The travelers, the sudden storm, the isolated house, the eccentric inhabitants and Margret’s final vision of the hanged Miss Roper that is the main theme of this chilling story. Margaret felt something very horrible indeed. It began with the upturned dead face of an old woman Up in the attic old Miss Roper had hanged herself, her gray hair so twisted and meshed as itself to suggest the suffocating agent. Margaret and her companion Mimi take shelter in a train. This begins with the doorbell. Margaret later realizes something about her room, whose barred windows had disturbed her.” and the train entered the tunnel, for forty seconds doubled the already unbearable uproar. It was a long tunnel a nimbus of oily warm air enveloped her almost immediately to be blown away, leaving her shivering. Immediately she has roper had been groped into the pitch-dark bed, a train which seemed of an entirely new construction went past .”I see you are not used to living by a railway “said Roper. Miss Roper, had been signaling from the same window several times a day for years. Perhaps Margaret and Mimi were trapped and no possibility of rescue. On the moors, the air is no longer clung about her, impeding her movements, absorbing her energies, Her bloodstream drew impulsion from the Zephyrs. The Trains is thus the first of many explorations of what one will find if one wanders off the beaten track.
