  • (The 2004 version of Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Toby The Tram Engine)
  • George Carlin: Toby is a tram engine. He has cowcatchers and side plates and doesn't look like a steam engine at all. He takes from farms and villages to the main line and is cheerful to everyone he meets. He has a coach called Henrietta who has seen better days.
  • Henrietta: It's not fair at all.
  • George Carlin: She grumbles remembering she used to be full and nine cars would rattle behind her. Now there were only 3 or four for the farms and factories send their goods mostly by truck. Toby is always careful. The cars, buses and trucks often had accidents. Toby hasn't had an accident for years. But the buses are crowded and Henrietta is empty.
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • George Carlin: A lady and a stout gentleman stood on Toby's platform. He was of course Sir Topham Hatt. But Toby didn't noticed yet.
  • Children: Come on, grandfather.
  • George Carlin: Cried the children.
  • Children: Do look at this engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a tram engine, Stephen.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Bridget: Is it electric?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bridget.
  • Toby: Whoosh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Toby.
  • Stephen: Shh!
  • George Carlin: Said her brother.
  • Stephen: You've offended him.
  • Bridget: But trams are electric, aren't they?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They are mostly, and this is a steam tram.
  • Children: May we go in it, grandfather, please?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt to the conductor. They all scrambled into Henrietta.
  • Henrietta: Hip-hip hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Henrietta. But Toby didn't sing.
  • Toby: Electric indeed! Electric indeed!
  • George Carlin: He snorted. He was proud of being a steam tram.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What is your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Toby: Toby, sir.
  • George Carlin: Thank you, Toby, for a very nice ride.
  • Toby: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby. He felt better now.
  • Toby: This gentleman...
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Toby: ...is a gentleman who knows how to speak to engines.
  • George Carlin: The children came every day for two weeks. Sometimes they rode with the conductor, sometimes in empty cars. On the last day of all the driver invited them into his cab. All were sorry when they had to go away and Sir Topham Hatt and his family thanked everyone.
  • Toby: Come again soon.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Children: We will, we will.
  • George Carlin: Called the children. And they waved till Toby was out of sight. The months passed. Toby had few cars and fewer passengers.
  • Driver: Our last day, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver one morning.
  • Driver: The manager says we must close tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: That day, everyone will have a chance of a last ride. The passengers joked and sang, but Toby and his driver wish they wouldn't.
  • Passengers: Goodbye, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers afterwards.
  • Passengers: We're sorry your line was closing down.
  • Toby: So am I.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Toby.
  • Toby: Nobody wants me.
  • George Carlin: Toby thought and went unhappily to sleep. Next morning, the shed was flung open and old Toby woke with a start to his driver waving a piece of paper at him.
  • Driver: Wake up, Toby!
  • George Carlin: He shouted excitely.
  • Driver: The mail has just arrived and there's a letter for us from the stout gentleman! Maybe it's good news.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Breaks The Rules)
  • George Carlin: There's the line to a quarry at the end of Thomas' branch. It goes to some distance along the road. Thomas was very careful to whistle here in case anyone was coming. Early one morning, a large policeman was sitting close to the line. Thomas liked policemen. He had been a great friend of the officer who had just retired.
  • Thomas: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Thomas: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Thomas expected that the new officer would be friendly too. But was sorry to see that he didn't look friendly at all. He was red in the face and very cross.
  • Policeman: Disgraceful!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered.
  • Policeman: I didn't sleep a wink last night. It was so quiet, and now engines come whistling suddenly behind me.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I only said good morning.
  • George Carlin: The policeman pointed to Thomas.
  • Policeman: Where's your cowcatchers?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Thomas: But I don't catch cows, sir.
  • Policeman: Don't be funny.
  • George Carlin: Snapped the policeman. He looked at Thomas' wheels.
  • Policeman: No side plates either.
  • George Carlin: And he wrote in his notebook.
  • Policeman: Engines goin on public roads must have their wheels covered and a cowcatcher in front to protect people and animals from being dragged under the wheels if they stray under the line. You haven't so you are dangerous.
  • Driver: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: We've been along here hundreds of times and never had an accident.
  • Policeman: That makes it worse.
  • George Carlin: The policeman answered. He wrote Regular Law Breaker in his book. Thomas puffed sadly away. Sir Topham Hatt was having breakfast he was eating toast and marmalade. The butler came in.
  • Butler: Excuse me, sir, you're wanted on the telephone.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother that telephone!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Phone chattering)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, my dear.
