Transcript

  • (We open this DVD with 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.
  • (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! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (Then, a wheesh of steam appears 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?
  • (An engine puffing by sequence happens and we begin Hooray For Thomas)
  • Michael Brandon: It was an exciting day on the Island of Sodor.
  • Harold: Good morning!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Harold. Annie and Clarabel were full of happy children. Thomas was taking them to their annual sports day. Everything was ready for the day to begin.
  • Boy: I do hope i'm Number 1 and win a medal.
  • Michael Brandon: Said a boy.
  • Thomas: It must be splendid to win a medal.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: After all I'm engine Number 1.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas worked hard all afternoon. But he couldn't stop thinking about medals. He imagined himself wearing a gold medal on a bright red ribbon. How smart he would look.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: I'm taking Sir Topham Hatt to sports day.
  • Thomas: You can see the egg and spoon race.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Percy: I didn't know eggs and spoons had races.
  • Bertie: A children race with eggs on spoon.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Bertie.
  • Thomas: And the winner gets a medal. I wish i could have a medal.
  • Percy: You need to win a race first.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Percy.
  • Bertie: I'll race you, Thomas. The first one to the station is the winner.
  • Thomas: You're on!
  • Michael Brandon: Called Thomas.
  • Bertie: Ready, steady, go!
  • Thomas: Better hurry, Bertie.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Thomas. Then, Thomas had to stop to pick up some passengers.
  • Bertie: Better hurry, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Bertie as he rattled over the bridge. Then, Bertie had to stop at the level crossing.
  • Thomas: Last one there puffs hot air.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Thomas. Thomas was nearly at the station. As he drew near the plane field, a signalman flagged him down. Now Thomas was really cross. Bertie was sure to win. Then he saw Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, the sports day medals have been left in my office. You must fetch them at once. We can't let the children down.
  • Thomas: Of course not, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas and he chuffed away. Meanwhile, Bertie had raced into the station.
  • Bertie: I won!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Bertie.
  • Bertie: I won!
  • Michael Brandon: And he waited eagerly for Thomas. He waited and waited. But Thomas had forgotten about the race. He was thinking about the children.
  • Thomas: I can't let them down, i can't let them down.
  • Michael Brandon: At last, Thomas puffed back into the big station. The stationmaster gave Thomas' driver the box of medals. Then, Thomas set off again. He arrived just in time.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Panted Thomas. Sir Topham Hatt presented the medals to the winners.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Congratulations.
  • Children: Thank you sir.
  • Michael Brandon: The next day, Bertie and the medal winner arrived with a surprise for Thomas. A small boy presented him with a gold medal on a red ribbon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were very helpful at sports day.
  • Boy: So we thought you should have a medal of your own.
  • Michael Brandon: Added the boy.
  • Thomas: My very own medal.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • Children: Three cheers for Thomas the Number 1 engine. Hip, hip, hooray.
  • Bertie: But I still won the race.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Bertie. Thomas just peeped happily.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Steam Roller)
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel is very proud of his big sturdy wheels. They have brought tires and whole wells to the rails. But they are unusual. One day, the other engines wouldn't stop teasing him.
  • Engines: Look at his steamroller wheels.
  • George Carlin: They joked.
  • Sir Handel: Be quiet.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: You're jealous.
  • Peter Sam: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Soothed Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: The engines all teased me about my special funnel until they learned how useful it is.
  • Sir Handel: Did you hear that?
  • George Carlin: Huffed Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: My wheels are special like Peter Sam's funnel. I can go faster than any of you.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey had a plan to make Sir Handel see sense.
  • Skarloey: With your grand wheels, Sir Handel.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You're just the engine to tackle George.
  • Sir Handel: Who's George?
  • Skarloey: That steamroller over there.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Listen.
  • George Carlin: The steamroller was making rude remarks about the engines.
  • George: Railways are no good. Turn them into roads. Pull them up, turn them into roads. Railways are no good. Turn them into roads. Pull them up, turn them into roads.
