After two sell out and critically acclaimed summer runs at the National Railway Museum in York, this breathtaking theatrical event arrives in London for a second year.
Join Bobby, Peter and Phyllis as they tell the story of how they became the Railway Children, as one of the country’s best loved novels comes to life.
Using the unique setting of the disused Eurostar platform at Waterloo Station, the audience sit on station platforms either side of a real rail track. Featuring the Stirling Single, a beautiful 60 tonne steam locomotive in one of the most breath-taking theatrical events of the year.
This production supports The Railway Children Charity in helping homeless and runaway children throughout the world.
