Railway's Strangest Journeys
Available in Stock
First published in 1999, this collection of travellers' tales highlights the most unusual events to have occurred on railways since the earliest pioneer runs in the 1820s. Most of the stories date from the age of steam and include Victorian schoolchildren fare-dodging beneath the skirts of their chaperone and the GWR broad-gauge journey of 1871 that ripped up the rails as it went. Portico's Strangest series.
