Thomas Goes Fishing

  • (We open this DVD with a CGI Thomas passing over a bridge)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We soon show the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We next see the 2004 version of the Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin Thomas Goes Fishing)
  • Ringo Starr: When Thomas puffed along his branch line, he always look forward to something special. The sight of the river. As they rumble over the bridge, he would see people fishing. Thomas often wanted to stay and watch, but his driver said...
  • Driver: No! What would Sir Topham Hatt say if we were late?
  • Ringo Starr: Every time he met another engine he say...
  • Thomas: I want to fish.
  • Ringo Starr: But they all had the same answer.
  • James: Engines don't go fishing.
  • Thomas: Silly stick in the muds.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Thomas. One day, he stopped as usual to take him water at the station by the river. Out of order.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm thirsty.
  • Driver: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll get some water from the river.
  • Ringo Starr: They found a bucket and some rope and went to the bridge. Then the driver left the bucket down to the water. The bucket was old and have five holes, so they had to fill it, pull it up, and empty it into Thomas' tank as quickly as they could several times over. They finished at last.
  • Thomas: That's good, that's good.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Thomas and Annie and Clarabel ran happily behind. Suddenly, Thomas began to feel a pain in his boiler. Steam began to hiss with his safety valve in an alarming way.
  • Driver: There's too much steam!
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm going to burst! I'm going to burst!
  • Ringo Starr: They damped down his fire and struggled on.
  • Thomas: I've got such a pain, I've got such a pain!
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas hissed. They stopped just outside the last station, uncoupled Annie and Clarabel and ran Thomas, who was still hissing fit to burst, on a siding right out of the way. Then, while the conductor telephoned for an engine inspector, the driver found notice in large letters, which he hung on Thomas in front and behind. Danger: Keep Away. Soon, the inspector and Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Inspector: Cheer up, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Inspector: We'll soon put you right.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver told them what had happened.
  • Inspector: So the feed pipe is blocked.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the inspector.
  • Inspector: I'll just look in the tanks.
  • Ringo Starr: He climbed up and peered in, then he came down.
  • Inspector: Excuse me, sir, please look in the tank and tell me what you see.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly, inspector.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. He clambered up, looked in and nearly fell off in surprise.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Inspector.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Can you see fish?
  • (Thomas is horrified upon hearing this)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gracious goodness me! How did the fish get there, driver?
  • Driver: We must have fished them from the river with our bucket.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Thomas' driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas, so you and your driver had been fishing. But fish don't suit you. We must get them out.
  • Ringo Starr: They all took turns and fishing into Thomas' tank while Sir Topham Hatt looked down and told them how to do it. When they had caught all the fish, they had a lovely picnic supper of fish and chips.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Mmm. That was good.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But fish don't suit you, Thomas, so you mustn't do it again.
  • Thomas: No, sir, I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: Engines don't go fishing. It's too uncomfortable.

Toby The Tram Engine

  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: She grumbles remembering she used to be full and nine cars would rattle behind her. Now there were only three 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. 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the children.
  • Children: Do look at this engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a tram engine, Stephen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Bridget: Is it electric?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Bridget.
  • Toby: Whoosh!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Toby.
  • Stephen: Shh, shh!
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt to the conductor. They all scrambled into Henrietta.
  • Henrietta: Hip-hip hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Chanted Henrietta. But Toby didn't sing.
  • Toby: Electric indeed! Electric indeed!
  • Ringo Starr: He snorted. He was proud of being a steam tram.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What is your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Toby: Toby, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Thank you, Toby, for a very nice ride.
  • Toby: Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby. He felt better now.
  • Toby: This gentleman...
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Toby: ...is a gentleman who knows how to speak to engines.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Toby.
  • Children: We will, we will.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver one morning.
  • Driver: The manager says we must close tomorrow.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the passengers afterwards.
  • Passengers: We are sorry your line was closing down.
  • Toby: So am I.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed Toby.
  • Toby: Nobody wants me.
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted excitedly.
  • Driver: The mail has just arrived and there's a letter for us from the stout gentleman! Maybe it's good news.

