    When Father is mysteriously taken away by the police one night, Bobbie (Jenny Agutter, Walkabout), Phyllis (Sally Thomsett) and Peter (Gary Warren) move to the country with Mother (Dinah Sheridan, Genevieve) to start a new, more modest life. The children wile away the summer days playing on the local railway, where they make the acquaintance of station porter Mr. Perks (Bernard Cribbins, Dr Who, The Wombles, Jackanory), and the Old Gentleman (William Mervyn), who waves to them from his 1st Class carriage every morning. In awe of the great steam locomotives that thunder down the track, the children's resourcefulness is put to great use: one day preventing a derailment, the next saving an injured cross country runner; all whilst they await the return of their beloved Father.
