  • George Carlin: Every day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the station to catch his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello.
  • George Carlin: He always said to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't let the silly freight cars tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: There were lots of freight cars and Thomas worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • George Carlin: He told Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and freight cars.
  • George Carlin: One day, Thomas was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an engine whistling.
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The engine was James and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • James: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the freight cars. Still whistling...
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Poor James disappeared.
  • Thomas: I like to teach those freight cars a lesson.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas the Tank Engine.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • George Carlin: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: James is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was coupled on and off they went. Thomas worked his hardest.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He wasn't predenting to be like Gordon. He really meant it.
  • Thomas: Bother those freight cars and their tricks. I hope poor James isn't hurt.
  • George Carlin: James' driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • James' Driver and Fireman: Never mind James.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • James' Driver and Fireman: It was those silly freight cars and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • George Carlin: Thomas pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Thomas: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Thomas: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • George Carlin: He told the freight cars. And they answered...
  • Freight Cars: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • George Carlin: They left the broken cars. Then with two cranes they put James back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift James away from the field. A surprised Thomas watches as James is put back to the rails)
  • George Carlin: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Thomas helped him back to the shed. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I heard all about it and i'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful engine. James shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Thomas: Oh thank you sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas. Now Thomas is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Annie and Clarabel. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Edward and Henry stop quite often and tell him the news. Gordon is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Gordon: Boop Boop.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas always whistles...
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: In return.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (A nameplate sequence happens and we begin Thomas and Bertie's Great Race)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was waiting at the junction when the bus arrives.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Who are you?
  • Bertie: I'm Bertie. Who are you?
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas. I run this branch line.
  • Bertie: So you're Thomas. Ah, I remembered now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Terence the Tractor pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today.
  • Thomas: Help me?
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I can go faster than you.
  • Bertie: You can't.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Thomas: I can.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Bertie: I'll race you!
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie. Their drivers agreed for the race going ahead. The stationmaster said...
  • Stationmaster: Are you ready? Go!
  • George Carlin: Thomas never could go fast at first and Bertie drew in front.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Why don't you go fast, why don't you go fast.
  • George Carlin: Called Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Wait and see, wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Hissed Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: He's a long way ahead.
  • George Carlin: They wailed. But Thomas didn't mind. He remembered the level crossing. There was Bertie fuming at the gates while they sail gaily through.
  • Thomas: Goodbye, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. After that the road left the railway so that they couldn't see Bertie. Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Quicky please!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas and off they went again.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We're coming along, we're coming along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas, then he looked ahead. There was Bertie tooting triumphly on his horn.
  • Thomas: Oh deary me, oh deary me!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Thomas.
  • Driver: Steady, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll beat Bertie yet.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We'll be Bertie yet, we'll beat Bertie yet.
  • George Carlin: Echoed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: We'll do it, we'll do it.
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Oh bother! There's the station.
  • George Carlin: Then he heard Bertie.
  • Bertie: Goodbye, Thomas. You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We buses have to work here you know. Goodbye.
  • Thomas: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: We've lost.
  • George Carlin: But he felt better after a drink. The signal dropped.
  • Thomas: Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient...
  • Bertie: Honk honk!
  • George Carlin: There was Bertie waiting at the traffic lights. he started with a roar and chased on after Thomas once again. Now Thomas reached his full speed. Bertie tried hard but Thomas was too fast. Whistling triumphantly he plunged into the tunnel leaving Bertie toiling far behind.
  • Thomas: We've done it, we've done it!
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Annie and Clarabel as they whooshed into the last station. Everyone was there to celebrate Thomas' victory. But they gave Bertie a big welcome too.
  • Bertie: Well done, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, i should have to grow wings and be an airplane.
  • George Carlin: They now kept each others very busy. They often talked about their race, but Bertie's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in the frying pan, and Sir Topham Hatt has warned Thomas not to race at dangerous speeds. So although, between you and me, they would like to have another race. I don't think they ever will, do you?
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Donald's Duck)
  • George Carlin: Duck the Great Western engine works hard in the yard at the big station. Sometimes, he pulled coaches. Sometimes he pushed freight cars. But whatever the work, Duck got the job done without fuss. One day, Duck was resting in the shed when Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your work in the yard had been good. Would you like to have a branch line to your own.
