Michael Angelis UK Version:

  • Michael Angelis: On the Island of Sodor, high up in the mountains was a mysterious boulder. It had stood alone for a long time. But one day, workmen arrived to build a quarry on the land below. Rusty the Little Diesel met Thomas and Percy.
  • Percy: Where's all this rock coming from?
  • Michael Angelis: Percy asked.
  • Rusty: The new quarry.
  • Michael Angelis: Replied Rusty.
  • Rusty: This mountain rock is good for many things, although it's dangerous up there.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • Michael Angelis: Asked Thomas.
  • Rusty: Because of a big boulder. I think it's watching me.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Rusty nervously.
  • Percy: How can it be? Boulders don't have eyes.
  • Rusty: That's as maybe Percy, but there's something strange about this one.
  • Michael Angelis: Just then, Edward arrived. He was delivering a new piece of machinery from the quarry.
  • Rusty: What's that?
  • Michael Angelis: Asked Rusty.
  • Edward: It's called Thumper. Apparently it helps collect the rock faster.
  • Michael Angelis: Replied Edward. Soon, Thumper was working hard. The men were pleased, but no one bothered to check the boulder. When it rained, the workmen went away. Rusty gazed up and shivered. Above stood Boulder. Suddenly, a large slab of rock landed on the rails. Rusty was shocked, driver was concerned.
  • Rusty's Driver: We best leave till the weather's better. The rain loosens some of this rock.
  • Michael Angelis: He said.
  • Rusty: I think its Boulder wanting us to go away.
  • Michael Angelis: Whispered Rusty. The next day, the sun shone. The quarry was filled with more machines. Suddenly, Rusty noticed something.
  • Rusty: Boulder's moving!
  • Rusty's Driver: Don't be so daft, it can't.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Rusty's driver. But it could.
  • Rusty: It's rolling along our line!
  • (The boulder begins to chase Rusty)
  • Rusty's Driver: We'll stop here until Boulder passes by.
  • Michael Angelis: Said Rusty's driver. But Boulder was nowhere to be seen. Suddenly...
  • Rusty's Driver: Oh no, it's behind us!
  • Michael Angelis: Just ahead, they saw a small junction. One line went uphill. Boulder thundered past. Meanwhile, Skarloey was making his way up to the quarry. Then, he saw Boulder.
  • Skarloey: Eeeyyoooiiikkeesss!
  • Michael Angelis: Boulder was catching up to them fast, but they veered into a siding.
  • (Skarloey reaches a siding just before Boulder destroys the water tower)
  • Skarloey: We must warn the yards!
  • Michael Angelis: Shouted Skarloey.
  • Rusty: Yes, but how?
  • Michael Angelis: Called Rusty. Boulder rounded a bend and there ahead was Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: It's running loose!
  • Michael Angelis: Yelled Rheneas. His driver drove him back as fast as he could.
  • Rheneas: Eeeyyoooiiikkeesss!
  • (Rheneas races away from Boulder and crashes into a bunker)
  • Rheneas' Driver: Rather a smash than a squash.
  • Michael Angelis: Sighed his driver. At the yards, Percy was collecting trucks. Then, he heard Boulder.
  • Percy: Oh no, it's heading straight for me!
  • (Boulder crashes into the sheds, creating a massive explosion)
  • Michael Angelis: When The Fat Controller inspected the damage, he decided to close the mine. Then, he looked at Boulder.
  • The Fat Controller: We should have left this part of the island alone.
  • Michael Angelis: He said thoughtfully. They moved Boulder to a hill close by the yards. Rusty is sure that on a clear night, it is gazing up at the mountain and that its size are being carried on the wind to where it once used to stand proud and silent. I wonder if Rusty is right, don't you?
