  • (The Thomas Season 7 intro is shown and we begin 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!
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Something In The Air)
  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Thomas was at the keyside 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' 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 rude 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Buffer Bother)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben are quarry engines. They are twins. They play together, they shunt freight cars together. They even get up to naughtyness together. Whenever you find Bill you will find Ben. Whether you find Ben you will find Bill. Sir Topham Hatt had come to inspect his quarry engines. He found that Mavis and Bill were in fine working order.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Unfortunately, Ben.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your buffers are damaged. You must report to the engine works inmediately for a new set of buffers. Mavis you will have to work with Bill until Ben returns.
  • Mavis: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis and Sir Topham Hatt drove away. Ben was happy.
  • Ben: I'm going to get new buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: He gloated to Bill.
  • Bill: Well I should get new buffers too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill complained.
  • Bill: We're twins. We do everything together.
  • Ben: But you don't need new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben teased.
  • Bill: You're getting new buffers because you're getting clumsy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill enviously.
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Mavis: Will you two stop being crackpots?
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis scolded.
  • Mavis: Now come on, Bill, we've got work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben couldn't wait to get new buffers. Later, Bill watched as Ben chuffed away to the engine works. He was green with envy, he wanted new buffers too. Bill returned to his job but he wasn't thinking about work. All he could think about was Ben's new buffers.
  • (Bill and the flatbed run into some buffers)
  • Bill: Ooh!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: (sneezes)
  • Mavis: Be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: And stop thinking about Ben's new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill tried thinking about birds, he tried thinking about trees, he tried thinking about anything but Ben and his brand new buffers. But it didn't work.
  • Bill: I want new buffers too!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Mavis: Just be happy you're in good working order.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Bill: It's not fair!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill huffed and he wheeshed soot all over Mavis.
  • Mavis: Bill!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Mavis.
  • Bill: Oops, sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill. Bill tried his best to get with his work. But the troublesome trucks have spotted a chance for a tease.
  • Trucks: Poor poor Bill, he works, he suffers, while Ben his twin gets brand new buffers!
  • Bill: I might not have new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Bill: But I still know how to biff troublesome trucks.
  • Mavis: No!
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis cried.
  • (Bill pushes a troublesome truck and accidentally falls into a pit)
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late. Ben puffed into the quarry with his shiny new buffers just in time to hear...
  • Bill: Bust my buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Bill.
  • Ben: I think you have.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived and saw Bill's broken buffers, he was not happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You behaved badly Bill.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you have anything to say for yourself?
  • Bill: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Before you get new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt continued.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to think what it means to be a responsible reliable engine.
  • Bill: Yes Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Answered Bill weakly. After Sir Topham Hatt left, Ben rolled up to Bill with his new buffers gleaming.
  • Bill: They are nice buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill said.
  • Ben: Thanks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben said.
  • Ben: I'm sorry I teased you.
  • Bill: That's all right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I was naughty too.
  • Ben: Of course you are.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: We're twins.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Happy Ever After)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor loved holiday time. Percy was taking some freight cars to the docks. Terence the Tractor was working at a field close to the line.
  • Terence: Hello, Percy. Nice day for it, isn't it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was confused.
  • Percy: Nice day for what?
  • Terence: Mrs. Kyndley's daughter is getting married today.
  • Percy: Oh yes. Of course.
  • Alec Baldwin: But when Percy saw Mrs. Kyndley, she was standing by her gate, waving a red flag.
  • Percy's Driver: What's the matter?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the driver.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: I've forgotten about the good luck package for the bride.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was puzzled.
  • Percy: What's a good luck package?
  • Mrs. Kyndley: It must contain something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Can you help please?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy didn't know how but his driver was determined.
  • Percy's Driver: We'll certainly try.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy had to stop at Edward's station to take on water.
  • Percy: We've got to find a good luck package. Do you know what that is?
  • Edward: Oh, yes indeed. Something old, something new...
  • Percy: Something borrowed and something blue.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy cut in.
  • Percy: But where do we find them?
  • Alec Baldwin: Edward smiled.
  • Edward: They're probably staring you in your smokebox. Now I had to take a special train. I'm taking guests to the wedding.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy arrived at the docks, he looked all around him. Suddenly he saw a freight car. It was loaded with a new set of shiny buffers.
  • Percy: Look! Look! There's something new.
  • Percy's Driver: They're quite right, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: Those buffers are just the ticket. I'll speak to the foreman.
  • Alec Baldwin: He returned shortly.
  • Percy's Driver: Foreman says we can use them and borrow the freight car as well. So that's two things we found. Something borrowed and something new.
