  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine wouldn't stop being a nuisances. Night after night, he kept the other engines awake.
  • Thomas: I'm tired of pushing coaches. I wanna see the world.
  • George Carlin: The other engines didn't take much notice, for Thomas was a little engine with a long tongue. But one night, Edward came to the shed. He was a kind little engine and felt sorry for Thomas.
  • Edward: I've got some freight cars to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, i'll push coaches in the yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: That would be nice.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Edward and Thomas asked their drivers, and when they said "yes", Thomas ran off happily to find freight cars. Now the freight cars were silly and noisy. They talked a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And i'm sorry to say they play tricks on an engine who is not used to them. Edward knew all about the freight cars. He warned Thomas to be careful but Thomas was too excited to listen. The shunter fastened the coupling and when the signal dropped, Thomas was ready. The conductor blew his whistle.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: Answered Thomas and started off. But the freight cars weren't ready.
  • Freight Cars: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Freight Cars: Wait, Thomas, wait!
  • George Carlin: But Thomas wouldn't wait.
  • Thomas: Come on come on.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Freight Cars: All right, don't fuss! All right, don't fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the cars. Thomas began going faster and faster.
  • Thomas: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: He whistled, as he rush through Henry's tunnel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the cars grew crosser and crosser. At last Thomas slowed down as he came to Gordon's Hill.
  • (Thomas is at the top of Gordon's Hill, but is all exhausted)
  • Thomas' Driver: Steady, now, steady.
  • George Carlin: Warned the driver, as he reach the top. He began to put on the brakes.
  • Thomas: We're stopping, we're stopping!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Freight Cars: No, no, no!
  • George Carlin: Answered the cars bumping them to each other.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: Before the driver could stop them they had pushed Thomas down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind them. Poor Thomas tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast.
  • Thomas: Stop pushing, stop pushing!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. But the cars took no notice.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: They giggled in their silly way.
  • Thomas: There's the station! Oh dear, what shall I do?
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Thomas shut his eyes.
  • Thomas: I must stop!
  • (Thomas comes to a halt)
  • George Carlin: When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was...Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What are you doing here, Thomas?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I brought Edward's freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Thomas answered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why did you come so fast?
  • Thomas: I didn't mean to. I was pushed.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've got a lot to learn about freight cars, Thomas. After pushing them about here for a few weeks you'll know almost as much about them as Edward. Then you'll be a Really Useful Engine.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Toad Stands By)
  • George Carlin: Oliver had been to the works to be mended. Some troublesome cars tricked him, and the great western engine fell into the turntable well. Now Oliver was as good as new, be he was still worried about cars.
  • Oliver: I rather not used them.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to himself. But the cars sang songs rude and loud. Scruffey, their leader, led the chorus.
  • Cars and Scruffey: Oliver's no use at all, thinks he's very clever, says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever, when he orders us about, with the greatest folly, we just pushed him down the well, Pop Goes Old Ollie!
  • George Carlin: Thomas, Duck and Percy were shocked.
  • Thomas: Be quiet!
  • George Carlin: They ordered, but they couldn't be anywhere, and everywhere they went, the cars began again.
  • Cars: Oliver's no use at all, thinks he's very clever, says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever!
  • George Carlin: At last the engines gave up.
  • Thomas: We're sorry, Oliver.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Oliver: It's really my fault.
  • George Carlin: Said Oliver sadly.
  • Oliver: I shouldn't fallen into the turntable well.
  • George Carlin: Toad the break van felt sorry for Oliver too. Next morning, he spoke to Douglas.
  • Toad: I'm worried, Mr. Douglas. This disrespect for engines. Where's it going to end?
  • Douglas: Who knows?
  • George Carlin: Sighed Douglas.
  • Toad: I've got a plan, Mr. Douglas. May I stay here tonight and help Mr. Oliver? We're both Great Western, and must stand together.
  • Douglas: Certainly, Toad.
  • George Carlin: Replied Douglas and puffed away. Soon, Toad was explaining his plan.
  • Duck: Goodness gracious, Toad. I don't think you should suggest such a thing to Oliver.
  • George Carlin: But Oliver interrupted.
  • Oliver: No, Duck, Toad's right. It's really my fault. I must put this trouble right.
