Middle Engine

  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt's engines love their work. Gordon likes pulling the express, Thomas likes his branch line and Percy likes taking the mail. But none of them likes being a middle engine. It's no fun being stuck in a middle. One morning, Percy was cheerfully collecting coal cars in the smelter's yards, where 'Arry and Bert worked. They like to play tricks on steam engines. Percy didn't want to fall for their tricks again. But before he knew it, he was stuck in the middle.
  • Percy: Oh, Bother!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Percy crossly.
  • 'Arry: Little green piggy in the middle!
  • Alec Baldwin: 'Arry teased. Percy's driver was cross. With coal cars in front and coal cars behind, Percy had to go slower. James was in the yards when Percy was steamed slowly by.
  • James: Ha, ha! It's Pokey Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: James laughed.
  • Percy: You wouldn't be laughing if you were stuck in the middle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy fumed. And he fumed all the way to the coaling plant. One by one, he shunted the coal cars onto the tipper's loading ramp and the coal was unloaded. Percy was not allowed to cross the loading ramp until the tipper had been turned off. It was against the rules. But as soon as his driver and fireman left, there was trouble. Henry arrived to pick up coal. He bumped into the coal cars and the coal cars bumped into Percy. Percy was pushed onto the loading ramp.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. Percy was hoist it up, tipped over and brought back down again. After Percy was load back down to the ground, the manager was very cross.
  • Manager: You have caused confusion and delay!
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Manager: I'll have to report this to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt spoke severely to Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm very disappointed you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You know it's against the rules to go on to the tipper's loading ramp.
  • Percy: Sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said sadly.
  • Percy: But it wasn't my fault. It's because those diesels made me a middle engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Never the less, you will shunt freight cars in the yard until I can get to the bottom of this.
  • James: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James, thinking that he can hear.
  • James: I can handle those diesels with bent buffers and a busted boiler!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then you will do Percy's run in the smelter.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James. The next day, James arrived at the smelter. He was determined to be tricked by 'Arry and Bert.
  • 'Arry: Hello, James.
  • Alec Baldwin: Oosed 'Arry.
  • 'Arry: Come to learn a thing or two from those who know?
  • James: Just get my freight cars ready and stay out of my way.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James importantly.
  • Bert: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bert chimed gricely. James cheerfully backed up to his freight cars. He was certain he had fooled 'Arry and Bert but he was wrong.
  • 'Arry: Little red piggy in the middle!
  • Alec Baldwin: Chortled 'Arry
  • Bert: Just like Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Jeered Bert.
  • James: I am not like Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed James.
  • James: I am not a middle engine and I am not moving.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he didn't. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news he sent Percy to fetch James. This made Percy happy. He buffered up to James and took him along with all the freight cars to the docks.
  • Manager: Right on time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the manager.
  • Manager: But what does that big red engine doing in the middle?
  • Percy: Learning.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy replied.
  • Manager: Learning what?
  • Percy: Learning to be a middle engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy laughed. James covered himself in steam hoping no one would recognize him, but it was good. It was only big red engine on the island and everyone knows his name is James!

Something In The Air

  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Thomas was at the quayside of a small village. Fish were being loaded into his cars. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Alec Baldwin: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, they saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • (Thomas heads for the damaged track)
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Alec Baldwin: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, I'll tell them to close the line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was waiting for Thomas' cars.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: It's the fish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Pah! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my cars hitched to my train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. He was steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What route is Henry taking tonight?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But I told you!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. And when he could, it was too late.
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Alec Baldwin: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them. You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Alec Baldwin: But there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Henry happily.

