Paddington Bear is found at the station. The Browns first meet Paddington on a railway station -- Paddington station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade, a suitcase and his hat. The Browns soon find out that Paddington is a very unusual bear. Ordinary things -- like having a bath -- become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is around.
