Sometimes my friend and I go bicycling past this abandoned railroad. Maybe because of Mario Kart 64 or my subconscious suicidal desire, I have an unexplainable desire to go on railroads… Usually I don’t have the guts to do so, but this time I went to explore where the railroad ends.
I planned to bike, but my bike had a flat tire, so I walked. Oh how long it has been since one walked somewhere! Oh how little I have stepped on the sidewalks made for walking on! Oh what interesting things I saw and thought about on my long journey to where the railroad ends.
Finally after about 1.5 hrs (30 min I spent buying bicycle tube and etc.), I arrived at my destination. This was the end of the railroad, which I couldn’t access:
And tracing back from the end of the railroad:
So I ventured off into the railroad as if I was in some video game, and found lots of suspicious things about this place:
Once I got deep enough, I was almost spotted by some suspicious people! I quickly hid between the train cars and observed these people talk among themselves suspiciously. And while I was hiding, I noticed these strange things:
There was another factory to my left, with people working as well. To get a better view, I climbed up the train, despite the dangers of exposing my location to suspicious personnels.
All my observations raised more questions than answers. Why does this place exist? What do they do? Why does the railroad end here? How to explain these artifacts scattered across this place? Why are they so suspicious?
However, I had been spotted by the security cameras, so soon I would be attacked by hostiles with guns. Plus, it was getting warm and I was hungry. So I walked back home, a little more knowledgeable about this world, yet significantly more curious. I have seen where the railroad ends, but understand neither why it ends nor where it begins.
P.S. On my journey, I also learned that I live near a shoe central! Who knew? Check out all the shoe businesses I saw here.
