There is. The 1970 version of The Railway Children is supposed to be great. I would like to watch it too. 🙂
I remember the movie of this from when I was growing up in the UK in the ’70s. Classic stuff. Thanks for the reminder. My 56:
I have heard of the 1970 movie version of The Railway Children. It is considered to be a classic in its own right. Makes me want to watch it.
I think my children might have had this book. The title is very familiar. I think it’s a classic. Is it??
