  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Time For Trouble)
  • George Carlin: The Island of Sodor has many visitors, and Sir Topham Hatt had scheduled more trains. Gordon the Big Engine had to work harder than ever before.
  • Gordon: Come on.
  • George Carlin: He called to the coaches.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on, come on. The passengers rely on me to be on time.
  • George Carlin: Whenever Gordon finished one journey it was time for another to begin.
  • (The conductor blows his whistle)
  • Gordon: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Gordon: I like a long run to stretch my wheels.
  • George Carlin: Even so, Sir Topham Hatt decided that Gordon needed a rest.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James shall do your work.
  • George Carlin: He said kindly. James was delighted. He like to show off his smart red paint and was determined to be as fast as Gordon.
  • James: You know, little Toby.
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • James: I'm an important engine. Everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time, that's me.
  • Toby: Sez you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby. Just then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your parts are worn, Toby, so you must go to the works to be mended.
  • Toby: Can I take Henrietta, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No. What would the passengers do without her?
  • George Carlin: Toby saw Percy by the water tower.
  • Percy: Don't worry, Toby. I'll take care of Henrietta until you get back.
  • George Carlin: Soon Toby was out on the main line. He clanked as he trundled along. He's a little engine with small wheels. His tanks will not hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal.
  • Toby: Good.
  • George Carlin: He tought.
  • Toby: There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until James has passed.
  • George Carlin: Toby was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Toby before. Toby's driver tried to explain but the new signalman wouldn't listen.
  • Signalman: We must clear the line for James with the express. You'll had to get more water at the next station.
  • George Carlin: Hurrying used a lot of water and his tanks were soon empty. Poor Toby was out of steam and stranded on the main line.
  • Toby's Fireman: We must warn James.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman. Then he saw Percy and Henrietta.
  • Toby's Fireman: Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta hated leaving Toby.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: You're taking the fireman to warn James. That's a big help.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta felt much better. James was fuming when he heard the news.
  • James: I'm going to be late.
  • Signalman: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: I didn't understand about Toby.
  • James' Driver: Now James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • James' Driver: You had to push Toby.
  • James: What, me?!
  • George Carlin: Snorted James.
  • James: Me?! Push Toby and pull my train too?!
  • George Carlin: Grumbling dreadfully, James set off to find Toby. He came up behind Toby and gave him a bump.
  • James: Get on you!
  • George Carlin: James had to work very hard. When he reached the works station he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform.
  • Boy: Koo. The express is late and it's got two engines. I think James couldn't pull it on his own so Toby had to help him.
  • Toby: Never mind, James.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Toby.
  • Toby: They're only joking.
  • James: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Said James. Toby just smiled.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Henry's Special Coal)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Henry was feeling very sorry for himself. Sometimes he can pull trains, but sometimes he felt he had no strength at all.
  • Henry: I suffer dreadfully and no one cares.
  • James: Rubbish, Henry!
  • George Carlin: Snorted James.
  • James: You don't work hard enough!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt spoke to him too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's wrong with you, Henry? You have lots of new parts and new paint too, but they've done you no good. If we can't make you better, we must get another engine instead of you to do the work.
  • George Carlin: This made Henry, his driver and fireman very sad. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting when Henry came to the platform. He had taken off his hat and coat and put on overalls. Henry managed to start but his fireman was not satisfied.
  • Henry's Fireman: Henry is a bad steamer.
  • George Carlin: He said to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry's Fireman: I built up his fire, but it doesn't give enough heat.
  • George Carlin: Henry tried very hard, but it was no good. He didn't have enough steam, and came to a stop outside Edward's station.
  • Henry: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Thought Henry.
  • Henry: I shall have to go away! Oh dear, oh dear!
  • George Carlin: All he could do is to go slowly onto a siding, and Edward took charge of the train. Sir Topham Hatt and the Fireman went on discussing Henry's troubles.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What do you think is wrong, fireman?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry's Fireman: Excuse me, sir.
  • George Carlin: He answered.
  • Henry's Fireman: But the fact is the coal was wrong. We've had a poor lot lately, and today's it's worse. The other engines can manage. They had big fireboxes. Henry's is small and can't make the heat. With Welsh coal, he'd be a different engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's expensive.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Henry: But Henry must have a fair chance. James shall go and fetch them.
