You are standing outside Butt Road Railway Station. Its platforms are empty, its departure boards blank, all trains having left the city during the evacuation.

What the description SHOULD say (because it's more accurate)

You are standing outside Butt Road Railway Station. It's empty, and stares at you longingly. A gust of warm wind hits you in the face as you step onto the platform. Every "train" has been evacuated in "the Butt."

History

Butt Road Railway Station had always enjoyed a high passenger turnout before the "Malton Incident" and profits from fares were enough to keep the suburb of Darvall Heights as one of the best maintained suburbs in Malton.

The name of the station is derived from the road which it fronts which in turn was derived from an early 20th century term of endearment which featured in the theatrical production, "My Fair Lady". Coincidentally, the Dutch settlers who first arrived in the area of Darvall Heights and witnessed the customs of the native inhabitants also jocularly referred to the area as Butt Road in reference to a bizarre native ritual they witnessed.

Butt Road

Butt Road is the street adjacent to the now abandoned Butt Road Railway Station, it was constructed after the Great Fire of 1912 which cleared the area's existing wasteland to be replaced with residential development and parks.

In post apocalyptic Malton the street name may seem somewhat crass however in the early 20th century the word "Butt" was a term of endearment. An example of this can be found in the theatrical production "My Fair Lady":

Dick: My, Violet! What a delightful head garment you have.
Violet: Why thank you good butt, would you perchance a trip down Ol' Butt Road?
Dick: Yes, yes I would. *wink*
