Publisher Comments:

When their father goes away unexpectedly, Roberta, Peter and Phyllis have to move with their mother from their London home to a cottage in the countryside. At the local station the children make friends with the porter, Perks, and spend their time waving to the passengers on the trains. But although they have many adventures on the railway, one question still remains . . . is their father ever coming back?
