    The Platform Edge: Uncanny Tales of the Railways

    Howling down the tunnels comes a new collection showcasing the greatest stories of strange happenings on the tracks, many of which are republished here for the first time since their original departure. Waiting beyond the barrier are ghostly travelling companions bent on possessing the living just for the earthly pleasure of a cigarette, a subway car disappearing into a different dimension without a trace, and a man’s greatest fears realized on the ghost train of a carnival.

    An express ticket to perplexing and unforgettable journeys into the supernatural, from the railways of Europe to the pressing dark of the tube.

    Part of the British Library Tales of the Weird series.
