‘Station to Station is the chronicle of a railway journey like no other – part personal odyssey, part history, part architectural guide, part reflection on the nature of travel, part investigation of the national psyche’. The Independent
‘Attlee is fascinated by the mystical way in which the past concertinas into the present… All human life is here, one ghost interweaving with another’. Craig Brown, the Mail on Sunday
‘Attlee mines fascinating stories from the landscape, rattling off anecdotes about characters as diverse as Oscar Wilde, Diana Dors and T.E. Lawrence – tales that will keep me company on this journey forever more’. www.worldtravelguide.net

‘Orphan Train is the musical side-project of Oxford-based author James Attlee (Isolarion, Nocturne and Station to Station) and features musicians from Oxford, London and Paris. The songs are noir-ish and atmospheric, drawing on rockabilly, soul and funk influences to paint a picture of the heartbreak and romance of a world on the tracks’.
