flying trainIt was such a cold night, that Timmy and Nelly were put to bed early. Teddy and Dolly also slept beside them, and Puppy and Kitty slept on the floor, next to the bed. Later on when everyone was fast asleep, Timmy was awakened by a strange sound. “Whooooof…chuff…chuff…”

flying trainìWhatís that noise?î
Timmy murmured,
still half asleep.
ìItís coming closer!î he cried.
Nelly and the others woke up
at the sound of Timmyís voice.
They all looked up toward the
sound and saw an amazing sight.
ìItís a flying train!!!!î
Timmy and Nelly shouted at once.
ìCome on everyone!î
the train shouted.
ìI will take you for a ride
in the sky. All aboooooard!î
