The Abandoned Train Station



Estimated reading time โ€” < 1 minute

There is a chance that while on a railway journey across country you will pass a
darkened station, the platform will look as if it has been deserted for years. The
train will have to slow down due to the condition of the tracks but it will not
stop. There are some conductors who will go much faster than they should just to
get past the station causing the train to feel as if it will shake apart.

If you ask one of the personnel on the train about the station they will tell you
not to worry about it and to go back to your seat. If you ask a second time you and
all your things will be unceremoniously dumped at the next station whether it is
your destination or not. There you can wait for as much as a day for another train
to come by.

There have been a few curious folks who have made the five mile long walk down along
side the tracks to see this abandoned station for themselves. No one knows what
happens what happens when they get there. Some are never seen or heard from again
and others jump onto the tracks in the path of the next oncoming train.

The only thing of any interest ever to happen along those tracks was back in the
early 1900โ€™s when a train headed west derailed near that abandoned station killing
sixty one people on board and injuring others. The incident was blamed on Conductor
error and on the fact the rails were misaligned due to shifting of the ground after
a heavy rain storm.

There is no known connection between the derailment over one hundred years ago and
the events that surround the area today.

    Here is a theory about what happens to the people who get there, you see the people who get there will hear a train coming and go out side, nothing, then you see something on the tracks, they go get the thing and then they get hit by a train before they get up on the platform.

  2. The way the writing was set out really distracted me. Was a bad pasta anyway but made even worse by the bizarre layout.

    This one would be ten times better if it stopped at

    “…and others jump onto the tracks in the path of the next oncoming train.”

    The possible explanation at the end ruins the entire story.

  4. @Mordemkip:

    As strange as it sounds today, there were so many train accidents early in the 20th century that one happening wasn’t exactly something that would make national news. Trains today are much safer than they were then; at that time, there were several accidents involving trains going off of the rails, and trains with coal stoves in passenger compartments were basically tinderboxes, meaning any survivors would inevitably burn to death.

  5. If the train de-railed and people died but nobody who stops at the stations survives, then how did they clear the mess of the wrecked train away?

  6. “No one knows what
    happens what happens when they get there.”

    Nobody knows what happens TIMES TWO.

    Mysterious.

  7. What makes me lol is how it makes it sound like a major rail disaster in the 1900’s is no big deal (No big deal… no connection here, theres no link at all!)

  9. The location wasn’t named =P It just says across country lol Still a pretty good one, except that lack of specifics.
