Little Peter’s Railway Surprise Goods

by Christopher Vine (softback, 32 pages, £2.99, ISBN 978 0 9553359 6 9)

The author’s hardback series of children’s railway stories is now familiar, this is one of a series of smaller softback books.

This one, only stretching credibility very slightly, tells of an electric train stranded by a power failure being rescued by a diesel which in turn also fails. Being not too far from York, salvation eventually arrives in the shape of record-breaking A4 Pacific Mallard no less, specially steamed by the museum authorities.

With several original watercolour illustrations, these are attractive productions and combine children’s entertainment with a degree of educational value as well.
