Transcript

  • (We open this compilation with the Britt Allcroft logo, the Thomas US Season 4 intro (version 2) and the start of The Runaway)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was ill. Workmen had been trying to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward must take you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Thomas felt very miserable. Then, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to help Percy and Toby while Thomas is away.
  • George Carlin: Duck was delighted. He already knew Percy and soon made friends with Toby and Bertie. Terence the Tractor gave him a big welcome too.
  • Terence: Take care of Thomas' coaches.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Terence: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Duck was very gentle with the coaches. Annie and Clarabel were impressed.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: When Thomas came back, Annie and Clarabel told him how well duck had managed. Thomas was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: The works have left Thomas' handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Thomas found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Thomas' fireman was ill and a relief man took his place.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Henry's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Thomas' handbrake. Thomas simmered happily.
  • Thomas: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He tought. As he saw Henry slowly approaching. But Thomas' brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver friman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Annie and Clarabel. But Thomas, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Harold the Helicopter. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Thomas was tiring.
  • Thomas: I need to stop, i need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Thomas saw Harold land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • George Carlin: At last Thomas stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Harold.
  • Harold: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Weirdly, Thomas agreed with him.
  • (A nameplate sequence happens and we begin Wrong Road)
  • George Carlin: Thomas' branch line is important and so is Edward. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Sir Topham Hatt does not allow the heavier main line engines like Gordon to run on them. But one day, the way Gordon was talking, he would have tought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • George Carlin: Asked Edward.
  • Gordon: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Edward: Never mind, Gordon. I'm sure BoCo will let you pull his freight cars sometimes.
  • George Carlin: Gordon spluttered.
  • Gordon: I wont pull BoCo's dirty cars. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Edward: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt would never approve.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed away. Edward chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two engines pulled two fast trains from the station. Gordon always leaves first with an express for the main line. Edward follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Gordon to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • George Carlin: He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Gordon started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Gordon had been stopped and brought back, Edward was already late with his train.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Edward along the main line. Gordon was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bill and Ben peeped into the yard. There were no cars for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Gordon will be much better fun.
  • Bill: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Sheesh!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ben.
  • Ben: It's Gordon.
  • Bill: It looks like Gordon but it can't be. Gordon never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bill: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Ben: No Bill, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • (Gordon's Whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • George Carlin: BoCo quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the cars he brought for Bill and Ben. This made the twin behave at once. Gordon tought BoCo was wonderful.
  • Gordon: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • BoCo: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • George Carlin: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Rusty To The Rescue)
  • George Carlin: In springtime, Rusty loves to visit a faraway place. It's filled with bluebells. The air smells sweet and Rusty thinks there's no better place than be. One day, Thomas was passing by just as Rusty was having a drink.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep! Good morning. Your driver looks a little worried. I wonder why.
  • Rusty: I don't know.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: But I soon will. Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: But there's something wrong?
  • Rusty's Driver: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Rusty's Driver: They need another engine to help us run the special line.
  • Rusty: A bluebell engine.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Rusty.
  • Rusty: Maybe I can find one.
  • George Carlin: Later, Rusty saw Douglas and Percy. Rusty had an idea.
  • Rusty: Can you help me find another engine?
  • Douglas: Where?
  • Rusty: Where'd you found Oliver?
  • Douglas: You mean on the Other Railway?
  • Rusty: Yes. I'm looking for a bluebell engine.
  • George Carlin: And Rusty explained everything.
  • Douglas: I like to help. But these days it's only Diesels that go there.
  • George Carlin: Then Rusty decided.
  • Rusty: So that's were I go.
  • Douglas: Take care.
  • George Carlin: Rusty told the driver all about the plan and that night he came to the shed.
  • Rusty's Driver: The manager says he'll make a home for a bluebell engine if you find one.
  • Rusty: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: We'll find one tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: It took them all the next day to travel to the Other Railway. Darkness fell and the cold wind blew.
  • Rusty: Ooh. What's that?
  • George Carlin: But it was only the sounds of a lonely scrapyard. Diesel silent and still lined up guard.
  • Diesels: Who are you?
  • George Carlin: Rusty plucked up courage.
  • Rusty: I'm a shed and sidings inspection diesel. Have you any engines in the shed?
  • Diesels: No! None!
  • George Carlin: Rusty rally began.
  • Rusty: Then what about the sidings?
  • Diesels: One. We have one.
  • George Carlin: Rusty grew braver still.
  • Rusty: Then I'll just go and inspect.
  • George Carlin: A small engine with a tall funnel stood sad and alone in a shadowy siding. His driver was huddled in the cab, keeping it company.
  • Rusty: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: Do you like bluebells?
  • George Carlin: The engine looks dawdled.
  • Stepney: Yes, bluebells are beautiful.
  • Rusty: Then you're soon going to see lots of them because I'm getting you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Everyone worked fast. It was difficult to set the fire, but soon it was glowing hot and Stepney had a good head of steam. Rusty's engineer agreed to be Stepney's fireman. So off they set, past the bleak and bluey lines of diesels.
  • Diesels: Where is he going?
  • George Carlin: They hissed.
  • Rusty: Just down the line.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rusty, and they chuffered quickly away.
  • Rusty: We've done it.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Rusty.
  • Rusty: We're over the board and back on the railway. Mission accomplished.
