The tenth dream: The railroad tracks. Tiny toy tracks blend into an old rusty switchyard with tracks going in every direction. Frozen boxcars try to fall over in sleep as their wheels are welded to the rails with crumbling rust. The tiny toy tracks pass through tunnels cut in the rails of the real trains. One toy engine, a steamer, is stuck with its stack jammed into a steel tunnel while the wheels turn over and over. A toy train has fallen on its side, spilling open a red stock car. Toy cattle are strewn over the yard.
