An Edwardian family must leave their comfortable London home and move to Yorkshire after their father is taken away by the authorities. Despite their reduced circumstances, they soon find plenty of fun and adventure in the countryside – specifically in the vicinity of the steam-train railway line. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best-loved British family films.