  • Sir Handel: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: Leave him to me. I'll send him packing. George will soon get a run for his money.
  • George Carlin: Later that morning, George was at the level crossing.
  • George: Huh! You're Sir Handel, I suppose.
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel was standing no nonsense.
  • Sir Handel: And you, I suppose, are George? Yes, I've heard of you.
  • George: And i've heard of you. You swank around with your stearoller wheels, pretending you're as good as me.
  • Sir Handel: Actually, i'm better. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: George chuffered on, fuming. Later that day, Sir Handel brought a special load down after the last train had gone. When he had reached the road he saw George travelling home. Sir Handel tried to attract his attention.
  • Sir Handel: Peep! Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: George took no notice. There was barely room to pass. Sir Handel was cross.
  • Sir Handel: Get out of my way, you great clumsy road hog.
  • George: Huh! I don't move for imitation steamrollers. You don't know the road. Get out of my way.
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble.
  • Sir Handel: Aagh!
  • George Carlin: Cried Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: That was your fault.
  • George: No it wasn't it was yours.
  • George Carlin: Everyone was arguing about who was to blame.
  • Policeman: Hello, hello, hello.
  • George Carlin: Said a policeman ominously.
  • Policeman: And what's going on here?
  • George Carlin: This made everyone stop arguing. They set to work clearing up the mess instead. Next day, the workmen put up a fence between the road and the railway. Then they went away, taking George with him. Sir Handel thought he had made George go away. He talked of nothing but steamrollers.
  • Skarloey: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: He's worse than ever. I'm sorry my plan was no good.
  • Rusty: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: We'll think of something else.
  • George Carlin: But they had no need to do that. Some boys arrived instead. They pointed to the engine and cried...
  • Boy: Look! Here's Sir Handel. He tried to race a steamroller, but the steam roller nearly beat him.
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel never mention steamrollers now.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Bye George!)
  • Alec Baldwin: One day, George the Steam Roller was waiting for Percy to take him to a new workplace. George was being rude to Rheneas and Skarloey.
  • George: You're just worn out wheels on worn out rails!
  • Skarloey: You need rocks for your roads.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: And we're helping you.
  • George: I need to flatten little engines in the scrapyard.
  • Alec Baldwin: Retorted George. Then Percy arrived to take George away. He was still rebelling.
  • George: Railways are no good! Turn them into roads!
  • Alec Baldwin: The little engines were pleased to see him go. George grumbled all the way to the old branch line. He was going to turn it into a road. When they arrived, George was rude again.
  • George: Bumpy ride on rotten rails. I'm glad it's over.
  • Percy: So am I.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • George: Huh!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed George. Percy was still fuming when he met Thomas.
  • Thomas: What's up, Percy?
  • Percy: It's George. He makes me feel down.
  • Thomas: Just ignore him.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas. George was now enjoying himself.
  • George: Ripping up rails!
  • Alec Baldwin: He chortled.
  • George: What a life. What did you think of this, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas took no notice. George felt insulting.
  • George: You're a useless blue puffball!
  • Alec Baldwin: But Thomas didn't hear.
  • George: I'll show him who's boss?
  • Alec Baldwin: At last, the workmen reached the level crossing.
  • Workman: What shall we do here?
  • George: Tear it up, tarmacing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said George. So they did but not properly and George knew it. Later, Thomas was travelling home on the same line. He was pulling freight cars filled with vegetables. The signalman had forgotten to warn his driver about the crossing.
  • Thomas: That's nice. We don't need to stop.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas happily.
  • Thomas' Driver: Yes we do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Thomas slides off the rails, rolls down a field and crashes into a barn)
  • Alec Baldwin: Next day, Percy told Gordon all about George.
  • Gordon: Huh.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: You're just a small engine. That's why he's rude to you. He wouldn't dare cause me any trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: George had been taken to some yards to work. Duck arrived with a train of empty freight cars. George was blocking his way and a car was stuck on the main line.
