During 1963, as the radical reformation of Britain's railways threatens isolated communities, the New Forest Corkscrew Line falls victim to 'progress'. As he grapples with the closure of Silver Street Station, Porter Sam Smart's growing conviction that his Station Master is using events to 'line his own pockets' must be investigated. When the devastating effect on the local community is revealed, Sam enlists the help of teacher Ellen Armitage as he begins to unravel a sixty year old mystery, which may link Silver Street to an antique tin trunk. As shy bachelor Sam fights the impulse to fall in love, he must also discover why he hears the haunting call of a lost steam locomotive, and find out what has the parcel discovered in a hidden Lost Property office got to do with the wartime history of a redundant railway station? A maze of secrets slowly unfold, then the Australian arrives in search of his roots. Now Sam must consider what Alex Ford has to do with Padways Manor and how can he be connected with a train constantly searching for its "Last Passenger."

Live tests of emergency evacuation of transport aircraft are becoming increasingly expensive as the planes grow to a size seating hundreds of passengers. Repeated tests, to cope with random variations, increase these costs, as well as risks of injuries to participants. A method of simulating such repeated tests, by use of computer models based on statistics from measured components of the escape path, has been developed. The models utilize GPSS, a computer programming language, to represent various features of the escape process: passenger mix, seating and exit configuration, door-opening delay, time on the escape slide, and slide capacity.

This is a story of a scarcely credible abundance, of flocks of birds so vast they made the sky invisible. It is also a story of a collapse into extinction so startling as to provoke a mystery. In the fate of the North American passenger pigeon we can read much of the story of wild America—the astonishment that accompanied its discovery, the allure of its natural “productions” the ruthless exploitation of its “commodities” and the ultimate betrayal of its peculiar genius. And in the bird’s fate can be read, too, the essential vulnerability of species, the unpredictable passage of life itself.

From bestselling author Charles Finch comes the third and final in a prequel trilogy to his lauded Charles Lenox series. In the third and final installment of Charles Finch's bestselling and lavishly praised trilogy of prequels to his beloved series of Victorian mystery novels, the author gives his detective, a young and eager Charles Lenox, his toughest case yet: a murder without a single clue. Slumped in a first-class car at Paddington Station is the body of a young, handsome gentleman. He has no luggage, empty pockets, and no sign of violence upon his person - yet Lenox knows instantly that it's not a natural death. Pursuing the investigation against the wishes of Scotland Yard, the detective encounters every obstacle London in 1855 has to offer, from obstinate royalty to class prejudice to the intense grief of his closest friend. Written in Charles Finch's unmistakably warm, witty, and winning voice, The Last Passenger is a cunning and deeply satisfying conclusion to the journey begun in The Woman in the Water and The Vanishing Man.

September 1st, 2014 marked the centenary of one of the best-documented extinctions in history – the demise of the Passenger Pigeon. From being the commonest bird on the planet 50 years earlier, the species became extinct on that fateful day, with the death in Cincinnati Zoo of Martha – the last of her kind. This book tells the tale of the Passenger Pigeon, and of Martha, and of author Mark Avery's journey in search of them. It looks at how the species was a cornerstone of the now much-diminished ecology of the eastern United States, and how the species went from a population that numbered in the billions to nil in a terrifyingly brief period of time. It also explores the largely untold story of the ecological annihilation of this part of America in the latter half of the 19th century, a time that saw an unprecedented loss of natural beauty and richness as forests were felled and the prairies were ploughed, with wildlife slaughtered more or less indiscriminately. Despite the underlying theme of loss, this book is more than another depressing tale of human greed and ecological stupidity. It contains an underlying message – that we need to re-forge our relationship with the natural world on which we depend, and plan a more sustainable future. Otherwise more species will go the way of the Passenger Pigeon. We should listen to the message from Martha.
