“Railway Children” Coming To Toronto

Who hasn’t played a “chu-chu” train game? We have all enjoyed a wooden train set, pretended the fork was a train in order to feed a stubborn mouth, or acted like a train engine carrying “cargo” around the living room floor. Trains spark the imagination of children, but they also evoke romanticism in adults. Train games are universally and inter-generationally enjoyed.

Perhaps that is why the Railway Children is always sold out London, England. No one has more fun on a train than Bobby, Peter and Phyllis, three children, reduced to poverty in 1910 London, who made friends with the trani conductor and embarked on adventure and discovery.  The good news for train-loving trontonians is that this hit stage production is coming to the Steam Whistle Brewery in Toronto. We can’t wait!

If you need further proof that there is a train-loving child in all of us, check out this sterling silver train set from the Cynthia Findlay Collection.
