"Stand firm" said Peter, "and wave like mad!" They were not railway children to begin with. When their father mysteriously leaves home, Roberta (everyone calls her Bobbie), Phyllis and Peter must move to a small cottage in the countryside with Mother. It is a bitter blow to leave their London home, but soon they discover the hills and valleys, the canal and of course, the railway. But with the thrilling rush and rattle and roar of the trains comes danger too. Will the brave trio come to the rescue? And most importantly, can they solve the disappearance of their Father?

A really sweet story. I really love the idea in the book that when you help others, you will be rewarded many times over. In their spare time, the children helped others and were good friends to everyone they met. Through their actions, they won the admiration and love of various people, including a particular gentleman, who by his influence, was able to have the children's father acquitted of charges of a crime he didn't commit. And they lived happily ever after. I wholeheartedly recommend this great book.
