(I was thinking that around the time after Tales From The Tracks was released  that this could have been released around summer 2006 and the last Thomas video to be released on VHS)

Best of Duck is a US VHS/DVD release featuring four second season episodes, one fourth season episodes and three third season episodes narrated by George Carlin. It was distributed by Anchor Bay in 2006 and reissued by Lionsgate in 2009.


Known on the Island of Sodor for being Great Western and for being the #8 and GWR on his side, Duck is very proud of his position and talks endlessly, making everything go like clockwork.

Duck's real name is montague and he is the first Great Western engine on Sodor, followed by Oliver on his branchline. Now you can share this exciting commorative Collectors Edition of eight stories with everyone's favorite No. 8 Great Western engine.

Remember the time when Percy and Duck taught the big engines a lesson in authority and when Diesel arrived and caused trouble with Duck among the other engines? When Henry has an extra load with the Flying Kipper, Duck vows to help out - - - - - with distrastrous results and stand back as Duck teaches Bulgy the double-decker bus the importance of passengers.

Hop on board as Duck takes you on a tour of his branchline and on a magical ride across the Island of Sodor. It is very proud for him to be Great Western after all.
