Summary: 

Bayard and Ringo arrive in the creek bottom, where they see remnants of the old rails from the horse and mule trading operation during the war. Bayard sleeps for almost five hours, then wakes up, crying, and they hear the whistle of the north-bound evening train, "evidently stopped at our flag station" (252).
