About The Railway Children

After a record breaking run E. Nesbit’s classic THE RAILWAY CHILDREN triumphantly steams back into the ‘Welcome to Yorkshire’ theatre at London Waterloo for a second time. London’s breathtaking theatrical event is once again staged at the former Eurostar Terminal where a 1,000 seat venue has been built around the railway tracks with audience seated either side. The Railway Children adapted by Mike Kenny and directed by Damian Cruden has arrived, bringing with it all the power of hope, the romance of steam trains, and the magic of theatrical invention. Featuring Stirling Single, a gorgeous 66-tonne steam locomotive and the Old Gentlemans’s Saloon (from the original Railway Children film) join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they tell their story of joy, sadness, laughter and love.

This spectacular adaptation of Nesbit’s classic steams into London’s Waterloo Theatre from York Theatre Royal where it was originally produced at the National Railway Museum.
