Five Train Stories Worth Riding

Recently, I was a guest blogger on C.M. Mayo’s popular writing blog, Madam Mayo. I was invited to write about five train stories—a list including both movies and books.

As I wrote for the post: “The train is a wonderful setting for a story. Trains are mysterious, exciting, and always in motion, the setting virtually unset. Strangers on a train are placed side by side to share a journey into the unknown, and in many cases, by the end of the line they are no longer strangers. Movies, novels, stories; adventures, comedies, mysteries—genres and themes as diverse as the passengers on a train. There are hundreds, but here are five train stories worth riding.”

What are the five train stories included in the post? You may know some; others may surprise you. Check them out at http://madammayo.blogspot.com/2011/07/guest-blogger-eric-d-goodman-5-train.html.

Hola Eric, Thanks for the mention. It was a delight to run your guest-blog post at "Madam Mayo." Trains really do run through so many works of the imagination, as you so eloquently pointed out. Good wishes to you!
