N- It was a fine morning at the Skarloey Railway Engine Sheds. Duncan and Peter Sam waited impatiently for the Thin Controller to arrive.

TTC- Hullo Duncan, Peter Sam, now today you will have a busy day ahead of you. Yesterdays strom blew down alot of trees. All the logs from the trees have been sent to the Wharf. I need you to take it to Henry at the Transfer Yards You may only take three flat trucks at a time. I expect you to do a good job.

Peter Sam- I'll go get coal and meet you at the Wharf

N- At the Wharf, Duncan had his three flat trucks.

Duncan- I will definently do a good job.

Peter Sam- Now. Go to Colin

Duncan- But I'm fine here with this crane.

Peter Sam- OK...

N- But as soon as Duncan had finished loading. The crane ran out of oil

Peter Sam- Ha!

Duncan- What does that mean?

Peter Sam- It means you failed your job. You've only loaded one truck. I've loaded three.

Duncan- Well, I'll use the next crane

Peter Sam- Very well, enjoy. I'll be with Colin

N- The next crane was faulty, it splattered smoke and hit Duncan.

Duncan- Me, red paint. Excuse me. STOP!

N- Peter Sam rushed to Duncan

Peter Sam- Told you

Duncan- Fine. I'll use Colin.

N- But Duncan was cross. Too cross to notice the point failure! He splashed right into the water. The first flatbed held him up. Peter Sam quickly tried to pull him back but it was no use. A nearby crane helped Duncan onto a flat truck. Luckily they sent Rusty to help and the job was done in time. Later, Duncan was being clean.

Duncan- I'm very sorry I did not listen to you

Peter Sam- That is alright.
