Thomas and the Magic Railroad

(the movie title disappears)

Mr. Conductor (narrating): Hello. I'm Mr. Conductor. And I'm going to tell you a story about trains, folks far apart and a magic railroad that brought them together.

(Thomas coming out of the tunnel, whistling)

Mr. Conductor (narrating): Every story, like a railroad, has its heroes. Meet Thomas. He's our number one hero.

(Thomas toots)

Thomas: Hello.

Mr. Conductor (narrating): But he's running a little late today.

(The scene fades to the water mill bridge)

Mr. Conductor (narrating): This is the Island of Sodor, where Thomas and his friends live. It's at one end of my special universe.

(The scene cuts to Henry as he chuffs under the bridge with a goods train and over Bulgy's Bridge with Edward passing by him with cattle trucks as Percy passes with trucks by Thomas with Annie and Clarabel under the bridge, Bertie honking as he rolls by)

Mr. Conductor (narrating): I like helping out here. By the invitation of Sir Topham Hatt, of course.

(The scene of Gordon at Wellsworth station with the express, counting how many seconds late Thomas was)

Gordon: Five, six, seven, eight…

Thomas: Who do we appreciate? Practicing your numbers, Gordon? That's a good engine.

Gordon: I'm counting how many seconds late you are. What does that sign say?

Thomas: Sodor Railway. Really reliable and right on time... (Gordon sniggers) ...signed Head Of The Railway Sir Topham Hatt.

Gordon: But, you weren't on time, little Thomas.

Thomas: And you're being bossy, Gordon. Now please excuse me. I'm meeting Mr. Conductor. He's looking after us while Sir Topham Hatt takes a much needed holiday.

Gordon: Well, I think we can take care of ourselves.


Gordon: (Shaking) Oh, Diesel 10's back.

Thomas: Yes. 10 out of 10. For devious deeds and brutal strength. The blast from the past who hates steam engines.

Gordon: Maybe we do need Mr. Conductor here after all. On time.

(The scene cuts to the mountainsides that lead to Shining Time)

Mr. Conductor (narrating): At the other end of my universe, far away across oceans of time.... up and over Muffle Mountain and hidden deep in a valley is my hometown.... Shining Time.
