  • Ringo Starr: Thomas is a tank engine who lives at the big station of the Island of Sodor. He's a cheeky little engine with six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler and a short stumpy dome. He's a fussy little engine too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big engines can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big engines can go on rest. Thomas thinks no engine works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Gordon the biggest and proudest engine of all. Thomas likes to tease Gordon with his whistle.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • Ringo Starr: One day after pulling the big express, Gordon had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Thomas came up in his cheeky way.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • Ringo Starr: And off Thomas ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Gordon thought how he can back at Thomas. One morning, Thomas wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Thomas started.
  • Thomas: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Gordon was waiting.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Thomas: Hurry yourself.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Thomas. Gordon the proud engine began making his plan to teach Thomas a lesson for teasing him. Almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Gordon reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Gordon: Get in quickly, please!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled. Thomas usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Gordon start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Thomas. Gordon's chance had come.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Gordon to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Thomas, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Gordon.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the coaches. Poor Thomas was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his wheels hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Thomas: I shall never be the same again.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly.
  • Thomas: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • Ringo Starr: At last, they stopped at the station. Thomas was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Gordon: Well, little Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Thomas couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink.
  • Thomas: Maybe I don't have to tease Gordon to feel important.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Edward Helps Out)
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Edward was in the shed where he live with the other engines. They were all bigger than Edward and boasted about it.
  • Gordon: The driver won't choose you again.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wants strong engines like us.
  • Ringo Starr: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Edward.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Edward: Oh yes, please.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward. So they lit his fire, made lots of steam and Edward puff away. The other engines were very cross of being left behind. Edward worked hard all day. The coaches thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased.
  • Edward: I'm going out again tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Edward told the other engines that night.
  • Edward: What do you think at that?
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy that he fell asleep at once. Next morning, Edward woke up to find nothing had change. Gordon was still boasting.
  • Gordon: You watch me, little Edward, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you. Goodbye, little Edward. Look out for me this afternoon.
  • Ringo Starr: Edward went off to do some shunting. He like shunting. It was fun playing with freight cars. He would come out quietly and gave them a push. Then he would stop, and the silly freight cars will go bump into the each other.
  • Cars: Oh!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Cars: Whatever is happening?
  • Ringo Starr: Edward played till there were no more freight cars. Then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. Gordon was very cross. Instead of pulling shiny new coaches, he was pulling a very dirty freight train.
  • Gordon: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • Ringo Starr: Edward laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Gordon can't get up the hill.
  • Ringo Starr: The porter called to Edward's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Edward and push him please?
  • Ringo Starr: They found Gordon halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severly.
  • Driver: You're not trying.
  • Gordon: I can't do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The noisy freight cars hold an engine back so!
  • Ringo Starr: Edward's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Gordon: No use at all!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Edward's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: No good.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Gordon. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Gordon: I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Gordon.
  • Edward: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Edward. Edward pushed and puffed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Gordon found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Gordon: I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!
  • Ringo Starr: He said proudly. He forgot all about kind Edward and didn't say thank you. Edward was left out of breath and far behind, but he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink and the driver said.
  • Driver: I'll get out my paint tomorrow, and give you your beautiful coat of blue with red stripes, then you'll be the smartest engine in the shed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Come Out Henry)
  • Ringo Starr: Once an engine attached to a train was afraid of a few drops of rain. It went into a tunnel and squeaked through its funnel, and wouldn't come out again.
  • (Edward's whistle blows)
  • Ringo Starr: The engine's name is Henry. His driver and fireman argued with him, but he would not move.
  • Henry: The rain would spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • (The conductor's whistle blowing)
  • Ringo Starr: The conductor blew his whistle till he had no more breath, and waved his flag till his arms ached, but Henry still stayed in the tunnel and blew steam at him.
  • Henry: I'm not going to spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Then, along came Sir Topham Hatt, the man of charge of all the engines on the Island of Sodor.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We will pull you out.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt. But Henry only blew steam at him. Everyone pulled except Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Because, (clears his throat)
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...my doctor has forbidden me to pull.
  • Ringo Starr: But still, Henry stayed in the tunnel. Then, they tried pushing from the other end. Sir Topham Hatt said...
  • Sir Topham Hatt; One, two, three, push!
  • Ringo Starr: ...but he didn't help.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: (clears his throat) My doctor has forbbiden me to push.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. They pushed, and pushed, and pushed, but still, Henry stayed in the tunnel. At last, Thomas came along. The conductor waved his red flag and stopped him. Everyone argued with Henry.
  • Everyone: Look, it has stopped raining.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Henry: Yes, but it will began again soon.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Henry.
  • Henry: And what will become with green paint with red stripes then?
  • (Thomas' whistle blows)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas pushed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could, but still Henry stayed in the tunnel. Eventually, even Sir Topham Hatt gave up.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We shall take away your rails...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...and leave you here until you're ready to come out of the tunnel.
  • Ringo Starr: They took up the old rails, and built a wall in front of Henry, so the other engines wouldn't bump into him. All Henry could do was to watch the trains rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad, because he thought no one would see his lovely green paint and red stripes again. As time went on, Edward and Gordon would often pass by. Edward would say...