  • Duck: Let me through.
  • Alec Baldwin: Demanded Duck.
  • George: You'll just have to wait.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied George.
  • Duck: There's no time to wait. I must clear my freight cars from the main line to let Gordon through.
  • George: Then you'll had to wait too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said George. Duck's driver went to complain to the stationmaster. But the signalman had set the signal to allow Gordon to speed through. His passengers with singing his praises and he was making express time.
  • Gordon: I'm the greatest. Just watch me fly by.
  • Alec Baldwin: He whistled long and loud as he approached the station. Suddenly, he saw a freight car on the line ahead.
  • Gordon: Get out of my way!
  • Alec Baldwin: But the freight car wouldn't move until Gordon forced it, by accident. Gordon was worried that Sir Topham Hatt would be cross. He was but not with Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Whoever cause this disturbance will have me to answer to.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he did, a few days later.
  • Thomas: Look who's here.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. George had been found out by Sir Topham Hatt and punished. He looked miserable.
  • Percy: Now we'll get some peace and last.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • George: I wanna get rolling again. But i had to wait a whole week till i do.
  • Thomas: And then you'll be just as rude as ever. Eh, George?
  • George: I hope not. Don't you?
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Train Stops Play)
  • George Carlin: Stepney the Bluebell Engine was busy talking to the other engines. It was his first visit to their railway and he was having a splendid time.
  • Stepney: You are very lucky engines.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Stepney: Your line has got everything. It's long enough to give you a good run, and you have plenty of passengers. Then you have a quarry and a mine, so you'll need plenty of cars. Cars are fun. I missed them on our line.
  • George Carlin: Percy was surprised. All the engines thought cars were trouble.
  • Percy: You're welcome to take some of mine.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Percy: But you better ask driver first.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers agreed and the two engines set off. Thomas and Toby were speechless. Stepney took the cars to the harbour. Then he picked up the loaded ones and started back. Ahead was a cricket field. The game had just begun. Stepney and his driver had to wait at the signal.
  • Driver: Good.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We can watch the game.
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble. The batsman hit the ball. It flew high into the sky towards Stepney's train. Clunk went the signal. Thump went the ball into a car, but neither driver nor fireman heard it.
  • Players: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the players but Stepney didn't hear them.
  • Stepney: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to the cars.
  • Players: Our one and only ball!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players.
  • Players: Wake up, Caroline.
  • George Carlin: They said to their old car.
  • Players: The chase was on.
  • George Carlin: Caroline coughed crossly and rolled down the road. Stepney wasn't hurrying. Caroline soon came up behind.
  • Caroline: Toot toot!
  • George Carlin: She wailed. The players shouted but Stepney was still too far for his driver and fireman to see or hear properly. They completely misunderstood.
  • Driver: If those jokers wanna race.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: They can have on. Faster, Stepney, faster!
  • George Carlin: Poor Caroline wasn't happy at all. She rattled along at twice her usual speed.
  • Caroline: I shouldn't be treated like this.
  • George Carlin: She grumbled.
  • Caroline: This pace is too hot for my system. It'll fuse all my circuits.
  • George Carlin: Suddenly, Stepney was nowhere to be seen.
  • Caroline: Yahoo! That silly train has run into a hole so we can't catch it. I can go home now.
  • George Carlin: But she couldn't. Her driver pounded Caroline on up the steep hill and then the other side toward the station. Stepney was already here when Caroline cluttered in.
  • Players: We need our ball back!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players and explained everything. The ball was nestled in some straw and the third car from the van.
  • Player: We found it!
  • George Carlin: Cried the player.
  • Driver: We're sorry.
  • George Carlin: Sighed the driver.
  • Player: Ah, you couldn't help it.
  • George Carlin: Replied the player.
  • Player: Now we must get back quickly.
  • Driver: You'll be lucky.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: Caroline looks worn out.
