Penelope and Bridget are sisters who have just been given their very own railway engine by a rich relative. A railway engine that they drive everyday around the town being followed by a procession of barking boys and yelling dogs. When one day the Hairy Brigands come down from the hill to cause mischief, the railway engine saves the day.

The Railway Engine And The Hairy Brigands is a quirky story of two little girls, a railway engine and a gang of Hairy Brigands who live high in the rainy hills above town. This imaginatively witty story coupled with its adorably gritty images is a classic childhood favourite, that is if you can find yourself a copy of this charming out of print book.
