  • (The Thomas Season 6 intro soon follows and we begin Trouble For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine wouldn't stop being a nuisances. Night after night, he kept the other engines awake.
  • Thomas: I'm tired of pushing coaches. I wanna see the world.
  • George Carlin: The other engines didn't take much notice, for Thomas was a little engine with a long tongue. But one night, Edward came to the shed. He was a kind little engine and felt sorry for Thomas.
  • Edward: I've got some freight cars to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, i'll push coaches in the yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: That would be nice.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Edward and Thomas asked their drivers, and when they said "yes", Thomas ran off happily to find freight cars. Now the freight cars were silly and noisy. They talked a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And i'm sorry to say they play tricks on an engine who is not used to them. Edward knew all about the freight cars. He warned Thomas to be careful but Thomas was too excited to listen. The shunter fastened the coupling and when the signal dropped, Thomas was ready. The conductor blew his whistle.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: Answered Thomas and started off. But the freight cars weren't ready.
  • Freight Cars: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Freight Cars: Wait, Thomas, wait!
  • George Carlin: But Thomas would't wait.
  • Thomas: Come on come on.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Freight Cars: All right, don't fuss! All right, don't fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the cars. Thomas began going faster and faster.
  • Thomas: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: He whistled, as he rush through Henry's tunnel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the cars grew crosser and crosser. At last Thomas slowed down as he came to Gordon's Hill.
  • (Thomas is at the top of Gordon's Hill, but is all exhausted)
  • Thomas' Driver: Steady, now, steady.
  • George Carlin: Warned the driver, as he reach the top. He began to put on the brakes.
  • Thomas: We're stopping, we're stopping!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Freight Cars: No, no, no!
  • George Carlin: Answered the cars bumping them to each other.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: Before the driver could stop them they had pushed Thomas down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind them. Poor Thomas tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast.
  • Thomas: Stop pushing, stop pushing!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. But the cars took no notice.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: They giggled in their silly way.
  • Thomas: There's the station! Oh dear, what shall I do?
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Thomas shut his eyes.
  • Thomas: I must stop!
  • (Thomas comes to a halt)
  • George Carlin: When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was...Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What are you doing here, Thomas?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I brought Edward's freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Thomas answered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why did you come so fast?
  • Thomas: I didn't mean to. I was pushed.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've got a lot to learn about freight cars, Thomas. After pushing them about here for a few weeks you'll know almost as much about them as Edward. Then you'll be a Really Useful Engine.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Terence The Tractor)
  • George Carlin: Autumn had come to the Island of Sodor. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth and an tractor was hard at work as Thomas puff along. Later Thomas saw the tractor close by.
  • Terence: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said the tractor.
  • Terence: I'm Terence, I'm plowing.
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas, I'm pulling a train. What ugly wheels you got.
  • Terence: They're not ugly, they're caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Said Terence.
  • Terence: I can go anywhere. I don't need rails.
  • Thomas: I don't want to go anywhere.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I like my rails, thank you.
  • George Carlin: Winter came with dark clouds full of snow.
  • Driver: I don't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us.
  • Thomas: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Soft stuff, nothing to it.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed on feeling cold but confident. They finished their journey safely but by now the country was covered.
  • Driver: You need your snowplough for the next journey, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Huh! Snow is silly soft stuff it won't stop me.
  • George Carlin: The snowplough was heavy and uncomfortable and made Thomas cross. He shook it and he banged it and when they got back it was so damaged that the driver had to take it off.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Thomas. Next morning, Thomas' driver and fireman came early and worked hard to mend the snowplough, but they couldn't make it fit. Thomas was pleased.
  • Thomas: I shan't have to wear it, I shan't have to wear it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Annie and Clarabel. But they were rather worried.
  • Annie and Clarabel: I hope it's all right, I hope it's all right.
  • George Carlin: They whispered to each other. The driver was worried too.
  • Driver: It's not bad here.
  • George Carlin: He said to the fireman.
  • Driver: But it's sure to be deep in the valley.
  • Thomas: Silly soft stuff.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I didn't need that stupid old thing yesterday and i shan't today. Snow can't stop me.
  • George Carlin: He rushed into a tunnel thinking how clever he was. But there was trouble ahead.
  • (Crash)
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm stuck.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Driver: Back, Thomas, back.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Thomas tried but his wheels spun and he couldn't move. The conductor went back for help while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slipped down until Thomas was nearly buried.
  • Thomas: Oh, my wheels and coupling rods. I shall have to stop here till I'm frozen. What a silly engine I am.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas began to cry. At last the bus came to rescue the passengers. And then who should come to Thomas's rescue but Terence. Snow never worries him.
