THE RAILWAY CHILDREN - The Old Gentleman


The children loved the railway. They knew all the trains that passed by; particularly the 9.15 train. The chlidren liked to wave at one particular old gentleman who travelled on the 9.15 train every day.

One day, their mother was not feeling well.Dr Forrest confirmed that their mother was sick and had to stay in bed. He told Bobbie that he will give her mother some medicine and she also needs fruit and milk,and some other special things to help her recover. He wrote the things down on a piece of paper and gave it to Bobbie.
Later,Bobbie showed her mother the piece of paper. She told Bobbie that they are poor and simply can't afford to buy all those things. Bobbie was determined to get those things for her mother. She, Peter and Phyllis sat and talked together on how to get those things. They decided to make a big banner using a white sheet. They painted the words "LOOK OUT AT THE STATION" on it.


The next morning, Peter fixed it on to the fence and waited for the 9.15 train. The old gentleman saw the sign.When the train stopped at the station,Phyllis managed to push a letter into his hand. The old gentleman read their letter and was moved by their plea to help their mother.

The same evening, the old gentleman sent all the things they had asked for and something extra in a large box. Perks the friendly potter sent the box to them.The children were very happy but they weren't very sure how their mother would react to their plan.