Thomas Breaks The Rules

  • Ringo Starr: There's the line to a quarry at the end of Thomas' branch. It goes to some distance along the road. Thomas was very careful to whistle here in case anyone was coming. Early one morning, a large policeman was sitting close to the line. Thomas liked policemen. He had been a great friend of the officer who had just retired.
  • Thomas: Peep! Peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • Thomas: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas expected that the new officer would be friendly too. But was sorry to see that he didn't look friendly at all. He was red in the face and very cross.
  • Policeman: Disgraceful!
  • Ringo Starr: He spluttered.
  • Policeman: I didn't sleep a wink last night. It was so quiet, and now engines come whistling suddenly behind me.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I only said good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: The policeman pointed to Thomas.
  • Policeman: Where's your cowcatchers?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Thomas: But I don't catch cows, sir.
  • Policeman: Don't be funny.
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped the policeman. He looked at Thomas' wheels.
  • Policeman: No side plates either.
  • Ringo Starr: And he wrote in his notebook.
  • Policeman: Engines going on public roads must have their wheels covered and a cowcatcher in front to protect people and animals from being dragged under the wheels if they stray under the line. You haven't so you are dangerous.
  • Driver: Rubbish.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: We've been along here hundreds of times and never had an accident.
  • Policeman: That makes it worse.
  • Ringo Starr: The policeman answered. He wrote Regular Law Breaker in his book. Thomas puffed sadly away. Sir Topham Hatt was having breakfast he was eating toast and marmalade. The butler came in.
  • Butler: Excuse me, sir, you're wanted on the telephone.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother that telephone!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Phone chattering)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, my dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to his wife.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas is in trouble with the police and I must go at once.
  • Ringo Starr: At the station, Thomas' driver told Sir Topham Hatt what had happened.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Dangerous to the public indeed. We'll see about that.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the policeman. But however much he argued with him it was no good.
  • Policeman: The law is the law.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Policeman: And we can't change it.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt felt exhausted.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, driver.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's no use arguing with the policeman. We will have to make those cowcatcher things for Thomas I suppose.
  • Thomas: Everyone will laugh, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They say I look like a tram.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt stared, then he laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. Why didn't I think of it before? We want a tram engine. When I was on my holiday, I met a nice little engine called Toby. He takes freight cars from the farms but the trucks have taken most of his work and he needs a change. He has cowcatchers and sideplates. I'll write to this superintendent at once.
  • Ringo Starr: A few days later, Toby arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see you brought your coach Henrietta.
  • Toby: You don't mind, do you, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Toby.
  • Toby: The stationmaster wanted to use her as a hen house, and that would never do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We couldn't allow that.
  • Ringo Starr: Toby made the silly cars even better than Thomas did.
  • Policeman: Oi you!
  • Ringo Starr: At first, Thomas was jealous, but he was so pleased when Toby rang his bell and frightened the policeman, they've been firmed friends ever since.

Woolly Bear

  • Ringo Starr: In the summer, the work crews cut the long grass along the tracks raking it into heaps to dry in the sun. At this time of year, Percy stops where they have been cutting. The men load up his empty wagons and he pulls them to the station.
  • (Percy leaves with the loaded cars)
  • Ringo Starr: Toby then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • (Toby also leaves with the same load)
  • Percy: Wheeeeeeeesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Percy gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Percy: Don't be frightened, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: He laughed.
  • Percy: It's only me!
  • Thomas: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're like...
  • Percy: Ugly indeed. I'm...
  • Thomas: A green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: Continued Thomas firmly.
  • Thomas: You crawl like one too.
  • Percy: I don't!
  • Thomas: Who's been late every afternoon this week?
  • Percy: It's the hay.
  • Thomas: I can't help that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Time's time, and Sir Topham Hatt relies on me to keep it. I can't if you crawl in the hay till all hours.
  • Percy: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Percy. He set off to collect some hay to take to the harbour.
  • Percy: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly anyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Thomas' corners. Thomas says I'm always late.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Percy: I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Thomas? He can always catch up time farther on.
  • Ringo Starr: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (The crate of treacle appears held by a crane it falls down and lands on Percy with a loud Wham!)
  • Ringo Starr: A crate of treacle was upset all over Percy. Percy was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away. The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Percy's Driver: Look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the track. The line climbed here.
  • Percy's Driver: Take a run at it, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: His driver advised. Percy gathered speed. But the hay made the rails slippery and his wheels wouldn't grip. Time after time he stalled with spinning wheels and had to wait until the line ahead was cleared before he could start again. Everyone was waiting. Thomas seethed impatiently.
  • Thomas: Ten minutes late. I warned him. Passengers will complain and Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Ringo Starr: Then they all saw Percy. They laughed and shouted.
  • (Passengers laughing)
  • Percy: Sorry I'm late.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy panted.
  • Thomas: Look what's crawled out of the hay!
  • Ringo Starr: Teased Thomas.
  • Percy: What's wrong?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy.
  • Thomas: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's worth been late to have seen you.
  • Ringo Starr: When Percy got home, his driver showed him what he looked like in the mirror.
  • (Percy gets shocked in the mirror)
  • Percy: Bust my buffers! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just look like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Toby comes.
  • Ringo Starr: But it was no good. Thomas told Toby all about it.
  • (Workmen are seen clearing the hay out of Percy)
  • Ringo Starr: Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Thomas and Toby made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawled about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Percy thought they were really being very silly indeed!

