Script

  • (We see a CGI Thomas puffing along a bridge. When he is gone, the Thomas and Friends logo and the Making Tracks To Great Destinations text appear)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 8-10 intro. After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surronded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: Hello, Thomas!
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (An engine puffing by sequence then happens and we start today's episode)
  • Michael Brandon: Today on the Island of Sodor, we find out what happens when Percy's "special" flies away. But first, Thomas is on a trip to the seaside.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Too Hot For Thomas)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a baking hot summer on the Island of Sodor. The sun was shining brightly. James and Toby were taking children to the seaside. It was a wonderful job. All the engines liked seeing the children's happy faces, and they loved hearing them cheer when they saw the sea. Thomas wished he was taking children to the seaside. But Thomas was taking a big tank of raspberry syrup to the ice cream factory. Down on the beach, it was very hot, and the ice cream lady had run out of ice cream. So when Thomas arrived at the ice cream factory, the factory manager was waiting for him.
  • Factory Manager: We have to make lots more ice cream.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Factory Manager: You must go and get the cream, the chocolate and the strawberries.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was disappointed. He had lots to collect, and he wanted to take children to the seaside.
  • Driver: If we get everything in time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: Then we can still take some children.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas rushed to the dairy. He collected the cream... and he puffed away quickly. Next, Thomas had to collect some strawberries. So he raced through the countryside to Farmer McColl's. Then Thomas had to stop for James.
  • James: Out of the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: Passenger train coming through!
  • Michael Brandon: James's carriages were full of laughing children. They were going to the seaside.
  • Thomas: Why does James get to take the children?
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas. At last the crossing was clear and Thomas puffed away.
  • Thomas: If I'm quick, I can still take some of the children.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed, so Thomas raced as fast as he could. Soon, Thomas arrived at Farmer McColl's.
  • Thomas: Please be quick!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas panted. The farm workers loaded his freight car. Before long, it was filled with plump, ripe strawberries.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas chuffed, and he raced away. Next, he had to go to the chocolate factory. Thomas hurried through the baking sun.
  • Thomas: I've still got time to take some children to the seaside.
  • Michael Brandon: He panted. Thomas puffed faster and faster. His wheels clattered and his pistons pumped. But he puffed so fast, the signalman didn't change the points in time. Thomas raced down the wrong track.
  • Thomas: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. Thomas had to reverse slowly and carefully back to the points. Then he had to wait while Toby went past. Toby was taking more children to the seaside. They were having a wonderful time.
  • Thomas: Everyone gets to take the children except me!
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas. At last the signalman changed the points. Thomas reversed back onto the track and soon he was on his way once again. When Thomas arrived at the chocolate factory it was getting late.
  • Thomas: Hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: If I'm quick, I might still get to take some children.
  • Michael Brandon: The workmen loaded Thomas's freight car as fast as they could. It was soon filled with heaps of chocolatey cocoa powder. Thomas was ready to go. But the shunters hadn't released the brakes on the freight cars. Thomas pulled as hard as he could, but the freight cars wouldn't move.
  • Thomas: I have to hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. He heaved, he huffed and he puffed, and he heaved so hard... the coupling broke! Thomas shot forward-- cocoa powder flew everywhere.
  • Thomas: Now I'll never get to take the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. After a long time, Thomas's freight cars were ready. The yard manager had release the brakes and Thomas chuffed carefully out of the yard. Finally the track turned left past the old church. Thomas arrived at the ice cream factory. He thought his job was nearly done, but he was wrong. The factory manager was waiting for him.
  • Factory Manager: The ice cream will soon be ready.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Factory Manager: You must take it to the seaside for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was very disappointed. He wished he could take children to the seaside instead. He wanted to hear them cheer when they saw the sea. Thomas puffed along the coast to the seaside.
  • Thomas: I wish I was taking the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Thomas. Percy was waiting at the seaside station and so were lots of children. They all cheered as Thomas pulled into the station. Thomas was surprised.
  • Thomas: Why are the children cheering?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Percy: They're cheering for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: They've been waiting for the ice cream!
  • Michael Brandon: The children were delighted to see Thomas and delighted to eat the ice cream. Thomas loved seeing the children laugh and cheer. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with the children.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Today you have worked extra hard.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a really useful engine.
  • Thomas: Delivering ice cream is a fun job after all.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. He was very happy.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Here's a picture of James puffing through the countryside. Let's color in the picture. Green first. What's green? James? No, James isn't green. What about the grass and the leaves on the trees? Yes, they're green. Blue next. What can we color in blue? James? No, James isn't blue. What about the sky? Yes, the sky is blue. What color shall we paint James? Red! That's right, James is a beautiful, bright red. What a lovely picture.
  • (Another puffing by sequnce happens and we begin A World Around You)
  • Children: (singing) Have a look about you, take in what you see There's a world around you wherever you may be Favourite names and places everywhere you go Sodor is our island, the only home we know Out of Henry's Tunnel or climbing Gordon's Hill Past the castle ruins toward the watermill We'll whistle past the lighthouse, gleaming red and white We'll leave the sheds at Tidmouth, then come back home at night Take a look about you, enjoy the world you see Be it town or country, there's such variety Old familiar faces everywhere you go Sodor is our island, the only home we know Have a look about you, take in what you see There's a world around you wherever you may be Favourite names and places everywhere you go Sodor is our island, the only home we know Sodor is our island, the only home we know Doo be doo be do bah Doo be doo be do bah Doo be doo be do bah.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin another learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Today, Thomas has to collect some timber from the new timber yard. It's the first time Thomas has been there. Toby is telling him the way. See if you can remember the way, too.
  • Toby: First,
  • Michael Brandon: Toby tells Thomas.
