This is the script for The Irelanders' Adventures of Thomas & Friends: Hero of the Rails.
[The story begins at Ireland where Connor and his friends are getting ready to go to Sodor again]
Connor Lacey: Come on, guys! It's time to get back to Sodor.
Martin Kratt: I know. This is our first time going there.
Chris Kratt: We get to meet Thomas the tank engine we heard about.
Martin Kratt: And there might be some new creatures there that we can make creature powers from.
Razer: Let's go!
Bronwyn Jones: Where's Spike?
Twilight Sparkle: He's coming.
Spike: I'm here.
Fireman Sam: What kept you, Spike?
Aviva Corcovado: You don't want us to leave you behind, do you?
Spike: Sorry. I just got some friends to come along for the adventure.
Lightning McQueen: Like who?
[Then Marco Polo, Luigi Bellini, Shi La Won and Fu Fu arrives]
Connor Lacey: Marco, Luigi, Shi La, Fu Fu! It's good to see you again.
Marco Polo: It sure is, Connor.
Jimmy Z: It's been quite sometime since we've helped you clear your father's name in China.
Shi La Won: Yeah. We're glad to be here, right Fu Fu?
Fu Fu: (chitters)
Koki: To think I used to hate bats until I help Bite-Size and his pals found new homes.
Luigi Bellini: We're not the the only ones Spike brings here.
[Olwin whistles as she appears]
Olwin: Oh, hello, Connor and Irelanders.
Olwin: I haven't see you since you've visited Chuggington. Spike gather me. Are we going to The Island of Sodor you've told me about, Connor?
Connor Lacey: Of course, Olwin.
Fireman Sam: Then what are we waiting for? Let's go.
Mickey Mouse: Hot dog!
Jimmy Z: Tortuga time! Next stop, Island of Sodor and fly.
[The Tortuga flew off and the intro begins and ends with the title The Irelanders' Adventures of Thomas and Friends: Hero of the Rails]
Narrator: Hero of the Rails. It was summer on Sodor. The sky was bright blue, the fields were full of flowers and the birds sang sweetly as Thomas fill up with water. He felt very happy. Suddenly, there was a whoosh and a wheesh and a clacking clack as a streak of silver roared by on the track. Thomas: Fizzling fireboxes! What was that? Narrator: All over Sodor, Thomas' friends were buffered and blasted on their track. Henry: Bubbling boilers! Percy: Bust my buffers! James: Watch my paintwork! Emily: Trembling tracks! Who was that? Toby: Grosh! Edward: Slow down, speedy! Gordon: Rail-raider! [The scene changes to Knapford where the engines have gathered to talk about the mysterious blur of silver] Narrator: Later, Thomas and his friends were at Knapford. They were very puzzled. James: He was big. Gordon: He was silver. Henry: He was very, very fast. Thomas: That must mean it's..... [A cloud of steam came towards them and stop to reveal..... All: Spencer! Spencer: Hello, Sodor. What do you know? I'm here for the summer. Thomas: Why? Spencer: I have a very important job to do. The Duke and Duchess of Boxford are having a new summerhouse built. It has to be finished in time for the Duke and Duchess' holiday. I'm very busy. No time to chat. Narrator: And Spencer steam smugly away. Thomas: Cinder and Ashes. Having speedy Spencer on Sodor for one day is bad. James: But for the whole summer... Gordon: Is terrible.
[The scene changes to the Tortuga landing]
Connor Lacey: Well, here we are.
Piplup (Pokémon Mystery Dungeon): This is surprising.
Chris Kratt: Wow.
Martin Kratt: This is very cool.
Rainbow Dash: Awesome.
Marco Polo: This is a great place for adventure.
Shi La Won: (deep in thought) The island's name sounds familiar.
Rarity: I have a very good feeling about this adventure today.
Spike: Hey, Connor. I just remember.
Connor Lacey: What is it, Spike?
Spike: Well, what if Diesel 10, Hades, Maleficent, Robbie Rotten, The Cyber Shredder, Infinite and The Grand Duke of Owls come back here and try to get revenge on us for ruining their plan?
Connor Lacey: Don't worry, Spike. If they do come back I'll turn into any alien and give them the boot.
Razer: Save some for me.
Connor Lacey: You got it, Razer.
[Then, a flash of light came zooming down from the railway]
Marinette Dupain-Cheng: The train just sped up to a hill.
Fireman Sam: Hmm. Do you what I think, guys?
Connor Lacey: What, Sam?
Fireman Sam: I think we should wait until night to see them. Thomas and his friends are doing their jobs and we don't want to cause confusion and delay. So we'II meet them at Tidmouth Sheds tonight.
Connor Lacey: Right.
[The scene changes to Thomas and Percy puffing up to the top of Gordon's Hill]
Narrator: That afternoon, Thomas and Percy were huffing and puffing up Gordon's Hill. Then they heard Spencer whooshing and wheeshing behind them. Spencer: A little more puff and you might make it to the top by teatime. Percy: Bossy boiler. Narrator: Next, Spencer caught up with Gordon. Spencer: Out of my way, slowcoach. (whistles) Gordon: O, the indignity. Narrator: Toby was huffing slowly to a junction. Spencer steamed alongside, hooting and tooting. Spencer: It looks like you're too old now to be really useful, Toby. [The signal turns and Spencer set off and Toby's signal turns red again] Narrator: Toby gasped. He was upset. He missed his green light. Edward and James were chuffing cheerfully along. Spencer slowed. Spencer: Dear, oh dear. It takes two old engines to pull one truck, does it? I'm pulling five. Narrator: And Spencer thundered away. James was so cross, he couldn't puff at all.
[The scene changes to Tidmouth Sheds at night]
Narrator: That night, the engines can only talk about Spencer.
Thomas: He told Toby he was too old.
Gordon: He's taken over my express line.
James: He'II never have a shiny coat like mine.
Edward: He'II never have manners.
Connor Lacey: Maybe we can help with that.
Gordon: Hello, there.
Robonyan F: Hi.
Emily: You know these guys, Thomas?
Thomas: Yes. Percy and I known them for a while.
Marco Polo: So you're Thomas I've heard.
Thomas: That's me, alright.
Marco Polo: I'm Marco Polo. This is Luigi, Shi La and our pet bat, Fu Fu.
Olwin: I'm Olwin. I'm from Chuggington.
Gibson: She's our friend from Chuggington.
Connor Lacey: (seeing Emily) Oh, I don't believe we've met, miss...
Emily: I'm Emily but who are you?

Fireman Sam: I'm Fireman Sam.
Spud the Scarecrow: I'm Spud the Scarecrow.
Twilight Sparkle: So Connor, who are these other engines besides Thomas, Percy and Emily?
Edward: I'm Edward.
James: I'm James.
Gordon: Gordon here.
Henry: I am Henry.
Toby: And my name is Toby. I'm a steam tram engine.
Connor Lacey: So, Thomas, what's been bothering you lately?
Thomas: We were just talking about Spencer from the mainland. He's a streamlined engine but he's also very rude and show off as well. He's been very rude to all of us ever since he got here. And to make matters worse, we're gonna stuck with him for the whole summer because he's helping built the summer house for the Duke and Duchess of Boxford.
Connor Lacey: Well, I think we might be able to help you.
Olwin: Wait, did you say Spencer?
Thomas: Yes. Why?
Olwin: He's my brother.
[The Steam Team gasp]
Aviva Corcovado: What?
Connor Lacey: Brother?
Olwin: It's true.
James: Now you're mention it, you're the same basis as him but with no tender.
Gordon: Since Spencer's my cousin, that makes you my cousin too.
Olwin: Well, thanks, dear.
Percy: But how can you run without a tender?
Olwin: Well, in Chuggington, we fill up with coal with a hatch on the roof of our cabs.
Henry: That's weird.
Olwin: I'll even tell you about the time I once had bubble liquid inside me.
Thomas: Bubble liquid?
Olwin: Yes. My funnel and my mouth had bubbles coming out of them.
Edward: When did that happen?
Olwin: Sometime ago.
Connor Lacey: I was there when that happen.
[Gordon and James laughs at that]
Pinkie Pie: What?
Gordon: Well, the fact that Olwin's funnel and mouth had bubbles coming out is so funny.
James: That's right. She is really "bubbly". (laughs with Gordon)
Hovernyan: Well, it's nothing to laugh about.
Emily: Does Spencer know about that, Olwin?
Olwin: Not yet, but I'm planning to tell him.
Blondie Lockes: Okay.
Spike: There's one thing I don't get.
Fireman Sam: And that is?
Spike: How's Gordon related to Spencer and Olwin?
Gordon: Well, you see Spike, Sir Nigel Gresley built our classes. Mine is the LNER Gresley Class A3 and Spencer and Olwin's class are the LNER Class A4. That's how we're cousins.
Connor Lacey: That explains it.
Norman Price: Whoa.
Sarah Jones: That's totally brilliant!
Olwin: Yes indeed. Spencer says that I'm a slowcoach since I don't go fast often which he thinks is a disgrace to our class.
Raven Queen: You poor thing.
Olwin: I know.
Connor Lacey: Anyway, what did Spencer say to you and your friends, Thomas?
Thomas: Well, Connor, like we all said just now, he told Toby he was too old.
Gordon: He's taken over my express line.
James: He'II never have a shiny coat like mine.
Edward: He'II never have manners.
Shi La Won: What a meanie.
Fu Fu: (growls in agreement)
Olwin: I wish we could teach him a lesson.
James Jones: Me too.
Luigi Bellini: I don't think I want to be friends with a creep like him.
Rainbow Dash: And that goes double for me as well.
Pinkie Pie: And me too. It's no fun being bullied.
Cerise Hood: Yes.
Loretta Callisto: So, what should we do about it?
Twilight Sparkle: I don't know, Loretta.
Percy: Spencer's scary.
[The scene changes to Brendam Docks the next day]
Narrator: The next day, Thomas was at Brendam Docks. He had a heavy flatbed of machinery to collect.
Fireman Sam: Well, I hope you know what you're doing. Heavy metal can be dangerous.
Thomas: I do know how to handle heavy loads, Sam.
Connor Lacey: It's nice that The Fat Controller is letting us help Thomas again with his work today.
Dottie: (saw Spencer) Hey, guys, look who it is.
Narrator: Spencer was there. He was being coupled up to five flatbeds of building materials.
Twilight Sparkle: I bet that must be Spencer that Thomas and his friends told us about.
Luigi Bellini: Oh. Now the brother-sister thing make sense. They're the same basis.
[Spencer looks over at them and sees Olwin]
Spencer: Hello, Olwin.
Frankie Stein: Hello, Spencer.
Spencer: I see my slowcoach sister have brought some friends to come to Sodor, I see. How's your work in Chuggington? Being slow and not fast as usual?
Olwin: As boring as it may seem, Spencer, it has been quite been between the two.
Spencer: You must be the Irelanders I've heard about on the mainland. Not impressive and important as I see.
Norman Price: Hey!
Rochelle Goyle: No one talks about us like that!
Jinafire Long: Yeah!
Spencer: Dear, oh dear, Thomas. It's just as well The Duke and Duchess don't have a tiny toy tank engine like you with some little help from some humans, a dragon, some ponies, vehicles, kids, animals and Olwin. The summer house would never be finished.
Thomas: What do you mean?
Spencer: I mean Thomas, you just can't pull heavy loads.
Rainbow Dash: Hey! Now wait a minute. Just because Thomas is only a tank engine doesn't mean he can't pull heavy loads.
Connor Lacey: Rainbow Dash is right. He pulls many heavy loads all the time. And he's not a toy!
Olwin: And I think you should be paying more attention to others rather than yourself all the time, Spencer.
Donald Duck: In other words, you've gone too far!
Thomas: Yeah, Spencer. I can pull just as heavy loads as you.
Percy: Yes, he can! Even heavier!
Gordon: Thomas is not a toy.
Connor Lacey: Yeah, you tell him, Gordon!
Edward: He's a really useful engine.
James: And he's very strong.
Shi La Won: Here, here!
Fu Fu: (growls angrily)
Narrator: The Sodor engines didn't scare Spencer. An idea had bubbled in his boiler.
Spencer: Very well, Thomas. Meet me tomorrow at dawn at the shunting yards. We will have a contest of strength. We will each pull a heavy load and we'II see who can pull it for longer and for further.
Narrator: Spencer slid slyly out of the Docks. Suddenly, Thomas felt very worried.
Thomas: Bust my buffers! I can't do this. Spencer will win a contest of strength.
Narrator: The other engines saw that their friend was worried.
Fireman Sam: Tell you what, Thomas. We'll help you.
Percy: You're the number one engine on Sodor and you'II show Spencer that Sodor engines are more special than he is. I know that because you're my best friend.
Narrator: Thomas look at his best friend, Percy. Percy believed in him.
Thomas: I will meet Spencer at dawn and I will win.
Connor Lacey: That's right.
Marco Polo: Count us in.
Olwin: Me too.
Applejack: We're going too, sugarcube. We sure ain't lettin' any friend of ours going to race with that stuck-up engine alone. We're stickin' to you like caramel on a candy apple.
Everypony: [agreed hmph]
Pinkie Pie: Especially if there's candy apples during the race.
Twilight Sparkle: And I'II use my magic in case something might go wrong.
Clawdia Wolf: Good thinking.
Menasor (PWT): Right.
Otto (Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!): We'II show Spencer that he is wrong for calling you a toy.
Thomas: Thanks, Connor and everyone. I can rely on you to help me win the race.
[The scene changes to the next morning]
Narrator: Early the next morning in the cold light of dawn, Thomas, his friends and the Irelanders waited for Spencer. They could see a streak of silver engine puffing towards them. It was Spencer. Thomas felt worried.
Thomas: I can't do this, Percy.
Percy: Yes, you can, Thomas. You always tell us we can do whatever we want to. So can you.
Spike: And we're with you all the way too, Thomas.
Fireman Sam: And we'll be there for safety reasons.
Connor Lacey: I think this is the perfect opportunity to teach your sibling a lesson, Olwin.
Olwin: You might be right.
