Lori has gathered the greatest minds in mystery to solve a century-old secret and the haunted train is their best clue. The luxurious train once belonged to Jake Hurley, who set out long ago to find the mother lode during mining mania. Shortly after the trip began, Jake's wife, Camille met an untimely end. Although her death broke his heart, Jake pressed on in his search for riches. Years later, Jake's train was found in Blue Moon Canyon with the engineer slumped over in the car - dead.

  1. An entry in the series that long-time fans will love. Despite its serious lack of background music, the game delivers strong in so many ways that you will look over any of the weak puzzles and enjoy another outing with Nancy, the Hardys, and the usual collection of goofy and humorous characters (even a recurring character from a previous mystery!), accompanied by dialogue that’s more crisp and witty than it has been in a while.
  2. As it is, my enjoyment was tempered by a concern that the production crew is losing focus on what makes the games work. Though I remain a fan of the series, and am giving Train a Thumb Up, I am hopeful that Her Interactive will proceed with care in tampering with a formula that has, so far, served them well.
  3. It's always fun to play adventure games where a teenage girl is the hero. You can guess that I enjoy them a lot as I'm still playing them four years on. My only concern would be the ending, as all of the story didn't seem to quite tie up.
  4. A very good game overall. It could have used more interesting mini-games for replayability, and also more educational trivia, but the game itself is a hoot to play and will involve the whole family in the mystery. Much better than the last game, "The Secret of the Old Clock."
  5. These puzzles are varied, logical, and make sense in the train's historical context, and there is something simply enjoyable about investigating the different characters and piecing together clues to the mystery of both Lori Girard's disappearance and Jake's old mine.
  6. Most of the game is set on a moving train, ensuring the locations are very limited but your fellow travellers are intriguing.
