The Great Train Robbery!

Hold the front page! Monkey and the Lego Policeman have foiled the Great Train Robbery!  What happened?

Well our roving reporter confirms that at 8.18am this morning Thomas the Tank Engine was taking Monkey’s Christmas millions and Hard Cash cargo from one end of the Living Room to the other.  There appeared to be a tree trunk across the track so Thomas slammed on his brakes – it was a near miss!

The Great Train Robbery!Out of nowhere 2 shifty looking characters on motorbikes appeared ……..

The Great Train Robbery! The Great Train Robbery!

Thomas wasn’t happy, but what could he do?  Before he knew it the hoodlums had broken into the carriage containing the cash – they were up to no good!

The Great Train Robbery! The Great Train Robbery!

 

Oh no! The leader of the gang is filling his sack with all the loot! He’s even taking Monkey’s Christmas stash!!

 

 

 

 

The ruffian called out for his accomplice to bring his motorbike ……

 

The Great Train Robbery! The Great Train Robbery!

 

They soon realised that motorbikes might not have been such a good idea for stashing the cash!

 

 

 

Oh no!  That pesky Thomas has called the Cops!

With sirens blazing PC Plod is in hot pursuit.  The crooks drop most of the loot and zoom off on their motorbikes ……

 

 

Can they get away?  Will crime pay?  Will Monkey get his Christmas chocolates back? …….

One criminal crashes …….

We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
