THE LAST TRAIN FROM HILL STATION


My grandfather’s house was about a mile from a railroad station that was named Hill Station.

The train had been stopping there for 100 years and since people didn’t go to town very often they would ride it to town and back or have all kinds of things shipped there. With the advent of the automobile the need for train service diminished to the point they were losing too much money on that line so they set a time to shut it down.

When the day came when they were going to make the last run me and a cousin got tickets for that last trip. It was exciting for we became a part of the history of the railroad. The press was there and since we were the only passengers our pictures were put in the paper.

There was an auto ferry that connected the East Bay with San Francisco and they ran about every 15 minutes transporting both autos and passengers. The time came when the ferry made their last trip. I took the family and we rode it on the final day it ran. The new bridges across the bay finally put them out of business.

There was a time when the last bullet was fired in WW2, and it was the end of a terrible war that cost million of human lives.

Each New Year’s Day is the beginning and the end of a calendar year and brings us closer to the end of the age we live in. The last day, last hour, last moment of time for this world as we know it will come and there will be a new heavens and new earth appearing for the old will be gone.

There will be the time when the last person will be saved and there will be no more. Think about it, the last one, no more will anyone pray the sinner’s prayer and receive Christ as savior. Who will it be? Who will be the last one to enter and arrive inside the gate?

Many will say I intended to get saved but just never got around to it.

Matthew 13:42 And the angels will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

When the news paper’s article concerning the last trip of the Hill Station train came out there were many who said, “If I had known that was the last trip I would have rode it too,” but it was too late for the last train had already run.

So also when the last one is saved there will be no more opportunity for Christ has came and taken all who were ready. He won’t come again for anymore.
