‘Roll up! Roll up! Discworld’s first steam engine is scheduled for arrival at the Ankh-Morpork terminus on 7th November.
Customers who wish to hear more of this great undertaking, the greatest innovation of the Century of the Anchovy, are invited to attend the ticket office weekly from 5th September. Tickets will be dispensed from our patented ticket machine, which harnesses the strength of live steam.
To power this admirable enterprise, customers are encourage to ‘raise steam’ by Liking, Commenting on or Sharing wall posts at facebook.com/pratchett or by Tweeting #terrypratchett, #pratchett or #raisingsteam. Only when sufficient steam has been raised can the ticket machine perform its function.
New tickets will become available on a weekly basis between 5th September and 31st October.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Ankh-Morpork Station Master.’
UPDATE: Thanks to your generous efforts, sufficient steam has now been raised to reveal to you a partial passenger list for this momentous journey.
This list can be viewed here.
Customers are encouraged to continue with their social engagements. Further announcements will be made in due course.
