A Crack in the Track is a book.


What does it take to bring the entire North Western Railway to a halt? Just a crack in the track, some hail on the rail, a toad in the road, and a fuss on the bus. In fact, one thing leads to another until just about everything that can go wrong does. Luckily, there is a breakdown train with a couple of cranes that can fix the big mess.



  • On the second last page of the book, Gordon's tender bufferbeam is blue.
  • Throughout the book, Percy's coal bunker is coloured green.
  • The toad is out of scale.
