Narrator: "Ponyville had many visitors, and Hoity Toity had scheduled more train. Big Macintosh, the proud horse, had to work harder than ever before."

Big Macintosh: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He called to the buffaloes."

Big Macintosh: "Come on, come on, come on! The passengers rely on me to be on time."

Narrator: "Whenever Big Mac finished one journey, it was time for another to begin."

Big Macintosh: "Never mind."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Big Macintosh: "I like a long run to stretch my legs."

Narrator: "Even so, Hoity Toity decided that Big Mac needed a rest."

Hoity Toity: "Cranky Doodle Donkey shall do your work."

Narrator: "He said kindly. Cranky was delighted. He liked to show off his smart brown hair and was determined to be as fast as Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You know, little Braeburn."

Narrator: "He boasted."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm an important donkey; everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time. That's me."

Braeburn: "Says you."

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn. Just then Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "Your parts are worn, Braeburn. So you must go to the hospital to get better."

Braeburn: "Can I take Scootaloo, sir?"

Hoity Toity: "No. What would the passengers do without her?"

Narrator: "Braeburn saw Pipsqueak by the water fountain."

Pipsqueak: "Don't worry, Braeburn. I'll take care of Scootaloo until you get back."

Narrator: "Soon Braeburn was out on the main road. He clanked as he walked again. He's a little pony with small hooves. His body didn't hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal."

Braeburn: "Good."

Narrator: "He thought."

Braeburn: "There's a station a head. I can have a nice drink and a rest until Cranky had passed."

Narrator: "Braeburn was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Braeburn bofore. Braeburn's driver tried to explain, but the new signalman wouldn't listen."

Signalman: "We must clear the line for Cranky with the express. You'll have to get more water at the next station."

Narrator: "Hurrying used a lot of water, and his body was soon empty. Poor Braeburn was out of stamina and stranded on the main road."

Braeburn's Fireman: "We must warn Cranky."

Narrator: "Said the fireman. Then he saw Pipsqueak and Scootaloo."

Braeburn's Fireman: "Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency."

Narrator: "Scootaloo hated leaving Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "You're taking the fireman to warn Cranky, that's a big help."

Narrator: "Scootaloo felt much better. Cranky was fuming when he heard the news."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm going to be late."

Signalman: "My fault."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "I didn't understand about Braeburn."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "Now, Cranky."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "You'll have to push Braeburn."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What, me!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Me push Braeburn and pull my buffaloes too?"

Narrator: "Grumbling dreadfully, Cranky set off to find Braeburn. He came up behind Braeburn and gave him a bump."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Get on, you!"

Narrator: "Cranky had to work very hard. When he reached the hospital station, he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform."

Boy: "Coo, the express is late and it's got two animals. I just Cranky couldn't pull it on his own, so Braeburn had to help him."

Braeburn: "Never mind, Cranky."

Narrator: "Whispered Braeburn."

Braeburn: "They're only joking."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hah!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky. Braeburn just smiled."
