The Railway Children

All aboard as Edith Nesbit’s much-loved children’s classic The Railway Children steams onto the Studio stage to give the whole family a pre-Christmas treat. Join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they make new friends in the Yorkshire Dales, wave to the Old Gentleman on the 9.15am train to London, wish Mr Perks a Happy Birthday, help a Russian exile, rescue a boy with a broken leg and, last but not least, avert a major disaster by waving a red petticoat.
