THE RAILWAY CHILDREN tells the story of the Waterburys, whose happy middle-class existence is shattered one night when their father leaves the family home without explanation, in the company of two mysterious strangers. Falling on hard times, Mother moves them to a cottage in the country where the children become fascinated with the nearby railroad. Waving faithfully to the passengers everyday, their vigilance and courage helps prevent an accident and their kind-heartedness soon wins them many friends – not least of all The Old Gentleman who may be able to help them solve the mystery of their father’s disappearance…. An instant classic on its release, the film made a star out of Jenny Agutter and has proved to be enchanting to children and adults alike. THE RAILWAY CHILDREN is based on the novel by E Nesbit, author of Five Children And It.
