-When I was a little boy,

-about your age I'd say...

0:00:540:00:57

-..or maybe a little older...

0:00:570:00:59

-..I enjoyed staying

-with Mam-gu and Tad-cu.

0:00:590:01:04

-They were special people.

0:01:040:01:06

-Mam-gu was kind

-and would always cwtsh me.

0:01:070:01:10

-She always smelled

-like sweet apples.

0:01:110:01:14

-No-one could make rice pudding

-like Mam-gu.

0:01:260:01:29

-Or make a bed feel so comfortable.

0:01:290:01:32

-My bed in Mam-gu's house was larger

-than the one I had at home.

0:01:330:01:37

-Smooth and welcoming.

0:01:370:01:39

-Soft blankets

-and thick feather-filled cushions

0:01:400:01:44

-She would read me stories

-and sing special lullabies...

0:01:440:01:49

-..before I sailed away

-to the land of dreams.

0:01:500:01:53

-And that was always

-a good night's sleep.

0:01:540:01:56

-And Tad-cu?

0:01:570:01:59

-Tad-cu was my best friend.

0:01:590:02:01

-He was funny and mischievous.

0:02:020:02:05

-He had the greatest laugh

-you could imagine.

0:02:060:02:09

-If Tad-cu laughed,

-the whole world laughed with him.

0:02:090:02:13

-But the best thing about Mam-gu

-and Tad-cu's home was in the garden.

0:02:200:02:25

-That's where I'd spend all my time,

-Tad-cu and me.

0:02:250:02:29

-Tad-cu loved trains.

0:02:290:02:31

-And so, he built the most magical

-and incredible railway you ever saw.

0:02:310:02:39

-His little engines and carriages

-would be the centre of attention.

0:02:430:02:47

-He would polish them

-and look after them...

0:02:480:02:51

-..and they would run happily

-on the railway all day long.

0:02:510:02:55

-The journey would begin

-in the kitchen train station...

0:03:150:03:19

-..and I was the station manager.

0:03:190:03:22

-When Tad-cu was ready, I would shout

-"all aboard for Tad-cu's garden".

0:03:220:03:28

-I would blow my whistle

-and Tad-cu would fire up the engine.

0:03:280:03:33

-Off went the train with puffs

-of smoke rising from its chimney.

0:03:330:03:38

-The train would leave

-the kitchen station...

0:03:440:03:47

-..and chuff-chuff past flower valley

-and Mam-gu's little paradise...

0:03:470:03:52

-..a corner of the garden where she'd

-planted primroses and pansies...

0:03:520:03:58

-..between pieces of slate

-and little stones.

0:03:580:04:02

-Tad-cu had built a tunnel

-in Mam-gu's little paradise...

0:04:030:04:07

-..and when the train came out

-the other side...

0:04:080:04:11

-..it would continue its journey

-around the lawn.

0:04:110:04:14

-More often than not, Wini,

-Mam-gu and Tad-cu's old cat...

0:04:160:04:21

-..would slouch across the track

-at this point.

0:04:210:04:24

-As soon as she heard

-the train approaching...

0:04:240:04:28

-..with a loud choo-choo...

0:04:280:04:30

-..she would dart into the hedge

-and hide...

0:04:300:04:33

-..until the train

-had disappeared from sight.

0:04:330:04:36

-On went the journey

-to the bottom of the garden...

0:04:410:04:44

-..behind the shed,

-towards the compost heap...

0:04:450:04:48

-..before heading for home

-past the hedge, the rosebush...

0:04:480:04:52

-..and Norman and Kevin,

-the two garden gnomes.

0:04:520:04:56

-It would eventually arrive

-at the kitchen window.

0:04:580:05:02

-The train would be out of steam

-by then, but proud of itself.

0:05:020:05:07

-"Kitchen station, last stop,"

-Tad-cu would announce.

0:05:090:05:13

-I would wave my red banner before

-entering the station office...

0:05:130:05:18

-..in the kitchen for a glass of

-milk and a slice of buttery toast...

0:05:180:05:23

-..made by the cafe mistress, Mam-gu.

0:05:230:05:26

-Then we'd go back

-and do it all again.

0:05:260:05:29

-We'd continue like this

-until tea-time.

0:05:290:05:33

-During the evening,

-Tad-cu would work on the carriages.

0:05:490:05:53

-He'd fix them and clean them

-until they shone brightly.

0:05:540:05:58

-"You look after that train better

-than you look after yourself,"...

0:05:580:06:03

-..Mam-gu would whisper

-with a sly smile.