  • (Terence hooks up to Clarabel and pulls her and Annie out of the snow)
  • George Carlin: He pulled the empty coaches away, then came back for Thomas. Thomas' wheels were clear but still spun when he tried to move. Terence tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged and at last dragged Thomas clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Terence goes away into the tunnel with Thomas following him)
  • Thomas: Oh, thank you, Terence. Your caterpillars are splendid.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Driver: I hope you'll be sensible now, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas and he puffed slowly away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Down The Mine)
  • George Carlin: One day, Thomas was at the junction when Gordon shuffled in with some freight cars.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • George Carlin: Remarked Thomas
  • Thomas: What a funny smell. Can you smell a smell?
  • Annie: I can't smell a smell.
  • George Carlin: Said Annie.
  • Thomas: A funny musty sort of smell.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Gordon: No one noticed until you did.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Gordon: It must be yours.
  • George Carlin: Not long ago, he had fallen into a dirty ditch. Thomas enjoyed teasing him about it.
  • Thomas: Annie, Clarabel, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater.
  • George Carlin: Before Gordon could answer, Thomas puffed away. Annie and Clarabel could hardly believe their ears.
  • Annie: He's dreadfully rude I feel quite ashamed.
  • Clarabel: I feel quite ashamed he's dreadfully rude.
  • George Carlin: And to Thomas they said.
  • Annie and Clarabel: You musn't be rude, you make us ashamed.
  • George Carlin: But Thomas didn't care a bit.
  • Thomas: That was funny, that was funny.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself. Annie and Clarabel were deeply shocked. They have great respect for Gordon The Big Engine. Thomas left the coaches at the station and went off to a mine for some cars. Long ago, miners digging there have made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars but not the weight of engines. A large notice warns them not to enter the area: Danger! Engines must not pass this board.
  • Thomas: Silly old board.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas. He had often tried to pass it but had never suceeded. But this morning he had made a plan. The fireman went to throw the switch.
  • Thomas: Now for my plan!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas. Bumping the cars fiercely he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding.
  • Thomas' Driver: Come back!
  • George Carlin: Yelled his driver.
  • (A loud splash is heard as Thomas falls to the mine)
  • Thomas: Fire and smoke!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm sunk.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Thomas: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Thomas: I am a silly engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: Please let me out. I wont do it again.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with the cranes. The ground's not firm enough. Hmm, let me see. I wonder if Gordon could pull you out.
  • Thomas: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas. But he didn't want to meet Gordon just yet.
  • Gordon: Down the mine is he? Ha! ha! ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Gordon.
  • Gordon: What a joke! Poop poop! Little Thomas, we'll have your out in a couple of puffs.
  • George Carlin: Strong cables were fastened between the two engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Are you ready? Heave!
  • (Gordon pulls Thomas out of the mine)
  • George Carlin: It was a lot harden than they all thought. At last Thomas was free.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Gordon: That's all right, Thomas. You made me laugh.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon.
  • Gordon: I'm in disgrace.
  • Thomas: So am I.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Gordon: Why so you are Thomas. Shall we form an alliance. You help me and I help you.
  • Thomas: Right you are.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Thomas.
  • Gordon: Good. That's settled.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon. And buffer to buffer the allies puffed home.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Comes To Breakfast)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine has worked his Branch Line for many years, and knows it very well.
  • (Thomas arrives at the station)
  • Thomas' Driver: You know just where to stop, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: You could almost manage it without you.
  • George Carlin: Thomas had become concided. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Thomas: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Percy: Don't be so daft.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Toby: I never go without my driver.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby earnestly.
  • Toby: I'd be frightened.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm not scared.
  • Toby: You never dare.
  • Thomas: I would then. You'll see.
  • George Carlin: The next day the firelighter came. Thomas drowzed comfortably as the warmth spread into his boiler. Percy and Toby were still asleep. Thomas suddenly remembered.
  • Thomas: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled.
  • Thomas: I'll show them! Driver says I can manage without him. I'll just go out and then I'll stop and "wheesh!" That'll make them jump.
  • George Carlin: Thomas thought he was being clever and really he was only moving because a careless cleaner had medal with his controls. He soon found his mistake. He tried to "wheesh!", but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare what it look what's coming next. There was the stationmaster's house! The stationmaster was about to have breakfast.
  • Thomas: Horrors!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas, and shut his eyes.
