  1. It was a long strip going down as far as I could see. The metal rattled as the monster quickly approached, unable to move I was paralyzed in fear. I thought to myself is this the end? Then I closed my eyes, and it went black.

  3. Railroad tracks are tricky. A lot of people seem to accidentally fall and die there, but I hardly think that was the original intention of the railroad tracks. I used to have dreams when I was a little kid that I would trip over railroad tracks and a train would come up, and I’d be killed by death of squishy.

  4. The movement of the train reminds her of swimming in choppy water, bouncing slightly, moving in all directions at once. Getting on was letting go and she’s given everything over to the motion of the railroad.

  7. The tracks of the railroad ran into the future. Which way should we go? There’s a choice but less than we thought.

  8. distance carries
    old hopes
    and they drag along the railroad track
    but luckily
    none care to wave goodbye
    which is better
    because the looks on their faces must be
    so painful
    like a child who is told that

  9. I got tired of my life one day and decided to walk along the railroad. I walked and walked and walked until the sun went down. I walked until I was too hungry to keep going and fell asleep on some rocks in a wooded area. My cell phone woke me up. Work. I threw the phone into the woods and kept on walking the tracks.

  13. We’re all on a train going down a railroad. Most of the time we can’t control the speed we’re headed at or the direction we go in but every once in a while we have chance to adjust the tracks.

  14. running down the tracks, destination pre-planned. no alternate routes. point a to point b. such a simple, structured life, it makes certain you get there. but not much interesting happens on a track.

  19. It wasn’t strange that he was stranded, in the middle of nowhere, with just his bag and a cellphone with no battery. This situation was normal for someone who travelled with no destination, just for the sake of travelling.

  20. People get hit by these because they lack the brain power to not go on them. That sounds too harsh. Let me rephrase. People get hit yearly by trains because they dare to test their 1 life that they have to cross it without being hit. It sounds crazy, but it’s all about the adventure.

    By Tara on 07.03.2012

  21. I like trains. Especially train movies. They add great adventure. I always thought it would be cool if you could hop on a car and drive to somewhere. Without knowing where you were going. Nothing to stop you.

  24. railroad is where trains drive on. they go on and on and on . these tracks are for trains to carry things and people around in . they are long and can go over lots of terrain like deserts. Railroad uses two are almost like alliteration but its one word.

  25. at the end. it separates us from you.
    you don’t remember who i am anymore do you?
    nostalgia i suppose you’d like to call my condition.

    that hurts.

    do you?

  26. He didn’t know what to use them for. I’m not sure how many pieces of wood and iron Arek used to make them, I think he thought it was a waste of his time. He saw it as a waste of resources too.

  28. trains pull into the train station on the railroad to happiness. This railroad came from deep within us and ventured to places far beyond our reach. This railroad is heavenly, it’s all things you wished it would be, joy, beauty, health, youth, color, love and freedome. The railroad to happiness is endless. It takes us to new places, far away places and puts a smile on our face everytime we stop along the way. This railroad was built by people like you and I, people who know its a journey to reach happiness but it’s well worth the stops along the way. We travel this railroad and see facinatingly happy people along the way, they have great stories about their journy along the railroad, about the stops they made and the sites and feelings they saw and felt. Take this railroad and enjoy yourself. free your mind and let the railroad take you along, spread your wings along the railroad and live the joy.

  29. The creature stirs at the edge of the bushes, listless, ready to bolt. Her restlessness causes the hair on the back of her neck to stand on end, until finally, her pent up energy releases itself in one huge surge. She bolts across the railroad tracks, hears a high-pitched screeching noise, turns her head and encounters a bright light searing her vision, and then…darkness.

  30. When I built the railroad with stones from the neighbors driveway I intended to run away in a boxcar with all my petals wrapped in a bandanna but they caught me up like a firefly and held me in a paper cup that smelled of lemonade and the grit that was sugar made me stick around for the rest of my childhood when it dissolved and left me stranded on the other side of the tracks.

  31. Long and straight, they provide the best routes from place to place. The old trains from long ago used steam, and were a sign of a romantic era, now a days electric speed hungry monsters have less aesthetic appeal, but perhaps get the money savvy folk to their destination quicker.

  32. one day I was working on the railroad. I have been employed with trainway motors for about two years and am hoping to be promoted. I actually want to drive the trains, because right now I just shovel coal. Its hard work but at least it pays well.

  33. Railroads were crucial to the expansion and economic growth of America. We would not be the same country without them. They led to quicker shipping, and not to mention countless jobs. They also gave immigrants a line of work.

  34. The railroad was in the middle of two towns. Two towns which totally hated each other. But there was a reason for their hate. The town south of the railroad was composed of African Americans. The town north of the railroad was composed of white people. In 1920 Alabama.

  35. I feel railroaded. A lot. I sit at this desk and stare at the wall. I just ride this life that others seem to like. Or say they do. I don’t rock the rails or get off. It’s money. Really good money. The only price is that I have to ride these rails till the end. I’m kind of like a hobo, but not in that i don’t work. In the fact that I don’t belong on this train.

  38. Life is kind of like a rail road.
    It takes you to destinations you need to stop at and experience.
    You may not like some of the destinations. Sometimes, it’s impossible to escape them.
    But if you work hard enough, you can get another ticket to another place to go.

  39. My best friend loves trains. He has this AMAZING trainset in his garage that has an entire town around it, all centered around a huge railroad track. It is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. The town was built by himself, painted and all. The train works, with lights and signs, and all the fixings!

  40. The raliroad was abandoned by the empty trains, allowing the teenagers of the neighborhood a unique place to gather. Though they often were not innocent it didn’t matter. They were having fun in a place that once was so serious and there was something beautiful about that.
