Enjoy Hercule Poirot working through the glamorous suspects in Murder on the Orient Express? Remember Sean Connery fighting Robert Shaw in one of its compartments? Heard the (true) story of the unsolved death of an American attaché on the same train? Then join us as historical novelist and train traveller Robert Wilton takes us a journey through some of the best stories, and an exploration of why trains have always been such a focus for excitement – in fact as well as in fiction.
I hope this talk, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home, will be of interest to you.
