Summary (From the publisher):

Arriving at Mugby Junction in an attempt to escape his unhappy past, a solitary traveller befriends a workman and his invalid daughter. With their help he sets his sights on discovering which of the seven lines of the junction will most aid him in his journey of escape. In exploring one such line, he meets 'the woman he had lost', only to return to Mugby Junction once this has played out. Staying there, and continuing his friendship with the workman and his daughter, he collects together the myriad stories he hears tell of at the junction.

Compiled by Charles Dickens, Mugby Junction is an intriguing composite of tales ranging from horror to a realistic portrayal of life around a bustling Victorian railway station. Published for the first time in its entirety, it contains one of Dickens's most celebrated ghost stories, "The Signalman".