  • Toad: I meant no disrespect you understand.
  • Oliver: Of course not, Toad. Anywhere, driver says the same and he's arranged with the stationmaster.
  • Duck: Very well, Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Concided Duck.
  • Duck: But I must hurry. My passengers will be waiting. Good luck.
  • Oliver: So long.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Oliver bravely, but he felt dreadfully nervous inside. Oliver marshalled with the worst cars two by two.
  • Toad: That's the way, Mr. Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Toad.
  • Toad: And if you hadn't leave Scruffey till last, then you'll have him behind you. You can bump him if he starts his nonsense.
  • Scruffey: Hold back, hold back!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Scruffey.
  • Scruffey: And pass the word to the others.
  • George Carlin: The silly cars giggled, but Oliver knew what to do. There was plenty of sand on the rails and his wheels gripped splendidly. He gave a great heave.
  • Scruffey: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Scruffey.
  • Scruffey: I don't like this!
  • Duck: Go on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled Duck.
  • Duck: Well done, boy, well done!
  • Scruffey: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Scruffey.
  • Scruffey: I'm coming apart!
  • (Scruffey breaks himself apart)
  • George Carlin: And he did. Then there was trouble.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Oliver, so you don't know your own strength, is that it?
  • Oliver: (stuttering) N-N-No, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said-said Oliver nervously. Sir Topham Hatt inspected Scruffey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As I thought. Rotten wood rusty frames. Maybe if we put you back together, you'll learn yourself a better name.
  • George Carlin: Nowadays, Oliver only takes freight cars when the other engines were busy. But they always quick to warn each other.
  • Cars: Take care with Mr. Oliver. If you play tricks on him, you'll never be the same car again!
  • George Carlin: Scruffey has learned his lesson and says nothing at all.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Saves The Day)
  • George Carlin: Every day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the station to catch his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello.
  • George Carlin: He always said to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't let the silly freight cars tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: There were lots of freight cars and Thomas worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • George Carlin: He told Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and freight cars.
  • George Carlin: One day, Thomas was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an engine whistling.
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The engine was James and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • James: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the freight cars. Still whistling...
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Poor James disappeared.
  • Thomas: I like to teach those freight cars a lesson.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas the Tank Engine.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • George Carlin: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: James is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was coupled on and off they went. Thomas worked his hardest.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He wasn't predenting to be like Gordon. He really meant it.
  • Thomas: Bother those freight cars and their tricks. I hope poor James isn't hurt.
  • George Carlin: James' driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • James' Driver and Fireman: Never mind James.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • James' Driver and Fireman: It was those silly freight cars and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • George Carlin: Thomas pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Thomas: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Thomas: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • George Carlin: He told the freight cars. And they answered...
  • Freight Cars: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • George Carlin: They left the broken cars. Then with two cranes they put James back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift James away from the field. A surprised Thomas watches as James is put back to the rails)
  • George Carlin: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Thomas helped him back to the shed. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I heard all about it and I'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful engine. James shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Thomas: Oh thank you sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas. Now Thomas is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Annie and Clarabel. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Edward and Henry stop quite often and tell him the news. Gordon is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Gordon: Poop Poop.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas always whistles...
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: In return.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Rusty Helps Peter Sam)
  • George Carlin: Every day when the little engines worked, the crisp air was suddenly filled with familiar noise. The lakes and mountains have many visitors, and Harold the Helicopter flies the sky, making sure that no one's in trouble.
  • Harold: All present and correct. Time to return to base.
  • George Carlin: Then Harold noticed something. A sturdy diesel was coming round the mountain. Harold flew lower for a closer inspection.
  • Harold: I'm Harold. Who are you?
  • Rusty: I'm Rusty.
  • George Carlin: Replied the diesel.
  • Harold: Don't recall seeing you before. What brings you this way?
  • Rusty: Sir Topham Hatt sent me to help the other engines.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Rusty. This was no time to chat with a helicopter.
  • Harold: Well done, cheers, and keep up the good work!
  • Rusty: Cheeky chopper.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Rusty.
  • Driver: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: Encouraged his driver.
  • Driver: We'll soon be at the top station.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam and Sir Handel were glad to see Rusty. Even so, Sir Handel wouldn't stop grumbling. The cars didn't like Sir Handel and wanted to play tricks on him.
