Shortlisted for the UKLA 2016 Book Award in the 7 - 11 year old category.

A tremendous adventure unfolds across the vast emptiness of Canada being opened up by explorers in the 1880s. William Everett knows all about the railway from his father who has been working on it for years. Waiting to meet him on an empty station – Mile 2553 – William meets an attractive young circus performer before being swept up onto an amazing train and into a journey of a lifetime. There is a dazzling cast of characters, some seriously derailing incidents and glorious countryside all to be encountered on this rollercoaster journey of a lifetime.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Will is aboard the Boundless – a train with 987 carriages, including a theatre, cinema and circus. But, there is a dangerous threat. Can Will prevent Brogan and his gang from carrying out a brutal robbery? This thrilling story, full of adventure and fantasy, is ingenious and engrossing.
~ Andrea Rayner
