A family moves from the city to the country when 'Father' is taken away and they are forced to fall back on their own resources. The children fall in love with the railway and befriend those that work on it. Many adventures follow but still the mystery remains - where is father?


Robert Angell (Father), Elianne Byrne (Mrs Perks), Andrina Carroll (Mother), Marshall Lancaster (Perks), Frances Marshall (Phyllis), Sarah Qunitrell (Roberta), Jonathan Race (Peter), Robin Simpson (Jim), Colin Tarrant (The Old Gentleman)
