Toby is a song from the fourth season dedicated to Toby and Henrietta. It is based on Toby's theme.


North of the Island, there lives a dear old train,

a little tram engine, Toby is his name.

He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise.

His coach is Henrietta and she’s seen better days.

His mind keeps returning to the good old days

When they were busy

working everyday.

But nobody rides with them nowadays.

They can't understand why things have changed.

Their line is closing down today, forever.

Toby, oh Toby,

What will become of you?

The world's much nicer whenever we see you.

Toby, dear Toby,

There's still lots

That you can do

Oldies but Goldies, we still care about you.

All of the children came to say goodbye

They clapped and cheered

As Toby rang his bell, “Bye bye.”

Everyone was sad to see them go

Whatever will they do,

And where will they go?

Suddenly news came

To brighten up their day

How Toby and Henrietta

Were needed right away

The Fat Controller had written to say

Could they please come

And help right away.

Now they're part of his family


Toby, oh Toby,

Show them what you can do

The world's much nicer whenever we see you.

Toby, dear Toby,

There's so much to learn from you.

Oldies but Goldies, we still care about you.

Oldies but Goldies, we still care for you.
