    Totally made me want to take an overnight train ride when I was little. Adult-me was screaming "Bad ghost writer!! Forgot canon!" because this is their first time on a moving train, even though they lived in a boxcar. Which totally ignores the Caboose Mystery, book number 11, where they sleep on a train for a week...even if it's not a passenger train. But then again, I shouldn't have been surprised because of all the continuity errors in other books. Totally made me want to take an overnight train ride when I was little.

    My son and I enjoyed the setting of this story much more than the plot. Since none of us have ever been on an overnight train, it was a good insight as to what the ride would be like, and how the trains are laid out, and how often they stop. The plot itself (movie posters being protected by a girl, and then having them stolen) was not very interesting, and Annie was very one-dimensional and unlikable. It was obvious she was only using the Boxcar Children most of the time. I hope the characters i My son and I enjoyed the setting of this story much more than the plot.

    One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

    The book itself is just another stock "created by" Boxcar Children mystery, but it's the reason I've always wanted to go on a cross-country train trip.
