Those who sign up for the Strangers on a Train Murder Mystery will be an active sleuths in solving the mystery. A unique drama will unfold in, among and around us. Different scenes will happen in two or three separate train cars at the same, so you will only see the part of the plot that unfolds in front of you in your train car.

It will ALSO be a full and fun day where we go Round Trip from LA to San Diego for $70 with Including Three Hours in San Diego. And One Hour in Oceanside.

We will start out as Strangers on a Train. And end as some new and old friends. And have quite a ride of a Murder Mystery at the same time.

The THEME is Hippies/60's/Rock n Roll. COME IN COSTUME. Anything that paisley, or BoHo. Or even just wear a concert t-shirt. It gives us something so we can also recognize each-other.

You will interact with the other participants in the other coaches in San Diego and on the return, and piece together the other parts to figure out your guess of Whodunnit & Whydunnit.

If you guess ALL THREE correct you will win a FREE ticket to the next mystery train

Let me say this again (or for the first time): Vignettes will occur simultaneously in multiple places. It is possible to comprehend the whole story only if you communicate with other participants and collaborate info. After all, . . . it's a meetup!!!
