The train is stopped only 15 feet from the platform. The destination is plainly visible.
"Are we there yet?".
"Not yet. Soon, I promise."
The train is practically in free fall with no sign of slowing down. The trestle is visible just ahead. Correction, what was once the trestle, because now there's no bridge across the canyon.
"Are we going to stop?"
"Yes, I'm sure we will soon. Because, if we didn't ... We will. I promise."
