Passing Through on the Number 8 by auntietk ()
When we were at the beach in the fog the other day, I just happened to turn and see a train going by.
Usually there is sound. You can hear the train coming from a mile away, the sound of the wheels on the track amplified across the water.
On this day, I heard no train. Perhaps the fog muffled its approach. Perhaps it was the Number 8 passing through.
There's no way to tell, of course. A train coming out of the fog might be the local carrying empty containers back to the city, or it could have a single passenger bound for Pekkur, his pockets stuffed with catalpa leaves.
I'll leave it for you (and Chip) to decide.

Beach and train so close nearby? - how amazing! wouldn't they give a sound with a foghorn for a warning? What a superb composition, luck was on your side - but also skill, to know when to go click ... great timing! brill pic, if you ask me - in fact it is so good, it has become an instant FAV! BB
The fact that you only see the one car, the engine, with its three lights (a magical number, of course) means that this must surely be a special express that goes nowhere dull and normal. That's why you didn't hear it, all of its sounds are in another dimension, to be sure. What eerie lighting and fantastic atmosphere you captured here! Wow!
