The wind blew warm from the west, and kicked up a dust cloud across the tracks. The dull iron rails snaked towards the horizon, towards hope, towards home, towards something new, or towards a new adventure.
If you’re paying attention, you can feel it before you hear it–a deep, dull thrumming that reverberates through the wooden station platform, before the high-pitched, throaty whistle of steam lets loose.
Then the El Camino Express is here. Ready to take you away from Carson City to Razorback Ridge, and towards your plans for the future. You can’t wait to get there.
Ain’t many like-minded folk on the train. A frontier town–the word’s an exaggeration–like Razorback Ridge draws the oddest types.
Best you can hope for is a quiet, uneventful journey.
But the famous outlaw, Kit ‘Powderkeg’ McLeggan, has other plans for the train. The name’s from blowing up bank safes, but these days the game’s train robbery.
They’re coming for you.
This quick short Storium story is about what befalls during the train robbery of the El Camino Express.
You’re a passenger on the El Camino Express, seeking family, fame, fortune or a fresh start in Razorback Ridge, when Powderkeg McLeggan strikes.
What will you do?