  • George Carlin: When the Welsh coal came, Henry's Driver and Fireman were excited.
  • Henry's Driver and Fireman: Now we'll show 'em, Henry old fellow.
  • George Carlin: They carefully made his fire, putting large lumps of coal like a wall round the outside, then the glowing middle part was covered in smaller lumps.
  • Henry: You're spoiling my fire.
  • George Carlin: Complained Henry.
  • Henry's Fireman: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman.
  • Henry's Fireman: We'll have a roaring fire just when we wanted.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was right. When Henry reach the platform, the water was boiling nicely, and he had to let off steam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: How are you, Henry?
  • Henry: Peep, peep, peep! I feel fine!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Have you a good fire, driver?
  • Henry's Driver: Never better, sir, and plenty of steam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No record breaking.
  • George Carlin: Warned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't push him too hard.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry won't need pushing, sir. I'll have to hold him back.
  • George Carlin: Henry had a lovely day. He had never felt so well of his life. He wanted to go fast, but his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Henry's Driver: Steady old fellow.
  • George Carlin: He would say.
  • Henry's Driver: There's plenty of time.
  • George Carlin: They arrived early at the station. Thomas puffed in.
  • Henry: Where have you been, lazybones?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • Henry: Oh, I can't wait for dawdling tank engines like you. Goodbye.
  • Thomas: Whoosh!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas to the coaches.
  • Thomas: Have you ever seen anything like it?
  • George Carlin: Both Annie and Clarabel agreed that they never had.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Flying Kipper)
  • George Carlin: One winter evening, Henry's driver said...
  • Henry's Driver: We'll be out early tomorrow. We've got to take the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Gordon, but I think if we pull the Kipper nicely, Sir Topham Hatt will let us pull the express. The special coal they gave you is working well.
  • Henry: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Cried Henry.
  • Henry: That will be lovely.
  • George Carlin: All kinds of ships use the harbour at the big station by the sea. There are passenger ships, cargo ships and fishing boats also come here. They unload their fish on the key. Some of them goes the shops in the town, and the rest in a special train to other places far away. This is the train the railwaymen called the Flying Kipper. Henry was ready at 5:00. There was snow and frost. Men hustled and shouted loading up the crates of fish. The last door banged, the guard showed his green lamp, and the Flying Kipper was ready to go.
  • Henry: Come on, come on, don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Henry to the freight cars. The cars shuttered and groaned.
  • Cars: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, all right, all right!
  • Henry: That's better, that's better.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Henry. Cloud of smoke and steam poured from his funnel into the cold air, and the fire's light shown brightly.
  • Henry: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Henry. They were going well. The light grew better, signal light shown green as they passed. Then, a yellow signal appeard ahead. His driver prepared to stop, but the home signal was down.
  • Henry's Driver: All clear, Henry. Away we go.
  • George Carlin: They couldn't know the switches from the main line to a siding were frozen, and a home signal should have been set a danger, but snow had forced it down. A freight train was waited in a siding to let the Flying Kipper past, and a Driver and Fireman were drinking cocoa in the caboose.
  • Conductor: The Kipper is due.
  • George Carlin: Said the conductor.
  • Fireman: Who cares?
  • George Carlin: Said the Fireman.
  • Fireman: This is good cocoa.
  • George Carlin: The driver got up.
  • Driver: Come on, fireman, back to our engine.
  • George Carlin: They got out just in time.
  • (Henry crashes into the break van and comes off the rails completely)
  • George Carlin: Henry's driver and fireman had jumped clear before the crash, but Henry lay dazed and surprised. Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Henry: The signal was down, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up, Henry. It wasn't your fault. Ice and snow cause the accident. I'm sending you to Crewe, a fine place for sick engines. They'll give you your new shape and a larger firebox. You'll feel a different engine, and you won't need special coal anymore. Won't that be nice?
  • Henry: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry doubtfully. Henry liked being a Crewe, but was glad to come home. A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers.
  • Henry: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Henry: Thank you very much!
  • George Carlin: I'm sorry to say that a lot of little children were often late for school, because they waited to see Henry go by. They often see him pulling the express. He does it so well that Gordon is jealous. But that's another story.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin No Joke For James)
  • George Carlin: James is a mixed traffic engine. He can pull both freight cars and coaches. He's proud of his smart red paint and so is his driver.