  • Duck: Yes please, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck. So Duck took charge of his new branch line. The responsibility delighted him. The line runs along a coast by sandy beaches till it meets a port were big ships come in. Duck enjoyed exploring every curve and corner of the line. Sea breezes swirled his smoke high into the air and his green paint glistened in the sunlight.
  • Duck: This is just like being on holiday.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Driver: Well you know what they say.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: A change is as good as a rest.
  • George Carlin: Soon, Duck was busier than ever. Sir Topham Hatt was building a new station at the port. Duck pulled the heavy freight cars whenever they were needed. Bertie looked after Duck's passengers and the other engines helped too. But the work took a long time. Noise and dust filled the air.
  • Toby: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Toby.
  • Toby: The station is nearly finished.
  • Duck: And on time, too.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck thankfully. Duck felt his responsibility deeply and talked endlessly about it.
  • Duck: You don't understand, Donald, how much Sir Topham Hatt relies on me.
  • Donald: Och aye.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Donald sleeply.
  • Duck: I'm great western and i...
  • Donald: Quack, quack, quack.
  • Duck: What?
  • Donald: You heard. Quack, quack you go. Sounds like you had an egg layed. Now wheesh and let an engine sleep.
  • Duck: Quack yourself!
  • George Carlin: Said Duck indignantly. Later, he spoke to his driver.
  • Duck: Donald says I quack, as if I laid an egg.
  • Fireman: Quack do you?
  • George Carlin: Pondered his fireman. He whispered something to Duck and his driver. They were going to play a joke on Donald and pay him back for teasing Duck. The engines were busy for the rest of the day and nothing more was said. Not even a quack. But when at last, Donald was asleep, Duck's driver and fireman popped something into his water tank. Next morning when Donald for water, he found that he had an unexpected passenger aboard. A small white duckling popped out of his water tank.
  • Donald: Now look who's behind this.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Donald. The duckling was tamed, she shared the fireman's sandwiches and rode in the tender. The other engines enjoyed teasing Donald about her. Presently, she grew tired of travelling and hopped off to the station and there she stayed. That night, Donald's driver and fireman got busy and in the morning when Duck's crew arrived to look him over they laughed and laughed.
  • Driver: Look, Duck. Look what's under your bunker. It's a nest box with an egg in it.
  • George Carlin: Donald opened a sleepy eye.
  • Donald: Well, well, well. You must've laid it in the night, Duck. All are for yours.
  • George Carlin: Then Duck laughed too.
  • Duck: You win, Donald. It did take a clever engine to get the better of you.
  • George Carlin: There's a pond near the duckling station. Here she often swims and welcomes the trains as they passed by. The stationmaster calls her Dilly. But to everyone else, she is always Donald's Duck.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Duck Takes Charge)
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Gordon: What?
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • Gordon: Silly!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger engine to help me.
  • James: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Any engine could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • George Carlin: Percy went off to get some coaches.
  • Percy: That stupid old signal.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Percy: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little engine and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look tired.
  • Percy: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my dome or on my wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look the right way up to me.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up. The new engine is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Thomas and Toby will help too.
  • Percy: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: The new engine arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Duck: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Duck. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Duck better than Montague.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Duck it shall be. Here, Percy, show Duck around.
  • George Carlin: The two engines went off together. Soon they were very busy. James, Gordon and Henry watched Duck quietly doing his work.
  • Henry: He seems a simple sort of engine.
  • James: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Henry, Gordon, James: Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Smoke billowed everywhere. Percy was cross, but Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes they do.
  • George Carlin: Answered Percy.
  • Duck: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He whispered something.
  • Duck: We'll do it later.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Wheesh! (snorting)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He said and hurried to the yard. Duck and Percy calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the engines in. Gordon, James and Henry were furious.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Bellowed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: They won't let us in!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck, explain this behavior.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western engine. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Percy and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, engines that we only take orders from you.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quiet!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy and Duck, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • George Carlin: Gordon, Henry and James sniggered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As for you.
  • George Carlin: Thundered Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Duck is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • George Carlin: After Percy went away, Duck was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin A Close Shave For Duck)
  • George Carlin: Duck the Great Western Engine puffed sadly to Edward's station.
  • Duck: It's not fair.
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duck: Diesel has been telling lies about me and made Sir Topham Hatt and all the engines think I'm horrid.
  • George Carlin: Edward smiled.
  • Edward: I know you weren't, and so does Sir Topham Hatt. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these cars?
