Flying Steamrollers Part II

Weighing 575,000 pounds, the Empire State Express No 999 was the first wheeled object to obtain a speed of 100 MPH. The cheering crowds could n'er realize that someday a wheeled object would reach the outer realms of the universe. That train is Galaxy Express 999. The plot: a waif wants an indestructible body. The only place to get one was the planet Schwell some trillion miles away at the end of the Galaxy Express line. When Tetsuro reached the planet Schwell he did not have to pay for an indestructible body. They were giving them away. No one wanted to live forever because they became irritable.

You should join me at the Edwardian World Fair and Ball this fall. It's the go-to event for steam punks. Start brushing your top hat or bowler now.
