Rise by the Rails

I wrote Rise by the Rails soon after reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I knew I wanted to write about the railroads, but I wasn’t sure what about them. I really fleshed out this story when I was assigned a character sketch in one of my creative writing classes. This story is a bit more character-driven than I’m used to, but I really like it. It actually made it into the selection pool for my college magazine, but it wasn’t published. Hope you enjoy it.
