End of Line


  • Describe this building without using the words ‘house’, ‘rock’ or ‘clouds’.
  • Who lives here?
  • Why do they live here? What do they like about this place? Do they know each other?
  • What travels on the tracks? Where do they lead?
  • Why is this the end of the line?
  • What are the two people doing? How do they feel?
  • How do you feel about this place? Why?
  • Do you think this is a real place?
  • What does ‘end of the line’ mean?
  • Is there a deeper meaning to this picture? What could it be? [Could this be a place people come at the end of their life, or after they have died? Could it be a prison?]

    Max woke up to find himself way past his stop. “Excuse me can I please get off here?” He shouted. The train came to a holt and Max jumped off. But where was he? As the train started to leave he screamed “WAIT! PLEASE WAIT!” But the train did not stop. He turned around and saw a huge six story house nestling on the cliff. He gasped in disbelief whilst he shuffled towards the edge. “A floating cliff!” He scampered towards the train track. No screen to tell him how long, no maps. He was stuck. Max knocked on the door, no reply. “Oh no!” He muttered.

    Q1~ The building was strangled in air and was covered with graffiti around the outskirts. Where did those trees come from ? Where was the man meant to be going ?
    Q2~ Maybe it’s a block of flats. It looks like an old man lives there, but also looks like there is a little boy living there too. So maybe the ages vary.
    Q3~ I think they like this place because it is isolated from the outside world.
    Q4~ maybe a magic train rides on the track and takes them to ANYWHERE they want to go.
    Q5~ it’s the end of the line because maybe that’s the last place you can go on the magic train.
    Q6~ maybe the building had been detached from the Earth at night and the people are feeling anxious and scared.
