Jan is a little engine. It doesn't have much to do beyond entertaining the children that visit the railway station as they wait for the bigger, faster, stronger trains to arrive. Jan dreams of being allowed to transport passengers across the mountains too and, one winter's day, Jan gets its wish. But not everything goes as Jan dreamt it would. Will it get its passengers safely to the big city?
