Q: Why cant I post new stories? :(

A: Do you know?

Time ago, when trains used vapor to work, I was the centre of the attention of the railroaders, the pride of the stationmaster, always perfectly cleaned, lucid, and lubricated.
Now that nobody care about me I’m not useful and I see trains pass, fast, not like the old ones, they painted me like a clown and I stay here waiting for some kids who want to climb over me, and for some photographer to get me a shot….

Un tempo, quando i treni funzionavano a vapore, io ero il centro dell’attenzione dei ferrovieri, ero l’orgoglio dei capo stazione, sempre perfettamente pulito, lucidato e lubrificato.
Adesso che nessun si cura più di me e non servo più a nulla e vedo passare treni velocissimi non come quelli di un tempo, mi hanno dipinto come un pagliaccio e rimango qui ad aspettare qualche bambino che ha voglia di arrampicarsi su di me e che qualche fotografo mi faccio qualche fotografia…
