N- One day Peter Sam was at Crovan's Gate when Henry came in with the Fat, Thin, and Small Controller, they were talking about 'television'. Peter Sam WAS puzzled.

TFC- So mine will go first. Henry takes us to Crovan's Gate.

TTC- Then, we take them to the Small Railway

TSC- Afterwards we do it backwards, we show them the last part of the lines.

TFC- Agreed, see you.

N- Later Peter Sam was talking to Skarloey and Sir Handel

Sir Handel- Television is it? Huh! My driver says television is a lie they don't do things for real. Vulgar, I call it.

Skarloey- Never mind.

Sir Handel- Just wait till the Thin Controller comes. I'LL tell him a thing or two

N- But Sir Handel kept quiet when the Thin Controller DID come.

TTC- Now every engine here will take a part. Hmm, Skaloey Agnes, Ruth, Lucy, Jemina, and Beatrice, Duncan a goods train, and

Sir Handel- I... I...

TTC- Don't feel well, then YOU can go to the Steamworks and get better. I'll arnage for them to take you to pieces. Thank you, Sir Handel THAT WILL make an interesting picture and now Rusty you and Mr. Hugh can...

N- Skarloey winked at Peter Sam while Sir Handel still shocked tried to find his voice, but he couldn't.

TTC- OK, and hmm. Peter Sam as a special YOU can take the special Television Train.

Peter Sam- Oh, thank you Sir.

Jane carried the Thin Controller and the Reporter, Jane, and Gertude has many other wires, while Milcent had all cameras view. Finally the day came. Sir Handel was sulkily placed in positiion as Peter Sam trundeled in. They took off his funnel, his wheels, dome, till at last they had him dis-asmelbled.