  • George Carlin: And she was. The driver spoke to the stationmaster and the signalman and they all agreed on the plan. Soon they rolled Caroline on to a flat car and a break van coupled behind. The players crowded in sight and Stepney pulled the train back to the playfield. Everyone enjoyed watching the game. Even Caroline was pleased. She doesn't think trains silly now.
  • Caroline: They have their uses. They can save the wear on a poor car's wheels.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Let's Have A Race)
  • Children: (singing) A lesson that's worth learning One you never should forget Is the art of friendly rivalry It's not always about winning You must learn that from the start Enjoy yourself remember What counts is taking part. Let's have a race, have a race, have a race Let's see who is the quickest Who can be the fastest On your marks, now get set, go!

  • Girl: To pass you on that hill Thomas I'd need wings like an airplane.
  • Children: (singing) Let's have a race, have a race, have a race Let's see who is the quickest Who can be the fastest On your marks, now get set, go!

  • (Children cheering)
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Mind That Bike)
  • George Carlin: If one morning you were to ride in Bertie the bus, he would ride down the winding country road with him, crossed over stone wall bridges and travel past Thomas' branch line. The you would hear Bertie's friendly greeting as he sees one of his friends pass by. His name is Tom Tipper the postman. Every day, Tom travels cheerfully around the Island of Sodor. He stops at stations collecting letters and parcels from Thomas and Percy's mail train. Then he delivers the mail to farms and cottages far and wide. The engines know that anywhere their rails wont reach, Tom Tipper would collect their mail and deliver it safely come rain or shine. He's always ready to load mail bags onto the trains too.
  • Percy: Thank you, Tom.
  • George Carlin: Whistles Percy.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agrees Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a really useful postman.
  • Tom: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Replies Tom.
  • Tom: But where would I be without me van. We make a grand pare.
  • George Carlin: One day, Tom wasn't at the platform. A postman they didn't know dumped the bags on the platform and disappeared.
  • Percy: What happened to Tom?
  • George Carlin: Wondered Percy.
  • Driver: And his old van.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: No wonder the new postman looks cross. Trying to carry mail bags on a bicycle would make anyone miserable.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the engines were glad to see Tom back again. But he looked very sad.
  • Tom: The postmaster has decided my van is too expensive to run. The rounds take longer on my bike. I'm sorry, I can't stop to help ya.
  • Percy: I wished I could cheer Tom Tipper up.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy the Small Engine. He was just wondering about how this might be done when his thoughts were rudely interrupted. A man was shouting at Tom Tipper.
  • Man: You gotta come back to Sir Topham Hatt's office! He needs you to sign some important papers right away.
  • Tom: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Replied Tom Tipper.
  • Tom: This is going to make me later still.
  • George Carlin: He was in a hurry and being careless. He propped his bike against Percy's mail car and rushed away.
  • Percy: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy. But Tom was out of sight. There was worst to come. Percy's driver hadn't seen the bike and he started away.
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: Now they'll be trouble.
  • George Carlin: And there was. Percy's driver quickly stop the train. Everyone came running to the scene. Tom Tipper's bicycle was in pieces.
  • Percy: I'm sorry, Mr. Tipper.
  • George Carlin: Apologized Percy.
  • Tom: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said the postman.
  • Tom: It wasn't your fault. But now I've only my legs to get the mail delivered. Whatever will happen next?
  • George Carlin: Tom Tipper soon found out. Next day he was waiting happily for Percy.
  • Percy: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: Is that a smart new van I see?
  • Tom: It is indeed. That accident did me a good tire, Percy. My chief decided my new van should do the job much better than my old bike and worth the expense. Now I can always be on time again.
  • Percy: So I did help.
  • George Carlin: Beamed Percy.
  • Percy: But by accident you might say.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Bulgy)
  • George Carlin: It was a special holiday on the Island of Sodor. Bertie the Bus was working harder than ever before. All the engines were busy too. Duck was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Bertie. The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Bulgy: Stupid nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Bulgy: I wouldn't have brought them if I've known. I did have a breakdown or something.
