Off The Rails is a forgotten (read: entirely made up) 70s sitcom following the ridiculous antics and high jinks of the staff on a passenger train. As players, you take on the roles of the lead characters who must contend with a variety of improbable problems and do whatever they can to keep things under control and make sure this train doesn't go Off The Rails!

Set aside an hour or so and dust off some classic plots, wheel out the trope characters, and prepare to jump some sharks… 

The game is available in pdf, word document and ebook formats. It is a GM-less game for 3-6 players that needs just one dice, a deck of cards and around 60-90 minutes to play, depending on how ridiculous you're going with it.

Could probably have been used to create recent radio comedy series 'The Train at Platform 4' -


ha, I didn't realise this existed! (the initial version of the game came about due to a friend who loves trains joking that I'd never made a game about them, and me rising to the bait)