Narrator: The tracks were cleared for Spencer and Thomas and both engines were coupled up to their heavy loads. Edward puff forward. Edward: You will each take different tracks round the island. You may only stop for coal and water. Narrator: Then, Edward whistled, long and hard. The contest has begun. Spencer and Thomas pumped their pistons. Thomas puff off with a heave and a huff. Thomas: I can do it. I'II puff for longer. I'II show Spencer I really am stronger. Narrator: Spencer smiled as he slid away. Spencer: I'II show Thomas who's strong and who's weak. He'II puff home with a squeak and a creak. Narrator: The other engines watched and worried. Then they blew their whistles long and strong. All: Good luck, Thomas! [The scene changes to the countryside where Thomas, Olwin, The Irelanders and Spencer raced each other] Narrator: Thomas and Spencer puff around the island. They clittering-clack along the tracks. They whooshed through woods and they huffed up hills. Spencer steamed and smiled. He raced and he roared. Thomas puffed and huffed. He heaved and he hauled. Connor Lacey: Don't give up, Thomas! Twilight Sparkle: You can do it, little T! Razer: We believe in you! Tom Thomas: Come on, mate! Marco Polo: We're counting on you to win, Thomas. Olwin: You can do it, little chugg-a-chug! Robecca Steam: Come on! Spencer: Silly little engine. When will he learn? Thomas: You can do whatever you want to and I want to win. Narrator: Thomas was huffing up a steep slope. He was puffing and panting and his axles ached. At last he reached the top. Thomas: Hooray! I did it! [Thomas clanked] Narrator: Then there was trouble. There was a clank and a prang. Thomas gasped. Thomas: (gasps) Cinders and ashes! I've broken my brakes! Connor Lacey: What?! [The team gasp] Marco Polo: Hang on, everyone! It's going to be a bumpy ride!!! Narrator: Thomas' wheels started to whir and to wobble. He flew faster and faster down the hill. Thomas: Oh, no! Oh, help! Narrator: Thomas raced down one hill and rattled up the next. [The Irelanders scream as Thomas flies down the hill] Thomas: Help! I can't stop! Narrator: Thomas' heavy trucks pushed him on and on, through a junction where Spencer was waiting. Thomas: Whoa! Spencer: Blistering Boilers! Narrator: And into some potato trucks. Potatoes bounced everywhere. But Thomas sped on, into a flatbed of jam barrels. Sticky jam flew in the air and landed all over Thomas. But still, he went on and found himself rolling along an old rickety track. [Thomas whistles]
Narrator: Ahead, Thomas could see a thick wall of bushes.
Thomas: Fenders and funnels! How can I stop?!
Connor Lacey: Twilight, use your magic to slow him down!
Twilight Sparkle: Okay!
[Twilight uses her magic]
Sheriff: Nice work, Twilight. We're slowing down.
James Jones: But we're still going too fast.
Shi La Won: Watch out for those bushes, Thomas!
Fireman Sam: Brace yourselves!
Narrator: With a scrunch and a crunch, Thomas crashed into the bushes and came to a stop.
Thomas: Flaming fireboxes! That was scary.
The Irelanders: Whew!
Lightning McQueen: I'm glad that's over!
Mike Flood: Guess we should have checked the brakes weren't faulty first before we started the race.
Fireman Sam: Quite right, Mike. [to Thomas] And as for you, Thomas, you need to be more careful.
Thomas: I didn't know my brakes are going to be broken, Sam.
Fireman Sam: If you were going at that speed, something bad could've happened.
Thomas: I get it, Sam.
Fireman Sam: Good. Safety always comes first.
Chris Kratt: Huh. Well, that was kinda nuts.
Mandy Flood: It sure was.
Marco Polo: Well, that was an adventure.
Shi La Won: Huh. Some adventure. Next time, someone better check the brakes before starting a race.
Norman Price: (in Diego's voice) Yeah! Who's up for round 2?
Menasor (PWT): Norman!
Norman Price: What?
Sarah Jones: We can't do the same thing twice!
James Jones: Besides, I really don't like speed.
Spud The Scarecrow: Aw!
Thomas: I'm sorry if I was going too fast, James.
James Jones: That's alright.
Spike: But right now, we better figure out where exactly are we?
Computron (PWT): This place doesn't look familiar.
Kim Possible: I've never seen this place before.
Cedar Wood: Neither have I.
Narrator: Thomas looked around and so did the Irelanders. After the racing and rattling, it was very quiet.
Thomas: Spencer will be back at the shunting yards now. He'II be puffing with pride because he won the contest. And my best friend Percy will be wondering where I am.
Olwin: But you don't know where you are, dear.
Thomas: I know that, Olwin.
Rainbow Dash: Well, we're in the forest. I'm gonna fly up there and check it out.
[She's about to fly up but Applejack stop her by her tail]
Applejack: Hold on now. I think we should all stick together. Safety in numbers and all.
Rainbow Dash: Oh, all right.
Fluttershy: Does this forest look quieter to you, Rarity?
Rarity: But of course. Although, I must admit these woods are a fright. [step into mud] And look at the dirt everywhere. Uh.
James Jones: Well, this forest looks a bit scary. (whimpered in fright)
Connor Lacey: Don't worry. As long as we stay together, we're going to be okay.
Twilight Sparkle: Good.
Narrator: Everything was very quiet. Thomas and the Irelanders don't know what to do. Then, they heard a voice.
Male voice: Hello?
Fluttershy: Ah! What was that?
Fireman Sam: Hmm. I think that sounds like someone just said "hello".
Dottie: Don't be silly, Sam. We're the only ones in this forest.
Narrator: Thomas looked around. There was no one there. He waited, hardly daring to puff.
Marco Polo: Maybe we're just hearing things.
Olwin: Maybe you're right, dear. But it did sound like it was really a voice.
Male voice: Hello?
Pinkie Pie: There it is again.
Luigi Bellini: But who's saying hello?
Apple White: I don't know, Luigi.
Thomas: The voice seems to be coming from the bushes.
Finn McMissile: What do you think, Connor?
Connor Lacey: We should check it out.
Spike: But Connor, we don't even know who's saying "Hello".
Twilight Sparkle: Neither do I, Spike. But we're going to find out.
Jimmy Z: I'm not going in there. No way, no how.
Koki: Huh. No surprise.
Shi La Won: (to herself) Why do I get the feeling that that voice sounds familiar?
Chief Fire Officer Boyce: We better go and check to see who it is.
Narrator: Very slowly, Thomas chuffed forward into the bushes. The branches crackled and crunched. Then Thomas gasps. His eyes pop wide with wonder. There on the other side of the bushes was a very old engine. It was broken and rusty.
The Mane 6 and Spike: (gasps)
Fireman Sam: Great Fires of London!
Narrator: Thomas felt scared. He didn't dare speak.
Shi La Won: He looks familiar.
Connor Lacey: Hi.
Narrator: Then the old engine smiled at them. It was a little frighten smile but it made the old engine look kind and gentle and it made Thomas feel less scared.
Old engine: Hello. Too bad your brakes failed. Doesn't that always happen when you're on a hill?
Narrator: The old engine smiled again. Thomas wanted to smile too but he was scared. He didn't know whether to speak, toot for help or race backwards as fast as he could chuff. But Thomas didn't move. He couldn't take his eyes off this extraordinarily engine.
Thomas: Hello. My name is Thomas.
Old engine: (sighs) My name is Hiro. And what are your names, my little friends?
Connor Lacey: I'm Connor Lacey.

Twilight Sparkle: I'm Twilight Sparkle.
Lightning McQueen: I'm Lightning McQueen.
Dusty Crophopper: Dusty. Dusty Crophopper.
Olwin: I'm Olwin.
Fireman Sam: I'm Fireman Sam.
Spud the Scarecrow: I'm Spud. I'm a scarecrow!
Marco Polo: I'm Marco Polo.
All: And we're the Irelanders!
Hiro: (sighs) Pleased to meet you, Thomas, Connor and friends.
Shi La Won: (gasps) Hiro? Is it really you?
Hiro: Shi La? Could it be? After all these years?
Shi La: Hiro!
[Shi La went over to Hiro and hug him]
Shi La: I thought I never see you again, Hiro.
Hiro: Neither did I, Shi La.
Fu Fu: (chitters happily)
Hiro: Good to see you too, Fu Fu.
[The Irelanders and Thomas are confused]
Connor Lacey: What?
Duchess Swan: He's a friend of yours?
Shi La Won: Yep. His home, Japan is close to my home in China.
Hiro: We've known each other a long time when she's at the orphanage. But why are you here, Shi La?
Shi La: You see, Fu Fu and I was shipped onto a crate and ended up in Venice where I met Marco, Luigi, Connor and his friends. I traveled with them to get back to China and help Marco find his father, Niccolo Polo. I came here to visit Sodor until we ran into you. I knew this island sounded familiar.
Narrator: Thomas wasn't sure what to say next. He had never met an engine as old and strange as Hiro.
Thomas: Why are you here? Where have you been?
Rainbow Dash: What are you doing out here all by yourself? Forgotten by the outside world?
Hiro: (sighs) That's a very long story. Do you like stories, Thomas?
Thomas: Yes. The little engines in the hills tell me stories all the time.
Hiro: Then, I hope you and your friends like mine.
Connor Lacey: Then please. Tell us your story.
Hiro: I came here a long, long time ago from another island. I was one of the first steam engines to arrive on Sodor.
Narrator: Thomas was amazed.
Thomas: Where is your island?
[A flashback to when Hiro worked in Japan]
Hiro: My island is a long, long way away.
Shi La: And not too far from my home in China.
Hiro: There are mountains and snow and sea. There are a lot of railways. I was the strongest engine at home. I was called Master of the Railway.
Olwin: How did you get here to Sodor?
Hiro: I came in a very big ship. The journey lasted many days and we sailed many seas.
[It changes to a black and white camera footage of Hiro being unloaded]
Hiro: When I arrived at the docks, it didn't look at all like home.
Connor Lacey: What was Sodor like back then?
Hiro: It was very quiet. I was the only engine on Sodor. They called me Master of the Railway here too. I was very happy.
Twilight Sparkle: But then what happened?
Hiro: (sighs sadly) I started to break down. The mechanics didn't have parts for me. So, I was put in a siding. I had to wait for parts from my island. I waited and waited. And now, I'm sure the parts will never come.
Narrator: Thomas' eyes were wide with wonder.
Thomas: Do you miss your home?
Hiro: Yes, I do. I miss being Master of the Railway.
Martin Kratt: Oh, no! Hiro must have been forgotten all those years.
[The Mane 6 look at the ground sadly]
Fluttershy: He does look very sad, Martin.
Dilys Price: You poor thing.
Twilight Sparkle: Well, I kinda feel very sorry for Hiro for being forgotten and left here on this siding in the woods.
Shi La Won: I thought Hiro's going to have a great time on Sodor but I never know this would happen.
Fireman Sam: He must have been here during our two visits to Sodor.
Penny Morris: Left alone and all forgotten.
Fu Fu: (sobs)
Koki: The poor engine.
Connor Lacey: There must be something we can do to help.
Rarity: Like what, darling?
Connor Lacey: Well, why don't we ask The Fat Controller if he can fix Hiro?
Twilight Sparkle: What a wonderful idea, Connor. He is in charge of this railway now. He'II know what to do.
Thomas: Of course. That's a great idea, Connor. I will go and tell him right now.
Hiro: No! No! Please don't do that. You must not tell The Fat Controller.
Aviva Corcovado: Why not?
Hiro: I'm an old engine that cannot be repaired. I know what happens to old engines that cannot be really useful. (sighs) They're scrapped and sent to the Smelters' Yard.
[The team gasps]
Shi La Won: No. I cannot allow that to happen.
Fu Fu: (chitters in agreement)
Thomas: That's not fair. That's not right. That can't happen to you.
Fireman Sam: This is serious. We all need to think really hard.
Narrator: Thomas could see that his new friend who was once Master of the Railway, was now old, alone and scared. So Thomas made a decision.
Thomas: I will look after you, Hiro. I won't tell The Fat Controller until you are fixed. You're safe with me. I'm sure I can find the parts to fix you. I promise I will make you a really useful engine once more. I will make you Master of the Railway again.
The Mane 6: All right!
Applejack: Yee-haw! Now that's a brilliant idea.
Connor Lacey: Good thinking, Thomas!
Shi La Won: Thank you, thank you, all!
Derek Price: It's the least we can do.
Fireman Sam: We will help Thomas get some parts to fix you, Hiro.
Chug: That's right.
Marco Polo: Count us in. We're be helping Connor and his friends find all the right parts for you so you won't have to be here anymore.
Rainbow Dash: All right, girls. You heard him. The fate of Hiro is in our hooves. Do we have what it takes?
Applejack, Pinkie Pie and Rarity: We can do it.
Spike: Wait. What if the other engines find out?
Olwin: Well, if they get suspicious, Spike, we're just have to tell them without The Fat Controller to know. There has to be a way.
Narrator: Hiro smiled the biggest smile he had smiled in a long, long time.
Hiro: Thank you, everyone. Thank you for looking after me. Narrator: Thomas puffed with pride.
[The scene changes to the Steamworks]
Narrator: Later that morning, Thomas was at the Sodor Steamworks. He was having his brakes fixed. Thomas liked the Steamworks. There was hustle and bustle, sparks and spanners. It was lively and friendly. And there was Victor. Thomas liked Victor. Victor: Thomas? Tell me, my friend. What were you doing there in the middle of nowhere, pulling 7 loaded flatbeds? Are you crazy? Next time Spencer tells you to do something silly, do me a favor will you? And your little friends as well. Say no? Thomas: Okay, Victor. Narrator: Thomas had almost forgotten about the contest with Spencer. His boiler was bubbbling with excitement over Hiro. He wanted to tell Victor but he knew he couldn't. Other engines might hear and then someone might tell The Fat Controller.
Martin Kratt: So, this is where Thomas was painted into the number 1 engine here?
Connor Lacey: Yup. It's also where Thomas was painted blue as well.
The Mane 6: Huh?
Rarity: Wait. You mean he wasn't always blue?
Razer: Right. When we first met him, he was painted teal-green with white-and-yellow lining and has LBSC lettering and the number 70 on him too when he came to Sodor from Brighton on the mainland.
James Jones: And not only that, my engine counterpart wasn't always red either. When we first met him, he was a black engine to start with. He also have wooden brakes.
Chris Kratt: Whoa. Then what happened?
Sarah Jones: Then James' engine counterpart crashed into a cow field, so Thomas came to his rescue with Judy and Jerome the breakdown train and he was repaired and repainted into a red engine while Thomas have finally became a really useful engine. That's how he got his own branch line.
Martin Kratt: Wow! You must've been quite the hero, Thomas!
Thomas: I was!
Luigi Bellini: He must be tried his best to become really useful, right?
Spud the Scarecrow: Well, not quite, Luigi. He did have some mishaps along the way like leaving his passenger train behind and couldn't handle the Troublesome Trucks when he first pull them.
Thomas: Okay, Spud. You don't have to tell them about the mishaps I've had.
Spud the Scarecrow: Oh, sorry.
Twilight Sparkle: Well, what ever Thomas did in the past, it's probably best to put those behind us.
Marco Polo: You're right, Twilight. We don't want to bring back embarrassing stories about what happened back in the past.
Fireman Sam: Thomas and James aren't the only ones who has previous appearances.
Martin Kratt: Who else?
