Hump Day Kick Start – Rockabilly Express Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

train

Throwback to the 50s? Modern day rockabilly? Today’s prompt could be either. Or both. Think time travel by train.

Who are they? What are they doing?  Could they be young lovers in a suicide pack? Is he in trouble, going to jump a train out of town? If so, what did he do? Will she go with him? Are they alternate dimension time jumpers who track fugitives and are waiting for their next connection?

You know how this works. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.

    this one’s easy:
    “Frankie and Johnny was sweethearts”
    – – – –
    Johnny: Okay, ready?
    Frankie: This is dangerous, you idiot.
    Johnny: It’s okay… train’s on that other track. Now you reach inside my jacket and hold on tight.
    Frankie: I’d rather be about four tracks farther over.
    Johnny: Nevermind. You’ll love it. The thrill.
    Frankie: So what happens after the train goes by?
    Johnny: Then I’ll reach inside your sweater and hold on tight.

    Sounds like you might have done this before, Jeff. 😉 I’m with Frankie. Four tracks over is enough thrill for me when it comes to speeding trains.

    actually, just last month, right here in Somerset, a young couple were both killed by a train in a similar situation. Supposedly they thought the approaching train was on Track One but it was really on Track Two and it was too late when they realized it. Tragic.

    it puzzled me how the investigators were able to determine the thoughts of that couple (unless they were just guessing). I have to assume drugs or alcohol were involved, but I don’t have any facts.

    >>>I have to assume drugs or alcohol were involved<<<

    I would have to agree. The only other explanations that would make any sense would be a suicide pack or murder/suicide.

    hey, sorry to put a damper on this cool photo. But that was the first image in my mind when I saw it.
    If you think it will bum out the other readers, feel free to delete these threads about that incident here nearby.
