The solution to one of the more obvious problems of the steam carriage, trains of the Aeldrum setting function much like they do on Earth: as a self contained location for side stories, hijinks, and high adventure. As sleuths from Sherlock Holmes to Hercule Poirot have realized, the train is a great place to both advance the plot (by transporting characters from one location to another) and to have excellent entertainment in the form of the other passengers, the inevitable gambling car, harassing the lady with the dessert cart, and of course the odd scuffle at the bar. Trains are also excellent locations for bandits, communists, and other generally unlawful types to have shootouts with the authorities, usually over something locked in one of the cabins.
