My first go at a Ringo Starr US version of an episode he didn't narrate for the US. Now basiclly, I just took the line, The Fat Controller held his ears too. Edit out The Fat Controller and replace it with Sir Topham Hatt. So, it would sound like "Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too". If you ever use this, please credit me.

Transcript (only made by JamesandPeterSamFan)

  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He grumbled.
  • Gordon: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful.
  • (music plays)
  • Gordon: And there's another thing: Henry whistles too much. No respectable engine ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • (Henry feels sad)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • (Gordon puffs away)
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • (his whistle blows)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • (Henry arrives at Wellsworth while his whistle blows)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Smiled Henry.
  • (Edward and Henry hear a whistling sound)
  • Henry: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon. But Gordon never whistles like that.
  • (Gordon can't stop whistling)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): It was Gordon. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Henry and he didn't look at Edward. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • (Gordon runs past Edward and Henry)
  • Edward: Well.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): And he told Edward what Gordon had said.
  • (Gordon goes around the bend of the hill and still can't stop)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Meanwhile, Gordon screeched along the line. The noise was awful.
  • (Gordon stops at Knapford)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): At the station, everyone covered their ears. Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take him away!
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And stop that noise!
  • (Gordon leaves to get his whistle fixed)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Gordon puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place.
  • (one of the them hit his whistle with a ball-peen hammer)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): That night, Gordon slunked into the shed.
  • (Gordon's whistle blows as he comes in)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He was glad it was empty.
  • (James and Henry come in)
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • (Percy comes in too)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): No one mentioned whistles.
  • (the scene fades from night to day)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Hummed his coaches.
  • (Henry sees a boy)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Henry: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He whistled.
  • (he goes under the bridge, but the glass shatters)
  • Henry: Ohh.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.
  • (the coaches' windows are broken)
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass, they've broken our glass.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Sobbed the coaches.
  • (everyone was out)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Henry: Yes, yes.
  • Henry's Driver: Well then.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • (Henry felt happy about what his driver said and he continues on)
  • (Henry arrives at Lower Tidmouth)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Lots of people were at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry has plenty of ashes.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Henry's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Henry felt more stuffed up than excited.
  • (Henry leaves Lower Tidmouth)
  • (the three boys are on the bridge, beginning to throw stones)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you.
  • (Henry waits to sneeze)
  • Henry's Driver: Now.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): He said.
  • Henry: Ah-choo, shoo.
  • (Henry sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry.
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Laughed his driver.
  • (Henry's whistle blows)
  • Narrator (Ringo Starr): Henry went home, hoping that next time he saw Gordon and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.


  • JamestheRedEngine4: Not Bad! That was pretty good.
    • JamesandPeterSamFan: Thanks.
  • JamestheRedEngine4: Did you edit out The Fat Controller and replaced with Sir Topham Hatt?
    • JamesandPeterSamFan: Yes, I did. My favorite part is Ringo Starr saying "Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too".
  • ThomasandFriendsRingoStarr: What video or DVD is this taken from?
    • JamesandPeterSamFan: It's not from any video or DVD. I made this.
