Transcript

  • Ringo Starr: Stepney the Bluebell Engine was busy talking to the other engines. It was his first visit to their railway and he was having a splendid time.
  • Stepney: You are very lucky engines.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Stepney: Your line has got everything. It's long enough to give you a good run, and you have plenty of passengers. Then you have a quarry and a mine, so you'll need plenty of cars. Cars are fun. I missed them on our line.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy was surprised. All the engines thought cars were trouble.
  • Percy: You're welcome to take some of mine.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Percy: But you better ask driver first.
  • Ringo Starr: Their drivers agreed and the two engines set off. Thomas and Toby were speechless. Stepney took the cars to the harbour. Then he picked up the loaded ones and started back. Ahead was a cricket field. The game had just begun. Stepney and his driver had to wait at the signal.
  • Driver: Good.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We can watch the game.
  • Ringo Starr: Then there was trouble. The batsman hit the ball. It flew high into the sky towards Stepney's train. Clunk went the signal. Thump went the ball into a car, but neither driver nor fireman heard it.
  • Players: Stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Yelled the players but Stepney didn't hear them.
  • Stepney: Come along, come along.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed to the cars.
  • Players: Our one and only ball!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the players.
  • Players: Wake up, Caroline.
  • Ringo Starr: They said to their old car.
  • Players: The chase was on.
  • Ringo Starr: Caroline coughed crossly and rolled down the road. Stepney wasn't hurrying. Caroline soon came up behind.
  • Caroline: Toot toot!
  • Ringo Starr: She wailed. The players shouted but Stepney was still too far for his driver and fireman to see or hear properly. They completely misunderstood.
  • Driver: If those jokers wanna race.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Driver: They can have on. Faster, Stepney, faster!
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Caroline wasn't happy at all. She rattled along at twice her usual speed.
  • Caroline: I shouldn't be treated like this.
  • Ringo Starr: She grumbled.
  • Caroline: This pace is too hot for my system. It'll fuse all my circuits.
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly, Stepney was nowhere to be seen.
  • Caroline: Hurrah! That silly train has run into a hole so we can't catch it. I can go home now.
  • Ringo Starr: But she couldn't. Her driver pounded Caroline on up the steep hill and then the other side toward the station. Stepney was already here when Caroline cluttered in.
  • Players: We need our ball back!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the players and explained everything. The ball was nestled in some straw and the third car from the caboose.
  • Player: We found it!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the player.
  • Driver: We're sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed the driver.
  • Player: Ah, you couldn't help it.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the player.
  • Player: Now we must get back quickly.
  • Driver: You'll be lucky.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Driver: Caroline looks worn out.
  • Ringo Starr: And she was. The driver spoke to the stationmaster and the signalman and they all agreed on the plan. Soon they rolled Caroline on to a flat car and a caboose coupled behind. The players crowded in sight and Stepney pulled the train back to the playfield. Everyone enjoyed watching the game. Even Caroline was pleased. She doesn't think trains silly now.
  • Caroline: They have their uses.
  • Ringo Starr: She says.
  • Caroline: They can save the wear on a poor car's wheels.
