Train not departing

We stood inert, gazing at the hulk of vandalised metal before our eyes.

“Now what?” I whispered helplessly.

I could hear their footsteps approaching.  The wind hurled loose sheets of tin repeatedly against the roof, a solemn timekeeper of the precious seconds we were losing.

“This must be it.” He didn’t sound convinced.  “This is where he told us to come.”

I looked over my shoulder.   I could see the faint beams of their flashlights a short distance away.  Standing on the open platform, we had nowhere to go.  In a moment, they would find us.
