DEAD ENGINES: HORROR STORIES OF THE RAILWAY
by Derek Heath
In the old west, a spectre of death rides a locomotive bound for disaster. The Chicago L takes a casualty one rainy night – and leaves in its wake something far, far worse. The Norfolk countryside is wracked by a horrific crash, and a bloodthirsty passenger makes a mountainside journey even more perilous…
Journey down thundering tracks, lurching from carriage to carriage as the monsters and beasts in this book fight for control of an engine veering rapidly out of control.
In this collection of six railway horror stories from Derek Heath, author of Drop Bear and Day of the Mummy, inspiration is drawn from the classic horrors of the nineteenth century. What really lurks in the engine room? What’s lying dormant in the sleeper carriage? And will any of our doomed passengers ever make it to their destination?