  • George Carlin: He said to his wife.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas is in trouble with the police and I must go at once.
  • George Carlin: At the station, Thomas' driver told Sir Topham Hatt what had happened.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Dangerous to the public indeed. We'll see about that.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the policeman. But however much he argued with him it was no good.
  • Policeman: The law is the law.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Policeman: And we can't change it.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt felt exhausted.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, driver.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's no use arguing with the policeman. We will have to make those cowcatcher things for Thomas i suppose.
  • Thomas: Everyone will laugh, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They say i look like a tram.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt stared, then he laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. Why didn't i think of it before. We need a tram engine. When i was on my holiday i met a nice little engine called Toby. He takes freight cars from the farms but the trucks have taken most of his work and he needs a change. He has cowcatchers and sideplates. I'll write to this superintedant at once.
  • George Carlin: A few days later, Toby arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see you brought your coach Henrietta.
  • Toby: You don't mind, do you, sir?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Toby: The stationmaster wanted to use her as a hen house, and that would never do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We couldn't allow that.
  • George Carlin: Toby made the silly cars even better than Thomas did.
  • Policeman: Hey you!
  • George Carlin: At first, Thomas was jealous, but he was so pleased when Toby rang his bell and frightened the policeman, they've been firmed friends ever since.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Runaway)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was ill. Workmen had been trying to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward must take you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Thomas felt very miserable. Then, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to help Percy and Toby while Thomas is away.
  • George Carlin: Duck was delighted. He already knew Percy and soon made friends with Toby and Bertie. Terence the Tractor gave him a big welcome too.
  • Terence: Take care of Thomas' coaches.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Terence: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Duck was very gentle with the coaches. Annie and Clarabel were impressed.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • (Duck's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: When Thomas came back, Annie and Clarabel told him how well duck had managed. Thomas was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Thomas' handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Thomas found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Thomas' fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Henry's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Thomas' handbrake. Thomas simmered happily.
  • Thomas: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He thought. As he saw Henry slowly approaching. But Thomas' brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Annie and Clarabel. But Thomas, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Harold the Helicopter. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Thomas was tiring.
  • Thomas: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Thomas saw Harold land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • George Carlin: At last Thomas stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Harold.
  • Harold: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Weirdly, Thomas agreed with him.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Wrong Road)
  • George Carlin: Thomas' branch line is important and so is Edward. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Sir Topham Hatt does not allow the heavier main line engines like Gordon to run on them. But one day, the way Gordon was talking, he would have tought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • George Carlin: Asked Edward.
  • Gordon: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Edward: Never mind, Gordon. I'm sure BoCo will let you pull his freight cars sometimes.
  • George Carlin: Gordon spluttered.
  • Gordon: I wont pull BoCo's dirty cars. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Edward: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt would never approve.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed away. Edward chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two engines pulled two fast trains from the station. Gordon always leaves first with an express for the main line. Edward follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Gordon to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • George Carlin: He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Gordon started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Gordon had been stopped and brought back, Edward was already late with his train.
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Edward along the main line. Gordon was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bill and Ben peeped into the yard. There were no cars for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Gordon will be much better fun.
  • Bill: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Sheesh!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ben.
  • Ben: It's Gordon.
  • Bill: It looks like Gordon but it can't be. Gordon never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bill: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Ben: No Bill, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • (Gordon's Whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • George Carlin: BoCo quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the cars he brought for Bill and Ben. This made the twin behave at once. Gordon tought BoCo was wonderful.
  • Gordon: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • BoCo: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • George Carlin: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James Learns A Lesson)
  • George Carlin: James was enjoying his life on the Island of Sodor, but he still had a lot to learn.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're a special mixed traffic engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You can pull coaches or freight cars quite easily, but you must learn by your mistakes.
  • George Carlin: James knew what Sir Topham Hatt meant. He could well remember that dreadful accident on his first day.
  • Edward: Be careful with the coaches, James.
  • George Carlin: Said kind little Edward.
  • Edward: They don't like being bumped.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to admire James.
  • James: I'm really a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought and suddenly let off steam.
  • James: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: A shower of water fell on Sir Topham's nice new top hat. Just then, the conductor blew his whistle and James thought they had better go.
  • James: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Edward.
  • Edward: Don't push, don't push!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. The coaches were grumbling too.
  • Coaches: Don't go so fast, don't go so fast!
