Lionel Jeffries’ adaptation of E. Nesbit’s much-loved bestseller, The Railway Children is a timeless and enduring affair.
After their father is mysteriously taken away, three Edwardian children move to the country where the local railway becomes a source of hope and adventure. Sensitive without being sentimental, the film perfectly captures a magical moment in childhood, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest children’s films of all time.