  • George Carlin: When Rusty and the engine arrived in the valley, a big welcome awaited him.
  • Manager: We shall mend you and give you your new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: Said the manager. His driver was delighted.
  • Stepney's Driver: You lucky old engine. You've been saved by the bluebell railway.
  • Stepney: And my friend Rusty. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Rusty.
  • George Carlin: Now the little engine is has happy as can be and helps the passengers and visit at bluebell time. His name is Stepney but everyone calls him the bluebell engine.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and Stepney)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was feeling very happy. His blue coat shone in the sun, he was right on time, and all around his branch line the countryside seems prettier than ever before.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Good morning, Percy.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Thomas: My branch is the pride of the line. Wouldn't you agree?
  • Percy: Uh, yes, Thomas, of course, but, uh...
  • Thomas: But what, Percy? Out with it.
  • Percy: Well there is another engine with the famous branch line too.
  • Thomas: Who? Where?
  • Percy: His name's Stepney. He's far away, but Sir Topham Hatt says he may visit us.
  • Thomas: When?
  • Percy: Oh, someday.
  • George Carlin: And Percy hurried away. Meanwhile Stepney puffed steadily along his line. It isn't very long, and that made him feel a little sad. Later he saw Rusty, the little diesel had saved Stepney from scrap.
  • Stepney: Everyone's been so kind, but my railway was so sure, that I do miss a good long run.
  • Rusty: I think you should tell driver too.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rusty.
  • Rusty: I'm sure he'll understand.
  • George Carlin: Stepney soon discovered that indeed he did.
  • Driver: You know, Stepney, I feel just the same way.
  • George Carlin: That evening, he had exciting news.
  • Driver: Guess what, Stepney? Sir Topham Hatt has invited to the other engines on his own railway. Manager agreed. It'll be really long run to get there.
  • Stepney: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: Sighed Stepney. They set off next morning. But now, all the other engines were talking about Stepney.
  • Percy: He runs a famous branch line. Did you know that?
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. Thomas was feeling a little jealous.
  • Thomas: Huh! It may be famous but my branch is the first on the line. Everyone knows that too.
  • George Carlin: And he huffed away to fetch his coaches.
  • Percy: Look!
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Percy.
  • Percy: Why have they all come? There's no train yet.
  • George Carlin: But Percy was wrong. The signal dropped, and from far away an engine's whistle.
  • Douglas: Here he comes!
  • George Carlin: Yelled Douglas. Stepney puffed proudly through the junction.
  • Edward: I hope you'll meet Thomas too.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You both have branch lines to be proud of.
  • George Carlin: Then Stepney set off to help Duck shunt coaches in the yards, and they worked happily together all afternoon. At last, Thomas arrived.
  • Thomas: Sorry, can't talk. It's time for my last branch line train. Mustn't be late.
  • George Carlin: He was hardly out of sight when the engines heard shouting at the station. Moments later came the alarm.
  • Man: Stop all train!
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: A special, is it? I see.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was impatient.
  • Thomas: Why are we waiting? My passengers have been delayed.
  • Driver: Sorry, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We're been shunted to allow another train to pass.
  • George Carlin: Soon they heard an unfamiliar puffing sound. There was Stepney with his headlamp swang and whistle blowing. He gathered speed and disappeared.
  • Thomas: Well bust my boiler!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas the Tank Engine. Next morning, he was still fuming.
  • Thomas: Shunted! And on my own branch too! It's a disgrace!
  • Stepney: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Stepney.
  • Stepney: I was a special.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • Stepney: An important passenger arrived just as you left. He ordered a special train and Duck let me take it. We had a splendid run, but uh...
  • Thomas: But...
  • George Carlin: Finished Thomas.
  • Thomas: It can make an engine nervous not to know the line.
  • Stepney: Excatly.
  • George Carlin: Said Stepney.
  • Stepney: You're such an expert.
  • George Carlin: Thomas felt much better. He couldn't be cross anymore and began telling Stepney all about his branch line.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gordon Takes A Dip)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Gordon: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid engine, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Henry.
  • Gordon: What cheek!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Henry is too big for his wheels. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Percy: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy innocently.
  • Gordon: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any engine. But to come off the rails like Henry did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • George Carlin: Then it was Henry's turn to take the express. Gordon watch him getting ready.
  • Gordon: Be careful, Henry. You're not pulling the flying kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • George Carlin: Henry went off in a huff, and Gordon yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Gordon: Is it coaches or freight cars?
  • Driver: Cars.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Cars.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Puh-huh.
  • George Carlin: Gordon's fire was slow to start, so Edward had to push Gordon to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Gordon: I won't go, I won't go!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. At last, Gordon was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Gordon was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Gordon: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Gordon: Oosh!
  • George Carlin: He hissed.
  • Gordon: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great engine. Don't you understand that?
  • George Carlin: They telephoned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So Gordon didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Edward to take it please. And Gordon? Leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • George Carlin: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Oh, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • George Carlin: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Gordon fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Gordon fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • George Carlin: Gordon layed in the ditch all day.
  • Gordon: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Gordon: I shall never get out.
  • George Carlin: But that evening, they lifted Gordon and made a rope of sleepers under his wheels to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and James and Henry pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Gordon crawled home, a sadder and wiser engine.
