Introduced by. Illustrations by C. E. BROCK. The Railway Children was one of the first children’s classics I ever read. I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it. It was a strange old-fashioned hardback copy that I found for threepence at a jumble sale. It was very battered, with all the illustrations coloured in very badly, which was annoying. I started reading the story and was immediately gripped. It wasn’t hard to read at all; it was wondrously easy.
Known as Daisy by her friends, she was constantly looking for fun and adventure with her siblings. She was unable to settle at any of the boarding schools that her mother sent her to and ran away on more than one occasion. Imagine how each of the children and Mother would react to this happy event and write your own final chapter. Imagine you are the director of a new stage production of The Railway Children.
Эдит Несбит The Railway Children. Chapter I. The beginning of things. They were not railway children to begin with. This was the first train the children saw on that railway which was in time to become so very dear to them
Эдит Несбит The Railway Children. I don’t suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook’s, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud’s. This was the first train the children saw on that railway which was in time to become so very dear to them.

They only shivered and sneezed and hoped the walk to the new house would not be long.
They become the railway children – they know all the trains, Perks the station porter is their best friend, and they have many adventures on the railway line. One fee. Stacks of books.

They were not railway children at the beginning. They lived with their father and mother in London. These three lucky children had everything that they needed. Pretty clothes, a warm house, and lots of toys. There were three of them. Roberta - she was always called Bobbie, and was the oldest. Next came Peter, who wanted to be an engineer when he grew up. And the youngest was Phyllis, who was always trying to be good. They also had a wonderful father who was never angry, and always ready to play a game. They were very happy. But they did not know how happy until their life in London was over, and they had to live a very different life indeed.
Nearly a hundred years after its original publication, "The Railway Children" is still one of E. Nesbit's most beloved and delightful stories. Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis were very happy living in a comfortable house surrounded by a cook and servants and two loving parents, until one evening when there was a knock at the door and their father was mysteriously taken away by two men. Suddenly alone, their mother moves the family to a small cottage in the countryside. Nearly a hundred years after its original publication, "The Railway Children" is still one of E.
