Description: 

Trains travel directly between Jefferson and Mottstown (like the one that Rosie takes, 276), but to travel from either town to Memphis one has to switch trains, which explains why in this story Rodney "hires a rig" and travels to Kingston, where the "fast train to Memphis" runs on "the main line" (279). (There is a real Kingston in Mississippi, but it is in the southwest corner of the state, hundreds of miles out of the Rodney's way. Faulkner's "Kingston" is a fictional place, perhaps the same fictional place as "Kinston," the town that Horace Benbow moves to at the end of Flags in the Dust and runs away from at the start of Sanctuary.)
