FOOTBALL CHANTS ON TV

0:00:420:00:46

Yeah! Come on, you Blues! Come on, you Blues!

0:00:460:00:50

-How's my team doing, Rebecca?

-Which ones are they?

-The Reds.

0:00:500:00:54

Oh, I'm supporting the Blues. Oh!

0:00:540:00:56

That's it! Yes, yes, yes!

0:00:580:01:01

-Goal!

-Oh!

0:01:010:01:04

-You know why my team are winning, don't you?

-Cos they scored a goal?

0:01:040:01:08

No. Because I'm wearing the team colours.

0:01:080:01:12

-What?!

-Yes, I've got a blue and white scarf and a blue flag.

0:01:120:01:17

If you don't have your team colours, your team won't win.

0:01:170:01:22

They're on telly. They can't see or hear you.

0:01:220:01:25

Yes, but they can feel your vibe, Sid. The blue vibe!

0:01:250:01:28

Oh-oh! Oh-oh!

0:01:280:01:31

-Oh! Hold on, Rebecca. It's time!

-Great!

0:01:310:01:35

It's time to play...

0:01:370:01:38

Whose turn is it today?

0:01:380:01:41

# I'm really, really, really, really happy...

0:02:210:02:24

# It's me! #

0:02:240:02:27

Look, there's the dressing-up room.

0:02:270:02:30

# Let's play. #

0:02:300:02:32

This is really exciting.

0:02:320:02:35

Let's find out what we're playing today.

0:02:350:02:38

So, I've got a diver's snorkel and mask, a racing driver's suit,

0:02:410:02:45

and a knight's shoes.

0:02:450:02:47

I can't imagine a knight driving a racing car under the sea, can you?!

0:02:470:02:52

OK, so we have on blue overalls, a peaked cap, a red scarf, and boots.

0:02:560:03:02

What are we playing today?

0:03:020:03:05

I know. We're playing steam train drivers.

0:03:050:03:08

What do we need to know?

0:03:080:03:10

Steam trains were the first kind of train.

0:03:120:03:15

They were built a long time ago and carried people and things around.

0:03:150:03:19

A steam train needs fire and water to work.

0:03:190:03:22

The fire starts in the firebox by burning coal.

0:03:220:03:25

This heats up water in the boiler, making steam

0:03:250:03:29

that powers the trains' wheels to move it along.

0:03:290:03:32

A steam train always had a guard who used flags to signal

0:03:320:03:37

the train driver because steam trains were very loud.

0:03:370:03:41

A green flag was used to say it was safe to go

0:03:410:03:44

and a red flag was used to say stop.

0:03:440:03:47

And steam trains were designed to run on two different types of fuel.

0:03:470:03:52

Coal and wood.

0:03:520:03:55

So, that's what we need to remember, and do we need anything else?

0:03:550:03:59

Oh, a skipping rope. I wonder what this is for. I guess we'll find out.

0:04:020:04:09

So we've got everything we need. Let's go.

0:04:090:04:11

# Let's play. #

0:04:110:04:13

-Come on, you Blues!

-Hey, Rebecca, guess what we're playing today.

0:04:130:04:18

-I don't know. A coal miner?

-No, we're playing steam train drivers.

0:04:180:04:23

-Oh, now, that is a cool job.

-Yes.

0:04:230:04:25

-Oh, come on, you Blues.

-I'll be off on my adventure.

0:04:250:04:29

You'll miss the end of the match.

0:04:290:04:31

It's OK, the Reds are going to win.

0:04:310:04:34

Goal!

0:04:340:04:36

-Oh, maybe not. See you later.

-See you, Sid.

0:04:360:04:40

# Let's play! #

0:04:400:04:42

Come on, let's play steam train drivers!

0:04:420:04:45

Wee! Oh!

0:04:500:04:53

Right, where are we?

0:04:580:05:01

If we're steam train drivers we need to find a railway station.

0:05:010:05:05

Oh, this looks like it might be one. Let's go and find a steam train.

