Synopsis:
Starring Jenny Agutter and Bernard Cribbins, Lionel Jeffries' adaptation of E. Nesbit's much-loved bestseller, The Railway Children is a timeless and enduring affair.

.....this wonderful film. And I say that as a middle-aged man! Saw it as a child and parts as a young adult but having heard Bernard Cribbins on the radio, who is the main character in this film for me, looked up which films he had been in and thought, why not, haven't seen that in years! It indeed is not only suitable for families but to those of us with a playful imagination and some good character acting. The General Info tag pretty much has the basic plot so will not repeat it. So go ahead, book it out and light the log fire to watch this great film. Enjoy!!
