Riding trains when I'm not in a basement aiming lasers, or at least visiting South Station when there's a break in the action.

Just type [spoiler] and then [/spoiler]

I used to be with ‘it,’ but then they changed what ‘it’ was. Now what I’m with isn’t ‘it,’ and what’s ‘it’ seems weird and scary.

Doesn't look any worse than some actual station stops I've seen.

In any case inactive stations along active routes are still fair game! :)

I think this is becoming just that sort of thread, although some have bent the initial rules set out. I thought TCRT would have to either post the next pick, or pass the privilege on to the next player. This makes me want to go through all of my old photos, though, and be ready to play along!
