We live encapsulated by the trains. They go around in a perfect oval at all hours, stopping for thirty-five seconds in each section So the commuters are able to board and depart. Beyond the tracks, after the fence, there's sky. Engineers crafted a scope so they can see the ground below us. We can see tall buildings and other sorts of trains--some of which disappear underground or rise onto bridges. We can see patches of cities and towns that appear like one of Lex's blankets.
