Train Teasers : A Quiz Book for the Cultured Trainspotter Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


When was smoking banned on trains?Which actor restored kippers to the menu of the Brighton Belle?What regular lineside event did Dickens describe as 'a shave in the air'?

Perfect for a trivia night or a long trip, Train Teasers will both test your knowledge of this country's rail system and enlighten you on the most colourful aspects of its long history.

Meet trunk murderers, trainspotters, haters of railways, railway writers, Ministers for Transport good and bad, railway cats, dogs and a railway penguin.

This is NOT a book for number-crunching nerds. Many of the answers are guessable by the intelligent reader.

It is a quiz, yes, but also a cavalcade of historical incident and colour relating to a system that was the making of modern Britain.
