“First came the trains, and with them came the settlers. English, Dutch, German and French, bringing their towns with them: Paris, Roma, Barcelona... and Marseilles... And they called it their land, and decided they could do with it as they pleased.
And for us who’d been there before they put us on top of the hill, out of sight, and they called it Railway, because most of us were working on the train lines. When Marseilles was happy, Railway was fine, and we were fine for a long time. But when the towns started to die – Paris, Roma, Barcelona – Marseilles began to worry, and when Marseilles started to die they took it out on those closest at hand...”
