The children and their mother, now penniless, are forced to move from London to rural Yorkshire into a new home next to a railway line. Dealing with themes of justice, the importance of family and the kindness of strangers the event is filmed from the National Railway Museum in Yorkshire, featuring the train from the original much-loved film.
