  • George Carlin: It was a special holiday in the Island of Sodor. Rusty the Little Diesel was working harder than ever before. All the other engines were busy, too. Skarloey was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red dump truck, but he didn't look friendly like Rusty. The truck growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Monty: Stupid nonsense!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Monty: I wouldn't have brought them if I'd known. I'd have had a breakdown or something.
  • Skarloey: I'm glad you didn't.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You'd have spoiled their fun.
  • Monty: Bah. Enjoyment is all you engines live for. One day, rails will be ripped up!
  • George Carlin: Skarloey felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Skarloey: We have a friend called Rusty, and he's a diesel, but he likes railways. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Monty: Heh.
  • George Carlin: Growled the truck.
  • Monty: I know Rusty. He's too small in size to be of any use.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey took no notice.
  • Skarloey: That truck is silly.
  • George Carlin: He thought, as he puffed away. At the junction, Skarloey told Ferdinald all about him.
  • Ferdinald: I call him Monty!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Ferdinald, then he puffed happily away. But that afternoon, when the two enginess met again, Ferdinald was no longer laughing.
  • Ferdinald: Monty's friend has come.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ferdinald: He's rude, too! He's taking Monty's passengers home, so as to leave Monty free to steal ours.
  • Skarloey: But he can't!
  • George Carlin: Objected Skarloey.
  • Ferdinald: Monty says he can get them to the station before us.
  • Skarloey: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: It's much further by road.
  • Ferdinald: Yes,
  • George Carlin: Continued Ferdinald.
  • Ferdinald: But Monty says he knows a shortcut!
  • George Carlin: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Skarloey: Where are the passengers?
  • George Carlin: They wondered.
  • Ferdinald: Look!
  • George Carlin: Shrilled Ferdinald.
  • Ferdinald: Look at Monty! He's a mean, big deceiver!
  • George Carlin: Monty was wearing a large sign, saying, 'Railway Truck".
  • Monty: Yeah, boo, snubs!
  • George Carlin: He jeered, as he roared away.
  • Skarloey: Come on,
  • George Carlin: Puffed Skarloey to his coaches,
  • Skarloey: Let's see what he's up to!
  • George Carlin: Skarloey wanted to pay Monty out, but he wasn't sure how. Then, in the distance, Skarloey saw a red flag. That meant 'Danger'. The line here crosses a narrow road, and there was Monty, wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Skarloey: So this was his shortcut!
  • George Carlin: Chucked Skarloey.
  • Passengers: He tricked us!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Monty's passengers.
  • Passengers: He said he was an Railway Truck, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets! He wanted us to think railways were no good!
  • George Carlin: Skarloey's driver examined the bridge.
  • Skarloey's Driver: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Skarloey: Passengers are urgent.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Skarloey. Luigi slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Monty wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Monty: Stop!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Monty: It might fall on me!
  • Skarloey: That would serve you right for telling lies.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey, but the bridge didn't collapse. Skarloey made good time, and all the passengers caught their rides. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately, Monty and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse now, and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listen to them, anyway.
