Frederica: suicide
Yesterday i saw Frederica.

Although her name sounds cute and feminine, Frederica is in fact a 3500HP locomotive.

A few days ago, we where supposed to ride her a few miles to the depot.
She never arrived...

A few bundles before us, the engineer reported a "presumption of accident". Running on full traction, you don't hear a lot of other noise then the V12 diesel behind you and nothing stops a 1400 ton train running at 90Km/h. The dark of night masks any sight apart from a narrow 30m beam of headlight.

They did a gruesome discovery at the next bundle...
Although the fire department did a job of rinsing it off, they missed specs and spots in the nightly darkness...

Yesterday -36h later- the goop was caked up into black spots of various textures.

The other engineers are quite laconic about it, this time of the year being called "the jumping season"

For someone, all misery ended that night.
For his or hers loved ones, hell just begun

Is it sick that I actually enjoyed this story? Consider

Sounds like the Grimm Brother's version of The Little Engine That Could. ... I don't think it means we're necessarily sick, ... just a tad twisted maybe.

Exactly. I just enjoyed the way it played out. It made it obvious that the mystery-sludge was the result of an unseen suicide (unseen intensifies the mystery-factor) without ever actually saying that that's what happened. Was pretty good. Big Grin
