I will be honest. When I start to do a video like this I usually have no idea what direction I will take. The only thing I knew was that I was going to show the Brake Van and Coal Wagon that we got from Amazon. In setting things up I needed a couple of locomotives – Thomas was an easy choice and since the Hornby Percy was already there we used it. Then I thought to get Stepney. (All the other locomotives are still waiting for the start of The Great Race).

Ended up using the tank cars since they were already on the track. I think somebody on YouTube thought I was calling Thomas “Thomas the Tank Train” before but I didn’t – he was pulling a tank train. Anyway, this is what we ended up with. Maybe one day I will use a script.