  • George Carlin: But James wouldn't listen. When at last they stopped at the next station two coaches were beyond the platform. They have to go back to let the passengers out. But no one seems to know about Sir Topham's new hat so James felt happier. Presently they came to the station where Thomas was waiting with his two coaches.
  • Thomas: Hello, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Feeling better? That's good. Oh, that's my conductor's whistle. I must go. I don't know what Sir Topham Hatt to do without me to run this branch line.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed off importantly. Edward and James passed the field where James has had his accident. The fences were mended and the cows were back again. They ended their journey and rested before setting off for home. James was still wondering what Sir Topham would have to say about his new hat. Next morning, he spoke severly to James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you can't behave, I shall take away your red coat and have you painted blue.
  • George Carlin: James didn't like that at all. He was very rough with the grumbling coaches as he brought them to the platform.
  • James: Don't talk, come on! Gordon never fetch his own coaches.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • James: And he's only painted blue.
  • George Carlin: To make James even more cross, this time no one came near him.
  • James: I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • James: They thought Gordon is the only engine who can pull coaches. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James.
  • Coaches: You're going too fast, you're going to fast!
  • George Carlin: Replied the coaches. James laughed and tried to go faster, but the coaches wouldn't let him.
  • Coaches: We're going to stop, we're going to stop!
  • (James soon comes to a complete halt)
  • James: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: James asked his driver.
  • Driver: The brakes were on, leak in the pipe most likey. You banged the coaches enough to make a leak in anything.
  • Conductor: How should we mend it?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: We'll do it with newspaper and a leather bootlace.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Conductor: Well, where's the bootlace coming from?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: Ask the passengers.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Conductor: You have a leather bootlace there.
  • George Carlin: Said the Conductor to a smartly dressed man.
  • Conductor: Please give it to me.
  • Man: I won't.
  • Conductor: Then I'm afraid the train will just stop where it is.
  • George Carlin: The passengers all said what a bad railway it was. Then they told the man how bad he was instead. Everyone was very cross. At last, he handed his laces over. The driver tied a pad of newspapers tightly round the hole in the brake pipe, and James was able to pull the train. But he was a sadder and wiser James, and took care never to bump coaches again.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Foolish Freight Cars)
  • George Carlin: James had not been out to push coaches or freight cars in the yard for several days. He was feeling miserable.
  • James: Oh dear. I wonder how long I shall have to stay in the shed would anyone else see my coat again? Why did I go so fast that i made a hole in one of my coaches that had to be mended with of all things a passenger's bootlace.
  • George Carlin: At last Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I know you are sorry, James, and I know too that you want to be a useful engine. People are laughing at my railway and I do not like that at all.
  • James: I will try hard to do my best.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine. There's nothing like determination. I want you to pull some freight cars for me.
  • George Carlin: James was delighted and puffed away.
  • Thomas: Here's your freight train, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Have you got some bootlaces ready?
  • George Carlin: And he ran off laughing.
  • Cars: Oh, no!
  • George Carlin: Said the freight cars.
  • Cars: We want a proper engine, not a red monster.
  • George Carlin: James took no notice and started as soon as the conductor was ready.
  • James: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Cars: We won't, we won't.
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars. But James didn't care and he pulled the screeching cars stermly out of the station. The cars tried hard to make him give up but he still kept on. Sometimes their brakes will slip on and sometimes their axles will run hot and each time the trouble had to be put right and each time James will start again, determined not to let them beat him.
  • Cars: Give up, give up! You can't pull us! You can't, you can't!
  • George Carlin: Called the cars.
  • James: I can and I will! I can and I will!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James and slowly but surely, he pulled them along the line. At last they saw Gordon's Hill.
  • Driver: Look out for trouble, James.
  • George Carlin: Warned his driver.
  • Driver: We'll go fast and get them up before they know it. Don't let them stop you.
  • George Carlin: So James went faster and soon they were halfway up.
  • James: I'm doing it, I'm doing it.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • James: Will the top never come?
  • George Carlin: Then with a sudden jerk, it all came easier.
  • James: I've done it, I've done it. Hooray! It's easy now.
  • George Carlin: But his driver shut off steam.
  • Driver: They've done it again. We've left our tail behind. Look.
  • George Carlin: The last cars were running backwards down the hill. A coupling had snapped. But the conductor stopped the cars and got out to warn approaching engines.
  • James: That's why it was easy.
  • George Carlin: Said James as he backed the cars carefully down.
  • James: What silly things freight cars are. They're might have been an accident.
  • Edward: Shall I help you, James?
  • George Carlin: Called Edward.
  • James: No thank you. I'll pull them myself.
