Dining Car

This mysterious train pulled up at the station and has silently lurked there ever since, engine cooling, and often with strange sounds coming from its mysterious cabins. What secrets can it be hiding? What threats await?

"No... I need... inside... write, I need to write, inside... inside I will be... be just fine, thank you... just let me write", Jonathan says as he takes a pen and a notepad out of a pocket with shaking hands.

"You can write in the Baggage Car," whispers Kate, ushering him onwards. "We have to get out of here before the conductor comes back."

"Sure, sure friend, you need to write, hey, there's a desk right through there," Artemis said in the same focused tone helping to move Jonathan along down the corridor and back into the boot between the cars. "It's a nice desk, a bit oddly decorated, but you could sit there and write it all out."

Artemis' face noticeably twitched when he mentioned the desk. His mind shut out the mental equivalent of a twitch as he recalled the blur that caused him to shudder earlier. He continued to nudge Jonathan forward while holding both his flashlight and walking stick in his hands.

Spoiler:
yes you can make a separate roll per person to help them regain Stability.


There's the sound of a plate dropping and shattering in the dining car, coming from somewhere behind the twitching red curtain, followed by a high-pitched scream that sounds not entirely human.
Is it bad that I listen to this about ten times a day?

"Hurry," hisses Kate, pulling Jonathan along.

Spoiler:
That will have to wait until we get back to the Baggage Car.

Artemis heard the scream and pushed Jonathan forward.

"Move it soldier, move it now. His voice was still just at a whisper, but now the cold was laced with steel. "You move now, and you can write at a desk."

Jonathan meekly follows the instructions of the others, although reluctantly. He doesn't seem to really want to leave, and needs to be pushed and encouraged.

They leave the Dining Car and enter the in-between space with the ragged hole gaping in the canvas wall. They could squeeze through there and enter the platform or head into the darkened confines of the Baggage Car.

"Shall we proceed to the Baggage Car?" asks Kate.

"Aye, to the baggage car," Artemis agreed and continued pushing forward.

They return to the cold gloom of the Baggage Car.