Connor Lacey: Henry.
Shi La Won: What does Henry's got to do with this?
Connor Lacey: Well, to start off with, Henry wasn't always as we see him now. He had a old shape with a small firebox which doesn't give enough heat to make steam.
[The others gasp]
Fluttershy: The poor thing.
Koki: Yeah, poor Henry.
Marco Polo: How did The Fat Controller make him feel better?
Connor Lacey: Well, when we met Henry again, he told us that after we left before winter and two months, he's been given special Welsh coal that made him feel better.
Fireman Sam: It came from Wales where our hometown, Pontypandy is.
Norman Price: We were very surprised when he told us that.
Luigi Bellini: What happened next?
Connor Lacey: Well, Henry was pulling a fish train called the Flying Kipper when he went onto some frozen points to a siding since the snowstorm forces the signal down and crashed into the back of a train via the brakevan.
Poppy O'Hair: Oh, my!
Fluttershy: How horrible.
Martin Kratt: Ooh, that must've hurt.
[Fu Fu chitters in agreement]
Olwin: Did he get fixed?
Connor Lacey: Yes, only he had the shape we see him in now.
Chris Kratt: How?
Fireman Sam: Well, the Fat Controller sent him to Crewe, an engine workshop on the Mainland for sick engines. They give him a larger firebox and a brand new shape so he won't need special Welsh coal anymore.
Connor Lacey: And that's how Henry got the way he is now.
Marco, Shi La, Luigi, The Mane 6, Spike, Olwin and The Wild Kratts: Whoa.
Olwin: Is this where chuggers came to be fixed on Sodor?
Connor Lacey: It sure is.
Olwin: Then, why's it called Steamworks?
Robonyan F: Because only steam engines can be fixed here. And you're a steam engine.
Olwin: Back in Chuggington, the repair shed fix steam and diesel chuggers. Where do the diesels get fixed?
Fireman Sam: Hmm. I'm not quite sure.
Jimmy Z: Um, guys?
Martin Kratt: What is it?
Jimmy Z: We got company.
Spencer: So, there you are Thomas. Broken down I see. Seven flatbeds must have just be too heavy for you.
Chris Kratt: So what if they were? He still would've won, if his brakes hadn't failed.
Spencer: Well, at least it proves that Thomas' not so very strong after all.
Koki: I'm really started to hate that silver speedster.
Thomas: Good morning, Spencer. Well done.
Narrator: Spencer was amazed. He wasn't expecting Thomas to be cheery.
Spencer: Uh, what do you say?
Thomas: I said "Good morning" and "well done".
Spencer: I... I....
Victor: Do you have a job to do, Spencer or are you just gonna stand here, chatting? You're taking up a lot of track.
Narrator: Spencer was shocked.
Spencer: No one speaks to me like that!
Narrator: Then, Spencer slid away, sneering.
Spencer: (muttering) I can't believe....
Shi La Won: Ooh, Victor, you really put your wheel in it then.
[Fu Fu chitters in agreement]
Victor: He's all silver steam and bossy boiler that one.
Narrator: Thomas laughed. He like Victor.
Victor: I'm sorry that he's related to you, Olwin.
Olwin: Never mind, dear.
Mickey Mouse: I'm sure we can sort him out, won't we, boy?
[Pluto barks and panted]
Martin Kratt: That's the spirit.
Victor: Okay, my friend, you're all fixed. Please stay away from Mr Silver Steam. The Fat Controller needs you on your branch line.
Thomas: Thank you, Victor.
[A bang is heard and everyone turns to the yellow crane]
Kevin: Sorry, boss.
Victor: (sighs) Kevin. What are you doing? How many times do I have to tell you? You don't drop things, you lower things. Slowly, slowly. Gently, gently.
Kevin: Yes, boss. Sorry, boss. I was trying, boss. Just a slip of me hook.
Martin Kratt: Hi, name's Martin. Martin Kratt.
Chris Kratt: I'm his brother, Chris.
Aviva Corcovado: I'm Aviva Corcovado. But you can call me Aviva.
Koki: My name's Koki.
Jimmy Z: I'm Jimmy Z but you can call me Jimmy.
Martin Kratt: Together, we're the Wild Kratts!
Kevin: Nice to meet you.
Connor Lacey: Hey guys, look. A flatbed with an old cylinder on it.
[They look at it]
Chris Kratt: Whoa.
Olwin: That would make a good engine part for Hiro.
Shi La Won: Yes.
Manny Taur: That could work.
Fluttershy: But won't Victor mind if we can take the part away from him?
Thomas: I'm sure he will, Fluttershy. We're come back for that later after I finish my work.
Narrator: Thomas puff away, excited.
[The scene changes to Thomas and the Irelanders delivering straw trucks]
Narrator: That afternoon, Thomas was busy on his branch line. He wanted to finish his jobs as fast as he can puff. Percy: Tell me all about the contest, Thomas. Thomas: I'm sorry, Percy. I can't stop. I've so much to do. I'II tell you all about it later. Narrator: Percy was disappointed. Percy: Bye, then, Thomas.
[The scene changes to the Irelanders pondering Thomas' decision]
Fireman Sam: Did you really have to tell Percy that, Thomas?
James Jones: He's your best friend and friends should always let one another in on a secret.
Thomas: I know, but I need to finish all my jobs quickly so that I can take that part to Hiro. I'II tell Percy when we're done.
Marco Polo: Okay, if you say so.
[The scene changes to back at the Steamworks where Thomas and The Irelanders are entering]
Narrator: Later, Thomas and the Irelanders came back to the Sodor Steamworks. They were pleased to see it was very quiet.
Connor Lacey: Victor. What's to become that old cylinder over there?
Victor: That pile of junk? It just taking up space.
Elvis Cridlington: So, you won't mind if we take it do you?
Victor: Isn't Thomas busy, my friend?
Thomas: No. I can take it easily.
Kevin: Would you like a helping hook?
Thomas: No, thank you Kevin.
Narrator: So Thomas was coupled to the flatbed and they went away along towards the track that lead to Hiro. Then they heard the clatter of wheels and pounding pistons of a big engine behind them.
Thomas: (gasps) It's Spencer. I don't want him to see us. He'II wonder that we're doing with this old cylinder.
Olwin: You hide, dear and I'll distract him.
Chris Kratt: Quick! Into those bushes.
Connor Lacey: Come on!
Narrator: Thomas huff and puffed as fast as he could towards a siding. His boiler bubbled as he slowed to a stop.
Marco Polo: Hide.
Fluttershy: Phew. Made it.
Narrator: Spencer's rattle and roar came closer and closer as he rolled by. Then Spencer stop and reversed. He was on the other side of the trees to Thomas. Thomas hardly dare puff.
Rainbow Dash: (whispering) Hey, Kim. Do you think he's spotted us?
Kim Possible: I'm not sure.
Olwin: Hello, Spencer. What are you doing here?
Spencer: Delivering supplies to the summer house, of course. What are you doing? Being tenderless?
Olwin: Well, I was looking for my friends and I was wondering if you'd seen them.
Spencer: No, I haven't seen them but I thought I heard something.
Olwin: There's nothing to hear but the birds, dear.
[Fu Fu chitters and fly up but Shi La grabs him and pulls him out of sight]
Olwin: Well, don't waste your time standing around looking for the sound you heard, those supplies won't deliver themselves you know.
[He steams off]
Sparky: That was a close one. Spencer also caught us.
Thomas: I'II say, Sparky.
Olwin: He's gone. You can come out.
Connor Lacey: Thanks for the distraction, Olwin.
Norman Price: Spencer could have spotted us because of that stupid noisy bat!
Shi La Won: Hey!
Norman Price: Guess you haven't taught him to be quiet but then again, he can't since he's a wild animal and they belong in the wild, not with humans.
Shi La Won: Fu Fu and I are best friends. No way am I sending him back to the wild.
[She then use her karate skills on Norman, making fall flat to the ground]
Norman Price: Ouch!
Spud the Scarecrow: Just to remind you, Shi La, Koki and I know karate. (doing his karate skills and noises) See?
Koki: Yeah, Spud, we get it.
Shi La: He-he.
Marco Polo: Okay guys, that's enough. I know Fu Fu sometimes nearly blows our cover, Norman but he's not stupid.
[The others nod in agreement]
Thomas: Besides, we better get going and get this part to Hiro.
[The scene changes to the Irelanders and Thomas arriving at Hiro's hideout]
Narrator: Hiro was very happy to see everyone. Thomas' driver and fireman unloaded the old cylinder.
[Shi La smiles at Hiro]
Shi La: Did you know, Hiro that Fu Fu saves me from a white tiger?
Hiro: No, I did not actually. We haven't spoken to each other in a long time.
Shi La: I know. It all started when we're traveling through India when Fu Fu gets snatched by Jayanti's brother, Adi who thought Fu Fu is the Great Bat Defender who is destined to fight a white tiger like his village and his mother, Padma. I doubt that at first until I got stuck in a trap, me and my friends made.
Hiro: Oh, my.
Connor Lacey: But then Fu Fu attacks the tiger and after we got Shi La out of the pit, Fu Fu lure it into it and we caught him.
Marco Polo: And that's how Fu Fu saves Shi La's life. I was a bit worried.
Talia: I know.
Silverbolt (G1): What an adventure.
Chris Kratt: Who ever thought that little bat can take on a big animal?
Martin Kratt: That was some creature power. Apart from his love for Shi La, of course.
Shi La: Thanks.
Thomas: Tomorrow Hiro, we're come back and we can start work. I have to go back to Tidmouth Sheds now. The other engines will be wondering where my friends and I am.
Hiro: Thank you, Thomas.
Narrator: Thomas smiled and steam quickly away and puff back towards Tidmouth. He chuffed around a bend, then he gasped.
Thomas: (gasps) Cinders and ashes!
Connor Lacey: What's wrong Thomas?
Thomas: Look over there, Connor. The Duke and Duchess of Boxford's summer house is very close to Hiro's hiding place.
Norman Price: (gasps) Do you know what this means? Spencer will be coming here every single day.
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, no! You're right, Norman. And if Spencer keeps coming here, he's one step closer to finding out about Hiro each time.
Aviva Corcovado: And if he does, he'II tell the Fat Controller and then he'II surely be sending Hiro to the Smelters' Yard for good.
Shi La: No!
Fu Fu: [worried chitter]
Marco Polo: Don't worry, Shi La. We'II make sure that won't happened but what can we do?
Olwin: Well, I could keep him distracted whilst you move behind him very quickly.
Fireman Sam: Hmm. It sounds risky, Olwin, but we must do our best to keep this a secret from your brother until Hiro is fully repaired and ready to be a really useful engine again.
Twilight Sparkle: So, I suggest we avoid him until then.
Thomas: You're both right. We must do our best to protect Hiro. We're have to be very, very careful.
[The scene changes to Tidmouth Sheds at night]
Narrator: That night, Thomas told his friends all about his contest with Spencer. He was going to tell them about Hiro but the Fat Controller arrived. [He walks over] The Fat Controller: Tomorrow, you all have a very busy day. Your jobs will start especially early. So Thomas, don't puff around the island pulling heavy loads or any other silly ideas. I need really useful engines, not really broken ones. Thomas: Yes, sir. Narrator: Now, Thomas didn't dare tell his friends about Hiro. The Fat Controller had spoken, "No broken engines".
Twilight Sparkle: Uh, maybe it's time we all got a little shut-eye. We've got a big day ahead of us tomorrow.
Fireman Sam: Right.
Penny Morris: At least we make a start, finding the right part for Hiro. (yawns) Night, everyone.
Rainbow Dash: [yawns] I gotta admit I'm pretty beat.
Applejack: Yeah, I'm gonna hit the hay myself.
Olwin: Night, dears. (went off to a shed nearby)
Spud the Scarecrow: Night, everyone.
Twilight Sparkle: Goodnight, Spike. [giggle] Sweet dreams, number one assistant.
[Twilight, Fireman Sam, Marco, Chris, Martin, Aviva and Connor remained awake when they saw Shi La looking at the sky, sadly]
Aviva: What's wrong Shi La?
Shi La: I was thinking about Hiro, Aviva. He has been left in the woods for a very long time and has been forgotten since he broke down. it must haven been quite sad that he is no longer The Master of the Railway and felt very lonely.
[Aviva hugs Shi La to comfort her]
Aviva: He'll be fine, Shi La. Besides, we helped anyone. Broken down engine or not.
Twilight Sparkle: Aviva's right, Shi La. He won't be sad and alone any more now that he's got us to protect him and once he's fixed, he will be the Master of the Railway once more. We just need to get all the parts Hiro needs to get himself working once again.
Fireman Sam: He will be as good as new once we repair him. We just have to make sure Spencer doesn't find out about him.
Connor Lacey: Yeah. Don't you worry.
Chris Kratt: Your friend is going to be A-okay!
Marco Polo: Shi La, I know you're worried for Hiro but we'II do whatever it takes to help him. I promise.
Shi La: Thanks.
Martin Kratt: Like a talking cat would say "Everything's gonna turn out purrfect.".
[Chris Kratt thumbs up]
Fu Fu: (chitters in agreement)
Shi La: (to Martin) Good pun, Martin.
Martin Kratt: Thanks. I was great at that.
Fireman Sam: I think we better get some sleep now.
Connor Lacey: Right.
[They head to bed]
[The scene changes to the next day]
Narrator: The next day, Thomas had a very busy morning but he wasn't happy. He wanted to be with Hiro.
Applejack: Is Thomas feeling okay?
Charlie Jones: I think he's thinking about Hiro.
Metroplex (PWT): He's not the only one. (he gestures to Shi La)
Shi La: I hope Hiro was okay, sleeping under the stars.
Koki: Of course, he's okay, Shi La.
Martin Kratt: Maybe we should pay him a visit.
Fireman Sam: We can't at the moment, Martin.
Martin Kratt: I meant afterwards, obviously.
Connor Lacey: Yeah, cause right now, Thomas have so much work to do.
Twilight Sparkle: You're right there, Connor. We gotta find a way to get Thomas and Shi La to see Hiro again.
[The Irelanders all think about it]
Marco Polo: I know. Another engine can cover Thomas' work for us.
Rarity: But who will be able to take over Thomas' work for us?
Marco Polo: Would you do it, Olwin?
Olwin: I would, except I had to help you get past Spencer, remember?
Marco Polo: Oh, yeah.
Raven Queen: I hope another engine will come by.
Rainbow Dash: Hey, there's one coming right now.
James Jones: It's Percy.
Tom Thomas: Hey, Percy mate. Can we have a quick chat?
Percy: Sure, Tom. What's the matter?
Connor Lacey: Well, we're just gonna tell you something but you got to make sure Spencer doesn't hear. Got it?
