The Platform Edge: Uncanny Tales of the Railways - Mike Ashley

wrapping up my night spent reading and forgetting the world we know today, with two very quick stories from this ‘weird trains and railways’ collection.

 

the stories are moving underground - ‘the Tube’, as it were - Underground Railway systems. at least, that’s where I ended up tonight - going from ‘A Ghost on the Train’ by Dinah Castle, to ‘The Underground People’ by Rosemary Timperley; the women are really bringin’ it to this collection, here and earlier. Castle’s entry was great, and Timperley maybe surpassed her, with a completely different idea - she certainly knows what’s to be hated about a simple subway ride.
