E Nesbit's classic novel "The Railway Children" is chugging into King's Cross Station Theatre with a real-life steam train.

The theatre seats have been built a real train track, allowing them to bring in a beautiful 60-tonne locomotive (the seats are on either side of the train track -- so it will chug along in front of you!)

The story is one that your mums and dads will remember from their childhood, and follows Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis in their adventure of a lifetime.
