Ray Popes books were often found in school libraries. He was a teacher and author. Perhaps this helped with his style of writing. These days it is sometimes difficult to get kids away from video games and model railway kids may enjoy these stories. However, the printed 2nd hand versions left over from the past are changing hands for quite high prices. The Kindle gives a cheaper alternative.

" A charming story about a family of tiny steam train enthusiasts....Mr Pope brings to it a sense of characterisation and situation, plus a railway expertise that combine to make a very enjoyable book" School Librarian. (The journal of the School Library Association UK).

This book was the first in a series. Reviews of the other books in the series included this one for 'Telford and the Festiniog Railway' which will be released on Kindle soon.

"This series is consistently good... beautifully characterised... exciting and touching, anjd the background of railways and their history lovingly created" Sunday Telegraph.
