Narrator- Percy the Small Engine likes playing tricks on other engines. But all the same he will work hard whenever. One day, he was on the turntable, sizziling happily with the sun's rays on his boiler, and fire spreading. It was a lovely May. Then, the Fat Controller arrived aboard Charlie.

Charlie- Hullo Percy, here's the Fat Controller

Narrator- Percy was pleased to see the Fat Controller. He migth have a special for him.

TFC- Percy, scrap needs to get out of my Scrap Yard. So the Other Railroad has agreed to scrap my scrap. Are you up for the job.

Percy- Of course Sir

TFC- very well don't be late.

Charlie- Good bye Percy.

Narrator- Later Percy met Douglas at a junction.

Douglas- Hullo, Percy, were are you goin'

Percy- To deliver scrap to-to-to the O-O-Other Railroad.

Douglas- I see why you are nervous. They cut steam engines up there now. It's all because of DIESELs.

Narrator- But Percy was stern with Douglas

Percy- Not all diesels. Remember Daisy, Mavis, Rusty, and BoCo. YOU know BoCo, his trains are always punctional right.

Douglas- I suppose. But they are Branch Line Diesels. Main Line Diesels are verry differrent.

Percy- Whatever

Douglas- Diesels are devils Percy remember.

Percy- Bother those Scottish Twins, espcially Douglas. I was made a deputation to save them, yet they never understand about diesels.

Narrator- So for two days Percy was very busy. His firebox was burning. He delivered the Mail, then took scrap while the diesels were working. But whenever he saw Douglas he was saying.

Douglas- Diesels are devils

Percy- Made up his own chant

Narrator- Percy was tried the third day, he stopped by a coach. She whispered

Old Slow Coach- Psst, hullo, steamer.

Percy- Oh hullo

Old Slow Coach- Sssh they'll here you

Percy- Oh well who are you.

Old Slow Coach- I am Old Slow Coach. Do you happen to be a Fat Controller's Engine? And do you know any Great Western Engines? I'm Great Western.

Percy- Yes from the North Western Railway.

Old Slow Coach- Your paint is dusty, but I see NWR printed on your builder's plates.

Percy- There are two Great Western Engines and four Great Western coaches.

Old Slow Coach- NO, no, no, no. I'll never make it unless I can be your coach.

Percy- I am mixed.

Old Slow Coach- Do you like stories by the way

Percy- Yes, Skarloey, Rheneas and the other tell me stories.

Old Slow Coach- OK, I was a very fancy and luxury coach. I was used for private train, but ocasionally on the Express. I loved the wind in my face, ahhh. I was a life. My cream and brown admirred everyone. But, later modern rolling stock came along. Just as I had overpowered older rolling stock. they overpowered me. But, this railroad controller bought. So now along with Steamers. I too will be scrapped... Next week.

Percy's Driver- Well actually, this isn't too bad. Her shape's in order, so only paint, and new seats are needed.

Percy- I will save you, You will not be scrapped.

Old Slow Coach- Thanks Percy!

Percy- I'll surely find a way.

Narrator- Percy tried to find which train would suit her well, but he had a golden chance coming. Mrs. Kindley came to visit the engines.

Mrs. Kindley- My daughter is having a Wedding.

Percy- Excuse me ma'am. What's a wedding?

Mrs. Kindley- It's when someone gets married to another person. It's complicated though. So I need a Good Luck Package. Somethin Old, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue. Now, Percy you have the honour of looking for the Good Luck Package.

Percy- Of course.

Narrator- That night. Percy's bulb lit up;

Percy- Old Slow Coach! She's old. Thomas could be the blue thing.

Narrator- The next day, Percy was at Brendam Docks, delivering pipes and slate.

Salty- Hullo Percy, Cranky, James.

Percy and James- Hullo

Cranky- Huh! I don't know why these buffers are so shiny. Any engine's bound to dirty with one clumsy move. I remember the last time someone did that.

James- Nonsense. We engines are clean, buffers are never dirty.

Cranky- I just remember it was Percy who did that

Percy- It was an accident. Besides I know what that can be. Just, Salty can I borrow a truck.

Salty- Yes, this flatbed.

Percy- Thanks.

Narrator- Later that day Percy was with the Fat Controller and the Skarloey Engines

Percy- So I found a coach

Peter Sam- Rusty and I restored a coach to a Tea Stand. Now we will

Sir Handel- I hope it's bogied, because then it is not a coach it is a Cattle Truck.

Rheneas- You must have such an easy time telling what is what, huh.

Sir Handel- Yes I do.

Skarloey- Whatever. All the same Anges, Ruth, Lucy, Jemina, and Beatrice ar useful.

Duke- Useful ya copy that Sir Handel.

Sir Handel- Yes Granpuff.

Duke- Now don't forget it.

Rusty- You should tell the Fat Controller

Duncan- It's no use having it as a secret.

Percy- Yes, um Sir, Sir

TFC- Yes, Percy?

Skarloey- Percy has to tell you something very important. and we'll be off to our jobs. Depart.

(Duke, Skarloey, Rheneas, Sir Handel, Peter Sam, Rusty, and Duncan hoot and whislte, and talk)

Percy- Well you see I have the Good Luck Package sorted out Sir. Thomas will be the something blue. But, the something old Sir needs to be restored.

Narrator- Percy told him all about Old Slow Coach

TFC- Good, Percy, good. Bring her at once.

Diesel #1- Go get her

Diesel #2- Fine
