For years after the cataclysm, I followed the tracks from city to city, finding no one else alive, and in my despair I determined to end it all.
When it appeared out of the mist one morning, chugging along behind me like a lost puppy needing love, I worried that madness and my love of trains had conspired to provide me with the companionship I craved, but it really didn’t mattered as long as life was worth living.
—Alan M. Clark