  • George Carlin: Duck felt happier with Edward, and set to work at once. The cars were silly, heavy and noisy. The two engines have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Duck: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Duck, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Duck love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Duck: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Freight Cars: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Roared the cars.
  • Freight Cars: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Duck's Driver: Hurry, Duck, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. They raced through Edward's station, but the cars were catching up.
  • Duck's Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • George Carlin: The driver was gaining control.
  • Duck's Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • George Carlin: James was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Duck's Driver: It's up to you now, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Cried the driver. Duck put every ounce of wait and steam against the cars.
  • Duck: It's too late!
  • George Carlin: Duck groaned. He veered into a siding where a barber had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The silly cars were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the cars didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Duck.
  • Duck: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Barber: No I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • George Carlin: And he lathered Duck's face all other. Poor Duck! Thomas was helping to pull the cars away when Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Barber: I do not like engines popping through my walls.
  • George Carlin: Fumed the barber.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I appreciate your feelings.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you must know that this engine and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Barber: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: Oh! Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: He filled the basin of water to wash Duck's face.
  • Barber: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave engine.
  • Duck: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were very brave indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm proud of you.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Duck: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Of course.
  • Duck: But, sir, they don't like me. They like Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not now. I never believed Diesel, so I sent him packing. The engines were sorry and want you back.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • George Carlin: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Duck the Great Western Engine.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Toby's Tightrope)
  • George Carlin: One day, Percy arrived in a quarry to collect some stone for his freight cars. Snow and frost lay everywhere. There was not a sound to be heard. Percy ventured furthur. He found Mavis the new diesel engine resting in the shelter of some rocks.
  • Percy: Cheer up, Mavis.
  • George Carlin: He whistled. Mavis was still remembering the trouble she had with cars.
  • Mavis: Manager says I don't listen for his advice. He says i'd no business chortling down Toby's line. Toby's a fusspot.
  • Percy: Toby has forgotten all about freight cars than you'll ever known.
  • George Carlin: Replied Percy.
  • Percy: You must put the cars where he wants them, then you'll be a really useful engine. Now if you excuse me, I have to take these stones to the harbour.
  • George Carlin: Mavis likes Percy but she still wouldn't to his advice.
  • Mavis: Why shouldn't i go on Toby's line.
  • George Carlin: The siding arrangements are awkward. The put the cars where Toby wanted them, Mavis had to make several journeys. She started making a plan.
  • Mavis: If we used the key stood on Toby's line.
  • George Carlin: She said to her driver.
  • Mavis: We would save all was bother.
  • George Carlin: Her driver suspecting nothing allow them to go as far as the level crossing. A few days later, the weather changed. As the soon melted, the quarry grew busy again. Some trains were so long that before leaving the cars for Toby, Mavis had to go beyond the level crossing with them. Now for her plan. She would go further down the line without it seeming her fault.
  • Mavis: Can you keep a secret?
  • George Carlin: She asked the freight cars.
  • Cars: Yes, yes, yes!
  • George Carlin: They chattered.
  • Mavis: Will you bump me at the level crossing and tell no one I ask you?
  • George Carlin: The cars promised. But while Mavis was away, Toby arrived. He decided to shunt the cars himself. The cars decided to bump him anyway. They reached the level crossing and Toby's brakes came on. This was the signal for the freight cars.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Toby was away. With the cars screaming and yelling behind him. No one realize that melted snow had turned a stream ahead into a torrent and the bridge above it was about to collapse. The rails were now like a tightrope against the thundering water.
  • Toby: Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby. His driver thought for control. They came nearer and nearer by the bridge. It was all of nothing now. The driver breaked hard. Toby stopped still on the rails but with his wheels shredding the tightrope over the abyss. Mavis was horrified and quickly came to the rescue. Workmen anchored Toby with ropes while she pulled the freight cars away. Then, she helped Toby to safety.
  • Mavis: I'm sorry about the cars.
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: I can't think how you manage to stop them in time.
  • Toby: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: My driver told me about circus people who walked tightropes, but I just didn't fancy doing it myself.
  • George Carlin: Later, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A very smart piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Mavis, you did well too I hear.
  • Mavis: It was my fault about those cars, sir.
  • George Carlin: She faulted.
  • Mavis: But if I could...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Could what?
  • Mavis: Come down the line sometimes, Sir? Toby says he'll show me what to do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If your manager agrees.
