Their new house stood in a field near the top of a hill. There was a railway line and a tunnel at the bottom of the hill.They had breakfast together and helped their mother to unpack and arrange everything in the rooms.Late in the afternoon,Bobbie,Peter and Phyllis decided to go and see the railway.

The railway was situated at the bottom of the hill. There was a wooden fence there. The children climbed on top of it to watch the train. They were excited when they saw a train going by them.They went down to the station and saw the potter half asleep. There were many railway lines at the station.There was a large heap of coal at the station yard and a white line on the wall. Peter asked the potter what the white line meant. The potter told him that it indicated how much coal there was in the heap and if anyone steals some the potter would know about it.
The children stopped going to school. Their mother wrote stories to provide food on the table. During rainy days, the house was very cold. They couldn't have fires because coal was very expensive. Peter decided to take some coal from the station yard. Bobbie and Phyllis joined in to help Peter to carry the coal up to the house.The children told nobody.

One night, the station master caught Peter stealing coal at the station. Bobbie and Phyllis also admitted helping Peter to take the coal. Peter reasoned that he was only taking them and not stealing. 
The station master pitied Bobbie,Peter and Phyllis and let them go with a reminder not to repeat their act again. The children realized that what they did was wrong and did not steal again.
