Pop the steam engine really wants to leave the barn that he's been stuck in for so long. It's damp and cold, and he's surrounded by junk. He'd love to be out in the sun, working with his friends, but can he do it?

With a broken safety valve stopping him from holding steam, Pop is hoping his friend Victoria, and Mr Seward will help him. And indeed, Victoria is anxious that Pop gets help too, but when she asks Mr Seward, he appears to be very busy.

Pop Comes to Seward's Yard is a vivid and cheerful tale that also introduces young learners to the fascinating world of steam traction engines.

Sneak Peep inside:

Sneak peek inside Pop Comes to Sewards' Yard

Pop had been in the barn at Mr. Andrews’ farm for quite a long time. His safety valve was broken, which meant he couldn’t hold enough steam to work anymore.

A few weeks earlier Victoria and Mr. Seward were helping with the harvest at the farm; bringing the grain from the threshing machine to where it was stored in the farmyard. They had seen Pop in the barn and Victoria had asked Mr. Seward if he would help him.

Mr. Seward had said “I don’t see why not, but, it’ll have to wait until we've finished getting the grain in.”

After this, Pop was really hoping Victoria and Mr. Seward would help make him better.

But, as the weeks passed, Pop had nearly given up hope of ever having a fire in him and raising steam again.
