These are the people who ride on the passenger trains that several of the major characters in Flags in the Dust travel on: for example, the train that brings Horace back to Jefferson or the one that takes Jenny and Old Bayard to Memphis. In the second instance we are told that some of the people "in the car" knew the Sartorises, but otherwise they are not individuated (245). (Under the Jim Crow laws, railroad cars were racially segregated, so all these passengers would have been white.)
