It's been a long journey through the night.  The last one, you hope.  Today is the last chance you have to catch the day train - a train that will take you to a world of eternal daylight, where you will never have to run from the night-time spirits ever again.

Unfortunately, you overslept.  You have an hour and a half to make it onto the train.  Better get going!
