For more than five decades, the spirit of E. M. Frimbo chugged through the pages of The New Yorker, chronicling adventures on rails broad and narrow around the world. This greatly expanded edition of All Aboard with E. M. Frimbo combines all thirty-three of the Frimbo pieces published to great acclaim in 1974 with twenty-one previously uncollected articles, chosen by the intrepid traveler's friend and amanuensis, Tony Hiss. Here, for the first time in book form, are The Old Curmudgeon's search for lost Louis Sullivan masterpieces in Manhattan, and a journey through Wales to the ninteenth-century village immortalized in the futuristic television series The Prisoner. Other articles record Frimbo's special honors, such as the christening of a restored vintage coach in his name, and a final tribute to him, appropriately mounted at Cumbres Pass, the highest elevation reached by passenger trains in the United States.
