children of the last days

"At least 12 pedestrians were killed in a train accident on the Spanish coast near Barcelona, rescue workers said early Thursday. The victims were killed by an express train near the coastal town of Castelldefels, officials said. They were trying to cross the tracks on their way to the beach to participate in a summer solstice celebration.

Eyewitnesses said the victims, who were mostly quite young, had just arrived on a local train at the Castelldefels station. They crossed the tracks instead of using a tunnel or a bridge available for pedestrians. They were hit by an express train on its way from Valencia to Barcelona." Link

The name of the Euromed train station Castelldefels - translates to "Felsenburg", which is also the name of the main character in the apocalyptic book "Lord of the World" by Catholic Robert Hugh Benson, describing a one-world-government under the rule of the Antichrist. Benson loved to ride trains with the engineer in the locomotive. (Already on page one a train is mentioned.Link) "Children of the last days" is another book of him.
