The Train Lover's Puzzle Book

Time for a little challenge:

1. Her worldly wealth (she was suspicious of banks)

2. Two four year-old children (she was taking them to school)

3. Reggie and Alma, her two pet dogs (she was aware dogs were not allowed on trains)

The power... the speed... the journey...

Train travel is exciting and the stuff of memories. Whether in whisking you away on holiday, allowing you to admire magnificent scenery, take you to a particular destination or perhaps enjoy a heritage line, train travel is special.

The Train Lover’s Puzzle Book allows you to enjoy trains in another way. From mystery sudokus, word searches, train tracks, riddles or deliberating on what really happened in strange but true incidents, there is much to delight and puzzle over. Also you do not need to be an expert to tackle the puzzles – just an interest in trains and willingness to rise to the challenge and enjoy the journey.
