Somewhere west of nowhere, this row of freight cars sleeps away another lazy day. By night they will be painted, for if you park them, they shall come…

When these trash cars first started running in 2009, they were shunned by area writers. Today, they are accumulating quite a collection of tags and monickers from well known writers.
THE TIME HAS COME TO AWAKEN HIM.