  • Gordon: No one understands our feelings.
  • George Carlin: Sympathized Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now if you were ill, you couldn't shunt cars, could you?
  • Sir Handel: Good idea.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: I'll try it.
  • George Carlin: He did so next morning.
  • Sir Handel: I don't feel well.
  • George Carlin: He groaned. There wasn't time for examine him, so some of his cars were coupled behind Peter Sam's coaches. Rusty promised to followed with the rest. Peter Sam didn't mind the extra work. He left his coaches at the station and trundled cheerfully on. Soon they reached the quarry where the cars were needed. Empty cars at the bottom of a slope are hitched to a cable. Loaded ones at the top are hitched to another. By their weight, loaded cars were down the steep slope, pulling the empty ones up. Peter Sam doing waited at the bottom of a slope for the loaded cars. He never bumped cars unless they misbehave. But the loaded cars couldn't see him properly. They thought he was Sir Handel. They're chance for trickery had come.
  • Loaded Cars: Faster! Faster!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Empty Cars: No, no!
  • George Carlin: Wailed the empty cars.
  • Empty Cars: It's Peter Sam!
  • George Carlin: But it was no use.
  • Loaded Cars: Hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Roared the cars. Peter Sam shut his eyes.
  • (The cars crash into Peter Sam, causing his funnel to be broken in the process)
  • Peter Sam: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Peter Sam. Rusty was working nearby and came to help clear out the mess.
  • Rusty: Bust my buffers!
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Rusty.
  • Rusty: Never mind, Peter Sam. We'll get you out.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam felt battered. His funnel was cracked and his boiler dented.
  • Peter Sam: Thank you, Rusty.
  • George Carlin: He sighed and limped slowly home.
  • Sir Handel: I'm sorry about your accident.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel.
  • Sir Handel: I always stand well back. Cars don't like me.
  • Peter Sam: Why didn't you warn me?
  • Sir Handel: I didn't think.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You never do. You can start thinking now while you're doing Peter Sam's work as well as your own. That'll teach you to pretend you were ill.
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel did start thinking about Gordon. When the wreckage was cleared away, Rusty set off along the line.
  • Harold: Splendid to see you again.
  • George Carlin: Whizzed Harold.
  • Harold: I've completing my evenings look about.
  • Rusty: Well done, cheers, and keep up the good work!
  • George Carlin: And the little diesel purred back home.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Percy and The Mail Train)
  • George Carlin: That night, when the other engines are tucked away in their sheds, you can still hear a faraway call of an engine's whistle, and a clickity-clack a train wheel's turning. This is the sound of a mail train. One train is pulled by Thomas, and the other by Percy, as the loads are too heavy for one engine to do the work alone. The mail is loaded into freight cars at the harbour and the engines pull their trains through the silent stations delivering their precious loads. One a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often Thomas and Percy can even see the stars. But whenever the weather, lamps along the track always light their way. One night, Percy was waiting at the junction. The main line train was late. At last, Henry arrived.
  • Henry: Sorry.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Henry: The mail boat from the main line was delayed.
  • Percy's Driver: Come on, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: Let's make up for lost time.
  • George Carlin: Percy hurried along as quickly as he could. But the sun was already rising as he finish his work.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: It's nice be up in about, when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around.
  • George Carlin: Percy was not alone for long.
  • Percy: Bother!
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: It's that dizzy-thing Harold.
  • Harold: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Whirled Harold.
  • Harold: I only said railways were out of date, but you're so slow with the mail. You should give everyone their stamps back.
  • George Carlin: Percy was too tired to explain.
  • Percy: Bird brain.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • Duck: Good morning, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck.
  • Duck: You're up early this morning.
  • Percy: No, you're wrong.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: I'm back, tired and late.
  • George Carlin: He rolled up to the shed and fell asleep, almost before his buffers touched the bar. He driver decided to set off early that evening. Thomas was waiting at the station.
  • Thomas: Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says the person in charge of the mail has complained to Sir Topham Hatt about the delay last night.
  • Percy: But that wasn't my fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Percy.
  • Thomas: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And so does Sir Topham Hatt, but this mail person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before.
  • George Carlin: The engines were just leaving when they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Harold: I say, you two, there's news flying about.
