Father has suddenly and mysteriously disappeared. Now Mother has moved Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis from London to an old English country house. Missing the hustle and bustle of the city, the children are ecstatic to find that their new home is near a railway station. Making friends with both the porter and the station master is great fun. So is waving to a kindly old gentleman who rides through on the 9:15 every morning. When mother gets sick, it is he to whom they turn for help. And later, when a fortunate twist of fate returns their father to them, they are surprised to find the old gentleman involved once again. Written by an unconventional woman whose friends included H.G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw, this classic has been popular since it was first published almost 100 years ago. Virginia Leishman's enthusiasm translates these adventuresome children into heroes for modern listeners.

    My girls and I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. We save it for rides in the van and it has kept us delightfully entertained. I think I enjoy it as much as my kids do. The adventures of the Railway Children kept us on the edges of our seats. Virginia Leishman is a wonderful narrator whose British accent adds authenticity to the story.
