After a record breaking run, E Nesbit's classic triumphantly steams back into the 'Welcome to Yorkshire theatre' at London Waterloo for a second time with performances from 16 June.

Featuring Stirling Single, a gorgeous 66-tonne steam locomotive and the Old Gentlemans's Saloon (from the original Railway Children film), join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they tell their story - of joy, sadness, laughter and love...
