When Foreign Office Civil Servant, Charles Waterbury is imprisoned for selling state secrets, his wife up-sticks, moving her children to Three Chimneys Cottage, Somerset. Discovering a railway near their new home is just the beginning of a series of adventures for the Waterbury Children Roberta (Bobbie), Peter and young Phyllis.
