1880’s Arizona Territory. The hills caught fire, the animals perished, the great cataclysm wrought death upon the world. Fire spread everywhere. Emerging from the hellfire, horrific denizens hellbent on the killing the last remnants of humanity.
Survivors of the inferno took to trains, stagecoaches, horses, anything to outrun the creatures. For the refugees on board Locomotive 689 Charleston it is just the beginning of their trials as they steam for the fabled city, Crescent City.
A place where many say this hell has not touched, a place where the survivors can live without fear.
As each day wears thin for the survivors, patience gives way to anger, the pain of losing loved ones turns to violence and soon the people within the train have nothing more to fear than what is inside the train with them.
This train is the last hope for these people, and it’s running low on fuel miles away from anything resembling safety and with millions of creatures on it’s heels.
Will the survivors on the Charleston defy their differences and overcome loss or will the very thing that unites us all be the downfall of humanity?
