Baccano! Wiki

1931 The Grand Punk Railroad: Express (1931 Tokkyūhen The Grand Punk Railroad 1931 特急編 The Grand Punk Railroad) is the third volume of the Baccano! light novel series and the second entry in the 1931 arc.


The year is 1931. A boy boards a train to visit his friend in New York. A woman in a jumpsuit boards a train to meet her employer in New York. And the conductor? He boards because it's his job. If it had been any other day, they all would have gotten where they were going just fine. But it's not any other day. The Rail Tracer is on the hunt. The gonzo tale of gangsters, immortals, and outrageous luck (both bad and good) speeds into its third volume![1]