0:05:050:05:09

-Oh, there you are!

-Hello, who are you?

0:05:090:05:12

I am the guard. My name is Winklepop.

0:05:120:05:15

There's a name you don't hear every day!

0:05:150:05:18

-Hello, my name is steam train driver Sid.

-Good, but you're late,

0:05:180:05:23

-which means we're late.

-Late for what?

0:05:230:05:25

Late for taking the ever-so-important Lord Mayor to open

0:05:250:05:29

the brand-new station at Upper Lower Uppington.

0:05:290:05:33

Right, sounds very important.

0:05:330:05:35

-It is the most important day since I became train guard.

-Right.

0:05:350:05:40

-Come on.

-Let's find a steam train.

0:05:400:05:42

Wow, this place is enormous!

0:05:480:05:51

-TRAIN BLOWS WHISTLE

-And noisy.

0:05:510:05:54

Look at that.

0:05:540:05:56

-The Flying Squirrel.

-Is that our train?

-It is indeed.

0:05:560:06:00

A handsome metal beast.

0:06:000:06:03

That is the fastest train in the station, I'll have you know.

0:06:030:06:07

-It's amazing and I'm going to drive it!

-You certainly are.

0:06:070:06:11

And it's my job to make sure the journey goes smoothly

0:06:110:06:15

and we get the Lord Mayor there safely on time.

0:06:150:06:18

-So, who's the man in the jewellery?

-That is the Lord Mayor.

0:06:180:06:22

Our ever-so-special passenger.

0:06:220:06:25

Oh, your Lord Mayor. Lovely to see you.

0:06:270:06:32

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to our humble station.

0:06:320:06:37

Oh, thank you.

0:06:370:06:39

-Oh!

-Are you OK?

-Oh, yes. Right.

0:06:430:06:47

The Lord Mayor will get to the station opening on time

0:06:470:06:50

if it's the last thing we do.

0:06:500:06:54

All aboard! I've always wanted to say that!

0:06:540:06:57

Right, so here we are in the Flying Squirrel's cab.

0:06:590:07:02

It doesn't look much like a car. Where do you put the key?

0:07:020:07:06

OK, what do I press?

0:07:060:07:08

I've never seen so many pipes and dials and wheels.

0:07:080:07:12

Oh, this might help.

0:07:120:07:14

How To Drive A Steam Train by Horace Shunt. Fantastic.

0:07:140:07:18

Right, the Lord Mayor is in his seat so let's get that steam up

0:07:180:07:22

and roll out of here.

0:07:220:07:24

Hold on, what's this?

0:07:240:07:26

This pressure gauge is all the way at the bottom.

0:07:260:07:30

What is going on? Why aren't we moving?

0:07:300:07:34

It's the pressure gauge. The needle's pointing to the bottom.

0:07:340:07:39

Well, that means we need more steam. More steam!

0:07:390:07:44

More steam! Of course, I knew that. More steam!

0:07:440:07:49

We need to get more steam otherwise we're not going anywhere.

0:07:490:07:53

Oh, hold on, I remember! Do you?

0:07:530:07:57

A steam train needs fire and water to get moving and the fire is

0:07:570:08:01

created by burning coal so we need to put more coal in that coal box.

0:08:010:08:06

Don't worry, we'll have the Flying Squirrel moving in no time.

0:08:060:08:11

OK, right...

0:08:110:08:14

Let's fill her up.

0:08:150:08:17

That should do the trick.

0:08:250:08:27

Ah-ha, full steam. We are ready to roll.

0:08:270:08:32

The train now standing on platform one is the Flying Squirrel

0:08:320:08:36

to Upper Lower Uppington.

0:08:360:08:39

Release the brake and push the throttle.

0:08:390:08:43

We're moving!

0:08:430:08:45

-TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS

-Oh, I love a good toot!

0:08:450:08:49

# We're driving a steam train We're steam train drivers. #

0:08:490:08:53

Let's see how fast this Flying Squirrel really can go.

