"Sue Johns takes us on an exhilarating journey riding the rails. Her trains carry us through time as well as space, from the ‘clattering iron’ of the early locomotives, to a day trip to Brighton in third class with a jug of tea, to a carriage full of Dutch Jews ‘in the airless dark’ steaming to an unknown destination. Her poems travel beyond their termini in their imaginings of other lives, of dreams unfulfilled, of daring excursions – often with great humour and bravado."
—Tamar Yoseloff, poet and lecturer
"Sue Johns’ new pamphlet gets you onboard from the very first line, and then continues to win you over, over and over again, with enthralling momentum. Daring, pin-sharp and technically assured, these poems are full of wit, story, atmosphere and invention - everything you could want for a thrilling ride."
— Amy Acre, poet and editor
