 The 'Disappearing' Train, A Small Overview if a strange train

The Night Foreman at Marylebone saw it again last night.

He saw a train, but who knows how it got there. No train had been moved, and it was a steamer, he'd have noticed.

The engine at front was a Castle, in front of a train of 'Western' coaches. On his first night, the watchman thought it was a special, but he knew it wasn't now.

The only other person on the platform his 14 year old neighbour, Ed Waters. He stepped aboard, shutting the door behind him.

A shrill whistle filled the night air, and the Castle puffed into distance, fading into the fog.

Ed Waters was reported missing the next morning.



THE TRUTH

So what is that train? The fact is simple...it is not a simple thing to get round.

Ed Waters, for example, is alive and well, as are the many others on board.

The train does its runs in shifts. Starting from London, in the quieter station of Marylebone, it 'fades' its way across Britain, the US, Australia and Canada. Similarly, an SNCF loco does the French, German and rest of Europe and Africa, whilst a Baldwin does the Central and South bits of the Americas.

After the three trains finish 'fading', they run on thier own lines to thier own bases.

They go to the Towns of Mystery.


THE CASTLE ROUTE

This was intended to explain the Castle. The rest are very different, and the Castle runs the most understandable.

The Lava Lakes are perilous. The driver and fireman have to keep up good steam or the hot lakes will cook the engine in minutes.

The Mountains are beuitiful. The driver and fireman don't get time to enjoy the view, or the mystic creatures, they have to keep a good lot of steam. The fireman must shovel a ton of coal every 20 miles (not a popular job). Although it is beuitful, the fireman must also be handy with the shovel, especially at night. Many a driver and fireman have been bitten by a werewolf.

From then, its all relaxing work for the fireman. He gets to laugh at the driver, who has difficulty keeping the engine at right speed down the cliffs.


TOWN OF MYSTERY

This train is not boarded lightly. Its a one-way ticket. From the Town of Mystery, the passenger must go to one of the following; Village of Time, Village of Elements or Village of Space, depending on the type of power the person has. (Hence why the foreman has been unsuccessful in getting on board to inspect.) From here on, no-one can say. Its all up to the passenger. Like I said, you don't move here lightly.