Percy's Promise

  • George Carlin: Every summer, the Island of Sodor was very busy. Holiday makers love the sight see. When the weather is fine, there's no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains. Others like the valleys. Children love the seaside. One morning, Thomas was puffing along the line that runs by the coast. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel were packed with children going to the beach. Everyone was happy. Percy was taking some freight cars at the Harbour.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas. You look cheerful. I wish I can take children today instead of freight cars.
  • Thomas: They're in the vicar's Sunday school.
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home.
  • Percy: Of course I will.
  • George Carlin: Promised Percy. Later, Percy saw Harold.
  • Harold: Sorry, Percy. Can't talk. I'm on high alert.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Harold: Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Might how you go, Percy.
  • Percy: Huh.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: As long I got rails to run on, I can go anywhere and any weather anyhow. Goodbye.
  • Edward: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Edward.
  • Edward: There's a storm coming.
  • Percy: A promise is a promise.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: No matter what the weather.
  • George Carlin: The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead. Annie and Clarabel were glad when Percy arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: He shivered and thought of his nice dry shed. Percy struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside. The river was rising fast.
  • Percy: I wish I could see, I wish I could see!
  • George Carlin: Complained Percy as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead.
  • (Percy falls into the water and inside him, the fire gets sloshed)
  • Percy: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Percy.
  • Percy: The water's sloshing my fire!
  • George Carlin: Percy's driver and fireman had to find some more firewood.
  • Fireman: I'll have some of your floor boards, please.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman to the conductor.
  • Conductor: I only swept the floor this morning.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the conductor and he still help. Soon, Percy's fire was burning well. He felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Harold.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: Harold's coming to laugh at me.
  • George Carlin: Something floated onto Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: He needed throw things.
  • Driver: It's a parachute!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: Harold's dropping hot drinks from us.
  • Percy: Thank you, Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Harold: Good to be at service.
  • George Carlin: Replied Harold as buzzed away. The water lapped Percy's wheels. Percy was losing steam again, but he plunged bravely on.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He meant one more big effort, and at last exhausted by triumph, he brought the train home.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Thomas.
  • Thomas: You kept your promise, despite everything!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived in Harold. First, he thanked the men, then Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Harold told me you are a wizard. He said he can beat you at somethings, but not a been on submarine. I don't know what you get onto sometimes, but I do know that you're a really useful engine.
  • Percy: Oh sir.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy happily.

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.

Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday

  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Sir Topham Hatt arranged with Thomas the Tank Engine to take his wife and grandchildren to the seaside. The sun shone and everywhere looked splendid. But, Lady Hatt was feeling hot and tired. She took her troubles out on Annie and Clarabel.
  • Lady Hatt: Those coaches are old and uncomfortable. Why don't you use them as beach hogs instead?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was most upset.
  • Thomas: You don't let them turn Annie and Clarabel into beach hogs, will you?
  • Driver: Of course not, Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: But I must admit they could be smarten up.
  • Alec Baldwin: The next day, Sir Topham Hatt used Percy to take his family to Harold's airfield. They were just about to board Harold when it happened.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ooh, what was that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Harold: Uh, that's Tiger Moth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Harold.
  • Harold: It's rude and flies much too low.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So I can see. Please take us up Harold before there's another disturbance.
  • Alec Baldwin: A few days later, Harold arrived at their holiday home with bad news.
  • Harold's Pilot: Uh, It's Tiger Moth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Harold's Pilot.
  • Harold's Pilot: It's gone missing. Do you wish to join the search party with us?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I think I better.
  • (Harold looks for Tiger Moth)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's Tiger Moth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Sir Topham Hatt. Then he spoke to the pilot.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are showing off and flying dangerously. I will speak to your controller and request that you are grounded.
  • Pilot: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the pilot.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now if you'll excuse me, I shall return to my holiday.
  • Pilot: Jolly good idea, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt arranged to meet up with Toby and Henrietta to take them somewhere special. They arrived at a small river inland.
  • Stephen and Bridget: What a beautiful boat!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed the children.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's my special treat.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt took the helm with his wife beside him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's so nice to be away from the railway for once.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to her.
  • Lady Hatt: And far cleaner.
  • Alec Baldwin: She replied. But life on the river is very different from that on the rails. The family were enjoying themselves so much that they forgot to watch where they were going.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oh, botheration!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We're stuck!
  • Alec Baldwin: And they were. Other boats try to pull them off the mudbank, but it was no use. Percy saw the commotion and stopped.
  • Driver: Is there anything we can do to help?
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, indeed there is. This is the life, isn't it, my dear?
  • Alec Baldwin: Soon, they arrived at a small station. There was Thomas with Annie and Clarabel who were looking as smart as their new paint inside and out.
  • Lady Hatt: My!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Lady Hatt.
  • Lady Hatt: What splendid coaches. So much suitable for those beach hogs on wheels.
  • Alec Baldwin: No one said a word. But that evening, Annie and Clarabel spoke to Thomas.
  • Annie: It's very nice to get compliments...
  • Clarabel: ...but no matter what we look like we're always be useful, won't we, Thomas?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Alec Baldwin: They're friend replied.

