“Lucky the Fat Controller wasn't here today or those guards would have got a right telling off for not doing their job properly!”

Lost Luggage! is a magazine story illustrated using photographs from the television series.


Whilst puffing into the main station, Percy hits a load of luggage that was left on the track. The guards pick it up but cannot move it off the tracks. Emergency action is needed, and Harold the helicopter lifts the luggage from the tracks.




  • The guards were really porters.
  • The title for this story is illogical as the luggage was not lost, it was just causing obstruction.
  • It was said that the Fat Controller was not there that day, but he is seen on the station platform when Percy hits the trolley.
