With illustrations by Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl's Guide to Railway Safety is a guide written for young people to help them use the railways safely.

Published in 1991 by the British Railways Board, Roald Dahl's Guide to Railway Safety is a short but funny booklet that was handed out to students in UK primary schools. It is a list of Do's and Don'ts for young people on how to stay safe on the railways - but as Roald Dahl says at the beginning: "I have a VERY DIFFICULT job here. Young people are fed up with being told by grown-ups WHAT TO DO and WHAT NOT TO DO. They get that all through their young lives."

Luckily for the readers of this guide, Roald's very important Do's and Don'ts are served with lots of amusing little extras: stories from Roald's own life, and some funny words from him on what it is like to be a child. 

Roald Dahl's Guide to Railway Safety was one of his last published works