James and The Red Balloon

  • Alec Baldwin: It is summer holiday time on the Island of Sodor. Vacationers come far and wide to enjoy the beauty of the island. It is the busiest time of the year for Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Thomas was excited. Sir Topham Hatt had sent him to pick up a special to deliver to Dryaw arfield.
  • Percy: What have you got there?
  • Alec Baldwin: Tooted Percy.
  • Thomas: A balloon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Percy: A party balloon?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy excitedly.
  • Thomas: No.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: This is a very special balloon.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he chuffed away. Soon, Thomas arrived at the airfield and hot air was puffed into the balloon.
  • James: What is that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James.
  • Thomas: A hot air balloon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: It would take vacationers on rides around the island.
  • James: Taking vacationers on rides around the island is our job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wheeshed James jealously. Then, as if by magic, the hot air balloon rose silently up into the sky.
  • James: What if the hot air balloon takes our passengers away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed James.
  • James: What would happen to us then.
  • Alec Baldwin: This made Thomas worried. Suddenly, he wasn't so excited about the balloon. The balloon can be seen by everyone on the Island of Sodor. Duck gazed at it for so long, he ran into the back of Stepney.
  • Donald: Why, it's a floating basket with folks in it...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald.
  • Douglas: Whatever would they dream up next?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas. James and Thomas were waiting at the level crossing. They were still worried about the hot air balloon.
  • Thomas: If it takes our passengers away...
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: They'll be no use for us engines.
  • James: Passengers should travel on trains.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James.
  • James: Not in silly balloons.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then something big and round and red drifted straight towards them.
  • Voice: We're out of hot air!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted a voice.
  • James: Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried James.
  • James: What's happening!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Crash! Bang! Wallop! Went the balloon and landed right on top of James. He was so scared, he let out a huge burst of steam which blew the balloon up again. The balloon rose into the air once more.
  • James' Driver: Well done, James.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • James' Driver: Your hot air did the trick.
  • Thomas: Oh no, James.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: You saved the hot air balloon.
  • James: I didn't mean to.
  • Alec Baldwin: Groaned James.
  • James: Now we're sure to take our passengers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wherever James went, he could see the balloon carrying vacationers across the island. He felt he should be taking those passengers.
  • James: Rails are better than hot air any day.
  • Alec Baldwin: James arrived back at the station. There were lots of people on the platform. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, James.
  • James: But now the passengers will ride in the hot air balloon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're right, James.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But they will need a ride home in a train.
  • Alec Baldwin: James was delighted. Sir Topham Hatt was right. The engines were busier than ever. Taking vacationers to and from the airfield. Whenever James sees the red balloon, he whistles and toots. And sometimes when he's asleep at night, James dreams he can fly too. Just like the red balloon.

Thomas, Percy and The Squeak

  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor love the summer. Sir Topham Hatt arranges lots of concerts. Music can often be heard drifting through the air. The engines do enjoy it. One morning, the engines were very excited. Alicia Botti, the famous singer, was coming to the Island of Sodor.
  • Gordon: She's a coloratura.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon importantly.
  • Thomas: What's a coloratura?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: It means she can sing high notes very, very loud.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt will choose me to collect her.
  • Alec Baldwin: Boasted James.
  • James: I'm the brightest and the shiniest.
  • Gordon: Nonsense, I'm the most important.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon. Thomas wanted to feel important too.
  • Thomas: He might choose me.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said hopefully.
  • Gordon: Well one thing's for sure...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wont choose Dirty Percy.
  • Percy: Don't call me Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He chuffed crossly and he wheeshed away. But the next day, Sir Topham Hatt didn't choose Gordon and he didn't choose James, he chose Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Make sure Annie and Clarabel are squeaky clean.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas proudly. He felt very important indeed.
  • Thomas: Move aside, Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm the important engine today.
  • Percy: But I need a washdown.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: My passengers will laugh at me.
  • Thomas: But I had to be squeaky clean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: So you'll just have to wait.
  • Percy: I can't wait!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumped Percy.
  • Percy: I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he chuffed away. Soon, Thomas was shiny and squeaky clean. He felt more important than ever. But as the workers coupled Annie and Clarabel, they heard a strange sound.
  • Mouse: (squeaks)
  • Thomas: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas anxiously. His driver quickly oiled Annie and Clarabel's under carriage.
  • Thomas' Driver: That should take care of the bothersome squeak.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. On the way to the docks, Thomas heard the squeak again. He was worried. He didn't sound like his squeaky clean squeak. Thomas squeaked noisily into the keyside where Alicia Botti was waiting. Sir Topham Hatt held Clarabel's door open when...
  • Alicia Botti: A mouse!
  • Alec Baldwin: Alicia Botti screamed.
  • Mouse: (squeaking)
  • Alicia Botti: (screaming)
  • Alec Baldwin: And she screamed and she screamed and she screamed. She screamed so loud and so long that windows broke all over town.
  • Gordon: Definitely a coloratura.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon. Alicia Botti was cross.
  • Alicia Botti: I can't possibly travel in coaches riddled with mice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was very embarrassed and Thomas didn't feel important at all. Just then, Percy returned from his guaranteed connection.
  • Alicia Botti: Look at the little green engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Alicia Botti exclaimed.
  • Alicia Botti: So sweet and dirty like a proper steam engine.
  • Gordon: But he's filthy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed snootily.
  • Percy: But I cleaned up nice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Smiled Percy. He was glad somebody noticed. Alicia Botti boarded the train and Percy steamed away. He felt very proud. Later, Thomas saw Percy at the washdown.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I called you Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You go first.
  • Percy: Thanks, Thomas. It feels good to be friends.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: But where is your mouse?
  • Thomas: You'll see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grinned Thomas. That night was Alicia Botti's concert. Her voice carried across half the island. Sir Topham Hatt had made the little mouse her very own home in the corner of Tidmouth Sheds. And Thomas named her, Alicia.
  • Alicia: (squeaks)

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.