  • Edward: Peep, peep! Hello!
  • Ringo Starr: And Gordon would say...
  • Gordon: Poop, poop, poop! Serves you right!
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Henry had no steam to answer. His fire had gone out. Soot and dirt from the tunnel had spoilt his lovely green paint with red stripes anyway. How long do you think Henry would stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain, but then decides to journey out again?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Henry To The Rescue)
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon always pull the big express. He was proud of being the only engine strong enough to do so. It was full of important people like Sir Topham Hatt and Gordon will see how fast he can go.
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, tricktey-trock!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the coaches. In a minute, Gordon will see the tunnel where Henry stood bricked up and lonely.
  • Henry: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Henry.
  • Henry: Why did I worried about rain spoiling my lovely coat of paint? I'd like to come out of the tunnel.
  • Ringo Starr: But Henry didn't know how to ask.
  • Gordon: I'm going to poop poop at Henry.
  • Ringo Starr: He was almost there when... (hiss) And there was proud Gordon going slower and slower in a cloud of steam. His driver stopped the train.
  • Gordon: What has happen to me?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Gordon.
  • Gordon: I feel so weak.
  • Driver: You burst your safety valves.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Driver: You can't pull the train anymore.
  • Gordon: Oh dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Henry laughing at me.
  • Ringo Starr: Everyone came to see Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmph.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: These big engines are always causing me trouble. Send for another engine at once.
  • Ringo Starr: While the conductor went to find one, they uncoupled Gordon who had enough puff to slink on the siding out of the way. Edward was the only engine left.
  • Edward: I'll come and try.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Gordon: Hmph.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's no use. Edward can't push the train.
  • Ringo Starr: The kind Edward puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed but he couldn't move the heavy coaches.
  • Gordon: I told you so.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Why not let Henry try?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will. Will you help pull this train, Henry?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Henry. When Henry had got up steam, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs.
  • Henry: Ooh, I'm stiffed, I'm stiffed.
  • Ringo Starr: He groaned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Have a run to ease your joints and find a turntable.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt. When Henry came back, he felt much better. Then they coupled him up.
  • Edward: Peep peep.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: So am I. Pull hard, we'll do it! Pull hard, we'll do it!
  • Ringo Starr: They puffed together.
  • Edward: We've done it together! We've done it together!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Edward and Henry.
  • Coaches: You've done it hurray! You've done it hurray!
  • Ringo Starr: Sang the coaches. Everyone was excited. Sir Topham Hatt leaned out on the window to wave at Edward and Henry. But the train was going so fast, that his hat blew off into a field where a goat ated for tea. They never stopped til they came to the station at the end of the line. The passengers all said thank you, and Sir Topham Hatt promised Henry a new coat of paint. One their way home, Edward and Henry helped Gordon back to the shed. All three engines are now great friend. Henry doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his paint nicely not to run into tunnels, but to ask his driver to rub him down when the day's work was over.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Big Day For Thomas)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas the Tank Engine was grumbling to the other engines.
  • Thomas: I spent my time pulling coaches about ready for you to take out on journeys.
  • Ringo Starr: The other engines laughed.
  • Thomas: Why can't I pull passenger trains too?
  • Gordon: You're too impatient.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Gordon: You'd be sure to leave something behind.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll show you.
  • Ringo Starr: One night, he and Henry were alone. Henry was ill. The men worked hard, but he didn't get better. He felt just as bad next morning. Henry usually pull the first train and Thomas had to get his coaches ready.
  • Thomas: If Henry is ill.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Thomas: Perhaps I shall pull his train.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas ran off to find the coaches.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • Ringo Starr: He fussed.
  • Coaches: There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time!
  • Ringo Starr: They grumbled. Thomas took them to the platform and wanted to run round at once. But his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Driver: Don't be impatient, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas waited and waited. The people got in, the conductor and stationmaster walked up and down, the porter banged the doors and still Henry didn't come. Thomas got more and more excited. Sir Topham Hatt came to see what was the matter, and the conductor and stationmaster told him about Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Find another engine.
  • Ringo Starr: He ordered.
  • Both: There's only Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You'll have to do it then, Thomas. Be quick now.
  • Ringo Starr: So Thomas ran round to the front and back down on the coaches ready to start.
  • Driver: Let's not be impatient.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll wait till everything was ready.
  • Ringo Starr: But Thomas was too excited to listen. What happened then, no one knows. Perhaps they forgot to couple Thomas to the train, or perhaps the Driver pulled the leather by mistake. Anyhow, Thomas started without his coaches. As the pass the signal tower, men waved and shouted, but he didn't stop.
  • Thomas: They're waving because I'm such a splendid engine.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought importantly.
  • Thomas: Henry says it's hard to pull trains, but I think it's easy. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed, pretending to be like Gordon.
  • Thomas: People had never seen me pulling a train before. It's nice of them to wave.
  • Ringo Starr: And he whistled.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Then he came to a signal at danger.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Thomas: I must stop, and I was going so nicely too. What a nuisance signals are.