Thomas: We've found the oldest engine on Sodor. His name is Hiro. Percy: Bust my buffers! Where? Thomas: We're show you later. I promise. He need us to look after him. Will you help us? Percy: Of course, I will, Thomas. What can I do? Thomas: Please, will you take this flatbed farm machinery to Farmer McColl for me? Percy: But should I do with my mail trucks? Mike Flood: Why don't you pretend you lost them? Helen Flood: No, Mike. Chris Kratt: I think you should hide them somewhere safe for now. Somewhere right off the tracks and later you can carry on with your mail delivery. Percy: Okay. Thomas: Now, I chuff away to Hiro as quickly as we can. Raven Queen: Make sure you get that machinery with you. Olwin: Ta-ra, Percy. Narrator: Percy was excited. He was happy to help Thomas. [The scene changes to Percy on the main line] Narrator: Percy had puff a long way. He was on tracks he didn't know. He was looking for somewhere to hid his mail trucks. Percy: Must find somewhere right off the track. My trucks must be safe until I get back. [He stop when he saw a line went into some woods] Percy: This is the perfect place to leave my trucks. No one will find them here.
[He puff into the woods and the scene changes to the Irelanders, Olwin and Thomas heading to Hiro's hideout]
Narrator: Thomas along with Olwin and The Irelanders on board puff happily towards Hiro's hideout. They were so busy thinking about helping Hiro that they didn't see Spencer steaming up behind them.
Spencer: What are you, Olwin and your little friends doing here, Thomas? You're a long way, away from your branch line.
Olwin: Oh, hello, Spencer, we're just clearing our heads, aren't we dears?
Irelanders: Um, right.
[Fu Fu wanted to bite Spencer but Shi La pull him back]
Shi La: Fu Fu! Don't bite.
Norman Price: Ha. Told ya.
Shi La: Norman!
Spencer: Don't be offensive towards your friend's pet. [quietly to himself] Even though I don't care.
Connor Lacey: That's enough, Norman.
Dilys Price: That's right.
Thomas: Anyway, we're on our way to.. Brendam Docks.
Narrator: Thomas raced away from Spencer and the summer house as quickly as his pistons can pump.
Spencer: This is very strange. Very strange indeed.
Narrator: Thomas didn't dare chuff to Hiro until much later.
Hiro: I thought you weren't coming, everyone.
Shi La: We're sorry we're late, Hiro. We ran into Spencer on the way here.
Connor Lacey: We had to get another engine to do Thomas' jobs for him, Hiro.
Rainbow Dash: We have to make a fib to Spencer in order to avoid suspicion.
Thomas: But at least we're here now. Like I said before, I'm not going to let you down.
Applejack: Right. I brought some tools with me. So now we can attach that cylinder on Hiro.
Mike Flood: Koki, Dottie and I can help you with that, AJ.
Koki: Well, I don't repair engines before but okay.
Dottie: Well, I'll give it a whirl!
Applejack: Okay, let's get-a-doin'.
Norman Price: Let me do it. I'II prove I'm good at fixing.
[He started to use the hammer to bang the cylinder on Hiro very fast in a blur but Shi La stop him by grabbing him by the back of his coat]
Shi La: Norman! Not too hard! Fixing an engine can't be done that fast.
Norman Price: What's the matter? Am I putting the cylinder the wrong way round?
Shi La: No. You're making Hiro even more damaged than he already is.
Twilight Sparkle: Um, maybe you let Applejack, Mike, Koki and Dottie fix Hiro, Norman.
Fireman Sam: I agree. Those tools belong to Applejack, Mike, Koki and Dottie. Not you.
Spud the Scarecrow: Yeah. I once took Bob's tool kit and cause damage by not fixing things properly and a wind blew me to the roof of a house and got me stuck.
Derek Price: That's quite the memory.
Norman Price: All right. I'II let them do it.
Applejack: All right then. Let's get that old cylinder into place.
Mike Flood: Right.
[They get to work]
Narrator: Soon, Hiro's piston rods were in place.
Applejack: There you go, Hiro. The first part is attached.
Connor Lacey: Don't worry, Hiro. We'II come back with some more spare parts for you as soon as we can.
Hiro: Thank you, Connor. Please don't get into trouble for me. Especially Thomas and Shi La as well. I'm a old engine.
Thomas: And we will make you new again. Bye, Hiro.
[They set off]
Narrator: Thomas was puffing home as fast as his pistons can pump. He was late. He had to puff past the summer house.
Spencer: Thomas? You, Olwin and your little friends are up to something, aren't you?
Narrator: Thomas didn't answer. He chuff quickly away. Spencer followed, close behind. Thomas was puffing fast. Then Thomas, Olwin and the Irelanders saw Percy at the water tower. Percy look sad.
Luigi: What's wrong, Percy?
Percy: I popped a valve when I was pulling the heavy farm machinery.
Narrator: Thomas felt sorry for his friend.
Marco Polo: How can I be so foolish?
[Sam gives him a comforting pat]
Fireman Sam: Don't worry, Marco. We didn't know Percy's gonna burst a valve. At least your idea help Shi La see Hiro again.
[Marco look at Shi La who smiles at him]
Shi La: Yeah. Thank you, Marco.
Marco Polo: You're welcome. (blushes)
Yuya Sakaki: Aw.
Narrator: Spencer had followed Thomas. He steam to a stop.
Spencer: Dear, oh dear, Percy. You should let a stronger engine pull the heavy load.
Narrator: Spencer chuffed on.
Rarity: My, my, my. What rudeness and boasting.
Olwin: Yeah, I don't even know why I'm related to him.
Spencer: (in the distance) I heard that, Olwin!
Thomas: I'm sorry, Percy. You were helping us. Now, you've broken down.
Percy: I'm worried, Thomas. I still haven't deliver the mail. The Fat Controller will be cross.
Thomas: Don't worry, Percy. Tomorrow, we'II help you.
Ishani: We'II find those trucks once you're fixed.
Chris Kratt: (whispering) Yuya, what's the "aw" moment?
Yuya Sakaki: I think Marco is starting to develop feelings for Shi La.
Chris Kratt: Huh? How you know about that?
Yuya Sakaki: I saw his cheeks turn red.
Chris Kratt: Like his clothes and hat?
[Pinkie did the classic drum and cymbals sound in the background]
Thomas: [chuckles with Percy]
Trevor Evans: So, what now?
Olwin: We better get the little chuga-chug to the Steamworks.
Spike: Good idea, Olwin. I'm sure Victor would make him as good as new.
Narrator: All the way to the Sodor Steamworks, the good friends chattered and chuckled about Hiro.
[They went to the Steamworks]
Narrator: The Sodor Steamworks was quiet. Victor was very surprised to see Thomas, Olwin and the Irelanders came in with Percy. Victor: Flaming fireboxes. What's happened now, my friends? Thomas: I asked Percy to pull my special for me. His valve popped. Victor: Why didn't you pull it yourself? Thomas: Um.. Because I, uh.... Percy: Because he... Oh! [A bang make everyone cringe and turn to Kevin] Victor: Oh! Kevin! Slowly, slowy. Gently, gently. Kevin: Sorry, boss. Just a slip of the... Victor: Hook. I know. Marco Polo: Please don't be cross with Thomas, Victor. It was really my fault that Percy broke down. We just wanted someone to cover Thomas' work for us. Victor: What do you mean by that, Marco? Rainbow Dash: Okay. Maybe we should tell Victor the truth. Don't you agree, Shi La? Shi La: Um, well.... Thomas: It's okay, Shi La. I'II tell Victor what we're doing. Victor: Tell me what, Thomas? Narrator: Then Thomas saw the old parts. He knew Hiro needed them. He knew he would have to tell Victor about Hiro. Thomas: Victor, I need your help. Percy: We need your help. Victor: I'II always help you my friend. What is it you need? Narrator: So, Thomas told Victor about Hiro. Victor was amazed. Victor: Very good. Looking after another engine is very important. Especially looking after an old engine. Tell the Fat Controller. Connor Lacey: No. We can't tell him. He'll send Hiro to the Smelters' yard. Perceptor (PWT): Connor's right. But if we fix Hiro and make him a really useful engine once more, that will never happen. Victor: Okay. I understand. And Thomas. Whatever I put in this corner of the yard, you and your friends can take. Narrator: Thomas and Percy are very happy. Thomas: Thank you, Victor. Victor: Okay, Percy. Your turn to be fixed.
[The scene changes to Tidmouth Sheds]
Narrator: That evening, Thomas puff into Tidmouth Sheds. The Fat Controller was waiting. He was cross.
Pinkie Pie: Uh-oh.
Norman Price: I think we're in trouble.
The Fat Controller: Connor and Thomas, I hear Percy was pulling Thomas' special instead of delivering the mail. And now Percy's mail trucks are missing.
Connor Lacey: We're ever so sorry, sir. We didn't mean for Percy to broke down and we don't even know where his mail trucks are.
Apple White: Yeah.
Thomas: But our friends and I will help Percy find them tomorrow.
The Fat Controller: That's exactly what all of you do tomorrow. By my order! (echoes)
Narrator: The Fat Controller's voice boomed round Tidmouth Sheds from top to tracks.
Elvis Cridlington: Wow! That was even louder than Station Officer Steele.
Station Officer Steele: I heard that, Cridlington!
Narrator:. All the other engines looked at Thomas, Olwin and the Irelanders. They knew something's strange was going on.
Edward: Thomas? Are you and Connor all right?
Olwin: I think we better tell them.
Narrator: Thomas huff a huge puff. He needed his friends' help.
Thomas: (sighs) We have something very important to tell you.
Narrator: As the stars sparkled above Tidmouth, Thomas, Olwin and the Irelanders told them all about Hiro. The engines had never heard such a amazing story.
[The scene changes to the next day]
Narrator: The next morning, Thomas was a really useful engine. He huffed and he puffed. He shoved and he shunted, without stopping to ease his axles. Spencer watch Olwin and Thomas' every wheel turn and piston pump. Spencer didn't go to work at the Duke and Duchess' summer house. He was too busy watching Olwin and Thomas to see Gordon go by pulling a flatbed of old engine parts for Hiro. Thomas and Olwin saw Gordon. Gordon saw Thomas and Olwin and they smiled. [Gordon set off] Narrator: Thomas had worked hard all day. He and Olwin have to pick up Connor and his friends on his way to the Sodor Steamworks. Gordon steam towards Olwin and Thomas. Gordon was beaming from buffer to buffer. He was very happy to be helping Hiro. Gordon: Job done! Job done! Now, I must hurry. The Express mustn't be late. Olwin: I'm so glad you helped out, dear. Connor Lacey and Gigi Grant: You're a great friend. Thomas: Well done, Gordon! Gordon: Thank you, Thomas! [The scene changes to the Steamworks where workman are working and Percy's being fixed] Narrator: At the Sodor Steamworks, sparks flew and cogs creaked. Percy was almost ready to leave. Percy and Thomas smiled. Then The Fat Controller arrived. He was cross. The Fat Controller: Thomas and Percy, the mail trucks are still missing. Tomorrow, you, along with Connor and the Irelanders must find them. Percy: Yes, sir. Thomas: Of course, sir.
Fireman Sam: Don't worry, Sir Topham. We'll work together.
The Fat Controller: I hope so. I don't any more confusion and delay with the mail. (he walks off)
Norman Price: Sheesh. What a grouch.
Connor Lacey: Norman!
Norman Price: What?
Marco Polo: You shouldn't say things like that around Sir Topham Hatt.
Norman Price: Well, he's grumpy and the engines call him Fat Controller because of his stout appearance.
Twilight Sparkle: So?
Shi La: There's no need to say such rude things.
Dilys Price: I quite agree, Norman.
Narrator: Victor could see that Thomas and Percy were worried. Victor: Percy, you're fixed. Come on, Thomas, cheer your friend up. Thomas: My friends and I know just how to do that. Follow us, Percy. Victor: Thomas, this afternoon, I will leave something for you. Thomas: Thank you, Victor. Percy: Thank you, Victor.
[The scene changes to the heroes, Olwin, Thomas and Percy going to Hiro's hideout]
Narrator: Thomas and Percy puff up to Hiro's hideout. Percy saw Hiro for the first time. He gasped.
Twilight Sparkle: See, Percy? This is the older engine we've told you about.
Thomas: Hiro, this is my best friend, Percy.
Percy: (a bit shy) Uh, hello.
Hiro: Hello, Percy. You have a very special best friend. I think that is because you are special too.
Percy: (blushes) Do you have best friends?
Hiro: Yes, I do. At home.
Thomas: Do you miss them?
Hiro: I do.
Shi La: Oh, Hiro.
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Fluttershy: That must be very sad.
Chief Fire Officer Boyce: I quite agree.
Hiro: Don't be sad. Look at my new funnel. Gordon brought it for me. (chuckles) When Gordon smiles, it changes his whole face. Heh. It is most interesting.
Olwin: That's wonderful.
Spud the Scarecrow: We don't see him smile very often.
Connor Lacey: Yeah.
Narrator: That made Thomas and Percy smile.
All: Good night, Hiro.
Hiro: Good night, my friends. Until tomorrow.
[The scene changes to the summer house as the sun starts to set]
Narrator: On their way home, Thomas and Percy chuff cheerily past the summer house. Their wheels whirred and their boilers bubbled. Neither of them saw Spencer. Spencer saw them. He was hiding in the shadows. Once they had past, he slid silently out of the siding.
Spencer: I'm going to find out what that tricky tank engine, my tenderless sister and those funny weird characters of theirs are doing. It's time for steely Spencer to hunt for clues. [The scene changes to the next morning] Narrator: In the morning, Thomas puff off with Percy to find his mail trucks. Connor and his friends were on board looking too. Thomas: Are you sure you can't remember where you left them, Percy? Percy: I can't. Goofy: Try to think about the last time you saw them. Percy: I am. But I can only think about Hiro.
[The scene changes to Emily and Spencer]
Narrator: Emily was busy, doing Thomas' jobs on his branch line. Spencer watch her. Emily didn't take any notice of him.
Spencer: Why is Thomas puffing round the summerhouse and why is Olwin acting so strange?
Emily: I don't know. Thomas is a busy engine. He chuffs all over the island.
Narrator: This made Spencer cross.
Spencer: Why are you working on Thomas' branch line?
Emily: Because as I said, Thomas is a busy engine.
Spencer: Where is he busy?
Emily: You're a big strong engine, Spencer. Why don't you go and look?
Narrator: Spencer really didn't like this. He stared hard at Emily. Spencer stared so hard, he didn't see Percy and Thomas puff by on the upper track, nor did he see Edward huff by with a flatbed of engine parts for Hiro.
[The scene changes to Thomas, Percy, Olwin and The Irelanders with Hiro]
Narrator: That evening, Thomas and Percy puff up to Hiro's hideout.
