A young man is cut off from the family fortune and, with little better to do, jumps on a train. But as with many an Agatha Christie story, a train is never merely about the destination, the real interest lies in the passengers. The girl he meets there will change his life forever.
The story appeared in the UK collection The Listerdale Mystery in 1934, and was later published in the US in The Golden Ball and Other Stories (1971). It was adapted for TV in 1982 as part of the BBC series The Agatha Christie Hour.
