The Railway Children

A wonderful family film adapted from Edith Nesbit's much-loved 1906 novel, The Railway Children follows the adventures of the Waterbury Children - Bobbie (Jenny Agutter), Phyllis (Sally Thomsett) and Peter (Gary Warren). After the enforced absence of their father, the children move with their mother (Dinah Sheridan) to Yorkshire, where they occupy themselves by watching the trains and attempt to discover the reason for their father’s disappearance.