Twin Trouble

  • Alec Baldwin: Donald and Douglas are Scottish twin engines. They are practical peppery and proud. They nearly always work together. One day, Donald and Douglas were chuffing through the countryside hauling a heavy load. Down the line, Trevor the Traction Engine had been struggling with a big cartload of hay. Crossing the tracks, the cart's wheels have broken off. Then Trevor heard a whistle.
  • Trevor: Oh no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Trevor cried. Donald could see the cart.
  • Donald: Stop!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. Donald's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late.
  • (Donald crashes into the cart)
  • Alec Baldwin: Luckily, no one was hurt.
  • Donald: Stop being pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald snapped.
  • Douglas: Don't call me pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas snapped back.
  • Donald: You shouldn't have pushed me into the cart.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald.
  • Douglas: You pulled me you mean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Argued Douglas.
  • Donald: Didn't!
  • Douglas: Did!
  • Donald: Did not!
  • Douglas: Did too!
  • Alec Baldwin: Before long the track was cleared and Donald and Douglas were on their way. The twins were so cross they refuse to speak to each other for the rest of the day. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt needed an engine to help Duck at the smelter's yards.
  • Donald: May I go, sir?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald eagerly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I only need one engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not two.
  • Donald: I am only one engine, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: And I would like to help with Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was surprised but agreed. Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: Won't you miss one another?
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I know I missed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Douglas: I'll work better on my own.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Douglas.
  • Donald: I have work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald. At first, Donald enjoyed working with Duck. Then, things started to go wrong.
  • Donald: Did you shunt those freight cars on the other line?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald asked.
  • Duck: You said you wanted them on the other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck replied.
  • Donald: Not that other line, the other other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald was cross.
  • Donald: Douglas would have known what I've meant.
  • Alec Baldwin: He huffed. Douglas was working on his own. He chuffed dutifully through the beautiful countryside. But Douglas had no one to share it with. Although he tried not to he was beginning to miss his twin. That night, Douglas' Driver took him to see Donald.
  • Douglas: I was just passing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: Have you come to say you're sorry?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald sniffed. This made Douglas very cross.
  • Douglas: I've nothing to be sorry for.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and steamed away in a huff. The next day, Donald was in a bad mood. Duck could see he was getting too close for the buffers.
  • Duck: Look out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck shouted, but it was too late.
  • (Donald falls into a pit)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald's driver was very cross.
  • Donald's Driver: This would've happened if you were working with Douglas.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Donald knew he was right and Duck knew he couldn't pull Donald back onto the rails. So he went for help. Douglas was sadly finishing his work as Duck steamed into the depot.
  • Duck: Donald is in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Douglas: Donald in trouble?
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas cried.
  • Douglas: I'm on my way!
  • Alec Baldwin: And he steamed off as fast as he could. Douglas struggled and struggled, he finally pulled his twin gently back on to the tracks. He was relief Donald wasn't hurt.
  • Donald: Thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald said.
  • Donald: And I'm sorry.
  • Douglas: No, I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Insisted Donald.
  • Duck: Don't argue about who's sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: Just be glad you're back together.
  • Alec Baldwin: And they were.

Double Teething Troubles

  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben the Tank Engine twins work in the clay mines and quarries near brendam docks. Their work is important but they can be hot and dirty. Sometimes this makes the twins naughty. One morning, they were feeling very naughty indeed.
  • Bill: That's my line of cars!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Bill.
  • Ben: It's not, it's mine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Ben.
  • Ben: Yours it's over there.
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Their friend BoCo was worried.
  • BoCo: Stop quarreling you two or the only thing you had left to share is...
  • (Bill and Ben run into each other and derail)
  • BoCo: Trouble.
  • Bill: Silly!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Bill.
  • Ben: Silly yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Ben.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, behave yourselves.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's clear to me that we need another diesel to help out. There's only one available. He's new and key to make an impression.
  • BoCo: If I were you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered BoCo.
  • BoCo: I can back to work right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Sir Topham Hatt was having doubts about his own decision.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope the new diesel doesn't cause even more confusion. He's bound to have teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.
  • Derek: Oh, my grease and oil. I wasn't expecting this hill. Oh, what's that?
  • (Derek breaks down)
  • Alec Baldwin: BoCo came to the rescue.
  • Derek: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the diesel.
  • Derek: I'm all hot and bothered. I've got teething troubles, you know.
  • Alec Baldwin: The news soon spread.
  • Thomas: Apparently it's teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Thomas to Percy.
  • Percy: Hey, you two. This new diesel's got a toothache. Good luck.
  • Bill: Why does Percy want to wish us good luck?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Because he knows we'll need it. A diesel with a toothache must be the worst diesel of all.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then their manager spoke to them.
  • Manager: You will take your loads to the docks and rest there tonight. There's a lot of hard work to do tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: It was dark when the twins reached the docks. They left the freight cars by the key and scurried off to the shed.
  • Duck: You two looked glum.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Duck.
  • Bill: It's the new diesel's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Bill.
  • Bill: He's got a toothache.
  • Duck: He hasn't got a toothache he's got teething troubles. That means he's new and this causes some problems. In his case it's his cooling system.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, the twins heard an unfamiliar whistle.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, no! It's the new Diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: And it was.
  • Derek: Hello. I'll sort this train out. You take the front and I'll push 'em behind. Ha, ha. What fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: All went well as they set off. Then they came to a hill.
  • Bill: Come on, come on! Push harder, you silly diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted Bill. But the diesel couldn't push any harder.
  • Derek: (pants) I'm overheating again.
  • (Derek breaks down once again)
  • Bill: Oh, pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill.
  • Driver: You know what?
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Driver: Let's try and finish the journey anyway. It means we'll have to pull the diesel as well. Can you do it twins?
  • Bill and Ben: We'll try.
  • Alec Baldwin: And sure enough they could. That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Bill and Ben. I sent the new diesel back to the works. Can you manage alone?
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes sir.
  • Bill: BoCo.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Bill.
  • Bill: I'm sorry we were rude to you.
  • Ben: And...
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Ben.
  • Ben: The new diesel was really quite friendly.
  • Duck: And you know what friends do?
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Duck.
  • Bill and Ben: Know what?
  • Duck: They always say good night to each other.
  • Alec Baldwin: And so they did, but they still chattered about the diesel and his teething troubles all night long.

