The legend of the Orient Express has it that in 1923 a man committed suicide in one of the luxury train’s compartments by shooting himself in the head. He had apparently been working for a diamond firm in Amsterdam and had stolen a package of diamonds. He boarded the Orient Express to escape to Brussels. At Wurzburg he was said to have been warned by an unknown female that he had been found out and that he would soon be arrested. Shortly after the train left Wurzburg Station he killed himself, his body being removed at the next stop.
Investigator Harry Price used the train, unaware of this story and of the fact that he was sleeping in the very same compart ment. Near Würzburg he heard the sound of a pistol shot and felt that he was not alone. The train attendant admitted somewhat reluctantly that the compartment Price had been in had been the subject of ‘complaints’ before. Essex | Marin Govin | Sussex | West Midlands |
