The Railway Children Paperback / softback

Part of the HarperCollins Children's Classics series

Paperback / softback


This beautiful HarperCollins Children's Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf. Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis have lost their father.

He has disappeared and, with him, their happy life in London too.

They have a new life now, in a new place, in a new (but truly quite old and shabby) home beyond the train tracks. Each day of this new life, they greet the 9.15am train and hope it carries their love to Father, wherever he has gone.

But the railway promises to bring something else entirely . . . Along its tracks, the siblings will stumble upon unexpected friendships, madcap adventures, a near disaster or two and, just maybe, a way to find their father.

Endlessly enchanting and entertaining, this story from the author of Five Children and It remains as heartwarming today as when it first appeared in 1905. Complete your library with HarperCollins Children's Classics.
