Description: 

To get to the site of the bridge where he plans to commit suicide and later to get back to Harvard from the picnic site Quentin takes an "interurban" train rather than the city streetcars that he takes before and after this trip out of Cambridge. Though both interurbans travel close to the river, they don't seem to follow the same route - at the end of his ride back to Cambridge he must take a trolley that crosses the river and takes him almost back to the post office where his travels had begun that morning. When he leaves his dorm room at the end of his section, he is planning to travel one last time on one of these trains. There is no evidence that Faulkner had specific routes in mind for any of Quentin's travels by trolley and train, but we have created two separate Locations to indicate the difference between the city trolleys and the interurban trains.
