Writer Nat Segnit has always been fascinated by trains and people's stories. So, armed with an iPod recorder, Nat spent a year recording the stories of strange men on trains. The resulting interviews produce this six-part comedy drama to play out late at night.

Or at least that's how this comedy is presented. In fact, it's all made up. All of the encounters were conceived, developed in improvisation, scripted, rehearsed and then performed by the same actors Stewart Wright and Nat Segnit.
