Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin The Trouble With Mud)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Thomas was being cleaned when Gordon arrived. Mud had blown all over his smart blue paint.
  • Thomas: Hello, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Thomas: You look as you had a mud bath. Be a sensible engine and have a shower instead.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy tank engines do.
  • George Carlin: The wind blew stronger.
  • Driver: Gordon, slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. This made Gordon crosser still.
  • Gordon: Now I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. At the next station was a sign: All Trains Must Wash Down Daily. James had just finished being cleaned.
  • Driver: Come on, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: You feel better too after a good hosedown.
  • Gordon: Bah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon and angrily let off steam.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon's driver.
  • Driver: Now James will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later.
  • Gordon: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'm far too busy to waste time with water.
  • George Carlin: He finished his journey safely and steamed into the big station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting. So are Gordon's coaches and the passengers.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Goodness gracious!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can't pull the train, Henry will have to do it. Gordon you better get cleaned straight away.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was soon being washed.
  • Gordon: Mind my eyes!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled. Then he pulled cars for the rest of the day.
  • Gordon: Freight trains, freight trains!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered. He felt his position deeply.
  • Gordon: That's for you, and you, and you!
  • James: Cars will be cars.
  • George Carlin: Laughed James.
  • Gordon: They won't with me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'll teach them.
  • George Carlin: James got ready to take the express when Gordon returned.
  • Gordon: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Gordon.
  • Gordon: The hills are slippery. You may need help.
  • James: I don't need help on hills.
  • George Carlin: Replied James huffily.
  • James: Gordon thinks he knows everything.
  • George Carlin: Earlier the storm had slipped Gordon's Hill blowing leaves on the tracks which made them slippery. Even know the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. James knew this. The signal shown cleared, and James began to go faster.
  • James: I'll do it, I'll do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. Halfway up, he was not so sure.
  • James: I must do it, I must do it.
  • George Carlin: But his wheels slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the train at all.
  • James: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. His wheels were turning forward, but the heavy coaches pulled him backwards. The haul train started slipping down the hill. His driver shut off steam and put on the brakes, then carefully he stopped the train. Gordon saw everything.
  • Gordon: Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little James. I'm going to push behind.
  • George Carlin: Clouds of smoke and steam billowed from the snorting engines as they struggled up the hill.
  • James: We can do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James.
  • Gordon: We will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon. At last they reached the top.
  • James: Peep peep! Thank you, goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James.
  • Gordon: Poop poop!
  • George Carlin: Answered Gordon.
  • Gordon: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see the engines. Gordon was miserable.
  • Thomas: Please, sir?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can Gordon pull coaches again now?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you understand that having a washdown as a sensle to every engine, then yes, Gordon, you may.
  • Gordon: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Dirty or clean, I'm a famous machine!
  • George Carlin: But no one heard but him.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Red Balloon)
  • Children: (singing) There's so much to see on the Island of Sodor, Waterfalls and windmills, valleys of green. All this and more on the Island of Sodor, Colourful carpet for all to see.
  • Girl: (singing) People happily ride round the Island Flying so high in a big red balloon.
  • Children: (singing) From mountains high and down to the seaside Everyone wishing they'll all come back soon High in the red balloon Up above looking down on everyone You can touch the moon High in the red balloon Floating and spinning and climbing and rising Way up high, look see the red balloon.
  • Girl: (singing) Float over castles and church spires below them Cricket being played on the quaint village green.
  • Children: (singing) Everyone waves at the big red balloon Prettiest picture they've ever seen James sees the red balloon Floating high, wishing he could be like him High in the sky He waits where the river bends.
  • Girl: (singing softly) Waiting to see his friend, hoping he will come again.
  • Children: (singing) Wishing and hoping and waiting and dreaming of flying high Just James and the red balloon.
  • Girl: (singing) James and the red balloon.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin It's Only Snow)
  • Alec Baldwin: It's winter holiday time on the Island of Sodor. It's very cold, but the engines don't mind. They loved this time of year when the stations looked jolly in their decorations. There was plenty of work with passengers and parcels to be delivered no matter what the weather.
  • Edward: Driver says there's more snow on the way.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Edward.
  • James: We'll soon be wearing our snowploughs.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • Henry: You'll enjoy that. Won't you, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Henry.
  • Thomas: You know I wont.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I don't like my snowplough.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sure enough that night, the wind blew and the snow fell heavily. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. He told the engines they would have snowploughs fitted.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And you are to collect a special from Callan Station. It's needed for the village feast on Toby's branch line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was excited about his special, but not about his snowplough.
  • Thomas: Please sir. My plough is awkward and uncomfortable. Do i have to wear it?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Everyone has to wear a snowplough.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. The fitters, his driver and fireman all helped with Thomas' snowplough.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll have to try that again.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas: Big horrid awkward thing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas grumbled. He was much happier when he arrived at Callan Station and saw his special. It was a beautiful christmas tree.
