Baddiel’s train stories

Virgin Trains has launched its first-of-a-kind children’s story, The Girl Who Had Never Been On a Train, written by comedian and award-winning children’s author David Baddiel in his role as the company’s Summer Author. The story has been brought to life by illustrator Jim Field. It looks into the life of communities along the East Coast line, including those at Alnmouth. The Girl Who Had Never Been On a Train tells the tale of 11-year-old Chrissie, who loves trains, but Chrissie has yet to travel on one. It is the first exclusive commission for BEAM, Virgin Trains’ free on-board content platform.