0:06:030:06:06

-"Look after your things and one day,

-they'll thank you for it,"...

0:06:060:06:13

-..Tad-cu would say every time.

0:06:130:06:16

-One stormy autumn day, Tad-cu was

-busy at the bottom of the garden...

0:06:210:06:25

-..clearing the brown,

-orange and yellow leaves...

0:06:250:06:28

-..which had fallen

-from the nearby trees.

0:06:290:06:31

-He would use a rake

-to gather up the leaves.

0:06:320:06:34

-He'd load them into a wheelbarrow

-and pour them on the compost heap.

0:06:350:06:39

-But he left his rake

-on the ground...

0:06:390:06:42

-..as he moved the leaves from

-the wheelbarrow to the compost heap.

0:06:420:06:47

-The next thing he knew,

-he was flat on the ground.

0:06:470:06:50

-He'd tripped over the rake,

-landed awkwardly and hurt his foot.

0:06:500:06:57

-He couldn't move.

-He started to shout for help.

0:06:570:07:01

-Mam-gu was listening to the radio

-in the kitchen...

0:07:010:07:05

-..so she couldn't hear or see him.

0:07:050:07:07

-He was behind the shed,

-out of sight.

0:07:080:07:11

-What on earth was he going to do?

0:07:120:07:14

-Just then, he heard

-a "choo-choo" approaching.

0:07:190:07:24

-As the train neared

-the back of the shed...

0:07:250:07:28

-..it slowed down

-and stopped next to Tad-cu.

0:07:280:07:32

-"Thank goodness you're here,"

-said Tad-cu.

0:07:360:07:39

-"I'm so glad to see you.

0:07:400:07:42

-"Take this to Mam-gu."

0:07:420:07:44

-He took off his flat cap

-and placed it on the front carriage.

0:07:460:07:51

-"OK," he said, "All aboard."

-The train continued its journey.

0:07:510:07:56

-Tad-cu could see it carrying

-the cap past Mam-gu's bench.

0:08:050:08:08

-"On you go, little train,"

-said Tad-cu.

0:08:100:08:14

-There were leaves on the track

-by the rosebush...

0:08:170:08:20

-..but the train

-battled bravely over them.

0:08:200:08:23

-"Oh, no," groaned Tad-cu.

0:08:240:08:27

-Norman the gnome had fallen over

-in the wind...

0:08:300:08:33

-..and he was lying across the track.

0:08:330:08:36

-"That's the end of it now.

0:08:360:08:39

-"The train will hit Norman and

-they'll both be smashed to pieces."

0:08:390:08:45

-But the little train

-slowed right down...

0:08:470:08:51

-..and as it approached Norman,

-it started to shunt him slowly.

0:08:510:08:57

-It used all its strength

-to move the gnome inch by inch...

0:08:570:09:03

-..a little at a time...

0:09:030:09:05

-..slowly and patiently.

0:09:050:09:08

-"Well done, my dear friend,"

-said Tad-cu.

0:09:090:09:13

-"Steady on now."

0:09:130:09:15

-Mam-gu was washing the dishes.

0:09:290:09:31

-She raised her head

-as the train approached her.

0:09:310:09:36

-She was wondering what was lying

-across the front carriage.

0:09:360:09:41

-A rabbit?

0:09:410:09:43

-A bird?

0:09:430:09:45

-The train stopped

-outside the kitchen window.

0:09:490:09:53

-Mam-gu recognised the shape

-immediately.

0:09:530:09:57

-"It's Tad-cu's flat cap! How on

-earth...? What's it doing...?

0:09:570:10:03

-"Oh, no, something's happened.

0:10:030:10:06

-"Bill? Bill?" she shouted.

0:10:060:10:10

-"Over here, Megan," he shouted.

0:10:160:10:19

-The poor dab was in a lot of pain.

0:10:190:10:22

-Mam-gu went to help him.

0:10:220:10:26

-She phoned the ambulance

-and it arrived promptly.

0:10:260:10:30

-Tad-cu was taken to the hospital.

0:10:300:10:32

-They looked after him

-until he was better.

0:10:320:10:36

-Soon, he was back on his feet

-and feeling much better.

0:10:360:10:40

-When I'd go on my holidays...

0:10:450:10:47

-..Mam-gu would tell me that story

-before I went to sleep.

0:10:480:10:51

-I loved it.

0:10:520:10:53

-The story about how

-the little train rescued Tad-cu...

0:10:530:10:57

-..and how Tad-cu would remind us...

0:10:570:11:00

-.."Look after your things and

-one day, they'll thank you for it."

0:11:000:11:05