Emily's New Route

  • Michael Brandon: It was summertime on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were very busy. They carry freight and passengers up and down the lines. Sir Topham Hatt came to see Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am opening some new route for the summer.
  • Michael Brandon: He announced.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you will pull the flour mill special.
  • Emily: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily. She was pleased. Emily stopped to fill up with water on the way to the flour mill. But James was already there.
  • Emily: Sir Topham Hatt has given me the flour mill special.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • James: You're lucky.
  • Michael Brandon: James huffed.
  • James: I have to do the Black Loch run.
  • Emily: Why don't you like the Black Loch?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Emily.
  • James: There were boulders all over the tracks.
  • Michael Brandon: He moaned.
  • James: They bash your buffers and scratch your paint. And there's a Black Loch monster.
  • Emily: What's the Black Loch monster?
  • James: Nobody knows.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James.
  • James: Black figures move in the water and then they disappeared.
  • Emily: Oh...
  • Michael Brandon: And James puffed away. Emily was pleased she didn't have to go to Black Loch. At the flour mill, the flour had been loaded onto trucks. Emily was coupled up. Then she puffed across the countryside to Knapford Station. But the troublesome trucks saw a chance for mischief.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Hold back! Hold back!
  • Michael Brandon: They screeched. Emily pulled as hard as she could, but the troublesome trucks made her go very slowly. Emily was late delivering the flour. So they will be no fresh gray that day. Sir Topham Hatt was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This means I won't have any toast or muffins for breakfast. If you are late again, you will have to do the Black Loch run instead of James.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily didn't want to have her buffers bashed by boulders and she didn't want to see the Black Loch Monster.
  • Emily: I must get the flour to the station on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed. The next morning, the troublesome trucks tricked her again.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Off we go! Off we go!
  • Michael Brandon: They chuckled. They weren't coupled up probably.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Mustn't be late! Mustn't be late!
  • Michael Brandon: They giggled. So Emily puffed quickly away. But only half the troublesome trucks right with her. Emily arrived at the station.
  • Stationmaster: But you only got have the flour!
  • Michael Brandon: The stationmaster cried. So Emily have to go back for the rest of the troublesome trucks.
  • Emily: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily cried.
  • Emily: I don't want to get to the Black Loch run!
  • Michael Brandon: When Emily arrived at the mill, the trucks were more troublesome then ever.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Emily the late engine! Emily the late engine!
  • Michael Brandon: They sang. This made Emily very cross. And she biffed them very hard.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: They cried. And they splashed into the duck pond. Emily was covered up in a floury mess. That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, you have caused confusion and delay!
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now you are to take over the Black Loch run.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily was very unhappy.
  • Thomas: Wait until you tried it.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas chuffed.
  • Thomas: The Black Loch run might be nice.
  • Emily: I don't think so.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily moaned.
  • Emily: Bash buffers and a big monster. It sounds miserable to me.
  • Michael Brandon: The next morning, Emily puffed sadly to the station. Lots of exciting children and vacationers climbed on board.
  • Emily: They were looking forward to their vacation.
  • Michael Brandon: She thought.
  • Emily: I mustn't let them down.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon Emily was steaming up hills and through valleys.
  • Emily: I bet it won't last.
  • Michael Brandon: She said to herself. Emily reached to murkey roars of Black Loch.
  • Emily: Oh. That's were the monsters supposed to be.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed nervously. Then there was trouble. Rocks fell and blocked the line.
  • Emily: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily had to wait for help.
  • Emily: I knew I wouldn't like this too.
  • Michael Brandon: She huffed. Suddenly, she saw something moved and mysterious moving in a water.
  • Emily: I know the monster's coming.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily gasped. Emily was scared. Her boiler quivered and her valves rattled. She wanted to steam away.
  • Emily: I never wanna see Black Loch again.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried. But Emily thought the children and the coach behind her. She was determined to get them to the vacation wherever it took. At last the water settled. And Emily saw what the monster really was. It's the family of seals. Emily was delighted. The children were delighted too. Soon the line was cleared. Emily steamed on through the countryside. The children were reached the vacation on time. That evening, Thomas and Emily both stopped to watch the seals.
  • Emily: You were right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: Black Loch is a nice route after all.