  • James' Driver: Everyone says you brighten up your day, James.
  • George Carlin: One morning, James whistled loudly at the other engines.
  • James: Look at me! I'm a smartest most useful engine on the line!
  • Thomas: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: We're all useful. Sir Topham Hatt says so and he's headed the whole railway.
  • Percy: You know what, James?
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • James: What?
  • George Carlin: Replied James.
  • Percy: You're getting all puffed out.
  • George Carlin: James huffed away. Later, he was still boasting.
  • James: I'm the pride of the line.
  • Gordon: I saw you're pulling freight cars.
  • George Carlin: You're only a goods engine.
  • James: I've pull coaches too.
  • Gordon: Not as much as I do.
  • James: But Sir Topham Hatt has plans for me.
  • George Carlin: James was making this up but Gordon believe him.
  • Gordon: What plans?
  • James: Uh, wait and see. Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • James: Now what'll I do?
  • George Carlin: Thomas was shunting shiny new coaches.
  • Thomas: Good morning, James.
  • James: Are those coaches for me?
  • George Carlin: Asked James hopefully.
  • Thomas: No, these are for Gordon's Express. I'll fetch your freight cars next.
  • George Carlin: But James was going to play a trick on the other engines.
  • James: Actually, Thomas, I'm taking the coaches. Sir Topham Hatt ask me to tell you.
  • Thomas: What about the cars?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • James: Uh, give them to Gordon.
  • Thomas' Driver: Come on, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: Orders and orders.
  • George Carlin: So when James' driver returned, James was coupled to the coaches and he puffed away. Thomas returned with the freight cars. And a few minutes later, Gordon arrived.
  • Gordon: Where's the express?
  • George Carlin: Thomas told him about James.
  • Thomas: And so here are your cars.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was very cross and so his driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: Wait'll Sir Topham Hatt heres about this.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile James was enjoying himself enormously.
  • James: What a clever plan! What a clever plan!
  • George Carlin: He chuffed. Then he saw Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Some jokes are funny, but not this one, James. You have caused confusion.
  • James: Yes Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will now stay in your shed until you are wanted.
  • George Carlin: The other engines teased James.
  • Gordon: I wonder who'd be pulling the express today?
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Henry: I expect it'll be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Henry.
  • Henry: James is stuck in the shed for being silly.
  • George Carlin: James felt sad. Next morning, he went back to work.
  • Thomas: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Good to see you out and about again.
  • James: I'm sorry I tricked you.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Are these my cars?
  • Thomas: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas kindly.
  • Thomas: They're please to have you back.
  • George Carlin: James set off to the harbour with a train of freight cars. He bustled about all day pushing and pulling them into place.
  • James' Driver: Time to go home now, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver at last.
  • James' Driver: No cars or passengers. Just we too.
  • George Carlin: But his driver was wrong.
  • Railway Inspector: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Railway Inspector: I have a meeting with Sir Topham Hatt and I mustn't be late. May I ride back with you?
  • James' Driver: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied James' driver. Then he whispered to James.
  • James' Driver: This gentleman is a railway inspector.
  • George Carlin: James was most impressed. He steamed along the line as smoothly and quickly as he could. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting on the platform and the railway inspector greeted him warmly.
  • Railway Inspector: This clever engine gave me a splendid ride. You must be proud of him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes indeed. Once again, you are a really useful engine.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin All At Sea)
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck like working at the harbour by the sea. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Duck and Percy puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Duck and Percy noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Duck: I wish I could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duck.
  • Percy: Engines can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Percy: Because engines can't float.
  • George Carlin: Duck still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Harold: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Harold.
  • Duck: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Harold: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case i'm needed.
  • Duck: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck.
  • Harold: Yes and beyond.
  • Percy: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Duck: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck.
  • Harold: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Percy lost patience.
  • Percy: Well, Duck, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Duck's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck's driver.
  • Duck's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Duck's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Harold's bringing him now. Come on.
  • (Duck hurries to the scene just in time to see Harold land)
  • Harold: Good to see you again, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Harold as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Harold: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise I will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Bertie got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Bertie: You look splendid flying along the line, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Bertie.
  • Bertie: No wonder they called you great western.
