Red Carpet, The
Suitable for All Groups
A charming and often surreal comedy about a station that has no trains and its eccentric staff.
Although it retains a skeleton staff, Bungley Railway Station has not seen a train for several years - something of a surprise for the newly-appointed stationmaster. The Stationmaster determines to rectify matters but even the sabotaging of the track the railway company prefer to use is of little benefit. It is only with the proposed arrival of some very special visitors that things look up. Unfortunately, and crucially, a train is not the only thing that Bungley is short of.