Henry and The Wishing Tree

  • Michael Brandon: It was summertime on the Island of Sodor. Gordon pulled the passenger express. It was very busy, but Gordon love the hustle and bustle. Henry hauled freight cars in the forest. He loved the peace and quiet. But he didn't see many people. Sometimes working in the forest could be very lonely. Later, Henry pulled into Knapford Station. He was delighted to see all his passengers. But Gordon was not delighted to see Henry.
  • Gordon: Keep your smelly freight away from my passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Henry: But it's only logs.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Henry.
  • Gordon: Passengers and freight do not mix.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon and he wheeshed away. Henry watched the express leave the station.
  • Henry: I'd like to pull passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Henry.
  • Henry: Just for a change.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry stopped at the water tank on the edge of the forest. Children were standing by one of the trees.
  • Henry: What are those children doing?
  • Michael Brandon: Henry asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's the old Sodor wishing tree.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They must be making a wish.
  • Henry: A wishing tree?
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Henry.
  • Henry: How wonderful! Do you think it could make my wish come true?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Henry.
  • Thomas: It might.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas and he puffed away. Henry rolled up to the wishing tree. He took a deep breath and made a wish as hard as he could.
  • Henry: I wish, I wish I could pull the express instead of Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Tomorrow you will pull the express.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Henry: Thank you, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Said Henry happily. His wish had come true. The next morning, Henry chuffed cheerfully into Knapford Station. When his passengers were on board, Henry blew his whistle and pulled out of the station. But Henry puffed to quickly.
  • Driver: Go gently.
  • Michael Brandon: Called his driver.
  • Driver: You can bump freight but you can't bump passengers.
  • Henry: Sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Henry. Henry puffed proudly through the countryside.
  • Henry: Pulling passengers is a grand job.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Gordon was in the repair yard. He was being fitted with a new boiler. But Gordon felt lonely. He was missing his passengers. The passengers were missing Gordon too. They were having the bounciest bumpiest ride they had ever had. When Henry got back to the sheds, Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They have been complaints.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Passengers are not like logs. You must be gentle.
  • Henry: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Henry sadly. Being gentle was very difficult. Then Henry saw Gordon. He was looking miserable.
  • Henry: My wish has made Gordon go to the repair yard.
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped Henry. This made Henry feel very bad. The next day, Henry had to collect the dining car. He tried his best to be gentle. But he shunted the dining car so hard everything flew into the air. They were more complaints than ever. Henry didn't want to pull passengers anymore. He wanted to wish everything back to normal. But when he arrived at the forest, Henry couldn't remember which tree was the wishing tree.
  • Henry: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Henry.
  • Henry: Which one could it be?
  • Michael Brandon: Henry didn't know. So he decided to wish on all the trees.
  • Henry: I wish I could pull freight again.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Then he moved to the next tree and he wished again.
  • Henry: I wish I could pull freight again.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt arrived on board Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What are you doing, Henry?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are causing confusion and delay.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry told him all about the wishing tree.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wishing trees don't run railways.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's my job. Gordon just needed some repairs, he'll be back tomorrow.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry was delighted. The next day, Gordon came back to work. He looked as good as new. The passengers were so pleased to see him. They cheered and cheered and cheered. Gordon beamed happily for the rest of the day. Henry was happy to be back in the peace and quiet of the forest. At the end of the day, he stopped near the wishing tree. And even Sir Topham Hatt had told him trees don't run railways, Henry wished he would never have to pull passengers ever ever again, just in case.

Too Hot For Thomas

  • Michael Brandon: It was a baking hot summer on the island of Sodor. The sun was shining brightly. James and Toby were taking children to the seaside. It was a wonderful job. All the engines liked seeing the children's happy faces, and they loved hearing them cheer when they saw the sea. Thomas wished he was taking children to the seaside. But Thomas was taking a big tank of raspberry syrup to the ice cream factory. Down on the beach, it was very hot, and the ice cream lady had run out of ice cream. So when Thomas arrived at the ice cream factory, the factory manager was waiting for him.
  • Factory Manager: We have to make lots more ice cream.
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Factory Manager: You must go and get the cream, the chocolate and the strawberries.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was disappointed. He had lots to collect, and he wanted to take children to the seaside.
  • Driver: If we get everything in time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: Then we can still take some children.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas rushed to the dairy. He collected the cream... and he puffed away quickly. Next, Thomas had to collect some strawberries. So he raced through the countryside to Farmer McColl's. Then Thomas had to stop for James.
  • James: Out of the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: Passenger train coming through!
  • Michael Brandon: James's carriages were full of laughing children. They were going to the seaside.
  • Thomas: Why does James get to take the children?
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas. At last the crossing was clear and Thomas puffed away.
  • Thomas: If I'm quick, I can still take some of the children.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed, so Thomas raced as fast as he could. Soon, Thomas arrived at Farmer McColl's.
  • Thomas: Please be quick!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas panted. The farm workers loaded his freight car. Before long, it was filled with plump, ripe strawberries.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas chuffed, and he raced away. Next, he had to go to the chocolate factory. Thomas hurried through the baking sun.
  • Thomas: I've still got time to take some children to the seaside.
  • Michael Brandon: He panted. Thomas puffed faster and faster. His wheels clattered and his pistons pumped. But he puffed so fast, the signalman didn't change the points in time. Thomas raced down the wrong track.
  • Thomas: Bother.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas. Thomas had to reverse slowly and carefully back to the points. Then he had to wait while Toby went past. Toby was taking more children to the seaside. They were having a wonderful time.
  • Thomas: Everyone gets to take the children except me!
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas. At last the signalman changed the points. Thomas reversed back onto the track and soon he was on his way once again. When Thomas arrived at the chocolate factory it was getting late.
  • Thomas: Hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: If I'm quick, I might still get to take some children.
  • Michael Brandon: The workmen loaded Thomas's freight car as fast as they could. It was soon filled with heaps of chocolatey cocoa powder. Thomas was ready to go. But the shunters hadn't released the brakes on the freight cars. Thomas pulled as hard as he could, but the freight cars wouldn't move.
  • Thomas: I have to hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. He heaved, he huffed and he puffed, and he heaved so hard... the coupling broke! Thomas shot forward-- cocoa powder flew everywhere.
  • Thomas: Now I'll never get to take the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. After a long time, Thomas's freight cars were ready. The yard manager had release the brakes and Thomas chuffed carefully out of the yard. Finally the track turned left past the old church. Thomas arrived at the ice cream factory. He thought his job was nearly done, but he was wrong. The factory manager was waiting for him.
  • Factory Manager: The ice cream will soon be ready.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Factory Manager: You must take it to the seaside for me.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was very disappointed. He wished he could take children to the seaside instead. He wanted to hear them cheer when they saw the sea. Thomas puffed along the coast to the seaside.
  • Thomas: I wish I was taking the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Thomas. Percy was waiting at the seaside station and so were lots of children. They all cheered as Thomas pulled into the station. Thomas was surprised.
  • Thomas: Why are the children cheering?
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Percy: They're cheering for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: They've been waiting for the ice cream!
  • Michael Brandon: The children were delighted to see Thomas and delighted to eat the ice cream. Thomas loved seeing the children laugh and cheer. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with the children.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Today you have worked extra hard.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a really useful engine.
  • Thomas: Delivering ice cream is a fun job after all.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. He was very happy.

