The time is almost near for our newly-appointed queen to arrive, and all of you will die. Thank you for riding MTA. Train passengers in New York are terrorized by supernatural entities. Follow the adventures of Ariel, Rick, Lois, Autumn, Jim, and many others as their lives become crazier as all the mysteries are unraveled. Train is based on the Love Train web series and Delilah spinoff. Excerpt: Pandora, an undeniable beauty, was walking back to her building in the Bronx. She just got off the 2 train, and she was tired from working the night shift as a nurse. She felt like someone was following her, but no one was behind her. She entered her apartment and went directly into the kitchen. She opened the refrigerator and grabbed a strawberry from the basket. She ate it, feeling so divine. Ever since she was a little girl, this woman loved strawberries. She grabbed another one and ate it, enjoying it like it was almost orgasmic. A woman´s voice said, ´´I love strawberries too.´´ Pandora jumped, closed the refrigerator, and turned around. A black mist attacked her. The black mist separated into two, covering her nose and her mouth. Pandora couldn´t breathe. She tried to remove the films, but she couldn´t. She fell to the floor, suffocated, and died. Then, Pandora´s dead body levitated. Minutes later, there were two Pandoras in the apartment, the dead one on the floor and the naked one standing over her. The naked one thought about clothes, and clothes appeared on her. She was dressed like it was her birthday. She left the apartment but not by using the door. She disappeared. Her name was Delilah. Thirty minutes later, a tired businessman was waiting for the downtown train at Fordham Road. Some footsteps away, without him knowing, Delilah appeared and walked over to him. She offered him a strawberry that appeared out of nowhere. ´´Nice magic trick,´´ the businessman was impressed. ´´Eat.´´ Delila... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ian Bradford Ngongotaha Pugh.

From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids: an unforgettable odyssey of a legendary artist told through the prism of the cafés and haunts she has worked in around the world. It is a book Patti Smith has described as ´´a road map to my life´´. M Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village café where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo´s Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer´s society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York´s Far Rockaway, which Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima. Woven throughout are reflections on the writer´s craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith´s life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith. Braiding despair with hope and consolation, M Train is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature, and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable multiplatform artists at work today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patti Smith.

In Patricia Highsmith´s debut novel, we encounter Guy Haines and Charles Anthony Bruno, passengers on the same train. But while Guy is a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, Bruno turns out to be a sadistic psychopath who manipulates Guy into swapping murders with him. As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy is trapped in Highsmith´s perilous world - where, under the right circumstances, anybody is capable of murder. The inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock´s classic 1951 film, Strangers on a Train launched Highsmith on a prolific career of noir fiction and proved her mastery of depicting the unsettling forces that tremble beneath the surface of everyday contemporary life. 1.

Meet Traci the Train! A friendly, positive and loveable locomotive steam engine! Through the years, she´s served the tracks of West Cheddar well, carrying children from one place to another while always putting smiles on everyone´s faces. Traci is the nicest and kindest steam engine there is, but not everything is going poor Traci´s way. The newer and shinier trains are becoming popular and are being used more. Those trains are both faster and bigger, meaning that there isn´t much room left for poor old Traci anymore. However, Traci is strong, and even though a lot of the old steam engines are starting to be used for scrap metal, she is able to stay positive and remain happy with the help of your child and her other friends. A young passenger (your child) doesn´t give up on Traci and gives her the support and encouragement she needs. One day one of the bigger, newer, shinier trains takes a tumble on the tracks and needs some help. But none of the bigger trains can reach him because they´re just too big themselves. So the question is...Who can reach the stranded train and save the day? If only there was a positive, friendly, smaller, lovable locomotive. Oh wait, there is! 1. Language: English.
