I grew up in Memphis (born 1961) and remember enjoying this show and have thought about it from time to time. I remember Mr. Be riding in to the station as the engineer in a real train and being in a plywood train at the station. I also remember Ponce de Lion and Mr. Be reading a story about a troll that wouldn't let the goats across a bridge to get to the grass to graze on the other side - somehow the goats tricked the troll. I wish there was a way to get a copy of an episode or an entire series because it was an entertaining show that served well for children's fantasies.
