SO it's Moist book (sorry if I'm late to the party with this!). I await with some trepidation. Discworld plus steam trains is the kind of combination almost guaranteed to make me melt with the sheer force of my glee. But though I love Going Postal with a fiery passion, I didn't like Making Money much so I've yet to be convinced Moist can carry another book...

That is, "Controller" might be equivalent to "Comptroller". Whatever it turns out to be, I'll be going along for the ride.
