here's my (admittedly lacklustre) response to "when I woke up on the train..."
I was going to do something entirely different, but I got to thinking about how Leiji Matsumoto's Galaxy Express 999 concepts, and Kenji Miyazawa's novella Night on the Galactic Railroad really inspire me. I've been wanting to do a retelling of the latter for a long time, using my own characters.
This part would be towards the end, when the train is approaching the "Coal Sack", and Campanella (here, Chimera) disappears.
