Weekly Exhibit

The museum has several recordings of the Revd. Awdry’s Railway Series stories read by Johnny Morris, which were released by Delysé.

DEL153, released in 1966, has two stories which were included in Book 7, ‘Toby the Tram Engine’. The second tells the tale of Mrs Kyndley, who was bed-bound at the time, and saw a landslide on the adjacent railway line. She managed to attract the attention of Thomas and his train, and prevented him from running into the landslide.

As a thank you, she had a visit on Christmas Day when the line was able to reopen. The Fat Controller and friends brought a number of presents, and amongst these were tickets to Bournemouth, where she was able to recuperate.
