Narrator: Rosie the Free Spirit Engine was terribly ill.

Narrator: The workmen had tried to make her feel so much better, but it was no use.

Mr. Percival: “Gordon must take you to the works.”

Narrator: said Mr. Percival.

Narrator: Rosie was feeling very miserable.

Narrator: Then Mr. Percival spoke nicely to Oliver.

Mr. Percival: “We need you to help Thomas and Duck while Rosie’s away.”

Narrator: Oliver was very excited.

Narrator: He already knew Thomas, Duck, Percy and Toby, and very soon made close friends with everybody else.

Narrator: Bertie the Bus gave him a great big welcome too.

Bertie: “Take real good care of Rosie’s coaches.”

Narrator: he advised.

Bertie: “She’s sure to miss them while she’s away.”

Narrator: Oliver was very gentle and careful with the coaches.

Narrator: Katie and Melanie were very impressed.

Katie and Melanie: “Such good manners.”

Narrator: they told 1 another.

Katie and Melanie: “It really is a pleasure to go out with him.”

Narrator: When Rosie came back………….Katie and Melanie told her how well Oliver had managed.

Narrator: Rosie was so pleased to be home that she soon forgot to be jealous.

Narrator: The works had left Rosie’s brakes very stiff.

Narrator: It made her brakes seem they were hard on………when in fact they were not.

Narrator: As a result………….she and her coaches often over-ran the platform.

Narrator: Rosie found this most embarrassing.

Narrator: Gradually…………..her driver and fireman learned to be extra careful.

Narrator: But 1 day…………Rosie’s fireman was terribly ill……….and a relief man took over his place.

Narrator: Firemen had fastened the coupling……..and joined the driver and station master on the platform………….to wait for James’s passengers.

Narrator: The fireman had forgotten all about Rosie’s brakes.

Narrator: Rosie simmered cheerfully.

Rosie: “Not too long now.”

Narrator: she thought.

Narrator: When she saw James slowly approaching…………..Rosie’s brakes were not hard on………….and suddenly she felt her wheels began moving around.

Narrator: She tried to stop……………but she couldn’t, without her driver and fireman.

Narrator: She tried to whistle the warning…………………but she couldn’t do that either.

Narrator: The signal guard, driver and fireman were all stranded on the platform.

Katie and Melanie: “Stop, Rosie, stop!”

Narrator: exclaimed Katie and Melanie in shock.

Narrator: Rosie……..with plenty of steam…………kept on going.

Narrator: The signal alarm went out down the line.

Rosie’s Driver: “Stop the runaway!”

Narrator: Harold the Helicopter was ready for action.

Narrator: The inspector had made a plan.

Narrator: And together forever……….they took off………..right into the sky.

Narrator: At last………….Rosie was getting very tired.

Rosie: “I gotta stop…………I gotta stop.”

Narrator: she panted tiredly.

Narrator: When they got to the next station………….Rosie saw Harold land right in front of them.

Narrator: They entered the platform very slowly…………and not for the inspector to act.

Narrator: Judging his minutes…………the inspector scrambled right into the cab…………and screwed the brakes hard on.

Narrator: At last………Rosie had stopped.

Narrator: Both she and the inspector were very relieved.

Narrator: Then they thanked Harold for helping them.

Harold: “Think nothing about it.”

Narrator: said Harold.

Harold: “I’m proud to be of service anytime.”

Railroad Inspector: “Whew…………”

Narrator: remarked the inspector.

Railroad Inspector: “We must never let this happen again, Rosie.”

Narrator: They were relieved Rosie agreed with him.