  • (Thomas crashes into the stationmaster's house)
  • George Carlin: The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Thomas had collected the bush on his travels. He peered into his room through his leaves. He couldn't speak. The stationmaster was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: You miserable engine!
  • George Carlin: She scolded.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I'll shall have to cook some more!
  • George Carlin: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time it fell on Thomas. Thomas felt depressed. Workmen propped out the house with strong poles and layed rails through the garden. Then, the scottish twin engines Donald and Douglas arrived.
  • Donald and Douglas: Dinna fash yourself, Thomas. We'll soon have you back on the rails.
  • George Carlin: They laughed.
  • (Donald and Douglas begin to rescue Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Donald and Douglas puffing hard manage to haul Thomas back to safety. Bits of fencing, the bush, and a broken window frame festooned was front, which was badly twisted. The twins laughed and left him. Thomas was indisgraced. There was worst to come.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're in a lot of trouble, Thomas.
  • Thomas: I know, Sir. I'm sorry, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Thomas' voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the works and have your worn parts mended. It will be a long job.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, a Diesel Rail-car will do your work.
  • Thomas: A d-d-d-diesel, sir?
  • George Carlin: Thomas spluttered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, Thomas. Diesels always stay in their sheds till they are wanted. Diesels never gallanting off to breakfast in Stationmasters' houses.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Missing Christmas Tree)
  • George Carlin: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were busy with the final preparations. Sir Topham Hatt wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Sir Topham Hatt was now waiting impatiently for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quickly now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Thomas. Duck can look after Annie and Clarabel until you get back.
  • Thomas: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Promised Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas as he set off on his important mission. Thomas collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Thomas: I mustn't be late.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt is relying on me.
  • George Carlin: Whistling bravely, Thomas tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Thomas was snowed under. Meanwhile the other engines waited and waited. They were grumbling about Thomas for being late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • George Carlin: The engines now felt sorry for Thomas and cold but confident the twins set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: Hush!
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: I can hear something.
  • Douglas: Probably the wind.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: No listen.
  • George Carlin: Insisted Donald.
  • Thomas: Over here!
  • Douglas: Oh, it's Thomas. Come on the poor wee engine must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • George Carlin: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Thomas' driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Thomas and the precious christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Sir Topham Hatt greeted them warmly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • George Carlin: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: One, two, three!
  • George Carlin: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ladies and gentlemen and children, i give you three cheers for Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends who had made this ocasion possible.
  • George Carlin: Then there was a familiar whirring sound. Percy and Toby smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Harold the Helicopter touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Santa Claus. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Thomas: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Thomas to Percy.
  • Thomas: But it was worth it for this party. Happy holidays, Percy. Happy holidays, everyone.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Gets Bumped)
  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Thomas the Tank Engine puffs along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Thomas coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Thomas was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Percy the Green Engine was waiting, too.
  • Percy: Hurry up, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Called Percy when the signal dropped.
  • Percy: If you're late, Sir Topham Hatt might get a new engine to replace you.
  • Thomas: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas, but he was worried. Next day, Thomas hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Thomas saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Thomas: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Thomas, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Thomas' driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Thomas waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Bertie was waiting to take them home. When Thomas finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Sir Topham Hatt might be cross with him.
  • Percy: I warned Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy to James.
  • Percy: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Thomas pick up his passengers, Sir Topham Hatt was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Thomas looks around and finds nothing)
  • Thomas: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas. Thomas knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Thomas' Driver: Careful, Thomas!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Thomas falls off the rails)
  • Thomas' Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Thomas: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Thomas had to shunt freight cars in the yard. Bertie came to see him.
  • Bertie: I understand you need my help again.
  • Thomas: Yes, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Bertie set off to collect Thomas' passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Bertie drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Thomas felt miserable.
  • Thomas: I've lost my passengers to Bertie. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Bertie can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Thomas reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Bertie is a good bus, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Thomas spoke to Bertie.
  • Thomas: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Bertie: That's all right, Thomas. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Thomas: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And always will be.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Trust Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was feeling bright and cheerful. It was a splendid day.
  • Thomas: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: He whistled to some cows, but the cows didn't reply.
  • Thomas: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They're busy with their breakfast.
  • George Carlin: Next he saw Bertie.
  • Thomas: Hello, Bertie. Care for a race today?
  • George Carlin: But all Bertie could say was...
  • Bertie: Ouch! That's another hole in the road!
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Thomas. Thomas was still in good spirits when Bertie arrived at the next station.
  • Thomas: Bad luck, Bertie. Now if you're a steam engine, you would run a repair on reliable rails.
