Spanish Train and Other Stories is the second album by Chris de Burgh, released by A&M Records in 1975. Releases in some markets, like in North America, used different cover art than those in Europe. Rather than the simple white-on-black text of the European releases, the North American releases depicted an image of a train speeding through an evening sky.
