A crowded train takes a wrong turn and hurtles at full speed into a section of track that should have been closed for repair. Among the passengers is the writer Charles Dickens. Can young workman Tommy stop the train in time and save the lives of those on board - or is it already too late?

In this dramatic re-telling of one of the worst rail accidents in Victorian Britain, the Staplehurst Railway disaster, Terry Deary's Victorian Tales explore the fascinating world of the Victorians, including many of the incredible achievements and breakthroughs that took place, through the eyes of children who could have lived at the time. This new edition features notes for the reader to help extend learning and exploration of the historical period.
