Journeys: Tales from the Train

Category: Reading
Tagged: journeys

With rail strikes planned for the Bank Holiday Monday it looks like we’ll all be staying at home. Just as well we have a stack of journeys stories inspired by train travel!

Of all the methods of transport, trains seem to inspire and evoke the most memorable stories, from clanky steam journeys to meet loved ones; childhood memories of the Yorkshire pits to moving home with a four week old baby, we’ve got it all here to get your train fix.
