Look out!  A train's coming!  The children tried their best to get off the tracks but there was no chance.  They laid down flat and the train passed over them.  That was close.  But there is no train scheduled to be going through town at this hour.  Could it be a ghost train?  No, a ghost train couldn't feel as real as that one did.  And then there's the bag with the pistol.  And the note:  Electric storm not on schedule.  Wait for my signal.  The goat will pay.  Now what in the world is that supposed to mean?