The World's Strongest Engine

  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor liked feeling responsible, reliable and really useful. They worked hard to compete their jobs on time. They don't like confusion and delay. But the troublesome trucks delighted mischief and their mischief causes trouble as poor Henry found out.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Henry has had an accident and been sent for repairs.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There are no other engines available. So Diesel will help until Henry returns.
  • Engines: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed the engines, but they weren't happy. The engines didn't like Diesel he was always being rude and always showing off.
  • Percy: I hope Henry's mended soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Thomas: He moves more trucks than three Diesels put together.
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed Thomas.
  • Gordon: Trucks are no one's friends.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon. The next day, Diesel was working at the docks.
  • Diesel: When Sir Topham Hatt sees how good I am.
  • Alec Baldwin: He bragged to the trucks.
  • Diesel: He'll get rid of steam engines once and for all.
  • Alec Baldwin: This gave the troublesome trucks an idea. As Diesel was shunting them together, they started to sing.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Is that all you can haul, Henry loads are longer, is that all you can haul, Henry must be stronger.
  • Alec Baldwin: Diesel was cross. He was sure to be stronger than Henry.
  • Diesel: I'll push you all at the same time.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. The trucks giggled.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Push us all, that's the longest, push us all, you'll be the strongest.
  • Diesel: That's me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Diesel.
  • Diesel: The world's strongest engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Diesel shunted five trucks together, then ten, then fifteen. Soon he had an enormous line of twenty trucks.
  • Percy: What's Diesel doing?
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: He thinks he's the world's strongest engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas. Diesel didn't know the shunters have the brakes on the trucks. The troublesome trucks knew, but encouraged Diesel to push anyway.
  • Troublesome Trucks: Push, push, push!
  • Alec Baldwin: Diesel pushed and he pushed and he pushed, but the trucks didn't move. So Diesel decided to pull the trucks instead.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Heave ho, heave ho, you can pull but we wont go.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sang the trucks. This made Diesel very cross. He pulled and he pulled and he pulled.
  • Diesel: Help!
  • (Diesel falls into a barge)
  • Diesel: Grease and oil!
  • Alec Baldwin: Diesel sulked as the trucks laughed and laughed. Sir Topham Hatt looked down crossly at Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I thought you would be a proper dockyard diesel, but I was wrong.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Can you make up for lost time, Henry?
  • Henry: Oh yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry replied happily. He backed up to the trucks and the shunters released the brakes. Then Henry pulled away as easy as pie.
  • (Henry pulls the lined cars away)
  • Alec Baldwin: And the engines cheered. Diesel was sent home in disgrace, but the engines had learned a lesson.
  • Thomas: Even troublesome trucks can do you a favor sometime.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Percy: Like getting rid of a smelly old Diesel.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Percy.