  • Percy: But what about the other things?
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sure we'll find them too and we best be on our way.
  • Alec Baldwin: As Percy was shunting some freight cars into a siding, he heard a voice.
  • Old Slowcoach: Hello, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: There was Old Slowcoach who he and Thomas had rescued from scrap.
  • Percy: You're it!
  • Alec Baldwin: Squeaked Percy.
  • Old Slowcoach: I'm what it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the coach.
  • Percy: The something old for the wedding.
  • Alec Baldwin: And then Percy explained.
  • Percy: Now we only had to find something blue. But what and where?
  • Percy's Driver: You'll see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. At last, they reached the village where the wedding was to take place. Ahead was an old engine shed.
  • Percy's Driver: What did you think of this, Percy?
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his driver.
  • Percy: Well bust my boiler, Thomas. What are you doing here?
  • Thomas: I've to something blue.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Percy's Driver: Now, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: Mrs. Kyndley's chosen you to be her special guest.
  • Alec Baldwin: When the bride and groom left the church for the party, Sir Topham Hatt adressed everybody.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the good luck package. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. All found by Percy and his crew.
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines whistled and everyone cheered.
  • Bride: Thank you, Thomas and thank you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the bride.
  • Bride: It's the best good luck package ever.
  • Alec Baldwin: And she kissed Percy. Thomas laughed as Percy blushed bright red.
  • Percy: I love weddings.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy that night.
  • Thomas: Did you enjoy your kiss?
  • Alec Baldwin: But Percy was embarrassed and pretended to be asleep.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Jet Engine)
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon is a very proud steam engine. He's the fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. He loves speeding along his line with the wind blowing across his funnel.
  • Gordon's Driver: You've broken the record again.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: I'm the fastest!
  • Alec Baldwin: Boasted Gordon. But not all the engines were impressed.
  • James: Speed isn't everything.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James smugly.
  • Thomas: But being reliable and useful is.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Gordon: You slow engines will never understand.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Because you'll never go as fast as me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived with news of a special for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to collect the jet engine and take it to the airfield.
  • Percy: What's a jet engine?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A jet engine goes forward by pushing hot air out of its back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt explained.
  • Thomas: Just like you blow up a balloon and let it go.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's very fast.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas likes making special deliveries for Sir Topham Hatt. It makes him feel special. But secretly, he wished he could go as fast as Gordon, just once. Thomas arrived at the docks, excited to see the jet engine. It was shiny and modern and Thomas had never seen anything like it. He couldn't wait to start his journey, but Cranky was taking his time.
  • Thomas: Hurry up!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: This is a special special.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky did not like being told what to do especially by an engine. He became so cranky, that he was careless with his hook. His hook knocked the switch and the switch started the jet engine and the engine began to wind. The wind got louder and louder and louder.
  • Cranky: Uh, oh.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Cranky. Before he could say anything else, the jet engine was rocketing Thomas up the track.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. The driver tried to put on the brakes, but Thomas couldn't stop.
  • Thomas: Whoa boy!
  • Alec Baldwin: The stationmaster called ahead.
  • Signalman: Clear the lines, it's a runaway train!
  • Alec Baldwin: Signals were changed and points were switched. Thomas had never been so exciting. Thomas flew by James and rocketed past Henry and raced by Percy. They were amazed. Bertie was excited when he saw Thomas flying down the track.
  • Bertie: Want a race, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Beeped Bertie.
  • Bertie: Ah, never mind.
  • Alec Baldwin: No one had ever seen an engine go so fast. Gordon had no idea that Thomas racing along the main line.
  • Gordon: I am the fastest.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon proudly.
  • Thomas: Hi, Gordon. Bye Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon could not believe what he had seen. At last, the jet engine ran out of fuel and Thomas was back under his own power. He steamed gently back into Knapford Station.
  • Thomas: Sorry for overtaking you back there, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Gordon: Overtake me? I didn't notice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed.
  • Henry: You didn't notice the fastest engine on the Island of Sodor?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Thomas: Yes, I am the fastest.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas. Percy felt a little sorry for Gordon.
  • Percy: Gordon doesn't have to go as fast as a jet engine. He's a steam engine.
  • James: But he's still full of hot air.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled James and Gordon wheeshed away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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 critisize.
  • 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 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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 track 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 wooshed 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: Sighed Rheneas proudly. Rheneas didn't feel like a little engine anymore.
  • (Children cheer)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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. 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. Although Duncan didn't think so. Finally Duncan finished delivering the last of his freight cars.
  • (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.
