I stand waiting on the deserted railway platform. I look around for a trace of life. Nope, not a single soul. All I can hear is the light breeze brushing through the trees and a distant cuckoo.
Well to be honest, I’ve never seen any train pass through in the three hours that I’ve been here, but this is a small village and a little out-of-ways anyway. But what I do know is that the 10:15 train from Riverton should be here any moment! And with it my husband, whom I last saw…well I actually lost count. And strangely, this feels like a dream and that I’ve been here before…but wait! I can see the smoke in the distance. It’s the train!!!
