The Fat Controller (more formally referred to as Sir Topham Hatt), is the head of the railway in The Railway Series of books written by the Rev. W. V. Awdry. In the first two books in the series (The Three Railway Engines and Thomas the Tank Engine) he is known as The Fat Director. In the third book (James the Red Engine) he becomes The Fat Controller, as the railway has been nationalised ;-)

The series comprises of 11 traditional caches and 1 Bonus cache on a circular walk of 5 miles along well marked public footpaths and roads around the Allesley, Coundon & Brownshill Green areas of Coventry.

All caches are located within 20 feet of Public footpaths. Suggested start and finish for the series is in the car park at N 52° 26.493 W 001° 33.116

Some of the caches intersect the Peppa Pig Trail (visit link) and the George Pig Trail (visit link) Both excellent series!
