Description

This is a collection of stories which celebrate the fascination of trains and railways - stories of danger and menace, stories of happiness and laughter, spy stories, love stories, murder stories, and, most of all, ghost stories. You'll take mysterious stories on strange, unearthly trains, shovel coal on a steam engine, meet unexpected passengers on Eurostar, run into something very dangerous in an Indian tunnel, see a disaster magically averted in Australia, and encounter a famous rock star (is he really dead?) on the Californian Zephyr. Many of the stories have been specially commissioned for this book from well-known children's authors such as Geraldine McCaughrean, Adele Geras, Hilary McKay, Douglas Hill, John Gordon, and Alison Prince. Others are classic stories by writers such as William Mayne, Eleanor Farjeon, and E. Nesbit.show more