Hiro: Look at me now!
Narrator: Hiro's boiler was finished. He was a colorful patchwork of parts.
The Irelanders: Wow.
Shi La: Amazing.
Fu Fu: (chitters in agreement)
Narrator: Thomas and Percy were very happy.
Thomas: You look wonderful.
Hiro: Thank you. But I'm worried for you.
Olwin: About what, dear?
Hiro: The silver engine was sniffing around here last night. Staying away for a little while. Your friends are taking good care of me. Today, Edward was very wise and tomorrow, I think James is coming.
James Jones: But I'm already here.
Hiro: Oh, sorry. Wait, one of Thomas' friends has your name?
James Jones: Yes.
Hiro: I see. Sorry.
James Jones: It's okay.
Shi La: (giggles)
Fu Fu: (chitters with laughter)
Percy: James' engine counterpart isn't wise at all. He's a bossy boiler.
Narrator: And for the first time, Thomas, Olwin, The Irelanders and Percy heard Hiro laugh, loud, long and happy.
[The scene changes to the quarry next day]
Narrator: The next morning, Thomas, Percy, Olwin and the Irelanders search the quarry for the mail trucks.
Twilight Sparkle: Percy's mail trucks have to be on Sodor somewhere.
Rainbow Dash: Well, they're not here in the quarry.
Olwin: And a good thing too. I don't want to get my body dirty and this quarry is the last place I want to go to.
Connor Lacey: We still have a job to do.
Twilight Sparkle: We better find those mail trucks otherwise the people here won't have any mail or parcel this week.
Wheeljack (G1): But if we don't find them very soon, The Fat Controller will be cross.
Station Officer Steele: And we'II be in big trouble.
Tom Thomas: Whoa.
Elvis Cridlington: Well, don't you worry. We'II find those mail trucks. I'm sure of it.
Spike: But, Elvis, we don't even know where Percy had hidden them.
Elvis Cridlington: Oh. Right.
Sunstreaker (G1): So, what do we do?
Jimmy Z: (in Shaggy Rogers' voice) G-g-g-guys!
Thomas: What is it?
[They saw Spencer]
Olwin: Oh. It's Spencer. You guys ski-daddle whilst I distract him.
Rainbow Dash: How? We're caught red-handed.
[Mavis roll up towards Spencer]
Mavis: Spencer, what a honor. Let me take you around the quarry.
Thomas and Percy: (laughs)
Narrator: Thomas and Percy thought that was very funny.
Pinkie Pie: I guess that's one way to distract Spencer from watching us.
Mickey Mouse: Who's that black girl diesel?
Thomas: That's Mavis.
Percy: She's a friendly diesel who works here at the Ffarquhar quarry. We'II talk about her later.
Melody: Right now, Mavis' distracting Spencer. Come on, let's go.
[They head off]
Narrator: Spencer was annoyed by this. He scowled and he didn't see James puffing by with a flatbed of parts for Hiro. Mavis proudly took Spencer under the slate hopper. He chuff too quickly, then too slowly, then he roll back too far. Slate and dust flew down his funnel and bounce off his boiler.
[Spencer coughs and spits out slate]
[The scene changes to the coal hopper where Thomas, Percy and Olwin are taking on coal]
Narrator: Later, Thomas, Percy and Olwin were taking on coal. Emily chuff by. She have a flatbed of old parts for Hiro. Emily was very excited.
Thomas: Good luck, Emily.
Narrator: Then Thomas saw Spencer. Percy gasped.
Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
Tip: Look you guys.
Olwin: Oh. What now?!
Narrator: Spencer was being pull by Edward and shunted by Henry. Slate dust had blocked his funnel. Spencer had to go to the Sodor Steamworks.
[The scene changes to Hiro's hideout]
Narrator: Now Thomas, Connor and his friends could visit Hiro safely. They were excited. Hiro look more and more like a really useful engine.
Hiro: Connor, Shi La and Thomas, I must be really, really useful before the Fat Controller sees me.
Thomas: You will be, Hiro. Don't worry.
Shi La Won: Yes. It will all work out.
Hound (Autobot): Yeah.
Connor Lacey: We'II make sure you will be really useful enough to show the Fat Controller.
[The scene changes to the Steamworks]
Victor: Listen, Spencer. Looking miserable doesn't get the job done any faster. Tomorrow, you will be fixed. Come on, give a smile. Just to show me you can.
Narrator: Thomas, Percy and Olwin puffed in.
Twilight Sparkle: Looks like Victor left us some more spare parts for us to take to Hiro. The only problem is that Spencer is right next to the flatbed.
Rainbow Dash: Oh, great. How are we going to get that flatbed without Spencer seeing us?
Olwin: I know. I'll keep him talking and you can sneak past while he's not looking.
[Kevin stop and drop a part to the ground with a bang]
Victor: Oh, Kevin!
Narrator: Then Victor saw that Spencer had closed his eyes because of the noise. Victor winked at Thomas.
Victor: Uh, no problem, Kevin. Those hooks can be slippy. You're doing a good job, Kevin. Keep going.
[Kevin keep dropping things, making Spencer groaning]
Spencer: Oh. Oh. Stop that noise please! Oh! Ee!
Dash: Or maybe Kevin could do that.
Olwin: Okay, now's our chance.
Jack Skellington: Let's get that flatbed and get out of here before Spencer wakes up.
Narrator: And Thomas chuff carefully away from Spencer and off to Hiro with his new parts.
[The scene changes to Hiro's Hideout]
Fireman Sam: Hiro, I was just wondering. What is it you normally think when you're all alone in these woods?
Hiro: My home. Since I have been talking to all of you about it, I miss it, more than ever.
Connor Lacey: Poor Hiro. It must be very hard for him to be away from home for such a very long time.
Shi La: That's what I was thinking.
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Hiro: Hey, Shi La, don't be sad. As long as you and I are reunited, it takes my mind off it.
Shi La: Right.
Luigi: I know how that feels.
Luigi: Yeah. I was feeling homesick when we started the journey to China to find Marco's father. I missing the canals, my mom's cooking and Venice. In fact, I was so homesick, I couldn't eat.
Olwin: Oh, my.
Luigi: I tried to get back to Venice by ship but the invading army sunk it so I have to go back.
Luigi: Then I try using a passage to Venice when Fu Fu brought me back to rescue Marco, Shi La, Connor and his friends from the army and after we escape, I realize that I would miss Marco, Shi La, Connor and his friends even more since they're my home after all.
Fluttershy: That was very nice, Luigi.
Aviva Corcovado: (with tears in her eyes) That is so heart-warming.
Shi La: Hiro, I know you don't want me to be sad but I don't want you to be sad too. I miss home too until I return to it.
Hiro: It's okay, Shi La. We will soon be back to both our homes again.
Shi La: Well, I'II stick to traveling with my friends if you don't mind.
Hiro: Okay, Shi La.
Twilight Sparkle: Don't worry, guys. Percy is going to bring the final engine part Hiro will be needing tomorrow.
Thomas: You're right, Twilight. Did you hear that, Hiro? The final part will be here tomorrow. Then you'II be ready. You won't have to be alone any more.
Hiro: Thank you, Thomas. You, Shi La and your friends understand me well.
[The scene changes to Tidmouth Sheds]
Narrator: That night, The Fat Controller was waiting for Thomas, Connor and his friends at Tidmouth Sheds. He was cross.
The Fat Controller: Connor and Thomas, the mail trucks are still missing. Spencer's at the Sodor Steamworks, the building materials for the summerhouse are stacked up at the docks and you're not working on your branch line! What is going on?
Thomas: We're sorry, sir.
Connor Lacey: We didn't mean to cause a lot of trouble around. But tomorrow, we will make sure everything is put right.
The Fat Controller: Tomorrow then, you two. (he walks off)
Spud the Scarecrow: Oh. The Fat Controller is really cross with us now.
Olwin: He's even worse then Vee when she's angry.
Station Officer Steele: Even worse than Boyce.
Chief Fire Officer Boyce: (sternly) I heard that, old chap!
Yumi Ishiyama: Sheesh.
Station Officer Steele: For the last time, Boyce, I am not old!
Connor Lacey: (giggles)
Station Officer Steele: It's not funny.
Connor Lacey: Well, it was a little funny.
Fireman Sam: Enough jokes. We need to get that final part to Hiro and find those mail trucks.
Marco Polo: Sam's right. We can't tell The Fat Controller until Hiro has the part. If you think we should abandon our help to avoid causing trouble, Boyce, you're wrong. That engine is Shi La's friend and we will not stop until he's really useful again. If getting into trouble for the Fat Controller worth helping Hiro, so be it.
Shi La: (touched by Marco's speech) Marco that is the sweetest thing you have ever said.
Marco Polo: (surprised) It is? I didn't expect that to be and I never say anything sweet before. (clearing his throat, embarrassed)
Raven Queen: Well, that's a great speech, Marco.
Chris Kratt: (whispering to Yuya) Told ya.
Yuya Sasaki: Yeah.
Connor Lacey: Right.
Gordon: Don't worry, everyone.
Edward: Tomorrow, Percy will get the last part Hiro needs.
James: We'II take it turns to guard Hiro.
Henry: Tomorrow, it all be alright.
Emily: Don't worry.
[The Irelanders, Olwin and Thomas smiled]
Thomas: Oh. Thank you.
[The scene changes to dawn the next day]
Narrator: Dawn broke across the island of Sodor. Spencer was back on the tracks. Spencer: Today, I will find out what tricky Thomas, Olwin and those characters of theirs are up to. Narrator: Spencer was looking for clues. He look behind bushes. He steam down sidings and puff closer and closer to Hiro's hiding place. Suddenly... [Spencer whistles, alerting Hiro, James and Toby] Narrator: Spencer whistle long and hard. Spencer: What's this I found? Narrator: James and Toby heard Spencer. They pump their pistons. Spencer: Rattle my rods. I found Percy's mail trucks. These must be part of tricky Thomas, Olwin and those characters' tricks. Narrator: Suddenly, James and Toby steamed out. Spencer had puff too close to Hiro. James blew his whistle and Toby rang his bell. Together, they chase the mighty Spencer down the track and away from Hiro. The three engines raced and roared to a junction. Then Thomas chuff towards Spencer. Norman Price: Stop in the name of the Irelanders! [Spencer sees them and screeches to a halt] Narrator: Spencer was blocked. He couldn't puff forwards and he couldn't huff backwards. And he had Percy's mail trucks. [The scene changes to Knapford Station] The Fat Controller: Spencer, why did you take Percy's mail trucks? You have caused confusion and delay. Spencer: But I didn't take them.... The Fat Controller: I'm not interested in your excuses, Spencer. Find Percy and give him back his mail trucks at once. Spencer: I won't let Thomas, Olwin and their little friends get away with this.
[The scene changes to Thomas, Olwin and the Irelanders arriving at Hiro's Hideout]
Narrator: That afternoon, Hiro was waiting for Thomas. He was excited. His firebox flared and his steam swirled.
Thomas: Percy will be here soon with your water injector. It's the last part you need to make enough steam.
Hiro: I wonder if the Fat Controller will have seen any pictures of me?
Thomas: Of course, he will. He'II be very proud to have you as part of his railway.
Connor Lacey: Yeah, Hiro.
Shi La Won: Even more useful than before.
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Pinkie Pie: Are we going to celebrate out victory for fixing Hiro? (She jump as her party cannon burst out confetti)
Fireman Sam: Not yet, Pinkie!
[Pinkie and the cannon reverses]
Fireman Sam: Hiro still needs that water injector.
Chris Kratt: He's right. We just have to prove to The Fat Controller that Hiro is really useful enough to stay working first.
Olwin: Besides, we have to make sure we keep Hiro away from my brother until Percy has the last engine part we need.
Twilight Sparkle: Olwin's right. An engine can't be useful if it doesn't have all the right parts.
Martin Kratt: Don't worry, Pinkie. You'II soon fire your party cannon once we're done.
Pinkie Pie: Oh okay, Martin.
Aviva Corcovado: Well, I got something to make this more exciting.
Thomas: What's that, Aviva?
Aviva Corcovado: After a while, traveling with Marco and his friends to China, I've finally made Greater Asiatic yellow bat power discs! (She holds them out)
Shi La Won: Whoa. Now they'll be able to fly just like Fu Fu.
Chris Kratt: Well, we've have activated brown bat powers before but glad you, Marco and Luigi remember our creature powers.
Shi La Won: You're welcome.
Hiro: Creature powers?
Aviva Corcovado: Oh, whenever we discover a new animal, we use their special abilities to make discs such as these to give the Kratt bros their abilities so that they can use them to save creatures in need.
Martin Kratt: Like from villains. Watch and be amazed.
Chris Kratt: Shi La, mind if we touch Fu Fu?
Shi La Won: Not at all.
Fu Fu: [excited chitter]
Chris and Martin: (touch Fu Fu) Activate Greater Asiatic yellow bat powers!
[They transform into Greater Asiatic Yellow Bats]
Hiro: Wow. That is the most unexpected thing I have ever seen.
Hound (Autobot): Whoa!
Koki: Glad you like them.
Martin Kratt: Once again, we're the Bat Brothers!
[Chris Kratt swing his wing up, accidentally smack Marco in the cheek]
Marco Polo: Ow!
Chris Kratt: Ooops. Sorry. Didn't see you there.
The Irelanders: [laughing]
Marco Polo: Real funny. That's okay, Chris.
Connor Lacey: Heh.
Aviva Corcovado: I think you bros needs another trip through the Miniaturizer. Those wings are big anyway.
Chris and Martin: Miniaturize!
[They shrink to Fu Fu's size]
Hiro: I must say Aviva, your inventions are great.
Aviva Corcovado: Thanks.
Hiro: I'm so happy. I have waited a long time.
[Then Spencer's whistle echoed]
Narrator: Suddenly, there was the sound of a loud whistle.
[Spencer's whistle again]
Narrator: It was a whistle they all feared.
Luigi: Oh, no. Not now.
Olwin: Oh, no is right, Luigi. That sounds like...
[Spencer whistles again]
Thomas: (gasps) It's Spencer!
Hiro: He's found us!
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, no! If Spencer see Hiro here, he's going to tell the Fat Controller about him and have him scrapped at the Smelters' Yard for good. (gasps)
Chris Kratt: Oh, no. Not good.
Shi La Won: Oh, my!
Fu Fu: (Worried chitter)
James Jones: What do we do?
Thomas: We're just have to move Hiro to another hiding place. He's nearly fixed. We can puff away from Spencer.
Connor Lacey: But we can't get very far when Hiro's like this. Percy hasn't turned up with the water injector!
Fireman Sam: And without it, Hiro won't be able to work properly.
Penny Morris: So what now?