Jack Frost

  • Alec Baldwin: It was an icy day on the Island of Sodor. The engines were working very hard. They didn't mind the cold because they had toasting hot fireboxes to keep them warm. That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's a big freeze coming tonight.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James and Percy are to deliver extra coal to the stations.
  • James and Percy: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: They said eagerly and Sir Topham Hatt drove away.
  • Thomas: You better hurry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: Or scary Jack Frost might get you.
  • Percy: Who's Jack Frost?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy whistled nervously.
  • James: Don't be so silly.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed James.
  • James: Jack Frost is not scary.
  • Thomas: Yes he is.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's all white with a big spiky face.
  • James: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James. James knew Jack Frost wasn't scary, but poor Percy wasn't so sure. Percy shivered.
  • Percy: Jack Frost is not scary, Jack Frost is not scary, Jack Frost is not scary.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile, James puffed along his route.
  • James: Silly Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought.
  • James: All steamed up over Jack Frost.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy made his last delivery. The stationmaster was very pleased to see him.
  • Stationmaster: Oh, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Stationmaster: We need twice as much coal to last through this freeze.
  • Percy: Don't worry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Percy: This is my last stop, you can have mine.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Percy's driver parked him in a siding with only a lantern for company.
  • Percy: Do you think scary Jack Frost will find me?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy's Driver: Jack Frost not scary.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: And don't worry, Elizabeth will bring you some more coal in the morning.
  • Alec Baldwin: And then his driver and fireman went home to bed. Late at night, the icy wind howled. It started to snow. Soon, Percy's face was so cold, an icicle hung from his nose.
  • Percy: Oh, b-b-b-b-bother.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy stuttered, but it didn't sound like Percy. It was so cold, he could hardly make a sound. At last, James was on his way back to the sheds. In the fog, he saw shadows and strange and scary shapes.
  • James: Scary Jack Frost.
  • Alec Baldwin: He whispered nervously.
  • James: Pah!
  • Percy: Hello, J-J-J-J-James.
  • Alec Baldwin: Muttered Percy icily.
  • James: Scary Jack Frost!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried James and he raced away as fast as his wheels could carry him. He didn't stop until he got back to the sheds. The next morning, Elizabeth brought plenty of coal.
  • Elizabeth: Oh my dear.
  • Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth chuffed to Percy.
  • Elizabeth: It looks like Jack Frost really got you.
  • Alec Baldwin: The firelighter started Percy's fire. Soon, his ice mask melted away.
  • Percy: So scary Jack Frost is only frost.
  • Alec Baldwin: Tooted Percy happily and soon he was as warm as toast. When Percy arrived at the sheds, James was bragging to the other engines.
  • James: I saw scary Jack Frost last night.
  • Alec Baldwin: James huffed.
  • James: He even knows my name.
  • Percy: He also knows that you ran away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Percy and all the engines whistled including James. But Percy's was the loudest whistle of all.

