TRAIN DREAM                
     
                                       
                                         
                                         
                                          
                (SITUATION)               
                                          
 YOU   FIND  YOURSELF  IN  A  RIFT  -   A 
 CLEARING, NARROW BUT IMMEASURABLY LONG.  
 TO  YOUR SIDES ARE WALLS MADE  OF TREES, 
 THICK AND READY TO SWALLOW YOU.  THE SUN 
 IS NOWHERE TO  BE  SEEN,  BUT NONTHELESS 
 IT IS VERY BRIGHT - THE  AIR FEELS LIGHT 
            BLUE, ALMOST WHITE.           
                                          
 ALONG THE SPAN  OF THE CLEARING  LAY TWO 
     PARALLEL SILVERY LINES, DARK HARD    
 METAL.  SOMEHOW  YOU  CAN SEE  HOW HEAVY 
                THEY ARE.                 
                                          
 THEY  EMIT   A  HIGH  PITCHED   WHINE... 
                                          
                                         
                                     
                                         
                                          
                (SITUATION)               
                                          
 YOURE  AT   THE  TRAIN STATION,   ON   A 
 CATWALK ABOVE  THE RAILS. YOUR TRAIN  IS 
 LATE,  OR  YOU ARE LATE  TO  THE  TRAIN. 
 IT'S A SUMMER AFTERNOON  AND THE STATION 
 IS  BUSY,  FULL  OF  RELAXED CONFIDENCE. 
                                          
 YOU'RE IN HIGH  SPIRITS,  ALTHOUGH A BIT 
 STRESSED  ABOUT  THE TIME, WHILE  MOVING 
 UP  THE  STAIRS  TO  YOUR  PLATFORM. THE 
 STATION  IS  IN   SEVERAL  LEVELS,   ALL 
      PLACED WITHIN EACHOTHER BY SOME     
    INTELLIGENT DESIGNER, AND FULL OF     
       STAIRS, ELEVATORS, SHORTCUTS,      
 BAZAARS... YOU  SIGHT YOUR TRAIN THROUGH 
 SOME  GLASS  WINDOWS.  IT'S... NOT WHERE 
           IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE?           
                                          
                                         
                                     
                                         
                                          
               (SITUATION)                
                                          
 YOU'RE  FINALLY ENTERING THE CITY. WHILE 
 IT  IS  INDEED A VERY HIGH  SPEED  TRAIN 
 YOU'RE  TRAVELING  IN,  THE  JOURNEY HAS 
 BEEN  LONG.  BUT  IT'S   ABOUT  TO  END! 
                                          
 SOCIETY  IS  GROWING DENSER AROUND  YOU, 
 THROUGH THE WINDOWS YOU  SEE FIRST SMALL 
 SHACKS,  BUILT OF METAL AND STONE,  THEN 
 PROPER HOUSES WITH MORTAR  TO  KEEP THEM 
 TOGETHER...  WHO IN TURN  MAKE  WAY  FOR 
    THE INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS, THE URBAN   
      MAZE, PROTECTIVE WALLS, JUNGLE      
                NETWORK...                
                                          
 THE TRACKS  LEAVE THE GROUND,  WHICH  IS 
 NEEDED  FOR  OTHER  PURPOSES.  YOU   ARE 
   CARRIED GENTLY, CURVING UPWARDS UNTIL  
 YOU'RE MOVING UPWARD ALONG THE  WALL  OF 
 A  BUILDING. IT'S  MADE OF SLABBY STONE, 
     WITH GREAT GLASSLESS WINDOW HOLES    
 LOOKING OUT  THE  WAY  YOU CAME.  IT  IS 
            PITCH BLACK INSIDE.
