Introduction page from the book:
Peter and Grandpa’s little steam railway originally ran across the farm between their houses and the village of Yockletts. But recently, (Peter’s Railway Hits the Jackpot, Book 5), they have extended the railway, by five miles, to Oaksted village.
The new line includes a bridge over the River Wye and a long and curving tunnel under Gorse Hill, not far from Peter’s house.
This story is an adventure set on their miniature railway.
