9780141197821: The Railway Children (Puffin Classics)

When Father goes away one evening, the lives of Roberta, Peter and Phyllis are shattered. They and their mother have to move from their comfortable London home to go and live in a simple country cottage. They soon come to love the railway near their cottage and all associated with it.

From the Back Cover:

They were not railway children to begin with... They did not guess then how they would grow to love the railway, and how soon it would become the centre of their new life, nor what wonders and changes it would bring them.
