Adding to the favourities. A programme called " The Viaduct" which was about an early locomotive bricked up in a railway viaduct arch and a kid who's great grandfather built it. He eventually finds the loco with adult help.
Then there's "Come midnight monday", an import series based on the puffing billy line with a loco called "wombat".
Who could forget the "flocton flyer based on what is now the west somerset railway.
Others include cartoons such as "The wack races", "Dastardly and mutley", "stop the pidgeon", "the funky phantom", "the hair bear bunch", "yogi bear", "huckleberry hound", "deputy dog", "ivor the engine" and "tom and Jerry". Tom and Jerry had to be a fred quimby version to be proper.
