Thomas, Percy and the Coal and Other Stories (also known as Volume 4 in New Zealand) is a UK/AUS/NZ VHS featuring eight second season episodes narrated by Ringo Starr. This VHS was re-released in 1992 under the name Percy and the Signal and Other Stories.



It's full steam ahead for Thomas, the little blue engine with the short stumpy funnel, short stumpy boiler and short stumpy dome and his special friends Gordon, Henry, James, Percy, Edward, Toby, Annie and Clarabel the carriages and of course their Boss, the Fat Controller. His friend, storyteller Ringo Starr says 'Thomas is Number One and never lets anyone forget it!'
