The Railway Children

“Stand firm” said Peter, “and wave like mad!”

When their father mysteriously leaves home, Bobbie, Phyllis and Peter must move to a small cottage in the countryside with Mother. It is a bitter blow to leave their London home, but soon they discover the joys of the hills and valleys, the canal and of course, the railway. But with the thrilling rush and rattle and roar of the trains comes danger too. Can the plucky trio come to the rescue? And, most importantly, can they solve the mystery of why their father disappeared?

    Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are three children that have great adventures to do with the railway near their cottage-three chimneys. I would recommend as an age rating 10-14
