    Default Gnomes, steam train & goblins?

    And the 'Gnomes' had furry or strawlike creatures that drove the 'Goblin' leader off a cliff (I remember the illustration).

    Dunno if this is the answer youre looking for, but as soon as I saw your thread title a memory came crashing back into my mind about a book I had as a kid in the 70s called 'The Boland Light Railway' - or something very very close to that. It was definitely about gnomes and a steam train. Hope this helps.

    That sounds a good possibility:


    From http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/b/...ht-railway.htm

    The "Goblin" would have been a leprechaun, accordng to the infortmation there.

    This is the cover of the version I had (in case it jogs a memory) : http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-...e=UTF8&index=0,

    But it does sound like this might be it. Im sure there are Goblins in the book as well.

    That's a long life in print for a children's book. I may just hunt out a copy.