  • Duck: Thank you, Bertie. Percy's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Duck: Engines are happiest when their wheels are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Percy and Duck stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Duck: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: It's Harold. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Duck. His driver caught it.
  • Duck's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Harold's giving it to you as a present, Duck.
  • Duck: That was kind of Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • Duck: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what an engine needs.
  • George Carlin: Duck still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But I think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Saved From Scrap)
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt works his engines hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Edward: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Edward called to Thomas.
  • Thomas: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas cheekily. Thomas was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into cars and Edward pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Edward in the yard. It was a traction engine.
  • Edward: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Trevor: I'm Trevor. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Edward: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Trevor: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new, but my owner says I'm old fashioned.
  • George Carlin: Edward snorted.
  • Edward: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm a useful engine. What work did you do?
  • Trevor: My owner will send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • George Carlin: Trevor shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Trevor: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Edward set off for the station.
  • Edward: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Trevor, i must.
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who liked engines. But strangely none of them would have room for a traction engine at home.
  • Edward: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then...
  • Edward: Peep! Peep! Why didn't i think of him before.
  • George Carlin: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Vicar: Hello, Edward. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a traction engine in the scrapyard, Vicar. He'll be broken up next week. Jem Cole says he never drove a better engine.
  • Edward: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Vicar: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied the Vicar. Jem Cole came on saturday.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's comin to see you, Trevor. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Trevor: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Trevor?
  • Jem Cole: He will when i lit your fire and clean you up.
  • George Carlin: The Vicar and his two boys arrived that evening. Trevor hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Vicar: Show your paces, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said the Vicar. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Vicar: I've got him cheap, Jem, cheap.
  • Jem Cole: Did ye hear that Trevor?
  • George Carlin: Cried Jem.
  • Jem Cole: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Trevor: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Trevor. Now Trevor's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Edward every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Trevor likes his work but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers round the orchard giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Trevor: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin A New Friend For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine enjoys living in the Vicarage Orchard. Edward came to see him every day, but sometimes Trevor didn't have enough work to do.
  • Trevor: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Trevor: And i do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Edward: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Edward.
  • Edward: Sir Topham Hatt has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Thomas today.
  • Trevor: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Trevor happily.
  • Trevor: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Edward: Hello, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: This is Trevor a friend of mine. He's a traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Thomas eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Thomas: A what engine?
  • Trevor: A traction engine.
  • George Carlin: Explained Trevor.
  • Trevor: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Sir Topham Hatt has a job for me.
  • Thomas: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Trevor's car to Thomas' train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Trevor: I'm glad Sir Topham Hatt needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Trevor.
  • Trevor: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although i can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Thomas: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Trevor: I'm a traction engine. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Cars had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' Driver.
  • Driver: They are escential. Trevor, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Trevor: Just the sort of job i like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • Trevor: Now you'll see, Thomas. I'll soon show you what traction engines can do.
  • George Carlin: Trevor was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Trevor: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Thomas brought Annie and Clarabel to visit him. Thomas was most impressed.
  • Thomas: Now i understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Trevor gave them rides to all the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Annie: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Annie.
  • Clarabel: He reminds me of Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Added Clarabel. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Trevor to go. Thomas pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Trevor's eye. Thomas pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Trevor happy.
  • Thomas: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Thomas: The Vicar will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Trevor: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Trevor. That evening, Trevor stood remembering his new friend Thomas, the harbour, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Scaredy Engines)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor look forward to Halloween. They love Sir Topham Hatt's fireworks and the children dressing up as wizards and witches. They also loved Edward's spooky stories.
  • Edward: They say that on Halloween, the ghost engine returns to the smelters looking for his lost whistle: Whoo, whoo!
  • Engines: Ooh, aah, spooky!
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines said all shivering a little. Later, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, Percy and Duck, i have a special job for you. You are to collect some scrap from the smelters yard tonight.
  • Percy: On Halloween!?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry. You'll be back in time for the fireworks.
  • Thomas: Percy isn't worried about missing the fireworks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's a scaredy engine.
  • Percy: I am not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Percy. But he was, a little. At the smelters, all Percy could think about was Edward's ghost engine. Thomas knew Percy was scared. So he teased him even more.
  • Thomas: What's that up there.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas squeaked.
