  • Narrator: Sixteen was very conceited about his new coat of reddish-brown paint. He was at the sheds with Thomas, Duck, Oliver, Stepney, Diesel 10, Stanley and Arthur.
  • Sixteen: Ogh! Oh god, I'm such a splendid engine!
  • Thomas: Sixteen's a conceited engine.
  • Duck: He was always very conceited, isn't he.

  • Narrator: Thomas cleaned up the mess and Sixteen puffed into the yard.
  • Sixteen: Hmm, what train I'm pulling next, driver. Hopefully, the express.
  • Sixteen's Driver: You have to take a goods train. They are in that siding.
  • Sixteen: Egh, a goods train? No way, ha ha. I'm not pulling any goods train. That's least for wiser engines. I had more important trains to pull suchers as the express. Hahahaha! I woudn't be called pulling a goods train! Hahahahaha!

  • Sixteen: Come along! I'm taking you for a ride! Hahahahahahahaha!!
  • Narrator: Later, Duck told Thomas that he can find Sixteen.
  • Duck: May I please find Sixteen with Emily's coaches?
  • Thomas: Yes, you may.
  • Duck: Thank you, Thomas
  • Thomas: You welcome.
  • Duck: I will see you later.
  • Narrator: Duck puffed away to find Sixteen. Later, Sixteen was still puffing along the track with Emily's coaches.
  • Sixteen: PEEP PEEP! Hello, it's me Sixteen, the fabbless, fastest troublesome engine! I'm the pride of the line! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Watch me go fast!
  • Narrator: Sixteen raced past James.

  • Sixteen: What's all that noise outside! Aggh, I'm going to stop it right away! Oh, bother!
  • Narrator: Later, Sixteen was still puffing along the track, when he saw his goods train on the middle of the line, which was being pulled by Arthur.
  • Sixteen: What's that? It just looks like a goods train. The goods train that I didn't pull. Oh, god! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (shuts his eyes and crashes into his goods train)
  • Narrator: The goods train blew up into pieces as Sixteen hit it. Sixteen layed on his side, looking surprised and making steam in all directions.
  • Sixteen: Ow, it hurts. Help, help, help!
  • Narrator: Soon, Emily pulled her coaches back to the yards. Soon, Duck came to the wreckage and chuckled.
  • Duck: Well, well, well, it wasn't Sixteen. Ha ha ha ha. Look what you have done to your goods train you would do now. Ha ha ha.
  • Sixteen: Oh, shut up, Duck! Now, help me get back into the rails, you stupid little engine!
  • Duck: What if I could, Sixteen. What do you see, Sixteen.
  • Duck: Oh no, you're in trouble now, Sixteen.
  • Sixteen: Shut up! What do you mean, Duck? He was well!
  • Duck: Here's the Fat Controller, and now he is very cross.
  • TFC: Sixteen, you have caused confusion and delay! You're supposed to take your goods train, but you have stolen Emily's coaches, because you are not doing your job! As punishment, you're suspended from pulling trains, for the next two months!
  • Sixteen: Two months?! Oh sir, no you can't be serious!!
  • TFC: Yes, I am!
  • Narrator: And the Fat Controller walked sternly away, leaving Sixteen to sob.
  • Duck: Ha ha ha! I hope you learned your lesson.
  • Sixteen: (sniffing) Why?! Why?! (continues sobbing) Mom! Mom! (sobs more)
  • Duck: I'll get you back on the rails!
  • Sixteen: You will? (stops sobbing)
  • Duck: Let's get you back home.
  • Narrator: Duck puffed away to get Rocky to get Sixteen back to the rails. Later, Sixteen was at the shed.
  • Sixteen: Oh, sir. Tell me how long is it being. What if I can pull trains again. It feels it likes it's being ages.
  • TFC: (still angry) It's still two months!!
  • Sixteen: Two months?! Ooooohhhh!
  • Narrator: Sixteen learned not to be reckless again. I hope he learned his lesson. Don't you?


  • Sixteen sounds like a man's voice.
