The Armchair Treasure Hunt Club
Search for the Lost Railway Engine

Search for the Lost Railway Engine was first published in 1989 and was a treasure hunting book with several riddles to be solved. The closing date for entries was in June 1992 and no completely correct answers were received. The hunt was written and illustrated by Pauline Bane and the late Steve Bane. The unclaimed prize of a golden engine has been donated to The British Heart Foundation with a view to it being auctioned.

Pauline says on her website:

Anyone who enjoyed the book is invited to make a donation direct to the Intensive Care Unit at Weston-super-Mare General Hospital, Grange Road, Uphill, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England - it would be much appreciated. (Cheques should be made payable to the Weston Area Health Trust and your letter should make it clear that the donation is for Intensive Care - thank you).

Pauline Bane has published the full solution on her website.
