Writing Prompt “Train Station”

We are moving!!

Please post your stories here:

Theme: This post is for stories related to the prompt: “Train Station”.

Maybe while waiting for the train you have a chance encounter with a beautiful woman, perhaps you find a mysterious suitcase waiting on the platform with your name on it, perhaps the station is haunted but you’re the only one who can see the spirit of the one who threw themselves onto the tracks, perhaps you must slay the dragon living in the train station bathroom or exterminate the trolls demanding a toll for the train to pass (which is very inconvenient – making everyone late for work), perhaps it is a post-apocalyptic train station that you’ve made your home and now you must defend it from a band of marauders.

Whatever the scenario, feel free to use this image as inspiration, as it was my inspiration for this prompt.
