Camp out Part 1(Pine Hollow, one of the trails that go up to Fox Creek. Lisa, Stevie and Carole are riding through on Prancer, Belle and Starlight on a return trip.)
Lisa: Good girl Prancer.
Stevie: Faster Belle.
Carole: Come on Starlight, catch up.
(They all jump over a log and come into the stable grounds.)
Lisa: We win.
Stevie: Come on. Belle and I totally won.
Carole: Nah, it was me and Starlight.
????: I’d say it was a 3 way tie between all 3 riders and horses.
(The 3 girls look over to see a new girl standing close by.)
????: You lot are really good.
Lisa: Thank you.
Stevie: What’s your name?
????: My name is Rachel Cooper. Nice to meet you.
Carole: My name is Carole Handson.
Stevie: I’m Stephanie Lake, but call me Stevie.
Lisa: And I’m Elisabeth Atwood, but call me Lisa. Nice to meet you as well.
Rachel: Are you 3 the Saddle Club?
Stevie: How did you know?
Rachel: The manager of the stables told me. His name is Max Regnery, right?
Carole: Yes, that’s
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 8 What if scenario FINFinishing strongly.
Narrator: The entire team all agreed on the plan. Madison Ravens volunteered to make the calls whilst everyone else distracted Mr. Ewell and she promised to telephone the controller of the South Western Railway. The next day, the original diesel fleet pretend to be fast asleep. The new diesels were cross.
New Diesel 1: Where are our drivers? They're taking liberties. Those useless fools are late!
New Diesel 2: I know. It's annoying. Not only that, but these lazy shed-potatos are still away with the fairies.
New Diesel 3: I know what's going on here….
Narrator: They soon found out when they saw all the drivers coming towards them with angry faces carrying with them signs saying ‘We Want Our Hatt’s Back!’, We Want Our Ponies Back!’ and ‘We Want Our Steam Engines Back!’
New Diesel 1: What the devil?! GET TO WORK IN US, NOW!!!
Mr. Holden: (Furiously) NO!
New Diesel 2: Oi! You have to obey us, or else...
Miss Ravens: We will neve
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 7 (What if scenario)Unexpected Help.
Narrator: Diesel was presently shunting about the main yards with a Class 14. Unlike the other new diesel, the class 14 was a friendly sort.
Class 14: I’m really sorry for what happened to you and your friends. You didn't deserve to be split like this.
Diesel: Not your fault, Iris. It’s something that was out of our control. I just wish there was something we could do.
Iris: Maybe there is.
Diesel: Like what?
Iris: Where was the accident?
Diesel: At Barrow-In-Furness. Mr. Ewell’s wife died down there on Kellstophe’s train.
Iris: We could do investigating. You mentioned that Miss Ravens and Mr. Holden were going to do that themselves, but hadn’t found time.
Diesel: Good idea, Iris. Come on. Let’s get them and take a look.
Narrator: Iris and Diesel quickly found the 2 drivers at the sheds.
Diesel: Iris, this is Mr. William James Holden and Miss Rachel Marie Ravens. They are 2 of the best drivers on the island. Miss Ravens, Mr. Holden,
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 6 (What if scenario)Getting Used To It.
Narrator: At their new homes, the steam engines had to get used to many different elements. There were less trains, the lines were nearly always quite short, and they couldn't get a proper run. Wilbert; Britannia, (Oliver's and Kate's sister numbered 1450); and Cassandra, (Duck's sister numbered 9681); were with Duck, Kate, Oliver and Percy at Parkend Station. Alice & Mirabel, Isabel & Dulcie and Stella & Heather were coupled behind Duck, Oliver and Kate respectively.
Wilbert: So, what do you think of the railway, my friends?
Oliver: Well, you were right, Wilbert. The scenery is super.... (Sigh.) But all the same I still miss my home (Tear trickles.) Ah well. Still, I shouldn't complain.
Isabel: There there Oliver. We all miss our home too. Things will turn back to normal.
Oliver: But how, Isabel? Mr. Ewell is as stubborn as a mule.
Kate: It's a mystery alright, my brother.
Stella: I second that motion, Kate. It looks like the railway will be dieselised for good.
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 5 (What if scenario)Bidding Farewells.