Thomas: We've no choice. We're have to move. We might see Percy on the way. Come on, Hiro. Follow me.
Lightning McQueen: Come on, guys!
Dusty Crophopper: Right behind you!
Shi La Won: Come on. Climb abroad Hiro and let's ski-daddle.
Narrator: So, with a pounding puff and a heaving huff, Hiro was on the tracks, following Thomas to steam away from Spencer. Hiro steam down the track, rattling and clattering. His pistons pumped and his boiler bubbled.
Thomas: Well done, Hiro!
Hiro: Thank you, Thomas! (laughs)
Ron Stoppable: Hiro is doing alright, everyone. And I think we're far away from Spencer by now. Oh-ya.
Narrator: Then there was trouble. Spencer snaked onto the tracks behind Thomas.
Spencer: Found you, Olwin and Thomas.
Thomas and Olwin: Spencer!
Narrator: Olwin and Thomas' wheels whirred like the wind.
Spencer: You both won't get away from me this time.
Narrator: Hiro chuff as fast as he could. He wanted to wheesh away from Spencer. Then Spencer saw Hiro and gasped. Spencer had never seen a engine as strange as Hiro before.
Spencer: Who are you?
Spencer: That engine can't even puff properly.
Narrator: Hiro's engine had started to clatter and clunked. His steam dome shook and his cylinders creaked. Hiro was worried. Without the last engine part, Hiro can only sputtered and sputtered. Hiro's new lamp broke loose and hit Spencer. Now Hiro's engine started to judder and jitter. Parts fell off. They clang and they bang onto the track.
Connor Lacey: Hiro is starting to fall apart!
Shi La Won: He'll be broken without the final part!
Fu Fu: (worried chitter)
Chief Fire Officer Boyce: (in Scrooge McDuck's voice) This cannot be happening!
Jimmy Z: Not here. Not now!
Thomas: Don't worry, Hiro! You can do it!
[A yellow screw came out of Hiro]
Hiro: Thomas, help me!
Narrator: But the harder Hiro huff, the worse he wobbled.
Thomas: Keep puffing, Hiro!
Narrator: More parts clattered and scatted from Hiro's engine.
Olwin: Twilight. Can't your magic do something to stop Hiro falling apart?
Twilight Sparkle: I would try but it wouldn't be powerful enough to hold Hiro in one piece.
Spike: Then that means, Shi La, Hiro is done for.
Shi La Won: Oh, no!
Fu Fu: (worried chitter)
Fluttershy: Ah. I can't look.
Thomas: You can do it, Hiro!
Spencer: I don't think he can.
Narrator: Hiro knew Spencer was right. The Master of the Railway was once more a heap of scrap. Hiro couldn't puff on.
Fireman Sam: Oh, dear. This doesn't look good.
Connor Lacey: Not good.
Shi La Won: Oh, no. Hiro.
Fu Fu: [worried chitter)
Spencer: Is this what you, Olwin and your little friends been doing, Thomas? Making a heap of scrap for the Smelter's Yard? Because that's the only thing that this engine's good for. The Fat Controller will make sure of that. And you are silly to think that a silly teenager like you can lead a team, Connor.
Connor Lacey: Why you... [growls]
Olwin: That's not fair, Spencer! You won't get away with this, you scoundrel!
Spencer: Oh, yeah? Looks like I've won and you lose and don't need a driver to help you move.
[Scowling, Olwin biffs Spencer]
Spencer: Ow! (snarls)
Olwin: That ought to teach you a lesson!
Narrator: Thomas felt terrible. He had worked so hard but he had let Hiro down.
Thomas: How can I stop Hiro going to the Smelter's Yard now?
[Then Gordon's whistle is heard]
Narrator: Then Thomas heard another whistle. It was Gordon and the express.
Gordon: I'II race you to Mathwhite, slowcoach Spencer. I'II win.
Narrator: Spencer was surprised. He saw Gordon thundered ahead with the express.
Spencer: Oh, no you won't, Gordon. I'II win.
Narrator: Spencer steamed after Gordon. His funnel flared and his wheels whirred.
Aviva Corcovado: What do we do? He's found out about Hiro.
Applejack: And to make matters worse, Hiro have lost all his parts we've given him. Oh, he'II be scrapped for sure now.
Pinkie Pie: No, he won't. Because there's an old siding right there.
Thomas: And it's hidden behind some big bushes.
Mike Flood: That's it. We'II hide Hiro behind those bushes.
Connor Lacey: Good thinking, Pinkie.
Fireman Sam: That way, Spencer won't find him again.
Chris Kratt: Pinkie, for a pony that does parties and being silly, you're sure are a genius.
Pinkie Pie: Yeah. I get that a lot. Mostly from Twilight.
Thomas: Don't worry, Hiro. We'II hide you down here. Everything will be alright.
Narrator: But poor Hiro look sadder than ever.
[The scene changes to Gordon racing Spencer]
Narrator: Gordon race toward Maithwaite ahead of Spencer. Spencer was out of puff. Percy's mail trucks rattled and praddled behind him.
Gordon: I won! I told you I would.
Narrator: Before Spencer could ease his axles, the door of the Express swung open. The Duke and Duchess of Boxford stepped out. They were cross.
Spencer: Fumbling fenders.
Duke: Spencer, you have left us down. We've left you in charge of our summer house and it's not ready for our holiday. Our friend, The Fat Controller says you've spend all day watching Thomas, along with your sister, Olwin, Connor Lacey and his friends.
The Fat Controller: And taking mail trucks that aren't yours. You told me you were taking them to Percy and you haven't.
Narrator: Spencer's pride was in pieces.
Spencer: They have a very old engine. Uh, heap of scrap in fact. I was chasing it because i-i-in fact, Fat Controller, you should.... Duke: Please Spencer, stop. Chasing engines that are a heap of scrap? We'II have to send you back to the mainland. It's quite clear, you're not fit to work. Thomas: Please, may I help? I could work with Spencer at the summer house. Olwin, Connor and his friends can help out as well. I'm sure together we could have it ready in time. Narrator: The Duke and Duchess were delighted. Duke: Thank you, Thomas. That is most kind of you. Please keep an eye on Spencer. He's clearly not feeling well. Narrator: Spencer wheesh steam. It was all too terrible.
[The scene changes to evening as Thomas and the Irelanders went to see Hiro in the siding]
Narrator: It was getting late as Thomas chuff to see Hiro. Hiro was very sad.
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, Hiro. We didn't mean to let your parts fall off you. We should have waited for Percy to bring the water injector to you.
Connor Lacey: Now you can't be really useful.
Aya: The odds of this mission's success are slim.
Hiro; No, it's not anyone's fault, Connor. You did everything you could to help me. But I know now I will be sent to the Smelters' Yard.
Thomas: No! No you won't! We won't let that happen to you. I promise. Don't give up.
Shi La Won: I can't let you be scrapped, Hiro. I have known you for a long time. And I don't want anything bad to happen to you. I'm not ready to say goodbye. Not yet.
Fu Fu: (chitters in agreement)
Hiro: Shi La, listen to me. I rather be scrapped now than being on a siding without you.
[The song If I Never Knew You start playing]
Hiro: (singing) If I never knew you If I never felt this love I would have no inkling of How precious life can be If I never held you I would never have a clue How at last I'd find in you The missing part of me In this world so full of fear Full of rage and lies I can see the truth so clear In your eyes So dry your eyes And I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Lost forever If I never knew you
Shi La Won: (singing) I thought our love would be so beautiful Somehow we'd make the whole world bright I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong All they'd leave us were these whispers in the night But still my heart is saying we were right For if I never knew you
Hiro: There's no moment I regret
Shi La Won: If I never knew this love
Hiro: Since the moment that we met
Shi La Won: I would have no inkling of
Hiro: If our time has gone too fast
Shi La Won: How precious life can be...
Hiro: I've lived at last...
Aviva Corcovado: Shi La. We have to leave. It's getting late.
Shi La Won: I can't leave him now. The song's not finished.
Hiro: You never will, Shi La. No matter what happens to me, I'II always be with you forever.
[Shi La sadly climbs on Thomas]
Narrator: And Thomas steam sadly away to Tidmouth.
[Hiro resumes singing as he look down sadly]
Hiro: And I'm so grateful to you I'd have lived my whole life through Empty as the sky
Shi La Won: Never knowing why
Hiro and Shi La Won: Lost forever If I never knew you
Thomas: We'll be back tomorrow, Hiro.
[The scene changes to Tidmouth Sheds at night]
Narrator: All the engines were worried about Hiro and cross with Spencer.
Rainbow Dash: I can't believe it. All our hard work to repair Hiro and a big silver relative of Olwin has to come and ruined everything.
Olwin: Too true. I wish I could teach him a lesson he will never forget.
Fluttershy: Oh. I can't believe it. I'm so frustrated that I could just scream. (inhales and screams very quietly)
Jimmy Z: Feeling better after that, Fluttershy?
Fluttershy: (sighs) No.
Menasor (PWT): Me neither.
Robonyan F: Well, now that Spencer has found out about Hiro, he's gonna tell The Fat Controller about him and have Hiro sent to the Smelters' Yard.
Pinkie Pie: We're never gonna see Hiro again!
Applejack: Uh, what are we gonna do, y'all?
Rarity: Of all the worst things that could happen, this is THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING! What? I'm just distressful that's all.
James Jones: There, there, Rarity.
Percy: I'm sorry I left my mail trucks so close to Hiro. I didn't know he was there. It look like a very good hiding place.
Thomas: Don't worry, Percy. We all did our best.
Henry: What shall we do now?
Thomas: I'm going to tell the Fat Controller.
Emily: Why? Thomas: We tried to fix Hiro by ourselves. It didn't work. We need his help. First of all, me and my friends will finish the summer house with Spencer. Then The Fat Controller will know that we've been really useful. And he'II want to help us.
Connor Lacey: You're certain this is going to work, Thomas?
Thomas: I'm sure, Connor.
Fireman Sam: It's for Hiro's good.
Twilight Sparkle: We have to do this for our friend. Even if it means working with Spencer at the summer house.
Olwin: Well, for once, I have to agree.
Ron Stoppable: Why don't we get the spare parts from the Steamworks again instead?
Kim Possible: That won't work, Ron.
Maru: Kim's right. Do you want Hiro to be Master of the Railway or not?
Ron Stoppable: Yes. I do, Narrator: The other engines were quiet. They knew Thomas was right but they were worried for Hiro. He was their friend. They wanted to look after him. Thomas: While I'm busy, will you all go and visit Hiro? Edward: Of course we will, Thomas. [The engines whistled] Narrator: All the engines whistled. They were a team for Hiro.
[After Thomas and his friends fell asleep, the Irelanders stay awake]
James Jones: Twilight. Do you think The Fat Controller will fix Hiro after we tell him?
Twilight Sparkle: I don't know, James. But it's the only chance we got.
Koki: But what if he refuses to fix Hiro? He is the man in charge of this railway.
Marco Polo: I've got a bad feeling you're right, Koki. But I'm sure he will help us restore Hiro if he agrees. What do you think, Shi La? (saw that Shi La's not there) Shi La?
Kai (Ninjago): Where's Connor?
[They then saw her outside sobbing]
Shi La Won: (sobbing)
Bronwyn Jones: What's gotten into her?
Connor Lacey: (sits down beside Shi La) There, there, Shi La. It'll be fine. Hiro is going to be okay. I hope.
Alexis Rhodes: I wonder what's going on with Connor and Shi La?
Spike: I have no idea. But I think we should ask them and find out what.
Fluttershy: What if they're sad? Or upset? Or scared?
Devastator (PWT): I doubt it, Fluttershy. Maybe four of us should go to them and find out what's wrong.
Rarity: I agree, Devastator. Twilight darling, you know Connor more than we do, Aviva and Koki, you two have started to grow on Shi La and Marco, you know Shi La, see if you four can have a word with them.
Twilight Sparkle: We'll try.
Marco Polo: (in Woody's voice, sighs) Alright but I don't know how good it would do.
Shi La Won: Hiro is sure to be scrapped now. What will I do?
Connor Lacey: I'm sure, we'll think of something.
Twilight Sparkle: Hey, Connor.
Marco Polo: Shi La, are you okay?
Shi La Won: I'm afraid not, Marco. I just can't bare the thought of losing a friend who I've known since I began my adventures with you. But now... (starts to tear up) I'm never going to see Hiro again! (sobbing)
Aviva Corcovado: Oh, sssh, there, there.
Connor Lacey: I know what you mean, Shi La. Me and my friends have all been there.
Marco Polo: Really?
Apple White: Yeah. We've all had close calls before.
Kim Possible: Like when Simba's father, Mufasa, was killed in a wildebeest stampede because of his evil brother, Scar and his hyenas, Shenzi, Banzai and Ed.
Razer: And I lost my first love, Illana, when she was murdered by Atrocitus.
Lightning McQueen: My friend and mentor, Doc Hudson also known as the Fabulous Hudson Hornet died of unknown causes.
Skipper Riley: My squadron in the Jolly Wrenches was killed by a ambush. After that, I just couldn't bring himself to fly again until Dusty help me.
Chris Kratt: Kerchak, leader of the gorillas and Tarzan's adoptive father was killed when a hunter named Clayton shot him.
Lloyd Garmadon: Mr. E sacrificed himself to save us from my father.
Twilight Sparkle: Burnett Stone's wife Tasha died sometime ago so she didn't get the chance to ride on Lady the lost engine like Burnett promised.
Connor Lacey: But worst of all, I lost my father and my siblings when my stepmom, murderer and traitor Linda Ryan aka the Shredderette killed them.
Raven Queen: We all must say goodbye to those we care about when they know that their end has come.
Applejack: Oh, Connor, didn't your father die?
Connor Lacey: Yes.
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, you poor thing.
Marco Polo: I know how that feels.
Martin Kratt: Really?
Marco Polo: Yes, Martin. Shi La, it's time you know something.
Shi La Won: What's that?
Marco Polo: Before I met you, Fu Fu, Connor and his friends and while my father's away in China, my mother died.
Irelanders and Shi La: (gasps)
Connor Lacey: Oh, no.
Shi La Won: Oh, my.
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Luigi: Marco told me about me about it and my mother and my sisters know it too.
Jimmy Z: Man.
Fireman Sam: That's terrible.
Shi La Won: Oh, Marco, that's just dreadful.
Marco Polo: I know. Thankfully, my father's still alive. Otherwise, I'II be a orphan like you.
Twilight Sparkle: (to Connor) Connor. I understand you miss them. It must be very hard for you to stop thinking about them and let go. But just think Connor. If you haven't made lots of adventures in the first place, you would never look after your friends after Simba's father, Mufasa and Doc Hudson's death.
