THE BRITISH RAILWAY STORIES

Book 1: Tale of the Unnamed Engine


In Tale of the Unnamed Engine, a young boy finds himself in a museum filled with talking trains, and with the help of an old steam engine, travels back to the late nineteen forties, to experience Britain's steam railways like never before!

The first companion book to The British Railway Stories, and rich in imagery and history, Tale of the Unnamed Engine is the origin story for the characters made a cult hit through YouTube. 

Join Stephen, Allen, and the haughty Sir Ralph Wedgwood in their first adventure, riding the rails between London and Leeds and taking in the sights and sounds of Britain's railways as they used to be!

This impressive first edition, featuring supremely detailed, hand-coloured, original illustrations by Dean Walker, will capture the hearts of a whole new generation of young minds as they journey with our heroes across the length and breadth of Great Britain, behind steam engines great and small.

This book has been written primarily for children ages 7-11, but has been written with parents reading aloud and with children in mind. 

Book 2: Great Western Glory



In this second story a young boy Stanley and his sister Molly who meet up with a long since withdrawn ex-Great Western Railway locomotive who reminisces about her time before and during the Second World War.
In doing so the young children learn not only about a raft of human emotions along with some valuable lessons about life but also the importance of right from wrong through the tales of the old locomotive. But also, about kindness to each other and those around them as they experience once again a world filled with talking trains, and with the help of the comforting and kind old steam engine, they travel back to the late nineteen thirties and into the nineteen forties to a bygone era, experiencing Britain's steam railways like never before!

This is the second companion book to The British Railway Stories, and rich in imagery and history, just like the Tale of the Unnamed Engine as the origin story for the characters made a cult hit through YouTube.

Join Stanley and his family, and the kindly Princess and her friends King George, Clifford Castle and Squaddie in this great adventure, for the whole family as they try to preserve the very best of the sights and sounds of Britain's railways as they used to be!

This impressive second story once again features supremely detailed, hand-coloured, original illustrations by Dean Walker, capturing the hearts of a whole new generation of young minds as they journey with our heroes through time alongside Great Western steam engines great and small.

All of the stories are based upon real situations, featuring real steam locomotives that have existed, with real history and facts on railways cementing it all together.
