Thymehadder rides the Zombie Train

The Thymehadder crew were looking for some excitement on a Saturday afternoon.  Dressed as Frank West, Velma and Rockabilly Hellboy, we headed down to river to board the Zombie Train.  We met the Sarge upon landing at the Train Station.  He greeted us, assured our safety and let us know the basics of riding the train.

First was to be “checked in” by the doctor and his “pet” to verify that we weren’t already infected because seriously, how messed up would it be to have a zombie on the train?

Upon our clearance, next up was a visit to the armory.  With a wide selection of gun ranging in size, we were paired with guns that fit us the best.  We grabbed some drinks and waited for the train to start.

With all of the passengers loaded up, we left the station headed towards the lab.  We were informed by the Sarge and Doctor that they just completed a cure serum for the Z virus.  Our mission for the day was to take the train to retrieve the serum and bring it back to base where it could be mass produced.   We would be going through highly infested zombie territory.   All passengers are to stay on the train and provide cover once getting to the lab.

Half way to the lab……..wait, this is Zombie Zone…..WHY ARE WE STOPPING.  Wait, why is this drunk girl being allowed on the train?  She is BIT……wait maybe she is just drunk?  Does drinking heavily stop the turning process.  She said it was her birthday 3 days go and she hasn’t stopped drinking yet.  Doctor, I think we need a full analysis.

Now I am not a “professional” expert on Zombies, but I find it odd to have a “pet Zombie” on a train full of food.  To be honest, the Doctor didn’t seem to be that great of a Doctor, Scientist nor responsible pet owner.  So it didn’t come to much of a surprise that said “pet” got hungry and started biting passengers.  Unfortunately, Velma fell to the Zombie pet.  While the turn was slowed by one of the Doctors serums, it didn’t seem to be working all that great.

Finally made it to the lab….what in hell happened here!  Too much whiskey?  That can’t be true!  The doctor and sarge head into the lab to extract the Zombie Cure.  Watch out SARGE!  FIRE FIRE FIRE.  Sarge get back to the train.

Concern over Sarge’s zombie bite grows among the passengers.  As the Sarge starts to turn, the question comes up, use the one and only sample of the serum on him or shoot him down.  I said shoot him down (after a selfie obviously) but the Doctor seems to think the Sarge is far too important for the cause to let him turn.  Like I said, I really question this “Doctor’s” opinion.

With the cure now gone, and the lab destroyed to recreate it, melancholy fell over the train and its passengers.  Was the trip worth it?  We lost multiple people on the train thanks to the Doctor’s pet, the mission was a failure, and the only thing left to do now is cap some zombies on the way back and even that lost some pizzazz.

We arrived at the station with the bad status of the mission.  I don’t know what the future holds for the Zombie Train crew, but may the force be with them.  The Thyemhadder crew came with 3, and left with two.  Velma, you will be missed.

RIP Velma
