Victorian Tales: Terror on the Train, Paperback

Victorian Tales: Terror on the Train Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Flook

Part of the Victorian Tales series


A crowded train takes a wrong turn and hurtles at full speed into a section of track that should have been closed for repair.

Among the passengers is the writer Charles Dickens. Can young workman Tommy stop the train in time and save the lives of those on board - or is it already too late?

In this dramatic re-telling of one of the worst rail accidents in Victorian Britain, the Staplehurst Railway disaster, Terry Deary explores the fascinating world of the Victorians.

Victorian Tales feature real people from histories and take place in some of the most recognizable Victorian settings.
