Here's the narrator file for section 00, Dedication and Cast List (00.50)

https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/railwaychildren_00_narrator.mp3

For some reason, I can't open my files in the MW, but they'll open if I copy the URL into my browser.

Thanks Peter, that Chapter 00 file is PL OK! Sorry for all the picky instructions about silences at ends of files, etc, but I didn't know who would be narrating and I thought better to put in everything just to be sure!

Not sure why the links don't work for you - they work for me! :hmm:

More of Bobbie's lines Ready for PL:

3:23 https://librivox.org/uploads/dlolso21/railwaychildren_05_bobbie.mp3

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I purposely omitted the joint line, "Three cheers for our Bobbie!" in chapter 4 because she wouldn't be a part of that.
Quite right, thanks for noticing that!

Bobbie Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 5 are all PL OK.

There is just one PL note for Chapter 4, at 1:07 could you please change the pronunciation of "Twopence" to "Tuppence" as the English would say it? It's an optional note for pronunciation, but since you'll be recording more anyway I'd like this to be consistent with the English setting.

Yes, although "The Hare" could be included, as there are two college boys, the other one is "The Hound".

Certainly! I wish I could give it all an English accent, but I'd butcher it with inconsistencies. :-)

In Chapter 10, I noticed a line that is color coded for Bobbie in orange, but it is Mother's line:

“Now,” said Mother, putting her arm round Bobbie and laying her ruffled head against Bobbie’s
shoulder, “try to tell me, dear.”

Here's Spot:

Spot is PL OK! Thanks Foon, I don't have any other talking animals in this book, but you are welcome to claim any other non-overlapping characters. Mrs Viney is open, or there's a "Young Man" in Ch 5, or "Master Perks" in Ch 9, or a "Draper's Boy" in Ch 14 that might suit you?