  • George Carlin: And so it was arranged. Now Mavis is as happy as can be, and Sir Topham Hatt thinks she's really useful indeed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Toby The Tram Engine)
  • George Carlin: Toby is a tram engine. He has cowcatchers and side plates and doesn't look like a steam engine at all. He takes from farms and villages to the main line and is cheerful to everyone he meets. He has a coach called Henrietta who has seen better days.
  • Henrietta: It's not fair at all.
  • George Carlin: She grumbles remembering she used to be full and nine cars would rattle behind her. Now there were only 3 or four for the farms and factories send their goods mostly by truck. Toby is always careful. The cars, buses and trucks often had accidents. Toby hasn't had an accident for years. But the buses are crowded and Henrietta is empty.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • George Carlin: A lady and a stout gentleman stood on Toby's platform. He was of course Sir Topham Hatt. But Toby didn't noticed yet.
  • Children: Come on, grandfather.
  • George Carlin: Cried the children.
  • Children: Do look at this engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a tram engine, Stephen.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Bridget: Is it electric?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bridget.
  • Toby: Whoosh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Toby.
  • Stephen: Shh!
  • George Carlin: Said her brother.
  • Stephen: You've offended him.
  • Bridget: But trams are electric, aren't they?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They are mostly, and this is a steam tram.
  • Children: May we go in it, grandfather, please?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt to the conductor. They all scrambled into Henrietta.
  • Henrietta: Hip-hip hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Henrietta. But Toby didn't sing.
  • Toby: Electric indeed! Electric indeed!
  • George Carlin: He snorted. He was proud of being a steam tram.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What is your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Toby: Toby, sir.
  • George Carlin: Thank you, Toby, for a very nice ride.
  • Toby: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby. He felt better now.
  • Toby: This gentleman...
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Toby: ...is a gentleman who knows how to speak to engines.
  • George Carlin: The children came every day for two weeks. Sometimes they rode with the conductor, sometimes in empty cars. On the last day of all the driver invited them into his cab. All were sorry when they had to go away and Sir Topham Hatt and his family thanked everyone.
  • Toby: Come again soon.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Children: We will, we will.
  • George Carlin: Called the children. And they waved till Toby was out of sight. The months passed. Toby had few cars and fewer passengers.
  • Driver: Our last day, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver one morning.
  • Driver: The manager says we must close tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: That day, everyone will have a chance of a last ride. The passengers joked and sang, but Toby and his driver wish they wouldn't.
  • Passengers: Goodbye, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers afterwards.
  • Passengers: We're sorry your line was closing down.
  • Toby: So am I.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Toby.
  • Toby: Nobody wants me.
  • George Carlin: Toby thought and went unhappily to sleep. Next morning, the shed was flung open and old Toby woke with a start to his driver waving a piece of paper at him.
  • Driver: Wake up, Toby!
  • George Carlin: He shouted excitely.
  • Driver: The mail has just arrived and there's a letter for us from the stout gentleman! Maybe it's good news.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Edward's Exploit)
  • George Carlin: Bertie the Bus was giving some visitors the tour on the Island of Sodor. It was their last afternoon, and Edward was preparing to take them to meet Bill and Ben. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Henry: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • James: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked James.
  • Gordon: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Gordon: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Duck.
  • Duck: You're all jealous. Edward's better than any of you.
  • BoCo: You're right, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: Edward's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Edward: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward, as he finally puffed out of the station. Bill and Ben were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special. Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Edward took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Edward. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Edward's wheels slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Edward?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned engine. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Edward: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Edward. Edward puffed and pulled his hardest. But his wheels kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Edward. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with freight cars.
  • Edward: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Edward: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Edward's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearly, but unbeaten, Edward steamed in. Henry was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Edward, his driver and fireman. Duck and BoCo saw to it that Edward was left in peace. Gordon and James remain respectfully silent.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Percy's Predicament)
  • George Carlin: Daisy the Diesel Rail-car's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened to bulls and cows, and she remain very lazy and scuttled. One day, Toby brought Henrietta to the station where Percy was grumbling shunting.
  • Toby: Hello, Percy. I see Daisy's left the milk behind again.
  • Percy: I had to make a special journey within i suppose. Anyone would think i've nothing to do.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Percy.
  • Toby: Tell you what?
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Toby: I'll take the milk, you fetch my freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Percy had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the freight cars about.
  • Percy: Hurry along.
