Ten top train stories

Kenneth Oppel is the author of many award-winning books, including The Boundless. One of his ten favorite train stories, as shared at the Guardian:
Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne

There are, of course, many enticing modes of transportation in this hectic novel, but one of my favourite sequences is the transcontinental train trip across the American West, complete with uncooperative bison, a rickety suspension bridge, and a Sioux Indian attack.
Read about another entry on the list.