Applejack: She's right, Connor. I also lost my parents when I was a young filly and Granny Smith looks after me, Apple Bloom and Big McIntosh for many years. But when my big brother and I grew up, we now kept an eye on my little sister and Granny Smith just to make sure nothing bad happens to them.
Twilight Sparkle: Thomas! What are you doing here?
Thomas: Heard you guys talking.
Madeline Hatter: Really?
Koki: Shouldn't you be sleeping?
Thomas: I was. But Shi La's sobbing and your talking woke me up.
Connor Lacey: Are your friends still asleep?
Twilight Sparkle: Then we're sorry we woke you.
Thomas: That's okay.
[Norman Price walks up with a apologetic look on his face]
Thomas: What's wrong, Norman?
Norman Price: I want to say something to Shi La. Something I should have said earlier.
Shi La: What's that, Norman?
Norman Price: I'm sorry for insulting Fu Fu like that. I didn't really mean those things when he almost blow our cover. Although after we tell the Fat Controller about Hiro, I don't suppose you want to be my friend any more. (He hung his head in shame and regret)
Dilys Price: Oh, my little treasure.
Shi La Won: Norman, I forgive you.
Norman Price: Really? I don't deserve it.
Shi La Won: Of course you do. I mean, under all your naughtiness, you're the bestest friend a girl could ask for.
Norman Price: You really think I deserve your forgiveness?
Shi La Won: Of course, I would never not want to be your friend, Norman. Neither would anyone else.
Norman Price: Thanks, Shi La. (he hugs her)
Fireman Sam: That was a good apology, Norman.
Spud the Scarecrow: Yeah.
Shi La: (liking the hug) And this is a pretty good hug. (hugs him back)
Derek Price: Aw.
Norman Price: No hard feelings, Fu Fu?
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Connor Lacey: So, that's good.
Twilight Sparkle: You see, you two? You still look after lots of your other friends no matter if anything happens to them. I would never have looked after my friends when I first met them after I invited you and your friends back to Equestria. Just believe in yourself that you two and Thomas will help Hiro no matter what will happen.
Rainbow Dash: And we're your friends. We will help you no matter pickle you and your friends in for your upcoming adventures. You are an amazing teenage human.
Connor Lacey: Thanks, Rainbow. I'm very grateful to have you ponies and Spike as my new friends and members. And you are right, Twilight. I will believe that we can try again and get fix Hiro and make him the Master of the Railway once more like he used to be.
Shi La Won: He's right. We've gotta stay strong.
Pinkie Pie: [blows her nose] [sobs]
Koki: Take it easy, Pinkie Pie. You don't want to flood the whole island.
Pinkie Pie: Oh, sorry, Koki. But all this is so touching.
Marco Polo: I guess you've cheered up and regain hope now.
Shi La Won: Of course.
Fu Fu: [chitter]
Aviva Corcovado: We can do this.
Fireman Sam: We better get some sleep now. We've got work to do tomorrow.
Rainbow Dash: [yawns] I gotta admit I'm pretty beat.
Applejack: Yeah, I'm gonna hit the hay myself.
Chris Kratt: Sweet dreams, bro.
Martin Kratt: Night, bro.
Twilight Sparkle: Goodnight, Spike. [giggle] Sweet dreams, number one assistant.
Connor Lacey: Night.
[They and Thomas went to sleep, unaware that two alicorn princesses are watching them]
Narrator: For the next few days, Thomas, Olwin, The Irelanders and Spencer work on the summer house busily. Thomas and Olwin didn't let Spencer out of their sight.
Fireman Sam: (wearing a hard hat) Always wear a hard hat on sight.
Marco Polo: Why's that?
Connor Lacey: So you don't hurt your head.
Spud the Scarecrow: Bob and Wendy wear hard hats when they and the machines build things.
Fireman Sam: Exactly, Spud. And I'm sorry for saying this, Shi La but pets aren't allowed on construction sites. It's dangerous so you need to put Fu Fu somewhere safe for now.
Shi La Won: Okay, Sam.
[Fu Fu flew over to a tree and sleeps hanging upside on a branch]
Chris Kratt: Bats can hang upside down when they land and can even sleep that way.
Martin Kratt: Some bats are active during the day like albino bat and Greater Asiatic yellow bat.
Marco Polo: Wow. We're doing pretty good. And you guys really are creature experts.
Luigi: (tried to hammer some wood but hit his thumb instead) Ow!
Connor Lacey: That's gotta hurt.
Rainbow Dash: I hope the other engines are looking after Hiro very well.
[The work progresses]
Narrator: Thomas' friends all look after Hiro. He was never alone for long. He laughed and tell stories about his homeland to Emily, Gordon and Percy. He listen to Edward's wise words and cared that Henry had to have special coal. He admire James' shiny red coat and thought Toby was very special. The only steam tram he had ever met.
[The scene changes back to the summerhouse]
Narrator: The Duke and Duchess came to visit the summer house. It was almost complete. They were very pleased. Spencer beamed. He told them all about it while Thomas puff quietly away to see Hiro. Hiro was happy to see Thomas.
Hiro: Hello Thomas, my best friend.
Thomas: Hello, Hiro.
Narrator: Thomas could see Hiro was sad.
Thomas: Hiro, I won't let you be scrapped. Believe me. Tonight, me, Connor and his friends will fix everything.
Narrator: Thomas chuff back to the summer house, just in time to goodbye to The Duke and Duchess.
Duke: Thank you, Thomas. Without you or Connor and his friends, Spencer would never have finished on time.
Thomas: Me and my friends have to go to Knapford now.
Thomas: To see the Fat Controller.
Kim Possible: See you later, alligator.
Narrator: Spencer snarled.
Spencer: You're gonna tell The Fat Controller about that silly scrap engine. I'II get there first to make sure your plan doesn't work. That engine will be sent to the Smelters' Yard where he belongs.
Narrator: So Spencer pumped his pistons and clickety-clack after Thomas. Thomas heard Spencer's wheels whooshing and whirring behind him.
Twilight Sparkle: Ah! Spencer is hot on our tail!
Elvis Cridlington: If he gets past us, he's gonna make The Fat Controller scrap Hiro.
Spike: Then we gotta get to Knapford first before he does.
Shi La Won: (determined) We won't let you scrap my friend, Spencer!
Olwin: You go! I'll distract him!
[Olwin stops and reverses]
Connor Lacey: Don't!
Olwin: This has been going on for far too long, Spencer! It's time for you to pay!
Spencer: You just don't give up, do you?
[The two start fighting]
[Then Spencer push Olwin into a siding and she biff the buffers and came off the tracks]
[He continues after the heroes]
Sarah Jones: Spencer's still behind us!
Thomas: And Olwin's been hurt!
James Jones: I'm going to regret this but we better get to Knapford and fast.
Connor Lacey: So now you overcome your fear of speed?
James Jones: Not really. I'II make a exception just this once. That's why I going to regret this.
Connor Lacey: Right! Full throttle, Thomas!
Thomas: I'II puff hardest. I'II chuff quickest. I know I can. Hold on, everyone. It's going to be a bumpy ride!
Narrator: Thomas and Spencer had the race of their lives. Thomas steamed over bridges and wheeshed through tunnels. He slipped through junctions and race round bends. Spencer thundered and roared, but he couldn't get in front of Thomas.
[Norman Price in determination, grab a piece of coal from Thomas' coal bunker, much to everyone and Shi La's surprise]
Norman Price: Take this, you silver jerk! (he throw it at Spencer, hitting him on the head)
Spencer: Oh! (snarls)
Norman Price: Well, that didn't work.
Menasor (PWT): Try something else!
Spud the Scarecrow: I know. (makes paper planes) Take this, Spencer!
[He makes airplane noises and throw it at Spencer and he gets hit several times]
Spencer: Ow! Ooh!
Marco Polo: Yeah, that'll teach him!
Narrator: At a junction, Thomas puffed ahead. Then he turn quickly onto a side track. Spencer thundered on then screech to a stop. Spencer reveres back to the junction. He raced after Thomas along the narrow track. The rickety old track went over marshland. Thomas knew that it was the fastest way to Knapford. Thomas huff and Spencer puff. Spencer was closer and closer. Then there was trouble. The track was broken and Spencer was too heavy. With a creak and a crack, the track snapped beneath him. The mighty Spencer slid into the muddy marsh. Thomas stopped. He knew what had happened but he can do nothing.
Pinkie Pie: Oh, lookie there. Spencer's stuck in the mud.
Connor Lacey: That'll teach you to mess with the little guys!
Norman Price: Not so special now, are you?
Spud the Scarecrow: That will hold you.
Fluttershy: Oh my goodness.
Rainbow Dash: (laughs with Spike, Norman and Spud)
Twilight Sparkle: Fellas, this is no laughing matter.
Fireman Sam: Twilight's right. Spencer's stuck in the mud and there's no need to laugh at a situation like this.
Rainbow Dash: So what? He was going to tell The Fat Controller about Hiro and have him sent to the Smelters' Yard.
Shi La: Besides, it will serve him right for being rude to us and the engines and ruined our hard work on repairing Hiro.
Koki: And he hurt his sister so he deserve it. Do you agree, Connor?
Connor Lacey: Uh, I don't know, guys. What if Sam is right? Spencer may underestimate us but he still needs help.
Applejack: I know Spencer have been very troublesome. But we can't leave him here forever. Who else is gonna finish working on the summer house for The Duke and Duchess's holiday?
Chris Kratt: And not only that, Olwin cannot replace Spencer as a private engine. She has her own jobs back in Chuggington. What would she say if she knows that we leave her only brother here forever?
Cruz: She'd probably scold us for it.
Li' Dipper: Even after Spencer's mean to her?
Cruz: Yes, Dipper.
Mickey Mouse: Applejack and Chris has a point. What do you think, Connor?
Connor Lacey: We have to help him.
Norman Price: But.. (stutters) He'II ruin our plans!
Connor Lacey: Norman, the Irelanders help anyone. Even if that someone is our enemy.
Fireman Sam: Connor's right. We firefighters help someone when they're stuck even if they do bad things.
Rainbow Dash: Oh, alright.
Shi La: (sighs) Fine. But he's staying there for now until we help Hiro. I won't let him ruin our plans any longer. (give everyone a stern look)
Thomas: I'm sorry, Spencer. I didn't know that the track was broken. We're go on and get help. We'll be back.
Narrator: And Thomas steamed on.
[The scene changes to Knapford Station as Thomas arrives]
Narrator: Thomas chuff into Knapford. He was tired and dirty. The Fat Controller was having dinner with The Duke and Duchess. The stationmaster telephone him and ask The Fat Controller to come to Knapford right away.
[They arrive minutes later]
Narrator: Thomas' traction rods were trembling. His wheels wobbled. He knew he, Connor and his friends now had to tell The Fat Controller everything about Hiro. The Fat Controller listened.
Thomas: Hiro is a old and important engine. We didn't want him scrapped. That's we tried to fix him ourselves.
Elvis Cridlington: We're telling the truth, Sir Topham. We were trying to to make Hiro really useful once more.
Rainbow Dash: He was left in the forest for a very long time after he broke down.
Shi La Won: So, please, don't scrap him, sir. He's my friend. And now, I fear I may never see him again.
Narrator: The Fat Controller stared at everyone. Thomas was worried. He was now sure The Fat Controller would scrap Hiro.
The Fat Controller: Did you all say Hiro?
Connor Lacey: Yes we did, sir.
The Fat Controller: You mean The Master of the Railway?
Thomas: Yes, sir.
Duchess: Oh. He's terribly famous.
The Fat Controller: Famous? He's the Master of the Railway. Why did you all think I would scrap the Master of the Railway, Thomas? Why did none of you ask me?
James Jones: Because we were very silly and worried to ask for your help.
Twilight Sparkle: And even if we did, you might refuse to help us and sent Hiro to the Smelters' Yard instead.
Shi La: I might never see him again if you do that.
Fu Fu: (chitter)
Thomas: So we tried to fix him alone.
The Fat Controller: You're not alone anymore. we must help Hiro at once. Sent him to the Sodor Steamworks. Victor will have his funnel bright and pistons pumping in no time.
Connor Lacey: You mean, you're gonna have him fixed, not scrapped?
The Fat Controller: Of course, Connor. He won't be a scrap engine any more. I understand that he's your friend, Shi La. He'II become the Master of the Railway once again.
Shi La: (relieved and hugging him) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
The Mask: (in the Grinch's voice) Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee did iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!
Norman Price: Is she allowed to do that?
Aviva Corcovado: I don't know.
Marco Polo: Whoo-hoo!
Bob Parr/Mr Incredible: Yeah, baby!
Narrator: Thomas was so happy he wanted to whistle and wheesh.
Thomas: Thank you, sir. Thank you.
Violet Parr: Wait a minute, guys! We forgot about Olwin!
Lagoona Blue: Crickey. You're right.
Helen Parr/Elastigirl: Olwin got hurt fighting Spencer. She needs fixing also.
Lucius Best/Frozone: Well, first we gotta tell the MOTR the big news. And help Spencer later on.
Dash Parr: He got stuck in the marsh at the Fenland Track.
Connor Lacey: And I don't think the Duke's too happy about it either.
Duke: Indeed I'm not, Connor. I told Spencer not to leave the summer house and he did. We're both shocked that he hurt his sister like that. So, Spencer must wait his turn for help after Olwin and Hiro.
[The scene changes to Hiro in his siding when Thomas and the Irelanders arrive]
Thomas: Hiro! We've seen The Fat Controller. He knows you're the Master of the Railway. You're gonna be sent to the Sodor Steamworks, not the Smelter's Yard.
Shi La: And we'll be together and relive those childhood memories.
Fu Fu: (excited chitter)
Hiro: Hooray for Thomas, Shi La, Connor and his friends!
Thomas: Hooray for Hiro!
[The scene changes to Thomas and Percy taking Hiro to the Steamworks with Bob Parr pushing Olwin with his super strength behind them]
Narrator: The next day, Thomas and Percy heaved and hauled Hiro to the Sodor Steamworks. The Fat Controller was waiting.
The Fat Controller: Welcome, Hiro. It's a pleasure to meet you after so long.
Hiro: Thank you, sir. I thank you very much. And I thank you for Shi La, Connor, his friends and Thomas.
The Fat Controller: Thomas, Connor and his friends did their best. Victor will make sure that you'II soon be Master of the Railway once more. And you'II be fixed in no time, Olwin.
Olwin: Thank you, sir.
Victor: Of course, sir. Anything for you. I will do my very, very best. We all will.
[A bang happened]
Kevin: Sorry, boss.
Victor: (sighs) I'm sorry, sir. Very slippy hook.
The Fat Controller: So I see.
[Victor glares at Kevin then blushes as he smile nervously at the Fat Controller]
Drip: This is just wild, yo! We're talkin' big full time fangirling!
