Orphan Train

by Angela B.

Disclaimer: Sadly they are not mine.

Warning: A child does get seriously wounded in this story. Shootout & death of original very minor character.

Note: When I started this I had no intention of turning it into an epic. The children are fictional. They are a combination of several children I read about in my research for this story.

Thanks: to NotTasha for betaing this for me about four times. She really helped me

out a lot. And to Libby for her ideas and feedback. I much appreciate both of their help. So, if you find mistakes it sure isn’t their fault.

Explanation: For the benefit of this story I used wagons to deliver the children. As we all know the railroad hadn’t quite reached Four Corners at this time.

Spoilers: very brief references to The New Law, One Day Out West, Manhunt and Penance
