Volume 4 (also known as Breakvan) is a South African VHS featuring thirteen second series episodes narrated by Ringo Starr.


Donald and Douglas are delightfully disorganised twin engines from Scotland, and when they arrive they cause The Fat Controller a great deal of trouble. They are worried that The Fat Controller will order one of them to leave his Railway. A brake van makes matters worse until James helps in a surprising way.
