probably wouldnšt remember the first time they saw a train. But Gus
does... Alright he couldnšt actually see the train - he was in his
pram at the time - it was more the feel of it. The feel of itšs presence.
But he remembers it alright. It was the moment his life changed forever.
Gus Gascoigne is a trainspotter. He has a one-track mind and a simple mission - to spot every train in England.
Hešs not alone - there are half
a million spotters in England, although few of them are as good or as
dedicated as Gus. Hešs a career spotter, a true believer and hešll do
whatever it takes to get a good view of the track. Even if it means lying
to his mum and staying up really, really late. Outside. In the Dark. By
Gus Gascoigne, the James Bond of trainspotting, invites you to take a
roller coaster journey in the front carriage of his train obsessed world.
From those carefree kindergarten days, bunking off early to watch the
trains go by, to his epiphany at Crewe station at the age of seven; from
his adventures in later years, including a spotting duel with his arch
enemy Eric Spate of the notorious Manchester Maf, to his exposé of the
intrigue surrounding the Great Illegal Nuclear Waste Transport Scandal
(even the Young Liberals were interested!). Therešs romance too...though
