Railways' Strangest Journeys: Extraordinary but true stories from over 150 years of rail travel by Tom Quinn

A fascinating collection of entertaining stories from as far afield as Europe, Indian and America revealing unusual railway journeys across the centuries, including ghost trains, vanishing passengers and trains fitted with homing pigeons instead of a communication cord! From eccentric lords, who transferred their carriages complete with horses and footmen onto the train, to drivers who stole garden fencing to keep up a good head of steam. 'Railways Strangest Journeys' takes you from the dawn of railway travel when speeds of 15 mph were considered blasphemous and damaging to one's internal organs through the Victorian heyday of Royal Trains and seaside specials, right up to the present day.
