Before there was a Temple there was a Phantom Train, 15 June 2009
Author: Shawn Watson from The Penumbra

Indy and Remy accidentally board the wrong train on their way to their next assignment. Once they realize their mistake they board another wrong train when trying to make their way back. Now hopelessly lost and facing the firing squad as deserters they encounter a group of old soldiers out in the African desert. For the time being their new mission is to take out a mysterious vanishing train with a massive cannon attached to it.

Phantom Train is certainly the fastest moving Young Indy adventure so far and there's never a dull moment in it. The second half is especially good as Indy and Remy kidnap Colonel Lettow-Vorbeck and hoist him away in a hot air balloon. The action scenes in this adventure are, for a change, up to the standard of the movies.

Though I am not sure of Paul Freeman as Frederick Selous (the real life inspiration for H. Rider Haggard's Allan Quatermain character). Why they cast the man who so famously played Indy's sleazy rival in Raiders to play a different person is beyond me. How great would it have been for Beloq to challenge Young Indy? His role as Selous here is bigger than the brief appearance he made in Passion for Life.

I can only hope that the rest will be this entertaining.
