a low rumbling is both heard and felt by everyone occupying the SAMB, and the train tracks running by the SAMB train station start to vibrate...
12 miles away, a long, low steam whistle blast is heard, followed by a short then a long one. the rumbling and vibrating get slowly louder, and, after a few minutes, the rumbling turns into light shaking, a high-pitched whine starts to become audible, things start falling off shelves, things hanging from cielings start bouncing on their strings or wires, the vibration of the rails starts causing them to ring, that high-pitched whine is getting louder...
then, that whistle again, same pattern, except now much louder, and then chugging is heard-
and WoFRR (Wings of Fire Railroad) 4-8-8-4 Big Boy #8016, followed by 4-6-6-4 Challenger #7214, and 4-8-4 Northern #3368, and then diesel locomotive after diesel locomotive, over 3,500 in number, thunders around a curve, doing 90 mph, straight for the SAMB station.
the ground starts shaking so bad that desks and dressers start moving across floors, then fall over, car alarms start going off, windows are rattling-
the behemoths of steam roar by the SAMB station, followed by the whine of 3,500 diesel locomotives.
it's over half an hour before the train starts to slow, as over 1,000 passenger cars round the curve behind the diesels. taking another 5 minutes to come to a complete stop, a conductor hops out, as well as many others up and down the train, placing stools at the doors. they all yell "ALL ABOOOOAAARD!"
it's time to leave for the Newsfeed.

the last corn has been cut,
the last tracks torn up,
but beyond the peaks standing tall
lies fields extending to the shore
and soon we will push through the rainfall
and fill our new home with the dragon's roar
