It's wintertime in Istanbul. The coldest month of the year. You are a detective in the middle of investigating the theft of a Turkish diamond, when a message arrives: there's another case that needs your immediate attention. Your boss has you booked on the first Overnight Express train out of town.
You arrive at the station at dusk. As you board your train, you can't help but take notes on your surroundings in your notebook. You meet your fellow passengers and all 5 of the train's small staff. You settle in. Night descends. The rumble of the train over the track lulls you to sleep, until..."HELP!" You wake to screams and tears: little Olivia Olive's doll has gone MISSING! The defenseless dolly has been kidnapped.
You know you've been rushing down the track at high speed for hours, making escape impossible. That means the doll--and her kidnapper--must still be somewhere on this train...

help with the first clue??
Find which fact is incorrect, like if Budapest is the capital of Hungary. Once you've identified the incorrect one, find what (for example) the capital of Hungary would be (if Budapest WASN'T the capital), and then search it with who gave you the wrong fact.
I don't understand the first clue
I can't find the last code. I searched the three things, but it showed nothing
final code showed for me without the numbers, just the doll's name and the culprit
Did you write the numbers without spaces? Try them with spaces between the month, day, and year.
search all there names: the engine driver, the porter, the maid, the conducter and the ticket taker with the ending and dessie
search the numbers as shown space dolls name space title of culprit
I have a bone to pick about continuity. It says that the doll was locked in the trunk, but it also says that it was with the little girl when she went to sleep, and other places. So was it all those places or locked up?!
continuity (hopefully) fixed!
hooray for made-up nonsense!
Similarly, I'm trying to figure out how they're supposed to travel to & from the dining car if the gangway connections are closed at 8! (since dinner is served at 8)
Second clue- I know who said the incorrect fact and what the correct fact is, but nothing comes up in the catalog search.
try searching the person who lied and then the actual country the capital is of
aaa, same! I browsed through all of the items in the country name search catalog, but not a single one worked. searching it with the name of the person who said it just gives me no results. :v
ok I just found out it was in the category of title only and I just found it,,,, continue with ur day
I’ve looked up the correct country for that capital and then tried the correct capital. Nothing works... Any suggestions?
- leave off the "the" in the lying person's name
- put just what's after the "the" in the search field, followed by the correct country
It took me a while, too, even with the hints here.
last clue doesn't work for me either. I have tried all the possible combinations, yet nothing
I was scratching my head until I realized I was searching for the wrong person (i was searching for person who knew the name of the doll; need to search for person who knows birthday). Once I had that insight I was able to find the catalog item.
Thanks! I was making the same mistake.
Need help with the 3rd clue!
Never mind, the story was revised.
Still stuck on second clue. Is it missing from the catalog?
I am stuck on the 2nd clue too. I have tried all kinds of combinations to no avail...help!!!
Try searching for the person followed by where the incorrect place should actually be.
I’m enjoying this series the best so far.
Me too, except I usually have to rely on the hint to figure out how to enter the relevant bits of info. I wish those were just in the clue - I suppose that's lazy of me!
me too! This is so much fun!
I'm really liking these badges too. Thank you game creator!
a little bit stuck on the last clue. some questions for those who've already gotten this badge: is it the last name of the culprit, the first, or both?
This was my absolute FAVOURITE library badge! I hope there are more like these!
Such a fun badge. I'm really loving these clue like badges.
I started this badge and didn't have time to finish and now I am unable to get back to my next unsolved clue. Is there a trick or a time limit to unlocking clues previously solved?
help me with the 3rd one
Figure out which two people saw the doll last, according to their statements.
This time keep the "the"s in their names, and write both, with "and" in the middle, in the catalog search field.
Looks like there's a typo in the hint for the 4th one: "Step 2: Search only or the right answer to the incorrect fact." That "or" should be a "for", maybe?
fourth clue says "Search only or the right answer". is this a typo?
For the last one, you don`t need to search for any numbers. Just name of the doll and the culprit.
