"Galloping Foxley" is a short story by [Roald Dahl] that first appeared in the 1953 collection [Someone Like You].
The story is about an older man, Perkins, whose daily commute to London is suddenly no longer enjoyable because a new man is intruding. Eventually, Perkins concludes that the new man is Foxley, a senior boy who victimized him in his youth, at boarding school. After a morning spent in recollection of his time spent suffering under Foxley, he goes over and introduces himself, hoping to see Foxley's reaction. It turns out that the new man on the train is not Foxley, but in fact, another, younger man. [Category:Short Stories]
