High Speed Train

Train Wrecking as a Hobby

The special Trains Issue of The Drink Tank is out, including my story, "The Day I (Almost) Wrecked a Train."

A couple things that have come up since I submitted the story:

  • There's a word missing in the last paragraph of the second column of page 19. It should read, "We didn't have to move the tram very far...." That one is my fault, not Chris'.

  • Lisa wasn't driving the electric locomotive. She was standing on the locomotive's outer platform serving as a lookout for the driver, whose view of the tram we were trying to re-rail was blocked at certain angles

I'm glad Chris was delayed a few days on this issue and that inspiration struck during WFC, and that I had enough time in the Press Office to write the story, because I would have felt very sad if I of all people had missed the Train Issue.
