  • Narrator: It was a special holiday on the Island of Sodor. Bertie the Bus was working harder than ever before. All the engines were busy too. Duck was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Bertie! The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Bulgy: Stupid nonsense!
  • Narrator: He grumbled.
  • Bulgy: I wouldn't have brought them if I've known. I did have a breakdown or something!
  • Duck: I'm glad you didn't.
  • Narrator: Smiled Duck.
  • Duck: You had spoiled their fun.
  • Bulgy: Bah! Enjoyment is all you engines lived for. One day railways will be ripped up!
  • Narrator: Duck felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Duck: We have a friend called Bertie and he's a bus. But he likes the railway. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Bulgy: Heh!
  • Narrator: Growled the bus.
  • Bulgy: I know Bertie. He's too small in size to be in any use!
  • Narrator: Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: That bus is silly.
  • Narrator: He thought as he steamed away. At the junction, Duck told Oliver all about him.
  • Oliver: I call him "Bulgy".
  • Narrator: Chuckled Oliver and then he puffed happily away.
  • (Fade to Oliver returns who looks serious)
  • Narrator: But that afternoon when the two engines met again, Oliver was no longer laughing.
  • Oliver: Bulgy's friend had come...
  • Narrator: He said...
  • Oliver: ...he's rude too, he's taking Bulgy's passengers home, so as to leave/and leaving Bulgy free to steal ours!
  • Duck: But he can't!
  • Narrator: Objected Duck.
  • Oliver: Bulgy says he can get them to the big station before us!
  • Duck: Rubbish!
  • Narrator: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: It's much farther by road.
  • Oliver: Yeah...
  • Narrator: Continued Oliver...
  • Oliver: ...but Bulgy says he knows a shortcut!
  • (Oliver toots and puffs away. Fade to Duck and Oliver are at the Tidmouth Station, Duck is sad when he sees no passengers are on the platform)
  • Narrator: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Duck: Where are the passengers?
  • Narrator: They wondered.
  • Oliver: Look!
  • Narrator: Shrilled Oliver.
  • Oliver: Look at Bulgy! He's a mean scarlet deceiver!
  • Narrator: Bulgy was wearing a large sign saying: Railway Bus.
  • Bulgy: Ya, boo, snubs!
  • Narrator: He jeered as he roared away.
  • Duck: Come on...
  • Narrator: Puffed Duck to his coaches...
  • Duck: ...let's see what he's up to!
  • Narrator: Duck wanted to get back at Bulgy, but he wasn't sure how. Then in the distance, Duck saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Bulgy wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Duck: So this was his shortcut!
  • Narrator: Chuckled Duck.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He tricked us!
  • Narrator: Shouted Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets! He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • Narrator: Duck's crew examined the bridge.
  • Duck's Driver: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Duck: Passengers are urgent.
  • Narrator: Agreed Duck. Duck slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Bulgy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Bulgy: (groaning) Stop!
  • Narrator: He shouted.
  • Bulgy: It might fall on me.
  • Duck: That would serve you right for telling lies!
  • Narrator: Said Duck. But the bridge didn't collapse. Duck made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Bulgy and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
