"Life is Like a Mountain Railway" is a PBP game of Ghost Lines being run by Danny_K.

The game is about a small group of newly trained railroad bulls, whose job it is to ride within and on top of the electric trains as they travel the deadlands between cities and keep ghosts from harming the trains and the people on board. It's lonely, dangerous, frightening work, but essential to the continuance of civilization. Let that be a comfort to you, bull.
