Set in 1944 at the height of World War II, life in British towns and cities is becoming increasingly dangerous. Three evacuee children Lily, Pattie, and Ted are therefore sent from their Salford home by their mother to a rural Yorkshire village named Oakworth. There to meet them at the train station are Bobbie who had undertaken a similar journey exactly 40 years before in the original film as well as her daughter Annie and grandson Thomas. With their help, the evacuees soon begin to settle into life in the countryside. But when they discover an injured American soldier hiding out at the railway station, the children set out on a perilous quest to help their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home. ‘The Railway Children Return' is a sequel which arrives more than half a century after its much-loved predecessor, exploring similar themes around friendship, community, and displacement.

Set in 1944 at the height of World War II, life in British towns and cities is becoming increasingly dangerous. Three evacuee children – Lily, Pattie, and Ted – are therefore sent from their Salford home by their mother to a rural Yorkshire village named Oakworth. There to meet them at the train station are Bobbie – who had undertaken a similar journey exactly 40 years before in the original film – as well as her daughter Annie and grandson Thomas. With their help, the evacuees soon begin to settle into life in the countryside. But when they discover an injured American soldier hiding out at the railway station, the children set out on a perilous quest to help their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home. ‘The Railway Children Return’ is a sequel which arrives more than half a century after its much-loved predecessor, exploring similar themes around friendship, community, and displacement.
