The Railway Children Return

This summer, 'The Railway Children Return' arrives in cinemas on July 15, inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time and starring Jenny Agutter, Sheridan Smith and Tom Courtenay.  This enchanting and heart-warming adventure, set in 1944, tells the story of three evacuee children sent by their mother to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth, where they encounter an injured American soldier who, like them, is a long way from home.  The film was made in Yorkshire in many of the same locations as the original film, along the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway line – the location for the original Jeffries adventure.
