Transcript

  • (We open this CD with the Thomas Season 1-7 theme and then the start of Thomas and The Conductor)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas the Tank Engine is very proud of his branch line. He thinks it's the most important part of the whole railway. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel agree with him. Annie could only take passengers but Clarabel can take passengers, luggage and the conductor. They were both old and need new paint but Thomas loves them very much. As they run backwards and forwards along the line, they sing songs to each other. When Thomas starts from the station he sings...
  • Thomas: Oh, come along, we're rather late. Oh, come along, we're rather late.
  • Ringo Starr: And the coaches sang...
  • Annie and Clarabel: We're coming along. We're coming along.
  • Ringo Starr: They don't mind that Thomas says to them because he know he was trying to please Sir Topham Hatt, and to know to that if Thomas is cross, he's not cross with them. One day, they have to wait for Henry's train which made Thomas very cross.
  • Thomas: How could I run my line properly if Henry is always late? He doesn't realize that Sir Topham Hatt depends on me.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas whistled impatiently. He wanted to leave, but he have to wait for Henry's passengers. At last Henry came.
  • Thomas: Where have you been, lazybones?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Thomas.
  • Henry: Oh dear, my system is out of order. No one understands my case. You don't know what I suffer.
  • Ringo Starr: Moaned Henry.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're too slow. You need exercise.
  • Ringo Starr: The conductor blew his whistle and Thomas started so quickly that he left him behind. The conductor waved his red flag to stop Thomas, but he was on his way steaming out of the station.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Thomas, but Clarabel didn't want to come.
  • Clarabel: I've lost my nice conductor, I've lose my nice conductor.
  • Ringo Starr: She sobbed. Annie tried to tell Thomas what had happened.
  • Annie: We haven't a conductor, we haven't a conductor!
  • Ringo Starr: But he was hurrying and wouldn't listen. Annie and Clarabel tried to put on their brakes, but they couldn't without their conductor.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Where's our conductor? Where's our conductor?
  • Ringo Starr: They cried, but Thomas didn't stop till they came to a signal.
  • Thomas: Bother that signal.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • Driver: I don't know.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: The conductor will tell us in a minute.
  • Ringo Satrr: They waited and waited but the conductor didn't come.
  • Thomas: Peep peep peep, where's the conductor?
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We've left him behind!
  • Ringo Starr: Sobbed Annie and Clarabel together. Everyone looked, and there he was running as fast as he could along the line, with his flag on one hand and his whistle in the other. He was very hot, so he had a drink, and told them all about it.
  • Thomas: I'm very sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Thomas.
  • Conductor: We all made mistakes.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the conductor.
  • Conductor: Look, the signal's down. We can go. Let's make up for lost time.
  • Ringo Starr: Annie and Clarabel were so pleased to have their conductor again, but they sang...
  • Annie and Clarabel: As fast as you like, as fast as you like!
  • Ringo Starr: ...to Thomas all the way. They reached the end of the line quicker than ever before.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Tenders and Turntables)
  • Ringo Starr: Henry and Gordon were lonely when Thomas left the yard to run his branch line. They missed him very much. They had more work to do and had to fetch some more coaches. The big engines thought they were too important to fetch coaches. James grumbled too.
  • Henry: We get no rest, we get no rest!
  • Ringo Starr: They all complained. But the coaches only laughed.
  • Coaches: You're lazy and slack, you're lazy and slack!
  • Ringo Starr: They answered. All together, the engines were causing Sir Topham Hatt a great deal of trouble. The big stations both ends on the line each have a turntable. Sir Topham Hatt had made them so that the tender engines can be turned round because it is dangerous for them to go fast and backwards. Little tank engines like Thomas don't need turntables. They can go just as well backwards as forwards. But to hear Gordon talk, he would've thought that Sir Topham Hatt had given him a tender just to show how important he was.
  • Gordon: You don't understand, little Thomas! We Tender Engines have a position to keep up. It doesn't matter where you go, but we are important, and for Sir Topham Hatt to make us shunt freight cars, fetch coaches and go on some of those dirty sidings it's, it's, well, it's not the proper thing!
  • Thomas: It's okay. You will have friends this time.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas chuckled and went off with Annie and Clarabel.
  • Gordon: Very disgraceful!
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon hissed as he ran backwards to the turntable. The turntable was in the windy place close to the sea, and he was not on it just right, he put amount of balance and made a difficult to turn. Today, Gordon was in the bad temper, and the wind was blowing fiercly. His driver tried to make him stop in the right place but Gordon wasn't trying. The fireman tried to turn the handle, but Gordon's weight and the strong wind prevented him.
  • Driver: It's no good.
  • Ringo Starr: They said at last.
  • Driver: Your big tender upsets the balance. If you're a little tank engine, you be all right. Now you have to pull the next train backwards.
  • Boys: Look!
  • Ringo Starr: Called some boys.
  • Boys: There's a new tank engine! Oh, it's only Gordon, back to front.
  • Thomas: Hello!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Thomas.
  • Thomas: Playing tank engines? Sensible engine. Take my advice, scrap your tender and have a nice bunker.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon said nothing. Even James laughed when he saw him.
  • Gordon: Take care.
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You might stick too.
  • James: No fear.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled James.
  • James: I'm not so fat as you. I mustn't stick.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought James. He stopped on just the right place to balance the table. It could now swing easily. Gordon arrived and time to see everything. James turned much too easily. The wind puffed him round like a top. He couldn't stop!
  • Gordon: Well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Are you playing roundabouts?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor James feeling quite giddy rolled off to the shed without a word. That night, the three engines had an indignation meeting.
