A comedy in the tradition of _"Hi-de-hi!" (1980)_ and _"You Rang, M'Lord" (1990)_, sharing much of the same cast. Set around a railway station in 1960's rural England, the employees of the state run railway system are the usual bunch of misfits, constantly putting their foot in it just trying to live their normal lives.

Have a cup of tea.
That's the British response to everything. The King has abdicated, have a cup of tea. Hitler's invaded Poland, have a cup of tea. The atom bomb has dropped, have a cup of tea.
One lump or two?

This is a very underrated show, I really don't know why as it's so much fun! Many people think it's less funny than David Croft's other work such as Hidehi and You Rang M'lord, but I would hasten to disagree. The first few episodes are a little slow to get going, but after that it becomes hilarious! Series 2 is even better than Series 1, and I feel that if it had been allowed a 3rd series, it could have become a huge hit! The sunny setting is great and the characters are all wonderful - the Skinner family run Hatley station & take care of all the other staff - potty Ethel & her equally potty son Wilfred; predatory Vera Plumtree whose husband ("he was an engine driver you know") is now deceased, and therefore she now goes for anything in trousers! May Skinner is also a bit of a flirt, especially when new Station Master Cecil Parkin arrives and she realises that he is in fact her old flame
and possibly the father of her teenage daughter Gloria!!! Harry
Lambert is a hilarious character, especially in episodes such as "Action Stations" where the staff all have to do role plays to prepare for the visit of Dr Beeching himself! A great series, full of slapstick fun!
