• Short Summary

    The Reverend Teddy Boston shows us his model train set, recreating a section of the Great Western Railway.

    Cadeby near Market Bosworth, Leicestershire.

    C/U of two model trains passing each other on a rail track. In the parish church at Cadeby we see the Reverend Teddy Boston coming to the end of a service; the parishioners walk out.

    We see the vicar at his home, working on a model train. Various shots of him operating his huge model set that recreates the Great Western Railway between Newton Abbot and Totnes; it looks extremely detailed.

    Of course, he was The Fat Clergyman in the original Thomas stories, and was indeed friends with the real Reverend Awdry. There is going to be a new documentary about him on the BBC in September.
