    Ings has borrowed from him but now owes nothing. All Nicholas sees is just a harmless comedy that is not going to have real devils come to life, just a pair of actors that are great tumblers. Security was non-existent and the robbers in each case climbed out of their own carriage into the mail van and back. In the second book, when Madeleine begins to seriously pursue her hobby of locomotive artworks, the Lord of the Isles is her first subject. Mayne is the only real person who plays an active part in the novel.

    It's just bloody lazy. He studied the subject of Modern History at Oxford and then lectured the subject for three years. He unwittingly mentioned the transfer of gold to Ings who advised the robbers. Essentially, Colbeck just knows. This is followed by an explosion in a rail tunnel and then two murders.

    The driver of the train and other support staffs get injured in the process. The next yearthe year of the Spanish Armada is a scary time; there is a lot of terror and triumph going on, for all of England not just the court or the queen. Colbeck is concerned about the unnecessary destruction of the steam engine after the robbery and believes he is looking for someone with influence who hates the railways. In the course of investigating the crime Colbeck discovers that the victim was driven to suicide by the murder of his wife.