  • Edward: The tree will have lights and stand in the middle of the village.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Make sure you get it to Toby safely.
  • Thomas: I will.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. Thomas arrived at Maithwaite and Toby was very happy to see him.
  • Toby: The villagers will be delighted with this tree.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby said.
  • Toby: I'm glad you had your snowplough. I can't clear the snowdrifts by myself.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas couldn't see there was a huge rock buried under the snow. Suddenly, his snowplough hit the rock.
  • Thomas: Bouncing buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Thomas.
  • Thomas: My plough is broken!
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver tried to stop but the broken plough hit the water tower.
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: We can't go any further.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: And there's no one to help us.
  • Thomas: But the villagers need their tree.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Let me try again, I'm sure I can make it.
  • Alec Baldwin: It wasn't easy without a snowplough. But Thomas was determined. He pushed and he pushed and he pushed. Thomas was trying as hard as he could, but there was just one snowdrift after another. Finally, Thomas and Toby were pulling into the village station. Thomas whistled and the villagers cheered when they saw their beautiful tree.
  • Villagers: Hooray!
  • Alec Baldwin: They said.
  • Villagers: Hooray!
  • Alec Baldwin: The next day, Sir Topham Hatt sent for Thomas. Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: What would Sir Topham Hatt say about his broken snowplough?
  • Alec Baldwin: But Sir Topham Hatt wasn't cross, he was very pleased.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The villagers had a wonderful feast.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were very brave to take on that snow without a plough.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As you know...
  • Alec Baldwin: Continued Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...there are no spare snowploughs. So, you'll just have to do without yours for a while.
  • Thomas: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grinned Thomas.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Little Engines)
  • Children: (singing) Main Line Engines always boast how big they are, Superior by far. But Little Engines toil away from dawn to dusk, Without a fuss or care. Just because we're small doesn't mean we don't stand tall, And we pull our weight like all the others do. You'll be surprised, in spite of their size, Just what little engines can do! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Bigger Engines say little engines play all day, And they're not much use to anyone at all. But we're strong enough to deal with those trucks, That's what little engines are for! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Thomas, Percy, Bill and Ben, You can rely on them, These little engines are the best! Stepney, Duck, and Oliver, They'll give the trucks what for, You'll be so impressed. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. They're our favourite little engines, They're mighty little engines! They're not such little engines after all! They're not such little engines after all!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Bad Day At Castle Loch)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a beautiful day on the Island of Sodor. Donald and Douglas are Scottish twins. They enjoy working on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. But sometimes, they longed for Scotland, their old home. One day, Sir Topham Hatt called them to the docks.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Lord Callan's castle was finally reopening. There is to be a grand celebration tomorrow. I need you to take the banners, buntings and bagpipes to the castle. Harvey, you must load them straight away.
  • Harvey: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Harvey. The twins were excited. Going to Lord Callan's castle would be like going home again. Soon, Harvey had finished loading the freight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Percy.
  • Donald: Lord Callan's castle.
  • Michael Brandon: Donald proudly announced.

  • Douglas: It's not.
  • Donald: It's too.
  • Michael Brandon: Lord Callan's castle is in Misty Valley. Donald and Douglas were determined to get the important goods to the castle in time. They puffed proudly along the loch towards their destination.
  • Donald: There it is!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Donald.
  • Douglas: We're almost there!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Douglas. But there was trouble ahead, trees had fallen across the line. Donald and Douglas stopped just in time. Then, suddenly, there was a loud crash. The break van had been hit by the landslide and come off the rails. They were stuck.
  • Donald's Driver: We could take the causeway.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Donald's Driver. Douglas' Driver knew the causeway was old and rickety.
  • Douglas' Driver: It's too dangerous.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. The twins were worried.
  • Donald: We'll never get to the castle now.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Donald.
  • Donald's Driver: I'll call for help.
  • Tailor: Splendid outfit, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt was trying on his present for Lord Callan when he heard the news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Donald and Douglas trapped by the loch?
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll send help as soon as i can.
  • Michael Brandon: But the hours passed. It grew dark and cold and still no help had come. Suddenly, the twins spotted something strange through the mist.
  • Donald: What's that!?
  • Michael Brandon: Called Donald.
  • Douglas: Is it the monster!?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Douglas.
  • Donald: For sure it is.
  • Michael Brandon: Answered Donald.
  • Harvey: It's not a monster, it's us.
  • Michael Brandon: It was Harvey and the breakdown crane. Donald and Douglas were relieved. By morning, the lines were cleared. Donald and Douglas hurried off to the castle. Lord Callan's workers were waiting to unload the freight cars. Soon, the castle was decorated. The grand opening was a great success. Lord Callan was pleased.
  • Lord Callan: A splendid pair of engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And very useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Donald and Douglas: Och aye!
  • Michael Brandon: Agreed the twins.
