We watched a DVD of the programme ‘On the Rails’ with Mark Williams. (He’s the guy who was Ron’s dad in Harry Potter!
Primrose and Daisy brought in the DVD. Their dad is really into trains too!
In this programme we learned about George Robert Stephenson. Listen above to what we learned.
The work he did has got us to where we are today with our modern trains. Check out this one in Ballinsloe Train station!