Thomas: Don't worry, Hiro. Victor is the best.
Connor Lacey: He will get you back to your former glory.
Shi La: I am so lucky.
Fu Fu: (chitter)
[The restoration begins and during that, Kevin fall over, making Victor roll his eyes in frustration]
[The scene changes to a few days later when the restoration is finished]
Narrator: A few days later, all the engines went to see Hiro.
Holly O'Hair: You ready, guys?
Luigi: Um, I think so.
Lightning McQueen: Oh-ho, this is gonna be epic!
Dusty Crophopper: Can't wait to see what he looks like now.
Connor Lacey: Hopefully Olwin's better.
Yumi Ishiyama: We'll see.
[Then Olwin rolls out, good as new]
Thomas: Olwin! You're okay!
Olwin: Of course, I am, dear. I always get fixed when I got problems. Even though they don't have a chug scan to help but it work wonders.
Gordon: I'm just glad that you fixed, cuz.
Olwin: Thanks, Gordon.
Ace Bunny: And now, for Spencer.
Danger Duck: But first, we need to see Hiro.
Kim Possible: Here he comes.
[then Hiro moves]
Narrator: He puff forward slowly.
[Gordon, Henry, Edward and Toby gasps]
Narrator: The engines gasped.
Narrator; Hiro look wonderful, as good as new.
Connor Lacey: Whoa.
Irelanders: Ooh. Ahh.
Shi La Won: Hiro. You look amazing!
Fu Fu: (chitter)
Thomas: How do you feel, Hiro?
Hiro: Very happy, Thomas. i never thought this day would come.
The Fat Controller: Job done, Victor. Welcome back, Master of the Railway.
Hiro: Thank you, sir.
Fireman Sam: Well, Hiro looks much better than a patchwork version we made him into.
Spike: You got that right, Sam.
Applejack: [sighs] Y'know, this all could've been avoided if we all came to see The Fat Controller from the very beginning.
James Jones: Right. And even though you can't fix things by yourself, it's always important to ask help.
Princess Celestia: Sounds to me like a important lesson was learned today.
All: Princess Celestia?
Connor Lacey: Hello, Princess Celestia.
Princess Luna: Hello, everyone. Long time no see.
Aviva Corcovado: Princess Luna.
[Then Mai Lacey and Niccolo Polo walk up]
Connor Lacey: Mammy.
Marco Polo: Father.
Niccolo Polo: Marco.
Mai Lacey: Connor.
Applejack: What are you all doing here?
Princess Celestia: When we heard that you all were helping Thomas saving an old engine called Hiro, Mai, Niccolo, my sister and I came here to watch you all working together to restore him.
Princess Luna: And we're very impressed that Connor and Shi La haven't lost hope when Hiro started to lose some of his parts during his escape from Olwin's brother, Spencer.
Mai Lacey: I was doing a little shopping at Sodor's towns but I'm also impressed as well.
Connor Lacey: Thanks. But it was really Twilight and her friends who helped us never to lose hope.
Shi La: And they never gave up. No matter what.
Fu Fu: (chitter)
Princess Celestia: I already know. But you and your friends did very well to try and fix Hiro by yourselves.
Twilight Sparkle: It's important to remember that asking for help is always more important than just do it all by yourself.
Princess Celestia: Exactly, Twilight.
Fireman Sam: Well, it's a pleasure to meet you at last, Mai. (shake hands with her) I'm Fireman Sam of the Pontypandy Fire Service.
Mai Lacey: I'm honored to meet you, Sam.
Princess Celestia; Well now there's no need to watch you all over, I think Luna and I will head back home to Equestria. So, I'II see you, Twilight and your friends back in Ponyville. When and only when you come back.
Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity: [cheering]
Twilight Sparkle: Princess Celestia, wait! How did you know what was happening here?
Princess Celestia: Your friend Spike told us everything. He said you all might need some help in case something goes wrong here on Sodor. But I think you all got everything under control. Now, if you will all excuse us, we must return to Canterlot. Tell me all about your adventures here when you return.
Princess Luna: And have some loving dreams. You all deserve a goodnight's rest.
Sarah Jones: Don't worry. We will, Princess Luna.
Helen Parr/Elastigirl: Goodbye.
[Princess Celestia and Luna flew off and disappeared with magic]
Connor Lacey: Thanks, Spike. That was most helpful of you.
Spike: It was nothing, Connor.
Marco Polo: Right. Now that's sorted, I have something to confess to you, Shi La.
Shi La Won: What is it, Marco?
Marco Polo: Well, since we've started the journey to China to find my father, we've been getting along fine despite a bad start. But as the journey goes and during our time on Sodor, I got feelings inside of me. My adventures won't be the same without you so what I'm trying to say is.... I love you, Shi La.
Shi La Won: (amazed) Oh. I have something to confess too.
Marco Polo: What is it?
Shi La Won: When we first met, we got off to a bad start but we got along in the end. When we're with the knights of the Green Clover, I think Robin is so cool but after he left for England and as the journey continues, I got over him because I realize that the boy for me is in front of me all along. So in other words, I love you too, Marco.
Marco Polo: Whoa. Really?
Shi La Won: Yes. I've been trying to tell you in all the excitement.
Marco Polo: I see. I've planned to do this after Hiro got restored.
Shi La Won: Well, you timed it exactly right.
Marco Polo: Yep. So, you think I'm the one, even though my ideas often failed?
Shi La Won: Yes. (hugs Marco)
[They lean towards each other and kiss]
Fu Fu: (Trills in awe)
Hiro: (sighs) Young love.
Niccolò Polo: I had a feeling that their love will help Marco and Shi La throughout their next adventures.
Connor Lacey: Totally.
Spud the Scarecrow: That's so romantic.
Norman Price: (in Timon's voice) Oh, I promise myself I wasn't gonna cries. (sobs)
Sky Lynx (G1): Oh, sssh, there, there.
Dilys Price: Oh, my little Norman.
Shi La: (turning to Aviva and Koki with a smile on her face) I want to say thank you to both of you.
Aviva Corcovado: Thank us?
Koki: For what?
Shi La Won: For being good friends. The thing is you two are like big sisters to me. Which I never had.
Aviva Corcovado: (with tears in her eyes, touched) That is so kind of you to say that, sweetie.
Koki: Yeah. We sure are thankful for that.
Pinkie Pie: Aw.
[The three girls hugged each other]
Fu Fu: (chitters)
Martin Kratt: I've got a feeling that this is going to be a purrfect friendship.
Chris Kratt: Nice cat pun, Bro.
Hiro: That's nice.
Dash Parr: And to think you want Marco to marry one of your sisters so that he can be your brother-in-law.
Luigi: Yeah. I suppose Marco can make his decisions about his plans and falling in love with someone.
Connor Lacey: (agreeing with Luigi while watching Shi La, Aviva and Koki) Yep. He sure can.
The Fat Controller: Now, Thomas. Go and get that Spencer out of the mud.
[The scene changes to Spencer feeling very sad and regretful while still being stuck in the mud]
Thomas: Here I am, Spencer. I've come to help you.
Spencer: You can't help me, Thomas. You're not strong enough.
Thomas: You're right, Spencer. But I have just the engine who can help.
[Hiro puffs up with Shi La and Fu Fu on board]
Spencer: Who are you?
Hiro: I am Hiro.
Spencer: Are you the scrap engine?
Hiro: I was the scrap engine.
Shi La Won: And we had him restored. Our plan worked. So ha!
Fu Fu: (chitters)
Yumi Ishiyama: Your mean plans for having Hiro scrapped have been foiled, Spencer!
Lucius Best/Frozone: Not such a tough guy now, huh?
Norman Price: He's also Shi La's old friend.
Olwin: Ahem. (look sternly)
Shi La, Fu Fu, Yumi Ishiyama and Lucius Best/Frozone: (whilst Fu Fu chitters) Sorry, Olwin.
Connor Lacey: It's not nice to tease someone, guys.
Hiro: I agree, Connor. And Shi La, teasing someone for their accidents is never the right way. I know Spencer's trying to scrap me but there's no reason to do that.
Shi La Won: Okay. (to Spencer) Sorry.
Spencer: Blistering boilers!
Hiro: Spencer, it's time to get you out of the mud.
Twilight Sparkle: Rocky, do your thing, big fella.
Rocky: You got it, Twi. Hello Spencer. What do you know.
Narrator: The Irelanders and Hiro shunted and shifted Rocky into the right place. Very slowly and carefully, Rocky lifted Spencer back onto the tracks. And then with a mighty heave and ho, Hiro pulled Rocky and Spencer towards the Sodor Steamworks.
[The scene changes to Spencer at the Steamworks]
Narrator: When Spencer was fixed, he join Olwin, Hiro and Thomas. Together, the four engines worked on the summer house. They huffed and puffed their hardest.
[They finished work on the summer house]
Spencer: Thomas, I'm sorry I thought you, Connor and his friends were very tricky. And Hiro, I'm sorry I called you a heap of scrap. You are all fine friends.
Fluttershy: It's okay.
Applejack: Oh, don't worry about it, you're forgiven.
Connor Lacey: That's alright.
Shi La Won: We forgive you.
Fu Fu: (chitters in agreement)
Spencer: And Olwin, I'm sorry for being mean to you over the years and pushing you off the rails. Can you ever forgive me, my one and only sister?
Olwin: Of course I can.
Spencer: Thank you. Can The Duke, Duchess and I come to visit your home, Chuggington sometime?
Olwin: Of course you can.
Jeremy Belpois: Well, that settles that.
Narrator: Just then, The Duke and Duchess arrive for their holiday. They were delighted with their new summer house.
[The scene changes to the summerhouse that night]
Narrator: That night, Thomas and Hiro were resting. Their axles ached and their wheels were weary. Shi La and Fu Fu stayed with them. They and Thomas saw that Hiro was sad.
Thomas: What's the matter, Hiro?
Shi La Won: Yeah, don't you feel happy now that you have been restored and we're together again?
Fu Fu: (confused chitter)
Hiro: You've both been very kind, Shi La and Thomas. The best friends I could ever had along with Connor and the Irelanders. But I want to go home.
Shi La Won: (putting a hand on Hiro's buffer beam to pat him with comfort) I know how you feel, Hiro.
Fu Fu: (comforting chitter)
Shi La Won: I can always go back to China for a visit from time to time.
Hiro: That will do, Shi La. I understand your decision.
Thomas: We understand, Hiro. (gasps) We can help you. Wait here. Come with me, Shi La.
Shi La: Okay, Thomas.
Narrator: And before Hiro could puff Master of the Railway, Thomas had chuffed away.
[The scene changes to Knapford station]
Thomas: Sir, we need your help. We know you'II understand. Hiro wants to go home.
Shi La Won: Yes, he is really homesick.
Fu Fu: (chitters)
Thomas: He hasn't been home for a very long time and he misses his friends and his island.
The Fat Controller: I understand, Thomas. You and Shi La did well to ask me. Of course, I will help you. Tell Hiro not to worry.
[Thomas and Shi La smiled and the scene changes to a few days later at Brendam Docks]
Narrator: A few days later, all the engines were at Brendam Docks. They were very excited.
Percy: Here he comes, Thomas.
Thomas: Right, everyone. One, two, three!
[The Steam Team whistled]
All the engines whistled. Then there was one long and low whistle.
Narrator: It was Hiro. Hiro chuff slowly up the track and stop by Thomas and Percy.
Thomas: It's time for you to go home, Hiro.
Hiro: It is, Thomas. I will never ever forget what you did for me. I would never forget you or Connor and his friends too.
Connor Lacey: We'II miss you, Hiro.
Fireman Sam: Hope we get to see you again soon.
Twilight Sparkle: And we hope you have a safe journey home.
Hiro: Of course. I'II miss you, Shi La.
Shi La Won: (with happy tears in her eyes) I'II miss you too, Hiro.
Fu Fu: (chitters)
Aviva Corcovado: See you around, big guy.
Koki: And send us a postcard now and then to keep us up to date.
Norman Price: (in Sid's voice) It's okay. We'II always be here for you.
Shi La: If you ever see Yuan again, tell him I say hi.
Hiro: I will, Shi La.
Shi La: Remember Hiro, no matter happens, I'II always be with you forever.
[The reprise of If I Never Knew You starts playing]
Shi La: (singing) And I'm so grateful to you.
Hiro: (singing) I'd have lived my whole life through
[Shi La hug Hiro one last time as Fu Fu sobs happy tears]
Hiro: We will meet again someday.
Shi La: That we will, Hiro. That we will.
Thomas: Perhaps, I can visit you.
Percy: Or perhaps, you can come back and visit us one day.
Hiro: Maybe, Percy.
Thomas: Sodor will always be your home too, Hiro.
Hiro: I know, Thomas. Thank you.
Shi La Won: See you soon, BJFF.
[Hiro whistles along with the engines as he went to his ship and the title The End appears as the screen fades to black]
[Then a bonus scene appears]
Connor Lacey: Well, kids, if you thought that was cool, then get a load of what Spencer's doing.
Spencer: (singing) Fame and fortune Was all I desired (I desired, I desired) But all that grew inside of me was the darkness I acquired
[Flashbacks of Spencer's visits to Sodor play as the song continues]
Spencer: When I began to fall and I lost the path ahead, that's when your friendship found me and it lifted me insteadLike a phoenix burning bright</p>In the sky</p>I'll show there's another side to me</p>You can't deny</p>I may not know what the future holds</p>But hear me when I say</p>That my past does not define me</p>'Cause my past is not today</p>[More flashbacks of Spencer's past visits play as the song continues]</p>Spencer: Ambition is what I believed</p>Would be the only way</p>To set me free</p>But when it disappeared</p>And I found myself alone</p>That's when you came and got me</p>And it felt like I was home</p>Like a phoenix burning bright</p>In the sky</p>I'll show there's another side to me</p>You can't deny</p>I may not know what the future holds</p>But hear me when I say</p>That my past does not define me</p>'Cause my past is not today</p>[The sun sets behind Spencer as the song ends]</p>Connor Lacey: Well, that's all for now, folks. But we'll be back soon with all new adventures and much, much more. See ya soon.
[Norman Price pops up]
Norman Price: And also don't forget to check out new adventures made by me, Norman Price.
Connor Lacey: Norman! We're a team! It's our adventures! You supposed to say made by us!
Norman Price: I know. I was telling the kids here that I'm making plans of my own. I'm a guest star in your series.
[Connor just sighs and facepalms as the screen goes black]
[The credits roll]
[Then, the preview of the next adventure begins]
Lloyd Garmadon: When we arrived on the island called Mata Nui, things have gotten really strange when a mask of light has glowed bright and our quest for the Toa of Light begins. But our enemies including the Makuta has heard of this and send out the Rahkshi to destroy us.