  • Toby: go along the seaside. Next, collect some water at the water tower. Then, puff through Wellsworth Station.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas is trying to remember all those places. Can you remember them? Along the seaside... collect some water at the water tower... and through Wellsworth Station.
  • Toby: Then,
  • Michael Brandon: Toby tells Thomas.
  • Toby: go under the stone bridge. Then follow the canal... until you arrive at the timber yard.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas is ready to leave. I hope you were listening; Thomas might need your help. Can you remember where he goes first? First, Thomas goes along the seaside. Can you remember what Thomas needs to do next? He needs to fill up with water. Now where does he go? Through Wellsworth Station. Now, was it under or over the stone bridge? Can you remember? Under the stone bridge. Then follow the canal. And at last, Thomas arrives at the new timber yard. Did you remember all those places? Thomas did. Well done, Thomas.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Percy and The Magic Carpet)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a windy day on the Island of Sodor. Trees were blown, leaves were scattered and Sir Topham Hatt's hat flew away! The engines were looking forward to the Annual Sodor Flower Show. At Tidmouth Sheds, Sir Topham Hatt had news of an important special delivery.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It must get to Maithwaite Station before the world famous opera singer Allicia Botti arrives.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed. Allicia Botti was coming to open the flower show. The engines were very excited. They all wanted to collect the special delivery. But Sir Topham Hatt gave the job to Percy. Percy was delighted. But after Sir Topham Hatt left, Gordon and James were sniffy.
  • Gordon: It can't be that special.
  • Michael Brandon: Boasted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Or Sir Topham Hatt would have sent me.
  • James: Or me.
  • Michael Brandon: Added James.
  • James: A red engine would be just the thing.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy wondered what the special delivery could be. He steamed out of Tidmouth as fast as he could. Percy arrived at Brendam Docks just as Cranky unloaded his special delivery. Percy was disappointed to see it was a roll of carpet.
  • Percy: What's so special about a carpet?
  • Michael Brandon: He wheezed gloomily.
  • Salty: Maybe it's a magic carpet, me hearty.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty.
  • Salty: I've heard tales of carpets that can fly. Do you know any magic words?
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty.
  • Percy: You mean like "please"?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Percy hopefully.
  • Salty: No, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Salty.
  • Salty: Other magic words like "hey, presto," "hocus pocus" and "abracadabra."
  • Michael Brandon: Cranky had lowered the carpet onto Percy's flatbed.
  • Percy: It doesn't look very magic.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Percy sadly. But as Percy puffed away, the carpet unrolled, as if by magic. Percy puffed as quickly as he could. He had to stop at a junction. Gordon was waiting there. When Gordon saw what Percy's special delivery was, he sniffed louder than ever.
  • Gordon: A carpet! No wonder Sir Topham Hatt gave the job to a small engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, the wind whistled and whirled and the carpet flew into the air.
  • Percy: Look.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy cried.
  • Percy: It is. It can fly!
  • Gordon: That's not magic.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's just the wind.
  • Michael Brandon: Murdoch passed by pulling a long train. And the carpet suddenly dropped onto one of his freight cars.
  • Percy: It is a magic carpet.
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: And it's going without me!
  • Michael Brandon: Percy chased after Murdoch.
  • Percy: Wait for me!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Percy: Please wait!
  • Michael Brandon: But Murdoch didn't hear Percy. Murdoch passed through Maron Station. James was taking on passengers.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: Murdoch has got my magic carpet!
  • James: There's no such thing as a magic carpet.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed James. Just then, the carpet lifted off Murdoch's freight car and glided onto Toby's roof.
  • Percy: See?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: It is magic. It can fly!
  • Michael Brandon: Percy raced after Toby. Until finally Toby pulled into Kellsthorpe Station. Percy pulled in as fast as he could.
  • Percy: Wait!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy. And Toby didn't move. But the carpet did. It flew off Toby and landed on the tracks.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: My magic carpet!
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon was even less impressed than before.
  • Gordon: Still trying to make your little job look important.
  • Michael Brandon: He grumbled. Then there was trouble. Thomas was coming, and he was on the same track as the carpet, so Percy and Gordon blew their whistles as loud as they could but Thomas couldn't stop in time.
  • Percy: I'll say a magic word.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: Hey, presto. Hocus pocus? Abracadabra?
  • Michael Brandon: But the carpet didn't move.
  • Percy: Please?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy hopefully. Suddenly the wind whistled and the carpet flapped. It lifted off the tracks and fluttered onto Percy's flatbed.
  • Gordon: It is magic.
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Gordon.
  • Percy: And I'm going to be late.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Percy. Percy's driver had tied the carpet down, and Percy steamed off as fast as he could. Percy puffed into Maithwaite Station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for him. Percy told him about the magic carpet.
  • Percy: It tried to get away.
  • Michael Brandon: He gasped.
  • Percy: And cause confusion and delay.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's no such thing as a magic carpet.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you, Percy, are on time and a really useful engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy felt very proud. Soon the carpet was unloaded and put into place. Gordon arrived with Allicia Botti. And the flower show was an enormous success. And even though Sir Topham Hatt had said the carpet wasn't magic, Percy and Gordon were not so sure.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and Engine Roll Call starts)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. Thomas - he's the cheeky one, James - is vain but lots of fun, Percy - pulls the mail on time, Gordon - thunders down the line, Emily - really knows her stuff, Henry - toots and huffs and puffs, Edward - wants to help and share, Toby - well let's say, he's square. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends. They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
  • (Following the last song, we find the Season 8-10 end credits with Thomas looking at the credits)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas Season 8-10 end theme plays)
  • (After that, the 2004 HiT Entertainment logo appears)