Thomas' Milkshake Muddle

  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' Milkshake Muddle. Once a year, the children on Sodor are all invited to a special summer party. There was to be ice cream and cake for everyone. Every engine wanted to be the one to take the children to the party. On the day of the party, Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth Sheds. Thomas hoped that he would be taking the children, but Sir Topham Hatt chose Emily. He had other jobs for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, first you ought to go to the dairy to collect milk to make the ice cream. Then, you must go to the farm on the other side of the island to collect butter for cakes. All in time for the childrens' party.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas set off proudly. When Thomas arrived at the dairy, the manager told him he was to take the milk churns to the ice cream factory.
  • Manager: You have to go very slowly.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Thomas. So Thomas steamed carefully away. When Thomas stopped at a signal, he met Emily.
  • Emily: Hello, slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: She whistled.
  • Thomas: I'm not being a slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm being reliable.
  • Emily: If you weren't a slowcoach...
  • Michael Brandon: Emily sniffed.
  • Emily: Sir Topham Hatt would have given you my job. I'm fast and I'm reliable. That's why I'm taking the children.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily looked very pleased with herself. This made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: I can be as fast as you.
  • Michael Brandon: He huffed.
  • Emily: I'll race you to the next signal.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily whistled. And she steamed quickly away. Thomas wheeshed after as fast as his pistons would pump. As he raced along, the milk churns rattled and rocked. They biffed and bashed. And at the next signal, Thomas raced ahead of Emily. Thomas was very pleased. He steamed off for the ice cream factory. But he had completely forgotten about going slowly. The ice cream factory manager was very happy. Thomas had delivered the milk in record time. Now the factory could make the ice cream for the party. But when the manager looked into one of the churns, he was very surprised.
  • Manager: This milk is almost butter.
  • Michael Brandon: Explained the manager. The factory manager asked Thomas if the churns had rattled around. Thomas looked worried.
  • Manager: If you shake milk for long enough, it turns to butter.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Thomas. Thomas was very upset. The factory manager was cross.
  • Manager: You must go back to the dairy and get more milk. And remember to go slowly this time.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly. Thomas steamed back to the dairy as fast as he could. When Thomas arrived back at the dairy, Sir Topham Hatt was there. He was very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, it is nearly time for the party and you still have not collected the butter from the other side of the island. The children will have no cakes for the party.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas felt terrible. Thomas trumbled slowly and carefully back to the ice cream factory. He didn't feel reliable. He had let everyone down. When he finally arrived with the milk, the manager told Thomas to take the old churns back to the dairy. But suddenly, Thomas had a better idea. Thomas steamed along with the milk churns even faster than he had before. He puffed up Gordon's Hill. And chuffed down to the valley. He raced like a rocket. And he wheeshed like the wind. The churns in Thomas' freight cars rattled and rolled. They clanked and crashed and biffed and bashed. Even the cows and sheep looked up to see what the noise was. But Thomas' couldn't stop until he got to the bakery. As he arrived, he blew his whistle long and hard.
  • Baker: I need butter, not milk.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the baker. He was surprised to see the milk churns.
  • Thomas: Look inside the churns.
  • Michael Brandon: Tooted Thomas. The baker couldn't believe his eyes. The almost butter was now butter.
  • Thomas: Enough to make all the cakes for the party.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt heard what Thomas had done. He came to see him. Thomas thought Sir Topham Hatt would be cross. He was very worried. But Sir Topham Hatt smiled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you have saved the childrens' party.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So today, that makes you the most reliable engine on the whole of Sodor.
  • Michael Brandon: And later, Thomas had his most important job yet. As guest of honor at the childrens' party. There was lots of ice cream and plenty of cakes. Everyone had a wonderful time. The children cheered for Thomas. Thomas felt very proud.

