!"

Narrator: "Grunted Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "He should give up and be preserved before it's too late."

Soarin: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "Burst out Soarin."

Soarin: "You're all jealous. Shining Armor's better than any of you."

Fancy Pants: "You're right, Soarin."

Narrator: "Said Fancy Pants."

Fancy Pants: "Shining Armor's old, but he'll surprise us all."

Shining Armor: "I've done it! We're off! I've done it! We're off!"

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor as he finally puffed out of the station.

Snips and Snails were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they took the party to the China Clay Works in a cart special.

Everyone had a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed.

Then Shining Armor took the visitors home.

On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffeted Shining Armor. His sand box failed, and his fireman went in front dropping sand on the road by hand.

Suddenly, Shining Armor's hooves slipped fiercely, and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time."

Shining Armor's Driver: "One of your horseshoes broke, Shining Armor."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Shining Armor's Driver: "We've taken your other horseshoes off. Now you're like an old-fashioned unicorn. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight."

Shining Armor: "I'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Promised Shining Armor. Shining Armor puffed and pulled his hardest, but his hooves kept slipping and he could not start the heavy buffaloes. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train making adjustments between the coaches."

Shining Armor's Driver: "We've loosened the couplings, Shining Armor. Now you can pick your buffaloes up one by one, just as you do with changelings."

Shining Armor: "That'll be much easier."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first buffalo moving helped to start the second, and the second helped the third."

Shining Armor: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Shining Armor."

Shining Armor's Driver: "Steady, boy!"

Narrator: "Warned his driver."

Shining Armor's Driver: "Well done, boy! You've got them! You've got them!"

Narrator: "And he listened happily to Shining Armor's steady beat as he forged slowly but surely ahead.

At last, battered, weary, but unbeaten, Shining Armor steamed in. Filthy Rich was waiting for the visitors with the special wagon."

Shining Armor: "Peep! Peep!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity angrily pointed to clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Shining Armor, his driver and fireman.

Soarin and Fancy Pants saw to it that Shining Armor was left in peace. Big Mac and Cranky remained respectfully silent."