0:08:570:09:00

Full steam ahead! I've always wanted to say that.

0:09:000:09:04

This is more like it. Hang on tight.

0:09:120:09:17

The Lord Mayor is on course to make his engagement. Thank goodness.

0:09:170:09:23

It's all going well. We're making good speed.

0:09:230:09:28

Oh, we're slowing.

0:09:280:09:31

Why are we going slower?

0:09:310:09:34

We're going up a hill. Because the train is so heavy

0:09:340:09:37

it has to work much harder to get up the hill.

0:09:370:09:40

We need to make this train go faster. Oh, wait a minute.

0:09:400:09:44

We seem to be running out of coal.

0:09:440:09:46

I don't know if we've got enough to get to the station.

0:09:460:09:50

-Are we nearly there yet?

-No, keep going!

0:09:500:09:53

We need to keep going really fast. We can't be late.

0:09:530:09:56

-OK. We're running out of coal.

-Don't use so much, then!

0:09:560:10:01

We really, really, really can't be late.

0:10:010:10:05

Great, so he wants me to go faster and use less coal.

0:10:050:10:08

Is he having a laugh? We're getting much higher now.

0:10:080:10:11

We're nearly at the mountains.

0:10:110:10:14

-How are we going to get around the mountains?

-We don't go round.

0:10:140:10:17

-We go through.

-Through the mountains?!

-Through a tunnel.

0:10:170:10:21

-A what?

-A tunnel!

0:10:210:10:25

Oh, right. A tunnel. Wow, this is really dark.

0:10:250:10:31

I wonder... Ow, who put that brake lever there?

0:10:310:10:36

Are we going to be much longer in this dark?

0:10:360:10:40

Oh, we're out! Yes, we made it to the other side of the mountain

0:10:400:10:45

-and the track is levelling off.

-I'm going to check on the passengers.

0:10:450:10:49

Get on with it. We need to get going. Go on.

0:10:490:10:53

Let's get this Flying Squirrel flying. Full steam ahead, everyone!

0:10:530:10:58

-Sid!

-Oh, Winklepop, hello.

0:11:060:11:11

Why's he waving at me? He's still waving.

0:11:110:11:14

Sid! Sid!

0:11:140:11:18

What's it mean when he's waving a red flag?

0:11:180:11:21

Oh, hold on, I remember. Do you?

0:11:210:11:24

Guards use red to signal to the train driver.

0:11:240:11:27

A green flag means it is safe to go and a red flag means stop. Stop?!

0:11:270:11:33

Oh, right, stop.

0:11:330:11:35

-BRAKES SCREECH

-Whoa!

0:11:350:11:38

Hold on tight, Lord Mayor!

0:11:400:11:43

Phew. Why did we need to stop?

0:11:480:11:51

-Is it safe on the track?

-Oh, yes, I've closed the line.

0:11:540:11:57

This branch must have blown onto the track.

0:11:570:12:01

That's why we had to stop the train.

0:12:010:12:04

-Right, so what are we going to do?

-I think we should...panic! Panic!

0:12:040:12:10

Oh, no! How are we going to get the Lord Mayor to the grand opening?

0:12:100:12:15

Maybe we could give the Lord Mayor a piggyback.

0:12:150:12:18

Oh, great, a piggyback?! We can't do that to the Lord Mayor.

0:12:180:12:22

-We'll have to move this branch, then.

-Right, yes, leave it to me.

0:12:220:12:27

Argh! Argh! Eee!

0:12:270:12:32

-It won't budge.

-Stand back, this is a job for a steam train driver.

0:12:320:12:37

-You're right. It won't budge.

-Oh, no, this is a disaster.

0:12:410:12:46

-What are we going to do?

-Hold on. I've got an idea. We can use this!

0:12:460:12:53

You want to start skipping. He wants to start skipping!

0:12:530:12:59

I don't believe it.

0:12:590:13:01

No, we can tie this around the branch and pull it off the track.

0:13:010:13:05

-That'll never work.

