What you need to know before your trail

Platform Seven at 4am: Peterborough Railway Station is deserted. The man crossing the covered walkway on this freezing November morning is confident he’s alone. As he sits on the metal bench at the far end of the platform it is clear his choice is strategic – he’s as far away from the night staff as he can get.

What the man doesn’t realise is that he has company. Lisa Evans knows what he has decided. She knows what he is about to do as she tries and fails to stop him walking to the platform edge.


Travel Guide

A ghostly experience set in Peterborough Railway station

There is the ghost of a girl killed by a train on Platform Seven who has stayed behind in the station. She is trapped there and so spends her time watching, observing and commenting on the comings and going of passengers and staff.

One morning a man at the end of the platform falls in front of a train. This brings back memories for the girl who died and is now the ghost. No locations as such as it’s largely set in the station. This novel however is about journeys in general, comings and goings, life moving on and pushing back, delays, stuck on the platform and life questions.