  • Thomas: Is it a spook?
  • Percy: It's just a piece of twisted scrap.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said nervously.
  • Percy: Isn't it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was having fun. He kept on teasing Percy.
  • Thomas: Careful, the ghost engine doesn't get you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Percy: There's no such thing as ghosts!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Percy. Duck felt sorry for Percy
  • Duck: Nobody's brave all the time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: But i'm not a scaredy engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy insisted. The job was nearly complete.
  • Yard Manager: Well done.
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard manager said.
  • Yard Manager: Now i'll need one engine to finish up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck wanted to pay Thomas back for all his teasing.
  • Duck: Please sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Duck: I'm sure Thomas wouldn't mind stay.
  • Thomas: Of course not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas boasted.
  • Thomas: I'm not a scaredy engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Duck and Percy left. When Thomas was by himself, every sound and every shadow was spooky. He was beginning to feel very scared.
  • Thomas: There's no such thing as ghosts.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said nervously.
  • Thomas: Who's there?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was so busy looking for ghosts, he didn't watch where he was going. The chains felt like ghost fingers.
  • Thomas: Something's got me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas wheeshed and set off an old steam whistle.
  • (Old whistle blows)
  • Thomas: The g-g-ghost whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas and he raced away as fast as his wheels could carry him.
  • Thomas: (echoing) The ghost engine is after me!
  • Duck: It was naughty of Thomas to tease you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: He was only playing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I hope he hurries up. I wouldn't want him to be late for the fireworks.
  • Thomas: He's after meeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!
  • Duck: I don't think he'll be late.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck. Duck and Percy joined the other engines for the fireworks.
  • Percy: Where's Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy asked.
  • Percy: He'll miss all the fun.
  • Duck: It would serve him right after all his teasing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck said. But Percy was worried. He went to look for his friend. He found Thomas all alone in the shed.
  • Percy: Are you all right, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Yes. I'm sorry i teased you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Thomas: Duck was right. We all feel scared sometimes.
  • Percy: And we all have to say sorry sometimes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his friend.
  • Percy: So come on, Thomas, we can watch the fireworks just as well from here.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Passengers and Polish)
  • George Carlin: Nancy is the conductor's daughter. One day she was working with Skarloey with some polish and a rag. Skarloey was snoozing happily but Nancy wanted to talk.
  • Nancy: Wake up, lazybones. Your brass is filthy. Aren't you ashamed?
  • Skarloey: No.
  • George Carlin: Yawned Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You're just an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: And Skarloey closed his eyes. He was thinking about his friend Rheneas, and all the good times they had shared before Rheneas was away to be mended. Nancy interrupted again.
  • Nancy: Don't you wanna look nice when Rheneas comes home?
  • George Carlin: Skarloey wasn't sleepy anymore?
  • Skarloey: What? When?
  • Nancy: Soon, daddy told me. I'm going now.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Skarloey: Nancy, stop. Do I really look nice? Please, polish me again.
  • Nancy: Now who's an old fusspot?
  • George Carlin: Laughed Nancy and set to work once time. Duncan was jealous.
  • Duncan: Aren't you gonna polish me too?
  • Nancy: Sorry, not today. I'm going now. I'm helping the Refreshment Lady this afternoon. We must get the ice cream ready for the passengers. Never mind, Duncan.
  • George Carlin: But Duncan did mind.
  • Duncan: It isn't fair!
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duncan: Peter Sam gets a special funnel, Sir Handel gets special wheels, passengers get ice cream, but I'm not even polished.
  • George Carlin: Of course this wasn't true, but Duncan enjoyed complaining. He became sulkier still. That afternoon, there was bad news above the line.
  • Driver: One of Skarloey's coaches has come off the rails.
  • George Carlin: Called Duncan's driver.
  • Driver: We'll have to take workmen here right away.
  • Duncan: All this extra work!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Duncan.
  • Duncan: It wear's an engine out!
  • Driver: Rubbish! Come on!
  • George Carlin: The derailed coach was in a middle of Skarloey's train, so he had gone out top the top station with his front coaches. Duncan shunted the work's trains to the sidings and left the workmen sorted out the mess. Then he brought the passengers and rear coaches home. He sulked all the way.
  • Duncan: I get no rest, I get no rest.