  • Duck: I'm glad you didn't.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Duck.
  • Duck: You had spoiled their fun.
  • Bulgy: Bah! Enjoyment is all you engines lived for. One day railways will be ripped up.
  • George Carlin: Duck felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Duck: We have a friend called Bertie and he's a bus. But he likes the railway. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Bulgy: Heh!
  • George Carlin: Growled the bus.
  • Bulgy: I know Bertie. He's too small in size to be in any use.
  • George Carlin: Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: That bus is silly.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he steamed away. At the junction, Duck told Oliver all about him.
  • Oliver: I call him Bulgy.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Oliver and then he puffed happily away. But that afternoon when the two engines met again, Oliver was no longer laughing.
  • Oliver: Bulgy's friend had come.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Oliver: He's rude too. He's taking Bulgy's passengers home and leaving Bulgy free to steal ours.
  • Duck: But he can't.
  • George Carlin: Objected Duck.
  • Oliver: Bulgy says he can get them to the big station before us.
  • Duck: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: It's much farther by road.
  • Oliver: Yeah.
  • George Carlin: Continued Oliver.
  • Oliver: But Bulgy says he knows a shortcut.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Duck: Where are the passengers?
  • George Carlin: They wondered.
  • Oliver: Look!
  • George Carlin: Shrilled Oliver.
  • Oliver: Look at Bulgy. He's a mean scarlet deciever.
  • George Carlin: Bulgy was wearing a large sign saying: Railway Bus.
  • Bulgy: Yaa boo snubs.
  • George Carlin: He jeered as he roared away.
  • Duck: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duck to his coaches.
  • Duck: Let's see what he's up to.
  • George Carlin: Duck wanted to get back at Bulgy, but he wasn't sure how. Then in the distance, Duck saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Bulgy wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Duck: So this was his shortcut.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He tricked us.
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets. He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • George Carlin: Duck's crew examined the bridge.
  • Duck's Crew: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Duck: Passengers are urgent.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. Duck slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Bulgy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Bulgy: (groaning) Stop!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Bulgy: It might fall on me.
  • Duck: That would serve you right for telling lies.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck. But the bridge didn't collapse. Duck made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Bulgy and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Bulgy Rides Again)
  • Michael Brandon: In the summertime there is no better place to be than the Island of Sodor. The engines are happy to show vacationers the wonderful sights to be seen. But this year, there was a problem. Thomas and Emily were in the foundry for repairs.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need to find a way to carry more passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We have more vacationers.
  • Emily: And fewer engines.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Thomas: A double decker problem.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A double decker problem? Hmm.
  • Michael Brandon: This gave Sir Topham Hatt an idea. He drove straight to Bulgy's field. Bulgy is a double decker bus. He was turned into a hen house after he caused the silly accident.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good news, Bulgy, I'm putting you back on the road.
  • Bulgy: Thank you, sir. I'll be the best bus ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Bulgy never liked being a hen house anyway. The next day, he went to the foundry.
  • Thomas: Bulgy!
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What are you doing here?
  • Bulgy: I'm being repaired, I'm going back on the road.
  • Emily: I think you'll be helping the new farmer.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: He needs to deliver his vegetables around the island.
  • Bulgy: Vegetables!? Hmph! I'm going to carry passengers!
  • Michael Brandon: Soon, Bulgy was refitted inside and out. He looked smart and shiny. Even James was impressed.
  • James: Ooooo.
  • Michael Brandon: When Bulgy returned to his field, the hens thought their old house looked splendid.
  • Bulgy's Driver: We'll start in the morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Bulgy's Driver: You'll stay here tonight.
  • Michael Brandon: Bulgy was soon fast asleep. But the hens missed their old home. One by one, they crept aboard and went to sleep in the luggage racks. Bulgy knew nothing. The next morning Bulgy picked up lots of passengers.
