Mine harkens to my favorite author, prolific Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope. Trains feature in several of his books. ****SPOILER ALERT**** In "Barchester Towers," Mrs. Proudie and oleaginous preacher Mr. Slope attempt to stop train service on the Sabbath. (I'm glad to report that they fail.) In "Small House at Allington," good guy Johnny Eames punches out the caddish Adolphus Crosbie on the platform at a London station, probably Paddington. In "The Prime Minister," speculator Ferdinand Lopez commits suicide by throwing himself in front of a train.
If you like Dickens or Jane Austen, I can practically guarantee you'll enjoy Trollope.
