In part 4 made in 1997, there are lots of songs that James Coffey wrote and performed, like stop look and listen, smooth operator with N&W 611 & SP 4449, what do you hear with Strasburg railroad, Illinois railway museum, and Lionel trains, signal lights, I'm an engineer, early in the morning, and the popular dinosaur song. Plus the opening theme song shows on a Marx layout.
