Thomas, Percy and The Mail Train

  • George Carlin: That night, when the other engines are tucked away in their sheds, you can still hear a faraway call of an engine's whistle, and a clickity-clack a train wheel's turning. This is the sound of a mail train. One train is pulled by Thomas, and the other by Percy, as the loads are too heavy for one engine to do the work alone. The mail is loaded into freight cars at the harbour and the engines pull their trains through the silent stations delivering their precious loads. One a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often Thomas and Percy can even see the stars. But whenever the weather, lamps along the track always light their way. One night, Percy was waiting at the junction. The main line train was late. At last, Henry arrived.
  • Henry: Sorry.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Henry: The mail boat from the main line was delayed.
  • Percy's Driver: Come on, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: Let's make up for lost time.
  • George Carlin: Percy hurried along as quickly as he could. But the sun was already rising as he finish his work.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: It's nice be up in about, when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around.
  • George Carlin: Percy was not alone for long.
  • Percy: Bother!
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: It's that dizzy-thing Harold.
  • Harold: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Whirled Harold.
  • Harold: I only said railways were out of date, but you're so slow with the mail. You should give everyone their stamps back.
  • George Carlin: Percy was too tired to explain.
  • Percy: Bird brain.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • Duck: Good morning, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck.
  • Duck: You're up early this morning.
  • Percy: No, you're wrong.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: I'm back, tired and late.
  • George Carlin: He rolled up to the shed and fell asleep, almost before his buffers touched the bar. He driver decided to set off early that evening. Thomas was waiting at the station.
  • Thomas: Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says the person in charge of the mail has complained to Sir Topham Hatt about the delay last night.
  • Percy: But that wasn't my fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Percy.
  • Thomas: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And so does Sir Topham Hatt, but this mail person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before.
  • George Carlin: The engines were just leaving when they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Harold: I say, you two, there's news flying about.
  • Percy: Where?
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy crossly.
  • Harold: All other the place. They're going to scrap the mail train and use me instead. Wings work wonders you know. Always.
  • Thomas: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas. That night, everything ran like clockwork. Thomas and Percy steamed through the stations making good time everywhere they went. At a station, Thomas notice the man looking cold and worried. He had missed his train home.
  • Thomas' Driver: We can give you a ride.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But it'll be rather uncomfortable.
  • Man: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Man: Anything's better than sitting here.
  • George Carlin: The next afternoon, Percy past the airfield and saw Harold.
  • Percy: Hello, lazywings. Are you too tired to fly today?
  • Harold: The wings are too strong.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Harold.
  • Harold: I've been grounded.
  • Percy: You need rails.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: They work wonders you know. Always.
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt show the two engines a letter. It was from the man who missed his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He thinks you are both splendid, and everyone says that the mail train is the pride of the line.

The Whistle Song

  • Children: (singing) Engines all have whistles, as everybody knows. And as they leave the station, you hear the whistle blow. Speeding down the hillside, the whistles blown with pride, Driver checks the signal, and whistles one more time. Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell. Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well, Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun! Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song! Every whistle's different; No two will sound the same, It helps to warn off danger if something's in your way. Whistles are important as every engine knows, Clear the line ahead now when the whistle blows! Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, James and Edward, Percy as well. Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun, Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song An engine lost its whistle and could not make a sound. It really was a problem until one could be found. 'Cause an engine's not an engine if it hasn't got a whistle, Hear the whistle blows! Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well. Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun, Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song. One long whistle means coming up fast, Two in the fog, give two short blasts. One, two, three, means clear up the line Let's blow our whistles one more time! Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, James and Edward, Percy as well. Engines blow your whistles, and let's all have some fun, Engines blow your whistles, Let's hear the whistle song!