  • Bertie: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: The railway was suppose to deliver the tar to mend the road two weeks ago. You can't trust a thing that runs on rails.
  • Thomas: I run on rails. You can trust me, Bertie. I'll see if I can find out what's happened.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas puffed away towards the big station. James was snorting about in the yard.
  • James: It's too bad!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • James: Percy goes to work at the harbour and I do his job, here, there and everywhere! Take that!
  • Freight Cars: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Just you wait, we'll show you!
  • George Carlin: Gordon laughed.
  • Gordon: I'll tell you what, James. If you pretended to be ill everywhere, you couldn't freight cars here, or go to the quarry there, could you?
  • James: What a good idea.
  • George Carlin: Agreed James.
  • James: Look, here comes Thomas. I'll start pretending now
  • George Carlin: Thomas was sorry to see the engines looking miserable
  • Thomas: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Thomas: It's a beautiful day.
  • Gordon: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon
  • Gordon: But not for James.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: He's sick.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon.
  • James: Yes he is. I mean I am.
  • George Carlin: Stuttered James.
  • James: I don't feel well at all.
  • Thomas: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas kindly.
  • Thomas: I'll help out if you're ill.
  • George Carlin: Gordon and James sniggered quietly to each other. Some of James' cars were coupled behind Thomas and he steamed away to the quarry. The cars were still cross.
  • Freight Cars: We couldn't pay James back for bumping us, so we'll play tricks on Thomas instead. One engine is as good as another.
  • George Carlin: But Thomas didn't hear them. He collected all the stone from the quarry and set off back to the junction. Danger lay ahead.
  • Freight Cars: Now for our plan!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the cars.
  • Freight Cars: Go faster, go faster!
  • George Carlin: They pushed Thomas over the switches.
  • Thomas' Driver: Slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas' driver and applied the brakes.
  • (Thomas hits the buffers, and a log snaps apart, sending him floating into another set of buffers)
  • George Carlin: Poor Thomas stood dazed and surprised in the muddy pool, as a toad eyed in suspiciously.
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Thomas.
  • Thomas: The day started so well too.
  • George Carlin: Duck pulled away the cars, and Edward helped Thomas back to the junction. Suddenly, Thomas remembered the missing tar. He told Edward all about him.
  • Edward: That's strange.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: A car full of tar been left in my station. That must be it. Driver will make sure it gets to Bertie now.
  • George Carlin: Later, James spoke to Thomas.
  • James: I'm sorry about your accident.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • James: And so is Gordon. We didn't mean to get you into trouble.
  • Gordon: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: A near misunderstanding, Thomas, all's well that ends well.
  • George Carlin: Just then Bertie arrived. He looked much more cheerful.
  • Bertie: My road's being mended now.
  • Thomas: Oh, I am glad.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Bertie: Thanks for all you did.
  • George Carlin: Added Bertie.
  • Bertie: Now I know I can trust an engine especially his name was Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Gordon and James puffed silently away to the shed, but Thomas still had company.
  • Thomas: Well, well.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Thomas: What a day for surprises.
  • George Carlin: The toad who was looking forward to arrive home noisly agreed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Special Letter)
  • George Carlin: One evening, Thomas brought his last train to the junction. Percy was glad to see him.
  • Percy: Are you on your way to the big station, Thomas?
  • Thomas: Yes I am. Why?
  • Percy: Because I'm going there too.
  • Thomas: I think something's up.
  • George Carlin: Toby looked up in the sky.
  • Toby: Where?
  • Thomas: Not up there, down here.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Thomas.
  • Toby: How come something be up when it's down?
  • George Carlin: Thomas was too excited to explain.
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers! Look over there!
  • George Carlin: Mavis, BoCo, Bill, Ben, Donald, Oliver and Douglas paraded past.
  • Donald: Good evening, you three.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Donald.
  • Donald: Aren't we all a fine sight?
  • Toby: Very splendid indeed.
  • George Carlin: Admired Toby.
  • Donald: Sorry we can't stop. Sir Topham Hatt wants us all together at the station.
  • Thomas: What is this about?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Driver: Sir Topham Hatt has a plan.
  • George Carlin: Answered his driver.
  • Driver: Come on.
  • George Carlin: So they followed the other engines to the big station at the end of the line.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • George Carlin: Called Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have an important letter to read from a little girl who is five years old. Dear Thomas and all the engines, please can I meet you? My friends say they would like to meet you too. You can come to my house for tea, but my mummy says there aren't any railway tracks in my house. Can you come to the station instead? Thank you very much. It seems...