Narrator: Over the next fortnight, the drivers were very busy. Daily, they had to go to the sheds of the engines going to heritage railways and make sure they had their tanks and bunkers or tenders filled to brim with coal and water, as well as set up the Sodor Railway Trust for the engines to run heritage trains on the mainline. Because of this, they had no time to do their detective work. On many occasions, boyfriend and girlfriend had to give a tear-filled goodbye to their respective lover. The rest of the engines would always come to see them off too, even those from the South Western Railway.
(‘Let It Be’ starts to play. Thomas, Cameron, Neville, Robyn and Gator are departing for the Bluebell Railway. Thomas is also kissing Lady goodbye and has Annie and Clarabel coupled behind.)
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Dark Times hit Sodor, part 4 (What if scenario)Arrangements Made.
Narrator: Next day, the main 6 drivers and Madison gathered at Miss Raven's house in Kirk Ronan, looking on their laptops for heritage railways for the Sodor steam engines to go to.
Mr. Thompson: Alright. Let's see. I think Thomas and Cameron will be safe on the Bluebell Railway with their fellow LB&SCR engine friends. Do you agree?
Mr. Hoskins: Oh yes of course. I've also heard that one of Gator's brothers, Harry, is there too.
Miss Ravens: And I'm sure Robyn will be safe with her 2 siblings as well.
Mr. Hawkins: And I guess Neville will make a good fit too. He is also from the Southern Railway.
Madison Ravens: Yes, your right there now. Then we'll send Sally and Bridget along with Gordon to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. I’ve heard that one of Gordon’s LNER A4 cousins, Sir Nigel Gresley, is there.
Mr. Hawkins: Kate, Oliver, Duck and Percy will be safe on the Dean Forest Railway. They’ve got a good number of Great Western ro
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 3 (What if scenario)A Tough Decision
Narrator: The next day, the engines went to work as usual. But without their pony friends (Dragon in Spike’s case), they felt very empty inside.
(Diesel shunts a train for Kellstophe Castle with Mr. Roberts.)
Diesel: Here’s the Castle Express, Kellstophe, Mr. Hawkins.
Kellstophe Castle: (Sighs) Thanks you 2.
Mr. Thomson: You miss the ponies too, huh?
Kellstophe Castle: More then ever, Mr. Thomson. I mean, they’ve been away on Misty Island for periods at a time, and in Twilight’s and Song Cue’s cases, running their own railways alongside the respective controllers. But the fact that they can never come to the NWR now is disheartening.
Diesel: I understand what you mean. They’ve done so much for us. Without Sunset Shimmer and Fluttershy, I might have never gotten a chance to be on Sodor’s rails again, or gained Duck’s and the other engines’ trusts. And Miss Ravens and Mr. Johnson helped out too of course.
Dark Times hit Sodor, part 2 (What if scenario)Tear-filled Goodbyes.
Narrator: Kellstophe’s repairs took many months. But, near the end of the year, Kellstophe puffed out of the works feeling stronger then ever.
Kellstophe Castle: I feel like a young engine again. Thanks Victor.
Victor: Su bienvenida, Kellstophe. (Your welcome, Kellstophe.).
Kellstophe Castle: And be sure to thank Den, Dart, Brush and the workmen and work ponies too, in case I don’t see them again for a while.
Victor: I will. Don’t worry.
Narrator: Kellstophe puffed back to the main sheds with Mr. Arkwright and Sheriff Silverstar in his cab. He was expecting a big welcome home from all his friends, and his 2 students, Duck and Oliver, the be at the front. He blew his whistle loudly when he got to the sheds.
Kellstophe Castle: Hey guys, I’m back!
Narrator: But, to his shock, everyone looked glum. It was Duck who was the 1st to pick up that Kellstophe had arrived.
Duck: Oh, Kellstophe! Your ok!
Kellstophe Castle: I sure am. They did a grand jo
1906-1921: Early years on the Skarloey line. The line needed an engine to help out with the goods work, and Freddie was just the engine to assist.

1985-1997: Damaged due to a gunpowder accident and was sheeted up, resulting in Ivo Hugh being built. Until...
1997-present: Restored to former glory and becomes the SKR’s number (Still debating on).
