“A train whistle.”
Daniel’s only experience hearing a train whistle, at least as far as he could remember, was from the third Back to the Future movie. Doc and Marty were trapped in 1885, and they had to steal an old steam locomotive to push the DeLorean up to eighty-eight miles per hour.
The ten year old peeked through the flock, he was near the front of it anyway and there it was.
“A real 19th century steam engine. An old fashioned train.”
It was sitting at a platform. No sign of a town or any other structures, but there were people waiting to board, if they were people at all.
