Done in out of Prscott Junction

In a bare board town in the Arizona territory a steam engine idles while water from the Prescott Junction tower pours into her tanks. Puffs of steam periodically hiss from her sides. The weary passengers are not happy that the train will be delayed overnight. When they continue on their journey tomorrow though they might wish that they had stayed after all.

In a train headed out west from Chicago are all the western dreams. Starting a new life, striking it rich, and escaping the law. There are your typical conflicts as well, water, money, land, women, fighting, killing, and just general out west rowdiness. It’s a long slow trip and the passengers are restless, so a galloping train robbery might seem like a nice break from the monotony. Boredom leads to other activities too, you probably know what I mean.

This big as the western sky story has just about everything you’d expect in a western, plus some mysterious cursed tunnels, cattle, and murder happens. Which, in the general picture of things, probably isn’t all that surprising.
