Sir Topham Hatt : Henry lost his regulator and I sent 2 new engines to do his work. So I need you to make feel welcome.
Narrator: Sir Topham Hatt left. The engines were excited.
James: I hope they're red, like me for instance.
Thomas: I hope they're tank engines, like me and Percy.
Narrator: James was going to Knapford station to collect his coaches. When he got there, he found that his coaches were there and he coupled up to them. The stationmaster came up to him.
Stationmater: 1 of the new diesels shunted your coaches.
James: (Stammering) A - a diesel.
Narrator: Then a bristish blue BR class 35 Hymek Bo - Bo apeared beside him. James didn't like diesels including this one.
7101: Hello, 7101 and I shunted your coaches for you.
James: (rudely) don't you have a name?
7101: They didn't gave me a name on the other railway, but do you like some help?
James: No thank you, ugly box on wheels. (puffs away)

D199: Old Reliable, they call me and I don't need you help, let me tell you ugly catipiller with red stripes. Your friends will be scrapped and we'll take over. (purred away)

7101: What about my passengers?

7101: Don't mention it.
Narrator: That night, the 2 diesels surveyed the sheds.
D199: It's time 7101, to take this railway over.
7101: Shush 199. It's their railway after all.
D199: Not for long, our controller says "Steam engines spoil our image."
Duck: Of course we do! We'll show what frauds you are. Call yourselves engines?
James: If anything happens you care nothing for your train you just moan for a fitter.
'D199: 'Nothing ever happens to us, we are more reliable.
Narrator: All of the noise greeted this.
D199: How rude!
D7101: You asked for it. Now shut up!
Narrator: The next morning Henry was rolling home tender first.
Henry: (moaning) I'm a failed engine, lost my regulator.
