Duffy the driver is told to keep on going until the lights change,
that's exactly what he does - so he doesn't even notice that he's driven
Little Red Train right under the channel to France! This is a
gloriously detailed book that will be a joy to return to again and
again. With a minimal text and bright, busy pages, Ben Blathwayt's
picture books have enormous appeal for young children.
To The Rescue
a big surprise around every bend in the railway track to Birchcombe
village - but Duffy Driver, The Little Red Train and all their friends
are ready to come to the rescue EVERY time!
clicketty-clack, whoo . . . eee! Disaster! The fast rain to Pebblecombe

enjoy a great day out but now they're all stuck on the tracks. It is up
to the Little Red Train and Duffy Driver to save the day. Do the little
Red Train speeds up and is determined to get her passengers to the fair
on time. As Duffy remarks at the end of the journey, 'You're the Little
Red Express now!'
Race To The Finish
nasty Swish Train drivers have challenged Duffy and Jack to a race and
the winner gets to keep the Little Red Train's very last route! When the
flag goes down, the Swish Train speeds straight out of sight, but
there's worse to come . . .There's oil on the tracks, sheep on the line
and someone has switched the points! Can Jack's quick-thinking save the
aboard! The Little Red Train is in for a very busy day. There's post to
deliver, rails and sleepers for the new track, a flock of sheep for
Hilltop Farm, and lots of passengers for Barnacle Bay!
