Narrator: Rosie is a feisty energetic engine.
Narrator: She can pull both Freight Cars………….and Coaches as well.
Narrator: She’s proud of her smart lavender paint, and so is her driver.
Rosie’s Driver: “Everybody says you have brighten up their entire afternoon, Rosie.”
Narrator: said her driver smiling at her.
Narrator: 1 fine morning Rosie whistled real loudly at the other train engines.
Rosie: “Look at me, I’m the smartest, most beautiful train engine on the railroad track.”
Narrator: replied James.
James: “We’re all helpful and cheerful………our manager says so…….he’s our close friend and mentor.”
Gordon: “You know what, Rosie?
Narrator: asked Gordon.
Narrator: replied Rosie.
Gordon: “You’re getting all buffered up.”
Narrator: Rosie trundled angrily away.
Narrator: Later that afternoon, she still boasted.
Rosie: “I’m the fairy queen of the main line.”
Henry: “I saw you pulling Freight Cars today, you’re only a feisty energetic engine.”
Narrator: Henry snorted.
Narrator: Rosie was more fed up than usual.
Rosie: “I pull some coaches too, Henry.”
Henry: “Well, not as much as I do, Rosie.”
Narrator: Henry grunted.
Rosie: “The manager has promised for me………”
Narrator: Rosie was only making this up.
Narrator: Henry believed in her.
Henry: “What plans?”
Narrator: Henry asked.
Rosie: “Uh, wait and see, Henry.”
Narrator: said Rosie.
Rosie: “Oh dear……”
Narrator: sighed Rosie.
Rosie: “Now what’ll I do?”
Narrator: Meanwhile Percy was shunting the shiny new coaches.
Percy: “Good afternoon, Rosie.”
Rosie: “Are those coaches for me?”
Narrator: asked Rosie hopefully.
Percy: “No, Rosie, those coaches are for Henry’s express, I’ll fetch your Freight Cars next.”
Narrator: But Rosie was gonna play a joke and prank on the other train engines.
Rosie: “Actually, Percy, I’m taking the coaches, the manager asked me to tell you.”
Percy: “But what about the Freight Cars?”
Rosie: “Uh, give them to Henry.”
Percy’s Driver: “Come on, Percy.”
Narrator: said his driver.
Percy’s Driver: “Rules are rules.”
Narrator: So when Rosie’s driver returned, Rosie was coupled to the coaches and she trundled away.
Narrator: Percy returned with the Freight Cars.
Narrator: A few minutes later Henry arrived.
Henry: “Where’s the express?”
Narrator: Percy told him about Rosie.
Percy: “So here are your old Freight Cars.”
Narrator: Henry was fed up, and so was his driver.
Henry’s Driver: “Wait ‘til the manager hears about this.”
Narrator: Meanwhile Rosie was enjoying herself enormously.
Rosie: “What a good plan, what a good plan!”
Narrator: Rosie exclaimed cheerfully.
Narrator: So then………..she saw the manager.
Railroad Manager: “You know, some jokes and pranks are hilarious, but not those 1s, Rosie, you have caused a serious event of accidents.”
Rosie: “Yes of course, I know, kind sir.”
Narrator: said Rosie.
Railroad Manager: “You’re gonna stay in your train engine shed ‘til you’re wanted.”
Narrator: Meanwhile the other train engines teased Rosie.
Henry: “I wonder who’ll be pulling the express today.”
Narrator: said Henry.
Gordon: “I expect it’ll be you.”
Narrator: replied Gordon.
Gordon: “Rosie is stuck in the train engine shed because of her jokes and pranks.”
Narrator: Rosie was feeling very devastated and depressed.
Narrator: The very next morning she went back to work.
James: “Hi there, Rosie.”
Narrator: whistled James.
James: “It’s good to see you out and about again.”
Rosie: “I’m sorry I played those jokes and pranks on you.”
Narrator: said Rosie.
Rosie: “Are those my Freight Cars?”
James: “Of course.”
Narrator: replied James kindly.
James: “They’re pleased to have you back with them.”
Narrator: Rosie trundled into the harbor with her powerful train of Freight Cars.
Narrator: She bustled about all day and night, pushing and pulling them into place.
Rosie’s Driver: “It’s time to go back home now, Rosie.”
Narrator: said her driver at last.
Rosie’s Driver: “No Freight Cars or passengers, just the 2 of us.”
Narrator: But her driver was so very wrong.
Railroad Inspector: “Excuse me.”
Narrator: called the inspector.
Railroad inspector: “I got a meeting with the manager, and I’m gonna be late, can I ride in the back with you?”
Rosie’s Driver: “Of course.”
Narrator: replied Rosie’s driver.
Narrator: She trundled along the line just as fast as she could.
Narrator: The manager was waiting for the railroad inspector and meeting him warmly.
Railroad Inspector: “This clever train engine gave me an excellent ride, you must be real proud of her.”
Railroad Manager: “Of course indeed,” “Rosie, 1ce again you’re a brave and heroic train engine.”