Horrid Lorry

  • Alec Baldwin: It was a busy time at the docks. All the engines were working hard, pushing and pulling freight cars about. One day, Percy was late. Cranky the Crane was quick to criticize.
  • Cranky: These ships can't be kept waiting. They have important cargo. If they miss the tides, they will be delayed at the docks. You should look up to the ships and show more respect. You are after all only little.
  • Percy: We've got too much work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Percy.
  • Cranky: Then perhaps a lorry should do the job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was shocked. He told the other engines what Cranky had said.
  • James: Stuff and nonsense!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James.
  • Henry: We engines rerun this island.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Percy: What if a lorry does arrive?
  • Alec Baldwin: I'm afraid he did. Along with two more. Cranky was delighted.
  • Cranky: Hey you down there. Your jobs done now. These lorries are taking over. One of them wants to talk to you.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorry was very rude.
  • Lorry 2: What's that steaming lump of scrap iron doing here? Be off with you!
  • Percy: Scrap iron? Steaming scrap iron? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: A little later, Percy met Thomas and James. Another lorry was being rude to them. Then he saw Percy.
  • Lorry 1: Oh, look. It's a little green goblin on wheels. Ha! You'd be scrapped. Just you wait and see.
  • Thomas: Well, bust my boiler. What a horrid lorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Thomas.
  • James: Despicable!
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed James. The next engine to meet a lorry was Toby.
  • Lorry 2: Well, well, well. No wonder this railway's a mess. You belong into this museum, not working at the quarry.
  • Toby: I might look old, but I'm really useful.
  • Lorry 2: Useful? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: Just you toodle off.
  • Toby: Toodle?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Spluttered Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: Come on, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Interrupted his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: Don't bother to argue with him. We'll go to the flour mill instead.
  • Alec Baldwin: But when they arrived at the flour mill, Toby was shocked to see yet another lorry.
  • Toby: What are you doing here?
  • Lorry 3: We three are doing your work now. You're too slow.
  • Alec Baldwin: The foreman spoke to Toby's driver.
  • Foreman: I'm sorry. Times are changing I'm afraid.
  • Toby's Driver: Toby might me old.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: But he's reliable. Come on, Toby. We'll go to the farms. They'll still use us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby trundled sadly away. His railway ran through a narrow gorge. But vehicles had take a steep and dangerous road. When Toby arrived, he saw the lorry from the quarry again. It was loaded with rock.
  • Toby: That lorry's in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thought Toby. And he was.
  • (Lorry 2 falls down the gorge and towards the ground leaving Toby speechless)
  • Alec Baldwin: The driver was thrown clear.
  • Driver: Rotten roads.
  • Alec Baldwin: He muttered. The wrecked lorry was taking to the docks. Percy looked at the lorry.
  • Percy: What's this lump of steaming scrap iron?
  • Alec Baldwin: He teased.
  • Lorry 2: I'll be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: So you can wipe that silly smile off your smokebox.
  • Percy: Ha!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy and wheeshed him loudly. Then Butch the breakdown vehicle arrived. He was towing the lorry from the flour mill.
  • Toby's Driver: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby's driver.
  • Cander: He was overloaded with flour.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cander replied.
  • Cander: And he broke down.
  • Toby: Not very useful now are you?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Lorries: Grr!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorries. Then James whistled excitedly.
  • James: They're bringing in the third lorry on a barge. What happened to that one?
  • Alec Baldwin: James asked.
  • Tow Truck Man: Stupid Lorry was reversing and fell straight into the sea.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Tow Truck Man. Later, Thomas arrived. He looked at the three lorries and laughed.
  • Thomas: Well, well, well. The brothers grimm. Smashed, broken and sunk.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorries didn't return, and the engines now work even harder to make sure they'll ever learn.

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)

Rheneas and The Roller Coaster

  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas is a brave little engine who enjoys working in the mountains on the Island of Sodor. Even though he is little, Rheneas loves feeling like a really useful engine. One day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Rheneas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have a very important job to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Rheneas: An important job!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: Oh, thank you sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are to take some school children up into the mountains. You must make sure they have a wonderful time and are back in time for their lunch.
  • Rheneas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rheneas. But he was worried. He wasn't sure he was good enough to make the trip special. When Rheneas arrived at the station, the children and the teacher were waiting on the platform.
  • Rheneas: How am I going to make the children's day really special?
  • Michael Brandon: He said to Rusty.
  • Rusty: You know the mountains better than any engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rusty. But Rheneas wasn't sure his best will be exciting enough. He felt like a very little engine indeed. Sir Topham Hatt had told Rheneas' driver to point out all the beautiful sights along the way.
  • Rheneas' Driver: This is Sodor Castle.
  • Michael Brandon: Called his driver.
  • Rheneas' Driver: It is very special and important.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas saw the castle everyday. He didn't think it was special or important.
  • Rheneas: I must think of something exciting to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought to himself.
  • Rheneas' Driver: This is the valley view.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Rheneas' Driver: And here's the viaduct.
  • Children: (gasp)
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas was still unhappy. The trip didn't seem wonderful to him at all.
  • Rheneas: Must be special! Must be special.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought. Meanwhile, Rusty was working on the rocky ridge line. Heavy rains have washed the ground from under the road.
  • Foreman: These lines are too bumpy and uneven.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: The track must be closed for repairs.
  • Rheneas: Must be special. Must be special.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas was still trying to think of something that will make the children's trip special. He didn't know the linesmen have forgotten to switch the points. Suddenly, Rheneas was on the wrong track.
  • Rheneas: Oh no! This line is closed for repairs. Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Rusty: Be careful!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rusty.
  • Rusty: The tracks are very bumpy!
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas whooshed down the mountain like a roller coaster. The children cheered. Rheneas puffed up the rocky ridge with all his might. His coach clattered and bumped and bounced along behind. And the children oooed and aaaed. Rheneas huffed and puffed as hard as he could. He steamed across the trestle bridge. He was going so fast the teacher nearly lost her hat. Rheneas splashed under a waterfall, the children laughed happily and the teacher covered her eyes. At last, they could see the station. Rheneas was very tired and worried.
  • Rheneas: What will Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • Teacher: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Said the teacher.
  • Teacher: Just in time for lunch.
  • Children: It was the best school trip ever!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the children. Sir Topham Hatt wasn't cross with Rheneas, he was happy too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You gave the children a wonderful trip. You really are a very useful engine.
  • Rheneas: Oh, thank you sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rheneas proudly. Rheneas didn't feel like a little engine anymore.

