This made-for-TV remake of the popular 1970 version is every bit as good as the former film, with Jenny Agutter–the "leader" of the three children in the first film–as the mother. After the father is imprisoned for a crime he did not commit, the family, now poor, must move to cheaper surroundings in the country. The children become enamored with trains and with the characters of the area and, with the help of their new-found friends, set out to prove their father's innocence.
