The Galaxy Railways: A Letter from the Abandoned Planet is a 2007 OVA sequel to 2003 TV series The Galaxy Railways which, itself was a spinoff of Leiji Matsumoto’s Galaxy Express 999. Hideaki Oba (Genesis Surviver Gaiarth) directed the project at studio Planet, with Yasuyuki Muto (Afro Samurai, Deadman Wonderland) writing the screenplay.

Crunchyroll describes the series as:

In the distant future, the planets are now connected with a massive galactic railway system. The Galaxy Express 999 has crash landed on a mysterious planet. On board are The Conductor, Killian, Maetel, and Tetsuro, a ten year-old street urchin with a heart of gold. Now it’s up to the SDF Sirius Platoon to rescue them before the Herise Time Mystery—a rift in the deep axis of time and space—repeats.