-Have you got any ideas?

0:13:050:13:08

Skipping rope it is, then.

0:13:080:13:10

-OK, ready?

-Winklepop is ever so ready.

0:13:140:13:18

BOTH: Go! Heave!

0:13:190:13:22

Yes, it's come off the track. It's come off the track.

0:13:220:13:26

Yes! We did it! High five.

0:13:300:13:33

-Oh, hello.

-No... Never mind.

0:13:330:13:35

-Come on, let's get back to the train.

-Right.

0:13:350:13:38

Not long now, Mayor.

0:13:410:13:44

Right, we could be on our way again.

0:13:470:13:51

Next stop, Upper Lower Uppington Station. Full steam ahead.

0:13:510:13:56

What's wrong now? Why aren't we going?

0:14:000:14:02

-Oh, what now?

-Oh, no.

0:14:020:14:06

-The pressure's really low. We're out of steam.

-What's going on?

0:14:060:14:11

-We're out of coal.

-Leave it to me. I'll shovel that coal.

0:14:110:14:16

-We've run out.

-Run out?! What have you done with it?

0:14:160:14:19

-I've used it all up.

-Used up all the coal?!

0:14:190:14:22

-It's a very hungry steam train.

-Oh, no, what are we going to do?

0:14:220:14:26

We'll be late. The Mayor will miss the opening to the station.

0:14:260:14:31

Well, we've run out of coal so the train won't go.

0:14:330:14:36

What are we going to do?

0:14:360:14:39

Oh, hold on. I remember! Do you?

0:14:390:14:42

Steam trains use two types of fuel. Coal and wood. That's it!

0:14:420:14:48

We can use wood. Winklepop! We need wood. Where can we get some from?

0:14:480:14:53

Um...

0:14:530:14:56

BOTH: The tree! Brilliant!

0:14:560:14:58

OK, we're going to need plenty. Stand back, I've got work to do.

0:14:580:15:02

That's better.

0:15:200:15:22

OK, Guard Winklepop, blow your whistle and wave your flag.

0:15:220:15:25

-We've got steam.

-Full steam ahead!

0:15:250:15:31

Next stop, Upper Lower Uppington Station.

0:15:310:15:34

Hang on tight.

0:15:370:15:39

-We did it! We made it!

-And, yes, we're on time.

0:15:510:15:57

Oh, mercy.

0:15:570:15:59

I always knew we would be... I think.

0:15:590:16:04

We've arrived. We're here.

0:16:040:16:07

Oh, Lord Mayor... this is your final destination.

0:16:070:16:12

We do hope you've enjoyed travelling with us and we trust you will enjoy

0:16:120:16:17

the rest of your stay here at Upper Lower Uppington.

0:16:170:16:23

We made it, but we'd never have done it without remembering

0:16:230:16:27

everything we needed to know.

0:16:270:16:30

A steam train needs fire and water to work.

0:16:300:16:34

The fire starts in the firebox by burning coal.

0:16:340:16:37

Guards use flags to signal to the train driver.

0:16:370:16:42

And steam trains run on coal and wood.

0:16:420:16:47

The opening ceremony is about to begin.

0:16:510:16:55

I hereby declare this station open.

0:16:570:17:00

Oh, I am so proud.

0:17:000:17:03

So, steam train driver Sid, are you ready for your return journey?

0:17:110:17:17

I think there's another journey I need to make.

0:17:190:17:23

-It's time for us to go home.

-Well, if you're sure.

0:17:230:17:27

-It's been lovely to meet you.

-Thank you, Guard Winklepop.

0:17:270:17:31

-It's been great fun. See you.

-Goodbye.

0:17:310:17:34

Come on, you Blues. Come on, you Blues. You can do it.

0:17:420:17:46

Rebecca, you'll never guess what I've been doing.

0:17:460:17:48

-I have been driving a steam train!

-That sounds amazing.

0:17:480:17:52

-What's the score?

-It's two-all.

-So the Blues aren't winning any more.