  • Ringo Starr: He blew an angry "Peep peep!" on his whistle. The signalman ran up.
  • Signalman: Hello, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Signalman: What are you doing here?
  • Thomas: I'm pulling the train.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can't you see?
  • Signalman: Where are your coaches then?
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas looked back.
  • Thomas: Why bless me.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Thomas: If we hadn't leave them behind.
  • Signalman: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You better go quickly and fetch them.
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Thomas was so sad he nearly cried.
  • Driver: Cheer up.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's go back quickly and try again.
  • Ringo Starr: At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Sir Topham Hatt what a bad railway it was. But when Thomas came back, they saw how sad he was and couldn't be cross. He was coupled to the train, and this time he really pulled it. Afterwards, the other engines laughed at Thomas and said...
  • Henry: Look! There's Thomas, who wanted to pull the train, but forgot about the coaches.
  • Ringo Starr: But Thomas had already learned, not to make the same mistake again.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Trouble For Thomas)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas the Tank Engine wouldn't stop being a nuisances. Night after night, he kept the other engines awake.
  • Thomas: I'm tired of pushing coaches. I wanna see the world.
  • Ringo Starr: The other engines didn't take much notice, for Thomas was a little engine with a long tongue. But one night, Edward came to the shed. He was a kind little engine and felt sorry for Thomas.
  • Edward: I've got some freight cars to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, i'll push coaches in the yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: That would be nice.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, Edward and Thomas asked their drivers, and when they said "yes", Thomas ran off happily to find freight cars. Now the freight cars were silly and noisy. They talked a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And i'm sorry to say they play tricks on an engine who is not used to them. Edward knew all about the freight cars. He warned Thomas to be careful but Thomas was too excited to listen. The shunter fastened the coupling and when the signal dropped, Thomas was ready. The conductor blew his whistle.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Thomas and started off. But the freight cars weren't ready.
  • Freight Cars: Oh! Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: They screamed.
  • Freight Cars: Wait, Thomas, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: But Thomas would't wait.
  • Thomas: Come on come on.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Freight Cars: All right, all right, don't fuss! All right, don't fuss!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the cars. Thomas began going faster and faster.
  • Thomas: Whee!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled, as he rush through Henry's tunnel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Thomas. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the cars grew crosser and crosser. At last Thomas slowed down as he came to Gordon's Hill.
  • Thomas' Driver: Steady, now, steady.
  • Ringo Starr: Warned the driver, as he reach the top. He began to put on the brakes.
  • Thomas: We're stopping, we're stopping!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Thomas.
  • Freight Cars: No, no, no!
  • Ringo Starr: Answered the cars bumping them to each other.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • Ringo Starr: Before the driver could stop them they had pushed Thomas down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind them. Poor Thomas tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast.
  • Thomas: Stop pushing, stop pushing!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. But the cars took no notice.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • Ringo Starr: They giggled in their silly way.
  • Thomas: There's the station! Oh dear, what shall I do?
  • Ringo Starr: He cried. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Thomas shut his eyes.
  • Thomas: I must stop!
  • Ringo Starr: When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was...Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What are you doing here, Thomas?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Thomas: I brought Edward's freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas answered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why did you come so fast?
  • Thomas: I didn't mean to. I was pushed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've got a lot to learn about freight cars, Thomas. After pushing them about here for a few weeks you'll know almost as much about them as Edward. Then you'll be a Really Useful Engine.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Saves The Day)
  • Ringo Starr: Every day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the station to catch his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: He always said to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't let the silly freight cars tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Ringo Starr: There were lots of freight cars and Thomas worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • Ringo Starr: He told Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Thomas was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an engine whistling.
  • James: Help! Help!
  • Ringo Starr: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The engine was James and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • James: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • Ringo Starr: He panted.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the freight cars. Still whistling...
  • James: Help! Help!
  • Ringo Starr: Poor James disappeared.
  • Thomas: I like to teach those freight cars a lesson.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas the Tank Engine.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • Ringo Starr: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: James is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas was coupled on and off they went. Thomas worked his hardest.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed. He wasn't predenting to be like Gordon. He really meant it.
  • Thomas: Bother those freight cars and their tricks. I hope poor James isn't hurt.
  • Ringo Starr: James' driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • James' Driver and Fireman: Never mind James.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • James' Driver and Fireman: It was those silly freight cars and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: They groaned.
  • Thomas: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Thomas. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Thomas: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • Ringo Starr: He told the freight cars. And they answered...
  • Freight Cars: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • Ringo Starr: They left the broken cars. Then with two cranes they put James back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift James away from the field. A surprised Thomas watches as James is put back to the rails)
  • Ringo Starr: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Thomas helped him back to the shed. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I heard all about it and i'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful engine. James shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Thomas: Oh thank you sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas. Now Thomas is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Annie and Clarabel. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Edward and Henry stop quite often and tell him the news. Gordon is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Gordon: Poop Poop.
  • Ringo Starr: And Thomas always whistles...
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • Ringo Starr: In return.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (The story comes to a still and we go to the end credits)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, we fade to the 1988-1992 Strand VCI Entertainment logo)