  • George Carlin: He muttered. Duncan had made a journey very difficult. He was short of steam so his driver waited a while and hope of raising more. But Duncan wouldn't try.
  • Driver: We'll keep our passengers waiting.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Duncan was cross.
  • Duncan: You always think about the passengers and never about me!
  • George Carlin: It wasn't long before Duncan built up enough steam and set off again. But he was still very grumpy and cross.
  • Duncan: I'm overworked, and I won't stand it!
  • George Carlin: At last they reached the viaduct near the station.
  • Driver: Come on, Duncan!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver.
  • Driver: One more effort, and you'll have a rest and drink in the station.
  • George Carlin: Then Duncan was very rude.
  • Duncan: Keep your old station. I'm staying here.
  • George Carlin: And he did too. Skarloey had to haul Duncan and his train all the way to the platform. The passengers were furious. They told everyone what a bad railway it was.
  • (Passengers arguing)
  • Man: We're losing money!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No passengers means no polish.
  • Duncan: And no polish means no passengers.
  • George Carlin: Duncan muttered to himself. He still has a lot to learn, doesn't he?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gallant Old Engine)
  • George Carlin: Duncan would not stop grumbling. He grumbled that he wasn't polished enough. He grumbled that he was overworked. Most of all, he grumbled about the passengers.
  • Skarloey: I'm ashamed of you, Duncan.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Thank goodness Rheneas was coming home soon. Perhaps he'll teach you some sense before it's too late.
  • Duncan: What is with Rheneas to do with me?
  • Skarloey: Rheneas saved our railway.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Peter Sam: Please tell us about it.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: Well.
  • George Carlin: Began Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: It was before you came here. Things were bad. Rheneas and I will have to keep the trains running or I'll railway will have to close.
  • Peter Sam: How awful.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: I've tried hard.
  • George Carlin: Continued Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: But my old wheels ached. Rheneas understood. It's my turn now.
  • George Carlin: He telled me.
  • Skarloey: He was often short of steam but he always struggled to the station and then rested there.
  • Rheneas: I mustn't stop between stations.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Rheneas: The passengers wouldn't like it.
  • Duncan: Hmmph!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Duncan. He had stopped on the viaduct and hadn't cared at all.
  • Skarloey: Passengers.
  • George Carlin: Continued Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Get cross if you stopped on the wrong places. Rheneas stopped on the wrong place once and this is what happened.
  • George Carlin: One wet and windy afternoon and the rails were dammed, Rheneas was traveling home with a full train. They were even passengers and the caboose. It wasn't a comfortable ride at all. Rheneas' wheels kept slipping and it was a steep climb. At last, his wheels gripped the rails again.
  • Rheneas: The worse was over.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Rheneas: Now we're away.
  • George Carlin: But they weren't.
  • Rheneas: Aah, I've got a cramp!
  • George Carlin: He groaned. And Rheneas stopped on the lonliness part of the line. His driver examing him carefully.
  • Driver: Your valve gear has jammed. We need to reach the next station. Do you think you still get us here?
  • Rheneas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rheneas. Rheneas did his best.
  • Rheneas: If I fail.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Rheneas: The passengers will be cross and the railway will close.
  • George Carlin: Everything blurred. He was really too tired to make the turn of his wheels, but he did, and another, and another, and another. Finally, tired but triumph, Rheneas reached the station.
  • Rheneas: I'm here at last!
  • George Carlin: He wheezed.
  • Passengers: Thank you for giving us home.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: We'll tell all our friends what a fine railway this is.
  • George Carlin: His driver was delighted.
  • Driver: You're a gallant little engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Rheneas.
  • Driver: When you're rested we'll mend you, so you'll be ready for tomorrow.
  • Skarloey: And...
  • George Carlin: Smiled Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Rheneas always was ready for tomorrow.
  • Duncan: Thanks for telling us about him.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duncan.
  • Duncan: I was wrong. Passengers are important after all.
  • George Carlin: The next day Rheneas came home. All the engines were there to greet him. Edward push his truck to the siding where he was lifted on to his rails. This was the signal for a chorus of whistles from engines large and small. Everyone was happy and Rheneas was the happiest of all.
  • Rheneas: You know.
  • George Carlin: He whispered to Skarloey.
  • Rheneas: This helps an engine feel that at last he has really come home.
