The Good Old Days is a 2000 annual story.


Duke scolds Thomas for being cheeky to Gordon and tries to teach him about co-operation and teamwork. Thomas puts Duke's teachings into practice when the old engine fails and Thomas helps to choose the right engine to pull "The Picnic" in his place.



  • Peter Sam has his old funnel.
  • Duke's running board is light grey.
  • All the engines' coupling hooks are grey.
  • "The Picnic" was a train run on the Mid Sodor Railway, but the story takes place on the Skarloey Railway and "The Picnic" does not exist anymore.
  • Rheneas has a red/vermilion livery, but here he is depicted in purple.