Trust Thomas

  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was feeling bright and cheerful. It was a splendid day.
  • Thomas: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: He whistled to some cows, but the cows didn't reply.
  • Thomas: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They're busy with their breakfast.
  • George Carlin: Next he saw Bertie.
  • Thomas: Hello, Bertie. Care for a race today?
  • George Carlin: But all Bertie could say was...
  • Bertie: Ouch! That's another hole in the road!
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Thomas. Thomas was still in good spiris when Bertie arrived at the next station.
  • Thomas: Bad luck, Bertie. Now if you're a steam engine, you would run a repair on reliable rails.
  • Bertie: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: The railway was suppose to deliver the tar to mend the road two weeks ago. You can't trust a thing that runs on rails.
  • Thomas: I run on rails. You can trust me, Bertie. I'll see if I can find out what's happened.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas puffed away towards the big station. James was snorting about in the yard.
  • James: It's too bad!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • James: Percy goes to work at the harbour and I do his job, here, there and everywhere! Take that!
  • Freight Cars: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Just you wait, we'll show you!
  • George Carlin: Gordon laughed.
  • Gordon: I'll tell you what, James. If you pretended to be ill everywhere, you couldn't freight cars here, or go to the quarry there, could you?
  • James: What a good idea.
  • George Carlin: Agreed James.
  • James: Look, here comes Thomas. I'll start pretending now
  • George Carlin: Thomas was sorry to see the engines looking miserable
  • Thomas: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Thomas: It's a beautiful day.
  • Gordon: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon
  • Gordon: But not for James.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: He's sick.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon.
  • James: Yes he is. I mean I am.
  • George Carlin: Stuttered James.
  • James: I don't feel well at all.
  • Thomas: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas kindly.
  • Thomas: I'll help out if you're ill.
  • George Carlin: Gordon and James sniggered quietly to each other. Some of James' cars were coupled behind Thomas and he steamed away to the quarry. The cars were still cross.
  • Freight Cars: We couldn't pay James back for bumping us, so we'll play tricks on Thomas instead. One engine is as good as another.
  • George Carlin: But Thomas didn't hear them. He collected all the stone from the quarry and set off back to the junction. Danger lay ahead.
  • Freight Cars: Now for our plan!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the cars.
  • Freight Cars: Go faster, go faster!
  • George Carlin: They pushed Thomas over the switches.
  • Thomas' Driver: Slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas' driver and applied the brakes. Poor Thomas stood dazed and surprised in the muddy pool, as a toad eyed in suspiciously.
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Thomas.
  • Thomas: The day started so well too.
  • George Carlin: Duck pulled away the cars, and Edward helped Thomas back to the junction. Suddenly, Thomas remembered the missing tar. He told Edward all about him.
  • Edward: That's strange.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: A car full of tar been left in my station. That must be it. Driver will make sure it gets to Bertie now.
  • George Carlin: Later, James spoke to Thomas.
  • James: I'm sorry about your accident.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • James: And so is Gordon. We didn't mean to get you into trouble.
  • Gordon: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: A near misunderstanding, Thomas, all's well that ends well.
  • George Carlin: Just then Bertie arrived. He looked much more cheerful.
  • Bertie: My road's being mended now.
  • Thomas: Oh, I am glad.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Bertie: Thanks for all you did.
  • George Carlin: Added Bertie.
  • Bertie: Now I know I can trust an engine especially his name was Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Gordon and James puffed silently away to the shed, but Thomas still had company.
  • Thomas: Well, well.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Thomas: What a day for surprises.
  • George Carlin: The toad who was looking forward to arrive home noisly agreed.

It's Great To Be An Engine

  • Children: (singing) Oh yes, it's great To be an engine And go steaming along, Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along All day.We're all so proud to be Famous engines And travel through the countryside. We're always brave when There are hills to climb. No mountain is too high! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as Your wheels go round Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. It doesn't matter Come rain or shine. There are always things For us to do. And in the cold cold Wintertime, We're ready. When you light the fire And stoke the boiler And we'll be there for you! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Feel the wind around you As you push along. Puff puff puffing along All day.
  • Girl: Just think - how wonderful it would be. To live on the magical Island of Sodor, Helping Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends All day long, It would be like a dream come true. If only I could be an engine too...
  • Children: (singing) Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as your Wheels go round. Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. Oh yes it's great To be an engine And go steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping and Puff puff puffing Steam around all day!

All At Sea

  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck like working at the harbour by the sea. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Duck and Percy puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Duck and Percy noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Duck: I wish i could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duck.
  • Percy: Engines can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Percy: Because engines can't float.
  • George Carlin: Duck still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Harold: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Harold.
  • Duck: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Harold: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case i'm needed.
  • Duck: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck.
  • Harold: Yes and beyond.
  • Percy: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Duck: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck.
  • Harold: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Percy lost patience.
  • Percy: Well, Duck, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Duck's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck's driver.
  • Duck's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Duck's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Harold's bringing him now. Come on.
  • Harold: Good to see you again, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Harold as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Harold: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise i will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Bertie got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Bertie: You look splendid flying along the line, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Bertie.
  • Bertie: No wonder they called you great western.
  • Duck: Thank you, Bertie. Percy's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Duck: Engines are happiest when their wheels are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Percy and Duck stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Duck: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: It's Harold. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Duck. His driver caught it.
  • Duck's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Harold's giving it to you as a present, Duck.
  • Duck: That was kind of Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • Duck: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what an engine needs.
  • George Carlin: Duck still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But i think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?