  • Edward: Good, don't let them beat you. You're doing well!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward as James slowly struggled up the hill.
  • James: I can do it, I can do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He pulled and puffed as hard as he could.
  • James: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: He panted. James was resting in the yard when Edward pulled up.
  • Edward: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled. Then, James saw Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Oh dear, what will he say?
  • George Carlin: He asked himself. But Sir Topham Hatt was smiling.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I was in Edward's train and I saw everything. You made the most troublesome train on the line behaved. After that performance, you deserved to keep your red coat.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Donald and Douglas)
  • George Carlin: Donald and Douglas are twins and had arrived from Scotland to help Sir Topham Hatt, but only one engine had been expected. The twins meant well, but did cause confusion. Sir Topham Hatt had given them numbers, Donald 9 and Douglas 10, but he was still planning to send one engine home. There was a break van in the yard that had taken a dislike to Douglas. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Douglas began to worry. Donald, his twin, was angry.
  • Donald: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Break Van: You can't!
  • George Carlin: Said the break van.
  • Break Van: I'm essential!
  • Donald: Och are you?
  • George Carlin: Donald burst out.
  • Donald: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Douggie, would ya? Take that!
  • Break Van: Ow! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Cried the van.
  • Donald: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • George Carlin: The van behave better after that. Until one day, Donald had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time. Donald wasn't hurt, but Sir Topham Hatt was most annyoed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am disappointed, Donald. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Douglas back and keep you.
  • Donald: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now James will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. James won't like that.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was right. James grumbled dreadfully about extra work.
  • Douglas: Anyone would think.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: That Donald had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about an engine and some tar wagons.
  • James: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: It's not funny.
  • George Carlin: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Donald: Well, well, well! Surely, James, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • George Carlin: James didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Break Van: James is cross!
  • George Carlin: Sniggered the spiteful break van.
  • Break Van: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Cars: Hold back!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the freight cars to each other. James did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Edward's station. Luckily, Douglas was there.
  • James: Help me up the hill, please!
  • George Carlin: Panted James.
  • James: These freight cars are playing tricks.
  • Douglas: We'll show them.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas. Slowly but surely, the snorting engines forced the freight cars up the hill. But James was losing steam.
  • James: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Douglas: Leave it to me!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Douglas. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady! The van's breaking!
  • George Carlin: The van was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Edward came to clear the mess. Sir Topham Hatt was board.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I might have known it would be Douglas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: Douglas was grand, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: James had no steam left, but Douglas worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Two would have been enough.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want to be fair, Douglas, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was making up his mind about which engine to send away, but that's another story.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin The Deputation)
  • George Carlin: Snow came early to the Island of Sodor. It was heavier than usual. Most engines hate snow. Donald and Douglas were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Henry: Help, help!
  • Douglas: Losh shakes, Donald! It's Henry!
  • Donald: Don't worry yourself, Henry! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • George Carlin: Henry was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The twins were looking glum. They told him Sir Topham Hatt was making a decision.
  • Donald: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Percy: It's a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Gordon: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • James: That spiteful break van too.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • James: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Henry: The twins were splendid in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Added Henry.
  • Henry: It isn't fair.
  • George Carlin: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Percy decided to talk to Edward about it.
  • Edward: What you need...
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: ...is a deputation.
  • George Carlin: He explained what that was. Percy ran back quickly.
  • Percy: Edward says we need a depostation.
  • Gordon: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The question is...
  • Henry: What is a desperation?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • Percy: It's when engines tell Sir Topham Hatt something's wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Duck: Did you say tell Sir Topham Hatt?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Gordon: I purpose.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Percy be our...um...disputation.
  • Percy: Me?!
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Percy.
  • Percy: I can't!
  • Henry: Rubbish, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: It's easy.
  • Gordon: That's settled then.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon. Poor Percy wished it wasn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy. It's nice to be back.
  • George Carlin: Percy jumped.
  • Percy: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look nervous, Percy. What's the matter?
  • Percy: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt pondered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you mean a deputation, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes sir, please sir. It's Donald and Douglas. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be turned to scrap, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Please, sir, don't send them away.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you, Percy. That will do.
  • George Carlin: Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings and I give a lot of thought to the matter.
  • George Carlin: He paused impressively.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Donald and Douglas, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: The twins were surprised.
  • Donald: Thank you, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Douglas: Thank you, sir. Uh, does this mean that the both of us?
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt smiled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It means...
  • George Carlin: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The twins were here to stay.
