A campaign game of the new Horror on the Orient Express would be awesome...

Seems to be just a reprint of the original with a new chapter tacked on. A really innovative campaign although some of the support material that came with it was a bit awkward ( I still have some bits kicking around).
Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall.

There are a lot of changes:

"This is a re-imagining of the original campaign, with an expanded roster of NPCs and new chapters and revisions by the original authors. The booklets will have improved card stock covers, will feature additional art, and the handouts will be expanded to include a matchbox, similar to the one included in our very first boxed campaign Masks of Nyarlathotep in 1984."

includes:

The 4-book scenario collection

4 blank passports for your players' characters

Vintage-looking stickers

Fold out posters of the layout of the Orient Express train cars

Newspaper handouts

A book of other handouts

Orient Express Matchbox (Because of pesky rules regarding incendiary items, the matchbox may be filled with toothpicks.)

"we will have all train-car diagrams fashionably re-rendered and exquisitely reproduced at 25mm scale"

"An Alternate Ending to give you the option of finishing the campaign early, in Istanbul; and a Campaign Survival Guide containing rules and suggestions for keeping the story going through this infamously lethal campaign."

"We are upgrading the quality of maps and handouts, and have added a color map of the Orient Express System."

Mark Morrison posted something about it on facebook quite recently, it looks pretty good. Maybe when we finish the current campaign we can give it a go?
