The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is one of the best-loved family stories of all the classics. When Roberta, Peter and Phyillis’s father is arrested their life is turned upside down. The children move to the country and the railway that runs nearby becomes their greatest source of adventure. One day, they come up with a brilliant plan to make use of the friends they’ve made through the train to prove their father’s innocence and bring him back safely. Will it work? One of the best known classics in children's literature and a firm favourite of all the family. This wonderful addition to the Oxford Children's Classics range is a book to treasure and return to again and again and features the complete and unabridged text. If you love a good story, then look no further.

The Railway Children (Oxford Children's Classics) by E. Nesbit
When their father goes away unexpectedly, Roberta, Peter and Phyllis have to move with their mother from their London home to a cottage in the countryside. At the local station the children make friends with the porter, Perks, and spend their time waving to the passengers on the trains. But although they have many adventures on the railway, one question still remains... Is their father ever coming back?