  • Gordon: It's shameful to treat tender engines like this. Gordon has to go backwards and people think he's a tank engine, James spins like a top and everyone laughs at us. And added to that, Sir Topham Hatt makes us all shunt in dirty sidings. Blech! Listen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon. He whispered something to the others.
  • Gordon: We'll do it tomorrow. Sir Topham Hatt will look silly.
  • Ringo Starr: The engines had decided to go on strike.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Trouble In The Shed)
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster came in.
  • Stationmaster: There's trouble in the shed, sir. Henry was sulking. There's no train and the passengers are saying this is a bad railway.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We cannot allow that.
  • Ringo Starr: He found Gordon, James and Henry looking very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, Henry. It's time your train was ready.
  • Gordon: Henry's not going!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: We won't shunt like little tank engines. That was Thomas' job. We are important tender engines. You fetch our coaches and we will pull them. Tender engines don't shunt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see about that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No engine on my railway is too important for small jobs.
  • Ringo Starr: And he hurried away to find Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The yard has never been the same since Thomas left to run his branch line.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly. Edward was shunting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Leave those freight cars please, Edward.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want to push coaches for me in the yard.
  • Edward: Thank you, sir. That will be a nice change.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine. Off you go then.
  • Ringo Starr: So Edward found coaches for the three engines and that day, the trains ran as usual. But next morning, Edward looked unhappy. Gordon came clanking pass hissing rudely.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bless me!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What a noise!
  • Edward: They all hissed me, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Edward.
  • Edward: They say tender engines don't shunt and last night they said I have gray wheels. I haven't have I, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Edward, you have nice blue ones, and I'm proud of you. Tender engines do shunt, but all the same we do need another tank engine here.
  • Ringo Starr: He went to the workshop and they showed them all sorts of engines. At last, he saw a smart little green engine with four wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's the one.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If I choose you, will you work hard?
  • Percy: Oh sir, yes sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine. I'll call you Percy.
  • Percy: Yes sir, thank you sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy, and Sir Topham Hatt brought him back to the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward.
  • Ringo Starr: He called.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here's Percy. Will you show him everything?
  • Ringo Starr: Percy soon learned what he had to do and they had a happy afternoon. Then Henry came by hissing as usual.
  • Percy: Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Went Percy. Henry jumped and ran back to the shed.
  • Edward: How beautifully you wheeshed him!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Edward.
  • Edward: I can't wheesh like that.
  • Percy: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy.
  • Percy: That's nothing. You should hear them in the workshop. You have to wheesh loudly to make yourself heard.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, Thomas arrived.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt sent to me. I expect he wants help.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Edward.
  • Edward: Sh, sh, here he comes.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas, you've been quick. Listen, Henry, Gordon and James are sulking they say they won't shunt like little tank engines, so I have shut them up and I want you both to run a line for a while.
  • Thomas: Little tank engines indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Thomas.
  • Thomas: We'll show them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And Percy will help too.
  • Percy: Oh sir, yes sir, please sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Percy. Edward and Thomas worked the main line greeting each other as they pass by. Percy puffed along the branch line. Thomas was anxious about Annie and Clarabel, but both driver and conductor promise to take care of them. They were fewer trains but the passengers didn't mind. They knew the three other engines were having a lesson. Gordon, James and Henry were cold, lonely and miserable. They wish now they haven't been so silly.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy Runs Away)
  • Ringo Starr: Henry, James and Gordon were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty, and long to be let out again. At last, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope you are sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And that you understand that every job on the railway is important. We have a new tank engine called Percy who helps pull coaches and Thomas and Edward had worked the main line nicely, but I will let you now if you promise to work hard.
  • Gordon: Yes sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the three engines.
  • James: We will.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's right, but please remember that this no shunting nonsense must stop.
  • Ringo Starr: He then told Percy, Edward and Thomas that they can go and play on a branch line for a few days, and they ran off happily to find Annie and Clarabel at the junction. The two coaches were very pleased to see Thomas again. Edward and Percy played with the freight cars.
  • Cars: Stop, stop, stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Screamed the cars as they pushed them to their proper sidings. But the two engines laughed and went on shunting till the cars were tightling arranged. Next, Edward took some empty cars from the quarry. Percy was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He like watching trains and being cheeky to the other engines.
  • Percy: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He would call, and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Percy was waiting for the signalman to set the switch so that he can go back to the yard. He was eager to work but was being rather careless and not paying attention. Edward had warned Percy.
  • Edward: Be careful on the main line. Whistle to the signalman you are there.
  • Ringo Starr: But Percy didn't remember to whistle, and so the busy signalman forgot him. Percy waited and waited. The switch were still against him so he couldn't move. Then, he looked along the main line.
  • Percy: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Gordon with the express.
  • Gordon: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Gordon.
  • Gordon: Get out of my way!
  • Ringo Starr: Percy opened his eyes. Gordon had stopped with Percy's buffers a few inches from his own. But Percy had began to move.
  • Percy: I won't stay here, I'll run away!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed. He ran straight through Edward's station, and was so frighetend that he ran right up Gordon's hill without stopping. After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to shut off steam and applied his brakes.
  • Percy: I want to stop! I want to stop!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Percy was in trouble, so he kindly set the switch. Percy puffed wearly onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
  • Percy: I want to stop, I want to stop! I have stopped!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed thankfully.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the workmen as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have some drink and some coal and then you feel better.
  • Ringo Starr: Presently, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Well done, Percy. You started so quickly that you stopped the nasty accident.
  • Percy: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Percy.
  • Percy: You were clever to stop.
  • Ringo Starr: Then Gordon helped pull Percy out from the bank. The two engines are now good friends, but Percy was always most careful that he goes out on the main line.