Faulty Whistles

  • Alec Baldwin: It was early morning on the Island of Sodor. Duncan was waiting for Peter Sam who was bringing some freight cars for him to take to strawberry grove. Duncan was also to take the headmaster and the new organ. While they waited, the headmaster played a lively tune. Peter Sam had steamed all through the night to bring Duncan his wagons. But as he approached the junction, a low hanging branch knocked his whistle off. This meant he couldn't work until he got a new one.
  • Peter Sam: I can't run on the tracks without my whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: That would be dangerous.
  • Duncan: An engine's not an engine without a whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Boasted Duncan and just to prove it, he let off a big blast. But the rest of the engines just ignored him. Duncan chuffed away in a big huff. He was cross.
  • Duncan: They're jealous of my fine whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan puffed as he steamed through the countryside. He whistled at some sheep. But they were too busy eating grass to take notice.
  • Duncan: Bah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan.
  • Duncan: I need to whistle louder and longer next time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Soon, Duncan approached the level crossing where Elizabeth the Quarry Truck waited with a farmer's prized bull. This time, Duncan as loud and as long as he could.
  • Bull: (roars)
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the bull.
  • Elizabeth: Stop that nonsense, Duncan.
  • Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth called. Duncan carried on cheerfully down the track. But he hadn't noticed his whistle had come loose. Then, Duncan saw Terence plowing a field.
  • Duncan: He'll get the loudest and longest whistle yet.
  • Alec Baldwin: He chortled to himself. And he blew so hard, his whistle shot off like a mighty rocket and landed out of sight. Everyone searched for Duncan's whistle but it was nowhere to be seen.
  • Duncan's Driver: We're stuck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: We can't move without a whistle. It would be too dangerous.
  • Headmaster: Leave it to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: The headmaster said. For the rest of the day, Duncan didn't make a sound. But the headmaster's organ did.
  • (Organ toots)
  • Alec Baldwin: As Duncan delivered his freight cars, the headmaster tooted the organ at every crossing and every stop. It alerted everyone just as a whistle would.
  • (Organ toots again)
  • Alec Baldwin: Although Duncan didn't think so.
  • (Organ toots one more)
  • Alec Baldwin: Finally Duncan finished delivering the last of his freight cars.
  • (Organ gets one final toot)
  • (She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain playing on organ)
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan steamed quietly back to the junction as the headmaster played the organ.
  • Rusty: Look.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty teased.
  • Rusty: It's Duncan the musical engine.
  • Rheneas: Let's whistle along.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Rheneas.
  • Skarloey: (whistles)
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled Skarloey. But Peter Sam who had a shiny new whistle felt sorry for Duncan.
  • Peter Sam: You really did well to deliver your goods without a whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Duncan: Did you think so?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan cheering up a bit.
  • Peter Sam: Absolutely.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: Even though an engine's not an engine without a whistle.
  • Headmaster: Or an organ.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled the headmaster and he tooted the organ. And all the engines tooted back except Duncan, who just grinned.