  • George Carlin: Continued Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...that there any many girls and boys who would like to meet you. Therefore, we are all going to the big city faraway.
  • Engines: Hooray! Hooray!
  • George Carlin: The engines whistled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence! Other engines will be working here while you were away so please show them what to do.
  • George Carlin: As Annie and Clarabel are going to the big city, Thomas and Oliver practice with some other coaches. Thomas grew more and more excited. Too excited for his own good.
  • Thomas: I'm glad I'm a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt thinks I'm really useful engine. I had a race with Bertie once. I whooshed through the tunnel and stopped in inch from the buffers.
  • George Carlin: Then Thomas made his mistake.
  • Thomas: Just like this!
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • (Thomas bursts into the buffers, hits through a fence, rolls down a slope and smashes into a wall)
  • George Carlin: No one was hurt, but Thomas' front was badly bent. They telephoned to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll send up the workmen.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But if they can't mend Thomas in time, we'll have to go to the big city without him.
  • George Carlin: Poor Thomas. 8:00 next morning, the engines waited at the junction. Toby and Percy reached on the truck, and Duck had pushed them into place behind Edward. Gordon, James and Henry are ready to lead off. They whistled impatiently. Sir Topham Hatt looked at his watch.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll wait one more minute for Thomas and then we have to go.
  • Thomas: Oh, thank goodness you're still here.
  • George Carlin: Panted Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: I hope we're not late as it's just after eight.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew his whistle and waved his flag. The engines cheered.
  • Engines: Look out, big city, here we come!
  • George Carlin: And the cavalcade puffed away. Later at the big city, all the engines were lined up in their splendid shed. Children were delighted to meet their friends.
  • Thomas: I'm glad the little girl wrote to us.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Thomas to Percy.
  • Thomas: Isn't it wonderful what happiness a letter can bring?
  • (Another nameplate 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 nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Jet Engine)
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon is a very proud steam engine. He's the fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. He loves speeding along his line with the wind blowing across his funnel.
  • Gordon's Driver: You've broken the record again.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: I'm the fastest!
  • Alec Baldwin: Boasted Gordon. But not all the engines were impressed.
  • James: Speed isn't everything.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James smugly.
  • Thomas: But being reliable and useful is.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Gordon: You slow engines will never understand.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Because you'll never go as fast as me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived with news of a special for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to collect the jet engine and take it to the airfield.
  • Percy: What's a jet engine?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A jet engine goes forward by pushing hot air out of its back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt explained.
  • Thomas: Just like you blow up a balloon and let it go.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's very fast.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas likes making special deliveries for Sir Topham Hatt. It makes him feel special. But secretly, he wished he could go as fast as Gordon, just once. Thomas arrived at the docks, excited to see the jet engine. It was shiny and modern and Thomas had never seen anything like it. He couldn't wait to start his journey, but Cranky was taking his time.
  • Thomas: Hurry up!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: This is a special special.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky did not like being told what to do especially by an engine. He became so cranky, that he was careless with his hook. His hook knocked the switch and the switch started the jet engine and the engine began to wind. The wind got louder and louder and louder.
  • Cranky: Uh, oh.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Cranky. Before he could say anything else, the jet engine was rocketing Thomas up the track.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. The driver tried to put on the brakes, but Thomas couldn't stop.
  • Thomas: Whoa boy!
  • Alec Baldwin: The stationmaster called ahead.
  • Signalman: Clear the lines, it's a runaway train!
  • Alec Baldwin: Signals were changed and points were switched. Thomas had never been so exciting. Thomas flew by James and rocketed past Henry and raced by Percy. They were amazed. Bertie was excited when he saw Thomas flying down the track.
  • Bertie: Want a race, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Beeped Bertie.
  • Bertie: Ah, never mind.
  • Alec Baldwin: No one had ever seen an engine go so fast. Gordon had no idea that Thomas racing along the main line.
  • Gordon: I am the fastest.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon proudly.
  • Thomas: Hi, Gordon. Bye Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon could not believe what he had seen. At last, the jet engine ran out of fuel and Thomas was back under his own power. He steamed gently back into Knapford Station.
  • Thomas: Sorry for overtaking you back there, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Gordon: Overtake me? I didn't notice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed.
  • Henry: You didn't notice the fastest engine on the Island of Sodor?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Thomas: Yes, I am the fastest.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas. Percy felt a little sorry for Gordon.
  • Percy: Gordon doesn't have to go as fast as a jet engine. He's a steam engine.
  • James: But he's still full of hot air.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled James and Gordon wheeshed away.
