AUTONOMOUS RAILMAKERS WILL NOTICE     
  WILDLIFE IN THEIR PATH AND STOP,      
  
 SOUND   A  HORN,   NUDGE  THE  ANIMAL  A 
 LITTLE,  BUT  ULTIMATELY  WAIT  IT  OUT. 
 ALTHOUGH  THEY WILL  LOG VIDEO,  NO CALL 
 WILL   BE    MADE    FOR   ANY   OUTSIDE 
      ASSISTANCE. THIS IS VERY GOOD.      
                                          
  THE RAILMAKERS ARE SIEMENS-MANUFACTURED 
 BRICK-LIKE  THINGS.  FIELDS OF  GRAY AND 
     TEAL, FLOODLIGHTS, THRUMMING AND     
 HISSING.  TRILLING TO  EACH  OTHER, LIKE 
 LANGUAGE.  AND  HERE,  THREE   OF  THEM, 
 SLOWLY  MAKING  THEIR  WAY  THROUGH  THE 
               DENSE FOREST.              
                                          
 I'M COMING  UP ON THEM FROM  BEHIND  AND 
 TO  THE LEFT,  HIDDEN  BEHIND THE  THICK 
 FOLIAGE.  THEIR  LIGHT  FINDS  THE  GAPS 
     BETWEEN THE LEAVES, CASTING RAYS     
 THROUGH THE  WET  AIR, PLAYING  OVER  MY 
 FACE AND  ARMS, AND MY WEAPON. I QUICKLY 
 OVERTAKE THEM, CROUCH  IN THE DITCH MADE 
 BY THE  PREPROCESSOR, AND WATCH.  ONE OF 
 THEM  IS   ALREADY   A  BIT  BEHIND  THE 
 OTHERS.   IT    WILL   BE   MY   TARGET. 
                                          
 JUST AS THE LIGHT OF THE LEADING TWO  IS 
 DIMMING, I  DEPLOY THE RABBITS, THROWING 
 THEM  IN  THE  PATH  OF  MY   PREY.  THE 
 CREATURES  ARE YET ALIVE, BUT MAIMED  SO 
 AS  TO  BE UNABLE TO  MOVE  -  THEY WILL 
 STAY  IN  THE  PATH  OF  THE  RAILMAKER, 
 FORCING  IT TO PAUSE, FURTHER SEPARATING 
         IT FROM ITS TWO FRIENDS.         
                                          
                                          
  
  ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE MACHINES:     
  THERE'S FLESH INSIDE THEM.  
  NOT MEAT, 
 BUT  SOMETHING  LIKE A LIVER, THAT  WILL 
  KEEP THE RAILMAKERS INTERNAL CHEMISTRY  
 WELL  AWAY  FROM THEIR VARIOUS EXHAUSTS. 
                                          
 A LIVER THAT, AS LONG  AS  YOU MANAGE TO 
 KEEP  IT  ALIVE,  CAN  CLEAN  THE  CREEK 
 WATER ENOUGH FOR  IT  TO  BE  DRINKABLE. 
                                          
          WHICH IS WHY I'M HERE.
