This volume of 3 Detectives has a railway theme, with mystery short stories from the early 1900s and a newspaper serial novel from the 1930s.
'The Investigations of Godfrey Page, Railwayac' (Victor L. Whitechurch, 1903-1904): Godfrey Page is a ‘railway maniac,’ or railwayac, whose detailed knowledge of every aspect of the British rail system gives him an edge in solving puzzling mysteries: murder, theft, smuggling, and anything else that involves the railroad.
'The Railway Adventures of Sir Jasper Buckland' (Guy Thorne, 1916-1918): Sir Jasper Buckland worked his way up the ranks of the Great Union Railway, spending many years as a railway detective. These stories collect his adventures in solving mysteries and fighting crime on the rails. A few are adventure tales, one supernatural. He solves the mystery of a disappearing special, the kidnapping of a wealthy American railway magnate, and the murders of several passengers on a lonely stretch of track . . .
'The Mystery of the Private Car' (Edwin D. Torgerson, 1933): Millionaire J. Proctor Milburn has been hosting a rolling party in his private car, heading north from New York to Canada, but suddenly comes to the conclusion that his ‘friends’ (show girls and hangers-on) are simply leeches draining what they can from his vast fortune. This doesn’t sit well, and it isn’t long before the Canadian police are investigating the murder of poor Mr. Milburn.
