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

The Platform Edge is a collection of the greatest stories of strange happenings on the tracks. In this express service to the unknown, phantom passengers join the jostling of the daily commute, a subway car disappears into another dimension without a trace, while a tragic derailment on a lonely hillside in the Alps torments the locals with its horrifying nightly repetition. From the open railways of Europe and America to the pressing dark of the London Underground, The Platform Edge is the perfect traveling companion for unforgettable journeys into the supernatural.