  • Bulgy: All aboard.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted and set off for the station. He was driving so smoothly that the hens didn't wake up. All was well until Bulgy turned a corner. Trevor was pulling a hay-cart.
  • Bulgy: Get out of my way!
  • Michael Brandon: He overtook Trevor. Bulgy swerved, the hens woke up, the passengers panicked and Bulgy's driver lost control. The hens were frightened. They flapped, they squawked.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: Stop!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: We want to get off!
  • Michael Brandon: The passengers were covered in feathers and broken eggs. They were very cross.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: This bus is full of hens!
  • Michael Brandon: They complained.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: We shall tell Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Bulgy: It's not my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Sulked Bulgy. Sir Topham Hatt sent Bulgy to be cleaned.
  • Bulgy: Silly hens, silly passengers, you can have them both.
  • Emily: The farmer still needs help with his vegetables.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Bulgy: A vegetable bus? Hmmm, hey that's not such a bad idea.
  • Thomas: And we're back carrying passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Smiled Thomas. Bulgy is happy now. He has new green paintwork and a smart serving hatch. Sir Topham Hatt agreed he could become the island's only vegetable stand on wheels. Bulgy likes carrying vegetables. They don't lay eggs and they never complained.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Horrid Lorry)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was a busy time at the docks. All the engines were working hard, pushing and pulling freight cars about. One day, Percy was late. Cranky the Crane was quick to critisize.
  • Cranky: These ships can't be kept waiting. They have important cargo. If they miss the tides, they will be delayed at the docks. You should look up to the ships and show more respect. You are after all only little.
  • Percy: We've got too much work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Percy.
  • Cranky: Then perhaps a lorry should do the job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was shocked. He told the other engines what Cranky had said.
  • James: Stuff and nonsense!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James.
  • Henry: We engines rerun this island.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Percy: What if a lorry does arrive?
  • Alec Baldwin: I'm afraid he did. Along with two more. Cranky was delighted.
  • Cranky: Hey you down there. Your jobs done now. These lorries are taking over. One of them wants to talk to you.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorry was very rude.
  • Lorry 2: What's that steaming lump of scrap iron doing here? Be off with you!
  • Percy: Scrap iron? Steaming scrap iron? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: A little later, Percy met Thomas and James. Another lorry was being rude to them. Then he saw Percy.
  • Lorry 1: Oh, look. It's a little green goblin on wheels. Ha! You'd be scrapped. Just you wait and see.
  • Thomas: Well, bust my boiler. What a horrid lorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Thomas.
  • James: Despicable!
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed James. The next engine to meet a lorry was Toby.
  • Lorry 2: Well, well, well. No wonder this railway's a mess. You belong into this museum, not working at the quarry.
  • Toby: I might look old, but I'm really useful.
  • Lorry 2: Useful? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: Just you toodle off.
  • Toby: Toodle?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Spluttered Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: Come on, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Interrupted his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: Don't bother to argue with him. We'll go to the flour mill instead.
  • Alec Baldwin: But when they arrived at the flour mill, Toby was shocked to see yet another lorry.
  • Toby: What are you doing here?
  • Lorry 3: We three are doing your work now. You're too slow.
  • Alec Baldwin: The foreman spoke to Toby's driver.
  • Foreman: I'm sorry. Times are changing i'm afraid.
  • Toby's Driver: Toby might me old.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: But he's reliable. Come on, Toby. We'll go to the farms. They'll still use us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby trundled sadly away. His railway ran through a narrow gorge. But vehicles had take a steep and dangerous road. When Toby arrived, he saw the lorry from the quarry again. It was loaded with rock.
  • Toby: That lorry's in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thought Toby. And he was.
  • (Lorry 2 falls down the gorge and towards the ground leaving Toby speechless)
  • Alec Baldwin: The driver was thrown clear.
  • Driver: Rotten roads.
  • Alec Baldwin: He muttered. The wrecked lorry was taking to the docks. Percy looked at the lorry.
