The Fat Controllers Letter (VHS)Edit

Welcome, My Dear Friends, to a very special treat I have brought all the way from Sodor Railways, just for you.

Yes! Here's another splendid collection of video stories for you to enjoy again and again; and this compilation is particularly special, a real collector's item.

This Classic Collection of videos contains all 26 episodes from the second series of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. It seems like only yesterday when the series was first shown on TV. 'Pon my soul! This was the first time you would have been introduced to Devious Diesel, the Scottish Twins Donald and Douglas, Daisy and dear old BoCo.

You probably won't remember when Britt Allcroft and David Mitton first brought Thomas out of his Engine Shed, and onto the TV Screens. At first, I must confess I was a little nervous.

Would fame and fortune change my Number One Engine? I am delighted to report Thomas is still running on time, and eager to carry grown-ups and their children on my railway. The only problem I have now is that all my engines want to appear in these splendid stories.

Anyway, I have a railway to run, and must go and check The Troublesome Trucks are not being too bothersome!

Thomas and all my other engines and friends wish you hours of fun watching this Second Classic Collection.

With kind regards I remain

Yours truly,
Sir Topham Hatt - The Fat Controller
