Mark Maier's comedy is more an emotional roller coaster, less an intercity train journey. For starters, most of the staff can't square up to the job. They're suffering the torments of unrequited love - for each other...

Ticket-inspector Robin's marriage has fallen apart and, in a horribly doomed last-ditch scramble, he's staking all on Nadine, the restaurant-car chef who is scarcely aware Robin exists. Nadine is besotted with rogue-ish buffet-car manager Carl, who is completely in love with himself. Robin, in turn, ignores the forlorn flirtations from dippy trolley-attendant Carol.