Rheneas and The Dinosaur

  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas and The Dinosaur. Rheneas and Skarloey are the best of friends. They love working together. And they enjoy shunting freight cars. They biff them and they bash them all day long. That summer, some men from the Sodor museum had found some very old bones. When they put the bones together, they made the skeleton of a dinosaur. That morning, the photographer arrived on the island to photograph the dinosaur. Thomas was to take him to the Transfer Yards. At the Transfer Yards, Mr. Percival was talking to his engines.
  • Mr. Percival: The dinosaur will soon be ready to go to the Sodor Museum.
  • Michael Brandon: Mr. Percival said.
  • Mr. Percival: I will need two very careful engines to collect it.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas and Skarloey were very excited.
  • Rheneas: We can be really careful.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: Watch.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas shunted some freight cars gently together, but Skarloey was too excited to be careful.
  • (Skarloey
  • Michael Brandon: The Narrow Gauge Controller was cross.
  • Mr. Percival: Rheneas and Skarloey, you are not careful engines.
  • Michael Brandon: Mr. Percival said.
  • Mr. Percival: I will have to choose two other engines to collect the dinosaur.
  • Rheneas: But I can be careful.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: Let me try again, please?
  • Mr. Percival: Very well.
  • Michael Brandon: Mr. Percival said.
  • Mr. Percival: But this is your last chance.
  • Rheneas: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rheneas happily. Skarloey was sad.
  • Skarloey: I'm sorry I biffed your freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled quietly.
  • Skarloey: But I'm sure we can take the dinosaur together.
  • Rheneas: No.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: I'll show Mr. Percival I could do it on my own.
  • Michael Brandon: And he steamed away. Later, Rheneas had to take some coal to the station houses. The cars were very heavy to him on his own. His pistons pounded and his axles ached, but Rheneas kept puffing.
  • Rheneas: Must take the dinosaur, must take the dinosaur.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Later at the Transfer Yards, Mr. Percival came to see Rheneas.
  • Mr. Percival: Rheneas, you have worked very hard today.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Mr. Percival kindly.
  • Mr. Percival: And pulled heavy freight cars very carefully on your own.
  • Michael Brandon: This made Rheneas very proud.
  • Mr. Percival: So I have decided you can collect the dinosaur.
  • Michael Brandon: Mr. Percival added.
  • Mr. Percival: But are you sure you can do it on your own?
  • Rheneas: Yes sir, I'm sure.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Rheneas. He was very happy.
  • Mr. Percival: And Skarloey.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Mr. Percival.
  • Mr. Percival: You will collect empty freight cars from the Timber Yards.
  • Skarloey: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Skarloey sadly. He watched Rheneas raced quickly away to collect the dinosaur. Rheneas chuffed cheerfully through the mountains. But when Rheneas arrived to collect the dinosaur, he was surprised. The dinosaur was very, very big, but Rheneas was sure he was strong enough to pull it. He coupled up to the flatbed and pulled with all his puff. He started to puff his way back to the yards. Rheneas blew his whistle as he puffed through middle station. Everyone thought the dinosaur skeleton was wonderful. And they all gave Rheneas a big cheer. Rheneas was very proud. Rheneas was puffing slowly up a hill. But the flatbed was too heavy. His puff was going and his pistons could hardly pump. Rheneas puffed slower and slower. Then, he rolled back down the hill. He could go no further.
  • Rheneas: Oh, no!
  • Michael Brandon: He moaned.
  • Rheneas: I'll never get the dinosaur to the Transfer Yards now.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas felt terrible. Then, he remembered his friend.
  • Rheneas: I wish Skarloey was here to help me.
  • Michael Brandon: He sighed. Skarloey was still on his way to collect freight cars from the Timber Yards. As he came around the bend in the line, he was very surprised to see a dinosaur blocking the track.
  • Skarloey: Out of my way!
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey tooted loudly. Rheneas heard Skarloey.
  • Rheneas: Skarloey!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Rheneas: I need your help. The dinosaur is too heavy for me. I can't pull it on my own.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey was still upset with Rheneas. He didn't want to help.
  • Rheneas: I was silly to think I could pull this own my own.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rheneas sadly.
  • Rheneas: It needs two engines and I need you. From now on, I'll always want us to work together.
  • Michael Brandon: That made Skarloey feel much better. And he buffered up to the flatbed to help his friend. Together, they push the dinosaur safely up the hill and all the way back to the yards. Rheneas and Skarloey puffed happily into the Transfer Yards just as Thomas arrived with the photographer. Rheneas and Skarloey had that picture taken from the dinosaur. They were delighted.
  • (
  • Michael Brandon: They were both pleased to be friends again and they both agreed that working with your friend is the best job of all.
