Press Release

Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, THE RAILWAY CHILDREN RETURN is an enchanting, moving and heart-warming adventure for a new generation.

1944 – As life in Britain’s cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children – Lily (Beau Gadsdon), Pattie (Eden Hamilton) and Ted (Zac Cudby) Watts – are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth.

There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter), her daughter, Annie (Sheridan Smith), and grandson Thomas (Austin Haynes), and with their help the evacuees are soon settling into their new life in the countryside.

When the children discover injured American soldier Abe (KJ Aikens), hiding out in the railyard at Oakworth Station, they are thrust into a dangerous quest to help their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home.

Jenny Agutter resumes her role as Bobbie from the original THE RAILWAY CHILDREN and is joined by Sheridan Smith, Tom Courtenay and John Bradley.

The new generation of Railway Children are Beau Gadsdon, KJ Aikens, Eden Hamilton, Austin Haynes and Zac Cudby.

Directed by Morgan Matthews from a screenplay by Daniel Brocklehurst, The Railway Children Return steams into cinemas on 15th July, thanks to Studiocanal UK.
