I studied the novel ‘ “The Railway Children ” by Edith Nesbit. An event which I find interesting is when Bobbie and her siblings saved the train.
One day, the children took a walk along the top of the hill beside the railway line. Suddenly, they heard a noise and saw half the hillside crashed down onto the railway line below. The children realised that the 11.29 a.m train was in danger. They used the girls’ red petticoat to make six flags to warn the train. The train came down the track too fast. Bobbie was afraid that it would not see them. She ran onto the line waving two flags. The train stopped just twenty metres away from Bobbie.
I find this event interesting because the children have shown their bravery to save the train. They were not afraid instead they were willing to risk their lives to save the train and the passengers in it. Bobbie was brave enough to run onto the track when she realized the train would not stop. This act should be praised.
Another reason is their team work. They worked together to save the train; tore the girls’ red petticoat and made six flags to warn the train. Here, I could see that they cooperated to accomplish their mission, that was to save the train.
This interesting event makes the story more interesting. Reading about the children’s courage and the adventure they went through is definitely exciting.