  • Percy: Where?
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy crossly.
  • Harold: All other the place. They're going to scrap the mail train and use me instead. Wings work wonders you know. Always.
  • Thomas: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas. That night, everything ran like clockwork. Thomas and Percy steamed through the stations making good time everywhere they went. At a station, Thomas notice the man looking cold and worried. He had missed his train home.
  • Thomas' Driver: We can give you a ride.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But it'll be rather uncomfortable.
  • Man: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Man: Anything's better than sitting here.
  • George Carlin: The next afternoon, Percy past the airfield and saw Harold.
  • Percy: Hello, lazywings. Are you too tired to fly today?
  • Harold: The wings are too strong.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Harold.
  • Harold: I've been grounded.
  • Percy: You need rails.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: They work wonders you know. Always.
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt show the two engines a letter. It was from the man who missed his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He thinks you are both splendid, and everyone says that the mail train is the pride of the line.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Mind That Bike)
  • George Carlin: If one morning you were to ride in Bertie the bus, he would ride down the winding country road with him, crossed over stone wall bridges and travel past Thomas' branch line. The you would hear Bertie's friendly greeting as he sees one of his friends pass by. His name is Tom Tipper the postman. Every day, Tom travels cheerfully around the Island of Sodor. He stops at stations collecting letters and parcels from Thomas and Percy's mail train. Then he delivers the mail to farms and cottages far and wide. The engines know that anywhere their rails wont reach, Tom Tipper would collect their mail and deliver it safely come rain or shine. He's always ready to load mail bags onto the trains too.
  • Percy: Thank you, Tom.
  • George Carlin: Whistles Percy.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agrees Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a really useful postman.
  • Tom: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Replies Tom.
  • Tom: But where would I be without me van. We make a grand pare.
  • George Carlin: One day, Tom wasn't at the platform. A postman they didn't know dumped the bags on the platform and disappeared.
  • Percy: What happened to Tom?
  • George Carlin: Wondered Percy.
  • Driver: And his old van.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: No wonder the new postman looks cross. Trying to carry mail bags on a bicycle would make anyone miserable.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the engines were glad to see Tom back again. But he looked very sad.
  • Tom: The postmaster has decided my van is too expensive to run. The rounds take longer on my bike. I'm sorry, I can't stop to help ya.
  • Percy: I wished I could cheer Tom Tipper up.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy the Small Engine. He was just wondering about how this might be done when his thoughts were rudely interrupted. A man was shouting at Tom Tipper.
  • Man: You gotta come back to Sir Topham Hatt's office! He needs you to sign some important papers right away.
  • Tom: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Replied Tom Tipper.
  • Tom: This is going to make me later still.
  • George Carlin: He was in a hurry and being careless. He propped his bike against Percy's mail car and rushed away.
  • Percy: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy. But Tom was out of sight. There was worst to come. Percy's driver hadn't seen the bike and he started away.
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: Now they'll be trouble.
  • George Carlin: And there was. Percy's driver quickly stop the train. Everyone came running to the scene. Tom Tipper's bicycle was in pieces.
  • Percy: I'm sorry, Mr. Tipper.
  • George Carlin: Apologized Percy.
  • Tom: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said the postman.
  • Tom: It wasn't your fault. But now I've only my legs to get the mail delivered. Whatever will happen next?
  • George Carlin: Tom Tipper soon found out. Next day he was waiting happily for Percy.
  • Percy: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: Is that a smart new van I see?
  • Tom: It is indeed. That accident did me a good tire, Percy. My chief decided my new van should do the job much better than my old bike and worth the expense. Now I can always be on time again.
  • Percy: So I did help.
  • George Carlin: Beamed Percy.
  • Percy: But by accident you might say.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Toby)
  • Children: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old train, a little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she's seen better days. His mind keeps returning to the good old days. When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby. What will become of you? The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's still lots that you can do. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. All of the children came to say goodbye. They clapped and cheered as Toby rang his bell, "Bye-bye." Everyone was sad to see them go. Whatever will they do, and where will they go? Suddenly news came to brighten up their day. How Toby and Henrietta were needed right away. The Fat Controller had written to say, could they please come and help right away. Now they're part of his family forever. Toby, oh Toby. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.
