Storyline: This is based on Family film/Adventure. A group of children is evacuated to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War, where they encounter a young soldier who, like them, is far away from home.

Review of The Railway Children Return:  Salford, 1944. Three evacuee children — Lily (Beau Gadsdon), Pattie (Eden Hamilton), and Ted (Zac Cudby) — are sent by their mother to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth.

There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter, reprising her iconic role in the original film), 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 assist their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home.
