Thanks JSWolf and PeterT,
I downloaded a different book from the same library catalogue and that one read fine on my Kobo so I'm sure its a problem with the original file. I contacted the library to explain the problem with "Silesian Station" and they replied saying unfortunately they didn't have the resources or technical know how to look into it (understandable) so I suggested they contact there supplier as it may be a faulty file. We'll see.
The ISBN of the copy I got was 978-1-90696-449-8
