    LipService go off the rails as they return to the Corn Exchange with this comedy thriller.

    But this is no ordinary train. Each passenger is reading a book; each book is a portal into a parallel universe of train related crime fiction.

    With clever use of projection and multiple train sets, LipService give you a whistle-stop tour that will leave you breathless and racing for the refreshment coach.