  • Percy: What's this lump of steaming scrap iron?
  • Alec Baldwin: He teased.
  • Lorry 2: I'll be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: So you can wipe that silly smile off your smokebox.
  • Percy: Ha!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy and wheeshed him loudly. Then Butch the breakdown vehicle arrived. He towing the lorry from the flour mill.
  • Toby's Driver: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby's driver.
  • Cander: He was overloaded with flour.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cander replied.
  • Cander: And he broke down.
  • Toby: Not very useful now are you?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Lorries: Grr!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorries. Then James whistled excitedly.
  • James: They're bringing in the third lorry on a barge. What happened to that one?
  • Tow Truck Man: Stupid Lorry was reversing and fell straight into the sea.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Tow Truck Man. Later, Thomas arrived. He looked at the three lorries and laughed.
  • Thomas: Well, well, well. The brothers grimm. Smashed, broken and sunk.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorries didn't return, and the engines now work even harder to make sure they'll ever learn.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Elizabeth The Vintage Quarry Truck)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas the Tank Engine enjoys taking specials. Today, he was bringing a special to Brendam Docks. His load was to go onto the cargo ship. The ship was scheduled to depart at sundown. Thomas had to get to the docks before then. But the load was very heavy. So Thomas puffed as hard as he could. He pulled so hard he broke his coupling rods. He wasn't going anywhere.
  • Thomas: Oh, dear!
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Thomas: I'll be late.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver saw an old shed near the track.
  • Driver: If there's a telephone in there I could call for help.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Hurry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And be careful. It looks spooky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then a voice boomed from inside the shed.
  • Elizabeth: Do you mind? I'm trying to sleep.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas hoped it wasn't a ghost, then his driver appeared.
  • Thomas: Is it a ghost?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas nervously.
  • Driver: It's a surprise.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver teased. Then the fireman took some of Thomas' coal and headed off to the shed.
  • Driver: She can get us to the fitter's yard.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver said.
  • Fireman: If her boiler holds.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added the fireman anxiously.
  • Thomas: What kind of surprise is that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas wondered.
  • Driver: Thomas, meet Elizabeth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. At last the doors opened and out chuffed a dirty grimy steam truck.
  • Elizabeth: So you're the little puffer that's broken down.
  • Alec Baldwin: She sniffed. Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: And you're just an old steam truck.
  • Alec Baldwin: He retorted.
  • Elizabeth: That would be vintage steam truck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: And I haven't much time for your coupling rods.
  • Alec Baldwin: The driver was concerned. Elizabeth was making awful grinding sounds.
  • Driver: She's not built for hills.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said anxiously.
  • Driver: You're losing steam.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called.
  • Elizabeth: Just catching my breath.
  • Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth chuffed. And finally, she made it. When Elizabeth returned with Thomas' coupling rods, she was pleased with herself.
  • Elizabeth: And next time don't be so careless.
  • Alec Baldwin: She scolded. Thomas thought Elizabeth was the rudest truck he ever met. But he was happy to get his new coupling rods. Thomas made it to the docks just in time.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What took you so long?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas told him about his broken coupling rods. He wanted to tell how rude Elizabeth was when she rolled up.
  • Elizabeth: Oh, it's you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Elizabeth looking down at Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Elizabeth: Have you learned to drive properly yet.
  • Thomas: She's in trouble now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said to his driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Elizabeth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt fountly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My first truck. I thought you have been lost.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were old friends. It was too much for Thomas. Then Elizabeth told Sir Topham Hatt how she'd been left in the shed for years. Sir Topham Hatt had been so pleased Elizabeth had been found. He asked Jem Cole to restore her to her original beauty. And soon Elizabeth had a rich dark color with gleaming coach works.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're the grandest truck in the whole railway.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Elizabeth: I know.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Elizabeth even more proudly. And Thomas had to agreed she did look grand.
  • (Another puffing by sequence happens and we begin Engine Roll Call)
  • 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.