  • George Carlin: He said. The freight cars grumbled to each other.
  • Cars: This is Toby's place! Percy's got no right to poke his funnel in here and push us around.
  • George Carlin: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Cars: Pay Percy back! Pay Percy back!
  • Percy: Come along.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy.
  • Percy: No nonsense.
  • Cars: We'll give him nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Giggled the freight cars. But they followed so quietly that Percy thought they were under control. Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead: All Trains Stop To Pin Down Brakes.
  • Percy: Peep peep! Brakes, Conductor, please!
  • George Carlin: But before he could check them the freight cars surged ahead.
  • Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Percy: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag but was too late to switch Percy to the runaway sidings. Frantically trying to grip the rails Percy slid into the yard.
  • Percy: Peep! Peep! Look out!
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The break van was in smithereens. Percy's driver and fireman had jumped clear but Percy was stranded. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. Toby and Daisy had helped to clear the wreckage but Percy remained on his perch of freight cars.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We must now try.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: To run a branch line with Toby and a diesel. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Percy.
  • Percy: I am sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must stay here till we are ready.
  • George Carlin: Continued Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And you really must be more careful with freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Percy sighed. The freight cars groaned beneath his wheels. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Daisy too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My engines work hard. I send lazy engines away.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was ashamed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: However, Toby says you worked hard after Percy's accident. So you shall have another chance.
  • Daisy: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: I will work hard. Toby says he'll help me.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Excellent. What Toby doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. But our Toby's an experienced engine.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas came back, and Percy was sent to be mended. Annie and Clarabel were delighted to see Thomas again and he took them to a run at once. All were now friends, and Toby has taunt Daisy a great deal. She shooed a cow the other day all by herself. That show's you, doesn't it?
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin James Goes Buzz Buzz)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine was enjoying his work in Vicarage Orchard. Birds were singing and apples were brightening on the trees. It was a lovely day.
  • James: Hello Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Trevor: Oh i am.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • James: What's that noise?
  • Trevor: It's the bees.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Trevor.
  • Trevor: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • George Carlin: Just then, BoCo the diesel engine hummed in.
  • BoCo: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • George Carlin: James didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • BoCo: Goodbye, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Called BoCo and set off to see Duck at the next station. Bill and Ben the tank engine twins were busy arranging cars. But they scampered off when they saw BoCo.
  • BoCo: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed BoCo.
  • BoCo: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Edward soon put a stop in their games.
  • Duck: Edward is the only one who can keep Bill and Ben in order.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • BoCo: A good name.
  • George Carlin: Replied BoCo.
  • BoCo: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • George Carlin: James bustled in.
  • James: What's that, Duck? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Duck: His name is BoCo, and he didn't. We...
  • James: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Duck: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Duck. The next morning, James arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • George Carlin: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. James heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to James. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • James: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: The bee thought James had burnt him on purpose. So it stung James right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • James: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to James' warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • George Carlin: James' reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for James. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • George Carlin: Later that evening, James was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you James the Red-Nosed Engine.
  • George Carlin: Everyone laughed even James. But instead, they decided to call James "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Percy's Ghostly Trick)
  • (Owl hooting)
  • (Ghostly whistle blows)
  • Percy: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Thomas: Percy what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Thomas and Toby: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas and Toby.
  • Percy: He didn't say, oh it makes my wheels wobble to think of it.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're just a silly little engine. I'm not scared.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Percy: Thomas didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Percy's Driver: Neither do i. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Percy was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour.
  • (Percy's whistle toots, owl hoots)
  • George Carlin: Percy knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now. (Whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and a loud crash is heard as he hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Percy broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Percy's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Percy, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Percy chuckled.
  • Percy: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Thomas. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little engine.
  • George Carlin: Toby promised to help.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Toby: Percy's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby.
  • Thomas: Poor engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Toby: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Thomas: Out with it, Toby, I can't wait all evening.
  • Toby: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: It looked like Percy's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Thomas: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Toby. I'll take care of you.
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • Percy: Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Toby: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Percy: I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: It was morning when Thomas returned.
  • Toby: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I knew you be sad about Percy, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (Percy's whistle toots)
  • (Ghostly whistle)
  • Thomas: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Percy was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Percy: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Toby: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Toby.
  • Toby: ...that our Thomas was just seen a ghost!
  • (We see the Thomas end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While the end credits roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
